StampARTic December Challenge

Masking and stitching are to be included in the last challenge of the year at StampARTic.
As far as the ink and paint, everyone knows I'm like a monkey with a banana ;) Although I must say I'm quite proud of myself. But for the stitching, I always turn to my wonderful Stitch Master Peet.
I've made a birthday card for my niece who turns 17 on Saturday.

Happy Birthday Lenora!

Ett trykk - Trykkpressa December 2009

The December challenge at MY FAVORITE MAGAZINE is to make a card with this template: 30cm x 10cm - yes, metric (very scary, by the way).

Here's my entry to the December 09 Trykkpressa. I've made a birthday card for my mother...

The flower lifts with a nifty flap tucked into a slit on the patterned paper...

And here's my sketch...

Sukkersött #64 - to warm your soul...

Hope is the week's theme at Sukkersött. With yesterday's wind chill, I made this "bag" of hot cocoa mix for challenge #64.
And the back of the bag...

Sukkersött - Utfordring #63

Here's an entry for Sukkersött #63
I've decorated a jar for my homemade granola. It's for my sister Sylvia's birthday today. She's become a health nut during the past year or so. I've made her some granola that she can sprinkle on her oatmeal or layer into a parfait with some yogurt and fresh berries! I've used the purple/lilac colors in the spirit of Advent :)
Happy Birthday Yaya!!!


And the back of the tag...
