Going solo for Christmas




Good day

I am abnormally late for our challenge at Creative Moments this time..... had bit of other stuff to attend to. This time around the challenge is Creepmas, something between Creepy and Christmas. Luckily there is always an "Anything goes" option too. I played with Solo from Sheepski Design.
The desogner paper is from BoBunny's Mistletoe collection. I took diecuts that I have cut but never used for previous projects. It just came in handy this time around.

Challenges I took inspiration from:
Cheerful Sketches December challenge
Sheepski Design #21 - Celebrations
The Outlawz Colour Challenge 4 December - Monochrome red
The Crafty Addicts #55 - Anything goes/ Christmas
Crafting by Design - Holiday Anything goes

Hope you'll pop by at Creative Moments
Since this will be my last post for this year I hope you will all have a very blessed festive season.
Hugs from Africa!

As much white as possible with Creative Moments

Good day

It is time for another Creative Moment challenge. I had the privilege to play with 2 image of two of our sponsors. This time around we were challenged to used as much white as possible. Personally I just love whit on white cards, though this time around with the images it was a bit of a challenge. 
I did add them to different challenges, so please scroll down.

With the first project I used bits and pieces of my stash with an image called New Hope from Cute as a Button. The sentiment is from Desert Diva. You can browse around, since she had quite a lot to choose from. I added some confetti snowflakes with some glitter.

With my second project I played with paper from The Touch of Foil stack and The Twinkle Glints stack from DCWV. I used a Martha Steward leave border punch. A leave die for the corner leaves and some peaarls. Image was coloured with Prisma Colour pencils. Image is from My Besties and is called Christmas Puppy....one of my wishes too...
