Up again


Hope you are all enjoying a few wonderful days celebrating Easter!

After some serious computer issues I thought I was back again. But it took a bit longer as expected. Due to a heavy sinusitus and ear infection I am here after having anti biotics. I hope that was all about being ill for this year:)

I have two cards to share; the first card is in time for this weeks' challenge at the City Crafter Challenge the second card was originally planned for the previous challenge but I could not finish that card in time because I was not feeling well.

This weeks' challenge is based upon using a hot air balloon or a regular balloon.
I made a card in advance for one of  my grandnephews who will be three May 15th.
Here is my balloon:

And here is my card:

The previous challenge at CCCB was all about their 4th anniversary. I cased the card with the bike and instead of shabby chic I added a modern twist. I made it for my sister Jacqueline who had surgery.
Here is my card:

Till soon!

Ah jakkes! Dat klinkt niet lekker allemaal zeg! En al helemaal als je aan de antibiotica moet, hopelijk ben je gauw van die rotzooi af! Maar hoe waren de Paasdagen bij jullie? Beetje gezellig geweest? Je kaartjes zien er zéker gezellig uit, heel gezellig zelfs ;-) Prachtige designs, allebei!! Geniet van je avond, liefs, Ira xox
