WOYWW 151 – Especially for you

Er wordt gezegd dat, na donderdag, in Nederland de lente gaat beginnen, maar eigenlijk maakt het mij niet veel uit.... Hier, met alle WOYWW crafters samen, schijnt vandaag al de zon. Welkom op deze creatieve woensdag - de dag dat je je eigen bureaublad kunt laten zien en vertellen waarmee je bezig bent. Maar wil je meer weten over al dit gebeuren, volg dan deze WOYWW-link en bekijk Julia's blog.

In the Netherlands they say that Spring begins after Thursday, but I don’t care…. Here, together with all you fellow WOYWW, the sun is shining today. Welcome to this crafty Wednesday – the day on which we can show our work desk and tell everyone what we are doing. If you'd want to know more about this, follow this WOYWW link to join in at Julia’s blog.

Voordat ik een foto van mijn werkblad laat zien wil ik eerst diegenen bedanken die vorige week zo'n geweldige reacties op mijn blog hebben achter gelaten. Helaas is het mij niet gelukt om al deze lieve reacties te beantwoorden, maar deze week ga ik een nieuwe poging doen :-)

Before I show you my desk this week I want to say thank you for all the wonderful and lovely reactions I’ve received last week. I’m sorry I didn’t manage to see all your desks too, I'll try to do a better job this week :-)

Vandaag is op mijn werkblad een kaart te zien die ik heb gemaakt voor mijn tante. A.s. vrijdag hoopt zij haar 90st verjaardag te vieren. Voor mij een goede reden om een heel speciale kaart voor haar te maken. Het enige dat nog aan deze kaart moet worden gedaan is het schrijven van een verjaardagswens en die erin plakken.

On my desk today you can see a card I’ve made for my dear aunt. Next Friday she will celebrate her 90th birthday. The perfect reason to make a very special card for her. The only thing I have to left is to write a birthday wish for her and stick it inside the card.

Om deze kaart te maken heb ik gebruik gemaakt van een voorbeeld dat ik vond in een Nederlands kaart- magazine. Verder wilde ik de kaart zo lieflijk mogelijk maken en veel bloemen en kant gebruiken. Dit is niet mijn normale stijl, maar na uren proberen, schuiven en veranderen vond ik de goede balans voor al deze extra's. De stempelafdruk van Magnolia is ingekleurd met Derwent Coloursoft potloden en reukloze terpentine.

For this card I used a pattern I found in a Dutch card making magazine. This card has to be as sweet as possible, covered with lots of flowers and lace. It's not my normal way of working, but after hours of trying, moving and changing I think I’ve found the right balance. The Magnolia is coloured with Derwent Coloursoft Pencils and Sensodor.

In de binnenkant van deze kaart zijn allerlei verschillende theekopjes met schoteltjes te vinden omdat mijn tante het heerlijk vindt om gezellig een kopje thee te drinken. Deze theekopjes en -schoteltjes zijn gestempeld op verschillende patronen dessin papier en daarna boven op elkaar 'gestapeld' - een niet echt eenvoudige klus (alhoewel het wel zo lijkt). De stempel die ik hiervoor heb gebruikt is een gratis stempel van het blad Craft Stamper.

The inside card is filled with lots of tea cups as my aunt loves drinking tea and she has all sorts of tea cups in her cupboard I think. The tea cups are stamped on different sorts of design paper and all stacked up in a pile – not as easy as it looks like (LOL). The tea cup stamp I’ve used is a free stamp from Craft Stamper Magazine.

Aan het einde van dit bericht wil ik graag mijn vier nieuwe volgsters Rita, Janny, Pauline en Henny welkom heten. Ik hoop dat jullie mijn projecten mooi vinden en er je er wat inspiratie uit kunt halen.
Dat is het weer voor vandaag. Ik pak gauw een kop thee en ga eens kijken wat er te vinden is op andere bureaubladen.

Have a happy and crafty Wednesday

As I end my post I just want to give a warm welcome to my four new followers Rita, Janny, Pauline and Henny. I hope you will enjoy and feel inspired by the projects on my blog today!
That’s it for today. I'm off to grap a cuppa now and find out what all your desks have to say...

Have a happy and crafty Wednesday.

Beautiful cards you have created.

Lunch Lady Jan zei

I think you have the balance just right on that card - sweet but not too much! The flowers and other bits and bobs are just right, any more would have been overpowering, I think.
I love that expression about Spring starting after Thursday! Never heard that one before...mind you, it feels like winter right now in the UK :)
Hugs, LLJ #33 xx

RosC zei

Hello again Franka. Today was our first serious day of Winter down here! It was cold, wet, and windy. I lit the slow combustion fire which warmed our large living room (100 sq.m.) for a family visit. We had table games and crafting after lunch.
I love the card for your Aunt, beautiful colouring, and the teacups are perfect.
Ros. #27.

Julia Dunnit zei

Ah Franka, its a lovely card, and you probably enjoyed working outside of your 'normal' way too - I love the little clutch of embellishments with the book paper. I can't believe you can achieve all that on a card and not even have so much as a scrap of tape on your desk -honestly, your cutting mat is the cleanest I've ever seen!

Sarah zei

Hi Franka - good to see a new post and another lovely card...love that card design and the tea cups look just fabulous on the design papers. It is cold wet and grey here - no Spring at all...you might need to make that quilt and wear it ! Enjoy the show and be nice to your bank account...! Tot gauw. Have a creative week and happy WOYWWing... Sarah

Wat een prachtige kaart heb je gemaakt voor je tante .
Heel heel mooi en ze zal hier vast heel erg blij mee zijn.

Peggy zei

Running a bit behind on my visits. love the cards! Have a great WOYWW!

Princess Judy Palmer zei

That is such a beautiful card that you made for your aunt. I am glad you showed us the inside of it so we could see your stunning artwork there too, but also so we could see how the front of the card opened. I see it isn't a full front, but a half card with a panel sticking up. That is very nice because it is different and you can still see the lovely roses in the corner when the card is open. I love all the little details on your card. Thanks for sharing.

Spyder zei

I love your card you have made for your Aunt, she will love it and it's sooo beautifully coloured. The little charm adds just the right touch! Have a lovely crafty week. HaPpY WoYwW!
