Hello everyone,

Although it is very cold, we still enjoy the bright, sunshine  days of South Africa. Between watching the World cup soccer matches and the rugby test matches between the Springboks and Italy, entering  card challenges is still my favourite pastime. I received my Lili of the Valley stamps last week so you are going to see a lot of cards featuring these lovely images. For this week I enter my card for the following challenges:

Lili of the Valley Thursday Challenge #55 – Sketch by Dawny and flowers

Stamp Something – Something Summer

Teddy Stampers Challenge #14 – Summer Bears

I used the following for the card:

  • White, pink and green cardstock
  • My Mind’s Eye Designer paper “Quite Contrary”
  • Lili of the Valley stamp S138 “Window Box”
  • Lili of the Valley stamp “General Greetings Small”
  • Spellbinders Nestabilities “Classic Scalloped rectangles”
  • Spellbinders Shapeabilities “Flourish Accent”
  • Paper Hydrangea Flowers
  • Pink pearls
  • Twinkling H2O’s for colouring

Last week we took a short break at the guest farm Saamrus in Magaliesburg. Really enjoyed the wide open spaces, to walk in the mountain and the clean fresh air of the farm. As this is a pet friendly getaway we took the dogs along and, oh boy, did they enjoy the river and mountain walks. It was bitterly cold and in the evenings the fireplace was the best place to be. Here are two photos of my furry friends. 

The little one, Katie, did like to sit in front of a small fan heater in the mornings:

Twyla, the Labrador, loved the cool water of the Magalies river:

Thanks for visiting my blog and looking at my card. Hope you like it and enjoy the week.

    Beautiful card Amelia! Twyla looks just like our Lab Molly. They could be twins. We also have a small white Schnauzer, Sparkey. Thanks for sharing your trip and photos.
    Have a wonderful week ahead.
