I love the grey days of autumn

The grey days of autumn have definitely come in the Netherlands. Rain and drizzle. But we have also seen the rainbow and that brightens up my grey days.
 
Eindelijk herfst
Eindelijk herfst hier! Het regent en het miezert. Het is grijs en het is mistig. Maar tussendoor waren er felle opklaringen en de regenboog was echt een toegift! Zag jij hem ook?

In this time of the year I am making 3-D cards with a winter theme. That will brighten and lighten also my grey days. I love to spend my spare time making cards. It is good for me to sit down (after my mother's death) in my chair by the fireplace ... making cards and reflect. I wish I could inspire you to create something beautiful too. 
 
Winterthema
In het najaar maak ik wel vaker 3-D kaarten. Maar na het sterven van mijn moeder neem ik er bewuster de tijd voor. Tijd om echt even te zitten en te knippen. Je kunt dan je gedachten zo fijn laten gaan. Dat heb ik nodig. Ik show er een paar ...

Joy & Happiness

Hello Winter

After cut and paste I give the 3-D card a clear coat of varnish. I make also cards with an other theme. HERE. 
 
I love my grey days. It is good to reflect sometimes.

  2. That rainbow is beautiful. We had one today too but I wasn't fast enough to get a photo. It came and left so fast. Your cards are very creative. My wife likes to make things with yarn for the holidays for people.
    Enjoy the grey days and have a great weekend!

  12. I declare, your cards are like pieces of art, each one of them! I think my favorite is the one of the window winter scene with the green roses. Truly amazing! I love to make cards too, and I can see the detail you have put into each card.

    I agree with you about the seasons, there is always something lovely that we can find in each one, and after the busy-ness of spring, summer and fall, winter truly is a nice time of rest to get busy on crafty projects. And your photo of the rainbow is lovely!

    I'm happy to meet you, I am your neighbor from Friday Foto :)
