Olympics, DT card for HM&FMC

It is time for another theme over on the
House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge,

this time it was our lovely Heather's turn
to choose the theme and she chose,
can you guess................ "Olympics" -

anything to do with sports/games..
if your stuck you could get patriotic and use the colours og your flag.


I did not have a proper image for my project,
so I had think and be creative.

In the end I descided to use this little cutie
called 'Class Clown', and repleaced the pencil,
rubber and staple with a print of the Olympic rings.

I was in doubt wether to use the colours of the
Danish or Norwegian flag- I'm from Denmark
but live in Norway.

But this wonderful paper line from Maja Design
called 'Lantliv' (Life in the country)
contents red , white and blue, so today
Norway was the winner!

I made a simple round easel card with the little mouse
and his rings in the sky.



We have two generous sponsors for this callenge:



House-Mouse Designs


giving a lucky winner a $25 gift certificate

and

Janet from Pink Gem Designs
giving one lucky winner this 'Best of British' digi kit.



Thanks for looking, the DT have all made gorgeous cards for
your inspiration so hop on over to the
HM&F Monday Challenge to see them.

Gruffies and Happy Hoppers creation directly

Say Hello!

Så kom sommeren endelig, hvor er det dejligt.

Flere vejrudsigter tyder dog på at dagene
fremover vil bli' koldere og vådere igen, lidt øv!

Jeg har igen lavet et par næsten ens kort, det er bare farverne
og kant puncen der er forskellige.


Her har jeg brugt blomstret mønsterpapir fra Basic Grey.
Gult og rosa er nok ikke de farver jeg bruger mest,
men jeg synes papiret er flot.

Sommerfuglene er lavet med min nye Martha Stewart
'Punch All Over The Page' .

Tekststemplet er fra LOTV, 'Mixed Circular Sentiments'.



Til det det grønne kort har jeg brugt papir fra BoBunny,
og noget hvide papir med prægede/embossede blomster.

Jeg har haft det i evigheder, men aner ikke hvor der er fra.

Jeg er ret vild med den punch jeg har brugt på dette kort,
den er anvendelig til alle typer kort.



Det går op for mig at jeg helt har glemt at
forografere bagsiderne på kortene.

Det er da vist første gang det er sket,
men jeg vælger at skylde på den -forbigående- sommervarme!

Nyd jeres dag, hvor end I er.

O for Open it up, DT card for ABC Christmas Challenge.

Wednesday and time for a new theme at
ABC Christmas Challenge.

I'm the lucky one hosting this time.

We've reached the letter O, and I've picked the theme

O for Open it Up!

Decorate the front and inside of your card/creation and if
you're feeling extra creative, you can do the back, too.

I love to see cards decorated at all four sides,
but I must admit paying the postage on my Christmas cards last year.....

It cost me a fortune, but it was worth while!

This year I've devided my Christmas cards in
'personally delivered cards' and 'mailed cards'!


My card for today is definitely a personally delivery card!




I have used a lovely image from Magnolia for my card.
'Tilda and Edwin on ice' it's called.
Look at Edwin how caring he's holding his Tilda.

Or maybe he's just a newbie skater?!

Tilda's wearing paper piercing clothes.



The papers are from Maja Design, I love them!
For once I have distressed the edges with distress ink.

The embellishments consist of pearls, Seam Binding,
and a sparkling snowflake made with
a die from Marianne Design.
And a little mittens charm added to the bow.


For the inside I have used the same papers and the
Martha Stewart snowflake die.

The sentiment is from Norsk Stempelblad, saying 'A warm
Christmas greeting from us to you'.


At the other side there's space for a personal regard.


I often makes my back sides as the front in miniatur,
and use my personal ' handmade by' stamp.


I have used the sketch from Sketch N Stash.




For this challenge we have two fabulous sponsors:

Sommerfuglekort

For ikke så længe siden havde jeg brug for et
par hurtige fødselsdagskort.

I al sin enkelthed kom de til at se sådan ud.


Sommerfuglene er lavet med en die fra Die-namics.

Under sommerfuglene mønsterpapir fra
Basic Grey serien 'Kioshi', og en stribe med ensfarvet Bazzil.

Stemplet med 'Gratulerer' er fra 'Kort og Godt'
hvis jeg ikke husker helt fejl.


Helt enkel bagside med mønsterpapir og mit håndlavet af stempel.

N for Not A Card, DT project for ABC Christmas Challenge

Hi Christmas Crafters, here is a reminder for our ongoing
challenge at ABC Christmas Challenge.

Wilma is hosting this time and the letter N stands for

Not A Card.

For sponsor information and more inspiration,
please head over to the ABC Christmas Challenge blog to see
my teamies' fabulous creations.



I have made a corner bookmark, using 'To Ski or Not to Ski'
a cute Gruffie trying to ski downhill.
It's the first time I use him, a great image.

He is coloured with Prismacolors.
For my first image I used my Distress Inks,
but I couldn't make the fur look good,
so I had to give it another try.



The papers are from Papirdesign, a Norwegian company.
I love the blue and brown together.

The snowflake border punch is from Martha Stewart.



