It is Saturday, and time for a new sketch by Michelle over at Card Patterns. It is so good to see that many card makers found their way to the Card Patterns blog. Today's sketch is Sketch #5. I made a card for Roos, the daughter of one of my best friends, who turned 5 today. I used the Dream Street Papers Lullaby collection that I bought at Paper & Pictures last Thursday. A lovely collection for little girls.

Again there will be two lucky winners this week. One will be offered a Guest Designer spot, and the other will win a prize package sponsored by Paper Popsicles. They are giving away this...
This week's Guest Designer at Card Patterns is Jane Ettia Jones. Her blog is absolutely worth a visit. She is a very talented scrapbooker, and her creations are always so gorgeous. Her card based on Sketch #5 is stunning.
Today we went shopping in Maastricht, our favorite city to shop. Usually Eric and I go there together for a weekend at least once a year. This time we went with the 4 of us. We left at 8.10am, and arrived in Maastricht at 9.50am. We first had a drink in a restaurant at the beautiful square Onze Lieve Vrouwenplein. We then headed to Eric's favorite store Laurier-Bome Casual. We spent more than an hour in that store, and Eric left with lots of nice clothes. For the girls we went shopping at Esprit and Mexx, and Eric and I bought clothes at Geddes & Gillmore. Fleur and Sanne had a Happy Meal for lunch. Whenever Eric and I are in Maastricht we always take a sandwich at Subway for lunch, and that is what we did today too. We love their sandwiches. We shopped till we almost dropped, and ended our shopping trip in the same restaurant as we started in the morning. We were home at 6.30pm. We had a wonderful day today, and we all enjoyed it a lot.
I received the Makes My Heart Smile award from Lynn, Hanneke, Marije and Claudia. Thanks girls! I really appreciate getting the award from you. I am always a bit late passing it on, and by the time I post the award on my blog my favorites have already received the award. So.....this award is for all my blog readers. I really appreciate it that you take time to visit my blog, and leave comments. A BIG thank you to you all.....You Make My Heart Smile.
You may remember this post. I have not forgotten about it, but haven't taken the time yet to answer your questions. Will do so within the next few days. If you want you can still add your question.
