A spoon full of PWC and sugar from Friday Sketchers

På hytta i Ballangen er det godt å være. Fint vær har vi også, om enn ikke så sommervarmt som det man skulle ønske midt i juli... Lyst og fint er det nå uansett hvilken tid på døgnet det er, så det er riktig så inspirerende for kortlaging. Det mobile bredbåndet er gull verdt, asså, selv om nettbruken må begrenses en smule ;) Litt blogging er det kjekt å kunne gjøre herfra også...

Today I've finished a card that took me ages to make, and you can't tell when you look at it... Just moving flowers and ribbons and bling around for quite a long time *haha*

Anyway; I've combinated three challenges here. I've used Claudia Rosa's design at Friday Sketchers to make a card for a girl (A Spoon Full of Sugar) who becomes a teenager (Papertake Weekly Challenge).


At the front I've used my brand new stamp from Sugar Nellie, designed by Elisabeth Bell. This stamp was a part of Camilla's blog candy :) I did a mistake as I was stamping it, so I had to cut away the upper part of it and make a new background, with Distress Ink 'faded jeans' at watercolour paper... The image is painted with the same ink (as always) and the pattern paper is MME 'wild aspargus'. The swirl is cut with the Silhouette.
I really find these Prima flowers fabulous!!! In the middle I've put a button, and then a silver decor with a blue rhinestone in the middle.
So... that's my card for today :) And then to some big news - three of them as well :)

First a private one; Inga, my daughter, is going to USA as an exchange student next year, and she's been waiting and waiting and waiting to get her host family... Today the phone came, and she'll start the next school year at Battle Ground High School in Washington at September 2th.!!!!!!! This is really exciting news, and I have to admit I'm both happy and a bit scary... Suddenly everything gets so close, there's a certain family there! Inga has written about this happening in her own blog (at my blogroll) but this is written in Norwegian...
Then some great news for all the Norwegian card crafters: At Sunday we'll have our very first challenge blog!! Hurrayyyyyy :)
På søndag åpner Anita den aller første norske utfordringsbloggen, Sukkersött, og jeg er en av mange, mange, maaaaange som gleder seg til det!
And the last thing I want to tell you is to check in to my blog tomorrow - then you'll find some blog candy here!!!

Hi Hanne,
Your card is so pretty. I really like how you have done the flower centers, it is really effective. Your colouring is beautiful.
Well done for combining all three challenges.
I'm sure that your Daughter will be fine, and will have a wonderful time in the USA. It is only natural that you will worry...I would be the same...they grow up so fast!

Camilla sa...

Heisann DT Hanne!!:) Jeg ble så utrolig glad da jeg leste hos Sukkersøtt at DU var en av Teamet!! Wow!! De er kjempeheldige som har fått deg med seg, det er sikkert!!

Dette kortet er superfint som alltid:) Og passet jo bra med en liten bakkehaug der da, så var jo egentlig litt flaks med den stemplingsfeilen;)

Gratulerer til Inga!! Det går nok kjempefint, og for en opplevelse og erfaring for henne!:)

Ha en fortsatt god søndagskveld!
Klemmer fra Camilla.
