Signs of spring



Good day

When I saw this sketch the first thing that came to mind was this little punch of mine. It has been ages since last I used it. And then there was the challenge of your favourite colour combo - Blue & Orange of Green & Pink. For those who follow me, know I love any colours and a lot of it. Though this time I opted for the Pink & Green, since Spring is in the air here in the Southern Hemisphere! The image is from Sheepski Design and it was on my table, printed a while ago. Paper is from W&M and I just had to finish it with some gems and pearls. The flower was on my table from a previous project.

Challenges I took inspiration from:
Colour Crazy Challenge Wk 32 - Anything goes
The Outlawz Wednesday Sketch Challenge 7-20 August

Obey all rules




Good day

The season is changing and there is a bit of warmth in the air. The birds is also a bit more loud in the early mornings. Maybe that brought some uplifting in my spirit.
I bought some new dies for my birthday and I took some time off to play with them. I really took out some old favourites like rubber stamps and emboss powders too.
Witht his project I used paper from Marianne's design's Just for Men. The bottle and glass dies are from Marianne Design Creatables and the circles are from Spellbinder. I went for a blue, craft and orange colour combo this time a round since I only have men in my house and two of them love orange and the other one love blue.

Challenges I took inspiration from:
As you like it Challenge - Favourite combo Blue /Orange or Pink/Green and why

With Sympathy



Good day

Time had come to say good bye to a friend whom had lung cancer. She finally said good bye last night. In a sense it was less than a year since she was diagnosed, but everybody suffers in the end with an illness where only death wins. But I know she is cured now, since she is in heaven.
I used a chevron emboss folder and found the frame in my forgotten scrapbook stash. The sentiment is from Crealies words.

Challenges I took inspiration from:
Digi Doodles Studios #19 - Spots and or dots
