a project I created using the following images...

#204 Brrr-thday Chef 


Don't forget, one lucky person leaving a comment on my blog
will have the opportunity to win Wisdom Age Birthday for free!!!

Check out what I made:

I have coloured with ProMarkers and used pattern paper from EP.
I always find it a little bit hard to make birthday cards for the men in my life, but this one worked out very well, don´t you agree? 
I used some corrugated paper to add to the masculine design and decided to use stars and some yellow rhinestones to embellish with. And don´t worry the naughty rhinestone that tried to leave my project has been caught and glued down to it´s rightful spot, lol... 

Next stop on our birthday train is Pippa's blog. Click HERE to head on over!

If you miss any of the stops along the way, here is the complete list. You are definitely going to want to check out what my fellow team members have in store for you:

Meet the Krew over at Clubb KennyK

Hello my sweeties,

We are starting up the new craft year with an 
"re-introduction" over at 

I altered my calendar in which I plan all my crafty projects for different design teams, keep a track on challenges I play along with and some other bits and bobs....

I have used a digi image from

KennyK Stamps
| Clear and Digi Stamps for Card Making, Scrapbooking & Paper Crafts

I have used Promarkers to colour with and a 
white gel pen to make pattern on her top.

I used a few different papers, stickers and clear stamps. I also fussy cut the clock and then added a black line around it to make it stick out a bit against all the other patterns. Most of the products are from Simple Stories. It feels so good since I got to use lots of small pieces of papers and stickers from my scraps. This is something I should really do more often... 

I hope you like it and please visit Clubb KennyK to see all the other NEW projects and get to know the krew!

DT project for CRAFTY CATZ

Hello sweeties,

this is my first week back to work after the Christmas Holiday
and I tell you I can feel it, think I never fallen asleep so early

Today we kick of with a new challenge over at 

this week sponsor is the fantastic 

This week´s theme is

Anything Goes with a twist of butterflies

I have used one of the images so kindly given to us to create with.

I wanted to use some earth colours like beige, brown and greens to go with butterflies being a part of nature. The photo came up very dark for some reason. The green at the bottom is dark green but not that dark... hmmm so you just have to imagine it a bit lighter.

I have used Promarkers to colour with. I tried a new skin combo after taking my first class at Kit and Clowder. I think I like it - got a bit darker and more of a tan look then I normally do.

Please join us over at Crafty Catz! My team mates has created some wonderful butterfly projects for you to find inspiration in.

Mid-way DT project for Scribbles Design

First post for 2017!
I wonder how many projects I´ll manage to create this year?

Today I´ll continue to New Year Celebration with a card
I made for the mid-way post over at Scribbles Design.

This month´s theme is:
Ring out the old, ring in the new

“Ring out the old, ring in the new,

Ring, happy bells, across the snow:

The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.”

There are several key words in this poem that can help provide a starting point for your creation: ring, old, new, happy, bells, snow, year, false, true. How you interpret them is up to you. For example, you might choose to use something old or something new in your project; or be literal and include bells or snow; maybe you'll focus on the word happy and take your creation in that direction; or maybe you will design a card that reflects something new like new year's or a new baby, a new home, etc. We look forward to seeing your creative take on this particular theme. Just be sure to let us know the key words you went with from the poem and how it links to the theme. It is time to bid adieu to 2016 and welcome the possibilities in store for 2017!

I have used one of Sandy´s new images called # 8109 Tower Clock 
(I love this new image. Great for any celebration, time related or 
travelling themed projects)

and this month´s freebie called #F 54 Champagne Glasses

I have coloured with ProMarkers. I added some stickles for bubbles in the champagne glasses and also used some gold folie paper for some bling.

I would like to enter this card into following challenges:

Glitter ´N´sparkle #220 - New beginning (7/1)
Pile it on #123 - Celebration (7/1)
Crafty Friends #48 - AG (12/1)
