We stand together!

It is with a heavy heart i do this post. Due to the happenings in Oslo a few days ago, i wish to convey my condolances to all that suffered such great loss from the violent acts in Oslo and at Utøya on friday. It is so difficult to understand what kind of evil it takes to be able to do such violence. My heart goes out to all of those that in some way has been involved either themselves or that knows someone involved. It is so hard to express how i feel but i`m sure that all of us feel the same way.

A campaign is started here to show our support and respect to the victims and their next of kin. Every blogger that wants to show their support can dedicate a post to this campaign and publish the image below. Do you want to make a difference?

I am usually not a big fan of our Prime minister but i am truly impressed and proud of how he has handeled this case. The speech he held in church yesterday was so emotional and full of love for his people, and it was really hard to watch without crying.

- So to all of you somehow are in my heart and thoughts. Stay strong and together!

Sparkle and shine at WhoopsiDaisy

Hey Peeps!

I really got stuck when i was going to make a card for todays challenge over at WhoopsiDaisy. I really don`t know what i was thinking when i chose images for the challenge, lol. I was caught up in the love for the new sheet Linnie posted in her shop and i forgot what the challenge was all about, lol. I just had to have this sheet!!!! So now i had to make a sparkle and shine card, lol. Not easy to do with images that are supposed to be used as accents, hahaha. So i just had to look through my collection of Linnie Images and i found this sweet little fairy girl on sheet #180. And i thought she might be perfect to add to my creation

I actually started with an ordinary 6x6" card but it didn`t work at all, so i had to try a stepcard instead. I moved the embellies back and forth several times and decided it looked really weired. I had to draw up the grass in front by hand and coloured it and then cut it out. I also had some other images i cut up and used some bits and parts here and there to make a scene. I still think it looks a bit weired but i don`t have any more time to do it all over again so this just have to do. Luckely you don`t see all the mistakes that i see, hahahaha.

This little fairy girl is just the most adorable ever. And i coloured her up with these colours:
Primrose, Buttercup, Pastel yellow

Vanilla, Saffron, Oatmeal, Tan

Lipstick red, Gold, Sunflower, Yellow. Satin, Putty, Tan, Cinnamon.

Forrest green, Bright green, Lime green, Lime Zest

Walnut, Terracotta, Pumpkin

For all the grass and trees i mixed with these colours:
Pine, forrest green, Bright green, Lime green, Lime zest.

For the beautiful fence i used:
Walnut, Terracotta, Spice, Honeycomb.

The butterfly i created myself. I just love these butterflies. They are so easy to make. A couple of minutes and then they are finished.

Behind the flowers you can see one of my new dies. It is a Marianne die. And i think it looks really beautiful. I am just loving my new Big Shot, lol. My hubby is going to have a fit when he hears how much i have to spend on dies, lol.

Here is a closeup of my homemade grass, lol. I also put in some tiny flowers. I think i like it, lol. Hope you like my creation. Thanks for looking.

These are the challenges i`m entering:
