Just for Fun !

Morning friends

It's ages since I made a card just for FUN!

It is a brrrrr.... cold, overcast morning in Cape Town, but I am not complaining. Love this time of the year.  It is also a long weekend for us folk in SA and I was up at 6am to make this little card...   Funny how one longs for the weekend to sleep in a bit later, but the internal clock just does not switch off.  So, instead of pacing the passage, I made myself a yummy cuppa coffee and got to work at my craftdesk in my jarmies (pyjamas).  Hmmmm, love it!

I am showcasing Tilda in Ballet Shoes for the very first time, as she arrived in the post this week.  She is adorable!  The papers are the last from a batch I purchased from Paola.  For the local girls, the ribbon and pearls were also a purchase from Paola.  I think the sentiment is one from LOTV.

I've decorated the inside to match the outside and found a challenge to enter this little card into:
Midweek Magnolias - Open Theme

Thanks for visiting me today.  I hope you like my little creation.  If you're living in SA, enjoy the rest of the long weekend.  It's perfect weather for crafting.

Hoi Sharon, wat een leuke kaart heb je gemaakt zeg! Ik vind het ook heerlijk om in mijn pyama te hobbyen. Vooral als de rest nog lekker slaapt.
Je stempeltje vind ik super!

Groetjes Inge

Hi Sharon, I had one of those "just for fun" days yesterday - it does you good, doesn't it! And your card has turned out just beautiful. This is one of my favourite Maggies and you coloured her beautifully. Thank you so much for sharing this with us at Midweek Magnolias :o) x
