Love Is In The Air :D

It's that time of year again: my mom and stepdad had their anniversary yesterday, my sister and B-I-L today (20 years already, that time has flown by!). Anyway, of course they were expecting, and received, a home-made card, even though I'm a little out of sorts as I've quit smoking and was finding it quite hard at the weekend without work to distract me and colleagues to keep me on the straight and narrow ;o) I've been smoking for twenty years (started a little before my sister's wedding in fact) so it was never going to be easy, but it had to be done ;o)

The top card is for my sister and her hubby, the bottom one for my mom and stepdad. My stepdad recently bought a boat so I thought these two Magnolia cuties quite fitting ;D

I also made this for the new challenge on Double Dutch (in a very beary mood this weekend, because I was like a bear with a sore head probably ;o)), which is to pick your favourite challenge from DDC#1 through to DDC#50 and recreate it.

Materials used:

DoCrafts stamp, Doodlebug rub-on letters, GDC "Ella Blue" papers (how gorgeous?!), flowers made with EK Success punches, rose, Heidi Swapp Ghost Shapes, Stamping Bella pebbles

Magnolia stamps, Doodlebug rub-on letters, GDC "Ella Blue" papers, Prima Marketing flowers, Stamping Bella pebbles, string, QuicKutz label die, charm

DoCrafts stamp, GDC "Ella Blue" papers, Heidi Swapp Ghost Shape, charm, string, Making Memories bling brad

That's all I wrote, I'm off to not smoke and not eat anything either, because at the moment, if it ain't nailed down, I'll eat it ;o)

Have a lovely week, thank you for stopping by!

Beide kaartjes en je doosje zijn geweldig!

Wat goed van je dat je gestopt bent met roken! Weet je, elke dag dat je niet rookt, ben je weer een stapje op weg om er helemaal vanaf te komen.
Spaar je je geld wat je anders aan roken zou uitgeven? Bij mijn beide ouders heeft het geholpen om dat te doen.
Kun je nog meer mooie kaarten gaan maken! ;0)

Wat een geweldige creaties heb je weer gemaakt Erica! Ik vind de stempels helemaal super en wat een mooi papier, ik krijg helaas niet zoveel kans om nieuwe papiertjes te kopen, maar gelukkig heb ik nog een grote doos met oude voorraad staan ;0)
Liefs van José

Hoi Erica, supercreaties ondanks je concentratieproblemen. Goed dat je gestopt bent. Ik had met mezelf afgesproken na de vakantie te stoppen, maar geloof niet dat ik er al aan toe ben (gel*l natuurlijk, maar ja ...). Succes met het niet-roken!!!!
