You rock!




Good day

I'm still on the roll to make some boy cards. This is a digi from Bugaboo and is called Rock Star Boy. The designer paper I used is a two-tone holographic paper  with my Virtuoso Music die from Memory Box and in the back ground I used black gauze paper from DCWV. I used silver wet embossing on the stars and added a Afrikaans sentiment before printing.

Spring thoughts



Good day

I had the opportunity to buy some new paper last Saturday. Always a BIG thing in a crafter's life. This is the 1st image from Digistamp4Joy's facebook progressive challenge and I thought the paper from First Edition's Paper Flower stack, would suite it well, since a friend of mine was in and out of the hospital lately and she could do with something more cheerful.

Challenges I'm joining:

The Outlawz Wednesday Sketch Challenge

Island style




Good day

This is Boozy Brian from Lacy Sunshine and he looks as if he is having some island fun. For a while I escaped to his island while making this card. Lacy Sunshine has a challenge of adding something wild on facebook. Since I stay in Africa, I don't see it as wild, rather normal. That is why I chose this image as a bit of wild. The DP is from my touch of foil from DCWV. The rest is from my stash. I used a Fiskar emboss plate for the left paper. Dies used: 2-die4 leaves & Spellbinder A2 Curved matting basics A and x-cut to round the corners.

Challenges I'm joining:
Tuesday Morning Sketches  #342
Penny's Paper Crafty #268 - Anything goes

Turning 16


Good day


A young lady turned 16 and her grandmother asked me for a card. This is Hannah from Lacy Sunshine and it suited her perfect. Apparently she wants to go to Paris one day and I could not fit the paper to make the printed Eiffel tower visible, then I decided to use the die and stamp from Sizzix to add the Eiffel tower. Paper from True Romance from Kaiser Craft.
