Violett wings


I am so excited to be in Simon Says challenge Disigner spotlight this week!
I did not see that one comming, so I am very honored!

Because of this I thought that I might have a few more visitors this week so I gave my blog a makeover. A big Thank you to the Background Fairy for the images I have used!

This weeks challenge at Simon Says is an easy one, so enter as many times as you like. Just add "A little bit of green". That goes for just about anything don't it?

I have made my card after the MMSC # 45 sketch - wich was a bit different then usual. I am looking forward to see what the MMSC players will come up with. The Design Team sure did a great job!

My card is made with the inspiration from some beautiful DP paper from Websters Page. It is from the Natures collection and is called Violette Wings.

I cut part of the paper into squares and glued them onto some old newspaper DP, and then I cut out the butterflie also from the Violett Wings DP. I loved doing this because then I did not have to color anything ;o)

I sprayed the butterflie with Glimmer Mist and painted it a little bit. Some green in its circels and some copper around the egde.


The dark red paper is from a German company named efco, and the paper is called Writings.Thanks to Mum for bying this for me! The swirls is from my lovely aunt. I am soon running out of these, but I am so lucky that I am spending easter in her crafting room and will be able to add some more of them to my stock ;o)

Now you have to go check out the talented DT members at Simon Says, and then you have to go make a card with something green and enter the challenge!


Thanks for stopping by! You are welcome at anytime! Thanks for all the lovely comments you leave me, it means a lot to me and puts a big smile on my face!

Have a nice day and take care!

Jeg har fått klager igjen.... Jeg slutta å skrive både på norsk og på engelsk fordi det var så mye arbeid, men så begynner noen å klage igjen.... *sukk* Så her kommer norsk kortversjon!



Kortet laget til Simon Says Challenge.
Det var 440 stykker som deltok i utfordingen der sist uke, så jeg ble ganske overrasket over å vinne. De trekker vinneren ut av hatten, så alle som deltar har like muligheter til å vinne.

Det jeg ikke hadde forventet var å bli spurt om jeg ville være
Designer Spotlight for Simon Says denne uken. Jeg kunne naturligvis ikke takke nei til det!

Siden dette muligens kommer til å bety at jeg får noen flere besøkende denne uke så pusset jeg opp bloggen min. Jeg har funnet bildene jeg har brukt på The Background Fairy. Hun har mye lekkert i vintage stil som kan brukes til blogutforming.

Jeg har laget kortet etter skissen til MMSC #45 Jeg fikk vite at skissen var inspirert av meg og mine mursteinsvegg-kort. Det var jo litt morsomt.

Jeg har brukt et mønsterpapir fra Websters Page som heter Violette Wings. Klipt det i små biter og limt det sammen igjen. Sommerfuglen er klippet ut av samme papiret. Sommerfulgen fikk en dusj med Glimmermist, litt ekstra grønnfarge i rundingene og litt copperfarge rundt kanten. Det mørkerøde papiret under er kjøpt på Kontant Engros. Det er fra et tysk firma som heter efco og papiret heter Writings. Takk til Mamma som kjøpte det til meg!

Jeg har også bruk en swirl som kom i posten fra Tante. Jeg bruker de swirlene hele tiden. Det er godt jeg snart skal hjemover ;o) Bare 2 uker igjen til påske nå!

Så nå må dere ta en tur over til Simon Says og se hva deres dyktige designere har laget, og så må dere sette i gang og lage kort med noe grønt på! 440 sist uke - klarer vi å bli over 500 denne uken?

Takk for besøket og kom gjerne tilbake. Jeg setter veldig stor pris på alle hilsener som dere legger igjen til meg. Jeg løper til pc'en hver morgen for å se om det har kommet noe nytt og starter dagen med et stort smil! Takk!

Ha en riktig fin dag!

"Jeg har fått klager igjen...."
How I laughed - I know how difficult it is to write in a language not your own. What a lovely interpretation - so original. I can make out most of the Norwegian (I'm Swedish but was very young when my family moved to the UK so never learnt to read/write it, I just try!!!).
Grattis och jag kommer att titta in lite igen. Jag har just borjat med att blogga.....
