Ally's Angels DT-Challenge #67 Mother's Day 2023


Mother's Day cards were extra cute when we were little. Construction paper, stamps, and smudged spirals of crayon were treasured artifacts proclaiming our love for the "best mom ever." Most of the grown ups don't do this any longer... I had some years that I just called my mom, or bougth her a bouquet of flowers with no card at all.

In the beginning of the 2000 century I started my scrapbooking hobby, and from then I've made my mom a special card every year on her Mother's Day. I also use to give her a little gift and a bouquet of flowers. 

Here in Norway we selebrate Mother's Day every second sunday in February.              So on sunday I will bring her this card.    


It's the best way to say "I love you, mom!" 

Pair it with flowers for a special day your super mom will never forget.

Ally's Angels DT-Challenge #63 Wedding card

 Welcome to my blog


Hi everyone! 

It's Monday again, and I hope you had a wonderful weekend, filled with lots of joy.
October is a beautiful month. Nature is spectacular colored, and there is still enough daylight for proper mountain walks. The first frosty nights make the moors bear, the air is fresh and clear. The sun is low, and the shadows long.
- It's also a month with many weddings.
By the way... It's time for a new card share as a new challenge starts today 
The theme is as always :  Anything goes 
For this challenge I'll show you a wedding card...

If you read this blog, you know I'm a huge fan of KennyK stamps.
-So no surprise... This is a funny old stamp from KennyK.

Inside I've decorated with different texts from Kort og Godt. I've also used a beautiful lace I bought years ago. 

This is how it looks like for sending.

- and that is me for today. 
Hope you got inspired, and I'm looking forward to see your art.

I would like to submit my ticket to:

Take care everyone!
Love  DT - Mariann -

Ally's Angels DT-Challenge #62 Birthday card to a colleague

Hi dear followers and friends.

It's Sept. 10th, and that means a new Ally's Angels Challenge.
This time as always: Anything goes!

Head over to the challenge blog here for more details 
and to see the projects from the rest of the team.
This is my DT creation for our theme of Anything Goes. 
The image is an old stamp from KennyK.

Susan is a good friend and colleague, and when she turned 50 we desided to surprise her with a party in a local restaurant. She thought that no one knew, and that it was just her and one other colleague going out for dinner...
As she entered the restaurant the music started to play, and we all (13 colleagues) sang Happy Birthday. Wow she was surprised!

We had a great time together that evening!

 Here's the card I made for her from all of us colleagues in the Home health care.
Hope this card will inspire you to join us in Challenge #62
Looking forward to see your art.
Sharing this card in following challenges:

Ally's Angels DT-Challenge #61 Happy Birthday

Hello all my crafty friends!!

Welcome to our latest challenge at Ally's Angels where it's so simple that we say  Anything Goes.

I'm still around but haven't been making many cards recently as I've been busy with relaxing, LOL. I love to stay outside this time of year, so I  think there will be more time for scrapping when it's getting colder.

For this challenge I've made a birthday card  to a sweet little girl. 

- Hope to inspire you -

Thanks for stopping by - I'm looking forward to seeing your cool artworks.
Wish you all a good autumn and a very happy scrapping as well.

- DT Mariann -
