The winner will get 1 (non-coloured) digi.  


I've used the image Bithday Elly, a really cute elephant coming towards us with a birthdaycake.
I've colored it with Prisma color pencils.



I've used only one pattern paper for this card. It's a lovely blue paper from Scrapberry with some flowers on the blue background on one side and a rose pattern in blue on white on the other side.


I cut of the flowers to make a panel, and since I wanted it to stand out I matted it with cardstock.
I cut a patterned straw in two and used as embellishment together with a little flower I put together from my flowercollection.

Morro Bay

I've made a 2-page layout with photos from our vacation in California last November. Here we visited Morro Bay at the coast.
It was windy, but good weather this day.
We walked by the beach and as we came down we saw a lady standing there painting.



I've used cardstock with bling, so it shines very nice.

The pattern papers on top are torn and the other are fussy cut.


The pattern papers are from 49 & Market.


I've scatterned some halfpearls around the pages.



I participate in the following challenges:

ARTastic Challenge Blog - January 2018 - Inspiration photo and use vacation photos

Scrappiness: Utfordring 1 - 2018 - Noe gammelt og noe nytt
 - har brukt mitt eldste store alfabet, Finale, til overskriften, mens kartong, mønsterark og pynt er nyinnkjøpt

I've used the January double page sketch at Stick it Down:

    I submit this at Stick it Down just for fun, since I just stepped down from the DT.

The prize for winner:  $12 A Day for Daisies gift certificate.


I have used the digistamp A Special Gift for my card.
I colored it with distress ink using a waterbrush.

On the background paper I used distress ink over a stencil.

Here are some closeups on that and the flowers I used as embellishments.


The flowers were made using a die from Spellbinder, distressink, halfperl and combining that with some holly leafs from a Martha Stuart punch.

Oceanside Pier

My first layout in 2018 was made yesterday and is a layout with photos taken on the pier in Oceanside, CA, in November 2016.

I've used papers from 45 & Market, which I got only a few days ago and a beautiful blue cardstock from Core'dinations.


I found some Prima chipboards in my stash and thought this one would be fine to put the title on.


I also found some cheeseloth which I had already colored and I loved how it looked with these photos.


The layout is based on the January 1st sketch from Let's Get Sketchy.


I rotated it 90 degrees to the left to fit my photos.

Feeling Sketchy sketch #184

Happy New Year!

What's better to start a new year with than a new card sketch at Feeling Sketchy?

I have made a Christmas card using our first sketch for 2018.


Here is the sketch, made by Bev Code

The prize for winner:  $12 A Day for Daisies gift certificate.


I have used the digistamp Gentle Baby for my card. 

I colored it with distress inks, using a water brush. Since a printed the stamp on a inkjet printer I had to be very careful with the lines and not use too much water.


Here is another closeup on the embellishments. I have used two different dies and a punch to get this flowercluster.



I used a textstamp saying "A child is born in Betlehem".

2 tett i tett

2 close to each other.


I took this photo when we visited Sequoia National Park in November this year. The two big sequoia trees leaned against each other as they raged to the sky.


These threes are so big and so old, many of them are more than 1000 years old. It is great to see, and we people are so small compared with them.

My layout is based on Desember 1. sketch from Lets Get Sketchy:


I rotated it 90 degrees to the left to fit my photo.
