Good morning everyone,
Greetings from South Africa on this National Women's Day holiday. We woke in the early hours to thunder and lightning, with a bit of rain...now this is not unusual here by us, but it usually happens only in the summertime...and it isn't summer yet, in fact it is decidedly winter today with an icy wind blowing. It has been raining for the last 4 - 5 hours, soft soaking....I can just see the grass growing this week, but I now see some blue patches so I hope the sun does come out.
We are having a bit of a family get together at my youngest son's house, as they celebrate the completion of some house renovations which just seem to carry on forever, with builder hassles and many other related problems. So a bit of sun will be most welcome.
I also want to welcome my new followers. Love having you here and hope you can find some inspiration and will come back soon. Please let me know what you think, I love reading comments.
My second week as GD for Gerda Steiner Designs
and my card today is made with one of her choices 'Cute cat tied on gift" and you can find it HERE
She also has a lovely freebie of 'Otto the octopus', so you may collect it and then join in the challenge for this month.
This is what I did
Paper...various bits from my stash, embossed the blue with a CB folder and sanded it lightly
Image...cat on gift, coloured with Distress inks, added some dots with a gel pen, and did a little random stamping on the gift. Cut it out with an X-cut die.
Sentiment...Country crafts, a local company added twine and some card candy.
I do hope you will have a go at this challenge with the freebie that Gerda is offering.
I think it will match the following challenges:
