Korthobby Giveaway

Korthobby fyller 1 år i januar og har en flott giveaway for å feire jubileet. Sjekk den ut her.

You & Me

Dette kortet er laget til That's So Cute Surprise der man skal la seg inspirere av ordene "Du og jeg". Jeg tenkte det måtte være perfekt for å bruke de nye "you & me" wood chipsene mine. Valgte å gå for et romantisk tema med vinterlige litt sarte, kjølige farger.

Monochromatic style birthday card

A birthday card in a masculine monochromatic style using tones of black-grey. Just love the smoking dog!

Star die is from Marianne design. I used glue and Tim Holtz distress glitter on the biggest black rose to get a little bit of sparkle. Stamp is from North Star. I used this sketch from Cardabilities for the card:

Friends having a cup of tea

Aren't these girls sharing a pot of tea adorable! Gorgeous pale blue/turquoise papers from MME and flowers from Wild Orchid. Both dies are from Spellbinders.

2013 has been a busy year and living abroad I have not been able to meet my closest friends to catch up as often as I would like. My wish for 2014 is that I will get that opportunity more often, which this card represents.
