We have got a lot of snow this week so I tried to cheer myself up with making a colorful and friutiful card this week.

My image this week is a digistamp from our sponsor Doodle Pantry called FruitHat - I think this hat is so fun! This is a hat that will make the world smile! I have colored it with watercolorpencils, and then covered the whole thing with Diamond glaze.
I also just love that I just the other day found this little hatcharm to go with it.
If you, like me find coloring difficult then you really should stop by the Doodle Pantry blog. Laurie has got a lot of fantastic coloring tutorials there!

Our monthly sponsor is Lindys Stamp Gang. In her shop she has some very, very cool stuff. We all got to play with her "Try me out"-kits, wich is sprays with lots of shimmer in them - and I mean lots!

I got the Gossamer gold, the Cocoa bean copper and the Mission bells brown. And they are absolutely gorgeous! On these flowers I have used the Gossamer Gold. The flowers were original some peach colors, but just a little spray and they were gold. It is extremely hard to photograph shimmer, but thay look absolutely amazing in real life. I am in love!
I also love some of the names these sprays have got - I just must get my hands on the Screaming banshee black!

You really should stop by Lindys to see all the faboulus stuff she has! This is cardmakers heaven!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Now run over to the Mdinight Madness blog, check out the DT cards, get some inspiration and come play with us!

Herlig kort du har laget Gunn!!! Skikkelig stilig den lille metallhatten; passet perfekt til dit vårfrukt fat :-) Her regner det, og vinterfølelsen slipper taket ettersom gresset titter fram igjen; skal bli deilig når våren titter fram om noen mnd.
Utrolig flotte farger du har brukt på bakgrunnen din, og på blomstene :-D
Ha en super dag!
Klem Guro

What a fun card! I love the beads on the tag. That hat is really cute too! The gold shimmer you've used on the flowers is beautiful. It's amazing how metallic they look. (like they're dusted in real gold dust)

WOWZERS Gunn on the sparkle!!!! The colors really are spectacular! The names are very fitting don't you think? I love all the details you've put together here, especially the background dp, charms and lace! Beautifully put together!
Can't blame you for wanting Spring to come around as I'm sure the winter has been long enough for you already!
