WOYWW 109 – Thanks

Afgelopen week was er, hier op mijn blog, te lezen dat we net terug zijn van vakantie. Maar wanneer alles weer zijn eigen routine begint te krijgen is het ook weer gelijk druk. Vandaar dat ik dit bericht wat korter probeer te houden.

Last week you read that we were just back from our holiday. But as things get back to normal life soon becomes busy again. So that’s why I want to share a short story today.

Op mijn bureaublad kun je, deze week, de materialen zien die ik heb gebruikt voor het maken van mijn House Mouse kaart. Color Box Inkt in verschillende kleuren om de achtergrond mee te sponzen. Espresso Adirondack Inkt voor het stempelen van de bloemen en letters en een klein stukje Stamping Board om de rechter bovenhoek van mijn kaart een extra accent te geven.

On my desk you can see all the things I’ve used for my House Mouse card. Color Box Ink in different colours to sponge my background. Espresso Adirondack Ink for stamping the flowers and letters and a small piece of stamping board to give an extra accent in the right corner of my card.

Soms wil ik wel eens een kaart maken met een knipoog.... en dit is zo'n kaart.
Op deze kaart is House Mouse te zien, wonend in zijn eigen weiland. Maar wanneer je iets beter kijkt  kun je zien dat hij ons iets duidelijk wil maken. Ik denk dat er, binnen in de kaart, iets heel erg fout aan het gaan is...

...en ja hoor. Hier zit inderdaad een klein probleem. Een andere House Mouse zit te knabbelen aan al die mooie bloemen en grasjes. Wel heel erg ondeugend!

Sometimes I want to make a card with a smile… and this card is one of them.
On the card you can see House Mouse ,who lives in his meadow and when we take a closer look at him, you can see he wants to tell us something. I think there’s something going rather wrong inside the card….

…and yes. There we have the little ‘problem’. Another colleague House Mouse is nibbling on all the lovely grasses and flowers. How naughty!

Toen ik uiteindelijk de kaart klaar had, realiseerde ik me dat de kleuren van de kaart helemaal perfect combineren met de kleuren op het strand.  Dus tijd om de spulletjes te pakken en naar het strand te rijden om een bijpassende foto te maken.

En wanneer we, tot slot, nogmaals naar mijn kaart kijken zien we ook het woordje "Thanks". En dat is wat ik wil zeggen aan al die trouwe lezers van mijn blog. Heel erg bedankt voor het bezoeken van mijn blog en natuurlijk ook voor het achterlaten van al die mooie en lieve reacties... en hopelijk weer tot volgende week.
Oh ja, en wil je graag je eigen bureaublad  laten zien of andere verhalen lezen? Ga dan, via deze WOYWW link, naar de Julia's place en bekijk haar blog eens uitgebreid.

Have a happy & crafty Wednesday.

But when I'd  finished this card I realise the colours I'd used combined perfectly with the colours on the beach. So time to hurry up, go to the beach and take a photo of this card beside the sea.

Take another closer look at my card and you'll discover the word ‘Thanks” and that is what I want to say to all of you, the readers of my blog. Thanks for visiting my blog and giving me such lovely and kind reactions... hopefully see you next week again.
Oh yes, fancy showing your own desk or reading other stories? Pop over to Julia’s place and find out more about WOYWW. Just follow this WOYWW link.

Have a happy & crafty Wednesday.
