Stitching real or faux with Creative Momnets



Good day

Time passes so quickly lately, can't decide whether it is because I'm busy or because I'm having fun.
It is time for another fun challenge at Creative Moments. This time to add stitching real or faux. Well I ended up doing the faux version. I was sponsored by Eureka stamp with this lovely cross with flowers. I used odds and ends of my craft supply and though yellow is probably not a sympathy colour I do like the end result.

Challenges I used for my project inspiration is:
A Gem of a Challenge #221 - Yellow
Tuesday Morning Sketches #457
Crafty Creations #368 - Anything goes
Lemon Shortbread #69 - Anything goes

Thank you and see you at Creative Moments.
Hugs from Africa!

Unknown dancers




Good day

A travelling weekend have passed but this morning I had some creative moments to spare. I took some great inspiration from a few of my favourite challenges and used a digi from Sheepski designs, that I have won lately. It was just one of those that I just could not resist ever since I saw it the first time. And what better way to use it in red. I used my Prisma pencils to colour. The paper clip I had to colour with permanent markers since I did not had a red one anymore.

Challenges I'm joining:
Allsorts Challenge #471 - Girls night out
Craft Rocket #49 - Birthdays
Moving along with times #73 - Girls birthday
Tuesday Morning Sketches #456

Thank you and have wonderful week.

Happy 50th


Good day

Another birthday card for a friend turning 50 soon. He loves his motorcycles. I used a Couture creations emboss folder and the motorcycle die is from Hobby Solutions. The sentiment is from Mr Digi. I kept it simple this time, although it was a project that was on my table for almost 3 weeks and I just did not had enough time to finish it. Sad but true.

Humorous cards at Creative Moments



Good day

Something different today. A humorous card is not a favorite of mine, though I do enjoy other people's projects. Maybe because I do not always know what a good punch line would be. This time I used an image of Dr Digi, one of our lovely sponsors this week over at Creative Moments. I also browsed their site for a suitable sentiment and since a good friend of ours are turning 50 in a week's time I thought this image and sentiment will just suite him fine. He loves his motorbike and lately they started to tour with it as well. I remembered when spring started in the Northern Hemisphere the bikers could not wait to start driving. Papers are from First Edition's Man Made and the stripes are from W & M. I coloured the image with my Prisma pencils.

I used the following challenges as guide:
Craftaholics R Us #20 - Anything goes
Creative Knockouts #245 - Humorous cards
Aud Sentiment #203 - Cute + sentiment
C.R.A.F.T #467 - Birthday bloghop
Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 - #136
A Gem of a Challenge #219 - It's a man's world
The Crafty Addicts #48 - Spring is in the air

Thank you for your visit and hope you'll pop by at Creative Moments.
