Altering a swether

My son got this handknitted sweater some years ago. He have not used it much as he think it is soo booring. (and I agre)
So I took it out today and stitched some flowers and stems on it, and croched a scallped flower that I stitched on with some white tread. Now I like it much better. My son is no flowerlover, so I'm going to pass it on to the 2 year old girl next door. I hope that she likes it.

Scetchy Colors Challenge #11

In this challenge on Scetchy Colors you have to use the colors light green, dark green and pink. I was playing in my scraproom and made this Påske decoration. Going to be nice for easter. I'm planning on having it on one of my kitchen kabinets for the easter. (Påske is the Norwegian word for Easter)
I used Gypsy Font for the letters. I welded the shadows and cut out shadow and words in the same light green colour. I used Rangers Pine needles distress ink to colour the shadow dark. The bird is from Storybook. It is sooo cute!

challenge "5 Flower Power Crop Stop

This week the challenge on Crop Stop was to make a 3D flower. I made several loveflowers for Valentine. In norwegian lollipops are called Kjærligheter, and kjærlighet is also the norwegian word for Love. So I made loveflowers. I made bouquets with 3 for my children, and cellophan wrapped one and one as small gifts to spread around. Here is a closeup of one of the bouquets.
Not a good pic but all the loveflowers are in the picture.

Challenge from CropStop Elf door

The challenge at Cropstop was to make an elfdoor with a elf inside the door. I made the door, but was never able to catch the elf! It was there when the camera was of, but was missing everytime the camera was on. So I only bring the picture of the front of the card.
