Baby and Bunny


Dette må være et av de søteste baby-stemplene ever! ♥ Maurie Manning tegner fantastiske illustrasjoner, småbarn, tenåringer og gamle mennesker ~ som ellers er vanskelig å finne så god kvalitet og variasjon av i stempelverden :) 

http://www.mosdigitalpencil.com/

This sweet baby image is from the fantastic artist Maurie Manning, if you're looking for awesome digistamps, go visit Mo's store :)

Top Tip: THIS is an image that I originally ruined completely.. as u can see ;) I really messed up the bunny, but luckily I had another printed out in the same size, so I painted n paperpieced it, and it looked even better! Just remember to think how to fix a 'ruined' image before throwing it away, like with a flower or other embellishment, or paperpiece :)

Birthday Cake Sassy


Ser at det snart er på tide med en blogcandy igjen! Nederst på siden min har jeg en sånn nedtellings-dings, og den forteller meg at det er bare 14 dager til bloggen min har bursdag! Rart å tenke på at det er hele 7 år siden! 

Har plukket ut 'noen' av mine kreasjoner opp gjennom årene ~ Stilen min og fargelegging teknikkene har forbedret seg veldig siden jeg begyndte å blogge i 2008 :)

Motivet på kortet mitt er fra Sassy Studio Designs, og noen av de første stemplene jeg fikk i digi-format, var fra faktisk derfra. Husker jeg digget de 'vampete' linjene, som var så annerledes enn Magnolia, House-Mouse og Penny Black stemplene jeg begyndte med ;) Det er forresten en Sassy bloghop og muligheter for freebies idag!!!
http://buysassystudiodesigns.blogspot.com

Sassy Studio's stamps are so fun to ink up! Got this lovely babe for free at their facebook group, I just LUV freebies ♥ Actually the Sassy stamps were among the first I got when I discovered digistamps! I plan on hopping along their 6years BD bloghop today! There's big chances of winning some more freebies ♥

Weird to think it's soon 7 years since I started blogging! My coloring skills and style of crafting has really changed over the years :) I do hope you'll come back in about 14 days to see what surprise blogcandy I will celebrate with! It will be yummy!
