Confession Time


Ikke på norsk denne gangen - er for lat. Sorry


I admit it - I'm a sucker for attention. Small pieces of fame and glory makes me smile. I have smiled today. I discovered that Kaisercraft featured one of my layouts on their blog.

I have another confession: I don't make layouts or cards to become famous, I do it for fun, because I like it and to document our family life. But I don't mind that others like my work, too.

Oh, there is a third confession: I love challenges. They make me to try out new stuff and tecniques and sometimes even step out of my comfort zone.


This card, made for the ongoing Caardvark Challenge (ribbons) is in my comfort zone, but made me try something new: to make a ribbon flower. I have never tried it before, but it was quite easy. All you need is a ribbon, a needle and some thread. Did you notice the tag? I bought an outfit a while ago, and kept the tag - I thought it was perfect for a card. I'm hoarding all kinds of NiceToHave stuff (the forth confession?)... The greating is French and says "But where is it, the sun?".

Have a great weekend, everybody!
