Red, Green and Yellow

Good Afternoon

Marika here.  I am greeting you from a cold Cape Town, the sun was shinning so brightly this morning that I thought that we will have another sunny day, but no such luck. 

I made a card with a lovely freebie stamp that I received with my latest Papercraft Essentials magazine. This is one of the most beautiful little stamps that I have yet to receive with a magazine. I just love this little winged girl. I used some red pearls on the outside of the scalloped circle.

A close-up of the stamp.  The stamp is from the Wee Stamps and was designed exclusive for Papercraft Essential magazine.  I put some Glitzin Glamour over the wings, just for that little bit of bling.


That's all from me.  Have a great weekend.



This card was made with my friend Brenda in mind. I have not seen her for ages, but we stay in contact on a regular basis. I have promised myself that we will go and visit as soon as it gets warmer and I can get around with a reliable vehicle again.

This card was made using Passionate Coutre Texture card stock as backing. On top is metallic card stock that I punched with a corner punch ages ago from a friends stash.
The white card stock is from Cutmates and cut to a oval using a Simply 2 die 4 die 

Now the challenging part:
I have not done much colouring of any sorts, so decided I need to start brushing up sometime. The corset picture printed on a label printer and coloured with a permanent marker. Well, that alone was a challenge on its on :-) as it makes streaks if you don't colour it right as the label paper is a glossy paper and takes long to dry. Ok, so after ditching the 1st picture, tried again and learned a lesson yippy :-)

All stocks used above is availble at

Thanks for popping in, we, me Charlie and Marika would love some comments !!!
