A card and an ATC

Firstly I would like to wish everyone a very Happy New Year. Hope it will be filled with happiness and some wishes come true.
I have managed to make 1 card. It's my daughter's 4th birthday on the 19th January and I made her a sweet pinky card following the sketch at Mojo. I do love the sketches there - they are usually easy but so effective. I have used this super image by TGF - isn't she adorable????

Image: Marlene Monkey by TGF
Papers: Summertime Designs
Flower: Prima
Colouring: Water colours

Next I would like to show an ATC which I made for the Crazy Amigo challenge - snowman. I have used this super digital image by the talented Michelle Perkett - please visit her PCP group - she's such a lovely lady. I love this snowman - he really does make me smile.

Colouring: Water-colours and glitter glue

Thank you all for visiting me in 2009 and I hope we all rise to new challenges in 2010. Mette

ATC Swappers January 2010

Omg - finally managed to do some crafting!!!!

I hope you all had a magical christmas. Mine was lovely but in between dressing my daughter in all her new dressing up clothes (princesses are definately IN), mediating between my teenage sons, cooking, cleaning, visiting etc there hasn't been a lot of time for crafting. And I got a heat gun which I still haven't been able to try out lol.

I did manage to make these cute ATCs and I am definately early with them for a change. ATC Swappers January theme is tearing and I knew immediately what I wanted to do. I used up a lot of tiny scraps which we all have and tor them into strips, attached them to the ATC. I then added this super fish from High Hopes (I think his name is Herbert).


Stamp: Herbert by High Hopes

Paper: Stash

Colouring: Water-colours

Thank you all for looking and hope you have a lovely day, Mette

A few ATCs

Just a quick note from me today. As most of you I am busy getting ready for christmas but have manages to participate in a few challenges this week and you may also know that I absolutely love making ATCs. So without further addo.......

1. Think Monday, think ATC

This week's challenge was children's Books and I used to love Peter Pan. These days however, it seems Tinkerbell is the new star (my daughter loves princesses hehe). It almost seems as if "the boy who didn't wanna grow up" has been forgotten.

The theme is Christmas (how appropriate lol) and for me red is the ultimate christmas colour. And what better image than this charming Santa from Crafty Individuals.

Another christmas theme. I choose a simple christmas tree for this ATC. The paper is stained and the red berries have been coated with crackle.
Well, this is all from me at the moment. it has been snowing outside so my little princess will be so excited when she wakes up (she's nearly 4). My mum tells me they have had over 1/2 m snow in Denmark - I really wish I was heading home for christmas but as long as my kids are having the best time then I'll be happy.
Thank you for popping by and have a lovely day, Mette

A few cards

Sorry it has been a while since I last posted here but life has been a little hectic. Typical for this time of year really but as already stated my PC went down and thenn I have had a bad flu and not felt I wanted to do any crafting. On top of that I am (like so many of you) getting ready for christmas although I don't get stressed. If something is not done or bought it's not the end of the world lol.

The first card I wanna share is for 2 challenges. No. 1 Sketchycolors where the theme is a colour combo blue/green and no 2. mojo monday 117. I love their sketches and I had been asked to make a card for a man. Now he is into keeping fit and motorbikes but unfortunately I didn't have a suitable image so I found this little fellor. Cute, isn't he?? lol. He was sent to me by a friend in the states.

Sentiment: G-studio
Paper: stash
Colouring: watercolours

This next card is for Kort-o-mania challenge. Their theme was angels and we all love those. I didn't really want to use a stamp for this and in my stash I found this lovely angel printed onto vellum. Isn't she adorable. I found her at my local craft shop along with other little gems. I know it's a little difficult to see but I mounted her onto some silver card.

