A Little Bit of Africa

Good evening to you all in the land of blog
Oh what an interesting day I have had, firstly the housework, then tidying around the garden from the wind blown items, not sure if I told you our fence is down at the moment, no photo sorry as it looks an eye sore, just waiting for my little guy to come do the repairs (soon I hope) and I have decided to keep on top of the ironing on a weekly basis now rather than a monthly to six monthly one, so did this weeks.  

Then I got to play, yep you can imagine what with but unfortunately although all my dies now work perfectly through the big shot, (plates need to be really straight on the long border ones on some makes of dies cutting machines) the pieces I made I cannot show you as they are for up and coming DT pieces.  What I can show you though is another of the cards made to send to my sister for her friend to sell in the little local shop.  So this is another Le Suh 3D decoupage.
The base layer and contrast is a latte coloured pearlescent card, I used some 7 Gypsies papers and the MS edge punch with some ribbon from stash.  Just look at that cute little new baby elephant :)

Now as always I would like to thank all my wonderful visitors for their lovely inspirationally kind comments, which allows me to hop on back over to visit them in return.

Would like to remind you that my 700 follower candy is now running here

Stunning card....wow! Awesome use of colours and materials - I love it!

Mandy said...

I guess I just as well save myself the trouble of concentrating really hard and trying to focus on what I am typing and just leave you masses of comments saying "stunning card" as I just know they all will be lol.
Whatever style you choose to do you always make such beautiful cards Kate.
I'm so sorry I have been a terrible blogger and not been to visit for far too long, fingers crossed I will feel more "normal" soon and not fall asleep after blogging for only 10 mins! The kids have taken to switching my laptop off and chucking a blanket over me wherever I am slumped.
I have missed you hunny & thank you for all your lovely and supportive comments I really appreciate them lovely lady
big hugs Mandy xx
