And here is my card for today.
On the off-white cardstock i put a paper from Fancy Pants called Little Sprout and i used my new Martha Steward punch. Love this one.

Colord Tilda with my Derwent pencils and cut her out with a nestabilitie. Distressed the borders with distress ink. The gorgeous lace is from a local shop.

Cut out the hearts with a Marianne creatable and used some flowers from my stash. Here is a better look at the beautiful lace.

Distressed the ticket with Vintage Photo and crinckled (?) it a bit.

Well, that's it. I'm going to my parents to take a good long shower and than of to bed. Catch you all soon.

My sister

Woohoo, it's friday and i am so looking forward to the weekend. Long hours of sleep (i hope) maybe some breakfast in bed (wink, wink to my hubby) and......... a bit of cleaning. Mainly the floors, those men with there big workingshoes, it's one big mess over here. One more week and then they are ready and than, in march, they come back for all the windows, new glass and everything.

But now, for something completely different...... My sister, Martine, is a cardmaker aswell and since one week she finally has a blog of her own. Maybe some of you want to welcome her in blogland? That would be so awesome. Thanks so very much. If you click her name you will be linked to her blog.

Well, i have an other card ready and as soon as the pictures are made, i will put it on my blog.

Wishing everybody a fantastic weekend.

Daisy & Dandelion

Hi Girls,

Today i made a card with a decoupage sheet of Daisy & Dandelion, aren't they the cutest?
It's a simple card, just some off-white cardstock, some pink with a border of my Marta Stewart punch, a hearth-doily and a big flower.

On the next picture you can see that it was a long time ago since i made a card with decoupage. Have to remember that next time i must take a better look on where i put the next paper.

Just a little update about our bathroom, can you imagine the noise that it made yesterday and today. It was just awefull, the tilles on the wall where down in one our but the floor.... they had to use a drillboor ( i don't know if this is english) . Still having a headache from it.
Well, just one more week and that it will be finished and beautiful.

I love you

Finally i had some time to get crafty and boy did i missed it.
Last saturday i had an workshop at my local craftstore given by Nicole Verkooijen : coloring with flexmarkers. It was so much fun and we learned a lot, but i have to practice hard, verry hard.

I used 1 paper and it's called Red Checkert by Classic Collection. The border is made with a Martha Stewart punch and i distressed all the borders with Vintage Photo.
That big heart is from my stash and i think it was from Raher. I painted it with distress crackle paint Picket Fence.

Here you can see the crackles a bit better.
A few roses and pins and behind the heart a bit of non-woven compress.

The ticked is from my local craftstore and i distressed the borders with Vintage Photo and so the border of the heart.

Here you can see the coloring i did on Edwin. I think you still see to much shades, it doesn't flow from the one color into the other.

Well, that's it from me, hope you like what you see, just let me know.
Hope to get crafty again tomorrow, they are busy in my bathroom for the next two weeks, so no housecleaning for me for a few days. Joehoeeee.

Till next time.