Image: from local craft shop
Paper: please don't ask lol
Flower: a kind gift from a lovely friend
Riboons and gems from stash
My last card is for the challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie. Their theme this week is "Sparkle, baby". I used this super image - and I adore these. She is coloured with watercolours. It is a little difficult to see again, but her skirt is covered in glitterglue and she has gold buttons. The super snowflakes and the ribbons were sent to me by friends.
Stamp: Kraftin' Kimmie "Clara" and sentiment by Elzybells
Papers: erm - do not remember
Ribbon and flakes from friends
Hopefully I will be back tomorrow with some ATCs which I have made for weekly challenges.
Thank you for popping by and I hope you have a lovely day, Mette

Just a quick note to let you know that I am still here.
What is your definition of torture??? Well, I would have to say


Never mind the spanish inquisition. They can tear out my nails 1 by 1, stretch my in different directions and deprive me of food but 1 whole week without my computer is sheer torture.
Luckily I got it back now so I will be back blogging again soon

In the meantime, stay happy, Mette

Sketchycolour challenge 1

There is a new challenge blog out in Bloggerland - Sketchy colors. It has been started by some very talented scandinavian ladies but don't worry - they write in english too. I believe it will be sketch and colours challenges - each alternate.
I thought I would like to play along and the first challenge is "Purple". I love that colour and since my son's girlfriend is 17 soon I though I would make her a little card using my new Drucilla stamp. Isn't she just FAB. I absolutely adore these stamps from Kraftin' Kimmie. I am pretty sure this card couldn't be any more purple even if I tried. I just hope the girlfriend likes it :).

Stamp: Drucilla by Kraftin' Kimmie
Papers: from my huge stash
Flowers: Prima
Colouring: Prisma Pencils

Quixotic challenge 4

Just a card for now but will come back later as I got 2 ATCs to post again.
This card is for the forth challenge over by Quixotic which was tearing. I love tearing paper - sometimes you need a straight line, other times I just like to see where the tear goes lol.
For this card I used bright colours - my favorite, I can't get enough of citrus colours and I used this super image by Diane Duda (love her). I haven't quit worked out why she's shaken the frog lol.

Stamp: Shaken not kissed by Diane Duda @ Sugar Nellie
DP: erm - can't remember
Flower: prima
Colouring: Prisma pencils

Weekly ATCs

It's time to post a few ATCs from the challenges last week. Been wondering whether to put my ATCs on a seperate blog but knowing me I will just get totally confused hehe.

The first is for Crazy Amigos where the theme is "Little girls". I have again used a background I made myself (not very visible). The image I got in my local craft shop and the stamps are by Crafty Individuals. Doesn't she look so pure and innocent?

This second ATC is for Art Pieces and they have the theme "Ladies and Gentlemen". Sorry the picture isn't very clear - sometimes my scanner plays up.
I have again used a collage image which I have framed with stamped paper. The stamp is CI-235 from Crafty Individuals. I have attached a ribbon and small heart charm.

Thank you for popping by and have a lovely day, Mette

Don't you just love Mojo sketches. They are such a joy to follow and I like them. This is the first Mojo sketch I have done in a long time but will be doing more especially atm to make christmas cards.

For this card I have used a sweet image by Bildmalarna - isn't she cute hugging the polar bear?

Stamp: Mimosa by Bildmalarna
Paper: a gift as is the ribbon
Colouring: Prisma pencils

Kortudfordring 5

As a danish girl stranded in the UK it's nice to be able to join in a scandinavian challenge and seeing all the great talents in my own country. Kortudfordring (Card challenge) has some fabulous DT members, forthnightly challenges and super prices. Their page is translated into english so everyone can join.

For this challenge they asked that you make your own background paper using any technique you like.

I have tried my hands at using acrylics (which I love) and for this paper I put several blobs of different colours onto the paper and loosely moved it about using a credit card then stamped onto this with a snowflake stamp I got from Crafty Individuals. I rather like it :).

Stamp: Snowflake angel by Elzybells.
The snowflakes are from a sweet lady in the states.
Colouring: Prisma pencils
Glitter glues.

Sugar Bowl No 24

Two posts in one day - swoon............and this time a card - double swoon. Well, I thought I would try my hands at the Sugar Bowl Challenge as I have just purchased this lovely image from Funkykits. Been wanting this for ages and now the poor thing is in a box with other sugar girlies hehe.
For this challenge you have to create a card following a lovely sketch by Marlene and I believe you have a chance of winning some new stamps.

