Catching Up

Last Saturday, some of my cards were featured on this blog. In case you want your creations to be shown here, you need to mention that you used their products on your blog as they do a random search on Google for their products and see what they find.

The past week, the children had their half term break off school, hence my lack of blogging. Tomorrow Renee will be back, but Ruben and Rebecca have yet another day off.

Today, Ella, the youngest daughter of my friend Claire is celebrating her 4th birthday. Happy Birthday, Ella! I hope you'll have a lovely day. I made this card for her:

Supplies: Bazzill Basics Cardstock | Imaginisce PPs | ribbon unknown | Hero Arts Clear Stamp and rubber background stamp | VersaColor ink | Staz'On ink | Martha Stewart border punch.

Earlier this week, my good friend Gill her husband was celebrating his birthday. I knew he was home alone, as Gill went to visit her mum with the children. To cheer him up, I made him a bright card:

Supplies: Bazzill Basics Cardstock kraft| October Afternoon PPs, alphabet stickers and die cut border | American Crafts ribbon | Hero Arts clear and rubber stamp | Fiskars star and circle punch | Staz'On ink black | VersaMark ink | buttons spotlight.

As is was also half term in Holland, friend's of ours, who used to live just round the corner, and now live in Holland were over for a long weekend to see her dad and sister. Before traveling back on Tuesday they came to visit us too. I had the opportunity to take a lovely picture of the children while they were here. It was great seeing them again and we're hoping to see them again when we visit Holland in the Summer.

Last but not least, a couple of weeks I made a lay-out that I haven't shared with you yet...

The journaling is in Dutch and reads:

 It is still always a special moment when all seven of us are together. It only happens once every five years, as two of us don't live in Holland any more. Meanwhile our friendship goes back 17 years, when we first met each other. And despite the fact that we don't see each other regularly, our connection is indestructible.
When Jessica emailed us in January that she was coming over for a week, I didn't hesitate and booked a flight as well. Laughing until your cheeks and tummy hurt. We can savour this moment for the next few years. Of course this noteworthy occasion had to be recorded.

Supplies: Bazzill Basics Cardstock | 7Gypsies PPs | American Crafts felt flowers | ribbon unknown | Making Memories glitter alpha stickers and die cut shapes | lace unknown | Heidi Swapp date stamp | Martha Stewart border punch | Prima Marketing brad | SEI buttons.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend. And thank you for stopping by and all your lovely comments.
