A Simple Thanks

So I am still in the "use up your scraps" kind of mood and found a few pieces of pretty Lawn Fawn "Bright Side" papers lying around so I made a very, VERY, plain card.  I used an MFT die for the Chevron,


Who says it does not snow in South Africa!  Well, it is actually snowing in a fair amount of places in South Africa right now, from the Cape right up to Johannesburg.  Of course, I am not necessarily talking Minnesota or Colorado type snow, but, it's still enough to get people excited!  Here are some  pictures I found on the web of an area just 30km or so away from where we are.





Apparently, according to some Pietermaritzburg old timers, it has snowed here in December, which is the middle of SUMMER!

Things are progressing rather nicely with the renovations, all on track for us to move in by the end of the month!  I'll try to snap a few pictures this afternoon when I do my rounds.

Wishing you all a fabulous day!

Love the contrast between that pretty paper and your chevron die-cut, Bren! Perfect CAS card!

Crazy weather there - I hate seeing that white stuff, knowing it'll be here before too long - Yuk!

I'm excited for you! So glad the renovations are almost finished - really looking forward to seeing some pics! Sending hugs, as always! :)

I think this is lovely, especially the longer horizontal orientation. Snow always looks better in pictures! And i'm so glad your renos are almost done!

I love the graphic design of your card!! Those pics of the snow make me realize I should stop complaining about the hot weather we've had here:). I'm so glad to hear your move in date into your new home is getting closer! Can't wait to see pics!
