Dog by Anne's digital art

Good day

This is sliding in on a banana skin for the Outlawz Progressive challenge for July. This time Anne's digital art has sponsored this image and it's called dog. Though my dog do not play ball he just love to walk and can get very agitated if he does not get his daily walk. I used paper from my Pet stack from DCWV and added thread to it.

Challenges I'm joining:
The Outlawz Progressive challenge - July
The Outlawz Twisted Thursday  27 July - Anything goes
TicTac Toe #8 - centre left to right - circle, linen thread & birthday

Thank you and have a lovely evening.


Good day

I made this card for my mother in law who will celebrate her birthday this coming weekend. Her passion is sewing and this image, from Bugaboo - Sewsun - I have printed almost a year ago and was intended for a needlework box, but it is still just an idea. Since we visited my parents in law this past weekend I did not had time to spend on a lot of ideas. Papers, ribbon and buttons are all from my stash. I used a Spellbinder border die for the scallops and a cuttlebug border emboss folder.

Challenges I'm joining:
Catch the Bug - Recipe challenge - 3 layers, scallops and bright pink
Just us Girls #404 - Wild card use something old
The Outlawz Colour challenge 25 July - Top row left to right

Thank you and have a lovely day!

50... still young and in love

Good day

In the middle of winter it is very difficult to think summer and all the colours going with it. This is a digi from Digistamp4Joy and is July's progressive challenge on Facebook. Well I think you can almost do anything with an image, though this one looked like a wedding card I opted for a special birthday card and since I have a friend whom will celebrate her 50th soon, I thought just maybe this can be a fun idea. She and her husband sometimes looks like newly weds, from there my sentiment.
Paper, ribbon and rhinestone are from my stash.

Challenges I took my inspiration from:
Tuesday Morning Sketches #412
The Outlawz Tuesday Colour challenge 18 July
Digistamp4Joy #139 - Anything goes or special birthday
Crafty Catz #380 - Party time
Colour Crazy Craft challenge wk 29 - Anything goes
Creative Craft Cottage:#92 - Anything goes

Thank you and hope you enjoy your season!

Carpe Diem

 Good day

Something a bit different than my usual stuff. Just love the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches and they are celebrating their birthday for the whole month of July. Unfortunately I'll not be able to play along in all 4 weeks, but I definitely going to try with those sketches that I'm available. I played with dies from IO Stamp, the hats and mustaches and the sentiment is from Nellie Snellen, also a die. The green pastel were more of coincidence than anything planned. I used different textures of cardstock and in the end I might have  put it closer together but that was a choice only after I have glued everything together.

Challenges I took my inspiration from:
Double D - Pastel Party
The Male Room #64 - Add Texture
Craft Rocket #39 - Anything goes
Tuesday Morning Sketches #410

Thank you and have fun in the sun!
