At last ...

... Martha Stewart punches are being distributed in South Africa.  You girls are probably having a giggle as these must be old news for you already but I am excited!  There were so many to choose from that it was a really tough decision.  Normally, I make really safe choices when purchasing tools and punches.  I think long and hard about how many times I am going to use it, how pratical the design is, etc but it all went out the window as I purchased my first "Around the Page" set.  Since I have a thing for birds (not live ones) I decided on the Woodland Branch.  

I had a moment to play today and have been wanting to make some cards with this gorgeous image so here it is.  I wanted to add a sentiment but as luck would have it, one of my ink cartridges ran out. Of course!

Let's get digital - JUGS 37 Technique Challenge

I love lazy Sundays.  It is 11:23 and I am lazing around in my PJ's cutting paper and enjoying my 3rd cuppa.  Hopefully, you are doing the same.  This week the challenge over at Just Us Girls is to use a digital stamp, image or even paper on your project.  If you have never tried digi before you will find loads of freebies out there to get you started.  It is great if you do not have loads of stamps for card making.  Go to the JUGS website for more information on this challenge.  There is also a direct link to some free goodies from Lauren Meader over at  My Time Made Easy.  So, I headed straight there and downloaded her free digital stamp.  You can find these adorable little sea creatures over here
Thanks for stopping by.  Hopefully, you are also enjoying a lazy day. Cutting up paper or watching the soccer?  Ayoba!  It is great to be South African at this moment in time.  Even though I am not a soccer fan (my man is) I cannot explain the atmosphere in Africa right now.  It is awesome!

Just Us Girls Challenge #36

This card is for the JUGS Challenge #36.  Pop on over here and see what it's about.  Every Saturday they post a new challenge.  It is great fun and a good way to play with something new.  I very often end up making cards with colors, designs or digital images that I would never have thought to use or which are not exactly my thing.  This weeks sponsor is a company called *Wink *Wink Ink and they are offering a free image to play with.  This sweet image immediately made me think of this piece of patterned paper and I made my card in record time.  
Thank for stopping by to take a look.  I have to run ...  We have wine club tonight and the hosts have decided it will be fun to dress for the occassion so I need to go and find something black and white with a hint of fabulosity (I think it would be easier to make a card)!
