This month of March 2012 marks the ONE YEAR anniversary of my card making journey! To celebrate I'm giving away a $10 gift certificate to GinaK Designs' store! It might help stocking up on inks or refills or go towards the purchase of a set. (NOTE: There's a new release coming 8 March!)

  1. Geluk met jou herdenking ;) So bly jy geniet dit so baie soos ek!

  2. Happy Anniversary! I recently celebrated one year of my cardmaking blog too, so understand how much of a milestone that is.

    A favourite card I've made recently was for Valentine's Day. (Coincidentally, it uses images from Stamp TV and was for one of their challenges!)

    Here's the direct link to the card:

    The reason I've chosen this particular card is I learned a new technique for this one, which was how to make the ribbon rosette that is featured.

  3. What a lovely way to celebrate YOUR one year stamping anniversary by giving to others. I just adore Stamp TV...I hope this link to my favorite card I just made is what you are looking for.

    I chose this card because of its simplicity, black and white with just a touch of color. I used Gina K's free digital patterned paper "Black Pin Stripes" along with the matching Labels 16 stamp from Gina's "Wishing You Joy" stamp set. May God continue to bless the work of your hands...(((HUGS)))

  4. Dankie vir die uitnodiging Riette!

    Ek dink die kaartjie weerspieel my styl en dit was vir my n blog hoogtepunt om n CASual friday challenge daarmee te wen.
    skuus as ek dom is, maar hoe gaan ek te werk om jou page te 'like'?

  5. Congratulations on your 1 year milestone Red! :) I find it hard to believe you have only been papercrafting for that long... you are definitely talented my friend!
    Here is my link:
    This is my first attempt at an art collage card, and I was happy with how it turned out...I must say I have not had as good luck since then, :/ but will continue to try this technique.
    Big hugs to you and continued success in your beautiful craft endeavors!

  6. Red, congrats are your first year cardmaking anniversary. Looking at your gallery, I agree with Karen that its hard to believe you've only been doing it for a year, since your creations are beautiful.
    One of my favorite cards (and techniques)is one I made for Karen and that I entered in a Stamptv challenge (my first win, btw). The challenge was to make your own dp, which I did using distress and a butterfly. I did some sewing, which I've learned to love. You can find my card at:
    Red, keep up the fabulous work you're doing. May you have many successful years. Hugz and Blessings!

  7. Red congratulations on your 1 year anniversary. You are very talented and deserve praise for your work. Hope the next year brings many crafting adventures.

  8. Hey! Your candy has been added in the Blog Candies section at Feline Playful! Hope you get lots of traffic via Feline Playful blog!

  9. Thanks for your kind words! I'm a new follower here! Congrats on 1 year too!!!

  10. Baie geluk met jou 'blogaversary' Riette! Voorspoed vir die 'nuwe jaar' en ek hoop dat al jou kreatiewe drome gaan waar word!
    I would like to link to my favourite card on my blog at:
    I created this card for a StampTV challenge and used crackle paint to create a cracked glass/porcelain look. I really love how this card turned out.

  11. Congratulations on your one year and thanks for posting on the blog hop.

  12. I don't have a blog so I picked one of your cards " Flowers for Granny". I love gate fold cards. Congrats to your anniversary.

  13. Happy Anniversary Riette. I love your work it is stunning. I have a blog, but don't know how to link just one card so I selected on of yours "My boy Lollipop" it is oh so cute.

  14. Happy anniversary! I myself just started bloggin this year, that's why I'm linking to one of my first posts. I actually won a Lily Pads challenge with this card :)

  15. Congrats on your one year anniversary!!
    My favorite card from last year is

  16. I liked your blog. I don't have a blog to connect you to any of my cards. Of your cards, I really like the Gratitude card in the March 26 post. I love how you blended the colors.


Veels Geluk dimensions

This card was made for a friend of my mother's.  "Veels Geluk" means congratulations in Afrikaans. The letters were die-cut ...
