Marie is back! I didn't 'use' her much in my art splashes lately, and so it was about time for bringing the beautiful Marie-Antoinette style up again.
So.... therefor I created this very heavily embellished greeting card with lots of paper flowers and bling bling. I even decorated the inside as well as the back of this card. I couldn't stop this time, as you can see! The card also has a matching tag hanger with beaded dangle.
This vintage Marie style card is one of my most favorite cards ever. Probably because it matches my interior so well, haha. I will have it on display in my heavily embellished craftroom lol. I hope you like this card as much as I do! Enjoy the day! See you later alligator!

Today I want to share another handmade card that I created recenlty. I'm quite a busy bee lately with creating art, am I not?! Better than last year I think! I litterally go from one project to another, just like a bee goes from flower to flower. So..... in Van Zuiden's Home Bee season has started again, haha! So.... here is another card from my heart. It was a quick and fairly simple card I created in a very bored mood. I was very low in energy when I made this card and was too tired to even get up from my chair to pick up materials for it, so I used materials that were already there on my desk! I often create like that. My desk is always a chaos of all kinds of pieces of paper, leftover flowers and embellishments from other projects and ah.... so much more! I just sit there and let my eyes scroll over the desk and there I find a button or a string of trim or whatever. So.... this is what happened with this card and it truly has me in awe of what I still managed to gather from that messy desk lol. Wherever my heart was..........it was on my desk where I found these treasures, hehe! Somehow i'm always in war with chaos and order! I can't explain that very easily. Anyway..... it's a pink card, of course, and I hope you enjoy this piece of eyecandy!

Time for the beads again!
I had to play with some beads again and made this beautiful white pearl bling bling memory wire bracelet the other day.
For this bracelet I used lots of pearls in different shades of white and creme and added beautiful rhinestone beads and spacers in between. Here and there some crystal beads and seed beads with AB finish. I just love to make bracelets with using memory wire! It's so easy to create with, and a bracelet is so quickly finished and so chic to wear.
What I love to do is just sit in the sun wearing it and watch the sun catch the bling bling. I can do that for hours, lol. Yes, yes, i'm a magpie. Always have been. I can never have too much bling around me. Mesmerizing beautiful it is! I hope you are inspired and wish you a wonderful day!
