50 years

We are experiencing a bit of winter here (according to Dutch stndards) and the weatherforecast says there is snow coming our way. Sipping from my tea on this Sunday afternoon;  a perfect time for a post and some blogging!

Last friday, the husband  of my sister Jacqueline celebrated his 50th birthday. We could not join the party but I did send a card. 
Masculine cards are still challenging for me and I hope to improve my skills on masculine cards in 2013. 
I kept it quite simple; I tried to create something as CAS as possible. Another challenge hee hee!

Fishtails and banners are my fave item to add to a card lately and this card is no exception.


A bit of brown, grey and green and a button. Papers from MME. 
Felt numbers, twine and button from my stash.







Enjoy your sunday, stay warm ...
Till soon,
Stella

Haha... "a bit of winter"...
Nou, hier sneeuwt het weer de hele middag,ijskoud, guur... je ziet geen kip op straat! Van mij hoeft het niet, morgen weer het verkeer ontregeld, ook al is het in een park nog zo mooi.
Maar goed... je kaart is prachtig! Voor jouw doen best clean, toch? Maar ook dit gaat je goed af.

Hij is mooi geworden, Stella! Leuke patronen bij elkaar zo. Ben benieuwd of de sneeuw ook nog bij jou aan komt, ik was de sneeuw eigenlijk al wel weer zat, maar ja... Toch weer wit, ha ha!
Groetjes, Wendy

Je zult wel denken, waar blijft dat mens nou, nou, hier dus hi hi hi! Veel te druk de laatste tijd, even iets anders doen tussendoor, jouw blog bezoeken bijvoorbeeld ;-) Is toch een stoere kaart geworden voor je zwager! Vind de papiercombi echt mooi en er zit toch nog iets aaibaars in in de vorm van vilt! Liefs, Ira
