Get Well Card, and a Sneak Peek

Happy Monday! How was your weekend? We had a wonderful weekend. We had Eva, Fleur's best friend staying with us on Saturday. Eva is such a sweet girl, and she and Fleur get along so well. The girls played outside with friends from school on Saturday afternoon. They have a wonderful group of friends and I enjoy watching them play together. At noon on Sunday Eva's mom came to pick her up, but Eva didn't want to leave. The girls wanted to spend a few more hours together so Eva's mom invited Fleur to come over to their home. She joined the family to visit Eva's grandmother and had dinner with them. Eric was supposed to leave for Dublin yesterday, but due to the cloud of volcanic ash from Iceland there haven't been any flights since Friday. The weather was beautiful yesterday so we sat outside enjoying the sunshine.

This card featuring Old World Cabbage Stew went up on the Jillibean Soup blog today. I am not a vintage scrapbooker, but I love the vintage feel of this collection. And what do you think of the new Canvas Flowers? The flowers come in different sizes and are wonderful to use on cards and layouts.

Creative Scrappers is celebrating its 2nd birthday in April. Lots and lots of fabulous sketches this month as well as fun games and great prizes to win. Creative Scrappers is a great sketch blog and I was fortunate to be their guest designer for Sketch #64. This month I am one of the lucky readers to contribute to Creative Scrappers' Birthday Bash and Kristine sent me a great sketch to work with. Unfortunately I won't be able to share my layout until April 29th so I'll leave you with a sneak peek. I combined two of my favorites on this layout.....Jillibean Soup and Zva Creative.

I'll be back with a birthday card tomorrow. Until then!


  1. I love that you only used a stamp for the sentiment! What great layers of colors!

  2. Great card, Ingrid. I've got to get me some of those canvas flowers - love them!!

  3. Hoi Ingrid,

    Ik ben er eindelijk een beetje achter hoe feeds werken...
    Ik wilde je even bedanken voor je leuk berichtjes op mijn blog.
    Soms doe ik een avond over een doosje, en soms 3 avonden, het hartje.
    Ik vind de kaart hierboven ook weer een plaatje, en de ene van afgelopen week met die kleuren blauw, ik ben gek op blauw vooral die tinten, maar vind het best lastig om het te gebruiken. Nou ik kom nu vaker nu ik weet hoe het werk;)
    Groetjes Dora

  4. Dat klinkt als een heerlijk weekend. En wat een verhaal hè, met de vulkanische as bij IJsland?! Op dit soort momenten merk je ook pas hoeveel mensen om je heen eigenlijk het vliegtuig nodig hebben. Ik hoop echt dat de vliegtuigen snel weer mogen vliegen.

    Ik vind de kleurencombinatie op je kaart werkelijk prachtig. Dat papier met de kersjes is ook zóó lief. En ik ben erg benieuwd naar de layout. De sneaks zien er in ieder geval weer heel veelbelovend uit.

  5. That card has a whole lot of wow factor. I love the flower!

  6. love that card Ingrid! And aren't you being a little tease!!!! can't wait to see the full reveal!!!

  7. Oh qu'elle est belle, j'adoooore, bravo Ingrid

  8. Nou, dit ziet er al veelbelovend uit. Prachtg papier is het ook weer! Gelukkig is het al snel de 29e!

  9. *GASP* I LOVE LOVE this!! Everything from the colors to the papers to the polka dot canvas flower. Girl, you are GOOD!! Okay, now I'm going to have to get me some of those papers...and flowers! :o)

    Congrats on your Guest Designer assignment. The sneaks look gorgeous! Wow, I can't wait to see all of it! ♥♥ Kay
