With some spellbinder dies.

Hobby & Skippy



Good day

Today I just played, because I am inspired by everybody's beautiful creations. I played with Hobby & Skippy from Lacy Sunshine. Somehow he reminds me of our time in Europe and in these times there were also musical festivals and then you would find these street musicians on the corners of the street and on the plains. The designer paper is from First Editions' Leaf and I really took bits and pieces from my old stash, found the lovely green vellum and used a spellbinder music emboss folder. Image was coloured with Prisma pencils.

Challenges I'm joining:
Cheerful Sketches June
Di Digi's - Summer fun
The Outlawz Tuesday Colour challenge with twist of a circle
Colour Crazy Craft Challenge Wk 25 - Anything goes.

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

Stitching real or faux with Creative Momnets



Good day

Time passes so quickly lately, can't decide whether it is because I'm busy or because I'm having fun.
It is time for another fun challenge at Creative Moments. This time to add stitching real or faux. Well I ended up doing the faux version. I was sponsored by Eureka stamp with this lovely cross with flowers. I used odds and ends of my craft supply and though yellow is probably not a sympathy colour I do like the end result.

Challenges I used for my project inspiration is:
A Gem of a Challenge #221 - Yellow
Tuesday Morning Sketches #457
Crafty Creations #368 - Anything goes
Lemon Shortbread #69 - Anything goes

Thank you and see you at Creative Moments.

Unknown dancers




Good day

A travelling weekend have passed but this morning I had some creative moments to spare. I took some great inspiration from a few of my favourite challenges and used a digi from Sheepski designs, that I have won lately. It was just one of those that I just could not resist ever since I saw it the first time. And what better way to use it in red. I used my Prisma pencils to colour. The paper clip I had to colour with permanent markers since I did not had a red one anymore.

Challenges I'm joining:
Allsorts Challenge #471 - Girls night out
Craft Rocket #49 - Birthdays
Moving along with times #73 - Girls birthday
Tuesday Morning Sketches #456

Thank you and have wonderful week.

Happy 50th


Good day

Another birthday card for a friend turning 50 soon. He loves his motorcycles. I used a Couture creations emboss folder and the motorcycle die is from Hobby Solutions. The sentiment is from Mr Digi. I kept it simple this time, although it was a project that was on my table for almost 3 weeks and I just did not had enough time to finish it. Sad but true.

Challenges I'm joining:
Tuesday Morning Sketches #454 (2nd entry)
Moving along with times#72 - Black & white with 1 other colour
4 Crafty Chicks #404 - Masculine birthday
C.R.A.F.T #469 - Father's day or male cards

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