There is snowing like we are entering a new iceage. It just don't stop! I can't remeber ever to have had snow lying for this long. Everyday the newspaper is full of news about trailers beeing stuck and holding up traffic. We have to dig ourself out of the door every moring. Well, well, I guess spring will come.... some day.

This weekend my mother is coming to visit. On saturday we are going on a oneday trip to Aalborg in Denmark. They have got a big shoppingsenter there. It is not very cheap to go to Denmark anymore, but we can still do som good deals on meat. We will take the boat over in the morning. it takes 3 1/2 hour, drive down to Aalborg to spend the day and then take the boat back in the evening. I sure hope that there is not this uch snow down there, but I guess there is.

This "Belt buckle" is actually a piece of a necklace. I buy cheap necklases and pick them apart for embellisment ;o)

Her bare snør og snør det. Jeg tror kanskje at vi er på vei inn i en ny istid. Kan ikke huske at vi har hatt så mye snå, så lenge noen gang. den har jo ligget siden før jul jo!

Det er skikkelig galematias. Jeg likte så godt nyheten i Stavanger Aftenblad i går med overskriften "Å, skal piggene på kjettingen stå utover?" Jeg syns synd på alle disse stakkars utenlandske sjåførene som blir sendt opp hit uten hverken utstyr eller penger.

These roses were just plain white so I added some distress ink to the egdes of them to give them some more life.

I got this rosestamp in the mail today. It is from Impression Obsession and I fell in love when I saw it. When it arrived today I just had to use it right away!
I have colored it with a mix of watercolorpencils and Distress ink.

I won't have time for crafting or blogging over the weekend, so I guess I will see you sometime next week. Thanks for stopping by and thanks so much for all your encouraging comments! You make my day!

Jeg fikk dette rosestempelet i posten i dag, sammen med litt annet gøy. Stempelet er fra Impression Obsession. Jeg hadde egentlig ikke tenkt å kjøpe noe stempel, men jeg falt sånn for denne rosen - måtte bare ha!

På fredag kommer mamma på besøk og på lørdag tar vi oss en aldri så liten tur til Bilka i Ålborg, så det blir ikke mye tid til å leke med stempel i helgen. Jeg får ta det igjen neste uke.

Takk for besøket og hjertelig velkommen tilbake!
