Happy Birthday

A friend of mine turned 60 last week. She spent her birthday in New York visiting Jazz clubs. There sure are worse ways to celebrate… :) Here is the card I made her.

Grattis I 3

The flowers (Posy patch flowers PreCut Set) from Heartfelt Creations) are masked and colored with copics. Need to practice more on that coloring technique. But I think they turned out ok, and I’m really happy about this card.

I’m playing along with CAS(E) this Sketch #96.

I have a second card to share, a Halloween card. They are so much fun to make but we don’t celebrate Halloween. But after seeing Audrey’s Haunted House Tour, I sure wish we did!

This week’s colors over at Poppy sketches called for something spooky, so I pulled out an old favorite from The Rubber Café.

More masking on this one.

The rain is pouring. It won’t stop until late afternoon. I’m so happy we are playing golf today… NOT! :)

Have a lovely Sunday and thanks for stopping by!



Birthday card

My ex mother in law turned 82 the other day and I decided to make her a card. Spring flowers and butterflies might not be the most obvious theme for a fall birthday card – but hey, they are pretty, right! Being born late September I know everything about no strawberry cake and tulips for my birthday. :) I say no more. :)

Ett stort 1

I really like how this card turned out. Simple but the papers are absolutely wonderful. Everything is from Reprint, and this card with product information is up on the Reprint Blog today.

Ett stort 2

I used last week’s sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches, really liked that one. Too late to play, though.

I’m going to Princeton in November. Sooo looking forward to go the the US again! Never traveled beyond the city lines of New York last time, this time it’s New Jersey. It will take me some time to cover the continent… Anyway, any scrappy shopping possibilities in the Princeton area??? Give me a shout out if you have any tips!

Thank you for stopping by!!!



Miss You a Latte

Hello! Hope you all have had a great weekend. I took some time and made a couple of cards but spent even more time browsing the web and lost myself in all the amazing inspiration out there. It’s been a good day! :)

I bought a few MFT sets a while back and now I finally inked one of them up.

Miss you a latte

I’m playing with My Favorite Things Get Sketchy Challenge this week.


Now it’s time for an episode of Game of Thrones with my boy. Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Monday!

I have a quick card to share today. I am working from home and treated myself with an hour lunch break spent by my craft table. I love my work! :)

It’s another Christmas card, I’m playing along with Jingle Belles again this week.


The challenge prompt is We Three Kings – to use at least three patterned papers. I used some fab Christmas Song papers from Riddersholm Design. The stamps and die are from Heartfelt Creations.

I used this week’s sketch from Mojo Monday. Love it! :)

And I’m entering it in Simon Says Wednesday Challenge – anything goes.

Back to work for another hour or so. Have a great new week!




Happy Wednesday! I’m up on the Reprint blog today with a card made of a paper I totally adore. Love, love, love the soft text pattern and the rose buds along the edges. I knew I’d use it at once I saw retrosketches #133.

Together 2

The sentiment and butterflies are embossed with copper. Kept the design clean to let the paper and embossed stamps shine.

Together 4

Here is the fab sketch:

I have a second card to share. I’ve been playing with my Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps. It was a long time ago and I’ve missed them. I teamed up a few of my favorite sets and had some fun.

Hello 1

I used this great sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches:

I’m also entering the card in Creatalicious Challenge – flowers. I meant to use a lot more flowers, but the clean gene hit me. On the other side, the one flower is the center. :)

Thank you for stopping by! Have a fab day!



Happy Holidays

Hello everyone! Happy Friday!

I’ve started on my Christmas cards. Love making them, they are my favorite themed card. It was pure joy to bring out the holiday stash. I found this beautiful MME paper which I’ve hoarded for I don’t know how long.Three years or. Time to use it! :)

Happy Holidays 2

I’ve used Amy’s fab sketch from Jingle Belles.

It’s a great one – perfect for clean and simple and quick cards (this one took like 15 minutes). Most of the card is done once the paper is glued down to the card base. I added a stamp and some lace and twine. Done.

Happy Holidays 3

My second card is this week’s Reprint project. I used the cutest little bear stamp and Reprint Basic Collection Pastel 6x6.

 Björnen sover 1

A close up. :) I stamped the bear twice, colored it with distress ink and layered them to get some action.

Have a fab day!



To a beautiful you

Happy Thursday everyone! The week is halfway done and it feels good. Busy week for sure! But since my mojo is back, I’ve been sure to save up some time to make a few cards. Here is one of them. I had totally fun bringing out my mists and stencils. :)

To a beautiful you 1

The medallion is a clear stamp and one of the first I ever bought 6 or 7 years ago. It is still a favorite and I’ve used it over and over again. The sentiment is from Heartfelt Creations. Totally love it!

I’m playing with Poppy Sketch #13. Great colors, great sketch! Have to play!

To a beautiful you 3

And now I have to work!

Have a great day!



Best mom in the world

My mother is the best and she’s having a difficult time. Thought I’d send her some love.

Världens bästa mamma

I’m a bit rusty and my try at a shabby chick look is not the best ever. I think (hope) she likes it anyway. I pulled out some old favorites – papers, flower stamps and flower dies from Heartfelt creations and some sadly neglected sets from PTI.

I used sketch #92 from CAS(E) this sketch. Not much of a CAS card, but the sketch was great. And I’m not playing anyway. :)

Today is election day here in Sweden. I’ve always found this day special, it’s a celebration of our democracy. I hope the result will prove that openness and tolerance still rules and that we do not want any of the small minded intolerance of the SD!

Have a beautiful day!


Thank you!

Mojo hit me yesterday. Wasn’t sure it would ever return so I’m really happy. And now I’ve made three cards. I doubled this year’s card production in two hours… Hope it will stay! First card is for my mother’s neighbors. They are the most amazing people ever and I will never be able to thank them enough for all the support and love they spread.

Thank you 1

I’ve used the oh so wonderful Delicate Asters PreCut Set with coordinated dies from Heartfelt Creations. Perfect flower this time of year.

Thank you 2

I used sketch #235 from Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.

Next card is made for Reprint. I’ve been an absent DT the past months but I intend to change that now. Info about the products can be found on the Reprint blog.

Med en enkel tulipan 1

I’ll save the third one for another day. :)

Thanks for stopping by!



Reprint projects

Helloooo! I have two projects to share today. The card is last week’s Reprint project, using last week’s Seize the sketch.  Too late to play, but the sketch was a good one!

Angels 1

I simply adore this stamp with the lovely angels. I double stamped them and added some color to their cheeks and some stickles to their wings and the stars. They sparkle.

Birthday Card


Stort grattis 2

Äntligen vår! Och vår betyder nystart, så också för mig med nytt liv med nya mål och nya uppdrag. :) Det här är mitt första projekt som Design Team-medlem hos Reprint Hobby. Yay!

Spring is here and it’s time for a fresh start! New life, new goals, new assignments!  :) This is my first card as a Design Team member of Reprint Hobby, a Swedish manufacturer and wholesaler.

Stort grattis 1

Det är ett födelsedagskort till en arbetskamrat. Den unge spolingen fyller 40 minsann.

This is a birthday card for a co worker. The young man turns 40 next week and he needs to be reminded of the fact he is finally one of us grown ups. :)

Stort grattis 3

Jag ville ha ett “manligt” kort med stänk av rosa och glitter. Vem älskar inte rosa och glitter??? Lite detaljer stämplade med Victorian velvet, stickles och glossy accent fick stå för den biten.

I wanted to make a male card with hints of pink and bling. (Everybody deserves some pink and some bling!!!) I added some stamped details in pink, some stickles and glossy accent.
