Forever Grateful

Good Morning

I am not a crafter that often put a sentiment on a card, I prefer to leave my cards without a sentiment and then add the sentiment to the card as soon as I know who it is for and for what the occasion is.

But today's card is different, I made the card and kept on thinking that something is missing and then when I went through my stamps I found some sentiment stamps that I have not even used yet.  The "forever grateful" stamp with the curls looked just right for what was missing on my card.

So here is my card.  It has been a long time since I made a card without a stamped image, but my friend Sharon posted a post with just such a card not to long ago.  She reminded me that it is nice to make a change from what we regularly do.  Sharon's blog is one of the blog's where I find so much inspiration and she is also the person that helped me to start my own blog.

A close up of the sentiment.  The stamp is from Kaisercraft.  I do not own a lot of sentiment stamps, so maybe it is time I rectify that.

The paper is from First Edition Paper - Family Ties.  I added some gems to the centre of the flowers.

I am busy working on a Christmas card (for the past 2 weeks), but I am finding it difficult to get it done, it seems that there are some stuff missing (maybe I need some Christmas mojo), so I keep on moving it back, to the side.  I really hope that I can finish it this weekend.

Thank you for visiting and I hope that you will all have a very pleasant weekend.

Design Team

Good Morning

I am so very excited this morning.  I have been asked to be on a Design Team.  I am just over the moon.

Charlie from ABC Crafts is not just a lady that sells craft goods at very, very good prices, she is also a very dear friend.  I miss her so much as she is living in Pretoria, where I used to live before I moved down to Cape Town, I used to visit her at least once a month to see all the new craft goods she got in as well as to escape from the hectic live of full time work, being a wife and mom to 2 pre-schoolers.  My visit to her used to be my one day that I shifted all my responsibilities on to my dear hubby and I could spend a day chatting and doing what I absolutely love, just for myself.  But ever since my move to Cape Town, end March 2012, I have not seen her again.  We do chat over the phone ever so often, but it is still not the same. 

Charlie, I miss you very, very much!!!!

And now I have been asked to be on her Design Team, it is such a honour, not just because it is for her but also because this is the first time I have been asked to be on a Design Team.

So watch this space.

Please visit her Shop to see the goodies that she sells.

Thank you and have a very nice day.
