Squirrel Summer Greeting

 
Så, endelig er sommern kommet til Nord-Norge også... Men huffameg, det så varmt at jeg smelter vekk! Hetebølgen fra Russland kunne jeg gjerne ønsket søringene fikk istedenfor oss.. Kroppen min tåler ikke 26+ grader (og 35 i sola!), er allerede plaget av hormonelle hetebølger, så jeg må bare beklage til alle som er hoppende glade ~ for jeg ønsker denne hetebølgen var over NÅ ;) 
Huff. Rett fra kjøleskap-tempraturer til sydenvarme.. Glad jeg har en isbit maskin og ei svær elektrisk vifte ♥

Kortet mitt er DT bidrag hos Creative Fingers #152. fra vår sponsor Wink Wink Ink. Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være :)

The summer has finally arrived in northern Norway, and I am not well pleased... It is too darn hot! It's a russian heatwave sweeping over us, and beeing used to refridgerator-and-freezer-temperatures so far this year (wich suits me just fine having hormonal hot flashes and issues), it is too much to take in. 26+ degrees in the shade and about 35 degrees on the sun-lit porch (not going out that way for sure)... I am melting! Could not have preservered without my big electric fan and ice-cube-making machine ♥

My DT card for this fortnights challenge #152. over at Creative Fingers has a supercute squirrel motif from our sponsor Wink Wink Ink, and as always it is an 'Anything goes theme'. You are more than welcome to join with your creations ♥

Shabby Chic Wedding card

 
Papirplanetens utfordring #18. ~ for juni mnd. har 'Bryllup ~ bruk blonde og/eller bånd' som tema. Du kan finne flere av stemplene og dies jeg har brukt hos Papirplaneten, linker nederst i bloggposten. Vi håper føler deg inspirert til å delta med dine kreasjoner hos oss ♥

Mitt kort er i shabby chic stilen, og som hoved motiv har jeg brukt et av mine absolutte favorittmotiver til bryllup ♥ Har lagd mange kort med dette stemplet fra Kort & Godt, spesielt etter jeg fikk MISTI'en, og det plutselig ble lett og få et fint, jevnt trykk. 3-4 stemplinger med grå pute, og en gang med versamark puta, klart embossingpulver og så varme-embossing ~ for å gi kortet et litt mere eksklusivt preg :)

http://papirplaneten1.blogspot.no/2017/06/utfordring-18-bryllup.html


This shabby chic themed weddingcard is my DT-inspiration for PapirPlaneten, an norwegian challengeblog and craft shoppe. Our theme for june is weddings, lace &/or ribbon. You are more than welcome to join with your creations, but the main prize is only shipped within Norway.

The main motif is a stamp from Kort & Godt, and it's one of my most used, especially for weddingcards. The heat-embossed silhouette looks so gorgeous in real life, hard to capture in the photo. I would not have been able to get such an impression without my MISTI ♥ took 3-4 stampings to get an even look, then once with the versamark, clear embossingpowder and heat tool. And it stamps perfectly each time :)

Mermaid Fun & Yummy Blogcandy Winner!


A couple of weekends ago I got my first Hero Arts Monthly kit! Yey Mermaids!  It could not be any more perfect as two of my nieces, and myself also absolutely LOVE everything mermaid related ♥ 
At the same time I received a parcel from Magnolia in Sweden, with some of the old hard-to-find rubbers. Really happy to get the swirly one, which I needed to replace the one I had wich was getting brittle and worn out after about ten years of beeing well used! 
So with my youngest niece visiting that weekend, we got to play with the lovely stamps and make a fantastic mermaid-birthday card for her mommy  ♥
Fun times :) 

I also have the Yummy BlogCandy winner to announce, via mr.random it is...

Fiki ~ Bad Kitty's CraftroomCongratulations!

Please email me at: tindaloo at hotmail dot com with your full name and address, and mention you're a BlogCandy winner in the topic so it won't get missed :)

Alien invasion?


Hvis du kjenner meg eller følger bloggen min så vet du at jeg elsker sci-fi ♥ Dette er absolutt ikke mitt første alien kort, og definitivt ikke det siste, de er så moro å lage! :) Hadde masse galakse-akvarellbiter liggende fra et tidligere kort ~ Greetings Earthling ~ og selve hovedfiguren var ferdig-fargelagt fra Wink Wink Ink, så dette gikk kjapt å lage. Har tilogmed enda flere galakse fargede biter igjen så det blir nok snart enda et alien kort! 

