As I've mentioned previously, my husband went on sabbatical in Utrecht, Netherlands. Here are a couple more pages from our life there. This page is about a local dessert specialty that my son enjoyed at this restaurant. I used this sketch from Stuck?!.

Our apartment was at the far end of the canal shown in this next page. I used the left side of this sketch from Let's Scrap.

Both pages use Basic Grey papers and Dutch-themed stickers from Scrapbook Customs.

Is it wine'o clock?

I made this card using the "life is Grape" stamps set from Your Next stamp and sketch 55 which can be found here. This stamp is tough to color, but I like how it came out this time. I used Memento Tuxedo black ink, markers, Kreaxions heart punch, Paper House paper, Tim Holtz key, and twinery twine.

Thanks for looking!

Card Season

Card season in my family comes right after the winter holidays. In the first 6 weeks of the year, we have 4 birthdays, one anniversary, and Valentine's Day. That's a lot for a small family. I enjoy making cards this time of year because any theme or color scheme is appropriate. Here are my first 2 cards.

This card is made from the Challenge #111 color scheme at Markerpop.  Stamps are from Kaiserkraft and Fiskars, and the flower is colored with Copic markers. I'm not sure if I am going to use this card for a birthday or anniversary. 

For this card, I used sketch #55 from Your Next Stamp. The ice creams are a YNS stamp colored with Copic markers, Papers are from Basic Grey.

Thanks for looking!
