Sunday release at Digistamsp4Joy

Another new Sunday relases at Digistamps4Joy and this is a special image that I have used! =)
A friend of mine ordered a wedding card with a pregnant bride so I got a few images for her to choose from, this was one of them but it wasn't exactly right, but I wanted to make a card anyway.

Never know if I have need of a similair card in the future! =)

The bride and groom are designed by JenLee and colored with promarkers! =)
I added some stickles to the roses in her hair and to the flowers + the hearts on the paper!

I'm a bit late posting this... not sure where my time has flown away nowadays!

We have a new Christmas Progressive Challenge at Lady Anne's Challenges and it's our 3rd challenge!

The image is colored with promarkers and I added a white pen to make some highlights to the lamps! The background paper is a recycled paper from an earlier project and I matched it with a patterned paper in green colors!

Had to add a closeup of the lights! =)

Smartson testpilot på Extra fin falukorv från ICA

Jag har testat ICA's Extra fina falukorv med 71% kötthalt via Smartson

Först smakade vi på korven som den var, den smakade bra! Sedan blev det korv i ugn med ost mellan skivorna, tillsammans med eget potatismos! 

Dock så blev det inget kort av det jag tog när den var klar, men innan såg det ut så här:

Korven var fast och smakade gott med den extra höga kötthalten, dock så är den jag äter i vanliga fall mycket godare, men detta är helt klart ett bra alternativ! =)

Shelly's Images has a new Bonus challenge for March and this tie we got the lovely Spring Lamb to play with!
I printed it out this weekend but didn't have time or energy to finish the card but now its done and I like how it turned out! =)

I used my promakers to color the lamb and let it stay white, just added some pink and some grey for shading! The flowers are colored in several colors and then I found a leftover piece of my brown paper with buttonflowers on it, so perfect, just added a yellow scrap paper and draw some stitches on it! =)

Art with No Boundaries Ezine March Vol. 4 - Guest Artist

I made this as a Guest Artist entry in Art With No Boundaries Online Ezine March Vol. 4 and it's one of my favorites so far! Please go and check out all the other fantastic creations that Chris at CS Designs has made too!

I found this little box with coasters at a flea market and thought it would be a good project for recycling! =)
I wasn't sure what to make of it, after I had given my mum all the coasters, so decided to check through my digis first.

When I found CS Designsbeautiful Anna Wong image I just had to print her out and color her with my promarkers.
Her hair got a brown color, the decorations in her hair are in green, yellow and red tones and a slight touch of pink on her lips.

Then back to the box, I have package of asian style napkins that are well used for crafting, so I cut out a piece and used my decoupage glue to add it to the lid of the box. Since the wood is so dark I had to add two layers of napkins and I really like how it turned out! 

I added Anna Wong with my trusty glue and then used a stamp pad to chalk the edges of the lid in champagne. To make sure it wouldn't come off I use a varnish spray and on the areas where it didn't work, I added some more decoupage glue.
I really like how it turned out and maybe I'll keep it or give it to a friend, haven't decided yet! =)

Nattjästa frukostbröd/Night fermented breakfast bread

Här kommer receptet på de goda bröden jag bakade förra veckan! =)

Nattjästa frukostbröd              ca 10 st              (recept från Hembakat 1/2013)

4 dl vatten, rumsvarmt
12 g jäst (1/4 paket)
1½ tsk salt
1½ msk honung
3 dl rågmjöl, fint eller grovt
½ dl rågkross
5-6 dl vetemjöl

Garnering: pumpakärnor eller solrosfrön

1.       På kvällen: Häll vattnet i en bunke och smula ner jästen. Blanda ordentligt.
2.       Tillsätt salt, honung, rågmjöl, rågkross och vetemjöl, lite i taget. Blanda ihop till en smidig och lite lös deg.
3.       Täck bunken med plast och ställ in den i kylen över natten.
4.       På morgonen: Sätt in en tom plåt i ugnen och sätt ugnen på 250 grader.
5.       Kavla ut degen till en längd, ca 26 x 56 cm, på ett mjölat bakbord. Vik degens långsida på mitten så att längden får måttet 13 x 28 cm.
6.       Skär längden i ca 10 bitar och lägg dem på ett bakplåtspapper. Pensla bitarna med ljummet vatten och strö över pumpakärnor och/eller solrosfrön. Låt bröden jäsa under bakduk i 30 min.
7.       Ställ en rostfri skål med ca 1 dl vatten på botten i ugnen.
