Just a card....

Good morning! It's been a while since my last post... I don't really feel much like blogging lately. Don't know what it is... I guess I just feel like I don't have anything to say/write about, and second there is soooo many nice blogs to read out there, so I spend a lot of time reading other blogs....

I haven't done much card making lately either. Only one card the last couple of weeks... where did my mojo go?? For the firs time in, like, forever I've made a card that isn't for a challenge. A while ago I saw a really cool flower digi stamp somewhere. I can't remember where, and I couldn't find it again, so I decided to draw my own flowers resembling what I think those flowers in the digi looked like....
I've used my ProMarkers to colour them in with. The flower panel is mounted on 3d foam.
I also wanted to try to make my own flower embellishment. I used a circle punch to punch out a few circles from an old book. I then tore off the edges to get different sized circles and also to get a rougher edge. I crumpled the circles and then added a bit of colour with a felt tip pen. Then I layered them and fastened them with a golden brad. After I had fastened them together I spritzed them with water and then crumpled the whole thing together and left it to dry. The water also made the felt tip run a bit and therefore softened the colour. I think the flower turned out ok, and it was good fun making it.
Well, I better go and do a bit of dusting and grocery shopping... my inlaws are coming to stay for the weekend, and also spend 17th of May (Norways national day) with us. The girls are all excited to see them again, and can't wait for them to arrive.

Det var fint kort du hadde laget, Tonje:) Du får kose deg med besøk du får! Kos dere på 17.mai.

Man får det sånn inne i mellom. BLoggtørke er vår "writers block" ;)
Jeg har bestemt meg for å bare blogge når jeg har LYST. Det skal jo være koselig også. Håper dere får en fantastisk 17mai.

"Bare" et kort...jeg syns det var nydelig!
Ja det med blogging går litt opp og ned hos meg også. Føler liksom meg så tom til tider... Men heldigvis kan vi blogge eller ta pauser nå vi vil:-)
Ønsker deg og dine en riktig god 17. mai!

Bloggtørken kommer og går her også.
Men vi må jo ikke skrive noe hele tiden. Det skal jo være lystbetont og gøy. Nå har du laget et fint kort igjen. Synes du er flink som greier å finne på nye motiver stadig vekk.
Nå kan du vise ungene bilder av fuglene som har flyttet inn. De er på bloggen min. Håper vi får tatt noen flere bilder etterhvert.

Ha en strålende 17 mai feiring.
Klem fra Mofma og Mojm.

If you wouldn't have told me you drew those flowers, I would have thought they were a stamp! Super cute card, Tonje!
