Last week we went to Vlissingen. A city with a harbour at the Dutch coast.

One of the most famous dutch persons in history is born in Vlissingen: Michiel de Ruyter. A welknown dutch admiral. Sailing over the seas of the world. Exploring new land. Born on the 24 of March in 1607.

This a a statue for this amazingly courages person. But you can also visit a museum where you can learn a lot about his live. Last months a filmcrew made a movie about the life of Michiel de Ruyter, and last sunday the funeral of Michiel de Ruyter was filmed in Amsterdam on the Dam. Hope to see this movie when it is ready.
The ships people use nowadays are completely different then De Ruyter saw during his life. What would he say when he saw this?

I think this was more familiar to him.

And a final photo. Beautiful isn't it?!

We had a great day.
Thank you for visiting!

Inspired by...

Happy Friday!
Today I want to show you two cards I made after an example of Lucy,
here at Hero Arts Blog:
I loved the design, the flower, and the shine she added on her flower.
I very close followed her example as you can see here.

For my flower I cut some flowers with my Cricut, using the "Mothers Day" cartridge, out of water coloring paper. I colored it with Distress Ink and water, and than added shine with "Diamond" stickles.
And because it felt so rewarding I made another card, but in a different color.

For this card I also used a Hero Arts sentiment. The dotted paper I used for both cards is from Paper Trey Ink. This flower is also made with cut out flowers from my Cricut and colored with Distress Ink. And than added some "Star Dust" stickles. The "Leafy Flourish" is by "Die-Namics". The pearl brads I found at Xenos.
Hope you liked your visit!

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!
