Et skikkelig jente roooosa kort!!:))

Hei hei!:)
Her kommer det visst enten ikke noe på noen dager, for så plutselig å dukke opp med flere innlegg på samme dag, hihi.
Jeg har sittet og kost meg med å lage et bursdagkort til ei lita nydelig jente, på 5 år. Og der er det en farge som gjelder..og det er Rooosa!!:))
Dette motivet, fra Sweet Pea Stamp, heter "Fairie Princess", og henne finner du HER, som singel, eller sammen med 3 andre skjønne motiver her, på sheet 13-plate 152!:)
Jeg har også brukt den flotte sketchen over hos WOC, laget av Bev.

 Den lille snuppa er en liten rosa prinsesse, så da passet dette motivet, rosa blomstene og disse papirene midt i blinken;)

 Motivet er fargelagt med Copic's, og papirene er fra Panduro.

 "Make a wish":). De nydelige blomstene er fra WOC.  
Sommerfuglen er punchet med en punch jeg har fått i gave, og som jeg er blitt såå glad i!!:)
Sommerfuglene har også  fått Liquid Pearls Opal White på seg.

 Ja, da ville ikke mitt kamera mer, så jeg måtte gå over til et eldre et! Men men..her er i hvertfall innsiden, og den er, som vanlig, lik som forsiden:). Og..jammen snek det seg inn et par tag'er her også, hihi. Disse er punchet ut med Marianne Design dies

. og dette "Magi" stempelet, fra Stempelglede, er jo også en av mine favoritter, samtidig som det passet så fint til den lille " prinsessen med ønskestaven" som skal ha kortet!:)
Og baksiden..også med en tag;))). 
Disse papirene har ligget..og ligget i et skap, uten at det har fristet meg å bruke dem, men nå derimot som sommeren er her, da så de på meg, og sa.."bruk meg..bruk meg..det er SOMMER"!!:))

Så da vil jeg få ønske dere alle en kjeeempeflott sommerdag, med masse SOL og GLEDE!:)
Tusen takk for alle koselige kommentarer, og besøk fra dere!
Jeg blir helt varm om hjertet, og koser meg med å lese dem!

Take good care!

Vintage eske med Pion !:)



Hei hei alle sammen!:)
Innleggene blir ikke lange nå som sommervarmen har kommet hit, men et besøk på hobbyrommet har det blitt da;).
Resulatet ble denne gave esken! Den har jeg brukt Pion papir på, creme og gammelrosa Bazill:)

 Punchet en kant rundt på lokket, og motivet er også fra Pion Design, samme som ordene "Drøm om morgendagen...". Sommerfulgene er også fra klippearket.
Jeg har brukt papir fra serien  "Minnenas Atelje"-Ros og Rosenhav♥, og e er enda vakrere i virkeligheten, enn på bilde!:)
Blomstene er, som vanlig, fra WOC:). Den søte lille poselen dukken er fra Tim H.

 Bunnen og lokket:). Alle deler har fått paneler med Bazill, og papir fra klippearket til Pion Design.
Stempel teksten inne i bunnen er fra Heartfelt  design.
Teksten var liiitt lang, så jeg har klippet den opp, og satt det sammen som du ser på bildet her:)

 Liitt nærmere øyesyn på den skjønne porselen dukken, og de vakre blomstene!

 Her må jeg vise under esken også, for disse papirene er såå utrolig vakre, og jeg vil ikke skjule noen deler av dem!!:)) 
Mitt personlige stempel er stemplet på en "tag", fra et annet av Pion's- utklippsark.
Det var alt jeg hadde på hjertet i kveld, for nå skal jeg ta meg en inspirerende runde rundt hos dere!!:)
Ha en superduper kveld, og strålende soldag i morgen!!:)
