Hello my crafting friends. Can you believe the first week of May has already
finished. Until last week, we have been still experiencing temperatures
in the 30 oCs, with one night 10 days ago at 26 oC at 11pm!!!
HOWEVER, winter arrived with a vengence on Saturday,
with snow falling nearby. It was the coldest day since
last June. After all our hot weather it came as
a BIG shock!
I explained in my last post that last Sunday, two dear friends
celebrated their birthdays.
This is the card I made for my English friend, Pauline, who makes the
most gorgeous cards. She loves pinks and purples, so choosing my
colour palette was easy. Pauline and I have never met, but
correspond via email. It would be lovely to actually
meet her, and have a long chat 'face-to-face'.
A closer look at the two little friends sitting on the brick wall.
Inside my card is decorated to match the front. Isn't that K. & Co. paper
exquisite. Unfortunately, the store only had 2 sheets left, otherwise I would
have been 'forced' to buy all that they had...well, a girl just doesn't have a
choice in these matters, does she...those little paperholic voices say
"yes, you need it...yes, you need it..."
I smothered the roses and butterflies to within an inch of their lives
with Stickles Star Dust.
