Some easy tags

This is the second posting today. There is a posting on Christmasbags before this one.

Dette er andre innlegget i dag. Det ligger et innlegg om juleposer før dette innlegget.



These tags where laying  on my shelf drying so I finished them today. I always bring my Promarkers and stamped images with me when I have time and I end up coloring too many and don't know what to do with them all since I  am mostly  in a vintagemood. So I thought, why not make some easy tags? If there is one thing we have too little of is this house, it is birthdaycards for my daughters many friends. And to be honest, since i don 't know how much a sevenyearold appreciates a homemade card I usually give my cards away to people who appreciate some homemade stuff and makes simpler things for the kids.


She has got small blue diamonds on her shoes and diamondglaze in the middle of the flower to get some dimentions to it.

The heart is cut out of cardstock with a die I borrowed in the store I am a designer for, I guess it is an Accucut die. I then covered it with some paper, stamped some swirls and distressed the edges and glued on the image. They are superfast to make and quite fun too!

Disse har ligget på hyllen til tørk så jeg gjorde dem ferdig i dag. Jeg drar alltid med med Promarkerne mine og ferdigstemplete trykk når jeg er på farten og ender opp med å fargelegge alt for mange, for hva skal jeg gjøre med så mange når jeg er i vintage-stemmning omtrent hele tiden?
Så jeg fant ut at hvorfor ikke bruke dem til noen lettvinte tags. For er det en ting vi har for lite av her i huset så er det bursdagskort til alle mine døtres veninner. Nå er jeg ikke så sikker på i hvor stor grad en syvåring setter pris på et hjemmelaget kort så jeg pleier å gi de enkere variantene til unger og "gjemme" de mer avanserte kortene til mennesker jeg vet setter pris på et hjemmelaget kort.
Disse er enkle og kjappe å lage. Hjertet er kuttet ut av papp med det jeg tror er en -Accut die. Den er deretter belagt med litt pyntepapir som er distresset og stemplet med swirler.

Motivene er pyntet med diamanter i hatten og på skoene, samt litt Diamond Glaze på skoen på den ene taggen og inni blomsten på den andre.

A christmasbag - En julepose


Thank you so much for all the get well wishes I have recieved! I have really been needing it; I got rushed off to hospital in an ambulance on wednesday with heavy breathing problems. It was really scary to struggle so much to get air in and out of my lungs, feeling that I was going to chocke. I had for some time struggled with a flue (not the swineflu, but a cold flu) and the inside of my throat had now swelled up due to an infection   and was causing the breathingproblems.
It was a relief to see that the "system" really works when you really need it. Arriving at the hospital with sirenes on,  six doctors and nurses stood standbye to deal with me and an operating theatre was also on standbye. Luckily I did not need that.  In a few seconds they had put a needle in my veines and pumped me full of drugs that worked like a miracle. In about ten minutes  I could breathe more easily!

I am now home again. Had to take a small trip back to the doctor yesterday in a hurry because the problems occured again, but now I am hopefully getting better. I ought to with all these drugs I'm taking!






I magaged to sit down for some minutes today and make this Christmasbag. I am shaking quite a bit, probably some sideeffects on the drugs, so everything takes twice the time it usually does, but in a few days I will be back to my own calm self I hope! I hate being sick, I do not have time for that!

The flower is cut ouf from a Bosskut die. There are small bells hanging from the center.

The fastest card ever



I have been having the most horrible cardmaking abstinences these last days. My head wants to do a lot of cardmaking and my body is fighting the flu yet again. Being the second one in two months and still being a bit off after the first one, this one has really drained me for every last bit of energy. So this one is the fastest one ever. I just used the image that was laying on my desk from the last card, used the same colors, same roses and managed to finish the whole thing before I fell over totally exhausted! But still though I found it quite sweet if I am allowed to say so, but very simple!

It's fun though, how horribly hung up on cardmaking I can get, and I know I am not the only one out there. Now I'm going to take the rest of the evening off and the goal is to get so well that I can go to dancing on thursday. (I guess this is not the swineflu since I had that in august so I am not restricted to be at home for a week)
By the way, it seems that Norway is hit quite hard with this swineflu. On my kids school 30% of the kids are sick now and it seems that we have a higher mortalityrate with the swineflu than other countries in the world. They are trying to figure out why and people are queing up to get vaccinated and there was a small chaos in my doctors office today.

Dette er vel det kjappeste kortet noen gang fra min hånd. Det er noe med at når man for andre gang på to måneder ligger nede i influensa så orker man ikke stort, mens hodet fortsetter jo å produsere lyster til å lage kort. Så jeg karret meg ned på hobbyrommet, grep tak i det første og beste motivet som lå der og arkene som lå der fra før og simsalabim så var det ferdig! Nå sitter jeg i sengen igjen og kaldsvetter og satser på at jeg er oppegående igjen på torsdag så jeg kan være med på dansingen igjen. Er noe herk dette her, jeg har absolutt IKKE tid til dette her. For det første skulle jeg planlegge kortkurset mitt og for det andre har jeg ikke laget mer enn ETT julekort! Det er litt for lite!

Takk og pris for internet i det minste så jeg slipper å telle sauer!
