Shoe.....



Good day

A little bit of black and white inspiration for today. My digi is from Bugaboo and it is the first time I'm using it. I used polka dot brazzille cardstock as base and kept it quite simple with a splendid circle die from Spellbinders, zebra striped ribbon (also the first time to be used), some peel offs in the corners and black lace with a golf ball embellishment for the flower effect. Final touch is a bit of glitter on the the daisy.

Challenges I took inspiration from:
Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 #104
Crafting when we can #136 - spots and stripes
Double D challenge - Black and white
Crafting by design -  Anything that shines
Digi Choosday Wk3 - Anything goes

Thank you for your visit. Have a super day!
Hugs from Africa!

Ballerina dress rehearsal




Good day

It is almost half trough January and I only make my first post now. Hope everybody had an enjoyable festive season and that you are all fired up for 2017. I shared this piece of wisdom on my Facebook page as my wish for 2017: 
    T.E. Lawrence
    All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.
So make your dreams possible.

I started the new school year by making this project, just to get my creativity on the go. For my project I used a digi from A Day For Daisies and is called dress rehearsal. I used papers from Helz Cuppleditch' Speciale delivery stack and flowers from my stash.

I used the following favourite challenges as guidance:
A Day for Daisies  #158 - More than 2 layers
Penny's Paper-Crafty #311 - Anything goes
Sweet Sketch Wednesday2 - Celebrate 2016 with your sketch of choice
The Outlawz Tuesday Colour Challenge 10 January with twist of image or embellishment with B

Hope you have a lovely day!
Hugs from Africa!

Beautiful old people




Good day

What a busy month that has past. Can't believe it is December already, it feels like I have missed a month. Even Blogger has a new look since I last opened it. Hopefully it is good thing.
With everything going on and me being away, I came home to no internet and I could not post this project before the end of November. This was November's digi for Digistamp4Joy's Facebook challenge. I made a birthday card for a lady whom will celebrate her 80+ birthday in early January. The sentiment was on my table for a while now and the colurs just came together with the paper from Dovecrafts' back to basics IV.

Challenges I took my inspiration from:
Aud Sentiment #169 - Anything goes with sentiment
The Outlawz Tuesday Colour Challenge - 29 November - Monochrome
The Outlaws Wednesday Sketch Challenge - 30 November
Digistamp4Joy #131 - Anything goes with twist of adding sparkle

Thank you and have a fantastic day!

Fuchsia, my favourite



Good day

I've been busy organizing this year's Christmas fair at our church. A new challenge, although I have been part of the organizing team for a few years. It starts on Monday and is lasting for the whole week. I sure do look forward to it. On the other hand it is not my favourite time of the year in blogland, since I do not celebrate Halloween what so ever. I made this card for one of my bible study ladies whom will celebrate her birthday in November, just after the market. It is our freebie from Margy, for this month's progressive challenge over at Digistamp4Joy's facebook page. This is my favourite flowers and I decided to use one of the less know colours and added a bit of shine with peel-offs in the corner and in the ribbon.

Challenges I used as guides:
C.R.A.F.T challenge #387 - Add ribbon, sparkle and shine
The Outlawz Wednesday Sketch challenge SC102616
Penny's Paper Crafty #301 - Anything goes
Digi Choosday #Wk 43 - Anything goes
Tuesday Throwdown #317 - Add a border

Thank you and have a lovely day!