Stamp: Bunny by Diane Duda (Funkykits)

Monthly ATC challenges

I have been very busy this month trying to make the ATCs for this month's groups. I do not make a lot of cards as I find I end up with space shortage and end up giving them to the local church to sell for funds. And I love swapping ATCs. It's so wonderful to see all the amazing talent that's all over the world.

This first one I wasn't really going to do. ATC swappers challenge for this month is "12 days of christmas" which meant we have to do 12 ATCs. But got a e-mail from Paul which was so nice that I hardly could refuse. So I set up a production line, gave my kids sweets, pop and a good movie, put on my glasses and created this..........

Stamp: Carol Singers by Elzybells Stamps
Colouring: water colours
Glitter glue

This ATC is for the Monthly ATC Swap. The theme for November is "Anything Goes" as long as it's cute. I love this little girl. She makes me smile :).
Stamp: Annie by Leanne Ellis (Sugar Nellie)
Sentiment: Hero Arts
DP: erm ............. dunno
Colouring: water colours
Last but not least is Addicted to ATC. Although a little late their theme is "Spooky". Alright, I know this image doesn't exactly frighten anyone but imagine IRL hordes of halloween kids all demanding sweets .......... now that is scary.

Stamp: Trick or treat by Elzybells
Paper: Paper Mill Shop
Colouring: Prisma pencils and Sansodor
Hope you all enjoyed popping by and have a super day, Mette

Thank God it's Friday No 112

Sorry I have not been blogging for a few days but things have been a little hectic hehe. Had the cast-iron wood/coal burner installed in the living room yesterday, just in time for winter. But would you believe I cannot get it going lol - getting more and more blond with old age. I'll be sitting here when it's freezing cold, clattering my "false" teeth (they are not hehe) and trying to light the silly fire.

Enough of my ramblings. I am for the first time joining
TGiF - this week's challenge is Femme Fatale (I wish). But I wanted to play along anyways.

I found this beautiful lady in a fashion magazine and though she look absolute gorgeous. The pink background is me again experimenting with colours (this time Acrylics - gonna get myself some Claudine Hellmuth for xmas I hope). I love the effect these paints give. Added a flower, button, a feather and word and voila .................... a very pink femme fatale.

Crazy Amigos

I just thought I would do another challenge while my princess was at Playgroup. She's a little delicate atm - she tripped yesterday and hurt her little finger quite badly. Went to the doctor who said that even if it was broken there's really nothing they can do. So she's a little tearful and needing a lot of mummy love. To cheer me up I placed an order with Crafty Individuals for 2 plates :). And the postman brought my Whee with drum from Whiff of Joy.
The challenge I did was Crazy Amigos who this week want to see paints. I love painting both large and small.

The backgroup for this ATC was an experiment I did using a gold leaf pen and then added very runny water-colours. I think it looks gorgeous. Only thing I added was this lovely mother/child picture from Crafty Individuals and a sentiment. To me it seems that my mum is made up of an array of beautiful colours and no matter which colour she is, she's always raidiant. 2 small flatback pearls are added. I hope you like it.

Thank you for popping by and have a lovely day, Mette

Think Monday - Think ATC

The moment I saw this weeks Tmta challenge "Black, White and Red" I immediately thought "99 Red Balloons" by Nena. I had to google it to find out when it was recorded ............... 1984!!! "Cough cough" I am getting old. I remember dancing to this in my mum's living room like it was yesterday hehe.

I dug out this old balloon image that's been in a box for ages but it's just perfect for this. Matted and layered it onto black and red paper. It's not very clear but I put a piece of red ribbon between the white and black layer. The ballloons are coloured with markers and 2 have had a nice coating of crackle accent.

