Several things

This is a card I made yesterday using a freebie download and the Hero Arts Real Flower stamps, as well as the wheat background.

I used distress inks, my favorite.

And then I want to show you this beautiful wedding card of Joël (my son) and Vivian, his future wife. No, I did not make them, they were made in Holland. I had to think of a lot of ladies I've seen who use acetate and embossing powder for their cards. It might inspire some of you too. I hope so.

Michaël, son nr. 4 was reunited with his girlfriend Roxane. They had been apart while Michaël was in Holland. I am very happy that he has found a lovely French girl who is also a beautiful Christian.

The weather is beautiful here - clear skies, dry, a lovely breeze and enjoyable. I have put a large table under a big Cyprus in the garden, a lovely place to have a meal and enjoy complete shadow. A tree is the best thing there is to sit under in hot weather! I love the sound of the wind blowing through this tree, so special.

 I'm finishing with two postcards I made and printed out. Sometimes I like to say thank you with a photo.

Have a lovely day!
