Sunday evening already!
It was a fun weekend. 
With some shopping, cooking 
and working in the garden. 
Summer is back and we had a warm and sunny day.
And I enjoyed having dinner and my coffee in the garden:)

I love it when I can mix supplies from different brands. 
And this time it turned out a bright birthday card.

Patterned paper from Echo Park, leaf stamp 
 and heart border die from Papertrey Ink. 
The sentiment die cut is from Sn@p 

I added a few sequins and some twine:

Thanks for stopping by!

Last Saturday it was my birthday. 
And I am so thankful 
for all the lovely cards, birthday wishes and gifts.

The photos are not perfect due 
to the cloudy and rainy days we are having here... 
But to give you an idea I am sharing the cards
 and part of the gifts
I received:

Here is a part of the gifts. 
Ros spoilt me rotten with a gorgeous wallet,
 embellishments and typical British sweet treats.
 My sister Jacqueline gave me 
two Mason jars for summer drinks,
 gorgeous quilt fabrics and 
a fab gift box covered in fabric:

And Ros also sent this stunning card.
 She knows how much I love stars and these colors

From my eldest sister Ingrid 
she doesn´t have a blog account 
but she is a creative genius :)

A gem from M@rjan
I fell in love with the design and the flowers

Marit sent me this beauty along 
with gorgeous papers and embellishments

  Ira sent me a lovely necklace 
and this beauty:

From Ilse simply stunning:

Last but certainly not least this fab card from Mariken

Looking back with lots of memories of a wonderful day;
Sweeties you are the best!

Card kit


Where did this week go...saturday evening already!
And I hope your weekend is just as good as ours.

After some shopping in the city and a haircut 
I spent some time doing the laundry and finished ironing.
My laundry basket is empty and that means time for fun things.

I have a few cards today; all made with a card kit 
from my favorite shop. You can find it here->Bij Oma Dee
All these cards were made with the kit from May/Jun.
And there is enough left for at least 7 more cards....

Thanks for stopping by; enjoy your weekend!

All supplies are from the cardkit from "Bij Oma Dee"
I also used:
Papertrey Ink Birthday die and
Leaf die from the "Songbird" set
Little B sentiment die
Heart punch
Enamel dots
