Just a short note to show my contribution to the LOTV challenge New beginnings. I totally love this stamp and intend to use it all the time =), it's just perfect and so quick to colour.

Glittering gift box

Back now from a wonderful Christmas dinner with the English society here in town - rosted potatoes, sausage rolls, turkey, trifle, christmas crackers and caroling - the whole nine yards =). It was fantastic and I'm so greatful I get to experience it up here in the cold north.

Today I have a gift bag made from a free template at My time made easy to fit their challenge at the Paper Craft Planet.

DCD - How girly can you get

Last DT mission for Die Cut Dreams for this year because this challenge will run for two weeks and by then we're entering 2011 =). The theme is How girly can you get?

Well, my youngest is very girly so anything made for her would be perfect. I made a wallet for all her photos and notes that she has at school using a paper I bought in Ullared this summer, and a mini Magnolia image.

Allsorts -anything goes

Really easy challenge at Allsorts this time - and it will run for a fortnight =). It's Anything goes at Allsorts over Christmas so what are you waiting for?

I made a Christmas ornament, using a Tilda image, embossed cardstock and crumbled the doily slightly to give it some more life. It will be lovely in the Christmas tree if the cats don't eat it...

DCD - fairies

Morning, it's Monday so it's time for a new challenge over at Die Cut Dreams. This week it's fairies and when I saw this little fairy mouse in the candy bowl I just knew I had to use it. It's from a Panduro cut out sheet so I haven't done any colouring myself, except for the sentiment that I stamped on the image. The backing paper is also Panduro, and the string! Lovely company that =)

Allsorts - Last minute Christmas

This week at Allsorts the theme is Last minute Christmas and so I found it fitting to show you one of my bottle tags. It's an easy to make tag that you can hang on the neck of a bottle or on a door handle or on your nose or where-ever =). I used a spellbinder die as a template to make the shapes on the top and bottom of the tag.

DCD - seeing triple

Welcome to yet another challenge at Die Cut Dreams. This time the theme is Seeing triple -make three different simple cards. I'm not sure my projects classify as "simple" but they have the same theme all three of them. It's a very summery theme but I just had to get away from all the Santas and raindeers =). Images from LOTV and paper from TH.

Allsorts - light up the night

Morning,
it's my turn to host the Allsorts challenge this week and since I live way up in the northern parts of absolutely nowhere ;) winter brings serious darkness here. So I need your help to light up the night. Use a candle or other light on your cards or projects and dazzle me. It will warm my soul - and frozen fingertips. I used an image from LOTV and made the light bulb extra warm and glowing =).

SFTW - recipe

This fortnight there's a recipe challenge at Stampin for the Weekend so sharpen your scissors =). The recipe is: Two circles, two squares, button and bling.

The image is a freebie from here, the patterned paper is home made using the Vintage garden stamp set from Stempelglede, distressed with Vintage photo. The camera did of course ignore most of the bling but it's very glittery around all edges, trust me.
