A Dutch blogger - Wilmi

If you want an idea of what Holland is like, visit Wilmi on her blog here. I lived in Holland nineteen years ago, so it is always a joy to visit this country again, Les Pays Bas, via her blog. Her blog is full of color and life and she is sharp in her observations as well as humoristic in her journaling.

This envelope with goodies is what Wilmi sent to me - it reflects who she is - COLORFUL! She blogs about everyday life with photos, she creates cards from magazine, paints stories on stones, creates wonders from old pieces of wood - an all round creative person - thanks Wilmi for letting me taste a part of it!
The following two cards have been made around the die-cut she sent me:

I am wondering if my friends in America know about this diecut because I have never seen them use it. I used a webster page and an image I recently found but didn't note where. I'm sorry about that.

Wilmi had also given me a doily which I have never used on cards before, and love! I used half of it on this card and the other half is a diecut from Helle.

It feels and looks like a beautiful sunny day today - Spring already?!!
Have a good weekend!


  1. Hi Jacqueline, it is wonderful to have friends one can communicate with and that give us an insight into their lives! Beautiful cards! No, I have not seen that die cut before? I wonder if it may be from Silhouette, I'll have to check! Have a wonderful Saturday! I just went for a 10 mile run in the rain, thank goodness the temperatures were above freezing today! Take care, Brenda

  6. Ik vind het heel erg leuk dat mijn blog voor jou het "holland-gevoel" vertegenwoordigt! Je hebt er een mooie blogpost van gemaakt.. en nog mooiere kaartjes. en ik weet nu wat doily's zijn;)
    maar ik word wel een beetje verlegen van al die aandacht hoor...
    groetjes, en een fijne week!

  7. Dear Jacqueline!
    I am back to Moscow. Lovely cards. I like this bird die more than that of Tim Hotz'.

    The image you used looks like a stamp from Prima.
