It has been a while

Happy Monday  to all my blogging friends,We came to the Netherlands 7 weeks ago and had hoped for a white Christmas, but that didn't happen..instead we had the warmest New Year in about 25 years....but we still hoped to see some snow and last Monday morning woke to a white world. The past week we experienced some really cold weather and in some parts of the country it was -22 the coldest in 27 it was only -17..not too bad... LOL. We had more snow on Friday and since then it has stayed white and with the sun shining it is just beautiful to see....everyone was out skating and having fun on the ice and the temps have still been about -10 at night and -4 to 0 during the day. I guess we will still see the white countryside for a good deal of the week as more cold weather is this is our last full week...we go back to SA on the 15th... we will certainly have more time for brisk walks out in the snow... Enough of the weather.. now on to my card for today.

I made this easel card as a sample for Diane's shop....Hobby Dee ..using her products.

Used a Marianne and cut a card with cream cardstock..... folded into an easel and inked the edes with vintage photo. Cut another large shape with cream onto that mounted a smaller shape cut from Vivi Gade  double sided design paper. Used a Nellie Snellen die for the smaller circle on the bottom and cut the hearts out of the DP. The back of one of the designs had all the hearts. Stamped a sentiment from a freebie that I got in a magazine.
The image is from a 3D sheet by Moorheads...very cute. Finished off with pearls made with liquid pearls.
That's all from me...I will be back soon with another challenge card I made...Till then take care.
