A small thank you




Hello

An addiction is a bad thing....a very bad thing. I have unpacked all my papers and crafts last week with the intention of concentrating on the neglected issues in my life, but I still come and visit blogland with a cup of tea. With all the thanksgiving challenges I thought I need to say thank you to a special family whom had an immense effect on my life this year and with this lovely sketch from the Outlawz it all became a domino effect. But then.... I decided I'll not post it, then Cindy did not let of the hook that easily, so here is my project. The digi is this week's freebie at A Day for Daisies also with a bunch of nice colours in their challenge. The designer paper is from Basic Grey's Lime Rickey pad. I used mulberry orange and a basic brown for the sentiment from Cuttlebug. The oval done with a Spellbinder and the swirls is from Marianne's designs and gems from stash. 

Challenges I'm joining
A Day for Daisies #57 - Thankful heart and Autumn Colour challenge 
Digi Darla's #38 - Thanksgiving / Thank you
Pile it On #47 - Yellow, Orange, Brown
Scrappy Frog's Challenge - November - Give Thanks

Have a lovely day!
Hugs

Tea for one







Good Day

After a very tiring week I am back. Today is also the start of my boys' last 2 weeks of school and exams for this year. Short school days ahead, where I still have a lot to do before they stay at home.
It is also the last round at the Crafter's digital art centre's progressive freebie challenge and this time Priscilla gave us a bonus image, too. I decided to make a pocket card with the teapot where you can take out the lid for a message. I used a marble effect paper as base to print the images, where after I've cut it out. I've printed a mirror image of each so that you can look at it from both sides. I used another card stock to glue it to with a fold on the bottom to make it stand. I used H2O pencil to highlight the edges and I added some gold heat embossing.

My Favourite Favourite!



Good Day

I just had to make this project before I start my day. Yesterday I saw all the freebies Beccy's place have available and I just love Poppies with red being my favourite colour too. All the papers and embellishments are from my stash, I used a Martha Stewart border punch and I've coloured the image with H2O pencils. I also played with my favourite challenge over at Shelly's image called Roll 'Em, where you have numbers 0 - 9 with a requirement at each and you use random org. to find out with what you have to play. Hopefully using a flower digital image will qualify for 1 & 7.

Challenges I'm joining:
Digi Haven's November Challenge - Anything goes
Chocolate, Coffee & Cards # 25 - Stripes
Addicted to Stamps & more - Bingo - Birthday, stripes & white
Shelly's image TTT - Roll 'Em - 1 Use Flowers, 7 Digital image, 8 3 Buttons
