CCCB # 62

Hello everyone!

How are you? Are you all enjoying summer?
Here in Holland it really is a bit too hot :)

Although we had no plans for the weekend....it went by before we knew it.

I am a little late for submitting my card for this weeks' challenge at the City Crafter Challenge blog
This week the challenge is about to use the number ONE or the word "first" on your card or project.

It ook me a few days and Saturday evening I got the idea :)
The idea came with the quotes I added to one of my boards at Pinterest. (I will post about that soon)
You can find the original quote HERE.

I just had to use this quote. I changed the font and color and used it on my card.
But besides the sentiment I wanted to make a card with white and a few soft/vintage colors and used the papers from the Girls Paperie.Here is a peek of the papers and a  doily that I got from my sister Jacqueline.




I also knew I wanted to add a little splash of bright colors. The brad (yes I also went out of my comfort zone; this is red :).......) is from my stash and that adorable flower is crocheted by my sister Jeanne.




I love love love this quote. You can use it for so many ocassions.
And I immediately had to think of my husband; Marcel.
I can tell you that he is the best thing that ever happened to me.....



And in this quote  you can read the word "one"..........

I sponged the edges of my card with Egg Shell from Color Box.
Here is my card:




I hope you like it....
Almost time to go to bed ( It's 11.19 PM here ) but it's still sooooo warm and I think it will be one of those nights that it's hard to fall asleep. 

Till soon!
Stella

Hi Stella!!

Wat een super leuke kaart! Mooie quote en ook de tekst op de achtergrond vind ik heel leuk! Mooi kaartje weer, Stella!
Tja, dit is mij ook een beetje te warm zo, hoor! Vandaag zou er onweer moeten komen, maar hier in Amersfoort is de lucht nu weer strakblauw! We gaan het zien!

Groetjes en fijne dag nog,
Wendy

Oh wat heb je die tekst op een prachtige manier gebruikt Stella! Zó mooi om de challenge van deze kant te benaderen! En ik ben nogal van de teksten en quotes (niet op m'n kaarten, dat valt eigenlijk best wel mee, maar wel bij ons in huis en zo). Vind daarom ook het tekstpapier zo schitterend erbij passen! Kanten hart en het is weer helemaal af! Ik ben ook naar binnen gevlucht, het is niet te harden (en dat voor een deels tropenmeisje ha ha ha!). Moet eigenlijk hoognodig strijken, maar hé, wat denk jij? Dacht het niet hè? Knoei zat in de kast, trekken we dat maar aan ;-) Ga toch lekker genieten van de namiddag/avond, veel liefs, Ira xxx
Cheryl Nelson said…

Liefs Corine

Hi Stella

I am a bit behind in my commenting .. .. sorry!!! It has been a busy week.

I love, love, love that sentiment too!! I am going to write it down as it needs to appear on one of my hubby's cards.

Loving your soft colours and your sister's crochet flower.

Love Jules xx

Oh that doily is precious ! We are having such a heatwave over here too. To warm to sleep without the aircondition, but to guilty to keep it on for too long...
It's pretty hot here in the Eastern part of the US, too. Darn global warming!

Even though red is outside your comfort zone (and mine as well), this gingham brad looks PERFECT with the teeny little crocheted flower from Jeanne, and the patterned paper. And that quote is so pretty...and so true of those of us lucky enough to have someone to love. :)
