About me

Mitt foto
I am a creative mother of two and grandmother of four wonderful kids. I like to create with the grandchildren so they learn to play without toys. Have always drew, painted and stitched. Like to reuse old things. Maybe a chair gets a new style or a few plates becomes a cookie dish. So create cards and paintings fit me. Lives in Sweden, Karlstad

Saturday Spotlight Designer, that´s me......

Got a question about being Saturday Spotlight Designer at  The Stamping Chef 
 and I answered proudly, YES of course!!  
Here is what I created for the occasion....





I did not know how I would do the image justice, but it got me thinking about slumber party when you have friends who stay overnight and you laugh and have fun together. 
You need a bed and a bunch of pillows for a party ....

I have use the image PJ Party, you find it here
I have color her with Tombows and Spectrum Noir. I have use dies from Memory Box, ribbon, bow, flowers and lace as my embellies.

Thank´s to The Stamping Chef  for letting me be Saturday Spotlight Designer!!

Have a lovely day and thank you for stopping by my blog!!

European Scrap Battle & Tournament....

We were 128 who participated in the first challenge and should become 64 to Round 2. 
When the poll was started and you could see all the contributions I did not believe for a moment that it was possible to move on to round 2 with my card ... 
but I did It !!
Round 2 here I come.....
The first challenge was to create a card based on this webpage

I made a very simple card and sometimes it is enough!!

I try in the following challenges:
Addicted To Stamps  Ch#60 Photo Inspiration with a Twist Option 1  4-9  5

Guest Designer at Fairytale Challenge

The theme for this challenge are something round, old and gemstone!




I'm so proud that they chose me as GDT at Fairy Tale Challenge. 
In 3 months I'll be with and inspire with my creations. 
For this card I used the image from Toread called "Comage" and colored with Spectrum Noir. 
The theme is round, old and gemstone! 
Took a doily and a circle then I added stones at them, the flowers are certainly 10 years old. 
Some leaves and ribbons are my other embellishments. 
Became a simple card but is still satisfied with the creation. 
Hope you come over and participate in the challenge Fairytale Challenge

Take Care
Hugs Kate
