A birthdaycard for SDC 344.

Most people today have to stay at home. I think it is very hard not to have my usual liberty.
But , on the other hand it is nice to get more crafty time. Saying that, I feel so worried about my loved ones and therefor it is hard to even concentrate on being crafty. As if the spirit doesn`t join in.

I made this card thinking of my daughter stuck in wonderful New Zealand. Everything is closed and they (daughter and boyfriend) are desperate to find a place where they can spend the next couple of weeks until the worst part of the pandemic is over.
She will even celebrate her birthday down there
.
And then I have my parents in beautiful Sweden. Almost the one and only country that HAS NOT shut down schools and social living because they believe in another solution. I DO hope that my parents ( and of course all the other elderly and people at risk) will survive this act.

Anyway  - Stampotique has a new theme again - this time it is all about Birthday.

So this card is for our lovely Emilie in NZ (just somewhere outside Christchurch) , for my mom turning 81 in Sweden and for my father in law in Denmark turning 99 next month.

Stamp used = tree topper.

Wish you all the very best!

A nice day with creative fellows - workshop in Keispelt.


Working with water colors at the latest workshop for Mosaik Scrappers in our lovely "salle polyvalante" in Keispelt.
Jaine had prepared kits for us with water colors, pencils, paper and a canvas. And so the journey began...

After a couple of hours I had this picture in front of me.

For me it is about movement, going somewhere, looking for new sceneries and places.
In Swedish we say that we find a "smultronställe" - a place we love to go to , where you can pick sweet berries in the forest...
And you never know what to expect - like a box of chocolate - you never know what to you get :-)

All we need is love ! (?)


Back again.

Philippines is a beautiful country. VERY friendly people - it doesn`t matter if rich or poor. Stunning! And the nature - bounty beaches, volcanos, rice fields, coral reefs , whale sharks, turtles… and then the little Mao Meg - the tarsier !
A destination for everyone who enjoys travelling.

And back home - valentines day - as every year.

I made this page to join the latest challenge at SDC 341 where its all about the need of love.

Stamps used ; Angel and vintage bill.

Wanderlust 2020




.

Getting into the travel "mood" with this wall hanger.

I bought some lovely Lavinia stamps at the LuxExpo here last Saturday - Silhouette Thistle, Luna Buds and Mushrooms mini.
The text stamps are from Craft sensation and the fish from Gummiapan.

I really enjoyed getting the sewing machine out of the cupboard again!

Soon it`s time again.
Time to travel and enjoy the beauty of other countries and cultures.
I found this photo on Pinterest and I´m really looking forward to this scenery - the rice terraces of Banau and Batad.

SDC 335 - november


New month - new calendar page!

Stampotique designers Challenge no 335 is all about black and white together with another color. Because of the weather and the colors of the leaves - I chose brown ( or maybe "brownish").

I just LOVE the autumn colors - it is as if the trees show of in flowering - like the flowers in spring and summer time.

I used the stamp Relaxin` , some masks from Studio light , skeleton leaves from Sizzix and distress inks.

Wishing you all a beautiful November!
