Happy World Cardmaking Day

Good morning friends,

Today all over the world crafters are gathering in large groups, small groups or even just on their own, celebrating a hobby that gives so much pleasure to so many, and what a pleasure to welcome some new followers to my blog. Thanks for coming by, I am so happy that you find some inspiration here. I hope you continue to pop in and leave me some comments.

At Digistamps4Joy we are also celebrating with a blog hop, and you can find all the details HERE We would love it if you took part. The hop starts today and finishes on Tuesday 8th

This is the card I made for my entry

 
I created a scene which is very much part of rural South Africa. In winter the bare trees and guinea fowl are definitely found in many parts of the countryside, along with the beautiful flowering aloes.
The images I have used are Tree frame, Guinea fowls and Aloe. These are all available at the STORE. and I coloured them with Distress ink pads.
The sentiment is from A piece of Heart  where you can find some lovely freebies.
Finished off with guinea fowl feathers.

These are the challenges I am entering in.