Stamp: Party Balloons
Paper: from my scrap box

High Hopes No. 52

Omg!!!! Two posts in one day. Well, in between looking after my daughter, cooking, cleaning, washing, being a nurse maid, psychologist, home-work helper etc etc I manage to send 5 min here and there on my favorite hobby and eventually projects get finished.
This weeks challenge at High Hopes is a super sketch which was a delight to follow and I used this delightful dragon which I coloured with water-colours. It's for my daughter's little friend who is 4 soon.

Anyone for Anya

My niece has just past her final apprentice exams after 3 years of being taught the ropes as a hairdresser and beautician. And she passed with flying colours. I am so proud of her - too bad she lives in Denmark otherwise I could do with a little beautification lol.
I am sending her this sweet card which I made for the Anyone for Anya recipe challenge:- 3 papers, 2 buttons, 1 bow. My favorite colours are citrus colours as they remind me of hot summer days. Hope you like it.

Stamp: The Greeting Farm "Annika"
Papers: still can;t remember hehe

Mo's Challenge No. 5

Don't you just love Mo's images!! First time I saw one I thought "omg - must-have" and I did get. Not only is Mo a brilliant illustrator, she's also a kind and caring person. She gives freebies and is very involved in her online fan-club. If you have not visited her shop yet you better go to Mo's Shop right away. You may also like to join her fan-club over at PaperCraftPlanet to be inspired and have fun.

And it was only a matter of time before Mo had hear own challenge blog which this week would like to see 3 different glitter elements.

The image I have chosen is the funny "I dunno" featuring Bella and Bronte. I am sure most mums have seen that expression. I have coloured the image using water-colours. My 3 glitter elements (although difficult to spot) are the Designer Paper, glitter glue on the green tutu and a green green in the Prima flower. The sentiment "wat birfday kake" is handmade. Hope you like it.

Thank you for popping by and have a crafty day, Mette

Some ATCs

Been a few days since I last posted but I have not been lazy. Still got several little projects on my workdesk which needs to be finished off but thought I would just put a few images up. My list of "TO DO's is getting longer but my list of "DONE" isn't hehe.
I have been doing a few ATCs for a few challenges that I haven't done before so without further ado

This 1 is for Wednesday Stamper where the theme is "Asia". I think most of us like that theme. It reminds me of tranquility.
The stamp I used was free with a UK Stamp magazine. The colours are red, black and gold (doesn't show).
This ATC is for a scandinavian challenge Art Pieces. This week's challenge is "Hats". Not something I wear but this young lady is looking to buy 1.The backgroup paper I made myself using baby wipes and inks. The Stamp is a big Mona Lisa I got of ebay.

The last ATC is for 3 Muses. Their theme is What a Peachy Pair. I have a feeling the gentleman is thinking of the lady in the background.
Well, that's it for the moment but will be back soon with some more to show.
Thank you for dropping by and hope you have a lovely day, Mette

Quixotic No. 1 "Birthday"

There is a new challenge blog in Bloggerland. Elaine at Quixotic and her super DT have started a challenge blog and as it was Elaine's birthday on the 4th November the first theme was .................... you guessed it "Birthday".

My "dad" is 60 at the end of November and I wanted to make him a special card. He loves Country Music, Line dancing, playing the guitar and he and my mum visit Nashville when they can. I thought it would be super to join the first ever challenge with a card for my "dad".

This handsome cowboy doesn't look anything like my dad but he was the only image I had which fitted a little. He is from The Greeting Farm and I have coloured him with Prisma Pencils. The papers are from K & Co. and I made some myself too.
This is the inside of the card. For those of you who don't read danish it simply says:-
Grandad - happy 60th birthday.
I hope you like him. I had a great time making the card. Just wish I had a guitar to add.
Thank you for stopping by and hope you have a crafty day, Mette

Spread the love for Jaimie

I love to visit all the wonderful blogs out there in Bloggerland and I usually have a good laugh and share everyones creations and talent. But sometimes you come across a story which touches your heart and you simply cannot turn away.

