Orange is the colour...

Hello sweet people out there,

Quite a trial for me to stay away from blogging...
Missing my visits to your blogs like crazy.
Zeenya - my older one has gone for her first long trip (five days) away from home. And it felt kinda sad in the morning but I went for a swim and then to the physio and that took my mind off. Gosh! To think one day, these kids will leave the nest... 
Some of the mums shed a tear or two and my eyes welled up as well but now I am more cheered up as I am blogging. 

Some more good news... sold another 20 cards and the count has gone to 50 so far...So I have managed to fund the education of three primary schoolers for six months. Thanks to all the love, inspiration and support I have received in every which way.


Below is a card that sold as well. 
I made the flowers while I was painting with Aleeza and cut them out fussily and stuck one on top of the other with double sided foam tape.
The rusty orange paper is from dear Shirley-Anne while the polka dotted one  is from Terry and the paper with swirls is from my stash. The flourishes are from Sizzix and the gem in the centre is from Prima.


I found this card too bright and loud but glad it sold...


Will come and visit now...

Hugs,

Monica

Your card isn't too bright and loud, Monica...it's bright and beautiful!!

Well done on selling more cards for the education funding.

I'm sure Zeenya will miss you too, and it makes them appreciate the love of home when they start to spread their wings for the first time xx
