L♥ve

Hi there!

A lovely cool Saturday morning here in the UAE. I certainly wish the weather could be like this the whole year. Winter in the UAE means max temperatures of 20 - 25 degrees Celsius!

Just. Perfect. Weather.

I'm here to share a card I made with two challenges in mind:

Freshly made sketches (sketch)

&

Cas-ual fridays (color blocks)




The love panel was cut with my Silhouette, using the font Times New Roman. I erased the inner circle of the 'o' and replaced it with a small heart. I also welded it to a small flat rectangle to 'ground' my sentiment.




Thanks for visiting me today!

Have a great day!

So pretty! Love how you created the word. I really need to use my Cameo more! This looks like some of those popular dies that are so trendy now!

Really LOVE this, Hannalie!!!

Kelly Griglione said...

You are so smart, Hannelie, why buy those word dies when you can just make them on your Silhouette?! Really love how you replaced the middle of the "o" with a heart too, such a great detail! Glad you joined the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge!

Linda Callahan said...

Love your bright bold design! So glad you joined us at FMS!

Jen Brum said...

Oh Hannelie! This is amazing! I love that clean look that is so bold! Love that love banner! Beautiful! Thanks for joining us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

Bobby said...

I love the way your word takes the place of the banner in the sketch. And the colors are fabulous.

Geri said...

You are rocking that machine girl! Swapping out the center or a heart is absolutely CLE-VER!!

I have been using the welding feature quite often lately to create my own designs rather than buying them (I know it is only .99 but it's all about the fun of a challenge!)

Fabulously vibrant colors in a stunning clean & graphic design! You really need to check out the new Card Concept Challenge blog cuz one of the styles is Clean & Graphic! Your cards will totally dominate the category!

Jy praat van 'welding' met jou silhoette, vrou, en ek dog 'welding' is iets wat my pa in sy garage gedoen het!!!! (verskoon maar my onkunde!!)
Jou kaartjie is ge-'welding' ongelooflik!! Als van die stunning kleure tot al die fancy tricks met jou sentiment verdien beslis oor en oor daai VIP shoutout!! Geluk, wel gedaan!!
Groete
