Advent card

Good morning everyone! This card is for a challenge at a webshop called Oppio, they want to see cards with red, brown and white and that you sign a call at this page. My links will only give you a lot of text in Swedish, I´m sorry for that, but I´m quite happy with the finished card and wanted to show it to you too :) And my Swedish readers still have some time to enter the challenge.

The sentiment says Adventstid and it means Advent time.
Decorpapers are from Panduro. Swirlstamp is Tim Holtz and sentiment is Landstoken. Corners are Cuttlebug. I´ve used red and brown shades of Versa Color and Distress Inks for distressing and stamping. Rangers Stickles for small dots. Buttons, gems and thread are from my stash.

Hope you are enjoying your weekend so far,

White Christmas

Good afternoon everyone! Have you been following Tim Holtz 12 tags of Christmas? He makes the most wondeful things, amongst them I saw some lovely memory capsules. He filled one of them with glitter to create a shaker pin. That inspired me for this card. As I don´t have the capsules I cut a hole with a Nestie and covered it with acetate from a veggie pack. I lined the inside border with foam pads and filled it with some glass beads (I made a first try with glitter but it was too static and covered the acetate).
The background is also cut out with a Nestie but a slightly larger size. I stamped it with a TH frame and a sentiment from Kortmakaren that says "Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year in Swedish. I also distressed it before I glued it to place at the foam pads.
The image is Magnolia and the swirl is TH, the decorpaper is Panduro, snowflake is Cuttlebug. Pearls are made with Rangers Liquid Pearls and I´ve also added Stickles for some texture.

Here´s yet another Christmas card, I went with the classic red and green. The wonderful layout is from Penny Black Saturday Challenge. It´s perfect for all scrap pieces, mine are from a deli Prima decorpaper.

The image is Penny Black and the sentiment is Kortmakaren. The red flower is created with QK and Cuttlebug dies. Big swirl is Sissix. Small swirls, corners and borderfrill are Cuttlebug. I made a charm from a Reprint brad. The red berries are made with Rangers Stickles and the star button is painted with Crackle Paint. Star button, thread, gem and roses are from my stash.

Cupcake Craft Challenges: red and green.
Simon Says Stamp Challenge: use a charm.

I´m quite overwhelmed this week. I have got two lovely badges:

And I did win a prize at By The Cute And Girly, a 20$ gift voucher at Simon Says Stamp. It must have been my lucky week, I´m very happy for this, especially as I´m just recovering from the flu. This made me feel so much better and I´ll soon be at my feet as usually :)

Addition: God Jul och Gott Nytt År means Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year in Swedish. Thanks for pointing it out Pops, did forget to mention that :)

Hope you all are doing well and don´t get the flu,
