Dankie

Hi there!

For most of you, the title of this post would be a very strange word...

DANKIE is the Afrikaans word for "thank you".

When I saw the challenge at daring cardmakers to use a foreign language, I knew I had to create something in my mother tongue!

The card was inspired by a project in issue 72 of Papercraft essentials. It was love at first sight when I saw the patchwork projects featured.

I saw the description for the colours (aqua, lime and white) on feline playful, but chose the patchwork idea BEFORE I  saw the inspiration picture at "colour create"!!!

What a big surprise when I linked up and saw the picture was a quilted duvet!

'n Lieflike kaartjie Hannelie. Ek hoop dit sal baie ander Afrikaanse meisies inspireer om ook hulle kaartjies op 'n blog te sit en ook die challenges te probeer. Pragtige werk hoor, groete Sharon
