If you've stumbled across my blog, thank you for visiting.  It's been a long time since I shared a post.  It gives me great pleasure looking back at the beautiful cards I made over the years.  Lots of lovely memories of the design teams I was on and the hours spent making these cards and other projects.  I hope you enjoy your visit and are able to draw inspiration from my work.  I am still available to answer any questions you may have.

Warm wishes to you.

We have a Blog Hop

Good Morning Everyone

Welcome to my blog if you are visiting for the first time.  For those who have been here before, welcome back!  There is something special  happening today, as you can see!

As part of the SA Cardmaking and Papercraft in SA Facebook group, I welcome you to our very first blog hop.  We have 9 South African crafters' taking part this month, isn't that awesome?

Just so you know you're on the right track, your previous hop would have been from the super-talented Ansu's blog. She and her sister are the owners of  Ivytree Studio.  Their patterned paper is of the finest quality. You need to pay them a visit.

The brief was to make a card, but I've gone a step further and made 2 cards and a notepad, representing some, if not all, the colours in the Rainbow.   

Supplies used for this Card:
Base Card:  White, pre-cut scalloped card from Docrafts
Patterned Paper:  Simple Stories, Emoji Love range
Coloured Cardstock:  Papermania by Docrafts, Assorted Solid cardstock
Sentiment, Flowers, Ribbon and Die:  From my collection

Roberta Gamildien, owner of the online Scrapbook Faerie store has kindly sponsored a prize for this blog hop.  Please visit her store for all your scrapbook, card-making, mixed media and general paper-crafting needs. She has loads of products for you to choose from.  She also has a FB page, Scrapbook Faerie, please pop around and Like her page, to keep in touch with new products that arrive in her store.  Thank you Roberta for your very generous prize

I've browsed through Robert's website and was thrilled to see that she sells Santoro's Gorjuss Girl stamps. I still have 2 Gorjuss Girl stamps in my collection, from my design team days over at Totally Gorjuss.  After stamping one of them, I dusted off the old Copics (some have dried out completely...yikes), to add a bit of colour to our girl.  Apologies,  my colouring skills are not what they used to be, I am so out of practice.

She is a little beauty, isn't she?  I'm so pleased I still have her in my collection.

Supplies used for this Card:
Base Card:  White, pre-cut scalloped card from Docrafts
Patterned Paper: Simple Stories, Emoji Love range
Coloured Cardstock:  Papermania by Docrafts, Assorted Solid cardstock
Image: Santoro Gorjuss Girl, Sitting Girl stamp
Colour medium: Copics
Ribbon: Simply Gorjuss
Sentiment: Lily of the Valley
Flowers, Leaves and Die:  From my collection

The Simply Gorjuss ribbon was such a lovely feature to use for this corner.

This sentiment is still one of my favourites.

So Friends, those are my Rainbow creations for this month.  Remember, if you want to be considered for a prize, you must leave a comment before you hop over to the next blog.  I will post the name of the Winner once the blog hop has closed.  That Winner will receive a Promocode, in order to make use of the very generous discount on products in the Scrapbook Faerie's Die collection.

Your next stop is to the lovely Valerie Thorpe's blog.   Please hop along and catch some more Rainbows along the way.  

Here is the complete list of participants in case you get lost:

2.     Helen Duffett

Once you've reached the end of the blog hop, you need to go back to The Girl with a Tape Runner's blog to let her know what you liked about each particpant's blog. Before you dash away, I've love for you to join as a Follower on my blog and I will return the favour.

Thank you for playing along with us this month. I hope you'll have as much FUN as we have had. Don't forget to leave a comment on each participant's blog, if you want to be considered for a prize.

Happy crafting!