Lagde Alien kortet som mitt bidrag som DT på Creative Fingers utfordringblogg #130., hvor Angelique er vår generøse sponsor denne gangen! Som alltid er det 'Anything Goes', som betyr 'Lag-hva-du-vil', og du er hjertelig velkommen til å delta :)
http://creativefingerschallengeblog.blogspot.no/
(utfordringen blir litt forsinket!)

Har du forresten sett den nye BlogCandyen min? Mye flott å vinne der, og min måte å takke alle som følger bloggen min og titter innom og legger igjen så koselige kommentarer til meg. Trekker en heldig vinner etter den 25 mai!


If you know me and read my blog, u know that I LOVE sci-fi ♥ And this is not my first alien card, they are sooo fun to make! And it is very fun to make galaxies, actually this background is just a scrap watercolor leftover from a previous alien card ~ Greetings Earthling ~ and was super quick to do as the alien figure from Wink Wink Ink was pre-colored. I still got some fun circles left for another futuristic card too :)

My alien card I made as DT creation for Creative Fingers challenge #130. with Angelique ~ our supreme team leader & blog owner ~ as the generous sponsor this time. The theme is as always 'Anything Goes', create whatever you wish, and you are most welcome to join in! :) ~ (it's a bit delayed ~ check back later)

And btw., did you notice my pinned BlogCandy up for grabs?! Loads of yummy gorgeous goodies for a lucky winner! Enter before the 25th. of may :)

Unique Friend cards


Sånn først og fremst sender jeg en stor unnskyldning til alle jeg har neglisjert, både online venner og 'real-life' venner ♥ Har levd litt i min egen boble, mye plaget med smerter, dårlig helse, og en litt for stor del av familie tragedier... Har blitt litt mye i det siste, og siden jeg alltid har trivdes best på egen hånd og pusle med mine ting, så kan jeg lett bli litt anti-sosial *hehe* Tror faktisk at uten bloggen og fb så hadde jeg blitt en huleboer ~ hvis hulen hadde innlagt vann og tv og internett.. og scrapperom vel og merke ;)  Skal prøve å være mere sosial ~ men om jeg er litt fraværende, så vet du litt hvorfor ♥

Har du forresten sett den nye BlogCandyen min? Mye flott å vinne der, og min måte å takke alle som følger bloggen min og titter innom og legger igjen så koselige kommentarer til meg. Trekker en heldig vinner etter den 25 mai!

http://papirplaneten1.blogspot.no/2017/05/mai-utfordring.html

Det går mot vår (selv om folk sørpå påstår at den allerede er kommet, så er vi ikke helt overbevist her nord) og Papirplanetens utfordring #17., er for Mai mnd. og har som tema ~ Bli inspirert av sangen "Kom Mai du skjønne milde" og / eller bruk fargene Rødt, Hvitt og Blått. Her kan du høre sangen på youtube :)

Har lagd disse to kortene som mitt inspirasjonsbidrag, og har hentet farger og inspirasjon fra sangen og våren ~ ja det er jo lov å håpe, her jeg bor er det langt fra sommer i lufta, det snødde igår! :)
Du kan finne flere av stemplene og dies jeg har brukt hos Papirplaneten, linker nederst i bloggposten. Vi håper føler deg inspirert til å delta med dine kreasjoner hos oss! ♥

"you are my friend ~ UNIQUE ~ in every way"

...

First of all, so sorry for not beeing around online, or beeing much present in 'real life' really :P My health is an on-going struggle each n' every day, with some ups and downs, and I have kind of been a recluse for the longest time (wich suits me just fine, but it's often frowned upon beein so anti-social *lol*), so I will try to be more present in the future! :) 
On top of dealing with health issues, we have also had alot to deal with within my family lately ~ many tragic events.. so I have not been keepin' up with commenting for quite some time. I appreciate all the visits on my blog though, and hope to be able to visit you all back sometime! ♥ 

Meanwhile ~ as my way of giving back, did you notice my pinned BlogCandy up for grabs?! Loads of yummy goodies for a lucky winner :)


My two cards today has a spring feeling, but it is still cold up here in the northern parts of Norway, it even snowed yesterday! :) Theese are my DT inspiration for PapirPlaneten, a norwegian challengeblog and craft shoppe, and the theme for May is either to use Red, White & Blue (colors of our flag, and this month we have our constitution Day on May 17th.) or to be inspired by the norwegian song "Kom Mai du skjønne milde" ~ about longing for the spring to come :)