And there is no way I could turn away from the terrible story of Jaimie Cates who lost her mother in a horrific, senseless act on October 4th. For more information please visit Katharina's blog. All the details are there including the Blog Hop Candy although I am certain everyone would join in even without the candy.

The address for sending your card is here

This is the card I made for Jaimie. I am not sure whether it's the best as I don't often make cards like this. Besides, I read that Jaimie is a little tomboy who loves skateboarding, biking etc. She even has a black belt in karate. She will need the angels to watch over her now and I will be sending her all my prayers .

Stamp: Diane Duda charity
Papers: found in stash box
Gems: Bunny Zoe's
Heart charm: A lovely RAK from Elaine Hughes
Hope you all have a crafty day and thank you for popping by, Mette

Tilda and frinds

OK!!! In between sneezes, coughs, hot lemon/honey teas, fever and still looking after 3 kids - yup, even helped out at my daughter's playgroup - washing, cleaning, cooking etc etc and I even managed to make 1 ATC!!! Man-flu???? Not in my house hehe.

This one is for the last ever Tilda and friend challenge "Autumn colours". It's a sad day but I do understand their reasoning for stopping. I have as usually coloured my image using water-colours (need to go back to prisma colours again).

Stamp: Bildmalarna Sitting Mimosa - The sentiment is from last year's Magnolia Fall Kit.
Flower: Woodware
DP: you know by now - my memory is failing :P
I will go to bed and nurse my flu. Was up all night cos someone was using sandpaper in my throat and I found it difficult to sleep. Tomorrow I am going to make a special card for a young lady in the US for whom my prayers go out to tonight.
Take care and stay safe, Mette

Crazy Amigos challenge "Men"

I am back with another post. Both the boys are off doing their weekend jobs so my little princess and I are having fun. The pumpkin is carved, the lollies and cupcakes ready and my daughter is dressed as a pumpkin. Let the monsters and witches come !!!!!!! I AM NOT SCARED

This handsome guy is from a collage sheet which I got a while back. I am slowly starting to do projects with NON-cuties (just for a little variety) and so far I have enjoyed them. I have only used a few simple items to crate this but I am quite please.

This ATC is for a challenge over by the Crazy Amigos. The challenge is "Men".

Thank you for stopping by on your journey through the blogging maze.

Have a crafty day, Mette

3 Muses Challenge 22

I will be having a few posts as I have still not worked out how to add several images to the same post. Everything gets jumbled up .......... still a few things to learn yet.

And I have not been able to do a lot of crafting as the whole house is/has been suffering from flu. When one gets better another gets worse lol. I did however manage a few ATCs.

This ATC is for 3 Muses challenge which this week is "Fowl Play". I wanted to take a different view and this is what came about. These guys are just so right for a humorous take and the caption "Owl Play" seemed fitting hehe.Hope it works and is ok for the challenge. My first time there.
Will be back later when I have nursed my sore throat and given my kids some breakfast. Thank you for taking the time to visit my little heaven.
Have a crafty day, Mette

High Hope Challenge No. 50

This week's challenge at High Hopes is all about kids. And we do all love those little monkeys - my yongest (age 3) is especially trying at the moment. I am sure I have gotten several more grey hairs, 3 more wrinkles and a nervous twitch lol. But I still love her.

Isn't this little girl adorable ???? With her teddy and blankie.

Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge No 3 "Autumn Colours"

Isn't she gorgeous!!!! This is one of the new stamps designed by Annie Rodrigue for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. Her name is Charlotte and I just adore her.
This card I made for the Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge where this week's challenge is to use Brown and Rust together with Green or Yellow. This is what I managed to achieve. Not bad since it's my first challenge for a year and that I usually only do ATCs hehe. I basically used matting and layering (always work so well) and Charlotte is coloured using my very worn water-colours.
Stamp: Kraftin' Kimmie stamps "Charlotte"
Sentiment Stamp: Hero Arts
Paper: Stash (since I started filling my paper by colour I loose the company name, used to file by company name)

How dumb do I feel!!!!

