Happy Birthday!

Last week i did read - Ett Trykk - a fabulous magazine for cardmakers and scrappers.  And I do scrap! 
It was a rainy day and I discovered the card article with tealight - it's written by one of Norways best cardmaker - Lena KatrineLena Katrines card is wonderful!  Thank you so very much for the good description - how to make!  Yesterday a third cousine of mine had her Birthday - Congratulation! 

It's Basic Grey paper and ordinary plain cardboard.

I always ink my scrapbooing and cards with Archival Ink, Sepia Color from Ranger - I just love that one!

Here are the tealights waiting for their new home!

I use the Tim Holtz ink blending tool - it's beautiful!

This is how I do the gluing...

I love embossing!  Here is one stamp from Stempleglede and one from Stampit - I have embossed with Rangers Antiquities Frosted Crystal

Martha Stewart edger - love them!

The flowers from Kort & Godt are Glimmer Misted with Tattered Leather and Pink Ink from Tattered Angels.

A used a picture from Gudrun Loenneckens collection with vintagepapers on the matchbox - from Minnehjørnet.

So Happy Birthday, Ingeborg!

Here are the flowers coverd with some glitter...

Inside the card i embossed a border from the Grunge Collection made by Stempelglede - marvelous!

I used two small magnets to lock the card...

The front...

...and the back of the card - using nestabilities from Spellbinders - and "my stamp" are from Lisbets Scrapmagasinet.

Vintage Udfordring is a new challenge site from Denmark - todays challenge are about flowers - and this card has flowers and are vintage - join them!

I had a splendid week-end - and I really love this craft - thank you for looking into my blog and do not forget - enjoy...

The First Friday in August

This Friday is a little bit different than the others Fridays.  It's raining and it's grey weather outside - thats not unusually in August. It's De Nordiske Jakt og Fiskedagene in Elverum...it's Festspillene in Elverum...and it's Landsskytterstevet in Elverum...and one more thing...it's Elverumsdagene in Elverum.  It happens in Elverum, Sør Østerdalen - Good Luck!

I want to Congratulate
Karen Halvorsdaughter Skjærbekken Løvhaugen 1824 Nordre Osen
She was married to my Great Great Great Grandmother Siris brother Christen.  They had nine children together.  Christen died and Karen married Nils Gudmundson Løvhaugen from Elverum.  They have no children.  They emmigrated to The Promised Land in 1887...I wonder what happend to Karen?

 Today my father - Ola-Martin Einarson - would have been 80 years old.
That makes this Friday a little bit different.

This colorful oildraft is one in a million that my father has done.  He was a creative soul.  Doing a lot of crafts. 
Have a beautiful Fridag, thank you for visiting my blog and do not forget to enjoy...life!
