Stamping Up!

I don't think it is a secret that I like my stamps set from Stamping Up! called Wetland.
I can make cards for men with those stamps. I find it difficult to make cards for men, but these stamps help a lot.

I'm feeling better and better. The new medication seems to help. I still can't drive 45 min, so I still have my son or daughter help out, if I have to go to Århus to the hospital. I'm looking forward to be able to do thing by myself - there's so much freedom in that.

I must say that the last 2 years have showed me, how much we do things for eachother in our family - without complaining. Oh, how I love my family
Here's a few cards from the last days.








Jeg tror ikke, det er en hemmelighed, at jeg kan lide mine stempler fra Stamping Up! kaldet Wetland.
Jeg kan lave kort til mænd med disse stempler. Jeg har ellers svært ved at lave kort til mænd, men disse stempler hjælper en hel del.

Jeg føler mig bedre og bedre. Den nye medicin virker godt. Jeg kan stadig ikke køre de 45 min det tager at køre til Århus, så jeg er afhængig af at min søn eller datter hjælper når jeg skal på sygehuset i Århus. Jeg ser frem til at klare mig selv - det er der megen frihed i.

Jeg må sige, at de sidste 2 år har vist, hvor meget vi gør for hinanden - uden at beklage sig. Åh, hvor jeg elsker min familie.

I made it!

My goal has been 100 cards to Operation Skriv hjem and I still needed 10 cards by the weekend. With with the flu it was not likely to happen.
Then last night I thought: Why not make Mother Days cards! And so I did.
It is funny how one forgets how a flu feels - anyone wants it? It's free.
Last time I had it like this, was back in 2010!

But then again, when is it conviend to be sick!
If you have lemons / make lemonade. I made these cards yesterdat, in between sleeping. Only 7 more cards, then I can send a 100 cards to Operation Skriv Hjem.
I'm down with the flu! It's hard because there's so much I had planned to do.

En dejlig overraskelse



Hallo! I hope everyone has had a good day. My day became much better tham it was, for my daughter Grethe , came unexpected to visit us. I have finished the embroidery I was working on. It is to Mads ' room - a nightlight ! As you can see,it is Pooh with friends. I know, it is a Christmas motif - but then I just have to make an all year one. Now I have started making Mads ' advent calendar . Here the subject is a locomotive with gnomes and gifts.


Hejsa
Jeg håber alle har haft en god dag. Min dag blev pludselig mere dejlig, for min datter Grethe, kom på uventet besøg.
Jeg er blevet færdig med det broderi jeg var i gang med. Det er til Mads' værelse - en vågelampe! Som I kan se er motivet Peter Plys med venner. Godnok et julemotiv - men så må jeg jo bare i gang med et andet et. 
Nu er jeg gået i gang med Mads' julekalender. Her er motivet et lokomotiv med nisser og gaver.


Beside that, I made ​​5 cards to OSH. I was just playing around, so there was also time for a pop -up cards, for I have not tried to make one before. Inspiration came from Brandis card : koala-pop-up-card

 5 cards for children
5 børnekort til 
OSH

 og lavet 5 kort til OSH. Jeg skulle lige lege lidt, så der blev også tid til et pop-up kort, for det har jeg ikke prøvet at lave før. Inspirationen hertil kommer fra Brandis card:

Pandekagedag - eller hvide Tirsdag!


Yesterday it was Tuesday after Fastelavn. That means it was Pancake Day! At our house we had pancakes for breakfast .
In the old days it was also called "white Tuesday " because white flour and milk were among the things you should keep well away from during faste. To read more abt. Fastelavn, pleasego to: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fastelavn
I love the days that means something special , and have something symbolic for the day. It can be Apple Day , Herring or something else .
Yesterday I also made ​​ginger biscuits. They are the ones Lars like best.

​​Ginger biscuits

75 gr Butter 175 gr syrup 75 gr sugar 300 gr flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 4 tablespoons ground ginger
Heat butter, syrup and sugar until the butter and sugar is melted.
Pour into bowl and leave to cool.
Mix the dry ingredients, and stir them into the dough.
Make the dough into small balls, abt. 25 gr a piece.
Press them a little flat.
Put them on the baking sheet and bake 7-8 min. at 200 degrees.
Let them rest on the baking sheet 5 min. before they are moved.




