Happy Birthday

Our nephew Ruben is celebrating his 11th birthday today. You may know that Eric's sister Lisette and her family live Down Under so we are never able to visit them on their birthdays. Eric called Ruben on Skype to wish him a Happy Birthday. I was sleeping on the couch as I suffered from a terrible headache this morning. I did hear Lisette say that Ruben's birthday card arrived in time. I was happy to hear that, because I thought it would be late. I used October Afternoon's Campfire collection again. At the moment it's my favorite collection for masculine cards.



Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper (Straw) | Patterned paper: October Afternoon (Campfire) | Twine: May Arts | Buttons: Papertrey Ink (Holiday Mix) | Clear stamps: Papertrey Ink (Enjoy The Ride) | Ink: Versafine (Onyx Black), Papertrey Ink (Vintage Touch Tea Dye Duo) | Tools: Papertrey Ink (Double-Ended Banners Die, Boxy Banners, Seeing Stars Collection), sewing machine | Adhesive dots: Zva Creative (AD01CB101)

The girls played field hockey this morning. Unfortunately Fleur's team lost the game (5-1), but Fleur played a great game. She loves to play one of the defender positions, and she does best at that position. Since two weeks Sanne's been playing games too. They first have a 30 minute practice and then play two 15-minute games. Both games were won by her and her team (4-0 and 5-1). She even scored a goal in the second game.

I'm off to get ready for my mom's birthday party. Enjoy your day!

  10. Echt een leuke mannenkaart. Goed idee voor mijn a.s. schoonzoon aangezien ik zelf een beetje blanco ben wat ideeën betreft. Heb je soms..... Misschien gebruik ik je basisidee als het mag?
