Happy 40th Birthday

It's been more than a week since we got back from a 2-week holiday. Just like last year we spent our holiday in Texel, one of the islands in the north of the Netherlands. Fortunately the weather was reasonable. We had some days of rain, but mostly it was dry and sunny. We had a great and relaxing time. If you would like to see some photos of Texel hop on over to Eric's blog.

Today my sweet friend Angy has been celebrating her 40th birthday. I made her this card based on the card sketch I designed for My Scrapbook Nook. The large manila tag is available in my store.

Supplies: Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Vintage Cream) | Patterned paper: October Afternoon (5 & Dime) | Clear stamps: Papertrey Ink (Big Birthday Wishes) | Ink: Papertrey Ink (Vintage Touch Tea Dye Duo), Versafine (Onyx Black) | Manila tag: Cards & Wishes | Tools: Papertrey Ink (By the Numbers Die Collection), sewing machine | Adhesive foam dots: Zva Creative (AD01CB101)

This past week the girls went to the IJVO, a summer camp in our town. On the first morning they built a shed of pallets with help from some of the parents. Eric helped Fleur and her friends, and I helped Sanne and friends. Well....the dads built the shed. I was there to support them. {wink} Since it's a kids' camp all parents had to leave after 1 hour. The kids had to finish and paint their sheds themselves. Each day they did crafts, sports and games. And of course they could spend time together in their sheds. It was a fun week, and the girls had a blast with their friends. Eric made some photos last Thursday.

The girls go back to school on Monday, and we have to go back to work.

Have a great weekend.

  4. Da's een mooie kaart! Hele gave, hippe kleuren heb je gebruikt. En zo te zien vonden de meiden het IJVO heel geslaagd:) Het zal wel weer wennen zijn om naar school en weer aan het werk te gaan maandag. Ik begin zelf volgende week maandag aan mijn nieuwe opleiding, maar zie er om eerlijk te zijn ook best tegenop...
