My first Christmas card..this year!

 Hi all of you crafting people!
Today it is a very terribly sad and incomprehensible day in our beautiful and beloved country, Norway ♥.
Life has, once again, proved to be very unpredictable and unfair!
 My thoughts go to all those people who are touched  by this great tragedy, and I encourage you all to light a candle together with the whole world, and remind all the victims ♥!.
RIP♥
*
 Today I've a Christmas card to share with you..my first one this year!
I’ll try to add more and more Christmas cards to my collection, so I,for the first time ever, maybe will be ready BEFORE the holidays.  That will makes me feel so relieved because having my holiday cards ready will free me up to use those precious weeks before Christmas for other activities., or just use the time to be with everyone I love.!
Anyway..this beautiful image is from Sweet Pea Stamps-from our new artist Anna Marina's Art collection, and she's called "Franceska",
and you can find her HERE on sheet 2, Plate 160!:)
I've coloured the image with Copic's.
And..again I made it a Joy Fold card, and all of the DP are from residual paper..and I'm feeling soo good when I use these!:)
  

Flowers from WOC, and snowcrystals made with M.S punches!


The beauty herself!
 I really love this images from Anna Marina, and her original artwork is absolutely GORGEOUS and you can see it HERE at the Sweet Pea Stamps Store along with the other 3 images, or as a single one! 
*
I’m so happy to be able to add these to my collection – all ready for the holidays!:)
. Thank you for stopping by today, and all your very sweet comments!:)
Wish you a beautiful day..and Take good care of each other, and enjoy every day! 

Hugs from Ellen

Another new and beautiful Sweet Pea Stamp-"Captivated by Silence"

Hei på dere!:)
Håper dere har fått litt glede av solen de siste dagene!:) Her skinner solen endelig, så det er litt mer fristende å være ute nå, enn å sitte her på hobbyrommet;)
MEN, jeg har fått mange nye stempler, og da måtte jeg bare lage et kort med en gang!:)
Dette er fra Sweet Pea Stamp, og denne skjønnheten her heter "Captivated by Silence" og er laget av Anna Marine, og her finner du dette motivet, enten alene eller sammen med 3 andre skjønnheter!
*
Jeg falt helt for denne nydelige skapningen, og muligens det har med å gjøre at sommerfugler og roser er noe med det vakreste jeg vet!:)). 
Dette er laget etter skissen hos WOC,challenge (De fyller 1 år nå, så Happy Birthday!) og da ble det, (til en forandring fra mine Staffelikort og regulære;D), et "Joy fold card"! 
Dette kortet tilsvarer skissen, og disse skal det bli flere av, for det var både gøy og inspirerende å lage noe annet!:)). Merkelig hvordan man henger seg litt fast..i hvertfall gjør jeg det;)
Motivet er fargelagt med Prisma Premier Pencil's, og de vakre papirene er fra Maya Design!










 

Tusen takk for besøket, og alle koselige kommentarer jeg har fått!
Nå er det sommerværet som kaller, så jeg ønsker dere alle en solrik og koselig dag:).
