DT WOJ challenges # 103: Jane´s fantastic sketch

I can hardly believe how fast time has run by these past few months! Here in Sweden we still have the most gorgoues wheater :) Feels like summer is already here :) An amazing feeling but..at the same time it makes me a wee bit worried about the rest of the actual summer. If summer is here in april what will wheater be like in june, july and august? I´m hoping for wheater just as smashing as this, because we want to do so much when Johan is home with us during his holiday.

Well, time flies and this fortnight it´s already time for a new challenge over at Whiff of joy! My teamie and dear friend Jane has created this fabolous sketch for us all:

Thank you Jane, I had so much fun creating after this lovely sketch!
The patterned papers I have used for this card comes from a Prima paper pad called "Madeline" and I truly loved then when I saw them. I stil loved them while I choose which ones to use but then it just stopped..I had like no inspiration! Kept thinking it was so strange but now that I see the finished result I realize the colours are so much darker then the ones I usually go with. But in the end I´m kind of satisfied anyways. ;) I love, love, love the WOJ image it´s called Dancing Willow. The sentiment is part of the matching kit named City girl sayings.
So come on you talanted ladies, grab your gear and a WOJ image of your choice and start creating! We would love to see you join us :) If you´re still not completly sure..I advice you to run over to the Whiff of joy challenge blog and be inspired with the lovely work my teamies made - again :)

"Old school" Tilda is bringing someone flowers for their b-day

Today I have a another Magnolia card to showcase :) I was going through my stamps to find the "right" one and oh boy! I´m going to have to sell some again..You would probably think this is one of my very first Tildas but I actually bought it when I last visited the Maggieshop in Borås ;) Which was this february ;) He,he,he! I think she is so cute! I actually don´t care much for the early on Maggies but I couldn´t resist this one.When I first saw her I imagined her bouquet of lilacs with flower soft on them and I´m far from a flower soft expert but I think the end result is pretty nice :)
I have made this card by comission from an old coworker of mine.
It is also the first time I have used my doo hickey fence. It´s one of those things I have had in my stash for quite some time but didn´t get around to using until now. Feels good! It is way to beautiful to lay around collecting dust..
I´m hoping my coworker will like this as much as me ;)

Hurra = hurray
grattis = congrats

I´m hoping you´re all having a lovely time :) You may have noticed I have been well..not posting that much lately ;) You know what? We are having splendidly beautiful weather here in Sweden, right now! And I love it, enjoying every single day in the sun and I feel my scandinavian soul being recharged with energy after what must have been the longest winter ever...I´m really NOT a winterloving person so you can surely imagine me in my garden ;) Face up ;) I´m also very happy you don´t have bloggervision because you would think I´m blushing 1000 times over...He,he,he!
I´m very exited about this post :)  It is my very first as a dt for Magnolia down under challenges! Yay! I´m so happy to be joining these extremily talanted ladies, to work alongside them is a true honor for me Thank you ladies for inviting me :)

Enough about me, I´ve been rambling on for a long time now, so let´s get down to business ;)
We have an amazing challenge for you this fortnight, it´s a sketch made by my very treasured friend Kylie K. I had a blast working with it, thanks hun

I made a gift box for someone very special to me, won´t mention her name here, cause she´ll know it´s coming for sure ;) It´s my way of saying thank´s for being such a good friend to me. I will buy her a gift and put inside the drawer as well :) On top of it I placed a matching twisted easel. Used another one of my fav images from the latest Maggie Butterfly collection, she´s called Beautiful Tilda.

Run off to the MDUC challenge blog and check out the gorgoues work by my fellow teammembers. I guarantee you´ll be inspired and we are hoping you´ll join us. Can´t wait to see what you make off this amazing sketch :)

Today I have some news to share :)
I got an email a few weeks ago from the very talanted AND kind Kylie asking me IF I want to join the wonderful dt over at Magnolia down under challenges! And well those of you who knows me a bit better can imagine I didn´t have to think about that for long? To tell you the truth I didn´t have to think at all! ;) OF COURSE was my answer and on sunday you can tune in here to see my very first contribution :) I´m more then a little anxious about it. ;) Have to come up with something really smashing ;) The other ladies are so awesome and I have been stalking them all for so long :) I won´t stop doing that but hopefully I will get to know them all a lot better!

And guess what? That´s not all! The ubertalanted Kellie, owner and founder of the amazingly gorgoues Tickled pink stamps asked me to stay on her wonderful dt after my three month guestperiod! Didn´t have to think about that either! If you´re a fan of these quirky, cute and pink stamps you will be so happy to see the future releases! They´re soooo cool!

Thank you so much for your belief in me, Kel ♥♥♥ It´s a great joy to work along side you and your very talanted {PINK} ladies :)
