Beautiful Peony

 Hello Crafty Friends!

Today I share with you a card I made,

that is inspired by a sudden discovery in my garden:

This beautiful yellow and pink peony was hiding
 in a corner of my garden.
As I live here for 2 Springs now, it must have been here last year too,
but I just did not see it. This peony bush is behind a tree and as you
can see from my hand behind the flower, it is a very large flower.
Because of this they hang underneath the leaves.
On facebook I shared some pictures and got so many comments,
especially about  the color. Yes, this is so special.
I have some red peonies too, but these are not open yet.

For my card I used a flower stamp from Stampin'Up! called
Blended Bloom. The sentiment (congratulations in Dutch)
is a clear stamp from my stash.
The friends background stamp i think is from SU!, but I am not sure.

Thank you for looking
and have a wonderful day!

Cards for the Carehome


Hello Crafty Friends,

I haven't been around for some time. Not because I have not been crafty, but because our computer had crashed and I had no idea how to do this blogging on my ipad. Than I found instagram quite easy to share my cards, so please start follow me there tto (4hetty it is on instagram).

So, what have I been doing?
Not so much challenges, for this reason: postage and VAT!
If  I win something, it means I can choose from a shop, but have to pay my own postage. This is usually from the US to The Netherlands a lot! Then when the package arrives over here I even have to pay taxes. I think you can understand it is no more fun anymore to play along.

Most of my time goes to my volunteer work 
for the carehome my mom is in. 
Every Friday I make cards with a bunch of ladies. 
I love using the stuff I have (it never seems to finish), 
my old stamps and design papers. 
So here you see some cards we are going to make next week 
with the set "You've got this" by Stampin'Up!
Most of the time they manage to make two cards.

I hope you all have a lovely Sunday and hope to
see you soon again!
