MERRY CHRISTMAS ...
{DT Project Tammy's Scrapin Corner: Challenge #39}

The weekend has been hectic with presenting another two Scrapbooking Days here at my home studio on Saturday and Sunday.  Fortunately, my dearest friend Michelle flew all the way from Durban to Johannesburg (South Africa) to come and assist me once again.  Without her my Scrap Days would not have been a reality.  So today its all about cleaning up and getting back into a routine again as well as designing layouts and cards. which is after all the fun part of life!

Thank you also for all the lovely congratulations received for our 28th Wedding Anniversary. We had a lovely time celebrating at the movies watching the latest Bond movie, Skyfall.

This week our theme for Challenge #39 at Tammy's Scrapin Corner  is  Christmas. I used the  Christmas Wreath image from DigiDarlas.  You can find it here.   Love this scenic image.

Another centre step card. The wreath, leaf embellishments and sentiment was coloured with H2O's and dry chalks. The corners were created with another paper folding technique.

I really do hope you will play along with our Christmas challenge this week at Tammy's Scrapin Corner.






So onto the challenge scene again with this:

Thank you to all my lovely Followers old and new for all the love you leave behind.  Please know that each and every comment is treasured.  The promised 400 Follower celebration candy will be up for grabs during the course of next week - so don't stop keeping your eyes peeled on this little space in blog land.

  29. Dear Desire,
    I congratulate you extend warm for your later 28th Wedding day, and you and your husband wish you many happy years together.
    Your card is again a fantastic and wonderful work. I like your style as you design a card very well. You always look very happy. This is probably because, with you, the sun, the more often seems as here in Germany laughing ......
    So now you can read both texts times and see if you have understood everything.
    Many greetings from the today cold and gray Germany sends you Carmen
    PS. is in South Africa now summer?
    Liebe Desire,
    Ich schreibe heute mal mit dem Google Übersetzer. Ich hoffe es kommt bei Dir auch verständlich an.
    Ich gratuliere Dir Ganz herzlich nachträglich zu Deinem 28. Hochzeitstag, und wünsche Dir und Deinem Mann noch viele Glückliche gemeinsame Jahre.
    Deine Karte ist wieder eine fantastische und wunderschöne Arbeit. Mir gefällt Dein Stil wie Du eine Karte gestaltest sehr gut. Sie sehen immer sehr fröhlich aus. Das liegt wohl daran, das bei Dir die Sonne öfter scheint als bei uns in Deutschland lach......
    So, jetzt kannst Du mal beide Texte lesen und schauen ob Du alles verstanden hast.
    Ganz liebe Grüße, aus dem heute kalten und grauen Deutschland sendet Dir Carmen
    PS. ist in Süd-Afrika jetzt Sommer?
