A tropical Dutch Dare

Hi everyone,

I hope you all had a great sofar. Yesterday we heard some great news regarding my mum. She's coming home tomorrow. Her amonia has gone, and getting her strength back is something she can do at home. So just one more visite today and tomorrow I have to pick her up and get her home. My dad (and all of us) are soglad she's coming home, next week my sister and dad are celebrating their birthday and it wouldn't be a real celebration when she's not there.

With not much time for any crafting this week I kept my DT example for this weeks challenge over at the Dutch Dare very simple.

This weeks challenge is to create something tropical.

I used stamps from Alota and Hanglar for my tropical wall hanging.

Flowers are from prima and the chipboard letters are from a local Dutch Store.

In a few minutes I'm going to meet my friend Nikki for coffee. I can hear you thinking: meeting her for coffee, when I live in holland and Nikki lives in the UK? Yes, we are going to meet for coffee. Last week we've discovered SKYPE. This way you can call anyone in the world and have a live chat. You can use SKYPE just to call, but when you have a webcam you also can see each other. We've made our first call last Friday and we've chatted for more then 1 hour. It's so great to be able to have a real chat, instead of just emailing.

Using Skype is very simple, just download the programm, fill in a few lines (username etc), attach your camera and you are ready to talk.

Thanks for stopping by today, and odn't forget to enter my candy.

xoxo Karin

My DH was talking about installing Skype the other day - but we need to get a camera and that could seriously affect my blogging - eek I'd have to put lippy on before breakfast! hugs, annie x

I'd say your creation today is definitely keeping with the tropical theme! Great job!
