DT Card for the Squirrel and the Fox # 34: Party Time

Hi everyone, hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, and I wish you a fantastic New Year. 
Our sponsor for this next challenge over at the Squirrel and the Fox is :
Our generous sponsor is: Make it Crafty
They have some awesome digi stamps and real stamps as well. Go and check them out. This girls looks like she is ready for anything. I have tried a different type of fold for this one and am not too convinced that I like it yet. It was folded out of one complete scrap booking page 30 cm x 30 cm ( or 12 x 12 inches) The good thing about this one was it only needs to be one sided. If I can find the link to the original card, I will post it.
I always use pro markers for my colouring and the rest is from my stash. The finished size of this card is 15 x 15 cm. You fold in the corners to the centre, and then again. Then fold the inside corners back on itself. Done.
Blessings Hilde

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Sticky post

Hi everyone, I pray that you will all have a wonderful and peaceful Christmas. With all the things that have been recently going on in this world of ours, I hope that you would still believe in the good things of life.

I know that I will try my best to enjoy this season and not allow the hype that surrounds us get in the way. 
My plan is not to get stressed, telling myself it's OK not to be perfect, and not try to do it all myself. I will allow others to help and will enjoy Christmas and try to relax. 
THANK YOU  for being a follower of my blog and taking interest in my creations and posts. I really tresure every comment and even every page view. All I can hope for that I was able to pass on something interesting  to you. So a big heartfelt thanks and hug for your loyalty and friendship.
I pray that 2013 will bring you your hearts desires.
Depending on time, I might have a go at some more challenges, but if not, I will see you in the New Year.
Many, many blessings Hilde

So sorry to hear about the Sandy Hook Elementary Shooting

What a tragedy...... One wonders WHY? 
I am sure in time this will come out or maybe we will never know...
My heart and prayers goes out to the parents, families and friends and colleagues of these gorgeous little kids and teachers that have been murdered at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut.
This sort of tragedy is so life changing,  how would you cope? This will affect so many people for so many years to come.
Please take a moment to pray for those caught up in this awful thing...As a parent myself I can only imagine what it would be like, every parents worst night mare come true...
My heart aches for them, and as President Obama said , they had their whole lives yet to be lived....

DT Card for the Squirrel and the Fox # 32: Summer or Winter

Image by our sponsor : Robyns Fetish

Hi all , hope you had a great week. Well it's the Squirrel and the Fox time again, and this week we are asking you to create a Summer or Winter themed card. We are lucky here in Australia as we have been enjoying our Spring time. It's been a bit wet and stormy here in Sydney, but's that's normal. The Jacaranda trees are in full bloom, and some are starting to loose their beautiful flowers already, but they do only really flower during the month of November. But believe it or not today is the second day of Summer here Downunder and nothing says Summer more than a Sunflower don't you agree?
I used papers and embellies from my stash, the butterfly is a Stampin up die, I always use pro markers to colour my images. The Border punch is from MS, and there is nothing more fun to add than some bling and glitz to finish off a card....
Looking forward to seeing your creations, blessings Hilde

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Totally Papercrafts#145: anything but a Christmas Card
Moving along : 3 elements with the same letter( butterscotch(colour), bling, butterfly, birthday)

DT card for SAS4Kids: # 46 Winter fun for Kids

A snowman with leggings, hilarious, love this image from Crackerbox and the sentiment as well.
Snowflakes are a from an old punch I have had since forever and I used some silver foil papers for them, I always colour with pro markers, paper from my stash.

Hi everyone, hope you had a wonderful week. Well it's SAS4Kids  - Send a Smile 4 Kids - time again, and we are asking you to make a card with the theme of : Winter fun for Kids.
I have used two of our sponsors images.

Card One: Image from Crackerbox

Card Two: I turned the tag into a card and made it so you can open it, see pic. The image is a pre coloured image from Cuddly Buddly, so quick and simple, I love it. If you are in hurry and don't have time to sit and colour, these pre coloured images are perfect.
I used ribbons and papers from my stash, small doily cut into quarters bottom right, and the tag is a ready made large shipping tag, and I added the flap for a card on the back.
Have a wonderful weekend,
blessings Hilde
