Hi there!

Looking at my post title and wondering: "What is she talking about?!"

Moeder is Afrikaans for MOTHER! It's a more traditional form of the word, and sometimes I just love to call my mom that, instead of the more generally used 'mamma'. It has it's roots from our Dutch ancestors.

So now that's it for our language lesson ... on to my card that as you know by now is for my mother, of course for Mother's day coming up!

I am entering my card at the following challenges:

Virginias view challenge   ~ Stitching

Cut it up challenges  ~ Mother's day (use a die cut)

Cut It Up

Cas-ual fridays ~ 3 thirds challenge (3 hearts on 1/3 of the card)

Simon says stamp  ~ anything goes

Thanks so much for visiting me today!

Daar is 'n pragtige landelike gevoel aan hierdie soet harte, Hannelie ... ideaal vir Moedersdag! Anita :)

Hope that's a good translation!!

This is such a unique card, Hannelie. When you said Dutch heritage this reminded me of some of the Pennsylvania Dutch things I've seen. Your moeder will love it.

This sure is a very special Moeder's Day card! I love the homespun feel and of course, the faux stitching in the sentiment matched perfectly with all the elements! I love the red stitched heart! Thanks SO much for entering Virginia's View Challenge!

As always, Hannelie...your card is so perfectly executed! I love how you layered the hearts and how beautiful the red and gingham pattern complement the Kraft background! Such a pretty Mother's Day card!

This is such a sweet card for Mother's Day. I love the kraft background and that blue gingham heart is as sweet as they come.

This is such an awesome design. Love the gingham with the red and kraft :)

Geri said...

Gingham, kraft cardstock, a trio of hearts and a twine bow...I adore the folk art/country charm!

Your Moeder is going to love this :)

O, vrou, jou Ma gaan sekerlik mal wees hieroor!!!
Ek's mal oor jou gebruik van die kraft met die blou, wit en rooi. Die fyn gaatjies in die vorm van die hart is pragtig en die fyn stekies op die rooi is so oulik!! Die strik is perfek en ek hou daarvan dat jy die sentiment so eenvoudig gehou het. Pragtig afgerond met die rooi perels. Hou daarvan dat jy die hartjies op 'n aparte laag gesit het met foam tape om dit ekstra dimensie te gee. Pragtige skepping!!


Nou gaan ek gou daai tee maak, die ketel het gekook en ek het heerlik by jou gekuier!!!
