Cardfolder with Magnolia

This cardfolder is made after an idea on the blog of Moni A while ago I went with Agnes to Ingeborg. We had a lovely day crafting and chatting ;-))
Agnes had brought the information from the cardfolder, and we got it in a beautiful holder she made for us!!! This girl is always so sweet!!!
Ingeborg gave us so much to eat and drink, we had enough for the next day. Ingeborg so many thanks for your hospitality!!! We had a great and fun day!!
We also made a card, I show that one in a next post.

friday sketchers

This one I made on my short vacation in the Netherlands. So you can see I used again the same paper!!! And the card is still different than the other ones..... Do I really need all that stuff at home ;-))
Loved to work with this sketch, the sketches are making that you try something different than you usually do.
Because of the school vacation it is very busy here!! That is why I am not leaving comments at the moment. Normally I try when I join a sketch to leave a comment with all participants, but I can not find the time to do this at the moment.
After the 18th of August I will be able to comment as usual!!
Thank you all for looking and leavind such nice comments.

Friday Sketchers 10 met Sarah Kay

Can't believe it is week 10 already!! And so many entries every week, thank you all for joining us. Till week 8 I had time to give a comment on all entries, but because it is summervacation over here, I don't manage to do that every week. Hope I will have time after the vacation again, love to see what you all make of it, it is a great inspiration for me!! This weeks sketch is from Heidi, it was a great one to work with. This time I did the stitching with pink... Think it is ok.
I used bling cardstock for the pink one, that gave me a lot of trouble to make a good photo of it!!

Friday Sketchers 9 met Magnolia

Week 9!! The sketch from this week is from Carole!! As soon as I saw this boy stamp I knew I would use him for this sketch.... But I wouldn't let hem play music all for himself, so it became a little szene. There for the card is grown a little bit bigger, it is 19x19 cm. It fits in an A4 envelop.

Because I have not enough time to do all the great challenges I like, I thought for a long time, I need to go and combine more challenges!! So many talented girl do that, till now it did not work for me. Now I finally can do that, it is more luck that it fits also in the theme Great Outdoors from Cute Cards Thursdays! When I would have planed it, I think it didn't work out. You find them here http://cutecardthursday.blogspot.com/

Toffifee "Thank You" gifts for the teachers!

Today it is the last schoolday for my youngest sun, tomorow for the other one. So time for gifts for the teachers and busdriver! Had to make 8 of them. This year we did Toffifee, the first three are inspired on cards I did before. The last one is for the youngest favorite teacher! She loves black, pink and blue even her hair is always black with a little pink or blue. I coloured the paper with reinkers from Vivid and Distress Inkt. Had fun making them!!
The idea of making the outside of a Toffifeebox have I seen on many blogs and in the magazine Cards Only, but I really don't know who's idea it was!!
