A wedding card




Good day

It seems as if 2019 is the going to be the year to wed. I know 4 immediate friends whom is getting married this year. The first one is in April and her colours is green, white and gold. With the few challenges in mind I started playing. I used a Cuttlebug die & emboss folder for the background. A Fiskar stamp with heat embossing in a Spellbinder square die and a Marianne Design die with some gems and ribbon to finish it of.

Party like monsters


Good day

As mentioned in a previous post I had a little time to finish some of my projects on my table this week. This is an image from Bugaboo and I actually intended to finish it in the beginning of February fro their Birthday bash, but then life happened. I coloured the image with my Prisma pencils. I used papers from my stash that just fitted the image. Sentiment computer generated. I do have a few 16 years birthdays on hand soon.

Share some hearts


Good day

We had rain for a few days now and also loadshedding and with that there was a breakdown at one of the substations, so we did not had electricity for 18 hours. A lot of time to play. This cutie was a freebie from Aurora wings on Facebook called Valentine Sprite. In a sense I did not feel like making a Valentines card with it, so it can be a girly birthday too. I used papers from Marianne's design's Sweet romance and Journaling notecards from Prima marketing. Coloured the image with my Prisma pencils and added some glitter and pearls to the flowers as finishing touch.

I'm playing along in the following challenges:
Crafty Cardmakers #227 - Love
The Outlawz Twisted Thursday 14-27 February - Say it with Flowers
Tuesday Throwdown #425 - Falling Hearts
Moving along with times #91 - Shabby Chic

Thank you and hope have a blessed day!

You add extra colour



Good day

It is the month of February and there is a lightness in the air with all the hearts all around us. I believe it brings mix emotions to everybody since not all of us are excited about this time of  the year, but in the end it is about giving love to other people. I was sponsored by QKR Stampede with this art palette image this round at Creative Moments. We always have an Anything Goes theme, but we added a twist of romance this time. I used my Nellie Snellen Heart dies and papers from W&M. Colour the image with Prisma pencils and added some glitter to brighten the "paint".
