Since one part of the party was at sea I thought these were some good images to use!

DT Monday - for Boys and Dogs!!

What do I mean?? Well you will find out soon further down. I am now back in Malaysia after a very long vacation in Sweden. Lovely summer, even if I didn't get to go to Magnolia, can you believe it? Never mind, next time! OK, today is DT Monday and we start with....

Aren't they the cutest, Mo's dog and boy? Love this image which I colored with Copics, the papers are from Basic Grey, the details I found among my Swedish stash. This week's prize is from Digital Delights.
Patti brings us this challenge, which I never heard of, but thanks to Google I found out it's about lazy doing nothing days, like during vacation. Hope I was right, LOL! This image by Nina/Paper Cupcakes is perfect for the project. Lazy day on the beach. I used paper piecing technique and framed it in a white wooden frame I had hanging around empty. For this challenge you can use any acquired image from PCC.

From my friend Hege...

Look what I got from Hege, a dear blog friend from Norway! A beautiful envelope full of wise words and a friendship stamp. AND in the package were also a stack of wonderful design papers printed in Norway! My next posting will be on Monday when I am back in Malaysia again!!

DT Monday - Stamp with Fun!

Hey all, hope you had a great weekend! Today is my DT Monday but this Monday (and next) looks a bit different. Nina at There is Magic in The Air is looking for more DTs and is not hosting a challenge this and next week. However please pop over to her blog if you are interested in joining our design team, we are having a lot of fun! Click here!

Today we have a wonderful sketch from Andrea for you (as you can see I did not pay 100% attention to it, I blame my brains for being on holiday). I wanted to use one of our sponsor's digi stamps, but I can't use my printer!! Anyway this is stamp from Hanglar and for the very first time I colored with Distress inks. I am really happy about the result, I only used a few colors.

This week's sponsor is Digital Delights and you can win a gift voucher! So what are you waiting for.....
