Cocktail wishes


 The Outlawz
Case Study - Case the Sketch

Good Day

Slowly I'm getting my mojo back and that makes me super excited. It is my brother's birthday soon. He is a bit odd, so you can not do the usual male thing, so I decided to take up the challenge of using diecuts. In the end I've only used diecuts and a peel off sentiment. The striped paper is from DCWV All stacked up glittered paper. The base die and the sentiment die is from Simply 2 die for and the margarita, which I build with acetate and tissue paper, and leave diecuts are from Sissix. As final touch I have cut a straw in pieces, added a bow from my stash and used some silver glitter on the edge.

Challenges I'm joining:
1. The Outlawz Tuesday colour challenge 25 December - CC1225
2. Case Study Challenge #122 - Case the Sketch
3. Happy Campers Craft # 7 - Food or Drink

Merry & Bright



Good Day

I have been very quiet late due to the fact that we were away for our summer holidays. We just came back and I thought I'll give you a bit of how we celebrate Christmas in South Africa. In a sense it is totally different from the Northern Hemisphere, since we have temperatures between 28°C & 40°C. Here, Christmas is in the middle of our summer school holidays and most people are on holidays, with friends and family and many of them next to our beautiful coast. They do celebrate it, like this little penguin from Digi Darla on the beach. The papers are from my stash and I used a Cuttlebug emboss folder and Spellbinder diecuts.

Challenges I joining:
The Outlawz Colour Challenge 18 December with twist of wings
Sweet Sketch Wednesday #185 - Sketch
Digi Darla's #42 - Holiday cheer with embossing

Thank you and wish you all a very blessed festive season and may love and laughter fill your days and may you make that unexpected call to an all forgotten one to spread some love!

Thank you for your presence in life!
Hugs
Olga
