Ally's Angels DT-Challenge #53 X-mas Tag

Hello Hello,

New challenge at Ally's Angels 😀 and as always:

Holiday season kicks off soon!
 While your child’s preference for celebrating Christmas may change with age,
the magic does not have to. Re-imagining and introducing new traditions
into your holidays can make each holiday season feel wondrous 
and like the first one for them, no matter how old they get.
I've always used to send Christmas cards to family and friends, 
but during the last years I've been more and more lazy, and used 
the phone instead.  This year I've promised myself to gear up and go back to old traditions - sending more Christmas cards. They're so cozy to get.
So for this challenge I've made, not a Christmas card - but a Christmas tag 
to get you inspired ..  Hope it works 😉

This is what you can win if you're lucky :

 Happy crafting  &
Happy Christmas and Best Wishes for 2022

Ally's Angels DT-Challenge #48 Triple Fold card

Hello everyone!

 It's time for a new challenge at Ally's Angels.

The challenge starts today and ends at  Sunday, 8 August 2021

This was an order card that I had to make in a hurry. I was commissioned to make something for a lady who was going to retire. Previously, she worked as a nurse and a little in psychiatry, she is active and has several interests such as sewing, knitting, leather skins and cottage life. All these elements I should try to include on this card.  Here's what I ended up with:

I made a Triple Fold Card, using KennyK's beautiful stamp Naughty Nurse,
which I colored with my Copic markers. The numbers are dies from Brenda Walton.
When you open the card, it looks like this on one side. 

... and the other side looks like this. 


The winner of this Challenge will get this lovely prize:

 Now I look forward to seeing your contribution to our challenge. 
Happy crafting!
I wish you a joyful weekend!

Tag med selvlaget bakgrunn

 Hei hei,

Denne helgen er det online scrappetreff, og jeg STOR-koser meg!
Litt hektisk, med to nattevakter på toppen av det hele -  
men sove kan en gjøre når en blir gammel  😃
Det jeg vil vise dere nå er en tag hvor jeg har laget bakgrunnen selv.
En av utfordringene på treffet er nemlig selvlaget bakgrunn.
For dere som kjenner meg, vet dere at jeg er særdeles glad i KennyK sine stempel (disse er dessverre ikke lengre i handelen, men jeg fikk mange før Kenny sluttet å tegne disse...så jeg har de ofte framme og bruker de rett som det er.)
Til tagen har jeg benyttet stempelet "Super Mom". Dette har jeg fargelagt  ved hjelp av Copic tusjer. I tillegg har jeg satt på et par tekst striper fra Tim Holtz.
Tekstene "Din dag" og Gratulerer" er embosset.
Til slutt monterte jeg på noen micro-perler i off-white, blå og sort.

 Med denne tagen deltar jeg hos 
Nordsalten-hobbyklubb  #193 Lag din egen bakgrunn 
Creative Artiste #69th Challenge
 Morgan's Art World   Challenge #3
 Love to scrap  LTSVB#143

Ha en fortsatt fin dag.

Ally's Angels DT-Challenge #44 "Tulip card"

Hei alle sammen!!!   

Denne gang blogger jeg for Ally's Angels

Temaet er :  Alt går.
Utfordringen starter nå, og vil vare fram til  08.april.

Fin premie venter på en heldig vinner:
 Mitt bidrag til utfordringen er et bestillingskort til ei dame som fylte 70 år i går. Hun har en stor kjærlighet til blomster, - og spesielt tulipaner. Elsker vårblomstringen i Holland, så da ble dette resulatet jeg endte opp med. 


Håper dette ga deg litt inspirasjon til å være med på utfordringen vår. 
Måtte alle få en fin og Covid-19 fri vår 💖
