Amazing Norway




Roger & I had an amazing time in Norway, it is such a pretty country with lovely people.
On Saturday we went to Oslo and our first stop was Steffan's a large craft shop, it was crafting heaven. The photograph shows May Britt in the back ground shopping and our husband's very patiently sitting waiting for us. We also went to the Panduro shop in central Oslo and spent some more money, hehe!
The other photo is of May Britt & I at the Oslo Opera House which is a modern building made of marble, you are able to walk up the side of the building onto the roof, once at the top there is an amazing view of the city.
We would recommend a holiday to Norway and can't wait until we can go back next time in the winter so we can experience the snow.

Friendship


I've made this card for my friend Dani's birthday, she is such a special friend and so I wanted to make her a special card.
The images are by Panduro and coloured using Pro-markers. The poem I found on the internet. The design papers are Basic Grey and the embellishments from my stash.
This weekend we are off to North Yorkshire to visit family and so no crafting for me.

Stamptacular Sunday Challenge


This is the first time I have entered the challenge on Stamptacular Sunday. I have made another Father's day card following the fabulous sketch. I have kept the card fairly simple because the design paper is quite busy.
The image is by Panduro, they are just perfect for men's cards. I think the design papers are by Dovecraft but I'm not totally sure. Pro-markers have been used to colour my image.

Papertake Weekley Challenge


As I have four Father's day cards to make I thought I'd better make a start. I have used this week's sketch by Dawny on Papertake Weekley for this card.
The image is by Panduro and just perfect for Poppy to give to her step-dad as he is the barbeque king.
The papers I've used are from my scrap box so I can't remember the names. Image coloured using Pro-markers.

Another Hanglar


I've used last week's sketch on Sketch Saturday for this card. Unfortunately I was too late to enter into the challenge, but hey I like the card.
The image is by Hanglar from their Spring kit club, I so love their stamps. I'm so lucky that I have a very special friend who buys them on my behalf.
The design paper is Basic Grey but can't remember the name, sorry. The image is coloured using Pro-markers.
Hope everyone is enjoying the Bank Holiday weekend. Thanks for looking
