Beautiful Sea

We are having a calm day at our house. Hubby is taking care of trees in our garden and I have been ironing. I truly hate that, and usually let hubby do it. But the choice of taking down trees and ironing was pretty easy. I’ve set it up right outside my scrap room and make sure to take a break every now and then (more every now than then…). Which mean I’ve managed to make one layout and one card, but am still not finished with the ironing business… Oh well.

Vårt vackra havI love this photo from a very nice day trip me and son did last spring. I’ve already scrapped several photos so I didn’t feel the urge to journal and decided to keep the page clean with focus on the photo. I used this week’s Sketchy Thursday sketch.

While the Sketchy Thursday map was a fun and easy one to follow, the quilt pattern over at 365 cards was NOT (well it was FUN, just not EASY!). But when I saw it I simply had to try, just to figure out if it was possible or not… Well… I don’t know… Dear son said (very courteous) that it’s not the best card I’ve done… Since I put down quite some work on it and used my favorite papers, I thought I’d share it anyway. Be nice!


Papers: Bazzill, Basic Grey
Stamps: The Rubber CaféLarge Highwing Butterfly
Ink: Versa Mark, Distress Ink
Decos etc: Flower – Kort og Godt, EK success punch, clear embossing powder from Ranger.

I’d better take another round with that iron. Have a lovely day!

No, no, no! You'd better stay in your scrap room. Don't iron, please!
The layout is pure perfection! And it is very inspiring and challenging to try and play with that sketch....
I LOVE IT! every single part of it. So beautiful! (okay, I repeat myself, but how else can I express my feelings?!)

And the card is a brilliant take on this chellenge (you just couldn't let it go... LOL)

You rocked that quilt challenge! Wow! I tried and tried to get it to come out, and finally gave up and "tweeked" it a bit. LOL Pam will get back at me at some later date...I am sure she won't let me get away with this sort of behavior! hee hee
