You felt it!

Well hello there!
Just like all of you life is busy around here.

I received some good news recently. In 2006 I passed my exams for a diploma which now is equal to the current diplomas required in the financial services. ( I am working at an insurance company)
That means I still have to learn but but it's less compared to what I have been learning the last few months.. (And the exams are not that difficult.)
I  have to learn and make exams for what they call here  "Permanent Education". It's a sort of annual update and I have to prepare for 4 small exams. I already signed in for two exams at March, 14th and March 21. The last two exams are planned for April, 12th. It still means learning but not as much and the books are a lot thinner:) I just got them today; one book contents 50 pages  and the other one 98 pages (including the cover and pages to jot down notes hee hee).

 Enough of that; on to my card! 

A fun challenge started today at the City Crafter Challenge Blog.
We are supposed to use felt on our projects.
Here is the fab photo inspiration:

I am ready for spring and made a card in bright and fresh colors. 

These papers from the Girls Paperie are on my faves and I never ever get tired of using them:)

I used a few banner dies:

The felt embellishments were a Christmas gifr from Ros
Just a touch of red; used as an accent or an embellishment is enough for me.That's ok :)

I also had to make a small tag; and I love how it turned out.
And the big birthday sentiment is from Waltzingmouse stamps:

I have some serious catching up to do with blog visits:)

Have a lovely evening!

Nou Stel, dat is hartstikke mooi voor je, dat je niet zo hard en zwaar in de boeken hoeft!
Je kaart is weer, ja, wat zal ik nou weer eens verzinnen... om van te kwijlen gewoon.

Oh, Stella, these are so very pretty! Yes, the papers are gorgeous, and I love the butterfly and the flower. The banners are perfect too. A lovely spring-like project. I can't wait for spring, but we have snow forecast for here again tomorrow. Do you know, I have one of those plant holders too, exactly like the one in your photo! It lives on my craft room window sill.

Good luck with your exams,

Lynne xx

Lekker joh, weer een beetje lucht... ! Dit papier is inderdaad erg gaaf! Toch een beetje rood, maar wel zo dat het mooi vindt. Gaaf hoor, de kaart met het lieve vlaggenlijnje, maar ook de tag aan het schattige potje.
