Perfect weather for crafting....

Hello friends

Well it has been cold and damp in Cape Town today, the perfect weather for staying indoors and catching up with some crafting, after the usual household chores have been taken care of...lol

It is a colleague's birthday on Tuesday and I decided to make her some cards as a gift.  Hope she'll like them.

The stamps are a new purchase from Merrypak.  I just fell in love with them when I saw them.  Decided to use various shades of my VersaMagic chalk ink for a soft matte look... looks as if they have been coloured with water-coloured paints, son't you think?

They were so easy to make.  Think I'll make a few more and donate them to the home Mom is staying in for their year-end bazaar!

brrrrr......I'm off to warm my beanbag for the umpteenth time and then it's movie-time... Not sure which DVD Kendall has set out for us... may just be War Horse.

Stay warm or cool, which part of the world you're from. Thanks for taking time to pop around.

HoiSgaron, daar ben ik eindelijk weer na mijn blogpauze en weekje Kreta. En wat een prachtigs heb ik allemaal gemist. Deze kaart is ook weer een bjoetie. Schitterend. En volgens mij is het weer helemaal in de war. Jullie zitten in de regen en wij hebben nu een hittegolf met temperaturen van 35 tot 40 graden!! En dan ook nog sneeuw in Zuid Afrika....... Ongelooflijk!! Ik hou van sneeuw, maar dan wel als het winter is, hahahah. Liefs, Nicole
