Confirmationcard for my son

When my son was confirmand in May I made this card for him.
It is one of these circular cards which you can fold up to an envelope.
This is the card folded up and tied with a ribbon.

This is the back of the card.

This is how the card looks like when it is opened up.
In the pocket in the middle I have copied, printed and cut out some old Norwegian money. This was just a fun way to show my son the amount of money we gave him as a gift on this special day.

When he removed the fake money he could see the tag with more personal message from us to him.

Here also the tag is removed from the card.

His monogram.

Some wise words; Wherever you go, bring your whole heart.

A cute confirmand... :-)

More wise words; You don't make a trail if you follow others.


This is a close-up of the center of the card.

My son's confirmation was in end of May, and it was a great day. Busy, but absolutely a day to remember. It was a first timer for us parents to arrange a confirmation, but we know already that we have more experience when our youngest son will be a confirmand in two years time.

Well, today it's a great day. The sun is shining and it's warm. I have to work overtime, but when I come home I know we will have a barbeque on our terrace. I'm looking forward to that!

Have a great day. Thanks for looking.

Quick birthdaycard for a boy

This card was made in a hurry. Suddenly my son came home with an invitation and I had to make a card.  Really simple design works best when I am rushed.

I received the candle stamp and the muffin stamp in a magazine.

Simple back again.


Next week I am going to my niece's wedding party. I have been looking forward to this for quite a while now but still I haven't made a card to go with the gift. Maybe it's time to sit down and do that tonight..... :-)

Thanks for looking! Have a great day!

And yet another christmascard

This is my seventh christmascard this year. I made it in May, but I haven't had the time to show it here before now.

I have found a way to make the insides and I guess all the christmascards this year will be more or less like this.

Simple back again.

It is definetely vacation in my house nowadays. I am sleeping in every morning and I don't get out of bed until 8 am. It feels good.
I hope that we will get our campervan today. I am looking forward to drive around visiting different places.

Don't forget to visit my blogoversary giveaway. You find it two posts down from here.

Confirmation card for a girl

This card looks like an envelope when it's closed. I have closed it with a ribbon.

This is the upper part without the ribbon.

This is the inside of the card. In the middle there is a tag to write a personal message.


The tag is removed.

This is the tag.

The name of the confirmand.

A good advice; "You don't make footprints where everyone else is walking."

Another advice; "Wherever you go bring your whole heart."

Pretty girl, just like the confirmand.

I have glued the ribbon under the personal stamp to make sure it doesn't disappear when it's opened.


Well, well, well, it's summer and I have started my vacation. Hopefully we can start driving in our new campervan tomorrow!


Don't forget my blogoversary! You will find it in the post below.

Have a great day and thanks for visiting. :-)
