By the way, does anyone know if Best Creations Inc is still in business? Their website is down, and neither their blog nor their Facebook page has been updates since 2011.

Time to celebrate

“Time to celebrate” is what the Swedish sentiment on this card means in English. I got the inspiration for this card from Sketch Saturday’s sketch #296.

You and me

For CAS(E) this Sketch‘s latest challenge, I made a Valentine’s card. I think this is the last Valetine’s card for this year though.

Here’s my take on the sketch. The designer paper I used as background is actually from a Christmas collection. But I thought it matched perfectly with the colors of the vintage image! “Du & jag” means “You & me” in English.

It’s Valentine’s Day very soon…

…and when being late with making Valentine’s cards, keep them clean and simple!

Here’s what I made tonight. As clean and simple as it possibly can be.

I absolutely LOVE that “Dig” stamp, which can be combined with other words! Dig is the Swedish word for You.

The first card I made was for CAS-ual Fridays‘ latest challenge, which is to make a card with an embellishment extending past the edge:
