Hi everyone,

I hope you all have had a nice week and have enjoyed the wonderful weather. I did, because I spent a lot of hours in the garden. Everything must be made ready for the summer and the garden is very large, so a lot of work. Despite the work it is lovely to be outside again to see everything growing for a new summer.

That is why I created this week just a small card for the birthday of a little football boy.
Though it is a simple card, I like it. It always difficult to create a card for boys about ten years, but if you know something about their hobbies, you can usually find something to make.

I wish you all a very nice weekend and I love of course to read your nice and sweet reactions.

With love from Holland

Hello everyone, time for my new creation. This time I have designed a new model card for you.
One of the challenges this week was " make an easelcard". Well everyone know them, but only with one easel. After a lot off puzzling I have made an double one.
The commands this week are very different from each other. But I'm succeeded to make everything in one  card. And this is my result.


If you understand what I mean.

My inspiration comes from a Dutch children's Easter song about two hares.

'k Zag twee hazen vlak voor pasen 
samen in een weiland.
Met een mandje vol met eitjes
aan het verven met z'n beidjes.
Kijk eens hier, kijk eens daar
nu zijn alle eitjes klaar. 

I saw two bunnies just before Easter
together in a meadow.
With a basket full of eggs 

painting together
Look here, look there

now all eggs are ready.

I post this card to:
MDUC, old treasures:   Beads from an old beadsbox of my mother. Two old brushes and paint of my granddaughter.
Moeders Hobby Paleis, paars
It's a Magnolia challenge, easel card, of stepcard
Just Magnolia, more than one fold
Magnolia Licious challenge: colour challenge

Stamps: Magnolia
Paper: Graspaper Pipoos, Easter eggs Antique paper.
Colored with copics.
Ribbon and voile.
Nest with easter chicken, eggshell,  Zeeman.
Flowers and embellisments, own stock.

I have made a double easelcard (own design).
I've stamped with the mask technique and pasted some parts D3. The beads on the blue flowers are pasted with D3kit and the other blue flowers are embroidered with beads. The flowers in the top of the Easteregg are pasted in an eggshell.

For this time. have a nice weekend and till next time
Of course I'm really very curious you like my new model card and hope to receive a message from you about it.

With love from Holland,

Good evening all of you,
This time a smal little design. After my guestdesign butterfly and the happy birthday girly card I didn't know what to do. I finished all my work and posted everywhere. Than I saw on the side of Magnolia Mania a nice little  craft command, "make a flowerpin". So I did and it was real fun to make it. Afterward I know,  I'll make more of them, because it's a very nice present with a bunch of flowers.

As always I  am very curious to hear if you like my flowerpin and hope you leave me a message  on my blog. Till next time, have a nice week  and thank you for coming.

with love from Holland,


Stamp: Magnolia
Paper: Action Store
Flowers: webstore Luzifi

 Hello everyone from here and there,

This time a have something special for you. I won a guestdesign in the TOMIC by Magnolia in Sweden. Totally unexpected with my lamb "Snowflake in purple symphony". One of my followers send me an email and congratulated me with my victory. I was flabergasted and looked at the side of Magnolia and saw my winning lamb.
That's why I believe that this bottle of champagne belongs here. No this is just kidding, the real reason of this bottle is the command that I got from Magnolia.

"Make a decoration on a bottle, there on must be at least 2 butterflies"

So I decided to make a butterfly. I am curious what you think of my butterfly. It would also be very nice to hear aspecially from the foreigners a comment. There are quite many people from Russia and Romania who often view my blog and I love to get a reaction from them. Outside English I speak good German and Spanish, so the language is not a problem.

This was it for this time, I hope you liked it, have a good week and until the next time.

With love from Holland,
