winter birdhouse

Hi everyone!
Today I want to share this little birdhouse. Had so much fun making it!
I thought it would be a nice x-mas/winter decoration in my house and it matches perfectly with
the white canvas I had made earlier.

And some details:
Painted the bird with white acrylic paint and put some micro beads in the wet paint.
Inked the edges.

Just love these little pinecones!

For the roof I used some fun fibre and lace ribbon.
Thought this had a nice wintery effect.
I used pom pom ribbon for the edge of the roof.

Think this will be my last project before x-mas.
 Lots to do before the x-mas weekend: work, shopping, cleaning, you know....all the fun stuff(NOT!)
But there is some good news!
I have a week off from work next week, so guess what this girl had planned:
So looking forward to that!

Wishing you all a very merry x-mas!!!!!!

sweet memories

Hello everyone!
Today a layout of my mom....miss her daily but I'm so lucky to have lots of sweet memories!!

And some details:
For all the Dutch ladies: That gorgeous heart and star are from Blokker.
The wooden flowers are from Pipoos. Painted them with white acrylic paint.
Misted the background with two colors and did some stitching.

Yesterday I had a great day with Gerry. Lots of chatting, but also managed to make three cards! That's a record for me! You just can't have enough cards, right?!!

My loved

Hello everyone!
Today I want to share a layout about my youngest daughter,Yiscka.
I was totally inspired by the big wooden heart I found at a local home deco store.
Also fell in love with these little pine cones. Found these at a local flower shop.
Inspiration is everywhere, isn't it?
Made the flowers using a small tool from Clover, Hana-Ami flower loom.
Misted the background with two colors and added some metal embellies.
And some details

Also made a card

Have a wonderful day!
