I received a challenge from Solbjørg.

Go to My pictures.
Choose the sixth folder.
Pick the sixth picture.
Show this picture on my blog and tell about it.
Invite six new people to do the same.

This is my picture. It's not one I've taken myself, but it's my youngest son's class three years ago. They went on a school trip to "Norsk folkemuseum" where they saw a lot of traditional Norwegian houses. My son's teacher has always taken a lot of pictures and put them on the school's website for us parents to view. I have downloaded the pictures where my son is on so I can scrap them or put them in an album for him to keep for later.

 I'm not going to send this challenge to anyone special but please feel free to join it if you like. Let me know if you post anything on your blog so I can come and see your picture.

Bye for now, and thanks for looing.

Hugs, Kristin :)

Two similar cards for boys

My oldest son called me at work one day and asked if it was okey for him to go to a birthdayparty for two boys the next day. "Of course!", I said, but then I started to panic; "I haven't got two cards for boys!!" I didn't even have one card. That meant I had to make two really quick cards, and this is what I came up with.

Thanks for looking!

Penny Black Saturday challenge #83 - sketch 1

Our neighbours got their new babyboy just before christmas and I bought the little one a thing and I made this card to go with the gift.

I found that I liked the sketches over on Penny Black Saturday challenge and since I had this cute baby stamp from Penny Black I thought that I would give it a try. I've coloured the image with Twinkling H2O so it's shining really nice.
All the papers are from my box with scraps.

On the left side the text translates; "There arrived a little prince, the cutest there is."

I used my personal stamp from Scrapmagasinet on the back.

Tonight I will be working late. Before I go I have to finish up some cards for two teenage boys. My oldest son is going to a dobbel birthdayparty tonight and he got the invitation yesterday. I'll show you the cards later, but I'll tell you that they are simple since I didn't have much time to make them.

Thanks for looking, and have a great Friday!

Hugs, Kristin :)

Sukkersøtt #67 - Extravagansa

I love this image!! Aren't these chicks supercute? I think they are perfect for someone turning 50 years!!
And they are perfect for a extravagansa card for Sukkersøtt's challenge this week.

The card is made with Just Christmas and Birthdaycards sketch #53 which is still going on. I was late making and posting my card for the blog, but I still want to make cards using Georgia's lovely sketch.

Thanks for looking.

Kaia's blog candy

Hop over to Kaia's blog to view all her lovely creations and to join her blog candy giveaway.
Last chance is January 31st.

Joakim's birthdaycard

I made this card for my nephew's birthday. He turned 12 years yesterday, but I made the card in December.

I also made a almost similar card for a boy in my oldest son class which has cancer, but I forgot to take picture of that card. I used the same image and papers but the set-up was different.

We have still very cold weather here. Almost minus 20 degrees in the mornings. Gee, I have to dress up so much to prevent getting cold when I go out that I use ten extra minutes just to get dressed!! Winter is lovely but it doesn't have to be this cold!!

I have to make a couple of cards now and hopefully I will have enough inspiration after visiting some blogs. I might find a challenge or two which will fit as well :)

Have a great Saturday and thanks for visiting.

Hugs, Kristin :)

Christmas gifttags

The background is a stamp from Magnolia with the notes and text for Silent Night. The stars are stamped with a stamp from Penny Black.

The backround is a textstamp from Kort & Godt Hobby with the text for the Norwegian christmassong "Deilig er jorden" (my favourite christmassong). The stars are stickers I received from a blog candy I won last year.

The same stars and background stamp as before but in a different combination.

All the tags above looks like these on their back. The text stamps are from Stempelglede.

Here I have used the same background stamp from Magnolia but with angelstickers and text stickers.

The back is a stamp from Ditten& Datten which I have cut around the edge to make a tag.

These tags are stamps from House Mouse and I have coloured in using colour pencils.

To make the House Mouse tags sturdy I glued them on to red cardstock and then I stamped a text on the back (from Ladybugandfriends) and two stars (from Stempelglede).

This tag was the first tag I tried to make this evening and the one I was least satisfied with. I used a textstamp from Else Irene Mehling and around the edges I stamped some leaves from Stempelglede. The picture is really poor sorry.

I used the same tag stamp from Ditten & Datten to make the back.

All these tags I made one evening I visited a crafting friend just in the beginning of December last year. I was really nice to sit down and be creative together with some new people.

We are freezing our butts off for the time being here where I live. We had minus 19 degrees this morning outside, and inside it was only 16 degrees. That's really cold. I feel like I want to hibernate and wake up in three months! I'm just not made for the cold weather!!

Hope you are doing great. Thanks for looking!

For the magazine Ett Trykk

It's amazing that we now are in a new year. 2009 is history and 2010 is all brand new and ready for all of us to make new memories to bring with us. Have you made any thoughts of what to do in the year you have in front of you? I have decided that I will make the most out of it :)

In 2009 I was lucky to be asked to make some cards for the Norwegian magazine Ett Trykk. I got two stamps, one motif and one with a text, and I was asked to make two cards with both the stamps.

This is the first card I made.

On the left inside I used an angel image I received on a placecard when I was in birthdayparty for a friend turning 40 years.

I hope you all had a great celebration yesterday. My family and I were visiting some friends and we didn't go to bed till 3.30 am this morning so I really am a bit tired today. I listened to the New Year's concert from Wien on the TV and it was great this year too.

Hope you all are having a great day, and thank you for visiting my blog!!

Hugs, Kristin :)
