A blogging friend of a lot of us, Anita (in France), celebrated her birthday on 18 Feb, but nobody knew about it!! To set the matter right Bev and Darnell organized a surprize birthday party today to celebrate Anita's birthday. In the short time I have known Anita, I have come to know her as someone with a lovely sense of humour and a great talent for card making!!! She is a great CAS artist!! Her blog is always a joy to visit!!
So, Anita: ceci est pour vous et vous êtes la star du jour!!
I could not make up my mind if I should do a true ‘Petra card’ with lots of layers and patterned papers and flowers, or a CAS card seeing that you are a CAS lady, Anita. In the end I decided to use the retrosketches#105 sketch and I tried to keep it CAS.As all my French stamps were stolen last week (LOL!!) , I decided to go for an Afrikaans sentiment, as Afrikaans is my home language and I thought that would make it a bit more special!! The sentiment says: Juste pour vous! (By now you have to be impressed with my French, hey!! LOL!!)
So this is the card I made specially for you (…for your 29th(???) birthday (maybe not quite!!?? LOL!!!):
I won’t keep you any longer, Anita, you probably have a lot more blogs to visit!!
Profitez de la journée
Salutations et les voeux de l'Afrique du Sud
P.S. Luckily we’ve got translators available on the net, hey!!! (No way I can speak a word of French!! LOL!! thank goodness I don’t have to pronounce all of that!! LOL!!)
I don’t think anyone will forget your birthday again, Anita!! Next year we’ll be on time!!
Thanks to the lovely Bev and Darnell for making this a fun day for all of us!!!
