Knitting, knitting, knitting

On cold days it is good to wear something warm around the neck.
I have knitted some "neck warmers" for children.
The next one is now on my needles.

Cuttlebug Mania "Winter Wonderland"

Cuttlebug Mania is back after the Christmas break,
and our first challenge this year is: "Winter Wonderland".
We want you to make a project showing winter:
Nature, snow, ice, winter sports and so on.
Please take a look at our page
to se what the talented DT ladies have made.
As always there is also a great prize to win.
You have got two weeks to join in.

For my DT card I used:
White card stock for the card and the image;
Blue paper for the mat;
Cream and brown marbled card stock;
Stamp: Unknown 
(It's a Norwegian one. I don't remember the name);
Embossing folder: Tim Holz "Mini Tall Pines";
We R memory keepers "Nesting card dies" (2x).

I coloured the stamp and the pine trees
with water colour pencils.
I sponged the white space around the image
with blue distress ink.
To give the card a "frosty" look,
I added a little bit of silver glitter glue on and around the trees.

Nordsalten Hobbyklubb har en utfordring
der en skal vise hva en er best på.
Når det gjelder kort, liker jeg godt CAS,
og det er vel CAS kort jeg lager mest av.
Men denne gangen har jeg IKKE laget kort,
derimot noen julekurver.
Jeg bor i Sveits, og her er denne formen for julepynt ukjent.
Men jeg liker godt julekurver.
De minner meg om koselige juleverksteder hjemme og på skolen.

Og så er jeg så glad i min Cuttlebug,
dies og embossing folders som kan brukes
på ulike måter.

Disse julekurvene er laget med en die fra Marianne Design.
Selvfølgelig kunne jeg ha brukt disse små kurvene på et kort,
men nå fikk de pynte juletreet.

Jeg ønsker å delta her:

Happy 100th Birthday!

I think it is the first time I make a card for a 100th birthday.
The birthday is on New Years Eve,
but while we thought there will be many visitors on that day,
my husband and I decided to visit the old lady on Christmas Eve.
I am so glad we did!
This lady looks like a 70 year old woman.
And she can remember, of course from her childhood,
but also what happened last year and two weeks ago. Amazing.
I brought my guitar for our visit, and we sang Christmas Carols.
My husband read some Christmas poems
and the Christmas Gospel, Luke 2,1-20.
The old lady showed her joy. It was wonderful.
I made a combined Christmas and Birthday card.
And because I am fond of CAS,
I also made this one without much stash.
I used:
Red card stock;
Snippets of green papers and designer paper;
Spellbinders Poinsettia and scalloped oval dies;
Stamp: Rico design;
Embossing powder: Rayher "gold";
Rhine stone;
"Gold" pen and metallic ink;
Number: Artoz sticker.
