It's working....


No I did not fell off the earth ...but after 2 weeks of computer issues (installing a new windows version and a new security program to avoid virusses and other annoying spam stuff) I am able to use my desktop computer again. Blogging on my smartphone is extremely time consuming and Blogger on my tablet was not working great. The last few weeks were quite frustrating....

But I am back....I did make cards but lost a few photos while we installed the new windows version; grrrr. And the cards are already sent....

But I have a card to share with a matching envelope:)

Spring colors:

And washi tape....

And my favorite stamp set from PTI. Here is my card:

With this card I am playing along at the Dutch Card Lovers challenge. We're supposed to make a card with a matching envelope. I used the same stamps on my envelope and used washi tape in matching colors. I hope you like it...

It's good to be back :)

Till soon!


Paper: Bazzil Cardshoppe cardstock from Bij Oma Dee

With a a very long weekend and lots of fun things on my planning I almost forgot to post a card for one of my favorite challenges. This week is filled to the brim and I hope to be back to blogging again when I am back home tomorrow. Before I leave today to spend time with one of my sisters I found a bit of time to share my card.

The current challenge at the Lift Challenge is based upon this card:

And I came up with this: shades of blue, green and yellow.

And to add a bit of contrast a small touch of orange: Here is my card:

Going green


After two busy weeks it's time to share a bit of what has been keeping me busy. First I'll share a card I made for a challenge, second is a card which I did not post in time. Argh!!! And at last a bit of what kept me busy.

I made another card for the Festive Friday challenge; based upon this photo inspiration:

I got carried away by the snowflake and green.... I made a card with bright green cardstock, vellum, a lot of heat embossing, my favorite Papertrey Ink stamp set (In the meadow),  some silver twine and bling:

My second card was made for the previous challenge at the City Crafter challenge. We were supposed to use garden elements. I made a card and wanted to submit it last night but the linking up was already closed. I assumed that I was in time.  Have to check it better... I made this card:

And now what kept me busy.......Two weeks ago we became the proud owners of our own vegetable garden. It's about 100 square metres so lots of space. And work That's were my boys come in :) There is a lot of digging to be done, we need a new  fence, Marcel is making a design for all the vegetables and fruits we want to plant. We also need a little shed there so Marcel is designing that too.. It has been my wish for a long time to have my own vegetable garden. It is located nearby; only a 6 minutes bike drive. My expectations are not too high. We have to get started and maybe next year there will be enough "harvest" to make more home made jams and eating my own vegetables.
Here you have a peek of how it looked two weeks ago;

The garden in front of the photo is our garden. It ends after that big black piece of plastic which is covering the garden during winter against excessive weed. Which means less weeding in spring:). There is a path in between and after that is the next garden of someone else. The bushes is front are raspberries and blackberries. I'll keep you posted of the progress

And I will be back soon; have a great day!

Spring is in the air


Geesh it has been more than a week since I've been here.  It has been busy with lots of fun things and I will post a bit more than usual in the upcoming days to share what kept me busy

But first a set of two cards that I made for the current challenge at Crazy for CAS. I am playing along again and so proud to be the winner of one of the challenges in February with THIS card.

The challenge is based upon this photo inspiration:

I used a stamp set I bought a few years ago and until last night I only used one of the border stamps of this set.  And i made two cards: one with mainly pink and one with mainly yellow.  The pink card is my favorite:)

Here they are:

This is my favorite:)

Hope to visit you soon; sorry for not being around lately
Have a great day,
