|Skål ta me fan!|
I was thrilled last Friday when the goodie bag I won from challenge #1 at Gummiapan finally arrived. I thought it had been lost in the mail and it really made my day.! The new challenge is 'Something to eat/drink' and some stamps in the goodie bag fitted perfect for that theme! Lucky me!
|I won a challenge!!|
|Happy mail day!|
So, I wanted to use the stamp of the glass and the sentiment 'SKÅÅÅL!' ('cheers!'). I decided to make a background with the sentiment since it was kind of small. I stamped the glass in black and masked it. Then I stamped the sentiment in different distress ink colors. I mounted this card on another piece of card which I embossed with dots. I was thinking that the dots could symbolize bubbles. I tied some baker's twine on the card and attached another sentiment made with my dymo. That sentiment says 'skål ta me fan' (cheers damn it') and I think it makes a few Swedes smile! In the '80 there was a show on tv called Jacob's Ladder and the host ended all shows with uncorking a bottle of champagne and said 'Skål ta me fan!'. Those were the days!
