Hello, The winter Season is right behind the corner, I feel. So it’s time to create the snow inspired cards
Though I don’t like the winter season at all, I like creating the cards this time of the year. I used the Home for The Holdays collection. It reminds me about the heavily snow times we have when I as a child. Now the climate has changed.
I’ve added the die cut ornaments and the chipboard frame
I also added the crochet snowflakes and it really came out cozy and warm

Hi there! How are you? I really hope you are having a lovely holiday. I know this time of year can be sad for many, often because the ones they have dear are not here anymore. I really miss my mother who passed away three years ago, especially at this time of year. She loved everything about Christmas, and mostly because she could bring the family together. I think that is an important thing I have learned from her, and that I can be better at. Just to spend time with family and loved ones. But I am not that good cook that she was 🙂
Some nights ago I went to my friend Audhild, and we sat down colouring together with two other friends. It was so nice. And even if I sat there for hours, this image was the only one I had time to colour. I really love the blue and brown colours in the “Home for the holidays” collection. And felt it was perfect for little Tilda here (Tilda with sock puffs).
I made some poststamps with the sheet called “Love the snow” and a die from Magnolia (Vintage Box, 3rd edition). The little snowmen are really cute.
The snowflake and the stars are from a banner from Wycinanka. If you look closely on the card you can see that I have tore the paper and put a lace and some more papers inside. But as always I decorate too much, so that it is difficult to spot what I had planned to show you 🙂
Here in the west part of Norway we haven’t had snow yet. I am longing for some snow now, not only rain. We have had the extreme weather Urd howling around our house. But luckely it was not strong enough to make any damage around here.
I hope you enjoyed looking at my card today. Wish you a lovely day. And since I will be in the Maja Design Creative Team for another year (Yay, soooo proud! A big thanks to Camilla and Marie for having me!), I will be making a new post in two weeks.
But before I end, I will show you the papers I have used for my project:

Big warm Christmas hugs from,
Here in the northern Europe it is still autumn and we can still enjoy quite bright days outside and be amazed by all the autumn-like colours the nature brings. However, the winter is knocking on the door and will soon embrace us with white snow, coldness and crispy air. Nothing bad about that, I love winter time..! Go sledding with the kids, make beautiful things in the fine, white snow – like snow angels, caves to cuddle in and snowmen with carrots as noses.. And then, head inside to enjoy a nice cup of warm chocolate in front of the fire place.. I think you really enjoy being inside more, when it’s chilly outside – actually you enjoy both worlds even more. ♥
Our newest collection is taking us outside to hang with the snowmen, meet the reindeer and say a quick hello at the mysterious old man with the white, long beard who has arrived with a huge sack on his shoulder…
We watch the snowflakes fall from the sky, in all it’s different shapes and sizes.
We head inside, to warm ourselves in front of the stove, as we’re baking some gingerbreads to enjoy later on. During the evening we’re munching on our freshly baked pastries while we’re wrapping some presents for our beloved ones.. We are wallowing in different patterns and beautiful lacings.
You wanna join? Welcome! ♥
This collection will soon show up in a store near you..
