Met liefde ~ with love!

Hi there!

Expect to see more of me for the next few days... got to keep busy as our oldest daughter returned to Switzerland to start her 3rd years studies... The house feels quiet and empty... I avoid her room because  it makes me tearful to enter it and to know it will be a few months before she comes home again! In a few days, schools starts for the youngest, so lots of time to get creative!

I made a card for the Case this sketch challenge...


My Silhouette did the work again... using a cutting file from the store. I modified it by cropping and adding a frame to the original file. 2 Silver charms to finish it off.

                                                    
Thanks for visiting me today!

Hi vrou, sterkte met daai kuikentjie wat vir eers nou weer uit die nes is!! Toemaar, voor jy jou oe uitvee is die paar maande alweer verby en sy weer veilig onder ma se vlerk!!
Jou kaartjie is alweer 'n pragstuk, jong! Mal oor daai groen en die twee oulike blaartjies!
Groete

Stunning card, I love the design and wonderful colours.
I cannot imagine how I will feel when my children move away, I miss them when they return to school after their holidays. Hopefully your crafting will give you some comfort

Oh sweetie! Keep crafting; keep busy. The months will fly by that way. If this card is any indication, your craft room will be full of wonderful creations! This is a beautiful card. I'll have to try that technique on my Cameo soon. Great card. You can always em me when you need someone to talk to. Bev

Oh my word what a SHARP looking card! Loving the high contrast.

I know how you feel about how the house being quiet and empty. Cardmaking always helps me to distract myself from my sad feelings.

My heart totally feels what your heart feels...so nice when the kids come home, so hard to see them leave! There is nothing more comforting than lying down to sleep at night knowing that your kids are all tucked in their beds, safe and sound...AT HOME!!!

I like to start focusing on the next visit the second Brady walks out the door...it seems to help a bit :)

Beautiful card! Love the colors, love the modifications! Like Bev, this is something I will experiment with in the days to come...so far, page 29 is as far as I've progressed! Just wish I had more time to spend indoors!
