Every year I make 3 very special christmas cards to go to Holland. One for my mum, one for my sister, and one for my Aunt Marij and Uncle Rinie, to who I have grown very close to in the last 6-7 years! My Aunt is also a very good cardmakester, and so I know how much a card like this will be apreciated and loved!

This is the front and side view of the card. I gave the card a lovely spine to look at. I like making little details like that!
The inside of the card! As you can see, it is very deep, and a lot of work has gone into the details!
The tag comes out of the pocket, and I wrote my message to Myrthe on it!
A closer look on all the flowers! Every single flower is hand made! The borders on the frames are stamped and colored with promarkers.
Here you can see the depth of the card a little better. All in all it took me 4 days to create this card, but I was over the moon with the end result!

At the craftfair in Doncaster we came across a stamp-stand with weirdly green looking stamps. They were all verses for birthdays, christmas, you name it! They were not expensive at all, so I bought 2 Birthday and 1 Christmas verse stamps. Not knowing the brand it was a bit of a gamble, but after using one I immediatly regretted not buying more!!! They stamp amazingly, the fonts are stunning and the verses are so lovely!! I hope to see this stand again this year!!

A good thing, and at the same time a bad thing has happened back in october on my birthday. My mum and I went to the craftfair in Doncaster, and for the first time I saw the JustRite stamps in real life. I bought one set, used it, fell in love and a new addiction was born!! And besides JustRite, also Heartfelt Creations stamps ..... I am scared to say that ever since october I managed to collect 3 folders full of the stamps (and some with matching Dies!!).

If ever in need of making a quick birthday card, because you want to make something aspecially for someone, then Hunkydory is your best friend! I made this card for a little girl, who was going to be 10. Her mum asked on the Hunkydorables facebook page if people wanted to send her a card, and many of us did :)

When my mum was overhere, we both worked on this card for Resa, one of my sisters daughters. She is a very special little girl, living in a special care home, and she loves getting mail! I always call her schetepeet (a dutch word!). Unfortunatly her "baby" sister got hold of the card and had the strong need to see how it was made! Thank goodness we still have the picture hahaha :)

I loved making this card. First because it is such a fun kit to play with (Hunkydory ofcourse). Second because I made it for one of my birthday buddies, and third because I won the October competition with it on the Hunkydorables facebook page! How much fun!!
