Take care of yourself

Sorry for the late posting today. Iam just not myself. I was up last night til 2.30 am in the morning. I simply could not fall asleep, so i started to clean my craft area :-(
Today i would like to share a card started for a challenge that was like about 4 week posted on Cute Card Thursday. The challenge was to make a non square card. I did not finish this one back than because, my card is square – i just cut it kind of like a flag. However.. how could i not finish this cute Hanglar boy. Finished the coloring last weekend and all i had to do was putting the layers together and add embellishments. I am quite pleased with the fact that the card turned out so nicely without using any

flowers.Stamps: Hanglar Stanglar
Sentiment: Stampin up
Papers: The Girls Paperie (On Holiday)
Embellishements: Ribbons (Stampin up), Jumbo Eyelets (Stampin up), Charms (Cute Stamps and Cards)
Coloring: Distress inks (Cute Stamps and Cards) and Stampin up refiller bottles
Okay.. I need to tell you something :-) I am walking around like i am a princess for the day :-) can you believe it …my friend Kristine from Norway designs papers for Inkido, she has now her brand new fall collection released and she named one of her papers after me. one paper has my name!!! omg… is in her “Friendship” Collection, but there are many more!
i have some cards on my blog using her designs – check my Hanglar cards.. i love that the designs of her papers are so vintage – they just match so perfectly.
Thank you Kristine!!! xoxoxo
