Just Christmas and Birthdaycards #10

First of all I want to thank each and everyone who has left me a birthdaygreeting!!! It has been so nice to read all your comments!! I love the cards I received from some of you, both handmade and eCards. Thank you, thank you!!! You made my day!!

I must say my sweet husband gave me one of the best presents. He gave me a new lens for my camera, a 50 mm, f/1.4!!! It is really good to work with. Love it completely! I have this lens on my wishlist for several years and finally I've got it. I'll show you pictures I've taken with it later on. :)


It is Monday and time for a new sketch on Just Christmas and Birthdaycards. Today I've made the sketch :) It will be fun to see what you, gals, will come up with using it!!


My christmascard looks like this. I've finally used this beautiful Santa-stamp again. I've had it for ages but only made one card with it! He is really big so I had to cut him out to still have space left to put on some decorations on the card. I've coloured him in using Twinkling H20.
The papers are from Ladybug and friends, and from Doodlebug Design. Swirlstamp from Stempelglede. Punched out some hearts covered with red glitter on the edges.

On the insert sheet I have stamped Stempelglede's swirl.
Easy back, with paper from Doodlebug Design.



My birthdaycard is made with an image that Karin sent to me (Thank you!!!) I love the motif, and it is quite summery. I have coloured in using a mix of Distress Ink and Twinkling H20. The card is made of Bazzill, but the design paper and both the pink cardstock are from unknown producers. On the pink cardstock I have embossed using Fiskars' embossing pad. I have used buttons from Panduro with Scrapper's floss tied on them. Text stamp ("Birthday") from Kort i hodet.

Inside I have decorated the insert sheet with leaves from Magnolia and text stamp ("Have a lovely day!") from Kort i hodet.

Back made easy.


Today it is snowing outside. Light snowflakes, but it looks like it might change to wet snow later in the day :( My dog, a Siberian Husky, loves to play in the snow and it is so fun to bring her outside now. My husband took her skiing yesterday morning and she loves to do this.

Well, I hope you all will have a great day!

Hugs, Kristin :)

Så koselige kort kristin. Du må nå jammen ha fått litt av en stabel etterhvert? Du har jo laget så utrolig masse fint disse ukene og det er jo en fryd å komme inn her og titte hver eneste gang!
Håper du får en fin uke og at du ikke har det alt for travelt i denne søte førjuls tid? Her hos oss er alt som det pleier på denne tiden av året - nemmelig at hele familien er syk!!!!!
Men sitter nå her og får malt litt motiver innimellom


Stor klem til deg fra
Heidi
