Hello!

I am here today to kick off the last challenge in this month 
for the 5th birthday of the City Crafter Challenge Blog.

And today I ask you to case my card.

any element from my card 
and make a version that is entirely yours.





The card base is ivory to match the patterned papers.

Back to daily routine

Hello!

It has been ages since I had time for blogging...

We had an AMAZING time in Liverpool with our son Martijn. 
And on top of that....after 5 years meeting Ros!! 
This photo was taken just after we landed in Liverpool:




After 5 years we already knew each other a bit. 
Thanks to blogging, Skype and sending emails. 
In fact; it felt like family. 
We had a fab time together.
Ros and her husband showed as around
 the city and the countryside.
  Liverpool is a wonderful city 
and the countryside is breathtaking. 
On saturday Ros and I spent time in her craft room 
and Pat (Ros' friend ) joined us. 
We laughed and talked and I made just 1 (!!) card.
 Ros told me how to make a shaker card. 
I will share it soon. 

The days went by in the blink of an eye...
Martijn will be in Liverpool till June 
to finish his research project.
 And when he's back home he will graduate from University. 

Back home again there was work and study waiting for me.
 I  made a schedule because learning and getting 
back to school is not that easy as 30 years ago. 
I won't be bored for the next few months :)

I had not much inspiration so I decided to lift a card
 I found at Pinterest

Gossamer Blue

And this is my take.
 Lifting is a great way to get inspired:)



Papers are all from Gossamer Blue; I love love love that Gramercy Road collection; 
which I bought at Bij Oma Dee
Here is my card:




Thank for stopping by!

Supplies

Hello!

Today I have a very fun and exciting challenge for you!!!
Today is the start of a WHOLE MONTH  
to celebrate our 5th birthday here
 at the City Crafter Challenge blog
I started playing along somewhere in 2010
 and became a fan:)
CCCB has always been fun to play along.
 And I am happy that I can spread a bit of the fun
 that CCCB offers to all of us. 
Our team is close and we are easy going:) 

On to our challenge!

On to my cards :
I made two cards; both for a wedding anniversary.
I picked the flowers and the design and cased both:)
The first card is made with a classic touch;
 something the happy couple just loves.
 


And this is my take on her card:




My second card is made with a bit more modern twist and lots of white.
I used vellum with a silver pattern. 
I took a photo from a different angle
 so you can  see the silver




Paired up with white I did not add much more:




On our blog you can find more inspiration from
