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!
Hugs from Africa!

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!

Birthday special




Good day

I had a special request for 2 birthday cards on Thursday, but I spend the most of Friday and the whole of Saturday next to the hockey field. Our under 13 team made it to the finals and shared gold by drawing the game 0-0, but with 8 seconds shootout they lost 2-1. But they surprised everybody and a I think themselves too, to go all the way. Yesterday I had time to put my papers together and I made time to colour my image - Fancy from Saturated Canary - today. The designer paper is from Scruffy Little Cat, Crafter's Companion.
