Peek a boo!

One of my favourite blogs to visit is Jeanie's, the Spotted Chick. Whenever I visit her blog I am so inspired to go make a card, and that's exactly what happened when I visited her blog on Friday evening. I just loved all her new creations, and as you may pick up I even followed her sketch from this post.

Of course that is also her That's Krafty Thursday post, and seeing that I used kraft paper, what a coincidence, lol, I will be entering my card. If you don't have kraft paper just use an old brown envelope it is the exact same thing.

If my card looks skew it's not, it's the photo, I promise :-) So this image is from Bugaboo stamps, and I coloured it probably 6 months ago. It was a good thing I have not used it cause now I had it available at short notice, lol! I coloured it with prismacolor pencils and blended it with sansador (gamsol). The image was cut out with circle nestabilities, and yes I am very proud of myself I still remembered how to do that, woohoo.

We have had a lot of rain here in Jo'burg and although it saves me watering my garden it is getting a bit much now. I like sunshine and warm sunny days! Does anyone have that weather, let me know, I'm coming to visit!

Bye for now

Absolutely adorable! That little image is so cute and the papers are so bright and cheery. I love it.

As much as I would love to have you visit me Meahni, we have freezing temperatures and snow on the ground...I don't think you'd like it in Ohio in the winter LOL!

Woo-hoo! She's baaaaaack!! I LOVE it, but what's not to love. Cute image, gorgeous paper, and Kraft too! All the ingredients for a perfect card! Love the embossed background with that red CS too! SUPER DUPER CUTE! Thanks for playing along in my That's Krafty Thursday challenge!! I've missed you! {{{hen hugs}}}

Happy New Year hun, I hope it's a good one for you.
Your card is absolutely gorgeous Meahni, so cute and beautifully coloured.
We have had sunshine today but it's freezing cold, one out of two isn't bad I guess and thank goodness for central heating
hugs Mandy xx
