Sharing

Hi everyone, hope you are all enjoying this beautiful summer! 
A month ago I was so lucky to win some blog candy on Virginia's blog - I didn't think I had a chance, as my comment was the first one, but I was so in awe of what her DH had done for her that I had to comment right away. If you are curious to see it, go look here.

 

The card that follows features two of the stamps from the stamp plate from My Mind's eye which you can see on the photo above. The little bird is from Franziska and the leaves are Clearly besotted stamps. The sequins are from Betty and the little pollen dots were made with a very old SU stamp. So, no Hero Arts on this one!
 

I think this one speaks for itself how it was made.

Last Sunday DH and I went for a lovely walk in Minerves, a very old village near to us. Here are a couple of photos.


We had a lovely time with David who was with us for four days.


I got a lovely surprise when RenΓ© returned from his trip to Holland. This beautiful bunch of flowers has long gone, but I can keep the memory of them!


and just sharing the visitor who decided to spy on me while crafting this week, clinging itself to the mosquito net in front of the window! A beautiful lizard that lives in these parts.


 Lastly, sharing a butterfly card that I made yesterday.

Just used three punched out squares from projects not used and attached three of the many butterflies I have fluttering around waiting for a home in my scrap basket.

Have a lovely week!
Blessings,
Jacqueline