I går var det Tirsdag efter fastelavn, og det betød det var: Pandekagedag.

Pandekagedagen blev i gamle dage også kaldt "hvide Tirsdag", fordi hvidt mel og mælk var blandt de ting, man skulle holde sig langt væk fra i fasteperioden.
Her fik vi pandekager til morgenmad. 
Her er et link, hvor du kan læse mere Pandekagedagen el. Hvide Tirsdag    

Jeg elsker de dage som betyder noget specielt, og hvor der er knyttet noget symbolsk til dagen. Det kan være Store Bagedag, Æbledagen, Sildens dag eller noget helt andet.
I går fik jeg også lavet ingefærsmåkager. Det er dem Lars bedst kan lide.

 Ingefærsmåkager
                                                                    

75 gr smør
175 gr sirup
75 gr sukker
300 gr mel
1 tsk natron
4 spsk stødt ingefær

Varm smør, sirup og sukker, til smør og sukker er smeltet.
Hæld det i en skål, og lad det stå til afkøling.
Bland de tørre ingredienser, og rør dem i dejen.
Form dejen til små kugler, ca, 25 gr pr.stk., og tryk dem lidt flade. Sæt dem på bagepladen, og bag dem ca 7-8 min ved 200 gr. 
Lad dem hvile på bagepladen 5 min. før de flyttes.

Church! Life is great to day.

A Great Sunday

I've been to church today. It is so great to partake in the Lords sacrement.
I made some cards to day - I went back to what I know. It does noT mean that I will not still try new things, I will - it's just that what I've made the last few days have not been succesful.
So, the next few days I'll make cards for "Operation Skriv Hjem" (OWH in English).

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Jeg har været i kirke idag. Det var pragtfuld at tage del i Herrens nadver.
Jeg har lavet nogle kort i dag - jeg er gået tilbage til det jeg kender. Det betyder ikke at jeg fremover, ikke vil prøve nye teknikker, for det vil jeg - det er kun fordi jeg ikke er lykkedes med noget de sidste par dage.
Så, de næste dage vil jeg lave kort til Operation Skriv Hjem.



The marbled background is made with shaving cream and distres color.

Den marmorerede baggrund er lavet med barberskum og distres farve.



The dark color reminds me of the color from the military, but it is a sheet with a flower motiv.

Den mørke baggrund synes jeg minder om militær-farver, men det er et ark med et blomster motiv.

Bleach and nasal spray!


Nothing goes as it should today.
None of my cards have been as I would like them to be. The bucket under the desk is filled with cards, that amounted to nothing. So, why not do something crasy with some of the cards?
I found some bleach and some nasal spray. You may ask what these two things has to do with card making! Well, I've made drops on my craft before, so why not try bleach and nasal spray?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Intet går som det skal i dag.
Ingen af mine kort er blevet til noget.Hvorfor så ikke gøre noget vildt med nogle af de kasserede kort? Skrallespanden under skrivebordet er ved at være fyldt...
Jeg fandt noget klorin og noget næsespray. Hvad har de 2 ting at gøre med at lave kort? Jo, jeg har før lavet dråber på kort med vand. Nu ville jeg se om man kunne med disse to ting. 



This one was made by using nasal spray. The drops/dots are quite small.
Til dette kort brugte jeg næstespray. Dråberne/pletterne blev meget små.

For this card I used bleach. There's fewer but bigger drops.
Til dette kort brugte jeg klorin. Der blev færre dråber og de var større end næstesprayen.

A card and Mads' first sleepover!


I have not made much craft the last few days, but now I've made a new Christmas card. I found the idea for the card, on  Beccys Place. Here's the link to the original card: A technique-class-lattice-card.
This is how my card turned out. Next time I think - still don't know - I'll put  a light piece of paper, inbetween the 2 pieces of paper, that make up the front of the card. Any suggestions?



A un-traditional Christmas card!
