Untie the ribbon






Good day

I took some time off in my hectic schedule to finish my card. Though I did received some good news: My eldest went through for hockey to final trials for the region. This is Leilanie from Conie Fong, which I won in a FB competition. The designer paper is from Scruffy Little Cat from Crafter's comapnion, my latest edition to my stash. The sentiment is taken from Betsy Flot's Inspiration station.

Memories of life well-lived



Good day

Our first cold of the winter has arrived....a bit unexpectedly for a lot of people. That is is the wonder of South Africa. You can get up out of bed in the morning and it is still summer and that same evening you can go to bed in winter. With the cold, I took a day of from normal chores and made two cards. This one is the digi from Digistamp4Joy's facebook progressive challenge for April. Somehow I had a feeling for a sympathy card, and while I played with the image in my head the news came of a friend of ours, who's father past away on the 2nd. The designer paper is from Paper Flowers by First Edition. The sentiment is taken from Inspiration Station by Betsy Flot and the rest from my stash, with some liquid pearl. Images coloured with Aquarelles.

Challenges I took inspiration from:
The Outlawz Wednesday sketch 6 April
The Crafty Addicts #12 - Anything goes/Spring time
Crafty Sentiments Design - Lace &/ Pearls
Incy Wincy Design - Favourite colour medium

Thank you and have a fantastic day!
