Fun with a kite

Here a card for Virginias Vieuw Challenge blog. The challenge is to make a card with dies. The card itself is inspired by a card I found on Pinterest.
I really love the summery look of this card.

The kite is cut with Die-namics dies and the clouds are cut with PapertreyInk dies. The dotted paper is Jilly Bean Soup and the paper I used for the kite is Bella BLVD "Sunshine and Happiness". The sentiment is put together with a stampset by SSS.

So cool

As I promised before: here is another card using the stampset : " Super cool" from Clearly Besotted. This is what we did in Italy last year, when we had summer vacation; taste a lot of flavours of ice cream. Italians are THE best ice cream makers!

This card is for my niece. She is working super hard, even during summer. Taking extra math classes. She is cool! Hope she can find some time for ice cream!

Ice cream!

Today I like to show you a card I made for the Challenge at Clearly Besotted blog: "Anything goes". I recently bought a stampset from Clearly Besotted were you can stamp a whole lot of different ice creams with. Now, we are ice cream lovers, we even have our own ice making machine! So, when I saw this stampset I immediately knew I wanted to buy it! At this moment I am still experimenting with it. But this is one of my first results.

I am sure there will follow some more ice cream cards!
Hope you like it. Thanks for visiting!

So happy!

I like to shout it out: our daughter Jessica passed her exam VWO! We are so proud of her!

She AND we are so happy! When she got the news, she had to laugh and cry at the same moment. And I was almost crying with her :) I don't know how it is in other countries, but here in the Netherlands we put the bag on the flag and hang it out.

We had a little celebration. I backed her a cherry pie.

And we had Champagne.

On the left our son Casper and on the right Frank, her friend.
And finally the card I made her.

Enjoy your day

Today I finished my last card for the Hero Arts Sketch Challenge of this month. I already made two cards with the first two sketches. This is sketch no.3.

The strip of striped paper is by SEI. All used stamps are by Hero Arts, of course. The circle is made with a die by Spellbinders and the banner is cut with a die from Simon Says Stamp.

Last week I made two cards with the "Forever" stampset by Hero Arts. In this stampset are some lovely butterflies, a beautiful flower and a wonderful tag with a bird on a branch. But that bird on a branch is also a separately stamp, so, on the firts card you can see it twice, if you take a close look.

The second card is quite similar, but I covered the lower branch with a sentiment, and added some music, because of the "singing" bird! I really love to hear the birds sing in this time of year!

This second card is made with a Hero Arts sketch, given for this months "Sketch challenge" on their blog.
