2015 - ett år med glädje och sorg

Hej!

Det har inte blivit mycket bloggande på sistone, haft fullt upp och slutet av 2015 var inte det jag hade väntat.

2015 började med att sonen föddes 6 januari, en  helt underbar start på året och även om det var fullt upp så var det mysigt. Hann med semester i Tjeckien som vanligt med besök hos mannens familj. Sedan har jag jobbat hela hösten och det var skönt som omväxling, sonen och pappan hängde hemma och hade fullt upp.

I början av november hände det man inte trodde skulle hända, pappa dog helt oväntat och världen hamnade upp och ner. Det har varit mycket jobb med allt pappersarbete, städa ut lägenheten och ordna upp det ekonomiska. Begravningen i början av december var en tung dag men skönt att ha familjen som stöd, de har varit ovärderliga och även mina vänner.

Så ett år med mycket glädje och även sorg, men nu är det 2016 och hoppas på ett bättre år med mer glädje. Vi har firat sonens första födelsedag och det bästa var att riva bort papper från presenterna. =)

Hoppas komma igång med pysslande igen, tagit en paus från ett designteam och ett har tagit avsked, så nu blir det bara födelsedagskort och annat som görs lite snabbt när jag hittar igen saker. =)

Det var lite uppdatering om min vardag, är föräldraledig nu hela våren och det är rätt trevligt, vi har överlevt första magsjukan också.

Smudgy Antics Midway reminder for December's challenge

Time for the last post at Smudgy Antics for us in the DT, since the challenge is closing down in the end of December! 

As usual it's Anything goes and if you want to add a twist, use Creepmas as your theme! =)

I did some recycling, we went to After Work and had hamburgers last Friday, so I saved the plastic decorations from the burgers and made Christmas decorations instead. =)

So here are one not so usual Christmas character and the text "God Jul" that means Merry Christmas in swedish! Will add more pics later of the other decorations whenI get some better lightning! =)

The Vampire Bunny got to make an apparence in green and red this time! =) Flanked by my "God Jul" signs he's taken place in the orchid on the windowsill! =)

Don't forget that you have to use a Smeared Ink rubber stamp or digital stamp to enter our challenge, otherwise you're not in the draw for a prize! =)

Smudgy Antics December challenge

It's time for the last challenge at Smudgy Antics for this year and since the challenge blog is closing due to few entries this will sadly be the last challenge! 

As usual it's Anything Goes with a twist of Creepmas, so make this really creepy if you can and don't forget that you have to use a Smeared Ink image, digital or rubber to enter this challenge!

I used the little creeper MiSk for my Creepmas card and colored with my promarkers, the clothing got a candy cane look and the bow a nice green tone. =) Blue and white hair looked good too! =)

For the background I used a brown cs + scraps from the drippy go punch. Then I added this onto a creepy christmas paper and finally a red cs as the cardbase. =) Almost forgot, added a half pearl to one of the eyes as a creepy detail. =)

Hope you will join in on this last challenge!

Smeared Ink November challenge Anything Goes + a twist

A new challenge for Smeared Ink starts today at Smudgy Antics! As usual it's Anything Goes with the optional twist of "Metal Madness"! =)

I used three different images this time: It's about time pocketwatch, Specimen jar and label from The Specimen Jar rubber stamp set.

All the images are colored with promarkers + a silver gel pen for the lid and the watches. Added some poisonous fumes in the jar and outside. For the labtable I used tinfoil to add a little more metal to my card! =) The background is a scrap paper with a faint pattern and I used gray cardstock for the card base. The clock on the table is raised up with 3D pillows.

So come and join in and remember that you have to use a Smeared Ink digital or rubber image on your project! =)

Smudgy Antics Midway reminder - Anything Goes with a twist

Time for the midway reminder for our Smudgy Antics Anything Goes challenge, with the optional twist of Ghosts and Ghouls! =)

I made a  wallhanging with Toy and Kingston, in a scary forest, or that was my intention! =)

First I colored all the images with my promarkers, then let them dry and cut them all out with my scissors. Added a half pearl to Kingston's eye and  raised him up on 3D pillows + one of  Toy too. 
Then I went to look for paper, didn't end up with the first ones but found one in a pack that I used to make threes of.
Also found a Graphics 45 paper with a nice sign that looked perfect together with Toy x 3 and Kingston. =)

For the last touch I used my Drippy Goo punch that I got for my birthday, finally it's mine! =)

Scanned the wall hanging so not sure if the 3D effect is visible but it looks good to me!

Don't forget to join our challenge and that you must use a Smeared Ink image, digital or rubber + link back to our challenge and to your blogpost and not only your blog's address. =)



Forgot to tell you about the sale, just go to Smeared Ink and you will find a lot of fantastic images! =)

Smudgy Antics October challenge - Anything Goes with a twist

Time for Octobers challenge at Smudgy Antics and as usual Anything Goes, there is a twist this time too and that is Ghosts and Ghouls! =)

As always, you have to use a Smeared Ink stamp to join this challenge, rubber or digital! =)

Now to the fun part, I used one of the new digis called Sorrow for my card and was inspired by a book I recently read. It's called Anna dressed in blood by Kendare Blake!

I colored Sorrow, as a ghost, in gray tones and added red for the eyes, tears and lips. Cut her out from the white paper and added her to a background with spiderwebb. Then added another red patterend paper just behind the spiderwebb, to make it stand out a little more. For the cardbase I used a black cs and then just a few small half pearls as a the final touch. 

Hope you will like our new challenge and come and join in! =)
