From the past....

I found these cuties in a drawer when I was helping my parents move houses. I used to colour them with my father when I was a child. I now copied them onto waterolourpaper and used distress ink to colour them. I think they look superute on these christmas cards. I used some stickles on the hat to add some glitter. The sentiments says merry christmas and happy new year, and christmas hugs in swedish :-)

I,m entering the cards in the "Anything goes" challenges at:

The first ones

I have finally started with my Christmas cards. It was really about time if I want to make enought to both sell and to send myself.
This is two cards where I used embossing on the trees and then distress ink around it. I really like this tree-stamp, it's so pretty. 
The sentiments say merry Christmas and Christmas greetings in swedish.

It's not a card

My parents are the best. They are always there for me, giving advice, support and love. I wanted to send them a card telling them how much I love them.
The sentiment says " This is not a card. It's a hug with a fold in the middle."

I´m entering this card in the following challenges:

New home

I was invited to a friend today who recently moved into a new home with her family. I quickly put this card together for her. The sentiment says " congratulations to the new home". One of the family-members is a black cat :-)

Families we choose

I have a very small family due to both my parents being an only child. So if you don´t have any cousins you go and get yourself some :-) Annika is the daughter of my mothers best friend and we have always called eachother pretend-cousins. Tomorrow she´s turning 40 years old and a wanted to make her a beutiful card. I made a tri-shutter card. It´s the second time a do this folding and I think it turned out alright. Using patterned paper is a challenge for me and I have decided to force myself to use it and to learn more how to in a clean and simple style. Taking photos of this card was also a challenge, so sorry for the poor photos.
I hope she likes her card.

If you need a hug

I just had to make another card with my new stamps. I have really fallen inlove with them.... A friend called and she is going through some hard time right now. I think this sentiment is well needed now.

Mama Elephant

They are finally here! The stamps from Mama Elephant that I have been longing for for so long. I was going to order them from USA when they suddenly took away the free shipping and the order was canceled :-( But then I find out I could order them from one shop here in sweden I did a little happydance and ordered them right away! I love them ❤️ Here is my first card with the new stampset.
