CMNs 5th birthday

This month we are celebrating Copic Marker Norges fifth birthday! Happy Birthday to us. To kick off the month we have a new birthday challenge. There will be loads of fun things both on the blog and facebook page during the month, so be sure to keep an eye out as there are some great prizes to be won!

The card I made for the birthday is done with an image from Tiddly Inks that I absolutely adore. The image is obviously coloured with copics. Most of the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and lace and some flowers from Live and Love Crafts

Country cupcake

Almost weekend. I am actually looking forward to tomorrow. Some ladies at work have decided to do a hobby day. It will be interesting to see what they all make, and have some time to sit and craft. I have never been to anything like this, so I am all curious about it!

A colourful image sometimes deserves a colourful card. I had this cupcake themed paper in one of my Papermania pads and the colour matched the image perfectly. I decided to frame it with the pinky-red colour of the image and used a similar colour to frame the image. What I used was actually a cupcake wrapper, or whatever they are called. All the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the punches by Martha Stewart, the card base from Craftwork Cards and the image from Lili of the Valley.



The cupcake fairy

Ah, weekend at least! I have got so many projects to get done and the weekend will be perfect, especially as the weather seems to have a fit and has decided that mid-March is the ideal time for more snow…

Todays card is made with papers from Bildmålarna, a pre-coloured image by Mo Manning available at The Hobby House. Pearls and flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the ribbon from a local shop, distress ink by Tim Holtz, branches made with a Martha Stewart puncher and the sentiment stamp is by Lili of the Valley.

This card has been entered into the following challenges:

Cute Card Thursday – Anything goes
Divas by Design – Put on some pink
Anything Goes – Seeing double
Incy Wincy Designs – Things that begin with F

I am so excited that I have been picked amongst the top 3 at Incy Wincy Designs! Thank you so much for the honour!

Fairy cupcake

Recently I bought some pre-coloured MoManning images from The Hobby House. As my friend loves all things girly and glittery I had to add glitter to the wings and added some darker pink lines with glitter glue. All the various leaves have been made using a Martha Stewart puncher. The papers are primarily from First Edition Paper, the smallest of their pads. I have used flowers all from Wild Orchid Crafts and the bow is also purchased from them.


This card has been entered into the following challenges:

Totally Papercrafts – Punch it
Party Time Tuesdays – Die cuts
Card and Scrap – Brug pastelfarger

Have a great weekend everybody!


Yey! My card was chosen amongst the top three at Card and Scrap!


Lingering thoughts of summer

It has been too long! I cannot believe it’s been nearly a month since I posted a card here. As I went through my picture files today I came across this. I made it this summer, but it looks like I forgot to post it up, so here it is! I will post several more the next few weeks, I promise!
