Loving thoughts

Hi there!

I have some catching up to do after 3 days without internet... grrr!

These days not having internet is almost as bad as not having water and electricity! Especially if you live far away from your loved ones as I do... internet is like a life line!

I have a card to share for the Casology challenge where the cue word this week is BLACK ,  and the CAS challenge at Addicted to stamps and more.





The flower was cut with my Silhouette, from a clip art image I traced (the black part). It was layered on the white, which was obtained by using the off set function.
Sentiment from a CASual Friday stamp set.


Thanks for looking!

Awesome card. All the black and white space within the delicate flower; what a great idea! One of my favorite parts of your card is the sentiment panel...its shape; like it's a white shadow of the large leaf. Great card, my friend. Bev

Three DAYS without internet? OMG, I would have to do something drastic, like clean the house!! Glad you're back and with a real stunner, too! So dramatic and geometric! Thanks so much for joining us at CASology this week!

Oh my goodness...love the bold contrast and the beautiful movement that the shapes seem to create! The large triangle of white works so well to showcase the sentiment.

Ummmm.....yep.....WINNER, WINNER!!!

Joe, vrou, wat 'n fantastiese blom!! (...en dit sal net so stunning werk as jy dit in helder kleure ook doen ,ne!!) Dit is nou regtig briljant, hoor!!! Mal daaroor!!
Groete.
NS.: 3 dae sonder internet, ag nee!!! Ek sukkel weer met 'n internet wat nie aldag lekker wil werk nie - weet nie of ek dalk een of ander virus het nie!! (ek kon op 'n stadium nie eers op my gmail aanteken nie!!) Hoop dis nou iets van die verlede. Bly om te sien jy's darem ook weer op die lug!!
