Congratulations Tone!  I have sent you an e-mail via your blog profile, hope it gets to you!  The sooner you get back to me the better for my brain as it is currently racing at 100 miles per hour!

I also have a card to share today, more Copic colouring practice, this time using a stamp from

I hope that's not too bright for you!

Now onto my Giveaway No. 3.  Here is what is up for grabs, I hope you like it:

I think the Hero Arts fans (I am one too), will be pleased and there is also a nice roll of gorgeous Washi tape in there from Cavalleni & Co.

I'll make it easy today.....no question. Just comment and please DO NOT forget to leave me your e-mail address unless you know that I know you or have communicated with you before!

House is looking and feeling weird now as we started taking down paintings and fixing the nail holes and going through all the filing!  Also, the dining room table is gone, so I am left with a rather large empty space....one month and one day left before we get on that plane, I am sad, happy, stressed, organized and disorganized all at the same time!

Have a totally wonderful day!

Hi Brenda, I can imagine you are feeling kind of stressed and excited at the same time - its never easy to move, such a huge undertaking! But you are still making cards which must help you relax! Good luck with the coming month and a half!

Hi Brenda, you must have real mixed emotions at the moment, sad that you are leaving your friends and happy that you are returning to South Africa. I have never really moved far in my whole life. I moved out of home once to move two miles up the road. We took over my parents house when they died so have basically lived in the same house for 50 odd years. Sorry for rambling, I love how you have coloured your flowers so pretty in fuschia.
Have a great day and don't get too stressed.

fabulous card Brenda!!!!! I absolutely adore the color scheme you used. And I completely know what you mean about when you take the pictures down...it gives the house such a bare, exposed feeling.

Your classes are paying off Brenda. Just beautiful colouring. Lovely card. Boy, the time to leave is really coming round fast. I've moved cities but never to another country. Massive undertaking. Thoughts are with you. Take care

I can't even image the upheaval, both physical and emotional, that you are going through. Be sure to take care of yourself through all of this. But, change is exciting and brings such growth! Love this brilliant card - those flowers simple jump off the card. I love this - one of my very fav of yours! Beautiful design.

Brenda sweetie, I feel through your words all those emotions your going through and I have been there myself. It can be tough to leave a place that has made loads of precious memories. But each time we go to one place and stay, then leave again it's our opportunity to to touch that part of the world. To leave love, and moments of inspiring those around you. I am more than sure that with your sweet spirit that you have made many feel loved and inspired. Just think that you are going back home again, another chance to share what you have learned from your life afar and to share with those back home the beautiful woman that you are.. a woman whom many have missed I am sure and can't wait to see you again. Closing chapters in our book of life can be difficult, but there is always a new one to begin, with even more blessings and opportunities for growth and love. Wishing you much success in your future endevours and I can't express how happy I am that you are returning to your homeland. I have that dream some day to and when I do, I know that I will be feeling that same excitment as you. Thanks for being my friend and for always being such a sweeheart. Big hugs & sending traveling mercies for the big day.

This card i s amazing, Brenda, I love the bright happy colours. Your colouring is great - I especially loved the little girl in your previous post.
Good luck on your move, you seem to have everything under control. But is is a huge job to move, and to move so far, I can not even imagine.
