Birthday Card

Good Morning

It looks like our spring has arrived, at least partially.  Apparently we will still have some cold and rainy days, but I must say that the days that the sun is shinning, I am just over the moon.  As you can probably guess, I do not like the winter very much. 

On the other hand I feel that my "mojo" have taken a walk about.  If you pass it, please be sure to send it back to me.  I am not really feeling inspired to do anything at the moment, but that might have something to do with the fact that, after living with family for the past 5 months, we are almost ready to move into our own house.  Yes eventually the documents were handed in and we are expecting to be able to move by next weekend, that is the weekend of the 21st of September.  The excitement of moving into our own house has me so doing other stuff, like planning were all the furniture etc will go........ 

Sorry, sorry, sorry, you see what I mean, I am sure that you are not really here to read about my excitement to move.

So here it is.  This is a card that I made a while ago and only realised now that I did not do a post about it.  And for a change my card has a sentiment on it.

I can not tell you how many time I have made a card only to realise when I have finished it that I put it together the wrong way, meaning that it does not open up the right way. So yes with this card it happened again, luckily it is not so difficult to fix it, so when I fixed this one I decided to "sommer" make it a easel card.

My close up of the image.  This is a  Lilly of the Valley stamp and it is the first time that I have coloured a teddy, not so sure that I have gotten the teddy's colouring right yet, but I will just have to keep at it until I am satisfied.

I also made this flower from scratch, and my little girl picked out the ribbon, she said that it goes perfectly with the red polka dots paper.

So thank you for staying and reading to the end of my post, I really would love to hear from you.

Have an awesome day and please excuse all the ramblings at the beginning, but I am sure that you will understand all the excitement of moving into your own home. 

I might not be posting for a while as I will have to pack-up everything here to get ready for the move and the I will also need to unpack everything at the new house.



  1. Dit is baie oulik...mal oor jou blom met die rooi lint en jou inkleur lyk glad nie sleg nie.
    Baie, baie sterkte met jul trekkery, kan nogal dink dat jy opgewonde is om weer in jou eie bed te slaap.

  2. Marike ek hou baie hiervan. Die blomme is baie kreatief.
    Mooi bly
