LIVE, LAUGH, LOVE ...
{DDCC #68 DT Project: Oh Joy}
Trust you are already having a wonderful 2010 and wish all my blogging friends the most happiest year ever. We spent the last few hours of 2009 quietly at home watching the 2009 Huisgenoot Skouspel show {a local annual music spectacular here in South Africa} on TV and thereafter the Royal Variety Show which was this held in Blackpool, England. This has become quite a tradition with us at each year end.
For our next design team project for DDCC #68 we had to create a card with multi-folds. I quite enjoyed this kind of little interactive creation. Hop on over to DDCC for the tutorial if you fancy creating a multifold card yourself and also have a look at the other DT members' beautiful creations.
I used a variety of acrylic stamps for the fancy sqaure, Live Laugh Love and the decorative corners. The little flower in the bottom corner which keeps the card closed was created with a Fold-It Flower template. All the designer paper is from FabScraps a local scrapbooking manufacturer here in South Africa.

    Good day, sun shines!
    There have been times of troubles when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
    I have never thought that there weren't any need in large initial investment.
    Nowadays, I feel good, I started take up real income.
    It gets down to choose a proper companion who utilizes your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, parts and divides the profit with me.

    You can get interested, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:
