Second hand store and a card

Last week I went to the second hand store in IJsselstein. I usually go there once a week and last time I found this gorgious crochet tablecloth, this cute little basket (which I filled with fake apples I already had) and this glass jar filled with eggs and feathers. It looks really nice in my home, so I was very happy with it.
The card was made for friends of ours who are expecting their first child in a couple of months. I used scraps of paper, some stickers, a fiber and "blingbling". Wish you a nice day and thanks for visiting my blog. xxx Wendy.

How sweet is this!!

This RAK was send to me by Daan. It seems Ingrid had won it, but asked Daan to send it to me...
Thank you so much, both of you! Don't know what I did to deserve it, but I am sure you will tell me!!
Big hugs to both of you...xxx Wendy.

Sorry, forgot to show you this....

I made this card for my niece who will be swimming for her A-diploma next saturday. The forummeeting last saturday got me in the card-scrapping mood. I used a very cute Magnolia stamp and I am very pleased with how this card turned out...Hope Celica will too.....

Creations Forummember day 24-11-2007

These are the projects we made last saturday in Ede at Scrappen Doe Je Zo. The lo at the left was made by all of us, kind of a round robin-thing....I didn't like doing that....
The card on the right bottom was made by BepV, she makes gorgious cards and I wanted to take a picture of it...
The rest was created by me....
We had a great day, but I'm not feeling very well for a few days now, so I will show you the pics we took of the meeting later this week...Wish you all the best and thanks for visiting my blog. xxx Wendy.

One card, one gift and some home made embellishments

The "thinking of you" card was made for me by Ingrid. She wanted to wish us well...my father in law his foot had to be amputated, so....we could use a little support. Thanks very much girl, I really appreciate this and I am very thankfull for you thinking of us....(If you want to know what kind of materials Ingrid used, check her blog).

The blue card was made by me for Annika, she is a member of the designteam at Scrappen Doe Je Zo. She has had an accident and broke several bones. It will take her a while to heal, so to wish her well, I will send her this card.
Materials used: blue cardstock, pages of an old English book I turned into flowers, DaisyD's papers, lace, ribbons and a pinheadneedle).

With the same materials I made some flowers for the forummeeting we will have tomorrow from the Scrappen Doe Je Zo website in Ede. We will take a grouppicture and have a sort of roundrobbin making a layout which will be handed over to the person next to you who will work on it for ten minutes and then hand it over to the person sitting next to her. In the end we will have been working on each and every layout for every member there. Think it will be a lot of fun...

I will be very busy this weekend so I don't think I will be able to post anything here before monday....So I wish all of you a very nice weekend and see you next week...xxx Wendy.

Creative kids....

This weekend my father in law, who broke his foot a week and a half ago, was brought back to the hospital because his foot was very smelly and he was still being sick...He is a diabetic so it is important he stays under medical control. When they opened the cast around his wound, it looked and smelled really bad. It turned out he has an infection in his bone and it's not sure yet if he can keep his foot, it may be amputated....He was operated again and will be today too...We still hope his foot can be saved...Dad, we wish you all the best and hope your foot will heal.

My sons made a card for their granddad and I loved them for doing so. My oldest son really hates everything "crafty" so I was really proud of him for still creating this wonderful card for his granddad...

And ofcourse I made him a card too, hehe....

Three cards and Scrapdelight

My brother and sil were married for eleven years yesterday, so I made these three cards for their anniversary. The two "congrats"cards were given to them with MediaMarkt giftcertificates, so they can buy something they like on their own.
This is what I bought at Scrapdelights open house this morning. The papers are from: Arctic Frog, Urban Lily, Basic Grey, Rhonna Farrer, Chatterbox, Crate Paper, Autumn Leaves and K&Company. I also bought Designer Eyelets/Snaps from WeRMemorykeepers: Love, Family and Inspiration. It was really nice to have met Michelle and her design team in person and I had a lot of fun. Hope to see you soon again, have a nice weekend, xxx Wendy.

Adress book and a card...

Yesterday my scrappingfriend Ingrid came to my house for a crop and I made this card and this adressbook, which contains all the adresses I have of different forummembers. Thought it would be easy so I wouldn't ask them over and over again for their adress. I used Basic Grey paper and K&company, different ribbons, fibers, rhinestones, stamps and lace...so now I can start on my minibook, which is lying here for about six months or so for me to finish it...xxx Wendy.

Rip up those jeans

This is a mini book I made from my boys ripping up our youngest ones jeans....When ever they have a hole in their pants, they can rip it up. You can imagine the fun they are having then.
I used stamps, buttons, brads, stickers and some pieces of the jeans that was ripped. The paper I used is from Junkitz , Earth Tone Paperz...
The mini book was shaped like a jeans short...I had a lot of fun making it, wish you fun looking at it...xxx Wendy.
