Kleurenkaartenteam Mei: Zwart-Wit/Black-White

Hi there...

It's the last Wednesday of the month, so it's time for the "Kleurenkaartenteam" and this month the colors are "Black-White".

Sometimes you need sympathycards a bit too much in a really short time period :(

Het is de laatste woensdag van de maand, dus tijd voor het "Kleurenkaartenteam" en deze maand zijn de kleuren "zwart-wit".
Soms heb je helaas teveel condoleancekaarten in een zeer korte periode nodig :(

Weeks full of PARTY!!

Hi there!

Well... the people in The Netherlands had some fantastic parties last 1,5 week :)

It all started the 30th April when our Queen, now Princess, Beatrix abdicated and her son Willem-Alexander became our new king.
The whole country was in an enourmous partymood.

The abdication and inauguration was live on the telly, followed by an evening tour on the water, seeing things we're known for and the king loves, like sports, singing, etc.
It was a day to remember! Just loved it!

Normally we're celebrating Queen''s Day on the 30th April, but now it will be King's Day from now on on the 27th April, Willem-Alexander's birthday.

On the 1st and 2nd May the Nieuwe Kerk in Amsterdam, where the inauguration took place, was open to the public, so I went to Amsterdam with my dad.
It was WOW!!!! I just looooooooove flower bouquets and these were just fantastic to see (and smell!).

Here are some photos of that day...


We also remembered the people who died during the 2nd World War on 4th May and on 5th May it was again time to party :)
As that's the day we're celebrating WW2 ended in 1945 and having loads of freedom nowadays.

And now to my projects.... I made a "Dutch" celebration card.
Not only to celebrate our new king and 5th May, but also for someone who will graduate or something... don't know yet ;)

So here it is...

And we're not finished partying yet in The Netherlands, as next Sunday it will be Mother's Day.... so mom... here's my card for you :)

Thanks so much for coming over and hope to see you later on :)

Christmas Cards {with Sketches} #72 My sketch :)

Hi there and welcome back!

It's time for another CCWS... we're at #72 already and it was my turn to provide the sketch :)
I kept the sketch quite simple, but, if you look at all the great cards that are made by the DT of CCWS... it's great for more embellishments as well.

Anyways.... here's my card...
Told you I would be back with some more snowflakes ;)

And a detailshot...

I heat embossed the text... it was a while ago since I did this... should do it more often :)

Anyways... check out the CCWS-blog for more inspiration from my fellow DT-members... they rock.... and when you're there... please join in.... Thanks! :)

Thanks for coming over and see you around later on!

Sometimes... (part 2)

Hi there again *lol*

And here's my 2nd card I created late this evening/early morning ;)
Quite a different one than the one overhere, but I so love it as well!

I used snowflake stamps, but they are so very versatile, I used them as, uhhmm... decoration :)

And here's my card...

And a detailshot...

Guess the colors aren't showing correctly... I used Stampin'Up's Rose Red. Love that color... it's so sparkling (well... at least irl that is :))!

Thanks so much for coming over again and hope to see you later again today as there will be a new skecth challenge at Christmas Cards {with Sketches} and this time I created the sketch :)

I have an idea in my head when I should be sleeping... (almost 2 am here *whoopsie*!!)
So after seeing some challenges I wanted to participate in last week, I had no idea, so thought I should skip them.... but then.... this evening...

I just knew I had to get out my lovely snowflakes stamps again (more of that later today ;)).... and here's my first card...

And a detailshot so you can see the dimension of the card as well ;)

Thanks so much for coming over... I'm already planning a new post for just in a couple of minutes ;)

Sunshine is here... time for a winter card :)

Hi there!

Finally the sun is shining... it's still windy, but on my balcony it already is nice to sit with a tshirt instead of wearing a winter jacket ;)

Needed some cards for someone who's already ordered Christmas/Wintercards, and this is one of them...

And a detail...

Thanks so much for coming over and hope to see you later on :)
