Hello! Thanks for all your good wishes (and separate e-mails) about Rodney, so appreciate you all. He is back in the hospital and is feeling a bit better with treatment. He just asked his dad if we could import a load of Saté with Peanut butter sauce from Holland - as he hasn't eaten for a while :)!

This is a fairly new stamp from Hero Arts called 'Poppy' - H5904.

Its not easy to get a good print with it, so had to experiment with inks and water before I was satisfied. Actually it doesn't need too much water, it stamps better without it.


I stamped on pp, and adhered to a winelabel. Gold embossed the sentiment.

This second card was made by using a free download which was adhered to pp. I used a text stamp from Hero Arts to stamp on the right side and attached a butterfly and a stamped a sentiment. I love making this collage cards! Wish their was a challenge around to make these, but it's very seldom you will find them.

Lastly, had to mention my son, Michaël and his fiancé, Roxane who will be getting married on September 6th this year. The last son to leave the house - I will miss him very much. I'm so proud of these two.


  1. OH MY! Your creative touch never fails to create a masterpiece. Putting the image to a wine label is a master touch. excellent.
    Love free downloads. They are often among the best to work with. You worked your magic on this card as well. Soft and personal in every way.Excellent.
    Your son and his fiance make a handsome couple. You are blessed.

  2. So glad to hear Rodney is on the mend, even though he's in hospital. If he starts asking for such yummy foods? That's a good sign, I'd say! Your cards are amazing, they're always made with so much love! And I can see why you're so proud of your son and his fiancé, they make such a beautiful couple, all the best,

    Good news abut Rodney, you know when a man asks for food that he is feeling better!
    I also wanted to say thanks for suggesting the book on David by Charles Swindoll! Oh my goodness, what a very gifted writer. I can see myself purchasing the entire series. I got it on my Kindle and it was wonderful reading it whilst on holiday at the beach.
    I have now recommended it to my Bible Study group, thank you!
