What a wonderful day I had yesterday!

I must say, I am really enjoying using digi images. This one was a freebie that I found. Can't find the link now, so if you recognise it, please let me know so that I can give the proper credit. I coloured her with my trusty Copics. The papers are Bazzil and Kaisercraft. Ribbon and flowers were all from my stash.
The inside of the card has a whole lot of tags again, because it is for the birthday club. I am loving the blue and brown combo!
I had such a lovely day yesterday. I took a drive out to the other side of Jhb, (OK, not quite the other side), but I still had to go through Giloolies, and anybody that knows anything about the roads in Gauteng will tell you to avoid that as far as possible.
I went to meet Paola, and what a lovely morning I spent with her. I was only going to see what stamps she had and leave after a few minutes, but we ended up chatting for hours. Sorry Paola, I hope you were able to get everything done!
While I was on the way to Paola, I got a phone call from Serena at the Scrapbook Company. My Cuttlebug was ready to be collected!!! Mine broke!!!!! Can you believe it? I have never heard of anybody else who has ever managed that. It worked the one minute and the next minute - no cracking noise, not even a whimper - it just stopped working! I only bought the !@#* thing in November last year. I phoned the Scrapbook Company, only to hear that there is no garantee! I wanted to cry, but the young man, I think his name is Eugene, was very sympathetic and offered to replace it for me at cost! If you live in Pretoria, please support them, we need people like them around!
They ordered a new one for me and I collected it yesterday. Now I am a happy camper again. Best of all? I am now the proud owner of a pink Cuttlebug. On the way home I stopped and hunted for some Nestability dies. I found them, so you see - a very nice day indeed! Made a new friend, got some new toys and had time to play too!
Looks like the whole weekend is going to be great. The Bulls won!! Yay!! Top of the log = AGAIN! GO BULLS!!
Have a great Sunday. If the sun shines tomorrow, I will take pictures of my very over the top fairy card.


  1. Love this color combo, and your card came together beautifully!

  2. A stunning card Tertia. Love the colour combo too. Thanks for visiting me as it's given me the opportunity to visit you. Nice to find more stampers in SA. Sharon

  3. I love the blue and brown colours together...beautiful.

    You broke your cuttlebug...that must be a first. I have the Revolution and don't use it nearly enough.

  4. 原來這世上能跟你共同領略一個笑話的人竟如此難得........................................
