Hello Cupcakes - Lili of the Valley

Hello Crafties,

A couple of weeks ago I got this freebie image Hello Cupcakes from Lili of the Valley on the Kit and Clowders Facebook page, and when I saw that Twisted Thursday at The Outlawz had a challenge with the twisted add of cupcakes I thought I would color this new cute freebie.

I really enjoyed coloring this image and the mojo just came to me while I was coloring her and just went with the flow. I really love how the whole card turned out. I think the colors match each other just perfectly.

Anyways, I will leave you with my take on the image and card for you to enjoy and maybe inspire someone out there.

Until next time ..................................... craft on!!!

Monday Greetings Challenge - Use colors Purple and Green - GCC082216

Hello Crafties,

Puh, another week is starting and this week will be busy. I have to organize and clean my whole house due to a tv-show is coming to our house and are re-doing my son's room. They are doing a whole new room for them and the boys have decided what they want and I have no clue what they are going to do in their room or what colors etc.

Anyhow, this weeks challenge was a though one. I started out coloring the image I had gotten, and suddenly something felt terribly wrong so I went to check on the theme for the week and there it was: "Use colors Purple and Green". So I had to start all over again, but luckily I only had colored the face, hair and flower so it wasn't so bad. The only challenge was to stick with the colors Purple and Green. I think and feel like I have done a good job, sometimes when you have an image and there is something on the image or behind it that you have no idea if it belongs to the image or if it's something completely different and doesn't belong to the image. Anyways, it is always tricky when you don't know what the artist itself means, but sometimes that could be a challenge on it's own to figure it out and make it your special detail.

Anyways, I will leave you with this weeks sponsor Crafty Sentiment and the image Scilla - Fairy that I have done for this weeks challenge. I hope you would come and join in on our weeks challenge. If you feel like you would like to be a Guest Designer, please don't hesitate to contact me or send me a comment saying that you are interesting.

Until next time ...................................... Craft on!!!

Monday Greetings Challenge - Tic Tac Toe GCC080816

Howdy Crafty Pardner,

It's time for another challenge here at the Monday Greetings and I, Liw, with the weird name is hosting it this week. Hope you all are enjoying some summer and that the weather is treating you a lot better than it is here in Sweden. I always get amazed on the people who present the weather, they are the only one that can be totally wrong giving the weather update and still keep their job. Go figure!! :)

It has been sunny, warm and nice days here but mostly it has been a bit odd weather. One day cloudy, the next sunny, following by rain or even thunder. Oh, I forgot hail, yup, we got hail a couple of weeks ago. Anyways, I am working all summer at a summer hotel so I am not so sad about the weather so to me it hasn't bothered me much in the way that I haven't been able to go to the beach etc.
This weeks challenge is Tic Tac Toe and you can choose either row to follow. My amazing DTs friends has done an amazing challenge yet again. I am so grateful to be surrounded by so talented ladies that amazes me each and every week with their craft. I hope I will see a lot of entries this week to see what you can come up with using the different rows to choose from.

So with further due I will leave you with the instructions on how to enter and who our sponsors are for this week. Good luck and hope to see some amazing cards this week.
Anyways........Until next time .... craft on.

Monday Greetings Challenge - Summer Recreation - GCC071816

Hello crafty peeps,

Here is yet another past post that hasn't been able to been posted in time, but I guess better late than never, right??

This week we had Lacy Sunshine as our weekly sponsor and the theme was Summer Recreation. I found this image  Susie Boo Beach Girl very much in deed in the spot for the theme. When I recall my own summer recreations when I was young I was always at the beach playing and bathing. I was like a fish in the water that didn't want to get up, even if my lips where blue and I was cold.

Anyways, I will leave you with my take on this image and theme and hope you enjoyed and got some inspiration for your future card when it comes to summer recreation.

Until next time ..................... craft on.

Add 3 of something

Hello again,

This time it's an entry for MorgansArt that I have done. The challenge is to add 3 of something and why not use the image 3 times. I also loved the background paper since it is ballerinas on it as the image is called. Ballerina image is found here.

I almost forgot about this challenge and luckily I had a day off so I could finish it off. When you work so many odd hours and some days even double shifts it tears on your memory and you need to rest and take it easy.

Anyways, I hope you enjoyed the card and inspire you to do something awesome.

Until next time ....................... craft on.
