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!

The new challenge at "Catch the Bug" is Let's Get Punchy.

As I am a Guest Designer for Bugaboo for September and October, I get to play alongside the Design Team, a group of really awesomely talented crafters! and I am having such fun!

The card I made for this challenge uses two digistamps, called Flower Trio and Flamingo - water, plants. (As I usually do in my posts, I add a list of really useful links for you at the end of my post so check it out there, please.)

This is my card:

The images were coloured using Copics, and highlighted with a gel pen. The embellishments are some sparkly lilac gems (not all of them sparkle so well in the photograph, but IRL they do!). The corners are rounded using my corner rounder punch, and the lacy border at the base of my card is made using a die.

The Bugaboo stamps are just the greatest fun to use on your projects, and the Bugaboo store is a maze of departments, each with its own category. It's almost impossible to walk away from the store without ooh-ing and aah-ing and limiting your spending to stay within budget! (and I even saw a freebie or two there - so there's no excuse not to enter the challenge, but remember - respect the Angel Policy and don't share!)

We all have some punches we have forgotten we had, so now is the time to get them out to use on a project to enter the challenge. The prizes up for grabs are so generous, and well worth trying out for.

I hope you like my card and it inspires you to enter the challenge too! I'd love it if you left me a comment or two...
