Last sunday we found out we were invited to the wedding of a dear friend of ours (they sended the card to nr. 33 instead of nr. 4) so, being a creative girl, I made them a card. I used cardstock, golden webbing, embossed their initials with the Cuttlebug embossing folder Swirls and feathers. The golden rings are made of a golden elastic and tied them up with ribbons....I'm very curious of what you think of it....xxx Wendy.

Cafe mom

I just joined an american scrapbooking club. You can find it at http://www.cafemom.com/ . I mostly joined because I wanted to meet other scrapbookingmoms and would like to expend my scrapfriends abroad....hopefully I will meet a lot of new friends and we can exchange a lot of inspiration....The group I joined is called Scrappin'it & Lovin'it. I'v already made a friend there, think I'm gonna spend a lot of time chatting instead of scrappin'....xxx Wendy.

New cards

I finally was able to make some cards. One is for someone who is pregnant after having lost two children. I really hope she will be able to carry this one out and can hold her healthy baby in her arms in a few months. Vanesca, i wish you all the best, you're in my mind!!

The other one is for one of my scrapbuddies who got a new job when i was in Spain. I wasn't able to congratulate her earlier, so, hereby: Congrats on your new job, Ingrid. Wish you lots of fun and hope you like your new co-workers.

Back in town!!

Hi, yesterday evening we came back from our holiday in Spaign. We have had lots of fun even though the weather wasn't that good everyday. So in stead of relaxing at the beach, we visited various places. One of them was, of course, Barcelona where we went to Parc Gruell and made many pictures on Gaudi's creations. We also went to Scrapate, a scrapbooking store in Barcelona, where i bought very beautifull paper from SEI, Paisley-line, which i intend to use for the pictures we made at the parc. We also went to the Chocolate Museum in Barcelona, but i would never recommend anyone to go there....it was such a dissapointment!! Too bad, but other things we did in the summer made it all worth while. It will take me some time to sort out all the pictures we took and to place it on my blog, so you just will have to wait for them.....sorry.
I will try to make haste with it, so....till next time, love, Wendy.