A close up on my little fellow, can you see the sparkling snow?

Charm, pearls and ribbon are from my stash.

Summer Holidays, DT card for HM&FMC

A quick look in my calendar tells me it's summer,
but looking out the window, I'm not so sure....

But we have days off, playing cards, despite the weather eating
out in the garden, walking, watcing movies.

House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge
are trying
to bring you the summer feeling with our new challenge;

Summer Holidays!

Christine is hosting the challenge this time, and she wants
you to share with us anything to do with summer fun.




I have used a new stamp of mine, 'Gone With The Wind',
a cute image with a Happy Hopper (Happy Flyer?).

A really big image, so the space for embellisments
is rather limited.

The lovely paper is from Kaisercraft.


I have sponget cloudes using Bev's pattern and tutorial here.
Thank you Bev, for sharing your ideas.

There's added Glossy Accents on to the Kite
to make it look more real.

The round sentiment is from LOTV, Mixed Circular Sentiments.


On the inside, a part of the image, when I had stamped it
I realised that a better idea would be, if I had stamped the
Happy Hopper disapearing out of the card at the right.

But stamped is stamped!


On the backside my personal stamp as usual.




We have two prizes for this challenge:


The Lucky winner will receive a $10 voucher to Di's Digi Downloads Shop


and

our very own Christine will be giving one lucky person
a choice of an un-mounted House Mouse Designs set
of their choice from Joanna Sheen.


Don't forget that you can also submit your own House-Mouse, Gruffies and Happy Hoppers creations directly to the Official House-Mouse Designs site found HERE! Simply look for this button on the site's sidebar called "HMD By Me Gallery", and follow the steps for uploading your HMF projects.


Hope you will be joining in the fun.

We can't wait to see your awesome SUMMERTIME creations!

Girls just wanna have fun!

Endelig week-end og fri for mange af os.
Sikkert også feriestart for en god del.

For ikke så længe siden fyldte en venninde rundt.
Vi var flere som gik sammen om at give
noget til haven og et gavekort.

Jeg var hurtig til at sige 'Kort, det kan jeg ordne !'


Dette her er resultatet. En flok med glade gratulanter; os??

Det herlige stempel er fra Whipper Snapper.
Tekststemplet er fra Kraftin' Kimmie.

Papiret er fra Bo Bunny, perler og bånd fra mine gemmer.


På venstre side kan man stikke gavekortet ned i
lommen med 'Gratulerer stemplet'.

Jeg var nødt til at stemple en skålende dame her også.


Tja, ikke så meget at sige om bagsiden,
mit stempel med 'Håndlavet af'.

N for Not A Card, DT project for ABC Christmas Challenge.

Hello crafters, ABC Christmas Challenge here trying to save
the summer with a brand new challenge for you.

The weather here at my place is definitely great for crafting-
better than sunbathing and swimming!

But hopefully the summer will come. Those of you having fine
summer weather, please send some of it my way.


Wilma
is hosting this challenge and
today's letter is N and the theme is


N for not a card.


I'm so looking forwards to be seeing your
creations for this challenge.

If you are in need of some inspiration, please take
a look here and see what my talented teamies have made.





Stamp Fairy is one of our sponsors and has kindly
given the team some images to use for this challenge.

I decorated a round box, using papers from Maja Design
and Clementine Winter from Stamp Fairy.

Darling Clementine is painted with Distress Reinkers,
and there's a lot of Stickles on the snow.

She is cut out because I wanted to emboss
the white background with a almost
new snowflake folder from Cuttlebug.

For once I have distressed the edges on the papers.


The original box was wooden colour, so first I painted it white.

The red ribbon fit perfect for the edge of the lid.
The text says 'Happy Christmas'.
I guess you could translate it yourself.


Please bear over with me, I'm showing you a lot of
photos today, of the box from different angles,
but I really love how it turned out.

The beautiful swirl snowflake border is made with a
die from Memory Box. It was a bit difficult
to cut it out, but with a bit of patience I did manage.


The ticket sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps, and the round
one in the bottom of the box saying 'Best wishes for a happy
Christmas and a happy new year' is from Unik Stempel Design.


I had to find a place for my usual 'Handmade by' stamp.




We have to sponsors for this challenge.


Simon Says Stamp

giving a $20 gift voucher to a random winner.


and

Gerda from Stamp Fairy



Giving a $10 gift certificate to the shop.

Lets Get Fruity, MW reminder for HM&FMC

Happy Holiday mousey friends, hope you're enjoying
summertime and days off- if it's summer where you are.

It's Monday and I'm here with a midway reminder
for this fortnight's House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge.

Our theme- Let's Get Fruity- is chosen by Paula.




It's the first time I'm inking up this cute image.
Eating Blueberries, it's called.
I love their small blueberry blue mouths.

The papers from Maja Design- also with blueberries on-
were so very perfect for this image.


I have added Glossy Accent on to the berries.

Button and pearls are from my stash.

The Seam Binding is coloured with
my Distress Reinkers.

The sentiment is from LOTV.


One little happy mouse jumping up and down
at the inside of the card.


Well, here you have the backside;
