LIVE YOUR DREAM ....
{DDCC #60 + Stamp Something:Summer + ABC:Anything Goes}
I have been very naughty again, not having a card project ready this week for my design team work over at Dutch Dare Card Challenge. The challenges are bi-weekly now, so really I don't have any excuse. But, I made up for slackness and created another project for my DT work which puts me a whole month ahead now and hopefully I won't get kicked off the design team any time soon ... thanks Karin for understanding.
Challenge 60 is a colour inspiration guided by the picture below ...
... and this is what I came up with. A simple creation of flower pots. I usually associate flowers with Summer so I am also entering this card into this week's Stamp Something challenge. How cute are those little bees zooming in on the flowers ...
Its a beautiful Sunday here in Johannesburg, warm sunny weather, but I have just heard the latest weather forecast on the radio which forecasts some cold wet weather moving in by Wednesday. So unfortunately the winter woollies are not heading to the back of cupboard yet.
Wishing you all a fantastic week and remember to live for the moment as the late John Lennon said:
Life is what happens while we busy making other plans.
