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

Summer for me....

It's summer for me when we go to Italy on vacation!!



We go to the same vineyard each year, feels that one meets relatives. 
They have wonderful wines and food that takes one to the sky!!
 Made an inspirational card about a destination that I love. 
Have used material from Pappersmarknad.
The green and white cardstock will you find here.
The white did I use a die cut and a embossing folder with corks on, color it in red.
Green, white and red are the color of Italys flag!!!
On the picture can you see the hotel and the cork is from a bottle of wine I drink there.
As sentiment did I use the address and telephone number...
The crisp band will you find hererosered bouquet and the lily.
The little bag is a gift from them!

Have a great evening!!
