A quilt and a Quilt card!

Got inspired by the beautiful Granny Square Blanket/Quilt challenge at Moxie Fab and made a card to go with my own baby quilt! (made by me - not my granny (-;  )
If you want to play along too, the challenge is open till Oct. 3

Friendship is sewn with love and measured by kindness.

Autumn Gift bag

At Simon Says Stamp they gave you this photo as inspiration for their challenge this week and at

Tuesday Taggers the challenge is : Sth to do with autumn.
Their sponsor this week is the The Craft Barn which is a great place for us papercrafters!

And at Stamp something they want you to use autumn colors. I've made a giftbag for wine bottles with Hero Arts stamping with autumn colors which I think fits all of them! Karin

A Passion for Papertrey

The challenge at A Passion for Papertrey this time is to use squares. I've used my absolute favorite -the PTI librarycard. (those of you who've visited my blog before are perhaps a bit tired of it by now (-;, but I can't help it - it's so useful.) This time I put a little pop-up door on it. Underneath is a secret message about the present my Sister is about to get for her birthday!

The Play Date Cafe Challenge

At the play date cafe they have a really neat challenge going on this week! They want you to use these colors:

and after having played with them for a while I actually fell inlove with them! Got in a Christmasy mood and used Gel-a-tin stamps (Holiday Mail) and made this card:

Crack the code!

How I sweat over colorful cards! But I'm working on it!
This card was inspred by this (see below) great picture at sara's pysselvra. It's got a short message on it which shouldn't be too difficult too figure out (these days).

Accordion Flowers

I've never tried making accordion flowers before, but it was so much fun I'll definately be doing it again! I made a regular (?!!!) sized one and then a mini-mini one to go on the tag - which I think came out quite all right!
CARDS magazine has instructions for how to make these really neat flowers in their August issue.
