Hallo lieve allemaal,
Vandaag een slinger met de naam van onze jongste kleindochter.
Slingers als deze zijn superleuk en eenvoudig te maken.
Ik heb er al heel wat gemaakt op verzoek en als verjaardagscadeautje.

Hello everyone,
Today a name banner I made for our youngest granddaughter.
Banners like this one are quite easy and super fun to make.
I made quite a few already on requst as well as birthday presents.

Have a Heart....

Hallo lieve allemaal,
Het is binnenkort weer Valentijnsdag, dus tijd om eens een keer een rode kaart te maken....lekker out of my comfort zone omdat ik (zoals jullie weten) vooral werk met pasteltinten...
De stempel is misschien niet echt Valentijn, maar toch....
De kaart is ook terug te vinden op de Quietfire Design blog.

Hello everyone,
With Valentine's Day coming up in a couple of weeks, I thought it was time to make a red card....a bit out of my comfort zone for (as you know) I mainly use pastel colours...
Maybe not a typical Valentine's text stamp, but anyway...
This card is also to be found on the Quietfire Design blog

International Ambassadors Blog Hop time!

Hello everyone,
Some of the International Ambassadors are having an informal blog hop.
This time the theme is favourite season.
Well...actually I like all 4 seasons, spring with everyhing coming to `life`again, summer for long evenings, summer weather and flowers, autumn for the colourimg of the leaves and the first sit in front of the fire place and winter for the fresh air when it has frozen, snowflakes falling and walks through a white forrest.
So it was difficult to choose! I chose spring for that is the coming season.

Materials used:

Don't forget to hop to the blogs of the other IA team members for more great inspiration!
The IA team members participating in this blog hop are:

Wishing you lots of fun bloghopping!
I am looking forward to your comments.

p.s. later today I will announce the winners of the Season's Greetings Blog Hop.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
