Happy mother's day to all mothers and especially to all single mothers out there. I'm not one of them, but I have a husband that sometimes travels a lot, and that has given me an enourmous respect for single parents! It's really not an easy job to take care of kids all on your own, even though you have the sweetest, nicest kids in the world (which of course all parents have! ;)). You do a fantastic job! I hope you all get the attention you deserve today and enjoy the day!
I'll enter this card for the following challenges:
Mojo Monday - Sketch 177
Kort o Mania - Utfordring 33 Ikke 6x6
My time to craft - Challenge 127 Hearts and flowers
Cute Card Thursday - Challenge 151 Hearts and flowers
Paper Play Challenges - 11w6 Hearts and flowers but not Valentine
A Spoonful of Sugar - Challenge 138 Let's see some love

Thursday evening there were seven of us (big and small) crafting at my table. It was really nice, but when everybody had left there were still just a few pieces of paper lying at my workspace. I've got a tendency to focus on everything but my own stuff on these nights! :) But once the house was quiet I got to finish something. Not even close to what I originally had thought of, but fun anyways! And as a funny coincidence, when I browsed through the latest blog newsfeed before I went to bed, I noticed that I wasn't the only one that had made a post-it easel. Must be going around! :)

The last few days I've been reorganizing my piles of design papers and cleaned up heaps of stuff that tends to grow out of the boxes where they belong! An extencive job, but it felt so great afterwards. And I found so much stuff I almost forgot I had! These dp's for instance. They made me so happy so I thougt they would be good for the challenge at Cute Card Thursday - Banish the blues. And I've let myself be inspired by the sketch at Friday Sketchers #140. Now I can go to bed with a big smile on my face, quite pleased with my efforts! ☺

Even though it's not my best work, I'll enter this at the challenges WOC - #16 Love is.. and - NSHK - #23 Valentines.
This card wasn't supposed to have flowers at all. And it was supposed to have a sentiment. But I didn't have the sentiment I wanted, so I thought that it couldn't be so difficult to use alphabet stamps! Well, it turned out to be a lot harder than I thought, so to make a long story short: I went with the flowers and ribbon instead.

My brilliant clever daughter has done it again! This time she was chosen as this months Star Agent at Messy's Mini Missions with this card. That means she gets to be a guest designer next month. And she is so looking forward to it! And you bet her mom's proud! :) We are now discussing whether or not she should get her own blog to show off her prizes and badges. But until then they get to decorate mommy's blog.
Trekker et lodd i utfordringene hos That's just so cute og Sketchy Colors, som begge kjører fargekombinasjonene blått, brunt og hvitt.
Yup, that's me.. Chronical procrastinator. Everything has to happen at the last minute. This time I'll have to blame it on that the past week has been crazy busy and the project I chose took no less than three days to finish. Not because it was so hard to do, but because I just didn't have the time to sit down long enough to finish it! But at least it's done now so I can check off "book box" from my list of projects I have to try. And of course I have to give credits to Wenche for sharing an incredibly good tutorial on this one.
I'll draw a ticket for the challenges at That's just so cute and Sketchy Colors. They're both running the color combo blue, brown and white.
