Made a new card

for someones 50th Anniversary:)
I've masked the girl stamp (liked how it turned out:D)
I also used the new ColorCore Cardstock and my Cuttlebug!
for the flowers I've used 2 flower punches and the pin I've made myself;)

This card I've made a while ago, didn't post it because it was a birthday card:)
here's an image of the whole card:

and here a close-up of the tag:

And I made some ATC's for the september swap:

What happened to Vince

Tuesday Vince has got an acorn in his left eye
it was thrown with a lot of strength and we went to the night care... he had a bruise and a lot of blood in his eye and something like a concussion, but not in his brains but in his eye!
He couldn't see anything, not even light!!!
He got 3 kinds of eye drops and pills, he wasn't allowed to stoop, sport and he must sleep upright.

Yesterday we had to go back to the ophthalmologist and it was a little bit better, the blood in the eye become less and he could see shades!
But there was also one less thing:
He also has a rupture of the pupil and she couldn't tell me if that's going to be fully healed
Today we went back, there was still blood in his eye, but the eyeball pressure was still a bit high. So he is still not allowed to play baseball (his new sport) or any other sport, no stooping and still sleep upright (he doesn't like that at all)

Next week Thursday we have another appointment at the ophthalmologist and I hope she can tell us more about the damage!
We hope everything is going to be okay, keep your fingers crossed for him:)

Make and Take from Provocraft

Here's the "Make and Take" from Provocraft at Kars.
I've finished it today:) I only haven't found the right pictures for it!
the orange stuff is Cricut Flocked Heat Transfer Fabric,
it's really cool stuff...
I can't wait till we can buy it :P

and here's a close-up from the Flock :)

it looks cool, does it:) (it's a kind of velvet)

I forgot to show you what I bought yesterday,
some pretty cool stuff:)

And the one who was demonstrating Cosmo Cricket,
he gave great stuff away.
He was acting like he was SantaClaus :P
Here's what I got:

Today we (Marleen, Caroline and I) went to Kars:)
There were a lot of "makes and takes" to make, I did 5 M&T :D
Here's what I made:
the first one is an envelop and a card

this one is made with new stamps from Kars

I embossed this one with the Cuttlebug

all the "Make and Takes" were nice, but I mostly loved the next 2 ones:)
first I did one with Provocraft; the Cricut Create and the CDS, but you'll have to wait for this one... it isn't finished yet:P
and the last one is an acryl card, it's just too cute! it's different on both sides.

We had a lot of fun, it was a great day!
Before we went home, we stopped at Mc Donalds...
mmm chicken nuggets, french frites and a sundae icecream as desert :)

Now I'm very tired, only got 3 hours sleep tonight!
So... I'm up to bed, goodnight...

On Saturday we (Sebastiaan, Marion, Britt and I) went to the musical "Tarzan" in Scheveningen.

It was fantastic, the monkeys hanging in the ropes, they fell out of the ceiling:)
The music was great too, I think it was very spectacular:D
here's a picture of the stage

sorry the picture is a bit dark!

I also took a picture of the sea and the beach... not the best picture, but it is one:P

We had a great evening, but when we went home one of the headlights of Marion's car was broken. We called the ANWB and we had to wait more than an hour before they we there to fix it! So we were home at 2AM and I had to get up at 5.45AM
