It feels like earth is rotating downwards instead of around ... as time just seems to fly by unnoticed and its one thing in life we can't stop. Another year has lapsed and some of you can probably recall that around the same time last year (feels like yesterday) I posted a card I made for Alisha's 4th birthday. Well its her 5th birthday on 20 July and here's her card ... lets hope she does not peep over Mom Heidi's shoulder when she is surfing the net. I used this week's sketch over at Sketch Saturday as a starting point for the card. Loved this sketch which was so easy to work with.
Then this week's Design Team project over at Dutch Dare Card Challenge is to create a card with cutting dies and/or punches. I scratched through my stash and stumbled across a little tin of die cuts which I have had for years (Ellie ... you might remember these ...). The bright butterfly cuts came in handy and added a cheerful touch to the card. The sentiment translated means 'A Special Day'.
I carried the theme through to the inside as well as to the outside of the envelope.
Its probably been the third Thursday in a row that we are without water. The previous times it was off for nearly 12 hours during the day, only back on at 9pm. Its amazing how one realise during these situations how dependent we are of natural resources and that we should use it responsibly. Sorry, I have been a bit quite in blog land as I am busy with a 21st creative memory album commission as well as some more jewellery commissions. So please bear with me as I will be visiting you all soon to leave some love.
