City Crafter #367

Good morning!

There is a new challenge
waiting for you at the  City Crafter.
 This week Marina is our host  and she picked the theme:

"Hashtag City Crafter"

Create a project anduse social 
media symbols, such as # or @ 
Or an icon such as the t for Twitter
 or f for Facebook.


Recently I bought the Perfectly Penned 
set from Concord and 9th. 
A perfect fit for this weeks' theme:

It took a bit of math to create this card:) I stamped all the words on a piece of scrap  paper to measure the length of the words. After that I stamped my card.  It's a  simple shaker card;  I paired up black, white and silver:

A little bit of the things

that kept me busy:)  This a LONG post!
But first:
and her husband are coming to Groningen! I am on cloud nine :) Ros' husband is a big (football) fan of Everton. Everton was going to play  against Groningen on July 22st. But after Ros made flight and hotel reservations  the mayor cancelled the match. But still; they are coming.  Maybe not a football match to enjoy but  we will take them on a bit of sight seeing   and some lovely dinners. And have a few good chats and lots of laughter! My men are also excited. Our youngest son Martijn went  to Liverpool in 2015 and is looking forward to  catch up with his second mum!
My absence (sorry) is due to a few things... Here is my round up from June 1st till now...
I made elderflower syrup:

 I also made a few batches of granola:

I attended a workshop at Bij Oma Dee. We made interactive cards;  in fact I only made one :) Judith taught us how to make them:

We celebrated the 60th birthday  of one my sisters, I visited family, a few friends and  went out for dinner with

City Crafter #366

Hello and good morning!
It's my turn to host this weeks' 
challenge at theCity Crafter. I picked the theme:
"Frame it "

Create a project and add a frame. For example: you can use you dies,  doodle a frame or use your washi tapes.
I used my square stitched  dies to create a frame:

(The quality of my photos is a bit blurry due to cloudy weather and rain...)
I used a new SU set: "Colourful Seasons". I love the font of these sentiments  and the coordinating Bear Chair die:

You can find more inspiration from the other team 
members onour blog.

Shaker cards

A while ago Cornelie showed me how to 
make a shaker card. And they are fun to create! A few weeks ago I made a shaker card for
Kirsty. You can find it HERE.
But before I made Kirsty's card 
I made another shaker card.  And it's about time to share it:

The sequin mix is from Studio 92. The sentiment stamp and die  are from Sugar Pea designs. Gingham paper from MFT. And as usual; a sequin :)
I sent it to Miranda and she really liked it!  Thanks for stopping by; have a great day! Stella
