ABC Christmas - E, F, G

 Hi all, 

time for a new challenge at ABC Christmas, this time it's:

E for Elves
F for Food
G for Gold

Lots of great options and I'll probably do more than one this month. But I'll start with G for Gold.

A gorgeous poinsetta from Power Poppy, coloured with distress inks and some gold watercolor for the berries. The gold backing is an adhesive paper meant for kitchen tiles :)

Lynda is hosting the March challenge so hurry over and see what's on offer.

 For February the theme at ABC Christmas is C for Checks and D for Die Cuts and is hosted by Lynda.

I used only die cuts to create my contribution; the red mirror background, the poinsetta and the leaves. 

So hop on over to our challenge site and join in.

2022 year in review

 Realizing that I haven't posted more than a couple of crafts per month this entire year I decided to make a top 5 instead of a favourite per month. And I'm participating in Ellibelle's Year in Review 2022 blog hop. 

So, my top 5 for 2022 is:

It has been a good crafting year, but I have used the sewing maching a lot more than the paper crafting table, let's see what kind of mojo 2023 brings...

I will send a surprise gift to one of the people hopping by, so don't forget to leave a comment on my post to be included in the prize draw. 

And here are the other talented crafters joining in the blog hop:

CAS gift bag

 Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and got exactly what you wished for. I wished for my children and grandchildren to be healthy, happy and home for Christmas and I got all my wishes granted 💕.

Today I have a small gift bag, using just a cherry blossom branch coloured with distress inks, clean and simple. I really like giving gifts in hand made gift bags, then the receiver can give the gift bag on to someone else, a sort of "pay it forward-situation" 😊

 This last challenge for 2022 at ABC Christmas we have reached Y and Z. Tricky letters but my brilliant team mates came up with Y for Youngsters and Z for Zoom

The sentiment is computer generated.

Digital kalender 2023

 Jag har gjort en kalender till min iPad och tänkte att jag kan gärna dela med mig av den om någon känner att de har användning av den.

På startsidan - och dit kommer man från alla sidor genom att klicka på det lilla huset - finns flikar för årets alla månader. Dessa flikar är länkar till en månadsöversikt och i högerkanten finns den månadens veckor. Så om jag väljer fliken maj och vill till den 3 maj så väljer jag att klicka på vecka 18 i högerkanten och kommer då till bladet för den veckan. 

Formatet är pdf så du behöver bara hämta den på din iPad - eller maila den till dig själv om du sitter vid en dator eller telefon, och öppna den i det anteckningsprogram du använder. Jag använder appen Goodnotes så jag väljer bara alternativet Öppna med Goodnotes.

ABC Christmas - W/X

 This month at ABC Christmas the theme is 

W for white or X for X-tra special. 

I have long thought about making a shadow box and decided that I would give it a go for this challenge. I used my Silhouette cameo for cutting out the pieces and then I mounted them together. I must say I'm really pleased with the result. 

This is the box with an electrical tea-light behind it.

Crafty Catz - 3 or more layers
Happy little stampers - Christmas 
Crafty Calender - A/G
