Are we ready for the world cup?

Not long now until world cup 2010 opens in South Africa! Now in case you didn't know or have dropped by my blog and scratched your head wondering why I am waving a South African flag my OH is South African, I'm an honorary one and have 2 "half saffers" We do encourage that side of their culture, we have Braai's (BBQ) drink rooibos (red bush tea) and sometimes when we find it have boerewors (sausage) although my local butcher says he'll make it when its a "hot summer" i.e NEVER!

My favourite colour was always lilac until I went to Cape Town and everything is blue! This is my DD on top of Table mountain above the lions head and Robben Island to the right where Nelson Mandela spent many years imprisonned. Everywhere was blue blue blue and this was coming into WINTER! Seemed really bizarre seeing Winter Sales signs in June lol!



Onto this weeks card which you may remember seeing me colour a couple of weeks ago - Seeing Through available at Crafts and Me. I'm very pushed for time this week, got 2 poorly sick kids so have been run off my feet so I thought I'd use one of the images I coloured previously and mount on some lovely paper printed from Designer Extremes vol 3. I had this crazy idea to add this black velvet sticky swirly stuff which looks really bulky in the photo, its not but is a major pain to use it and I now remember why its been sat in my drawer for over a year ha! The card does look better than the photo but I might pull it apart again and reuse the image.

Its coloured with promarkers with glamour dust on the gloves, necklace and roses with fantasy film wings :)
