CowGirl card & BlogCandy Winners :)

Scroll down if you're looking for the winners of my candy!

By the cute and Girly sin utfordring i Juni mnd. er bryllup - eller fra temaet; noe gammelt, noe nytt, noe lånt eller noe blått... Jeg har 'gravd' frem et gammelt stempeltrykk jeg ikke har fått brukt til noe, lagd ett 'nytt' ark, og lånt ei mønstersaks fra moren min :)
The June challenge at By the Cute and Girly is either a wedding card, or something from the theme: “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue..” I borrowed my mums zigzag-patterned scissors, made a new background paper, and the stampmotif is an old one I'd painted way back in july 2008 and not used yet :)

Stamps/Images: Bombshell stamps - Retro Cowgirls set. Magnolia - BakgrundsSwirl Bröllup. Scrapmagasinet - 27B (howdy COWBOY).
My Mind's Eye - Signature Suite - That Boy 'Rugged Stripes/Snake Skin Taupe'. And a handmade bacground note-paper :)
Embellishments: Walnut ink from Tsukineko & Tattered Angels glimmer mist 'coffee shop'. Zig-zag patterned scissors. Rubons from Nille (GIRL).

Wheeee! Now - This was what you came 4 *lol*
My 15.000 hits blogcandy is ended & so I've written down all your names on lots of paperpieces - and I let my mum handle the name-pulling. Easy-peasy!

The lucky big prize winner is:.....
Ann aka. The Flutterby Crafter!

And the follower lucky to get the big stamp-motif envelope is:..... Jan aka. tarotwisdom!

Congratulations to the both of you! I'm sorry I only have two prizes this time - but my blogaversary is soon coming up in July. I've been blogging for two years, and ofcourse that has to be celebrated with a sweet blogcandy! :)

Rough it Up Charlotte!

Denne ukas utfordring hos Kraftin' Kimmie er #31. å 'rufse det til'!

I didn't find this very hard - since all my cards are distressed almost 99%! But I made an extra effort - and pulled out my sandpaper!

Jumping by to say hello!

for en dårlig fantasi jeg har! Jeg brukte et par timer på å finne på en tekst til dette stempeltrykket! Hadde ikkeno tekst stempel som passet, så jeg måtte skrive noe selv.. Og kortet kunne liksom ikke være hva som helst - siden det er for en RAK på bloggen Stamped Art by Lisa ~ til Lisa's syke søster - dermed morsomt og lett i tonen... OG en frosk! Tror jeg fikk det bra til?
I've made this RAK froggie card for Lisa's sister Jayme ~ Stamped Art by Lisa blog :) I sent it in the mail tonight, and I wish it good speed over the atlantic oceans

Stamps/Image: Eat Cake Graphics - Go froggie go!
Bazzill Cardstock. Notabene - Natural handmade 'recycled cotton papers' from India. Prima journaling notepad bloc-notes.

MME Bohemia 'barefoot' gold gems. Prima 'Got prints?' #519179. Spellbinder Nestabilities - Curved Rectangles S5006, & Petite Scalloped Circle Large S4115.

Update: June 13th. I got an email from Lisa saying I won the Paperworks Co. Christmas Collection of stamps in this RAK for her sister Jayme. I am just happy she got so many sweet froggie cards! :)

Extra cute - Fairytale box!

Det var en gang... en proteinpulver box! That's just so cute bloggen kjører en ekstra utfordring - Extra Cute 9 - Eventyr! Midt i blinken for meg... Dro frem noen av mine favorittark og dobbelsidig tape - litt maling, og vips så var den støgge protein-pulver-boksen verdig ei prinsesse! ;) Boksen trenger ikkeno mere stæsj & bling - papiret glitrer og er vakkert nok i seg selv! ♥
The norwegian challenge blog That's just so cute has an extra challenge right now wich is Fairytales! I've altered an protein powder box, and created a box for a princess... or maybe for myself? ;)

Monochromatic Envelope-card!

Totally Papercrafts utfordring #18. var 'Monokromatiske farger'. Jeg brukte samme tutorialen som med det forrige konvolutt-kortet jeg lagde, kjempemoro å lage noe annet enn firkantige kort ;) Og siden dette ikke kan bli mere jentete i rosa - så passer det også til Quirky Crafts utfordring #29 - Girly Girl!
The challenge for Totally Papercrafts #18 is Monochromatic. And the Quirky Crafts challenge #29 is Girly Girl! Wich this is - made for a girl - and loads of Pink :) I made this after Anne's awesome Pixie Cottage envelope-card tutorial. The inside of the 'envelope-card' has a pocket in wich to keep a money-gift, as it's a card for a young girls traditional norwegian 'confirmation-day'.
