Bright, sunny and cheerful

When I chose this paper it was with one thing in mind, summer! I can't wait for it to return, and I am hoping this way I am mentally switching into summer and somehow I won't feel the cold, lol! This paper is so summery and bright, I almost forgot that officially we still have winter.

The little turtle is from Stamping Bella, and he's called Turtle tots birthday wishes. Isn't he the cutest thing, I love him! I coloured him with my prisma pencils and blended with grumtine and paper stumps. I had to add glitter, you can't have such a fun image and no glitter, and I used my quickie glue pen to get glitter exactly where I wanted it. That is such a clever invention. Don't you just love it when they keep making new wonderful things for us to go wild with, although there is a down side to that, the effect it has on one's bank balance, lol!

The image and mat were both cut out with nesties, and placed on 3d foam. I glazed the flames of the candles with my glaze pen, it's not visible on the photo, but trust me it looks great in real life.


I don't know why, but today it suddenly dawned on me that it is mid August, where has the year gone. It is unbelievable how quick the time passes and yet I'm always wishing the weekends would come sooner.

Before I go I quickly want to say that Stamping Bella now has free shipping for orders over $55 anywhere in the world! And for orders from $40 - $54.99 shipping is only $4.99. Isn't just perfect! Now you have more to spend on those clever goodies they keep making, hehehe.

Let me get going, the heaters are all on downstairs, and I'm a little cold up here in the study. Not even my dogs followed me upstairs tonight, they just stayed under the blankets and carried on sleeping. Oh and am I pleased my cleaning lady is coming tomorrow. There was a garden bird inside my house today, and it made a HUGE mess! Shame the poor thing must've been so frightened. I need a scarecrow for my patio to keep them from coming inside the house LOL.

I love all the orange on this card Meahni. It is definitely very summery. Have you had any of the aweful wind that is going around here in SA?
