Summer Picnic

Hello friends,

There is a new challenge starting today at The Shabby Tea Room and the theme for is “Summer Picnic”. The sponsor for this challenge is Dies R Us and the winner will receive a $10 gift certificate to spend at the DRU store.

In the southern hemisphere we are still in the midst of winter and the past few days were freezing cold in South Africa. Despite of this I enjoyed making this card with its summery feel.

    Joe, die pienke en groene is so lieflik saam, Amelia!!!!! Ek sal nie omgee om saam aan te sit en deel te wees van hierdie wonderlike piekniek nie!!! Alles is so pragtig bymekaar gesit en dis so sag en vroulik!!!! Hou van die rosies, die skattige skoenlappertjies en die pragtige strik!!! Jy is so goed met hierdie Shabby Chic kaartjies, Amelia – ek dink daar is min wat dit soos jy kan doen!!!!
    Groete en ‘n lekker dag!!!!
