Birthday

Hello!

 I came home soaking wet ...thanks to a load of rain that just fell down at the moment I drove home on my bike. And now the sun is shining; yes...very nice:)

It's still quitel chilly here and I am looking forward to better temperatures. 
Yes we're slowly moving into spring and everything outside is getting a bit more green every day. 
But the temperatures are not very spring-y.

I made a brithday card in fresh spring colors for a sweet and close friend.

I love these Waltzingmouse sentiments:




Some trim in crisp white and a felt heart. I had to add a pin with a pearl:)




And my favorite papers from the Girls' Paperie:



Have a great day and stay out of the rain if you can....

Stella


And thank you ladies of CCCB for making me a spotlight artist again!

Your card is beautiful, Stella. I LOVE those papers...so pretty together. Your felt heart with stitched button and pearl pin are sweet embellishments:)
Sorry you got wet through. Typical that it stopped raining the moment you walked through he door. It's poured down here all day, but we need it, as there is a national drought xx

Regen! Ach meisje toch, ik kom je vrijdag wel even troosten ;-) Wat een prachtig kaartje, en schattig bloemetjespapier! En weer zie ik dat lieve potje staan, wanneer ga je naar I...? Neem mij dan ook een paar mee als je wilt heb toch net een envelop van Marjan gehad vandaag! Ga nu echt de borderstempels bestellen die ik je vanmiddag laat zien, kunnen we weer uitwisselen. Morgen zit ik lekker in m'n hokkie eens kijken of ik wat kan fabriceren.

Fijne avond!
Liefs Thea

It has been showers all week here too and heavy ones at that - even had some hail at the weekend. Yesterday we had weather reminiscent from each season - was freezing cold with gale force winds in the morning, raining when I took the kids to school and like summer when I picked them up !
Anyway back to the important stuff - you're beautiful card ! Lovin' that gorgeous girly paper (added to wish list :)) and the felt heart is just precious x
Thanks for the lovely comment you left on my blog angel x
((hugs)) Suzie xoxo

Gadverdamme! Waarom is het altijd zo heerlijk om onder de douche te staan en zo vreselijk om in de regen te lopen/fietsen? ;-) Maar goed, daar gaan je haren van krullen zeggen we dan maar ha ha ha! Wat een gezellig vrolijk kaartje heb je gemaakt, kan zó in een PIP-vitrine!! Schattig met dat kleine hartje erop! Liefs, Ira xox
Helen said…
Sounds like you're having similar weather to us - it's been pouring down quite heavily the last couple of days. Hope you're OK apart from that ;). Your card is just so beautiful Stella - I love every single little bit of it!! Gorgeous papers, stamping and trims and that gorgeous felt heart - too cute!! Love the country charm of this. Big hugs x
Gosh, that's pretty! Gingham and flowers go soooo well together. :) Your friend should adore it.

Hey, could you send some rain over here to New Jersey USA? We are 6" under where we should be!

Very pretty, Stella. They are my favourite papers too. Have a great weekend.xxxx
Audrey Pettit said…
I am getting a chuckle over your rain story, Stella! Not that you got drenched, of course, but just the irony of it stopping right after you got home. It just figures, doesn't it?
Your card is really adorable! Your friend is going to love it. That paper is just so pretty. I'm still hoarding quite a bit of that line. Love the white trim and the felt heart. The little stick pin is so sweet. Fabulous sentiment, too!
