Debbie's DT week at Sketch Saturday

Hello everybody!!

I hope you are all doing well!! It's a schoolvancation week here in The Netherlands so I'm having both my husband and my four year old at home (my one year old is always at home so that doesn't have anything to do with the vancation). I love that they are around but it doesn't really motivate me or give me a lot of time to craft let alone to check out your blogs. So sorry, I'll try to make up for it next week. It is Saturday though so of course I have something to show you with this weeks sketch for Sketch Saturday.

This week is Debbie's Design Team week and she has given us this lovely sketch to work with: As I told you in the post below I have received some gorgeous new stamps to work with and some of those are from the new release of The Greeting Farm. I was one of the lucky girls who got the chance to buy them in the presale. Here is my card:
The stamp I used is from the new Hope & Grace set and I think both these characters are soooo cute! Here is a close up:

Hope you can see there is again a lot of 3D on this image. All the papers I've used are from (I believe) the april Card-Art kit as are the pins I've used and the pearls. The nestabilitie behind the image is the Peony and I've used my new Fiskars punch on the bottum. The little green dots on the nestabilitie circle are what was left after punching the paper. The flower and the brad were again a gift from my mystery SS friend who I received last weeks charm from. The ribbon is from stash. Here is the inside of the card:

The orange flower and the sentiment are also in the Hope & Grace set.
I hope you like my creation for this week. Don't forget to check out the blogs of the other Design Team members and this week I have the pleasure to tell you we are joined by the very kind and sweet Jacqui Dennis aka Cats Whiskers. I love Jacqui's work and think she is one of the kindest people in blogland and I am so pleased that she agreed to join us this week and the next!!
Now, after checking out the blogs, join us with this weeks sketch. This week is sponsored by the Whimsy Stamps and they are donating to very cute stamps so check out the SS blog for details, join and keep your fingers crossed!!
Have a great day everybody!!

  25. Hey Mariska,

    Well I have a few questions for you.

    First though this card turned out really really cute!!!!! I love your coloring of Hope or is it Grace I am not sure which one is which?

    Your card is so wonderful as are all of your cards I just do not know how you do it???

    Now on to the questions!!!

    My Mother in Law and Father in Law will be in the Netharlands on Tuesday she asked me to ask you a couple of questions.

    1. What town/City do you live in she remembered I told her you lived near the Tulips and they are going their first day to see the Tulips so she said she wanted to know what city you live in so she could at least tell me what your town/city looks like.

    I have a list of all the places they will see in their 8 days there. They will get off the plane on Tuesday morning and go right to the Tulips and stay in Amsterdam that night.

    She also wanted me to ask about wheather right now she says everything she has read on the internet says it is actually pretty cool or chilly there right now so she does not think they should pack any summer/spring clothes???

    If you get this in time they will be leaving on Monday morning to fly out of Kansas and it is now Friday night here.

    Have a Great Day!!!

    Heather Schlatter

    We only have 3 more days of school here for Pre-School (they go Monday Wednesday Friday mornings, and my 7 year old has 10 days of school left then we will be out until the middle of August.
