Roses in August

Hope you had a fab weekend and are ready for a new week. We've been visiting relatives and were spoilt with lots of good food and good company. So I'm feeling very lazy today, in a good way! *Waving to mum, Bengt, Lasse and Karyn!*

I think I'm ready to enter a challenge where you're supposed to create 100 projects without buying anything new. It will be tough and I will be cheating by buying adhesives when needed as I don't hoard them. It will be fun to see how many projects I can make with my stash before I end up drooling in a shop, maybe I'll end with only 10, he he! So this is my first one! Here's the link to Helen.

Stamps: Magnolia image and words, Inkadinkado butterfly scroll (clear embossed)
Colouring: Derwent watercolours, Sakura pens for highlights
Decor paper: JB
Tools: MS border punch, QK leaf and corner dies, Cuttlebug flower die
And: KC bling half pearls, Hobby och Hantverk ticket covered with acetate from a package, Perfect Pearls, Distress Inks, Dimensional Magic for hair and shoes, ribbon from my stash

ABC Challenge: August

Sir Stampalot Challenge: Bring on the bling

Just Magnolia: Acetate

Friday Sketchers: fab sketch by Carole

Thanks for visiting and for your much appreciated comments!



  1. Vad kul att du är med och skapar 100 alster...det kommer säkert att gå bra! Men man får väl blunda inför vissa nya saker som kommer ut under hö får tänka att det kommer nya fina saker hela tiden...:)

    Vad fina kort du gör förresten och din symaskins huva är ju underbart fin!

    Ha en fin måndag!
