White, white and more white

This card was made in the same session as the previous one, but is slightly more embellished. Still a tricky kind of card to photograph. I promise these white cards look much better in person.

With condolences

White, white and white. These cards looks good in reality, but even with some heavy post processing they never look like much in the photos... I got a request for a condolence card and this was my solution.

Baby bonnet for the surprise baby shower

For the surprise baby shower that last week's card was for, I had to quickly throw together a gift as well. By a little accident, I didn't receive my invitation until the night before, so completing the already started knitting project was not an option. I must have been mad to start a new project an hour before midnight, but some intense knitting that night and the following morning resulted in this little baby bonnet.
The pattern is a simple 2x2 rib with eyelets and a spiralling decrease in the back. Have a look at my Ravelry project page for the details.

Baby shower

Baby showers are becoming more common here in Norway, and I recently attended my first! I assume this is an American tradition that's sneaking in through popular culture and this ever more interconnected world. I have no good Norwegian translation of this term. Anyone?

My good old Prismas came out again for the first time in a loooong time. I had this stamp of a bathing baby that was simply begging to be used for this shower card, and who was I to deny it? :) I'm a little bit out of practice, but it turned out okay in the end.

Scraps and PL

Just a clean and simple one today, for my father's birthday. These papers are somewhere between green and teal, which can be a tricky combo. Fortunately a mix of random scraps and some PL supplies did the job just right!
