City Crafter #351

Good morning!
It's time for a new challenge
at the City Crafter.
 This week Marina is our host and she picked the theme:


Hygge is a Danish term for creating a cozy atmosphere and enjoying the simple things in life. 
Create a project that captures the spirit of Hygge, or take inspiration from the photo:


I am fan of scandinavian design.Simplicity, white, wood... I just love it.The sentiment I used is a perfect match with "enjoying the simple things in life":

The sentiment is from Papertrey.I stamped a shelf, lamp and books using a new set from Stampin'Up:

If you hop over toour blogyou'll find the projects from  the other team members.

Thanks for stopping by andenjoy your day!

Practice, practice, practice.......

Imagine my surprise and delight when my husband came home with a lovely gift.He bought me a set of Gansai Tambi paints.Yes I know; he's a keeper:)
Watercolouring is quite new to me.Last year when I was in Liverpool Rosoffered me the chance to try them.I fell in love:)
Watercolouring means a lot of practice and it's fun! 
I started my card with a background which Istamped with Versamark and heatembossed it with white embosing powder.I started painting with simple brush strokes and added a sentiment:

Subtle shades, squares and some stiched dies:

I am entering this card in the current challenge at the AAA cards challenge.The theme is "watercolour"

It's the kind of weekend that I love the most:nothing planned and lots of timeto create a few cards. Today I am sharing one of these cards.
Sometimes you need a quick and easy cardbecause you ran out of time. Shades of blue for a birthday boy.The sentiment is from MFT and the balloon is from PTI:

Very CAS and easy to make:

Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely Sunday!

City Crafter #349

Good morning!

It's Tuesday and that means
a new challenge at theCity Crafter Challenge blog.

Today Kirstyis our host
and she picked the theme:

"Old stuff, new look"


Take an old project and give it a new look.
 It could be a project that you 
made and wasn't happy about.
Or you could duplicate one of your old creations
 and add something to give it a new look.

Our Guest designer is Magic Flyer Boots.

To see more of her creations you can clickHERE.

I made this card in 2015:

Back then I was pleased with this card.It's CAS and I loved the colour combo.Looking at this card right now I decided it needed a bit more white:)And a sentiment in a modern font. But first...more white:

I used a stitiched die; it was one of the Christmas gifts from Ros. And I LOVE it.The apple die is from Papertrey Ink.A sentiment in a modern font and of course some twine.Same get well wishes but a totally different card:


Simple style

It's a beautiful and sunny Sunday but it's so darn cold here!We went out for a long walk (a bit more than 8 kilometres/5 miles)and it's lovely to come homeand have a hot cup of coffee:)
I made a card with the Scripty Sayingdies and stamps from Lawn Fawn.And added a little heart; although it's not a Valentine card:)

I love the font of this sentiment:

Thanks for stopping byand enjoy your Sunday!
Stay warm:)

City Crafter #348

Good morning!
It's time for a new challenge
at the City Crafter.
 This week Marina is our host and she picked the theme:



Marina asks us to create a project and 
use an envelope or letter. 

We are having Jenny Martin
as our guest designer
You can see more of her creations on herblog.

I had a few ideas, tried a few 
things but wasn't pleased.
You could say I struggled a bit...So I asked Rosfor advice;She knows me well and came up 
with a few great ideas.

I made a card using Lawn Fawn stamps and plaid paper from My Favorite Things:

I could use it for a birthday, 
wedding anniversary or even a Valentine card.A clean and simple card; my favorite style:)

If you hop over toour blogyou'll find the projects from 

Blue happiness

If you have been following me for a while you know that there are a few things that I LOVE.And one of them is the colour BLUE.
Back in April 2015 we visited our son Martijn in Liverpool and I was so lucky to meet my dear friend
We had a few wonderful days and Ros and her husband took us on a trip in the country.We enjoyed a terrific lunch in the pub in Bunburyand sitting at the table myeye caught this gorgeous blue jug. The moment I saw it I loved it; but it was not for sale and I never found it in the shops...
Imagine my delight and surprise when a box from Ros arrived with that jug!She looked everywhere and found it.Now it's here on my coffee table and I am on cloud nine:)

Ros thank you so so much; you really made my day! 

Also blue but something different...Remember the creative date  I had a few weeks ago?This card is made with one of the Gelli prints:

Different shades of blue but I love it:
