A birthdaycard for SDC 344.

Most people today have to stay at home. I think it is very hard not to have my usual liberty.
But , on the other hand it is nice to get more crafty time. Saying that, I feel so worried about my loved ones and therefor it is hard to even concentrate on being crafty. As if the spirit doesn`t join in.

I made this card thinking of my daughter stuck in wonderful New Zealand. Everything is closed and they (daughter and boyfriend) are desperate to find a place where they can spend the next couple of weeks until the worst part of the pandemic is over.
She will even celebrate her birthday down there
.
And then I have my parents in beautiful Sweden. Almost the one and only country that HAS NOT shut down schools and social living because they believe in another solution. I DO hope that my parents ( and of course all the other elderly and people at risk) will survive this act.

Anyway  - Stampotique has a new theme again - this time it is all about Birthday.

So this card is for our lovely Emilie in NZ (just somewhere outside Christchurch) , for my mom turning 81 in Sweden and for my father in law in Denmark turning 99 next month.

Stamp used = tree topper.

Wish you all the very best!

A nice day with creative fellows - workshop in Keispelt.


Working with water colors at the latest workshop for Mosaik Scrappers in our lovely "salle polyvalante" in Keispelt.
Jaine had prepared kits for us with water colors, pencils, paper and a canvas. And so the journey began...

After a couple of hours I had this picture in front of me.

For me it is about movement, going somewhere, looking for new sceneries and places.
In Swedish we say that we find a "smultronställe" - a place we love to go to , where you can pick sweet berries in the forest...
And you never know what to expect - like a box of chocolate - you never know what to you get :-)
