Little Birdie Jane

Hello friends,

Sharing with you today is my guest designer card for In The Pink Challenge blog. What a wonderful opportunity Christine and Sylvia gave me – thanks so much. The theme of the challenge is distressing and the only limitation is that your card  must have LOTS OF PINK! I love pink  and that makes In The Pink challenges a lovely place for me to be. For my card I used a Stamping Bella image “Little Birdie Jane”. I liked this stamp so much and was over the moon when it arrived in my postal box. I struggled for months to get the stamp as it was sold out at most of the online shops I regularly order from. But patience paid off and here is my card.

Challenges:

    Hallo Amelia

    My naam is Carina Els en ek woon in Drie Riviere. Vereeniging.
    Ek volg jou blok nou al baie lank, ek wil net vir jou sê jou werk is fantasties.
    God het jou geseen met baie talent, hou so aan.

    Ek begin nou met kaartjies maak, maar het geen idee hoe julle die stamps
    so mooi kleur nie! Magnolia stamps is pragtig as ook al die ander wat jy gebruik.
    Waar doen jy jou aankope? is daar verskaffers in SA. of weet jy of dit by die
    Hobby x beskikbaar sal wees.

    Jou Pienk kaartjie is ‘n wenner!

    Groete ( Ek is mal oor kaartjies ek volg ook Sharon in die Kaap) en die
    in ander lande.)

    Carina
