Butterfly Tea

One sip of this tea and you are guaranteed to have butterflies in the stomach! My sample picture for the wings challenge at Take a Word. Almost all the butterflies used are from Graphics Fairy - linking to Brag Monday. Oh yes, I nearly forgot - no butterflies were harmed in the making of this design :-) Thanks for visiting!

Knit one, slip one

I am not starting to blog about knitting ;-) If you are a follower you probably noticed my posts have been irregular lately. I have to slow down and made the decision to only post every second day from now on. It is hard for me, because I really love this - but things are hectic and I just have to cut back on certain things.
So . . . . . see you tomorrow and don't worry - Friday freebies are not going anywhere.

Cherry Blossom Tea

I just love the colours on this teacup, I have been waiting for an opportunity to use this image for so long! It is the weirdest thing how sometimes I just can't wait to use an image, but the inspiration is not there - and then  one day, I look at it and ideas just start flowing - love it!

Friday freebie - bird tags

Oh my gosh, I am so happy that it's Friday - the public holiday on Wednesday just made me lazy! You know I love birds, so I made a set of bird related cards - click here to download, use as note or journal cards or gift tags. Have a great weekend everyone!

Strawberries and roses

Due to Blogger problems I couldn't post the freebie on Friday - sorry about that! Right now though I wouldn't mind this plate of strawberries with a huge dollop of cream, the delectable strawberries and the background are from Graphics Fairy - linking to Brag Monday.

Chocolate cake

I have baked many cakes, but this is my first digital one, and might I add - I think it is very pretty ;-) My first attempt at making a vector image - the cake. My entry for the chocolate challenge over at Take a Word. What are you waiting for - get a plate, cut a slice and tuck in!

Friday freebie - mother's day card and envelope

I designed this card for mother's day, but you can pretty much use it for any occasion. Print on cardstock to make it nice and sturdy. You can download it here -  I hope my instructions are clear ;-) Have a great weekend! I used this beautiful french typography and this stunning french invoice from the Graphics Fairy for the envelope background. The card, birdie and birdcage also from Graphics Fairy - linking to Brag Monday.

I am so excited to share with you that today marks a year since my first post! It's truly been a great year and even though it was really tough to keep it up sometimes, it was so worth it! I have made so many friends through blogging and still enjoy every minute of it! I am still in awe of the more than 43000 visits I have had during this year and so thankful for my 145 followers! As a small token of my gratitude - I made this poster for you, just click on the image to save it. I really hope this message inspires you to pursue a dream!
