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!

Today, Bugaboo Stamps is the sponsor for Paper Sundaes' Challenge #117 'LET'S GET CUTE' challenge, and as a Bugaboo DT member, I have the privilege of inspiring you with a CUTE Bugaboo card:

The Bugaboo image featured on my card is BUGABOO BRATS - DESIREE SITTER that I coloured using alcohol markers.  She is popped up on three diecuts through which I sewed sequins and beads.  Shiny lilac CARD CANDI was added around the base diecut.  Doesn't she look cute with her auburn hair!?

And the prize you could win just by entering?  Just look at this ...

"Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps:
As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was two years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing!  From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects.  Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week! 
 If your taste runs to rubber (and you know who you are), you can find Bugaboo Stamps   at Totally Stampalicious. And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT  for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug."
