Today I´d like to showcase a card I made for a bloggingfriend of mine that is very dear to me, her name is Maritha :) She always writes me the most encouraging comments and it does mean the world to me that we have been following each other for a long time now. I do hope the card has arrived at her place by now though otherwise she will see it here first and that wouldn´t be much of a surprise, right ;) Her birthday has come and gone quit some time ago and I had a card ready that I could just add her name to but I really wanted to make something for her with her in mind and then it takes some extra time nowadays. ;) I have five weeks left of my pregnancy and right now it feels like she could come any second. She is pushing her way down, practising her big entry like a maniac. Besides this I managed to stretch my left side in some weird way and let me tell you: that hurts like giving birth ;) Ha, ha, ha! I have been sitting up sleeping this night, hope I don´t have to do the same tonight...
Well...enough of my waffling and on to Marithas card :)
I have used some truly scrummy papers that I just bought, they are by Prima and is called Fairy Belle. The only thing that bothers me sometimes with papers this lovely is the way you don´t want to cover the whole front with loads of detail. Those of you whom knows me will understand what I mean. I LOVE adding details too ;) So bit of a conflict there. I mean who could cover up that lovely fairy? And I see I have a bit ;) Ha,ha,ha! The pom pom ribbon is bought at the Magnolia store in Borås, so is the lovely Tilda that was part of a collection about two years ago I think, don´t know which one though! Absolutely adore her! She is one of the few ones I decided on holding on to as I had to minimize my stash. She is colored with di´s on 300 g watercolorpaper. All of the flowers are WOC. Now, let me tell you about how I stamped on Marithas name on that banner by Spellbinders. I made them using my latest find ;) They are also from Prima and is called Prima Press alphabeth clear stamp set which I bought here at the lovely swedish store Scraplagret
You add the letters you want to a small "box" and then you just stamp away! So cool! I have been waiting for something like this to come out, I just didn´t know about it ;)
I´d like to enter my card in the following challenges:
TOMIC: (The Official Magnolia Inspiration Challenge) They are celebrating the 1st anniversary of this lovely challenge blog by chosing a truly lovely theme: ANYTHING GOES! I love this challenge and I would have liked to join so much more often but time flies, I knew I had to this week though because: YOU CAN WIN A CARD MADE BY SOMEONE IN THE DT!!! Oh....that would be soooo scrummy! Keeping my fingers crossed!
Lovely hÄnglar or sweet Magnolia: use your favorite color sheme!
Mine is pink, blue and white with a splash of brown :) My first time joining this lovely challenge, exiting! Found it through one of my bestest blogging friends this morning, Jane.
