Going to Bloemfontein!

I have been very busy this last week. Made quite a few cards, some for orders and some just playing around. I even finished a few scrapbook pages and did all my marking. Impressive if I may say so!
The first card was made for the Stamptacular Sunday challenge. This weeks challenge is to make a Christmas card. I have had this beautiful Angel for a while and thought she would make a really beautiful Christmas card. Papers are Bazzil and some Mulberry handmade papers I found in an art shop. The image was coloured with my Copics and then glitterified (there's that word again!) with Making Memories glitter glue. Flowers are from Enmarc and the charm from the local Beadshop.

The next card was a real challenge for me. A friend asked me to make a Math card. It is for the Maths teacher's birthday and she wanted one of the cards that I make with all the tags on the inside for people to sign. I didn't know where to start, but then I found this stamp at Paper Crazy and saw the video on Stamp TV with the tecnique, can't remember what it is called now, but it just all worked really well and I love the results.The tags are all different shapes.
Paper is 7 Gypsies and Bazzil and I used some raffia to tie around the card and eyelets. The chalks i've had for ages, can't remember who made it and ink is versa mark.

Now for the title of this post! I am going to Bloemfontein for the next few days to watch the Drummie Nationals. I am the official representative from the school and I am looking forward to it. The only thing that worries me a bit is that the weather forcast for Bloem was minus 1 the last few days, so I might just freeze to death if I am not careful.
My phone was stolen sometime this afternoon. I am so angry I can spit! I had to take my husbands car to the panel beaters this afternoon and went to the Mall for some last minute shopping, so it could have been anywhere. My only hope is that I left it at the panelbeaters and some honest person finds it and returns it to me. It is such an inconveniance to go away from home and my family and not to have a phone.
