"thinking if you"


Today it is fathers day on Sweden - the first one without my father alive. 

This card is for him - thinking of you - not only today.
I didn`t think I would have you in my mind as often as I do. We have been separated for years but now I feel you closer to me than in a very long time. Maybe because there are no borders between us anymore? 
I feel your presens every day. In a happy way. 💓

This card is made with watercolors, NeobolorsII , a die from Kesi`art (paraplui) , a stamp from Stampotique (candle) and the text from Ali Edwards. 
I join the challenge at Simonsaysstamp where the theme this week is Thinking of you.

Wishing you a lovely sunday!

Embossing green

 Back from holidays, back from Vietnam...

...still thinking GREEN though,
and I believe that I will for a long time.

The best it yet to come? My hope for our green planet.

The latest challenge at Simon Says Stamp is all about embossing so I add this card to their 

Let`s hope November will bring us some sunny days as well! I know we are blessed to get rain but it could be nice to see some sun in between the clouds too !

work in progress


Playing with my gelli plate...

I get the feeling that my Christmas cards this year will be more pink than red.

Having fun!

The origami fox :) with a beautiful background!

 I made this card using the most beautiful background stamp EVER - morrocan tiles from Birgit Koopsen.

I embossed it black and then added another background stamp called "textures in my journal" ( by Zorrottes) which I embossed white..

I found an "oldie" in my stash - the autumn grunge leaf by Susan Weckesser and the last stamp used is the "renard origami" from Carabelle Studio.

This week at Simon says stamp the challenge is to use background stamps , so here we go!

sparkle and shine #enjoy the moment


At Simon Says Stamp this monday the theme is sparkle and shine. I`m in  the mood for coloring, stamping and cutting out images , so this is my tag for that challenge.

Sparkly flowers, dragonfly, caterpillar and even the eyes of the art doll.

It made me think of the quote;

" accept both compliments and criticism - it takes both sun and rain for a flower to grow"

Bye for now.

Gummiapan dies and stamps :)

A couple of years ago I met Gummiapan (rubbermonkey) at a trade fair in Germany. I like the quirky style.

Now I have been told that they make advent calendar loaded with dies - how cool is that ?

Of course I had to find my "old" box and put a card together.

Autumn will arrive pretty soon with its wonderful colours and loads of goodies to find in the forest.

So here we go - a card made with products from Gummiapan and with this card I join the wednesdaychallenge at Simon says stamp

...the very last one `for the road...

 Experimenting with different medias - love this freedom...

" a profound awareness of the universe that triggers feelings too deep and mysterious for words"

Take care out there!

maybe the last one before the holidays???

 "just another tag"

Using gelli prints, transperancy film, a collage image from Flow, loads of different colors and even rub-ons from Studio Calico. I had fun again! 

A little gift for the latest member in our local yoga-group. 

Take care out there!

having even more fun...!

 ... and now I can`t stop my self...!

Another tag  from left-overs and my latest stamp ,
from Kate Crane.

I will join the SimonSaysStampChallenge with this tag as well. The theme there is still "anything goes".

" the secret to living well is
eat half.
walk double,
laugh triple
and love without measure."

Sounds ok .
