Happy Birthday, Tim!

Hi everyone,

Tim Holtz birthday is only one week before mine and that has to be celebrated. I mean because it's his birthday and not necessarily that his birthday is one week before mine ... Anyways, with this card I'm joining  Grungy Monday and Simon Says Stamp and Show. Grungy Monday is all about Tim's birthday and the theme of Simon Says Stamp and Show is something old and something new. Something old gave me something to think about. Almost everything I have is new, but then I remembered that I have a really old dictionary. It was printed in 1956! I think that's the oldest thing I own. I got it from my mom. It was a little hurtful when I torn a page out of it, but it is for a very good cause! The page that I've torn out is about the Greek biblical names. And on this page is Timoteus, better known as Timothy!
For something new, I just recieved the trinket pins and the philosophy tags.
When I think of Tim, I think of grunge, vintage, disney, but especially to steampunk.

It is quite some work to keep up the thumbnails with each post. So I don't know for sure if I'll be continuing that in the future.

  6. Hi Sandra,
    Love your birthday card for Tim, you should send it to him, I think he would love it and woudl be able to see all the beautiful work you have put into it :) What a lovely book from your mum! I can imagine the thumbnails do take a while, but they were still a really a nice idea, it's a shame Blogger doesn't have a quick facility to help! Big Hugs, Teresa x

  9. WOW!!! How original is this? Love his name meaning! You are too creative! I've always wondered about those thumbnails. Is it really hard? I wouldn't even know where to start. Awesome job!

  10. Awesome card, Sannie!! How creative and special to use the page with his name -- it makes it so meaningful! You did a wonderful job and I wish we could somehow see Tim's face when he sees your card!! :)

  14. Hey Sannie, Wat goed dat jij ook kaartjes voor Winter's Valentines Card Drive hebt gemaakt! Super lief zeg!! Dikke kus, Leintje*

  15. Ja ik heb dat gevraagd, maar je kan er gewoon iets in zetten van:
    "Happy Valentine's Day!"of "love"
    en dan je naam en waar je vandaan komt/ waar je woont.

    Enveloppen hoeven er niet bij te zitten, zij doet ze in doorzichtige enveloppen en ze zei dat ze met uitdelen wel rekening houden dat de hello kitty kaarten aan meisjes worden gegeven.
    Er mogen geen dingen aan zitten die ze eraf kunnen halen en in kunnen slikken. Dus geen knoopjes, lintjes e.d.

    Dikke kus,
