Hi everyone,
It's been a couple of days since i was in blogland.
We had a lovely and sunny extra long holliday weekend here in Belgium.
And on friday hubby and i went to Plankendael which is an open zoo.
Last year i had bought a ticket for 2 persons for this park as a wedding anniversay
present for my hubby. It seemed a nice idea at that time.
But because we both have such a bussy life we still didn't got there and last
friday was the last day the ticket was valid so we had to go.
The broadcast had foretold lots of rain but we went anyway because it
was our last chance. We had a lovely time and the weather was brilliant, lots
of warm sun all day long. It's a nice park because they try to bring visitor and animal
together with open cages and things like that. Only rule is no feeding and no
touching the animals and it works just fine most visitors stick to this rule.
Here's a few pics.
Hoi allemaal,
Het is enkele dagen geleden dat ik nog in blogland was.
We hebben een heerlijk en zonnig verlengd weekend gehad hier in België.
Vrijdag ben ik met mijn mannetje naar Plankendael geweest.
Het is een heel mooi park en open dierentuin wat wil zeggen dat ze bezoeker
en dier dichter bij elkaar willen brengen door open kooien en dergelijke.
Enige regel is de dieren NIET voederen en NIET aaien. Maar het werkt
goed, de meeste bezoekers houden zich er wel aan.
Ik had vorig jaar voor onze huwelijksverjaardag een ticket voor 2 personen
gekocht voor dit park, als cadeautje voor mijn man. Toen leek dit wel een leuk idee.
Maar omdat we het beiden zo verschrikkelijk druk hebben was het er nog
niet van gekomen om te gaan. En afgelopen vrijdag was de laatste dag dat
ons ticket geldig was dus moesten we wel gaan.
De weersvoorspelling zei echter veel regen, maar ja laatste dag dus gingen we.
Het was een prachtige dag met veel en warme zon, zalig gewoon.
Hier enkele foto's

The pelicans can come of their island and walk among the visitors
De pelikanen kunnen van hun eiland afkomen en tussen de mensen wandelen

Top and bottom pic, these monkeys were just above my head.
Bovenste en onderste foto, deze aapjes waren vlak boven mijn hoofd
Also the penguins were just half a meter away from us.
At certain times a day you can feed them fish.
Ook de pinguins waren maar een kleine halve meter van ons vandaan.
Op bepaalde tijdstippen kun je hen vis voederen.

Okay, so far this little intermezzo, shall i get on with my card ?
It's a cas card for the Lim challenge and the theme this week is Hello Sunshine
I actually don't know why but it just wasn't my theme. I had the funny
idea captured in my limited brain of wanting to use a die cut of a sun but
i don't have any sun or sunray dies. So i was fiddling around and making nothing
more but a mess and failed cards. I was just about going to quit when it
crossed my mind to make a 180° turn and choose for a totally different take on the
theme. And that's what i did. See for yourself.
I would like to enter this card into following challenge:
Less is More  # 224 Theme week - Hello Sunshine
That's all for today, thanks for bearing with me in this long, long post.
Thank you for your visit and comment and i hope to see you again
next time. Hugs, Veerle xxx
Dat is alles voor vandaag, bedankt om het vol te houden tot aan het
einde van deze lange, lange post. Dank je wel voor je bezoekje en
voor je berichtje en ik hoop je de volgende keer weer terug te zien, groetjes
liefs, Veerle xxx

A lovely summer time CAS card. I´m glad you stuck with it. I like the zoo shots. It reminds me of the years when we lived in Cyprus. There were a couple of pelicans that always wandered around us at a restaurant. One day, one of them tried to steal my camera! How kind of the sun to shine for you on your day out together. Kate x

Your card woes sounded just like a lot of what I've been going through too. Nothing I touch seemed to work like I wanted. Your final card is lovely, however. I liked the CAS brights & the pretty flowers. I'd say it expresses Sunshine just perfectly! Happy Anniversary, even if the wish is just a bit delayed. Enjoyed seeing the pictures of your visit to the zoo, and can see you had a happy time. You & your DH make a handsome couple. I'm so glad you didn't get the predicted rain, and you could enjoy your own bright sunshine. TFS & Hugs too.

A gorgeously bright and cheerful card. Looks like you had a wonderful time. One dont realise how huge pelicans are until you see them in real life.
