Birthday Flowers

Here is a card I made recently using some stamps I had not opened up yet!

Using some lovely Simon Says Stamp stamps, a bit of Copic colouring, nice designer paper and some twine.  Simple but I like it!

It's been a busy time for us (that's why I have been so quiet) and now that we have let the cat out of the bag to my husbands's family, it's no longer a secret!  Between January and today we have sold our house, bought some land and are moving into a rental property for the next 2 years whilst we build our "dream home" on a lovely piece of land in Brenton-on-Sea in the Western Cape. A little piece of heaven is all I can say.  I'll leave you with some pictures.  We move out in the first week of July!!!  So, yes, I am busy with many other things, like de-cluttering, selling off what we haven't used  in the last 3 years, just taking this opportunity to get a fresh start!

Beautiful long beach, lovely water, great food, gorgeous sunsets from our land.

Looking forward to this change!

What a pretty card, Brenda! Thanks for sharing the photos of your side of the world. My DH found South Africa the best place he had ever been too - the Land is beautiful! So happy to hear your news and I'm sure the Lord has provided for you to make a fresh start, as you say in the Land He brought you too!
