"They're here!"

To quote Carol Anne from Poltergeist, "They're here"! But I'm not talking about poltergeists, I'm talking about my longed-for Distess Markers which I ordered like two months ago. I can't wait to try them out! I also ordered the limited edition of the Distress Ink pads in the autumn colors. And the ribbon - it's the bonus for the long and patient waiting! Hmm. But I'll tell you, I haven't been very patient!!! Tomorrow's schedule is rearranged!!

ATC monochromatic + bling

Yesterday we had our fourth crop and I participated in my third ATC swap. I missed the last crop and the swap since I've been abroad for a month, hence the silence here on my blog as well. The theme this time was monochromatic + bling. I really, really enjoy these swaps! ATC's are so fun to make and so fun to recieve! ATC's was something I never thougth that I would do!

My ATC is the orange one to the left in the top row. The color orange came naturally since I spent the last month in Spain and I've seen so many orange trees. We also spent an awful night in a horrible hotel and the room's name was 'naranja' (orange in spanish). The sentiment "Hem ljuva hem" means "Home sweet home" and even though I love travelling I just love to come home!

In Spain I found a wine with the same name as on a system at my work. It was a given gift to my collegues since they have worked so hard while I've been away. When I came home from the crop I made som tags to go with the bottles. I borrowed the die from a friend and I love it! I have to get one of my own! My collegues were really happy to recieve the gift today!
