Inventory Challenge #43 and Entries in Hjertebodens Yule Blog






Good morning everyone....wishing you all a fabulous Friday! Danielle and I welcome you once again to our Inventory Challenge. The theme for this week is "Swirls and Curves". I am featuring a tag card for this challenge with an adorable Haenglar image. I am also entering this card in the LOVELY HAENGLAR ONLY challenge which requires a tag and I am entering this and the rest of the cards in the August HJERTEBODENS YULE BLOGG. I have about 30 Christmas cards already.....I am soooo happy! There will be no last minute rush this year!

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome a new member to our happy little group, Kathy, from Kathy's Knook. Welcome, dear Kathy!!!! We are thrilled to have you and look forward to your fabulous creations! We also want to welcome Charlene back into the fold....sooooo happy you are back with us, Charlene!!!!

My tag card features lovely lace from my dear friend, Danielle, ribbon from my sweetie, Claudia, and the lovely rose is from my sweet girl, Elise. Thank you so much girls!
The paper was designed for Inkido by the mega-talented Kristine Moldenhauer Biseth.
The swirl is a Magnolia die.

I made another card featuring Stampscapes with the mini Tilda with Fir from the 2010 Christmas Collection. The background dp was designed by Gudrun Loennecken. The jute is from RRR.

I also made a card featuring Tilda with Ornament using papers from my all-time favorite collection, BoBunny's Midnight Frost collection.

Now, I would like to invite you to visit my friends and teammates, DANIELLE, RENE, SANDY, CATHYLYNN, CHARLENE AND KATHY. I know they will have something fabulous to share with you.

Thank you sooooo much for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. It means so much to me! Hugs to all and wishing you all a wonderful weekend! Christina

  3. Good Morning Crissy, Let me grab my jaw put it back in place... WOW. I was going to write : So beautiful..Now which one is my favourite? I just noticed my twin upthere, wrote the same thing I was thinking!!!!!!!!!! LOL. Actually I can't pick one that I like best, all 3 are awesome. Love the tag card, with the cute hAnglar for its color combo, and its style. Love Tilda, because she is so pretty, delicately showcased with such beautiful DPs and wonderful colors.l And your combination of Stampscape and Tilda is BEAUTIFUL, such a lovely winter scenery, with Santa in the moonlight, Tilda just fits perfectly. WOW again. MAGNIFIQUE.

  22. Good Morning, Christina! :)
    Oh wow, I can't think of a better way to start this sunday than popping by your blog and see all these masterpieces. They're all so gorgeous, and so very inspiring! Love them all so much. You have so many creative ideas, I'm in awe! The way you've put Tilda on the darkblue cardstock is, as Annika said, VERY effective, and out of this world gorgeous! Love how you've made that snowflake-circle sparkle so beautifully, and how you've added the red blingpearls, they really make everything pop. Absolutely stunning!
    And the Christmas scene with the Mini Tilda...!! OH MY GOD. Can't find words. I absolutely adore it!

    hugs,
    Hanna
