Photos instead of a card

Yay, I'm still alive! I have FINALLY got my home line fixed. It's so nice to be on-line again.

I have been so busy these last two weeks. Today I finished at work, the office is empty, everything is gone. It was hard work and lots to do and organise, but it's all done. Now I guess I need to start looking for a new job. For some strange reason one is not finding me, lol!

If you managed to read some of my previous posts you will know that I was doing a photography course. I loved it! It was only the fundamentals of digital photography, but I learnt so much. I am really enjoying taking pictures now that I actually know how to use the camera.

For our final class we had an early morning outing, we went to the Botanical Gardens down the road from me, and was I lucky it was near my house, cause we had to be there at 6 in the morning. Anyhow, I wanted to share some of the photos I took, seeing I do not have a card as I have not had time to do any crafting in the last 2 weeks. Hopefully you like them.

Playing with the white balance

Oil painting, just for fun!

I saw today that some of you have left me comments which I was not even aware of. I have made my comments a little more secure as there has been so much spam lately, what is it with these people, they are so annoying, but let me refrain and move on! As the saying goes, if you can't say something nice don't say anything at all. Thanks for your comments I loved them, and was definitely not keeping them hidden on purpose.

Seeing I am a lady of leisure now I might actually find some time to make a card again. I haven't been able to visit any of my Ladybug Crafts Inc DT members, they must think I don't love them anymore.

Nothing further from me. It's almost bedtime, I'm just watching Show me how first, woohoo, our one and only local craft show.

Hot Stuff

I am online, I can't believe it, lets hope my connection lasts and doesn't die on me like every other time. Yes, I still haven't had my line checked, I will, some day real soon, lol.

This card I made about 2 weeks ago, but haven't been able to post it. Maybe just as well cause I had such a busy weekend I didn't make a thing, so nothing more to post now in any case.

This image is from Bugaboo, it's from the Sassy Gals range, and I love those images! I think they are so nice for guy cards, instead of the usual, golfer or handyman, or maybe a fisherman.... So who agrees with me, or do you think they're too risque?

I coloured the image with my prisma pencils, in fact it was a mix of prisma and lyra, then I cut it out with a craft knife. I used a previous Taylored Expressions sketch, I love the pdf file available from them with all their sketches it's super handy. I did the two circles with a nestie circle die, and the front one I put through my cuttlebug with the polka dot template.

I have to share quickly, I went to see Enrique last week Thursday, he was here for the opening of the Cricket 20/20 series. Anyhow, I am not his biggest fan, I don't even own a single CD, but a friend of mine wanted to go, so I said okay I'll go see him. Well he impressed me so much I'll go and see him again any time. What a genuinely nice guy, so down to earth and really appreciates all his fans, no matter who they are or what they look like! Of course he was yummy to look at, even if we were far, far away from the stage.

That's my post for today, pretty short and sweet, but I know no-one wants to be bored with lots of waffle, and who has the time to read it all, lol!

It's been a while since I've posted, but I've been a bit busy and haven't had a moment free. We had our department farewell, which was fabulous, I've attached some pictures below. But first about my card.

This is one of the super cute images from Ladybug Crafts Ink, and it's called Buttercup In the Doghouse. I made it with a new home in mind, thought it would be perfect with the sold sign, lol. I struggled to get a decent photo though, clearly my photography course is not helping. Kerry rescued it for me with photoshop, but in real life this card is SO cute.

As usual I coloured the image with my prisma pencils and blended it with sansador, then cut it out with a square nestie die. I hand-wrote the 'sold', which was luckily just one word, I would not be brave enough to write much more than that. Unlike Paula who does the most beautiful hand written sentiments.

On to our farewell. This is the main entrace to the lodge, it is really pretty.

This was the Cheetah run. You cannot image how fast these animals are if you have not seen it yourself.

Here I am with Tarzan the Cheetah and then of course Bumblebee the python, she was adorable.

Now I am done and hope you all have a great week. I am looking forward to having a realiable internet connection again one day. The way I have to work at the moment, losing my connection every 5 minutes is driving me insane. I want to visit my favourite blogs and leave you all some comments, but it's not possible at the moment :-(

Take care.
