today I'm sharing mini shaker tags that are shaped like snowglobes
 the snowglobes are made with Lawn Fawn's snowglobe gift tag die set. i used glitter paper to make them more icy looking. the stamps inside are simply celebrate winter and tree before n' after
 the tags open so as to write a little something. at the back i heat embossed "happy new year"
i colored with Promarkers icy grey then added pencil stripes on the tree. the snowman has promarker's sunflower, mint and cyan and arctic blues.
the snow and shine details were added with a Posca marker

space box card

Hey everyone
today i'm showing a card i made for my nephew's birthday. boys cards can be tricky to make...so I chose to make a space card 
 All stamps are from Lawn fawn (Beam me up) except for the planets (from a free coloring page) and the sentiment (which is by me). the pop up box die is by Lawn fawn too. i colored everything with promarkers and pencils.
challenges entered:
Lawn fawnatics: perfect for parties
As you like it: favourite stamp brand and why (i love Lawn fawn for their cute and naive style but also for the perfect finition of their stamps. the lines are always neat. and the stamps are not set in a scene but can really be used in different ways. i'm not keen on fussy stamp styles or scene stamps. i find LF to be like Lego, very versatile and well finished).
AUd sentiments: anythg goes + a sentiment
Bastel Traum: use a Lawn fawn stamp set
cupcake inspiration: pop up

knitted gnomes

today i'm presenting a project that's not a card, and it's little Jonasson:
 i knitted a little gnome with 4 needles after buying the pattern off the mochi land site. i changed the pattern a little and added blue glass eyes and Jonasson is ready to go on an adventure
 Exploring the garden is a thrill ! but watch out !
Fortunately Sherpa is a very kind cat trained not to hunt !
But hold on tight Jonasson ! 
at the end of the day, Jonasson meets the lads in the pub and they all have a good laugh with...a pint of milk or water !
 Night time... everyone is tucked up in his own home-sewn bed. one of them not so lonely, scored on a pretty lass... in bed the major problem is: beard on top or under ? (cf Tintin, coke en stock)
 When the weather is fine, Jonasson goes out to sea with his good friend Tabarly but they're sometimes chased up by pirates! scary !

 His favourite time of year though is definitely Christmas when you can build snowmen and get to meet Santa ! HO HO HO!!
all gnomes and snowmen knitted by Shuly
all beds sewn by Shuly too
