Happiness is...

Hi there!

I know, I know I should be packing! This time tomorrow we will be up, up and on our way to Madeira!

But I really wanted to play along with the The card concept's challenge to use a butterfly theme!

This will also be my second take on the Case this sketch challenge this week.

* Edited... thanks Lynn for reminding me that this would qualify for the challenge at Time out challenges



My card this time in the clean and graphic style which I so love.

As usual, accompanied with my own sentiment :








The challenges:

lovely card... love the quote especially ^^

Petra Swart said...

Joe, vrou, dit is nou seker een van die mooiste skoenlappers wat ek nog op 'n kaartjie gesien het!!! Die kleure is asemrowend mooi saam en die sentiment is so pragtig daarby! 'n Absolute pragstuk, vrou!!!
En jy is sowaar oppad Madeira toe!! Kan 'n vrou dan nou gelukkiger wees as dit!!! Teen die tyd wat jy hierdie comment kry is jy dalk alweer terug, want ek is (ALWEER) twee weke agterstallig met blogbesoeke - ja, jy't reg geraai - ek is alweer aan die brei en hekel - elke spaar minuut van die dag; ek geniet dit net so baie soos my kaartjies!!
Baie groete waar jy ookal op hierdie oomblik is!! Ek glo jou vakansie is/was 'n fees!!
