This is my take on this challenge. I made a box to hide a gift certificate inside for a upcoming birthday. This is the front: This is from one of the sides. It looks the same all the way around the sides.
On the lid I have used the sketch. And I have used Oakley with scooter as an image. I have put some bling here and there. The text says 'My friend' and is made by Stempelglede.
This is how it looks on the inside.
This was a fun project to make :) I love to join challenges and am looking forward to see what the next challenge is in Whiff of Joy Challenges.

I have used Katharina Frei's sketch #27 to make this card. I have just rotated it 90 degrees. Inside I used a stamp from Kort&Godt Hobby, and you can find it in my web-shop. The stars and bears is punched out with some old punches and I don't know the producer :)
I have used one corner punch from Fiskars to make the slots on the lower page.
The back. I have used a QuicKutz cookie cutter die to make the circles.
I hope you all have a nice day. The sun is still shining here and now the colours on the leaves are so beautiful. We went for a walk yesterday to a heigth nearby called Kolsåstoppen. We had this beautiful view over the Oslofjord. I took some pictures and I'll show you later on :)

This week in Penny Black Saturday challenge #15 we are supposed to decorate the inside of the card. That wasn't really a challenge for me, since I'm always decorating the inside of the cards I'm making.
But even if the challenge was easy I have used soooo many days on this card. It's just one of those times when you feel that everything is a struggle. Because of the change of the temperature here I have caught a cold, and my head has felt like it has been filled with fluff (just like Whinnie the Pooh ♥). Because of the fluff it has been hard to think properly, and I just haven't been able to do anything without a struggle.
But, now, here is my card. I have used Katharina Frei's sketch #29. I love Katharina's sketches, they are detailed but easy to follow. I used a cute image from Penny Black on the front. I love this cuty kitty! The white paper is from Doodlebug Design, the red paper is from 3ndypapir. I have used QK-alphabet called Metro skinni minis. The ribbons is a left over from the years I lived i South-Korea :)
That's it! I have started a new project and will show it as soon as I have finished. And when that will be depends on how much the fluff in my head disturbs me :)

I have used three chocolate-wrapping-foils (from Anthon Bergh :)) Two of them are put behind the image on the front. I used an image from hÄnglar&stÄnglar. I have painted it like a ladybird because I fell in love with a card I saw in Ett Trykk (a Norwegian stamping-magazine) but I don't remember who made that card :(
Update: I have been told that it is Lena Kathrine Øien that made the card I am referring to, and you can find her beautiful creations in her blog here.
This is one of the folder-cards we were challenged to make some weeks ago in the same challenge-blog. I had to find a smart way to close it up after I hade finished it, so I ended up tyeing some scrappers-floss bits on each corner of the top flap. It doesn't look very smart, but it was the only solution I could come up with, with the supplies I had around me :) The text is a stamp from Else Irene Mehling (it translates "Enjoy your day!")
On the inside I have used a text stamp from Else Irene Mehling (it translates "Birthdays are meant to be enjoyed, Enjoy yourself!"), and a swirl scroll stamp from Stempelglede. I have put a chocolate in the folder :)
At the back I have punched out circles using cookie-cutter dice from QuicKutz. The biggest one is punched out of the last chocolate-wrapping-foil, and the smallest one in plain cardstock. I've stamped my personal stamp from Scrapmagasinet in the middle.
Last week I agreed with Karin Hoeve to join her in a challenge of reaching a personal goal in cardmaking. My goal is to make one Christmascard and one Birthdaycard each week. I reached my goal last week, and now I have finished the birthday-part for this week. That means only one more card to go this week :)
Have a nice day everybody visiting my blog! I would love it if you could leave some words behind before you rush off!!
I have put glitter on the balloons and her hairband, and all over her dress and socks and boots, so she is really glittering. But of course it doesn't show on the picture :( I have also put some bling on the ribbon.Inside I have used some corner stamps from Prima Marketing. By the way, the lilac paper is gift wrapping paper :)The same gift wrapping paper, and a QK circle with my personal stamp from Scrapmagasinet.no.
Now I'll cross my fingers for me being the lucky one winning the candies :)
By the way, if you want to join in on this one you have to do that before it ends the 28th September.

Image from Magnolia. I have put a lot of glitter on her hat, skirt and bows but it doesn't show on the picture :( And I have put some bling around the edge of the circle. Inside, right side with swirlscroll from Stempelglede. Retroflowers on the left side.
Personal stamp from Scrapmagasinet.no is stamped inside one of the circles. I used one of QK's dice.
By the way, if you want to join in the challenge you have to do that before the 27th September.

This card is made for someone I know like blue! She will receive it next week, and hopefully she'll like it! Inside, the swirl is from a QK-stamp set which I got when I bought an alphabet (don't remember the name for the moment).
Easy peasy! Nothing fancy at all!
Bye-bye for now!

I chose to use a stamped image of Whiff of Joy's Charlotte with cat. I love that image :)
(By the way, do you like Whiff of Joy and have the urge to become a Guest Designer there, pop over to their blog; here. They are looking for a new Guest Designer and you can apply before 26th September.)
On the inside I have punched out some hearts. I have had some glossy accent on top of them so that's why it's shining :) I have also used some stamps from Stempelglede in the corners.
The back with my personal stamp.
This is my second Christmas-card for this year. I'm quite happy to have started making some ☺
Have a nice day !

The picture makes the card look so dull and boring. When I see it now it looks awfully flat and not nice at all! Please put on your 'glitter-glasses' !! :)
Other stamps are from Lissie Design (text and butterfly). Paper from Treehouse Memories, and cardstock from Cardstock! On the inside I have stamped and cut out more butterflies.
Back was made simple.
That's it folks. I'll be back tomorrow morning with two winners of my blog candy :) You have still another hour to join in before I close the possibility.
