Life is sweet blog hop.

 Hi Everyone.
Welcome to my little corner of Africa and to the blog hop organized by the lovely Sandy of The Sweet Spot. I am happy you are here and hope you will be inspired.
If you have come over from Yuenie's blog welcome if not, you may want to start over from Sandy's blog and join in the celebration.
I have been quilling for three months and have slowly become addicted to it. My number one thing for years was sewing but not anymore!
I would say the thing that makes my life the sweetest is Love. First of all the unconditional and everlasting love of God. Love for my husband and my son, my family and friends.Of course I also happen to love all things sweet like chocolate and vanilla ice-cream yummy!
I am happy to share my card inspired by the sweetest thing - love.

This is the list of the talented ladies participating in the hop:

Jacqueline - you are here
Head over to Bronwyn's blog and have fun, and do visit again.
Lots of hugs and happy valentines!

Blue birthday card

Good morning friends.
A good friend has a birthday coming up and she happens to love color blue. I like to use lots of different colors on my cards so I was not so sure if I would love the card but I must say it turned out beautiful. A bit understated and off my usual style but nice all the same.
A bit of bling on the flowers and silver glitter glue to highlight the sentiment. My biggest crafting wish right now is to have a border punch! I can't find them anywhere in my city and paypal does not work in my country so buying online is out of the question.
I will put up my card to these challenges:
Fairy fun fridays- Happy birthday.
The sisterhood of crafters- Birthday.
Creative insiprations-celebration.
Bugaboo stamps-blue and white.
Mami Doodles challenges- use mostly blues.
Fairy tale challenge blog- flowers.
Digidoodle shops best- anything goes.
Delightful challenges-celebrate.
Sarah Hurley Challenge blog- birthday girl.
Thanks for looking and have fun creating........
