Hello! How You Doin’?


Over a month since my last post… well, life has been rough. What can I say… Since I blogged last, I’ve separated from my husband and moved to a new home. It’s been difficult and busy, but now things are falling into place. I love my apartment and I really find the new life I’ve started quite good. :) And this weekend I managed to start my internet and got my scrap space in place and managed to make not one but TWO cards! Yay!

Here is one of them:

how you doin 2

It’s a card I made to a long lost friend. We were class mates for 12 years! and good friends, but lost touch when we both moved to different regions of Sweden. She sent me a sympathy card when my dad died and I wanted to let her know how much I appreciated that.

I used some new stamps, well I bought them in New York in July, but when I got home, my dad was really ill and everything started, so I haven’t inked them up until now. The brush image in the background is from My Favorite Things and the Hello is from Mama Elephant and I totally love them both. The paper is American Crafts.

I used this fabbie sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.

And I was super inspired by THIS card by amazing Jennifer Timko.

Thank you for stopping by!

Tesa, tittar in här för första gången på länge och ser att det hänt massor av saker i ditt liv sen sist. Jag är så ledsen för din pappa, jag kan inte ens föreställa mig hur jobbigt det måste vara. Hoppas att du får lite medvind nu, det förtjänar du! Skickar massor av varma goa julkramar. Sköt om dig. <3
