I used Martha Stewart doily lace punch around the edges. The tag with the word "kjærlighet" (which means "love") is made from a nestabilities dies. The text is from my own design.
Vi er jo heldige å få både morsdag og Valentinsdagen på samme søndag denne uken, så jeg har vridd og vrengt hjernen i et forsøk på å lage noe. Jeg ble veldig inspirert av magasinet Magnolia Ink's valentingegave og har laget /kopiert denne papirkoppen med sjokolade i. Jeg elsker å mikse rødt og rosa, synes det er kule farger som "nesten " ikke går an.
Kanten er laget med Martha Stewarts doily lace punch, merkelappen er laget med nestabilites dies og teksten er fra Snuppeline Design.

I struggled so hard to make something out of this stamp from Whipper Snapper. I have had it for years without finding the proper use of it unlike so many others. But yesterday it all came together and the result is the one above.
I felt that today was the right day to make an atc again. It has been a long time since I last did it. So, with the images from Itkupilli and Lisas Altered Art it became an atc that is called Tchernobyl. Seeing films from Tchernobyl so many years after is still scary. It all looks so normal in the way that the grass is still green and yet "death" is lurking in the very soil you walk on, the air you breathe in, and the water you drink. How easy isn't it to believe that is is all "over" and that you are safe. Many have returned to their homes without having any option to do otherwise and it is this feeling of death lurking in the background of what seems to normal I wanted to catch.

Now she is soon turning eight! She is tall, strong, very wise and strongwilled and we feel how the memories from all those years ago slowely is starting to heal. It has taken time, but things like that always will take time.
Soon they are just memories and pictures and they don't stir up floods of tears like they did before.