Stamp: Leanne Ellis
DP: MMBI (pink) - MME (green)
Flower: Prima
Gems: from Bunny Zoe's

Image is coloured with Prisma

There other day I mentioned (casually) to a few friends the fact that I was unable to post pictures on my blog due to the fact that my digi cam had broken. One of the ladies commented that she didn't have a digi cam either but used her scanner ................. DOH!!!!!!!!!!! (does that count as a totally blonde moment?)

As you can see I do have a scanner but at the moment I feel rather silly for not having thought of that myself. Both my sons collapsed on the floor in pains of laughter as I have been moaning for ages hehe. So now I am finally able to add something for you to see besides my "ramblings of a mad woman".

The card is for a friend's birthday - I hope she likes it.

Amy has been doodling
and they will be released as stamps in November. Oh - please go to her blog here and check it out (they look cute). She is also giving away yummy candy.
What!!!! You're still here ........................ hurry!!!

Have a crafty day, Mette

PS: daughter has fallen asleep on my lap. I am stuck here

Soooo fustrating

Well, I believe I mentioned that I had borrowed a digi cam which took "poor" photoes. But the silly man can't find the connection cable - hehe. So I still cannot post pictures and have absolutely no luck.

I did venture to my local craft shop - I don't go there often since they started to sell Sugar Nellie stamps. It can get very expensive. This time I resisted and only got what I needed - EZmount.
Charlotte has been mounted and inked up .................... love her and want the others hehe.

I have completed 2 of the monthly ATC challenges. Addicted to ATC theme is Harvest. Monthly ATC Swap's theme is Xmas with the use of glitter and gems. Only need to ATC Swappers theme which is Spooky and halfway there so should be in the post end of the week. For anyone who love to make and swap ATCs please pop over and check them out. I have only been doing them for 1 month but I was jumping up and down when I received my first swap lol.
A sad news is that Tilda and Friends are stopping due to lack of participants. I will miss them as I do the weekly challenges but can't post .

Before I bore anyone lucky enough to visit my blog I would just like to say .......

Have a crafty day, Mette

Newest stamp member

This super stamp landed on my door mat this morning. Isn't she just gorgeous. I love these quirky stamps from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.
Unfortunately I discovered I do not have anymore EZ-mount so I can't ink her up yet :(. Ah well, another trip to the local craft shop hehe.

Have a crafting day, Mette

The cupcake ATCs were made for Addicted to ATCs September swap "Cupcakes. I made identical ones for easiness although I changed the colours scheme.

These I made for the ATC Swappers September swap "Favorite Stamp". And at the moment I love Anya stamps.
I made 4 identical ATCs as it was easier. I quite liked them :).

Have a crafty day. Hugs, Mette

Cool gadgets

I am beginning to get the hang of adding cool gadgets etc to my sidebar. 6 months ago I was totally in the dark. Just added a cool music playing thingy for you all hehe.

On the crafty side I have now finished 2 of the monthly ATC challenges - only the spooky one left to do. On that note - Tilda & friends will be ending in 3 weeks due to lack of participants :(. I always do it put at the moment can't post my result.

I did borrow someone's digi cam but it takes terrible photos (might have to experiment a little). So for now nothing to show but feeling good.

Have a crafting day, Mette

Logged on this morning to the devastating new that Stephen Gately from Boyzone is dead - only 33 years old. I am in shock. Far too young to die for anyone.
I have always liked Boyzone and they had just launched a come-back.
Sad day.

I started on my christmas cards and made 2.
Went into Derby today with my oldest and my youngest. My middle son has got himself a little sunday job to pay for his Xbox games.
My trip to Derby almost ended with me having a heart attck - my son took me up in the Derby Eye ( a smaller version of the London Eye). I HATED IT. 60m up in the air and I couldn't even enjoy the view. Hehe. At least my kids enjoyed it so maybe money worth spent????

No activity for a very long time - one being that I do not have a digital camera and two being loss of good old mojo.
Re-modelling my blog and will hopefully start agin soon. (Still need camera for adding pictures of my crafting disasters).
