Autumn Vacation

Last week we had Autumn vacation here in the Netherlands. That means a week off, a visit of the forrest in the middle of the country, and a pancake afterwards. Thats a tradition in our family, and I think in more family's.
I like to share some lovely things we saw around "Het Doornse Gat", a beautiful area for a long walk.

And finally I like to share a card I made especially for a challenge at "Die Cut Diva's." Arlene invited me already several times to insert one of my cards to their challenge, so I thought now was the time to make a card just only for their challenge of this month: "Animal and Autumn".

Honorable mention

Again I got an Honorable mention at CAS-ology Blog. I am very very happy with it! The challenge was to make a card with a pumpkin on it.
Here is my card.

The items on this card are cut with my Cricut machine. I always love to play with it! Gave it a little bit of shading with Copic markers. And the sentiment is Hero Arts.

Last week I came to know that this weeks challenge at CAS-ology blog is to make a card with the word "Crisp" in your thoughts.
At first I only could think of fresh and cool air, just as you can feel in Autumn.
But than I got the idea of asking my family. My daughter thought of snow, and my son thought of crispy chips :)
Finally I went to a dictionary, because I am dutch, and wanted to get a good understanding of the word "Crisp" ! And there I got a whole new understanding of this word! First the dutch word and than the word again in english, wich is so much fun!
Crisp can be:
1. Kroes=woolly, fuzzy ,curlly, mug, cub.
    Gerimpeld=wrinkly, crinkly, rippling, ruffling
2. Bros,Knapperig=crisp, brittle(glas) friable(steen)
3. Knerpend, knisterend= snow, crunch, creack
4. Fris,opwekkend= fresh, cool,air, exiting, stimulating
5. Scherp=sharp- knife,features,tongue,photo,outline
6. Energiek,levendig,krachtig,pittig=

So, you can say, I learned a lot! And when you read this, you got a lesson too! Once a teacher, always a teacher :)
And now my card!

I stayed with my first impression: cool, fresh air,a clear sky with a bright moon.
The design is not my own. I saw such before on internet.Tthe stamps I used are all Hero Arts.

Hope you liked it!

Fall colors

How I love fall colors! The shades of green, yellow and orange are THE best for my eyes! And than the light. It is different, warmer definately!
In our garden we have a tree with red berries. Beautiful! And birds love to eat these berries. They get "drunk" of it, my husband sayed :)

Because I love all whats autumn, I also love the challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays: CFC115 "Fall colors & a leaf".
And with the birds and the berries in my mind I made this card.

Hope you like it!
