Jule Edvin pengelommekort/ Christmas Edvin pocketholder card

Dette blir en kort posting på bloggen siden det er min andre idag. Jeg har laget et julepenge lommekort for å gi til min nevø til jul. Jeg synes nemlig de standard lommene de kommer i fra butikken er ganske så kjedelige, så jeg laget min egen.  For min DT post for Totally Gorjuss klikk her.
Just going to make a short post this evening, as this will be my second one today. I made a gift pocketholder card to give away for my nephew for Christmas. I think it is quite boring with those standard cards they come in at the store that I gotta make my own to give away. For my DT post at Totally Gorjuss click here.

Jeg har brukt en mal fra denne bloggen her, og tilpasset det til egen størrelse. Håper dere liker det, og ikke minst håper jeg nevøen min liker det. På innsiden er det bare blått, for jeg har gjort det enkelt og skrevet en personlig hilsen inni.
I have used a tutorial from this blog here and adjusted the size a bit. Hope you'll like it, and not least that my nephew is going to like it. The inside is just blue as I made it to use for a personal note inside.

1 prize of 5 digi stamps of your choice
I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with likeminded people. I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself.

This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Now over to my project for this week's challenge. I've made a briefcase and a tag. I'm inspired by one of my  Papirdokke buddies, Eva Marie, that drew her measurements and shared with all of us scandinavian paper dolls;) Finally I found a tutorial for the briefcase here, almost how I made mine.
