Deze 2 kaarten heb ik gemaakt voor de Christmas rak voor Let's get Shabby.
Ik had ze vorige maand op de post gedaan naar Julie in Australië maar na 2 weken kreeg ik ze terug. Het pakje was open en de kaarten beschadigd..ahh. Ik heb ze "gerepareerd" en iets aangepast en opnieuw verstuurd naar Australië en nu kwamen ze gelukkig wel goed aan. Heeft bij elkaar ruim een maand geduurd dus ze waren te laat voor de gezamelijke kaarten foto! Zie mijn vorige post.

I made these cards for the Christmas Rak on the Shabby blog.
I sent them more than 4 weeks ago to Julie in Australia but after 2 weeks the postman brougt them back to me. The packet was open and the cards had a little damage. I repaired the cards and sent them again to Julie. This time the arived in good condition:) But they where to late for the picture together with the cards the other Shabby girls made. You can see the picture in my previous post.

Deze kerst "kaart" heb ik gemaakt van een oud sigarendoosje.
Made this "card" from an old cigar box.
Dit is de binnenkant:

My mom is in the hospital. She has a lung disease.
Tomorrow she have surgery. We are anxious because there are a lot of risks.
So last weekend we spent time together with the family at a holiday resort.
We had a lovely time with the family. I really enjoyed all the meals together and we spent a lot of time in the swimming-pool. Just playing and relaxing. And we made some walks in the wood. I'm really thankful for this weekend! And so proud of my mom!
Here some pictures
