Slug Bug Meet

On Wednesday I went to a local slug bug meeting and I found these photo's that Even Kristian Mangerud took of my car. The longer I have this car, the more I love the colour! :) Check out Even's Flickr page, he has taken a great photo of Joachim's old car Rostfrei to.

Tomorrow I'm off to another meet at Lillestrøm Trog, bringing my Dad. What he does not know is that I'm stopping at a craft store to get some envelopes for all the slug bug cards I'm making at the moment. ;) I'll be selling them at a Volkswagen show next weekend.

Sukkersøtt Jubileumsutfordring #3

Hoping this airs just in time for the challenge end at 22:00. Challenge #3 was to make a card that defines you as a cardmaker or just use the stash that you favor. So I have used some stash I favor, brads, Martha Stewart punch, Creamy Brown ink, flowers with a cruel, ProMakres pens - ohh me love!, my new Sugar Nellie - Demure stamp (Thanks Denise!!!) QK, and ribbons. I also wanted to use some stamps from Stempelglede and some metal charms (n half pearls for this one seeing as I have the brads not to sure how they would match) but I had to time as seeing the deadline was at 22:00.

Also I have not added a sentiment, as of my lack of time, so if you have any suggestions to where I should put it, please leave me a comment! :)

Thanks for looking and wish me luck in the Sukkersøtt Celebration Challenges!! :)

Sukkersøtt Jubileumsutfordring #1

The second challenge at Sukkersøtt celebrations challenge was to make a folding card with your own twist! And I had a dream about a folding card the other day but cannot remember how it looked, shoot. So I have twisted my brain and came up with this:

Front side
Half way open
Layed down and open
Card fully open

Its a fun fold card and my twist is the inside panel falling down when you open the card, and displays three gorjuss girls. This card was much more time demaning then I had thought. I also choose to use yellow and brown as this is not a combo I use very often :)

  • Stamps: Sugar Nellie - Gorjuss Girl Set 2, Kort & Godt - Fødselsdag. Autum Leaves - Swirls
  • Pattern Papers: Daisyd's Paper
  • Embellishments: Half Pearls, Lace from stash, Pearl Glimmer Mist.
  • Tools: Cuttlebug (QK circle nestie), word window punch.
  • Medium: ProMarkers: Blush, Dusky Pink, Ivory, Mustard, Gold, Sandstone, Cinnamon, Cocco and Cool Grey 1. White Opaque Pen.
Thanks for looking and I hope you all had a wonderful day. My trip to the physiotherapist went good, but I'm dizzy like a bee. Tomorrows trip to the ciropractor will hopefully cure that! :) If someone only could heal my stomach I would be the happiest camper on earth! :)
