It has been a very busy time for me with a sick husband, and I have the worst cold that I have not had in many years.
Our kitchen is torn down and rebuilt and now we get painted throughout our home, luckily we have help for the whole, but it is so-so with the creative.
However, I have made a little ATC wedding book as a greeting from my daughter and her friend.
Inspired by the 52 cards in deck, Stephanie Ackerman and Tim Holtz's embossing texture fades, it was these words to a wedding greeting.

In school I learned a song about spring and May, it's called:
Come May you sweet mild (Kom maj du søde milde).
Tim's tag, I had to make this month too. I wanted to have text along the side, but as I don't have the ShadowPress Debossing, this was my solution with cut out letters. Once again it has been great to make this tag.

A Wedding Card for one of my daughter's work colleagues.
It was a difficult task for me. Mette had ordered it in white, no color, lots of lace and flowers! It's not just me, I must have blacken, grinding and getting it to look worn, but here you see what I got out of it ;-)

On SanDee & amelie's Steampunk May Challenge the theme is Heavy metal.
When I heard the theme was Heavy Metal I thought of iron panels for construction, and ended up with this.
On some A5 silver cardboards I used a variety of Tim's texture fades.
Then I cut them in an appropriate size.
And used Tim Holtz technique painted industrial on the pieces.

I was surprised to have been selected as one of the winners of Blogaversary challenge on Country View Challenge, and it is a great honor for me to be asked if I want to be a guest designer for May challenge where the theme is Nature's Glories
The container from Tim Holtz's Matchbox die is used to build up the drawer.
Nature's Glories is a great subject for there are plenty of options, and I am proud to show my mini drawer with a bit of mother nature. Me and my family have always collected things when we are at the beach or in the woods. When we get home, we talk about what we have collected.
