Allsorts - lavender and lace

Morning all,
time for a new challenge at Allsorts, themed Lavender and Lace.
I made this card - using a Kenny K image and paper from TH - to our Master Director in Snowflakes for her wonderful work this term. I found the sentiment online and I really like it!

Allsorts - Outside the box

It's not that I'm cheap, but I always take an extra look at things around me to see if I can use them in the craft room. Sometimes the most ordinary thing can be used in new and creative ways. And that's why the challenge at Allsorts this week is to think outside the box - to use something that wasn't meant for crafting in the first place.
I took the foil wrapper from my favourite chocolate bar and embossed it. It works splendidly as a backing paper for the image - and the card smells delicious as an extra bonus, hehe!

SFTW - anything goes

Since it's Midsummer's Eve the weather has to be slightly crappy - of course. But with tasty friends and funny food it will probably be ok :).

So, the new challenge at Stampin for the Weekend is wild and crazy and anything goes. I decorated a glass jar with an image from LotV, all in my favourite colour blue =).

Allsorts - Time for tea

Morning all,
summer holidays are here and I'm on my way back today from the south (been with Lotta - a collegue and friend - to visit Ingela - a former collegue - who has moved to Åhus). And now no more work until mid-August, woohoo!!

But the focus of the post is the challenge at Allsorts where we want you to be inspired by the phrase Time for tea. So I made a tea box, can't have too many of those hehe.

Allsorts - in the garden

Morning,
I wonder what the world is coming to. We have never had such glorious weather this early in June. It's like my garden has exploded in a couple of weeks, and it has never looked like this before Midsummer - ever. I love it of course, I just hope it continues... =)

Anyhow, the challenge at Allsorts this week is - very suitably - In the garden. I made a clean and simple card using a Crafty Individuals stamp. The die is bought at the local supermarket ICA. Sentiment is Floonz stamps.

SFTW - cute

Morning,
getting an extra holiday on a regular Friday (because it was our national day yesterday) feels very luxurious =).
And it's time for another challenge at Stampin for the weekend so I've made a gift bag for this next challenge, themed cute. I was actually extra pleased with the colouring of the stamp from Cuddly Buddly.


other challenges:
PTW - anything goes
CCC - one for the boys
crafty ribbons - circle
Simon says - masculine
