Allsorts - Snowflakes

I'm hosting the challenge at Allsorts this week and I thought that Snowflakes would be a fitting theme. Because we're closing in on Christmas AND my chorus Snowflake singers have our annual Christmas concert this weekend - one show this evening and one tomorrow.

So I made a gift tag in white with silver snowflakes and a purple bow to top it of. I hope you join in the challenge and have a lovely weekend!

Allsorts - Thank you

So sorry for being late with my post, but had the funeral for my mother-in-law this weekend and I thought the post was scheduled, but obviously not :(

So, though late, here's my contribution to Allsorts challenge this week and the theme is Thank You.

Allsorts - Glitter

Time for a Glitter challenge at Allsorts. I made a card with a gold mirror backing paper and a big golden bow. Glitter can be all sorts of sparkling things, but for this challenge not gems or pearls.

I hope you join our challenge, and I hope you have a nice weekend. Here in the north we have a bright sun shining on the frosty landscape this morning, and I'm gonna prepare for the christening of my grandson tomorrow, so life is good :)
Other challenges:

Crafty Catz - Anything goes
Polka doodles - Anything goes
Kort o Mania - Anything goes

Allsorts - colours of autumn

It's been a long time since I made a photo layout, but for this challenge at Allsorts - Autumn colours - I had to give it a go since the photos I chose already had the colours desired :). Distressed die cut leaves was all I needed, I'm not really a fan of the bulgy layout pages that makes closing the album nearly impossible. 
Top picture is my mum, her mum and my dad's mum (I can never get my head around the fact that you in English have the same name for them, we have a word for mother's mother and another word for father's mother, to avoid confusion). Bottom picture is my younger sister, one of my cousins and myself. 
Once again we are sponsored by Tattered Lace, this time with some amazing embossing folders, so good luck to you all!

Allsorts - blue and brown

This week at Allsorts we have a colour combo for you, and not just any colour combo, it's my absolut favourite - Blue and Brown! I distressed the background using a honey comb mask, added a die cut sentiment (made two layers to make it thicker) and added a bow and a piece of string. Easy and effectful!
We are sponsored by the Digistamp Boutique and they have so many adorable images to choose from, but this time I decided to have my tag very plain.

I'm trying to cure my cold at the moment, going to Holland with a collegue and two students tomorrow, we'll be gone the entire week, so I don't really need a sore throat and stuffed nose :(

Christmas Creatures

This week at Allsorts Tracy chose Christmas Creatures. So any creatures in Christmas surroundings will do. I used a LOTV-bear on a white embossed cardstock on red card base. Simple but rather effectful. For the hat and the sentiment I used Festive Berries Distress Ink.

Allsorts - Halloween

We're closing in on Halloween so naturally that is the challenge theme at Allsorts this week. I used a Tiddly Ink image and made a card in green and black. Not that we celebrate Halloween particularly in Sweden but spooky things are fun all the time :)

We are sponsored with two gorgeous stamps by Little Claire so good luck to you all.

Sweet stampin - Bingo (magic, witch, black)
