I have used a giftwrapping-paper as background on both the card and the placecard. It is silver and black but it doesn't show well on the photo. The clock is illustrating the change from the old year to the new year :) It's a stamp from Magnolia's christmas clubkit. It was a hazzle to cut out, but I only had to make four invitations so I thought it was okey. The champagnebottle is a stamp from KH Design. The champagnebottle is a stamp from Magnolia's summer clubkit. The text is a stamp from Ditten & Datten. I have made some cards for a Christmas bazaar my boys' school band is arrangeing tomorrow. I'll show them to you later. I have some troubles with my back and shoulder/arm so I can't sit by the computer as much as I would love to.
I hope you all have a nice day.
Hugs, Kristin :)

I have also another award to show you. Thank you, Camilla and Hanne, for giving me this lovely award!! I am so happy to have received it :) It means a lot to me!
I think I have managed to make an okey card with Janina's (Ninchen) sketch. It is made with papers from my box with leftover-papers. The colours are quite pale (lilac and pink), but I was in that mood when I made it. The image is coloured in using Twinkling H20. The photocorners and letters are made with QuicKutz dies. I punched out some retroflowers and put glitterglue in the middle.Inside I have decorated an insert-sheet with a corner stamp from Prima.
I haven't had the time to make my christmascard with the sketch yet. I have to wait some days as I have a couple of orders from customers to make first. But I'll post my card as soon as I have it ready :)
Now I hope you all are doing well. It seems like everyone are busy nowadays and that there are many people staying at home sick. Take care all of you!!
Hugs, Kristin :)

I have made a circular envelope card for a customer. The lady who ordered the card wanted something with autumn colours, and she wanted this special type of card. The card is for a lady who turns 60 and is a woman who likes to go hiking in the mountain, and go skiing, she has a dog she likes a lot, and she is a very good friend.
The front, with the ribbon which holds the card closed. I have used a leaf punch, the ribbon is from American Crafts, cardstock from Cardstock, QuicKutz alphabet Sophisticated, designpaper from Papirdesign. The front without the ribbon.

I have used the lovely stamp from Sugar Nellie called "Santa with lantern". I fell in love with it and it just asked to be mine when I visited Sugar Nellie. It was fun to colour in, using Distress Ink. I have put some glitter on the white details on Santa's clothes and on the light in the lantern. The text is a stamp from Papirloftet. Designpapers from Papirdesign. Ribbon from stash. I have doodled a frame around the image. Insides. The little textstamp was a gift from my sister some years back.
My birthdaycard is made with a Penny Black stamp. I coloured in using Distress Ink. The text is a stamp from Else Irene Mehling. Designpapers unknown. Prima-flowers (gift from Karin).

I love my new stamp from Stampavie designed by Sarah Kay. It's such a cozy image that it needed cozy and oldfashioned papers so I used two designpapers from 3ndypapir. I have kind of changed a tiny bit on the sketch (which Anita made for this week's challenge), but I think it is recognizable anyhow! Since I put the three big snowflakes on the side there was no space for the text below them, so I had to move it to the left, under the image. The snowflakes are a stamp from Papirgleder, and I have covered them with glitterglue. I have stamped a small snowflake around the edges of the papers. The text is a rub-on from Norsk Stempelblad. Insides:

This time we were asked to follow Heather's beautiful sketch. It was a breeze to use it!
I have used happy Charlie building a snowman. I love this stamp! All the papers are from DCWV's glittered Christmas stack. Except the red one behind the image and the sentiment which is something my husband brought home from South-Korea when he visited last year. The sentiment is a stamp from Stempelglede. Flowers from Prima, and all gems from Doodlebug Design. Insides with same papers as on front. The snowflake is a stamp from Papirgleder.
It's not often I am able to finish up two cards a day, but today I have been really good!! :) But then again, I haven't done anything of all the things I should have done yet. I have to work hard now to get some of the tasks done before I go home :)
Ta-ra for now! Thanks for looking :)
Hugs, Kristin :)
This weeks challenge for ABC Challenge is P for Pink. And I have made a card for my niece. If you can see the background through the flare you can see balloons with the number seven in them. The whole background is made up of stamps from Norsk Stempelblad (numbers from Panduro). The image is from Cuddly Buddly (Thanks a lot, Dorte!!). She is coloured with Distress Ink and Twinkling H20. The text is a stamp from Aud Design, frame from 7Gypsies. All flowers I won in a blog candy giveaway in Karin's blog (Thank you!!) The ribbon is from my stash. On the left side I have used a stamp from Else Irene Mehling. The scalloped circle is a cookie cutter from QuicKutz. The cornerstamp on the right side is from Prima Marketing.

Have a really nice evening!
Hugs, Kristin :)
I really wasn't up for making a card when I sat down to make this. I started early but ended up having to create something in a hurry. I just couldn't find anything creative to do with the dps and image I had chosen, and I didn't have the time to find something else. So here it is. With image from Cuddly Buddly (kindly given to me by Dorte!!!) I have coloured in using Distress Ink. I have put some glitterglue here and there. Designpapers from Bo Bunny and unknown. The cute flowers were kindly given to me by Hege-Annie!!! The text stamp is from Aud Design!
Insides, decorated with a frame stamp from Stampavie (designed by Rachelle Anne Miller), text stamp from Else Irene Mehling. The flowers on the right side is in the same package as the framestamp. I have coloured in using Distress Ink.The back was made in a hurry as well. Nothing really creative here! :)

I have used one of my favourite fabrics from my stash. I have been an avid patchworker/quilter and have lot of beautiful fabrics I just can't get rid of. I have the hope that I one day will have the time to make something with all of my treasures! :) And look, now I have used a small piece of one of them! And it goes perfectly with my hÄnglar & stÄnglar-stamp "Jon Blund". I have coloured in the image using a mix of Twinkling H20 and Distress Ink. I have cut out the image and put foampads underneath. I have put a lot of shiny stars on the fabric and they blend in with the stars already there, but they are a bit more shiny in real life. The number and letters are QuicKutz-alphabet, punched out from a golden hologram-paper. I have put two layers of Diamond Glaze on top to make them more 3D.
I had this feeling that something was missing on the front of the card, but it wasn't until I cropped the photo that I realized what it was. I have forgotten to distress the edges of the card!! I might go back and do that before I send it to my nephew.Close-up of the letters. You can see the hologram-stars on the golden paper through the diamond glaze layers.
The insides. Designpaper from Karen Foster. Text from Papirgleder. The letters "Leo" are stamped with an clearstamp-alphabet i won in Karin's blog candy during last summer (Thank you, Karin).
My boys were so happy this morning when they realized that it's Friday! Since it's getting darker every morning now it's also getting harder to get out of bed. But then again, it's strange that on Saturday and Sunday they haven't got any problems getting out of bed at the same time as the rest of the week!! Without me dragging them out!!!
It is warmer today than it has been lately. And it is cloudy and grey. But as long as I don't have to cover up with rainclothes I'm happy!
I hope you all have a nice day! Take care!
Hugs, Kristin :)

I have used "Charlotte decorating tree" (I must admit I am hopeless at remembering those titles on stamps so just let me know if the title on this stamp is incorrect!) from Whiff of Joy. The text stamp is an old one from Panduro. Flowers from Prima. Gems from Doodlebug Design. Designpaper from DCWV. Cardstock from Bazzill and unknown. I have stamped some snowflakes (from Papirgleder) on the red and green cardstock behind the image. Insides, with the same dp and cardstock and snowflake as on front.
