Happy 100th Birthday!

I think it is the first time I make a card for a 100th birthday.
The birthday is on New Years Eve,
but while we thought there will be many visitors on that day,
my husband and I decided to visit the old lady on Christmas Eve.
I am so glad we did!
This lady looks like a 70 year old woman.
And she can remember, of course from her childhood,
but also what happened last year and two weeks ago. Amazing.
I brought my guitar for our visit, and we sang Christmas Carols.
My husband read some Christmas poems
and the Christmas Gospel, Luke 2,1-20.
The old lady showed her joy. It was wonderful.
I made a combined Christmas and Birthday card.
And because I am fond of CAS,
I also made this one without much stash.
I used:
Red card stock;
Snippets of green papers and designer paper;
Spellbinders Poinsettia and scalloped oval dies;
Stamp: Rico design;
Embossing powder: Rayher "gold";
Rhine stone;
"Gold" pen and metallic ink;
Number: Artoz sticker.

Koffermarkt / Suitcase Market

During the last weeks I was busy
with the Christmas marked here in our town.
It was a "Koffermarkt", a "Suitcase Marked"
where you may sell all sorts of hand crafted, self made things
from an oldfashioned suitcase.
This is a form for market that is very popular
 in Germany and in Switzerland, where I live.
This time we got a whole table each of us to present our stuff,
so it was rather a sort of luxury.
And of course the old suitcase had to be there.
In my suitcase I had my cards,
most of them Christmas cards.

For this one I used:
Cream card stock for the card and the mat;
Scrap papers, diferent colours;
Stencil: Holly (Penny Black);
Holly wreath die (Marianne Design);
For the 3 hanging hearts: Nellie Snellen die;
Different die cut left overs from other dies;
Brown distress ink;
Glitter glue;
red and green pens.

And here are some pictures from the marked:

Dieser Pullover darf morgen mit auf den Koffermarkt.
Ich denke, die Grösse ist etwa 4-6 Jahre.
Diesmal habe ich ein bisschen locker gestrickt,
und darum weiss ich die Grösse nicht ganz genau.
Aber irgend einem Kind wird er ganz sicher passen.

Litt mer pjoning

I dag viser jeg tre par pulsvarmere
som jeg har pjonet i Drops Alpaca.
Alle er tenkt til damer, litt forskjellig størrelse.
Det lyse settet er ikke helt hvitt, slik som på bildet.
Det er mer kremfarget.

Hals til barn / Children's Cowl

Det nærmer seg marked,
og i den anledning strikker jeg litt.
Jeg har prøvd meg på å strikke hals til barn.
Her er to stykker strikket i Drops Karisma.
Mønsteret har jeg funnet her,
designet av Heklelinda.

CAS Match Box

I think I am in a sort of "Poinsettia Mode" now before Christmas.
Today I decorated a match box,
of course in the CAS style,
using this beautiful dies from Spellbinders.
The match box is not very big,
so I used only two of the dies.
I also used:
Snippets of red, creme and green card stock;
"Gold" metallic ink, pen and glitter glue.

Mini Christmas Candy Boxes

Last week I bought some small boxes.
Now I have decorated them for Christmas candies
(or something else).
On the front side there is a poinsettia,
made with the beautiful Poinsettia dies from Spellbinders.
The colour of the flower is cream, not white.
On the back side I mounted a plate to write on,
also a Spellbinders die.

Pjona votter, Handschuhe, Mittens

Årets "Koffermarkt" i byen vår nærmer seg med stormskritt.
Dette er en form for marked
som har slått godt an i tysktalende land.
Man tar en gammel koffert, helst VELDIG gammel,
dekorerer den etter årstid og tema for markedet,
og så blir all slags selvlagede varer solgt fra den kofferten.
Denne gangen er det selvsagt JUL som er tema.
Kofferten min er enda ikke ferdig pyntet,
men innholdet vokser, sakte men sikkert.
Allerede om en uke må alt være klappet og klart.
Da er det Koffermarkt lørdag og søndag.

Jeg har pjonet noen votter som skal bli med på markedet.
Jeg har egentlig liten erfaring i å pjone,
men i fjor fikk jeg iallfall solgt en del av vottene jeg hadde med.

I år har jeg brukt Drops Alpaca.
Noen av vottene er lett tovet for hånd.
Ellers bare børster jeg dem både innvendig og utvendig.

Her er et lite knippe:

Christmas Colours

White card stock;
