My dad asked me if I could make a card for his friend who had his birthday last weekend. I was happy to make that card, and I used some of my favourite colours - brown and turquoise. Yum!
On the inside of the card was a pocket for dad to stick a gift card - he was very specific with the measurements so that the gift card would fit perfectly. ;) I think he was quite pleased with how it turned out, because I was paid about the double I usually charge for people who asks me to make cards on commission. ;) Or maybe it's just because he's my dad...
I'm planning to use this little book to write down funny things that Kajsa say or do, to have it as a reminder, somewhere to read and have a smile every now and then. The little ones grow so fast and before you know it, they graduate, start to work and move out... ;)
There is a full list of materials used in Pyssloteket's blog, so if you're curious of what I've used, head on over there!
A lot of distressing - that's what this week's challenge is all about. Not so hard for me - I LOVE distressing, and I almost always use the technique on my cards and layouts. What about you? Is it a challenge or is it "normal behaviour"? ;)
This layout was inspired by an advert - it's one of the challenges for the crop at Magdas:
I've used lots and lots of mist - two shades of pink and two shades of brown. As I didn't have all the letters I needed for the title, I used a couple of numbers instead - I'm sure you can see which ones. ;)
The crop goes continues throughout May, so there's plenty of time to join! :D
This month's Christmas challenge is TAGS over at Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge. It can be a gift tag or a tag used as an embellishment on a card or whatever you can come up with, as long as it has a tag in/on it somehow.
My creation for this challenge is a tag with a greeting I think is very important for Christmas, especially since I call myself the Grinch! ;) Everyone is usually so stressed about everything that needs to be done - but I think it's better to enjoy time with your loved ones, rather than having tons of homemade food on the table and a pile of Christmas gifts that go up to the ceiling.
What can you come up with? I'd love to see your tag creations! This month's prize is 4 Tickled Pink rubber stamps of your choice!!! :D
