{Bestillingskort - bryllupsdag}

A friend called me some days ago and asked me to make a card for her parents anniversary. They had been married 40 years (one year less than my parents). It was short notice, only a day so I made a clean and simple card, with colors she asked for. I hope they got it in the mail in time. The card is made with Wisteria papers from BG. Here's the front.

{A card for my parents wedding day celebration}

My parents have been married for 41 years today, so to celebrate their anniversary and my fathers birthday - I made this card for them. Along I brought a cake and some port wine :). They were very satisfied :). The card is made with a sweet image from the WoJ summer stamp kit. It's acutually the best kit I've ever received!!! I liked all the images. The paper is Making Memories (Valentines line). Other than that I've used punch from Martha Stewart and Stampin' Up, Prima Say it in crystals, QK cookie cutter (heart), promarkers and Copic sketch markers to color in the image. The sentiment is from Norsk Stempelblad AS.

Close up of the image (isn't she adorable?):

17. mai! {17th of May}

Yesterday we celebrated our National Day here in Norway. It's a big happening. With children walking in parades in Oslo and every small city in the whole country. People wear nice clothes and national costume. The streets are filled with happy people with a flag in their hand. Yesterday we had a very lovely weather here in the South-East of Norway.
This second photo is my son with a toy.

And here he is with a flag and in his suit, just like his daddy! :)

Yet another card!

It has not been enough time to scrapbook lately. I don't have any new photos, eighter. I need to order new ones.... So here is yet another card from me. The sheep are clip outs, not stamps, but rather cute, don't you think. I've layered the one sitting on top of the other with 3D foam, it's not visible here in the photo. The text says: Congrats with the 'heartbreaker'. The small text says: A little prince. The patterned paper is Papirdesign. I like the norwegian text on the paper. I used my nesties here, as always...
