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

Something new....

Imagine what a meeting might lead to!! 
Was in the drawing of a pair of scrapbooking kits and did not win but one of the winners did not come forward and there was a new drawing, and then it was my name that won !! 
Yippee .... So I got home my package which was filled with goodies. 
It all ended with me being a new source of inspiration for Marmils blog.
 (This is a blog in Swedish)
This is all I won!!

And this is my first post at Marmil´s 
I made a candle card from the stuff I won!




My embellis are:
Die cut, ribbon, bow, star, snowflake, snowman, tree (bling) 
flowers, leaf, punchinella, organza and a bell.

Hope you like it!!

Snowman....


New challenge at Paradise of Stamps and the theme is "Christmas"
I use the image Snow Kissed from Art By Miran and color it with Tombows.
Use a pattern paper with snowflake as my background and for embellis 
have I use a handmake ribbon flower, ribbon, snowflake and some die cut.

This will be my last regular DT post, I take a little break when I need to recharge my batteries. Perhaps I'll make a card just for myself, otherwise I'm back in early February.
Much is happening here around me right now so I need some rest.

Hugs and take care
Kate


Winter....


New theme at Fairies in Time and it´s Winter.
I have use the image Dating Couple from Milk Coffe and color it with Polychromos.
This is an invitation to a winter party when we get together 
and drink some mulled wine and just cuddle together before Christmas.
Have only been using die cuts in various forms as decoration of this card.
Sometimes less is more!!

Hugs Kate
