Hi, my name is Carmen. Welcome to Beyond The Fringe!

Wooden Shoes Tulips Digital Stamps

I'm Back!

I know...you didn't know I was gone, but I was. We were visiting my son in Fort McMurray, Alberta - which is about a 15 hour trip by car. I'd say altogether we've covered about 3,000 km. in the past week and a half. It was so worth it though!

 We made quite a few stops on the way; one was in Drumheller. It's the place where they found a variety of amazing dinosaur bones in layers of the ground, which they've put back together and displayed. Many were still in the matrix they were found in. The museum there was phenomenal and I took some awesome photos! 

Anyway, I'm happy to be home, but wish my son and his family lived next door. I'm going to miss them all terribly! 

A few posts back I mentioned that I'd like to start doing some digi's that were associated with different countries. I did an old phone booth (I'll call it British), and today I'm adding wooden shoes for Holland. 

Filled with tulips!


I just like polka dots...in fact, they kind of look like cheese...also a product of Holland! 

These have the Frisian flag...the hearts are red on white with blue stripes between. I'm from The Hague, but Frisians are also Dutch...just a different area.

Digital Stamps are available in my Etsy Shop: Carmensplace@Beyond the Fringe Crafts

Now that I'm back, I have to get soaping! I also have the Ridgeview Card for this month to make up, and I have two anniversaries coming up....I know they're expecting home made cards. Better get busy!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
Blessings,
Carmen

  1. Carmen, these are great images. My husband is Dutch and we have a son and family living there, so this is such a bonus. Thanks so much for being so generous.

    2. Bijna goed :-)) alleen het woordje blei moet blij zijn. En ik vind het echt leuk dat je je Nederlands nog zo goed beheerst. Mijn Engels is echt niet zo goed.
      Thank you for de wooden shoes digi.

  18. Thanks for the great digis! I've never been to Fort Mac, but I have a cousin whose lived there a long time. And Tyrell is a fantastic museum, isn't it!? We took our kids there last summer...every time I go, that museum gets better and better. Glad you had a good trip, and welcome back! :)

  19. Hallo Carmen,
    Als Nederlandse ben ik blij met de digi.
    En je nederlands is helemaal niet verkeerd,
    maar dat verleer je ook niet.
    Ik ga er zeker een kaart mee maken.
    Groetjes, José

  24. Carmen, thanks so much for these images. They are perfect for spring.

  25. THank you for these. They are absolutely awesome. I have Dutch ancestry (way back but I still feel a connection to it). My maiden name was Dutch so feel connected to my Dutch side. Originally from Tiel and Groenlo areas. I am automatically attracted to images of tulips but these have the added bonus of the clogs. Love, love, love them. Thanks heaps, Suze.

  26. Hallo Carmen,
    ik ben een poosje niet aan bloggen toe gekomen en zie nu pas je schitterende klompen! Heel erg bedankt, die kunnen we wel gebruiken voor een mannenkaart. Ook prettig om je in het Nederlands te kunnen schrijven.
    Groetjes Yolanda
