Cheese and Wine with Digistamp4Joy



Morning

 After 'n lovely weekend away with hubby and some lovely spring rain a new week starts. I was asked by Margy at Digistamp4Joy to be guest designer this month with their lovely free image. This is such an honour. I used designer paper from Kaiser Craft's Paradiso stack and some odd and ends from my stash with a spellbinder die and memory box die to make this project.

I took inspiration from these challenges:
Craft Rocket #53 - Autumn
Colour Crazy Wk41 - Anything goes
Crafty Calender - October - Autumn
The Outlawz Wednesday Sketch 101018
The Outlawz Thursday Twist - Autumn holiday

Thank you and have a fantastic day. Pass by at Digistamp4Joy to grab the freebie and join in the fun!
Hugs from Africa!

Decoupage flowers




Good day

I must confess this is not my most favourite time in blogland, since I do not celebrate Halloween, but I do love all the autumn colours.
I made a 3D card. This is my favourite technique and I used to make a lot of these projects and I still have a lot of Images. It is only a bit time consuming to cut all the pieces. Though I have to admit that this one did not take more time than a normal card to assemble. I used kraft cardstock for the base and kept it simple. Sentiment is a stamp from Purple Magnolia.

Challenges I took inspiration from:
Tuesday Morning Sketches #474
Aud Sentiment #214 - Halloween/ Fall
The Outlawz Tuesday Colour challenge - Yellow, Orange & Green
Tuesday Throwdown #413 - Anything Goes

Thank you and have a fantastic day!
Hugs from Africa!

Good day

We are exploring the world at Creative Moments. I was sponsored by Creative Bug with this image of a father and son that went fishing. With my travels I have met a few fishermen in my life and it is another world with all the recipes and gadgets. Luckily my husband is not a fisherman as such, though we did go on fishing trips.
I have used paper from World Travel Collection from BoBunny and some Spellbinder dies and Martha Steward punches.

Feeling Sketchy #202
Crafty Friends #94 - More than 1 die
The Outlawz Twisted Thursday 4-10 October - Circles and Stripes

Bluer than blue




Good day

I just love music cards, whether it is by theme or inspiration. This time my eye caught the challenge at Aurora Wings. So I Googled some songs and ended up with Bluer than Blue by Michael Johnson, and this Primrose Sprite just suited it so well. Then I had to see if you do get blue primroses and got this nice image too. The designer paper from Paper Touch just brought everything together. I used my Prisma colour pencils to colour the image and add the touch of lace with buttons to finish it off.

Challenges I took inspiration from:
Crafty Cardmakers #219 - Lace or ribbon
Aurora Wings #71 - Inspired by music
Incy Wincy 1-13 Oct - Blue and button
Creative Knockouts #266 - Lots of layers
The Outlawz Wednesday Sketch Challenge
Colour Crazy Craft #40 - Anything goes

Thank you and have a fantastic day. Hopefully not so blue.
Hugs from Africa!

Guinea fowls




Good day

With school holidays on hand I escaped a bit and did some crafting. Playing with a few of my favourite challenges. This was probably my very first stamp and it has been ages since I have last used any stamp. It came to mind, though I had to search for it. The designer paper is from L'aquarelle Designs from Ultimate Crafts. I used some spellbinder dies with a feather as the twist.

Challenges I'm joining:
Tuesday Morning Sketches #473
Use your stuff #332 - Forest Frolic
Unicorn Challenge #37 - Autumn/Halloween
Crafting by Design October - Anything goes
The Outlawz Tuesday Colour challenge with twist of a feather

Thank you and have a love day!

Autumn Colours



Good day

It is Wednesday and it is time for another challenge at Creative Moments. With fall in the Northern Hemisphere it can only mean we have to play with fall colours. I was privilege to be sponsored by Digistamp4Joy and got this Aloe image. I duplicate it and coloured it with my Prisma Pencils. The designer paper is from BoBunny's Dreams of autumn collection. Is is the first time I have used the windmill die cut from Creative Talents. All the other papers are bits and piece.
This is a common scene in South Africa, since it is not a very water rich country. And aloe can be planted in the gardens or they just grow wild in nature. 

Challenges I'm joining:
The Sisterhood of Crafters: Autumn colours
Cheerful Sketches - September (2nd entry)
Digistamp4Joy - Spetember flower frenzy
The Male Room #95 - The great outdoors
The Outlawz Twisted Thursday - In the Garden
Crafty Friends #93 - Autumn Colours

Hope to see you in all the splendor of autumn at Creative Moments.
Hugs from Africa!
