I have used Linda's sketch for JCBC #56.

I completely forgot to post this card.

Thanks for looking.

Boy's card

The front. The dog and the boy are put on 3D-foam to give the card more dimension.

The tag. The giraffe was given to me by a good blogging friend.

The back. I made it really simple.

Another quick card. Sometimes I feel that I only have a couple of hours to prepare a card after my son come home with a birthdaypartyinvitation. I wish more people could hand out their invitations earlier!!

Luckily I had the images already coloured in, and I decided to make a criss-cross card since I know they are easy to make but they look really cool and advanced.

With this card I will join ABC challenge's latest challenge as their theme is "O is for One paper". I can hear you say "But I can see two papers" and then I can tell you that the light green paper is the back of the dark bluegreenish paper. So I've only used one paper!! *hehehe*

Well, I hope you will have a great day. It's snowing where I am, and I'm going to the dentist soon :)
Thanks for looking.

Hugs, Kristin :)

Just Christmas and Birthdaycards #56

Yesterday was time for another sketch over on Just Christmas and Birthdaycards. Linda has made a great sketch for us to play with. I decided to make another birthdaycard for a male. I am always short of cards for males, both boys and men. I realized that I have lots of cards for females, but not a single card for a male. So here I go.

(I'm of course very sorry for posting my card late.)

Here is Linda's fantastic sketch. Please join us with a birthdaycard or a christmascard, you have time until the 28th February.

If you still wonder why you should join us I can tell you that you can win a great prize;
You have the chance of winning one of the fabulous new downloads from Tracy at the Creative Cottage Designs. The papers are a collection on pink and black accompanied with printable flowers, shoes and handbags.

(Linda will offer a different prize to the winner if the winner isn't able to use the downloads.)

Now, please go and make a card for our challenge. We would love to see you join our challenge this week.

I want to join A Spoon Full of Sugar's latest challenge which is Spring Time. I think the colours I've used on my card is kind of springish, and the leaves I've stamped all over the card makes it a bit springish as well.

Have a great day, and thanks for looking.

Hugs, Kristin :)

Birthdaycard for a friend

The front looks like this when it's closed.

Then you untie the ribbon and open up to reveal the number 40 and her name and a small tag.
The letters and numbers are made by painting some light cardstock with gold acrylic paint and then stamping a background text on top.

The little tag.

You can open the card up some more, and the gift certificate is revealed in a pocket, and of course space to write a personal message.

This is the back, with my personal stamp.

I made this card for a friend of mine who celebrated her 40th birthday last week-end. We gave her a gift certificate to use on the nearest malls to buy herself a coffee machine.

There's not much action on my blog for the time being. I'm just busy doing other things than cardmaking.
Still I am checking in on some blogs every now and then, and I try to leave a message when I visit you.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I do appreciate it even though I'm not here very often.
Have a great day!!

Hugs, Kristin :)

Just Christmas and Birthdaycards #55

Finally I'm on time publishing my JCBC-card this time!! I've had tons of things to do this January, and I've been hopeless at sitting down in between to make my card for the JCBC challenges. But this time I was good and sat down Thursday evening and made a whole card almost in one go. I had decided to make a simple card so I could finish it the same night. And I did it. I've even sent the card in time to the birthdayperson. Yay!!

I really adore this relaxed little fellow. I wish I could have time to lay down in my bathtub and forget about the rest of the world for some hours. :)

The text on the inside says: "Birthdays are to be enjoyed. Have a great time!"

I tried to make some swirls on the back but I should really have let it be, they just look silly.

Today is the start of week 5 and the month of February. I wonder where the four first weeks disappeared!! What happened to January??? Hmmmm. I didn't make any Christmascards or hardly any cards at all.

Hopefully February will be a tad more relaxed but this week doesn't give me much hope. Every single day is full already. I actually had a hope to go to a crop at a friend's house on Friday, but I will have to go to a funeral instead. Well, one of these days I have to make a birthdaycard since a friend of mine is turning 40 and I'm going to her party on Saturday.
