PCS digi release and present for juf Marian

Hello girls!!

I don't know what the weather is like in your part of the world but over here in The Netherlands it is VERY hot... I wouldn't mind a bit of rain to cool things down :S. To make things worse, Amy has been ill for the past week. I had to take her to the hospital last week because she had difficulty breathing and it turned out the be laryngitis subglottica, pseudo kroep in Dutch. The breathing got way better during the next few days but she still has a fever, she is tired a lot, eats very bad, isn't her usual happy self and now complains about pain in one leg. I just got the results from her blood test but fortunately they were good so it's probably still the kroep virus. Lets just hope it'll get out of her little body soon.

Anyway... I completely forgot to warn you about yesterdays Pink Cat Studio Digi release:As you can see you got a free American Football Billy with your purchase yesterday. Now if you've missed this offer because I was to late in mentioning the release and would have liked to make use of it please contact me TODAY ONLY and I'll see what I can arrange with Melissa. I'm not promising anything but I'll try my hardest for you... but like I said, I'll try that today only. Check out all the new digi images HERE.

Now these soccer images are perfect of course with the soccer (voetbal in Dutch) WC (WK in Dutch) going on. Today at four o clock our time The Dutch team is playing the Brazilians, it's going to be an enormous challenge but I so hope they'll make it. Hup Holland Hup!!! :). Soccer Billy was already released on a rubber Billy stamp set you can find HERE. I created a sample when that set was released so I'll show you that card today:
For more details and pictures on this slider card please look HERE.

Now today is also Dyanne's last day in school, she'll be home for the next few weeks. I made both of her teachers a gift. The gift Dyanne decided was for "juf Margreeth" I can't show you yet because I used a PCS digi that won't be released until next Thursday on that one but here is the present Dyanne gave "juf Marian":
Don't you love it? It's a soapbasket that was in the Cards Only of July/August (the last issue) and it was done by Marjan and Elly Schippers (I don't know if they have a blog, if they do could somebody send me the link so I can add it?). I had to give it a try, with different papers and images of course. This stamp is a Swiss Pixie by All That Scraps, you can find her HERE. She was colored using my Copics and I did a bit 0f 3D paperpiecing on her. Here is a close up:
The papers are old ones by Doodlebug, still think they are SO gorgeous :). Here is the back of the basket:
The butterfly is by Sizzix, the stamp is also in a set by All That Scraps, not sure which one now but if anyone really wants to know, ask and I'll look it up. A few gems for perfection. A last view:
In the basket are two satchels of hazelnut coffee, a Verkade fairtrade bar of hazelnut chocolate and a bar of Cappuccino chocolate. Really hope the teachers are into chocolate and hazelnuts :).

Well that's it for now. I'll show you the second basket next Thursday when I get to show you next Thursday and believe me... you'll love the Lily I'll have for you (oops... did I already say to much... :S).

Take care!!
