Beautifull Love!

Å så deilig å sette seg ned og lage kort! Etter at både mandag og tirsdag har vært 'tur til tannlegen dager'... Både den plagsomme kvasse kanten på en jeksel er slipt ned og den dyre tanna med krøllete røtter ~ tannlegen sa 'S-formet rot' så jeg er glad den ikke måtte trekkes, bare drepes og rotfylles og betales i dyre dommer på... *au au* Men gliset er strålende bra nå :)
 Den siste samlingen digitale freebies på utfordringen hos CDAC hadde et kjempenydelig ADFD stempel som jeg simpelthen måtte fargelegge ~ som jeg aldri blir trøtt av å si: Jeg elsker A day for Daisies digis'ene!

In the latest CDAC challenge there was this gorgeous digi from Tammy at ADFD! ♥ It was pure joy to get my inks out & create a card, after two days with dentist appointments... not very keen on rootfillings & those metal thingies that have jagged edges & is screwed down around the tooth.. u know what I'm talking about? Grinded into your gums.. *jikes* Needless to say I'm glad I'm not going back for at least a year *fingers crossed* :)

a Whimsy Home!

Tror aldri jeg har strevd mere med et kort før! CLP (se link under) sin skisse utfordring gjorde nesten at jeg halveis i kortlagingen holdt på å kaste hele greia... og det var en helt enkel og grei skisse tilogmed!! 
Klarer aldri å se for meg hva jeg skal bruke før underveis, så skisser er altså ikke helt min ting nei.. ;)
Gratulations on a New Home!
Struggled really hard with this sketch from CLP ~ almost gave up even if it was a nice an neat one! Think sketches aren't really my thing ~ more of a 'make things up as I go along creating' type *lol*

Lady Victoria's ♥ Cupcakes!

Kenny K's digistempler er bare SÅ kule ~ sexy beibs og hotte mannfolk... Dette er Lady Victoria, en av flere råstilige steampunk bærter :)

Et Kjempetips til alle digi-fans: 
Nå har jeg begyndt å gå over digistempel-trykkene som jeg printer ut (inkjet Canon) med luftpistolen min, først en gang - kjølne, så en gang til - kjølne, og kansje gjenta enda en gang... Dette funker kjempebra!!! Trykkene blir så og si vannfast, selv om det er 'vanlig' inkjet printer, og jeg har ødelagt alltfor mange trykk når jeg har malt dem tidligere (altså med distress inks på akvarellark).

Kenny K's stamps are just awesome ~ I LUV the cheekyness of the sexy guys & girls! Especially the steampunk babes, they are all steaming with hottness! :)

I'm entering my easel-card in theese challenges:
CardMadFairy's Digi Days ch. #26. ~ Hearts
Fairy tale #34. ~ Love, Love, Love!
Kenny K's Krafty Girlz #78. ~ Off to work we go! / or NO Flowers!
One Stitch at a Time #98. ~ Use a Digi / Anything Goes! (My 2nd entry!)
Top Tip Tuesday #69. ~ Valentines & Top Tipper week!
The Poodles Parlour ~ Anything goes!

My Top Tip is 4 digi-stampers who use distress inks: 
Go over your digital print (aquarelle/watercolor paper) with a heatgun! First once and let it cool off, repeat two, three or more times. It really works wonders ~ it's almost as good as using permanent stamp inkpads! :)
