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

B-card for a man/boy






I really love to make new folds!!
 This birthday card is for a friend who likes to fish. 
Had a stamp set at home so it was perfect for this purpose. 
I used paper with different structure and painted it white to fit into the stamp design. 
Heat embossed the fish at the bottom  so they became a border.
 You can fold the card in two different ways, see the top and bottom card!!

XO Kate

I will play in the following challenges:

Magnolia photo




Photo challenges at Pappersmarknad
I love the flowers and smell of Magnolia, you it´s spring when they come!
To the frame did I use a die cut from Tattered Lace dies. 
I use the green as background and red cardstock behind the punched heart made with
Heartbeat from Martha Stewart.
I´v color the rose with yellow watercolor, and the other with lace would you find here.
A littel piece of a willow twig and a lily are there to, and some stickles in the corner.

Happy or sad....




I use Lilleth from Delicious Doddles to express my mood. 
Every day I have pain and yet I try to be happy. 
So therefore, I chose to paint half her in a light color and the other side a little darker. 
It symbolizes my mood every day!
I corlor her with Faber Castell and place her in a die cut from Tattered Lace Dies.
I punched out two heart and spilt them in half.
My embellishment is stitches, stickles and flowers.
