Sending you sunshine..... CCCB #65

Hello everyone!

Monday again and things are going so much better here since last Monday!
My FIL left the ICU and is now taken care of at the ward of abdominal surgery.
That's a wonderful step forward; he called us this afternoon; I haven't heard him on the phone in three weeks...

We had friends over fo dinner. They left early because of a business appointment and now it's time for a challenge.
After all the hustle and bustle here I missed a few challenges but I really wanted to participate in this weeks' challenge at CCCB. (I hardly miss a challenge over there)
You have to use an image of the SUN or the word SUN on your project.

I don't have a stamp of the sun and looking for something appropriate took me almost 6 days...

But I found something; I hope it's good enough for this weeks' theme.
I am still not very pleased with the result, I think it's not perfect.
(I am still learning you know :)....)

A card to send to someone who can use a bit of sunshine:
Tiny alphabet letters from Cosmo Cricket:

papers from My Minds Eye ( Stella & Rose "Hazel")
The ticket is from June's online shop.
And a sewing machine which decided to stitch the way he want...

A beautiful image:

And here is my card:

Enjoy your day / evening; till soon!

Wat heerlijk dat het beter gaat, ik hoop dat er een opwaartse lijn is!!

Soms ben je zelf niet zo tevreden, maar dit is een mooie kaart, hoor meid! Je hebt een mooie papierkeus gemaakt bij dit plaatje. Ik zie ook prachtig stikwerk!
Leuk dat jij deze challenges zo trouw maakt, ik ben daar zelf heel slecht in.

Liefs, Marjan

Wat heerlijk om te horen dat je schoonvader normaal 'op zaal' is, dat is een hele stap vooruit zeg! En ongelooflijk dat jij zónder zonnetje buiten toch de inspiratie hebt gevonden om een zonnig kaartje af te leveren, ik heb me suf gepiekerd! Geniet van je avond, veel liefs, Ira xxx
