Bluebirds fly

The Challenge at Inspiration Avenue this week is "Over the Rainbow".

somewhere, over the rainbow, way up high,
there's a land that i heard of once in a lullaby.
somewhere, over the rainbow, skies are blue,
and the dreams that you dare to dream
really do come true.
someday i'll wish upon a star
and wake up where the clouds are far behind me.
where troubles melt like lemon drops,
away above the chimney tops,
that's where you'll find me.
somewhere, over the rainbow, bluebirds fly.
birds fly over the rainbow,
why then - oh, why can't i?
if happy little bluebirds fly
across the rainbow
Why, oh, why can't I?


The Challenge at Crazy 4 Challenges (C4C89) this week is to create a card showing a  favorite vacation spot.
My favorite spot is the sea.

De Blauwbilgorgel

At the Spotlight challenge the challenge is "Challenge yourself", to try something new.
This is a (dutch) poem from Cees Buddingh' , I always liked it and wanted to illustrate it, at last I found the perfect stamp for it.

Bij The Spotlight challenge is de uitdaging deze week om jezelf uit te dagen om iets nieuws te doen.
Dit is toch wel een van mijn favoriete gedichten van Cees Buddingh' en ik vond deze stempel helemaal perfect erbij passen. Ik heb ze samen verwerkt op een pagina, de eerste van misschien meer geillustreerde gedichten.

Flowers and Insects

I made this card for the challenge at  Crazy Amigo "Insects" and for the challenge at Use it Tuesday "Flowers".
The butterfly is from Crafty Individuals( CI-226), never used before.
The flower is from Stamp-It.
The background is brayered with  Big & Juicy Waterfall.
