Good morning friends and followers!
Today Im actually a bit ashamed...a while ago I received the most amazing email! Be calm, thats so not why Im blushing right now..Anyways, it was from a beloved and much admired friend namely Chelsea. Im sure you already know about her - her style is through the roof beautiful and vintage and shabby and all the things I love :) She is also the owner of the most awesome sketch challenge blog there is, CLP challenges. I have always done my very best to enter each month because the sketches only are so lush and inspirational and lets face it. We all get stuck sometimes and theres nothing better to help but a great sketch! Therefore I was ecstatic when reading her email, she wanted to add me to her design team and let me tell you I didn't even have to consider that two seconds! Its a YES!
She already had a great dt but as some of them decided it was time to move on not only me but a lot of my most treasured friends in blogland got the same invite. Im so proud to be working alongside these gorge ladies. But then it happened..I chose to be on the reminder post midmonth and that was this friday right? OMG!! My poor little ladies had been ill again and I totally couldnt contribute in time so thats what Im ashamed of. My very first CLP post and I miss out!! Can you believe it! Well, yesterday hubby was at home to and took the little ladies so I could get down and crafty! I decided on making my first CLP card but since its luckily sunday its also my turn to host the gorge LLC blog and I did a combo this time.
Over at LLC we have been busy with interpreting an inspirational picture this week. As always I want to remind you to also look at the adorable creations my teamies has done too while you're there. Its amazing how many ways there is to interpret a picture.
The picture is courtesy of a swedish interior design shop called Ljuva hem, in Nödinge, Sweden. Adorable ha? Right up my alley ;)
It was so easy to sit and create, I had that flow again. Sandra really is so generous and she stocks like..everything i want! The only hard part is to decide on what to use because she now stocks even more gorge embellies! I used some of them on my card. You can see them listed at the bottom of my post but just to mention some, check out that amazing gingham ribbon (sigh..gorge!) and the big lush lace. Not to mention the flower spray! Sooooo my new addiction! Image is Magnolia Tilda and I colored her with my di´s on 300 g watercolor paper.
And since its a combo I followed this luscious sketch at CLP, we would love it if you could come join us! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ASKING ME Chelsea, its a huge honor and I promise: next time I wont be late! Check out the pics below for more of my creation up closer:
Thank you all so much lovelies for checking in with me!
It means so much!
Lots of love,
