Friends forever

Hi there!

I am making the most of the time in my craft room this week, as we will be on our way to South-Africa this coming Saturday, and there will be no card making or blogging for the next month!

The card I am sharing today was inspired by 2 challenges:

Just us girls  ~ Bird

&

Addicted to cas ~ Sky

Bird and sky sounded like a great combination of challenges!



I painted my sky with blue watercolor paint on watercolor paper, and added my own sentiment and Silhouette cut birds on a branch.

You might want to use the sentiment...






Thanks for visiting me today!

Oooo, dit is net eenvoudig stunning, vrou!!! Ek verkyk my aan daai verskriklike mooi voeltjies en die vreeslik elegante tak waarop hulle sit - dit vloei so mooi saam met die sentiment se pragtige letters en die waterverf lug. Ek dink dit is 'n absolute wenner vir albei die challenges!!! Ek het nou gou weer gaan kyk en dit is regtig vir my verskriklik mooi!!!! Mal daaroor!!!

Groete en lekker inpak - ons gaan jou darem verskriklik mis terwyl jy weg is, maar ek weet julle sal julle kuiertjie geniet!!!

Your card is wonderful. Did you create the Silhouette bird cut file? I love the swirl of the branch with those sweet birds. And thank you for that beautiful sentiment. I have used your sentiments many times when I do multiples for charity cards! So I think of you often. Have a wonderful trip- I loved my visit to South Africa!
