Simple chocolate gift + Award + Candy

For the Passion for ProMarkers Facebook challenge prize (in addition to the stamps) I have made this simple cover for my fave chocolate, the Kinder Maxi and this is how it turned out:

I have used the June Bug papers from Basic Grey and this sheet was so decorative on its own so I didn't want to add to much stash.

And also I have got an award, I'm really bad at passing these on and I know I have forgot about one some time ago when I got this one. I'll try to be better! :) This one I got from Sarah and she has given it to all us PfP girls.

And I want to pass this one on to all my blog readers! Thank you so much for all your wonderful comments! I'm such a sucker for comments here on the blog so I really appreciate them! :)

And hurry to Madeleines gale verden for some yummy flower candy! :)

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful weekend! I'm off to a festival that my friends are arranging and its going to be so much fun seeing all my old friends again!! Have not seen them in forever. Its the most cosy festival in the world, I'm sure! :)

Trykkpressa - Stars

This months challenge at the Norwegian cardmaking magazine Ett Trykk was to make something with STARS. if you wanted you could do it freestyle. And at first I thought hey that's a great idea, but after numerous attempts I just went with my "regular". And this is how it turned out:

The Gorjuss girl has stars on her dress (click on the picture for a larger view) and I have added some purple QK stars. I just love purple so this was a fun card to make! Trykkpressa also wanted the card to be inspired by playing and having fun, and if I were flying, hanging on to my baloon I would think I would be having pretty much fun :) (before I would get worried about how to get down)

Thanks for looking and for the lovely comments you leave behind! I love them :)

  • Stamps: Gorjuss girl (Thanks Kimmi for the image!!)
  • Pattern Papers: Basic Grey - Wisteria
  • Embellishments: Ribbon from Søstrene Grene, Metal charm, Mulberry flowers, Star gem, Star die, Glitter glue, Rubon from Melissa Frances, Dots CB embosser folder.

First I just wanted to say to everyone who participates in the challenge to please use PROMARKER pens when entering, there has been so many people using SU' pens, Copic and etc. I can not understand the difficulty of entering a challenge that is
ONLY for ProMarkers pens and using the actual pens from Letraset. THANK YOU!!


Now on to this weeks challenge, Helen has set the color to GOLD & RUBY and the extra is to use jewels and gems. And this was a tough one as I had no good papers to macth. But I did get to try out my new stamps with the norwegian costumes and the I swirled up the orange paper a bit and this is how it turned out:

I have used Bazzill CD, MME DP, ScrapeMagasinet stamps colored with Blush, Dusky Pink, Ivory, Rudy, Poppy(thank you Beate for lending the marker to me) Gold, Sandstone, Cool Grey 1 and 2, Autum Leaves swirls stamps, metal charms, gem stone from Kaiser Craft and ribbon from stash colored with Ruby ProMarker.
