Hi there!

Anybody out there following the cricket world cup with me?!

So excited that South-Africa just won against Sri Lanka and we are now through to the semi finals!

On to my card for today...



This was the first time I experimented with my Silhouette sketch pens and oh boy... it really is so much fun. Perfect for those cutting files with too many intricate detail to make a clean cut!

I just added a few tiny pearls to finish off my design.



I am linking my card to the following challenges:

The paper players  ~ CAS florals

Casology ~ Blossom


                              

Thanks so much for visiting me today!

ps... this is my last 'live' post for a couple of weeks... I am taking a blogging break... take care... see you all later!

Hugs

Hannelie hierdie is baie treffend met die rooi. Hou van die stuifmeeldraadjies.
Mooi bly

Nou hoe kan ek dan nou nie saam met jou opgewonde wees oor die krieket nie, ne!!!! My oudste staan soggens vroeg op om voor skool te kyk en die wedstryde word almal gevolg!! Natuurlik hou ons ook nou styf duimvas dat die proteas ten minste die finaal gaan haal!!! Oral is daar krieket opgewondenheid hier!!!
Maar nou na jou kaartjie, vrou!!! Daai blom is weer absolute treffend eenvoud!!! Pragtig, vrou!!! En so mooi met die rooi agtergrond en die sentiment so in wit!!! Die perels is natuurlik die perfekte afronding!!! Jou eerste probeerslag met daai pen lyk glad nie na 'n eerste probeerslag nie - dit lyk na 'n geoefende hand se werk!!!! Baie mooi, vrou!!!!
Ek sien jy gaan 'n breukie neem - ons gaan jou mis, maar soms het mens net nodig om bietjie met ander dingetjies besig te raak, ne!!!! Ek het ook besluit om 'n paar daggies bietjie minder met die kaartjies besig te wees en weer aandag te gee aan al die ander goed wat ek geniet. Ek gaan maar op datum bly met my blogbesoeke (hopelik!!!), maar gaan die minimum post, indien enige!!!! Ek wag vir goed wat ek van MFT af bestel het, so wanneer dit hier is sal ek seker weer baie lus wees om daarmee te speel!!! Tot dan sal ek maar laag le!!! Jy moet jou breukie geniet hoor - lekker rus en waarmee jy ookal besig is, geniet dit!!! Sien uit daarna om jou na 'n paar weke weer terug te verwelkom!!
Baie groete, vrou en geniet 'n geseende tydjie!!!

O gids, vrou, val my nou by ek wou nog se geluk met daai 500 followers - my oog het dit toevallig gevang!!! Dis 'n wonderlike aanduiding van hoe jou uitsonderlike en slim kunswerke bewonder word!!! Saam met jou bly oor die mylpaal!!! (weet nie of dit eintlik die regte word is om te gebruik nie, maar prestasie het ook nie vir my baie lekker geklink nie, maar jy weet wat ek bedoel, ne!!!!)
Groete

Congrats to your team for getting into the semi-finals! I love, love, love your bloom, Hannelie! You did an amazing job with the sketch pen, and the die cut sentiment is so pretty! Love those sweet little pearls, too!

A very classy looking card! Love the red and white.

Kim Heggins said...

Stunning card...so beautiful.

Rob I said...

Lovely card. You betcha about the cricket. I'm Australian so waiting to see how we go on Friday. I think tho that New Zealand will win, unless they get way too confident.

Geri said...

So pretty! Love the pearls in the centre of the flower! I've got a few sketch pens that also have not seen much action! Best change that soon!

Hope your bloggie break is full of fun times!

sandie said...

Crisp and clean, looks fab, have a good break x

Karren said...

Ooh I like Rob's comment above about NZ possibly winning the Cricket World Cup LOL. Fingers crossed! Your card is gorgeous - I've been tempted to buy the sketch pens but haven't taken the plunge yet - probably because I don't use my Silhouette enough to justify spending any more money on it :)

Joanne James said...

Hannelie this card is absolutely stunning! So perfectly CAS. I'm intrigued by the sketch pens; I have a few but have never really used them with my Silhouette. I'm off to look at mine in a new light. Enjoy your blog break - sometimes it just has to be done! Thanks for joining us once again for our CAS floral challenge over at The Paper Players this week!

Hannelie, I LOVE your CAS card! Red is my favorite color and this just pops out in the gallery! WOW! Thank you for joining us at The Paper Players this week! Enjoy your break! XX

Ann Schach said...

Clean and simple perfection, Hannelie! The red against the white is absolutely striking! Thanks for playing with The Paper Players this week!

Anita in France said...

Wonderfully crisp and graphic, Hannelie ... and so very gorgeous ... another triumph! Hope you're enjoying your bloggy break! Anita :)

I should be more of a cricket fan as it's a big game here. We even have a 4 day weekend in the summer for the big East vs West game. Alas, it completely confounds me. Not just the game but also how they can wear those sweater vests (even if they are white) in all that heat!!! :)
As for your card - another stunner! Love that bold pop of red and the sweet little pearl added to the sentiment! Thanks for playing along with CASology this week!

Die blom "pop" so pragtig teen die rooi - treffend!
