CCCB # 75 "Let's face the music"


This last week I spent most of the time with a zillion Kleenex tissues. And I am glad to be back to cardmaking again :)

I am in time to join this weeks' challenge at the City Crafter Challenge Blog
This week it's all about music. Sheet music, a charm, an image, musical name it!

I made a card for someone who is going through a difficult time.
Her mum went to the hospital for a scan a passed away within a week....
I decided to make a card in soft colors with a little splash of color. .I hope it will comfort her.
 (It's not a formal sympathy card)

I recently bought a doily die and I LOVE it. And had to use it again:)
My sister  Jacqueline gave me the little silver pearls; another favorite...
Papers, tag and sticker from Melissa Frances; sentiment from Waltzingmouse stamps

I added a pearl brad to my yo- yo heart and the trim is from Maya Road

It's hard to see in the photo but I did ink the edges with a bit of white ink.
Here is my card :

Off  I am; have a great evening/ day!
Till soon!

CCCB #74 I "heart" you


How are you?

There is a wonderful challenge going on at the City Crafter Challenge Blog. You can still join us!
The challenge is just to incorporate a heart(s) on your project.
This is the photo inspiration:

I made a card for my niece who had a little "goodbye" party last night. She finished her study at the University of Groningen. The next months she will be travelling with her boyfriend in the Far East (Malaysia, Indonesia and so on..)

She is the eldest child of one of my sisters and left home 6 years ago to study here. Living away from home in another city she loved to come over at our house for dinner. She's a wonderful young woman. With a great sense of humor and a lovely personality.

I bought a book for her filled with photos of Groningen. To look at and think back of a place that she loves  so so much and brought her so many good things. ( That's what she told us)

I made the card and didn't add a sentiment; I wrote a personal letter and tucked it inside.

The phots are a bit blurry; I finished the card yesterday evening at 7.00 PM and it was already getting dark due to the
cloudy weather and rain...)

I used a new doily die and paired it up with some embossed papers and a text stamp from Waltzingmouse stamps

A heart cut out of felt with a little flower - made by me :) -  on top

Here is my card:

Well I'm off for some coffee and I hope to squeeze in some time for another card.
Till soon!
