TPS Confirmation card

Vel 17 mai kom og gikk ~ eller regnet bort kan man vel heller si ;) Koste meg heller inne på scrapperommet med å lage konfirmasjons kort! The Paper Shelter har mange nydelige digi stempel sett, med både digitale ferdig fargelagde bilder (som det over) og ark som står til, lettvindt for de kjappe kortene. Og digistempler om man vil fargelegge selv! 
Denne jenta heter 'Eva and her ferret', men røyskatten har jeg 'croppet' bort siden ikke alle konfirmanter er så heldig å ha en som kjæledyr ;) 

..Today, from childhood
to youth you will go..
Don't forget that you reap
what you sow..

inside of the card ~ with a money pocket  

Our national holiday on the 17th of may came, and it rained away, while I sat in my warm & cozy scraproom making cards instead.. letting all the other people getting soaked and getting the flu instead! *lol* ;)  Nah, never was one for celebrating in style ~ don't even own a bunad (norwegian traditional dress), although I do have a couple of digital stamp ones!
The Paper Shelter has got lots of sweet digistamp sets ~ with both linearts and colored images (like this one I'm using) wich is awesome for those quickie cards. And there is also papers to go along with the designs, very handy! This girl is named 'Eva and her ferret' although I've cropped the ferret away, as not many confirmands has ferrets as pets on their special day ;)

Circe Lounging with Lion... Aslan? :)

Håper alle får en kjempefin 17 mai og grunnlovsfeiring imorgen! Og forhåpentligvis flott vær! Krysser fingre og tær for at sola kommer, men det ser litt mørkt ut.. ;)
Vår sponsor er AuroraWings for denne ukens utfordring #36 hos Creative Fingers ~ og som vanlig har vi 'Lag-hva-du-vil' med et valgfritt tema som denne gangen er 'Girly'! Jeg fikk dette nydelige digistemplet å vise frem ♥ 

Har forresten begyndt å merke kortene jeg lager på en litt annen måte ~ med navnet mitt på tvers over bildet/stemplet, for å beskytte produsenten først og fremst, men også for å unngå at noen 'tyvlåner' kortene mine uten å si fra og later som de er deres... o_O Det har faktisk skjedd!

I was so lucky to get this gorgeous stamp from our sponsor at Creative Fingers this week, AuroraWings. Our challenge #36, wich is always anything goes ~ with optional theme of 'Girly' this time. You're welcome to join us!

This image is named 'Circe Lounging with Lion and Flowers' and is from the greek mythology ~ but it may as well be the lion Aslan in the Chronicles of Narnia with Susan! I had a real flashback to the Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe while painting ♥ One of my favourites authors is C.S.Lewis, and I added a quote inside from one of the books;

Tomorrow is the 17th. of May wich is our (Norway) national holiday. And this year it's extra special as we're celebrating 200 years as a nation! I'm going away for the weekend ~ and really hope the weather is good! Knock on wood.. ;)

It is a shame how much stamp-theft there's going on online.. especially on Pinterest!

Sad that one have to take such measures!

Oh my! My migrains has been disturbing my sleep pattern, so I get confused what time and day it is! Or... maybe there's a weeping angel lurking here somewhere? *jikes!* Almost made me forget to post my card today (tonight) luckily still a few hours ahead of USA, it's very handy when it comes to blog challenges that! ;) 

And yes, I am still playing around with my blue and green inks! Promise I'll change it up for my next card! *lol*
I wrote at length about the Gelli plate on this post here ~ video links ++ And I'm totally in love with this tool! I used it to create my background, wich is masked and used alot of different techniques on, like mixed media with stencils and paste! Fun Fun Fun!
