Great News!

Hello Everyone!

I'm so happy to announce you that our dear and sweet little boy was born on the 13th of September 2013!! And can you believe that he was born on our 16th wedding anniversary day!! We couldn't have a better gift!! The number 13 has always been a lucky number for us! We really feel so blessed! These past 9 months haven't been easy, but now we are all enjoying being able to hold our little sweet heart. Here in Finland, the baby's name is only given at the baptism, so we still have a little bit time to think about the name! 

Our baby boy's weight was 2900 grams and 48 cm at the birth. He is so cute and tiny!

Bedtime Story Sketch Challenge.

Hello Everyone!

I'm so happy to have been able to make a card for this Waltzingmouse sketch challenge #2! I know, you haven't seen me a lot here on my blog during these last few months... so many things have happened and I really wished I had more time for crafting... I now just hope that I will soon be able to share very special news with you!!

This time I chose to make a baby card for a little boy. I used the Country Labels No.4 for the frame and the Nordic Baby stamp set for the sentiment. There are many different layers and also three little roses made with my Sizzix Flowers, 3-D die. I added a bow with a little white heart, a Welcome tag and a few pearls and here it is:

Here's the Bedtime Story Sketch #2:


Have a great day and see you soon here on my blog!

September Beautiful World Tour.

Beautiful World Graphic

Hello Everyone!

Welcome to the September Beautiful World Tour! Time is just going so fast... summer is almost over in Finland and we can already feel the fall coming... the weather is not so warm anymore and the nights are dark.

This month our lovely hostess is Aleksandra and our theme is a Postcard!

Did you know that your travel around Flourishes World gives you the opportunity to win a FREE FLOURISHES STAMP SET?? All we ask is that you leave a comment on each one by September 30th for your chance to win!!

If you've jetted in from Aleksandra's blog, then you have arrived at the right destination! If you haven't, perhaps you'd like to start your journey back in Florida at the Flourishes Blog so you don't miss all the beautiful inspiration along the way!

For my card, I chose the Antique Map and the S' More Fun stamp sets. I know, my card doesn't really look like a postcard, but I was thinking about something connected to travels because when traveling you often send a postcard! This summer we had the opportunity to travel a little bit around Finland in a motorhome and that's why I chose this cute caravan! A postcard is usually flat, but I just couldn't leave it without some extras! So I put some lace and twine! The Antique Map image was stamped on vellum. I also stitched some of the edges and here it is:

Thanks for taking time to visit me, it's time to grab your passport and board the Flourishes Flight BWT, your next destination is:
