The image i have used for my card is called Casting down imaginations and is going to be released on dec 1st. in the Crafts and Me store. There are a few more images going to be released and they are gorgeous every one of usual. You are really in for a treat, so stay tuned.

This wooden flourish is an old one from Kaiserkraft. I have inked it and painted it with crackle paint (Picket Fence) The crackle paint actually blended with the ink, so it looks kinda skin coloured.

Autumn by Sara Burrier

Hi sweet peeps!

I was going to show you one of the new releases that are due on dec 1st but my printer is out of ink, so i had to use one of the ones i allready had printed out. I have used one of the previous releases by Sara Burrier called Autumn. Available here. But since we are in the middle of the Christmas preparations i have made a Christmas-card. So i coloured this gorgeous image in Christmas-colours instead.

The chipboard snowflake is a Dusty Attic chippie which i`ve painted with gesso and blinged up a bit with Stickles Icicles, available here.

Well that`s all from me this time. Later i`m off to celebrate my best friend`s 40th birthday, and i expect high partyfactor, lol. Hope you`ll have a great weekend. Don`t forget to come and play with us at the challenge blog. There is still time.

To celebrate Christmas we're having a blog-hop and hope you will join in on the fun! There's candy to be won on each and every blog. Linnie has been so generous to give us a sheet of digi images to offer you as a candy. I have decided to add a bit to that candy from my personal stash. What it is, will be a surprise, lol. Just leave  a comment and do the linky dance with mr linky at the bottom, and i`ll draw a winner for my candy when the hop is finished. We've also all got a letter which is a tricky (NOT!) seasonal phrase. .

If you came here from the super fun and oh so adorable Nataliya then you are on the right track. If not, hop over to Linnie where the fun starts.

The Divas playing are;

Linnie Ms WhoopsiDaisy herself.

Here is finally my card for the hop. I`m so sorry i didn`t manage to finish it in time for the bloghop to start. I was up north visiting my parents and didn`t arrive home late last night untill 0200 after driving for 13 hours straight. But here it is.

Here is my card for you. The image i have used is one of 4 cuties on sheet #151. This is the sheet the winner of my candy will receive.

It was a bit funny with this image. My printer off course had to run empty off printer fluid so the print didn`t get so black in the edges as it use to. But that gave me a perfect opportunity to try the no lines technique. Of course the lines are not completely away, lol. But i kinda like the result. Hope you like it too.

So off you go to our one and only and amazing Karen C, to pick up her letter and to drewl upon the gorgeous creation she has in store for you.

Sorry for beeing a bit late posting this. Time really seem to run away from me lately. But here it is anyway.

At WhoopsiDaisy we are having a new challenge. We want to see winter colours. This can be the colours of winter or something  you associate with winter.

For my card today i have tried a new folding technique. Over at StampARTic, Marianne has posted the tutorial for this gorgeous Napkin folded card. It is written in english too so you don`t need translation for it either.

The DP is all from the Song Bird collection from Pion Design. And this sweet image is available in the WhoopsiDaisy digi shop. This is one of four sweet images on sheet #152. Both types of edge punches are from Martha Stewart.

These are the colours i have used:

Vanilla. Saffron, Oatmeal, Tan

Cocoa, Pastel Yellow, Buttercup

Arctic blue, French Navy, Ice grey #1

Other colours:
Sunkissed pink, Berry red, Holly, Lush green, Black, Cool grey #4 and 5

I would really like to see some more folding techniques out there, so if you have a fun technique to show me, please give me a nudge and i will come visit your blog. Maybe i will post a link to the tutorial in my blog too, lol. I do give credit to the designer also.

Backside: it`s your time to create something winterly, lol. Really looking forward to see what you come up with. So hop on over to the WhoopsiDaisy Challenge an join us.
