Cards, flowers and food!

Hi dear friends. I have to tell you that I sold four Grid designs in the mean time. I was so encouraged! I have another three for sale in my Etsy shop.
Now I am working on a huge project for our bedroom as the picture we had lost its glass and the color was off, so.... I am making an inchie creation which has a frame of 76,5x61 cm!

Here is a sneak peek.. I am just adhering the squares straight over the poster. I did quite a bit today too, so I'm half way.

 This card was made with a new stamp called the Classic Fabric design from Hero Arts, it is a cling. I stamped over a patterned paper scrap with the Carte Postale stamp for the centre and added a butterfly which was part of the leftover from the scrap.

A couple of flower photos from my garden. This is a Papavar,  it grows like the Poppy, I think that is the right name in English. It took a while before they opened, but they are gorgeous.

This is a huge shrub in front of our bedroom window, when the window is open we can smell the scent, which is lovely.

 To finish I took a picture of the Paëlla I made yesterday evening. Isn't it colorful? It is a huge pan full of fish, rice etc. which recipe is originally from Spain. We all love it. The dish is huge.

Thanks for your lovely visits!

  11. Wow, your card looks awesome and I love your work in progress! Can't wait to see the finished project. I think I might try to make a project with those squares soon, would love one in my home (first find a place for it though and wait for some new stamps to arrive :p). The Paella looks so colorful and rich! Hugs, Hanneke

  12. What a post full of lovely visuals!!
    I'm so excited for you that your grids are selling. They are so unique and full of beautiful details.
    I like all the detailing on your card. Your ability to layer is wonderful. The pics of the flowers are reminders of God's little detailing that!
    Now I am very hungry after seeing your paella...must get some breakfast!

  15. Your inchie projects are so inspiring, so happy for your sales! The card is another gorgeous example of your creative talent, loving how you mix paper and stamping so beautifully. And if I ever make to France I want some of that paella, what a deliciously colorful dish!

  16. This post is just "scrumptious" in every way, Jacqueline! I love the art in progress, the card, those amazing flower photos and the paella looks divine!
