AMBER TURNS 3
Entering this for these Challenges:
Cute little Amber is turning three early in September and I thought it fit to make her a birthday card in which I could put some photos I took of her when she was 2 years and 9 months old.
The patterned cardstock is from FabScraps a local scrapbook manufacturer here in South Africa. I inked the edges of the gorgeous Fiesta Felt Flowers and used various punches to embellish the centres. Happy birthday was stamped with clear acrylic alphabet stamps.

I must just mention that during my friend Michelle's recent visit with us here in Johannesburg, she mentioned that she recently listened to some of Kurt Darren's music and has fallen in love with his music ... especially his Facebook song. Well Michelle phoned me today to proudly inform me that she has bought three of Kurt Darren's latest CD's, two of them being double CD's. Way to go Michelle ... needless to say that yours truly is a staunch support of Kurt (eye candy in my opinion) and of course his music.
Just a quick mention that I have recently made it to the top 5 over at ABC Card Challenge for the Buttons Challenge ... hoo hoo ... thanks so much to the ABC Team for selecting me as a topper. Can't wait to get my blinkie which was an added bonus of being a top fiver.
Been for a marathon spinning class this morning, all of 90 minutes ... of course leaving me with some wobbly legs ... hopefully a yoga session tomorrow morning will sort the legs out.
We are off to Bella Bella (the old Warmbaths) this coming weekend for a weekend visit to a game lodge ... going with a few friends ... can't wait ... of course the return will be marked by zillions of photos ... hopefully of a baby giraffe or two as well.
Thanks again for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your weekend and may the week ahead be a productive and healthy one.

  20. Ai die name van bekende en geliefde plekke wat so verander, maar soos Shakespeare gese het, "a rose by any other name will smell as sweet"... hoop die tydjie in Warmbad was wonderlik. Geluk Amber!! Jy is pragtig... en dankie Desire... Ek het nou sommer gesien wat mens met die bont papier kan maak. Die kaartjie is pragtig.
