Welcome to my blog and thanks soso much for spending a little while peeping into my world


whichever order I put them in, these are my passion!

... all from my little home studio in Durban, on the east coast of sunny South Africa!

A last and a couple of firsts ...

But let’s start with the “last” first… This card represents my final card as September Guest Designer for Laurie’s Doodle Pantry. I feel tremendously privileged to have been chosen as the Guest Designer, and to have had the opportunity to showcase Laurie’s awesome digistamps. This month I have come to realise that although each and every image is fabulous, the flower digistamps are definitely my favourites. Thank you for choosing me, Lawrie, and for having the confidence in my cardmaking ad colouring skills – I hope that I did your images proud!
And then for the “firsts” : This card also represents my first attempt at combining challenges, as it will be entered into Doodle Pantry’s September Challenge, as well as the MMSC72 weekly challenge.
Another first is the watercolour pencil colouring that was done on an image printed on handmade paper.
And the last “first” is the little orange flower sequins that are actually nail-art decorations.
I love the look of this card, and look forward to hearing whether you think the colouring on handmade paper is a technique I should pursue and perfect.
