So if you were at my class yesterday, please leave a comment with your e-mail (saving me some time finding them at work, lol)

Cupcake Craft Challenge 61

Its Monday again and time for another Cupcake Craft Challenge. This week we would like to see you use stitches and buttons on your card. And I have to admit I took out the sewing machine and was so eager to get my sewing machine back that I forgot to unfold the card when I was sewing on the card and ended up sewing it all together, making it impossible to open. LOL, so I had to add a new base and this is how it ended up:

The vintage style is something that I enjoy looking at but don't feel I have the hang of so I have challenged my self to make some for Christmas and this is my first attempt.


  • Stamp: Kreativ Hobby - God Jul
  • Image: Vintage print from Minne-hjørnet.
  • Pattern Papers: Graphic 45 - Christmas Past Collection.
  • Embellishments: Old hymn page, Tim Holtz ticket, Lace from my granny, Buttons from my granny, half pearls, flowers from Panduro and Wild Orchids, Scrappers Floss, Small cake paper heart.

Martine Vik Magnussen

Many of you have heard about the Martine Vik Magnussen, a young Norwegian student that was found raped and murdered in London, March last year. Martine was a friend of a friend and therefore I would like to invite you all in joining the Facebook group: "Ta del i oppklaringen av drapet på Martine Vik Magnussen - Se dokumentaren!" On Wednesday there will be a signature campaign and I hope as many of you as possible could take the time to sign it. This will help put pressure on the English, Yemen and Norwegian government to find justice.

Thank you for caring and taking the time out of you day to help! And remember this is not just for Martine, but for you and me and our rights to justice.

If you could also be so kind to blog about the Facebook group on your personal blog I would appriciate it. Leave me a comment if you do and I will randomly pick one of you to recieve some crafty goddies!
