DS4J Challenge #92: anything goes!

It's everyone's favourite 'theme' and Digistamps4Joy invites you to show case your creations! Just make sure you read the rules!

Everyone in South Africa who can call themselves "Afrikaners" will agree that there is a special beauty about the area called "The Karoo". We've travelled through it a couple of times taking the back roads where you end up seeing much more than if you stuck to the tar. I'll put some pics at the end of the post.

Here's my card using "Karoo Water" (of which there's little ;D )
 ... and if you open the little envelope:
Sentiment: Unity Stamp Co' January 2014 Kit of the Month
Envelope die-cut: Marianne Design Craftables Envelope

Coloured using Spectrum Noir markers

So head on over and share with Digistamps4Joy!

Some pics from our Karoo travels
You never know WHAT adventure lies ahead. Like helping a farmer catch an orphaned new-born lamb!
The road MUCH less travelled

This is how we roll ;D

Nothing to disturb the views

More stunning views

And more...

And these were taken on different trips in different areas of a very, very big part of South Africa ;D


  1. Nou is ek sommer LUS om weer soontoe te ry! Ek mis my werk op die pragtige bruinsprinkaan in die Karoo - daai stilte met net 'n ligte windjie, daai fantasties leemtes - ag - neem my terug na die ou Karoo!

  2. such a lovely card and i have really enjoyed reading about your drive, It is so beautiful. In the UK it is so much smaller, we do not have back rounds as such, and it is very rear you go any were with out seeing a car or a house..Crafty hugs Julie Ann x
