Snögubbar i massor / Lot's of snowmen

A little criss-cross card for Inga, who was kind
enough to come all the way here and give our
plants water while we were away for a week.
The big snowman on the left handside is 
acually a ribbon attached to a white paper
and then cut out. At the bottom there is another
 great ribbon - both are from Crafty Ribbons.

And when you remove the little clip you can take 
out the card and see the message at the back! And
even more snowmen...

I'd like to participate in these two challenges:

Di's Digi Designs

Day 22 at Crafty Ribbons Christmas Advent Event and
a company called Di's Digi Designs presents itself:
I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with likeminded people.
I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself.
This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue!

I made an inspirationcard but used a Tim Holtz embossing
folder, some snowflakes and both button and purple lace
are from Crafty Ribbons.
Please pop over and have a look at all the other
beautiful projects created for your inspiration

Minialbum till Nel

Crafty Ribbons December Event fortsätter;
dagens företag som presenteras är detta:

J & C Creations Online Craft Shop

J & C Creations started in 2004 by mother and daughter Denise and 
Jenny Packham making handmade greetings cards to raise funds for an
 expedition trip Jenny was embarking on to Mongolia. From there we began 
exhibiting at local school fêtes and garden shows where our 
range of products grew to include gifts. As we started attending more 
shows weincreased our product range to include card making supplies;
J & C Creations was born. 
In 2005 we took the plunge and exhibited at our first large hobby craft 
show at Brighton. What a big learning curve that was!!!
 J & C Creations began to grow whilst still trying to juggle a full 
time job and full time education between us.
2005 also saw the launch of our website which like 
J & C Creations has continued to grow over the years.

Jag har gjort ett minialbum med tags till Nel, mammas
trevliga svägerska i Holland, om 10 saker hon gillar mest
med Sverige. Fakta överensstämmer inte nödvändigvis med
verkligheten, men det är väl det som kallas för konstnärlig
frihet, eller hur?

Tyvärr limmade jag ihop mitt album utan tagsen istoppade.
Det var inte bra. De tjocka tagsen med foton på båda sidor gör 
nämligen att det lilla albumet blir så tjockt att det går upp i 
limningen om man stänger det... Sorry men sån't är livet - det var 
första gången jag testade att göra denna sorts minialbum. 

Nästa vecka kommer Nel att få sitt lilla album; jag åker till Holland
och hoppas innerligt att jag kan få lite vila och njuta av trevligt
sällskap. Sist jag åkte ner fick jag efter två dagar reda på att min
pappa hade avlidit på sjukhus i Sverige och spenderade resten av
min vistelse med att oroa mig över allt jag skulle åka hem och ta
hand om efter hans bortgång. 

Ha det så bra alla som läser detta, vilket inte är så många vad jag
förstår av sidvisningarna... Lämna gärna en kommentar om du vill.

Scrap Our Stash - circle around

Hi! I'm glad you found your way to my blog! Since 
my father passed away in the summer and I had to
take care of a lot of things I haven't done any posts
at Scrap Our Stash - but now I'm back.

This time the theme is "circle around" and I have
played with doilies and spraypaints called Dylusions.
Then I cut a few pictures and placed them in the blank
spaces. The title refers to the work of art of a castle-
gardener, who prepared the very special exhibition at
Drottningholm Castle this summer. 

Decorations: Journaling Sprouts from Jillibean Soup, 
buttons, brads, letters from American Crafts and stickles.

Beklagar sorgen

Får kort med texten "beklagar sorgen" se ut hur
som helst? Får de se glada ut och ha en blomma
eller måste de vara sorgsna med svart och mörka
toner? Här är mitt:

Stämpeln med blomman kommer ifrån A Day for Daisies.
Den gröna spetsen kommer från Crafty Ribbons.

Idag är det Nobeldagen! Glöm inte att se
på TV och beundra det vackra Stadshuset
i kväll!!
