Birthday card for a co-worker that turns 67!

I made this card for one of my co-workers that turn 67years old tomorrow friday!
I finaly got to use my lovely paper pad with asian themed papers. I think it fits well to a grown man and his birthday card. I put on bling in the middle of the flowers and on the top and bottoms.
The card fits the challenge on CropStop with bling and shimmer. You can find this challenge on Heidi's blog.

A gift for a friend

I made this card, and altered a matchbox and a used toilet rollholder to make the gift. I'm rather pleased with the end result.

So second part of the gift for my friend. A matchbox that match the card and candlewrapping that I have made. On the Cropstop Summer Blog hop challenge that Dalis have you have to make something with a sun on. So I have put a favourite sun stamp on the matchbox.

"Celebrate Summer" Blog Hop! Inspired by nature

 I have not been making cards for the last 7-8 months because I have been working hard on my last year of 4 on school. That makes for one big list of cards that I ought to have made. This is one of them that I made 5 minuttes ago.
Today I got a set of stickers in the mail that I bougth just for fun. They are based on old french fabric patterns and are just lovely! And when I looked at the lovely bee, I though of the CropStop Blog hop challenge that I found at Michelle's blog. Inspired by nature.
 On the inside of the card I did it quiet and just stamped the same stamp 4 times to make a pattern.
I used the same stamp on the back of the card and on the envelope. So now I have to write the card and pop it in the mail tomorrow!

"Celebrate Summer" Blog Hop! Under the sea

 On friday a friend did me a favor and did not want anything in return. So inspired by the Cropstop Blog hop I made this matchbox and candle decorations.
 Rosemary's challenge is under the sea, and I found some paper that works like magic for under the sea. The wrapping around the candles is a used toilett paper roll, that fit well for the candles. The dolphin stamps are from an English stamp collection called Tanda Stamps.
I used some masking on the turtle and blue dolphin to get the 3D feeling on the matchbox.
I hope my friend will like the gift, as she and her family are going on a holliday to the coast next week.

"Celebrate Summer" Blog Hop! Think Pink

 Crop Stop have a Celebrate Summer Blog Hop. I started on the first stop and found Vicki's challenge that is to think pink!
A friend is expecting a girl next week, so I jumped to the challenge and made a pink baby card.
The text is in norwegian and say "A little princess"
 On the inside of the card I used some white rubbons that I have had for ages, and a stamp from Joanna Sheen.
 I used another baby stamp from Joanna Sheen on the back and on the envelope.
So now it is just to wait for the baby to be born. She will have 5 older sisters!
