I have always had a love/hate relationship to these little cuties. I love the stamps but used to HATE to mount them onto the EZmount (I know it is pronounce EASY - but to me it sure wasn't). Now I have found a way that is EZ PZ even for me!! I cut the stamp pretty close to the outline using a good pair of scissors, slam it on the EZ and then place it on my cutting mat.
Take my knife and hold it in a rather vertical position and just let it slide through the foam following the rubber edge. The boy has been made this way - the girl is from the time I mounted and then cut through all the layers. I save time "ungoo'ing" my
scissors and I have a much neater stamp to use.
Og til sidst 1000 tak for alle de mange besøg og kommentarer - det er jo HELT VILDT.
Når dagen er omme er festen slut og i morgen finder jeg vinderne. For der MÅ jo blive flere, da jeg har mere end 175 kommentarer at trække lod blandt og I har banket mit besøgstal op fra 15.000 til over 17.000 på 1 måned. DET må belønnes.
And finally - THANK YOU SO MUCH for all the lovely comments and all the visits. I have received comments from so many countries it is unbelievable! At midnight the party will be over for this time and tomorrow I will announce the winners - yes I am writing WINNERS -
I will have to have several as I have had more than 175 comments and all of you sent my counter way over 17,000 - that's 2,000 visits in a month - I nearly fainted when I saw that.

Who can resist this little darling. Card for a little Swedish girl I know. I stamped Hero Art flowers on the green Bazill. Used MM Patterned paper, ribbons and Ricrac, QK tag, Mary Jane and Maggie. The green 5 is totally bling - best seen if you click to zoom. The little flower is handmade by Majer. Ribbon continues to back of card ending in a "gold" QK crown.
First card with my new babies - for our little 2 year old neighbour. He loves to "help" Mummy in the garden - and this HS stamp was perfect for him. Jeans coloured using Distress Ink - rest of stamp made with aquarel pencils and water. Made his little shirt blue/white striped, but difficult to see here. Card opens under the flag "button". Used QK wagon, grass, tags, ants and Tangerine letters.

Stinne gave me this nice award. She wrote: "Charlie always gets the coolest ideas and makes the most yummy cakes, or at least thats how they look". Thanks a lot Stinne, I must make a cake for you to taste one day. Now I have to find 4 people to pass is to, difficult task as I know MANY creative blogger, but let me sleep on it and I will get back with my 4 names.
TADAAA - så har jeg valgt - det var jo svært:
Gitte Y.: Fordi din blog var en af de første jeg lærte at kende, og du altid er SÅ inspirerende at besøge. (At du samtidig er så HAMRENDE talentfuld at jeg bøjer mig i støvet har IKKE trukket fra. )
Stine66: Fordi du er SÅ kreativ og altid deler dine ideer på din blog. (At du så får mig til at føle mig gammel fordi du ved gud i himlen når SÅ meget at jeg tror selv dit toiletpapir er pyntet med scrapsager har jeg valgt IKKE at lade trække fra =0) )
Cecilie: Igen en af de blogge der altid har nyt at byde på. Altid lækre fotos og fine ting at se på. Og så elsker jeg din stille, skønne humor!
Erica W: My friend in Texas. If it was not for your blog - we would be TOO FAR away and I would have no idea about life at your house. And blogging about everything from your kids potty-habits to your own life, likes and dislikes in the way you do is creative IMHO. Some days a good laugh - sometimes deep thought but NEVER boring.
I kan se disse blogs via mine links i højre side. Så er det de dames tur til at lade den gå videre til 4 bloggere.
Feel free to visit these blogs via my list of links. OK ladies - your turn to pass it on to 4 bloggers.

While I was in France my blog celebrated it's first B-day AND 15,000 visitors. That means I missed the cake and the party RATS - however, I still feel like celebrating and as my new Hänglar stamps arrived today - what could be more perfect than offering a set of stamped images to the lucky winner of a blog-candy competition. Please link to my blog and leave me a comment ANYWHERE on my blog. On June 1st I will find the lucky person. Og SÅ søde er de, lokke lokke lokke....
And THIS is how cute they are!!!!

Home again after two lovely weeks in Southern France. And why this photo ?? Because this is what you see on the street in front of the Cannes Film Festival - it looks like a market with special offers on ladders - but it is where the photographers run to climb and get the best shot everytime someone famous walks by.
Selv gamle hæderkronede hotel Carlton må finde sig i at blive forklædt som filmreklamesøjle.
Behind all the adds for the new films is the famous Carlton hotel.
Og når man tilfældigvis har valgt tøj der matcher gadeblomsterne og har en mor der scrapper, så må man finde sig i at blive fotograferet.
And when the flowers match your outfit and you have a scrapper in the family - this is the result.

Not sure this tradition is known outside of Denmark, but if you turn 30 and have not tied the knot - you are entitled to receive pepper. Hence this card for a colleague of mine, he is getting married in September - but as his B-day is next week we have decided he is too late with that wedding. =0)
