Yes, I have a blog

Time runs by and I did think about my blog. Missing it and again postponed. Making time and wishing to have more time. Reading my own blog and want to write. So much went on here and I did what I have to do. No school, but vacation and now having some large projects. I will load up some pics! This project is about upholster old chairs. Nope, I have never done this before, but that is the challenge:) We have collected four chairs now, a table and one medium and a small cabinet. All old stuff, looking antique, but is not. We like the look of these old furniture. It is a big project so when started I'll have to keep it up. But I will take my time doing it, no hurry.

The medium cabinet is done with sandpaper and painted with primer. Saturday I will sand it again with fine sandpaper. And if we agreed to the color of paint, we will be able to paint the cabinet on Sunday. That would be nice, wouldn't it!!

As I said I would do ...

Post the last project I created yesterday. The theme is: use your stash: theme card: fashion. Honestly, this card is not made of stash. I had just fun and it gave me the opportunity to use the Cricut expression in this way again.

That is it for today. Not much to quack about today:)) Oh, forgot to tell that I have received my Moleskin watercolour Notebook! It's a size to carry easy in a bag or so. It measures 8 1/4x5". This will be the one I carry on trips, making my sketches whenever I feel to. No picture of it, because I posted a picture of my first Moleskin. They have the same cover; only the size is different. Still want to see it? Just leave a comment and I will post a picture. So I still wait for the last Moleskin of size A3. 

If you have any question, please leave a comment.

So... what have I done today?

Today was a calm day. After the test I had yesterday, I needed some rest. I don't think the test went very well. But I hope I pass. That's why I started to work on the swap I still have. There is enough time to make them, but I needed to be creative. Here are they; it's quite a few, so take time:))

Handmade Card Challenge

This card is part of a challenge. My first handmade card challenge ever. So I hope I win!
The image is a free image on coloring pages from Sarah Kay. She is printed on GinaK. cardstock and colored with copic ciao and sketch markers. The flower is originally white, but colored with copic sketch markers. The white line is done with my Uniball Signo white gel pen

Use your stash: Theme card: dog/cat


I had to make two cards for one person. So I decided to make one dog and one cat card. Cute, aren't they?
A Whiff of Joy rubber stamp, colored with Prisma color markers. The cat is a Meljen's free digital image, colored with copic sketch and ciao markers. The mat on which the cat is stamped on is cut with my Cricut expression with the help of Make the Cut.

Mojo card sketch (handmade card swap): july
The first swap I ever coordinated. Pfff, I thought it would take a lot of time. No, no, no, just some minutes. Of course I hope everyone keeps to the swap, so there will be no need for me to angel. My card for this Mojo card sketch swap.

The sketch:

The last image for today is for the "Use your stash: theme card: Fashion

At first it seems to be hard, but then I kept creating. Not much to say today, because I am really tired.

For this swap I had to make two cards. It is late and I will make a picture of the other card tomorrow. No, my scan can not handle the card, because it has a handbag which pops up and the picture does not come out very good. So tomorrow I will post the other card for this swap. She is a KennyK. digital image colored with Copic sketch and ciao markers.

I am so satisfied with my creations. I love the different colors and the patterned paper is so cute.

Letter ATC

Huh, what to create with a letter on an ATC? Mmmmh, thinking, thinking, ...... Aha, why not look for something to inspire me? I got it ... Betty Boop will inspire me! How? Take a look at this beautifyl ATC. It will be sent tomorrow.

The picture is not perfect. But you get the idea, I hope:))
