As usual at Catch the Bug on a Sunday it is sketch time. With the Critter Chaos we also have a lovely sketch for you! I used Reindeer Trio. I used paper from Hetz Cuppleditch's Special Delivery and embellishments from my stash.

Creations in Pink #17



Good day

Creation in Pink has another lovely challenge in mainly pink for December. If we were home for Christmas I would have had a Pink Christmas this year, but lately we do not spend Christmas at home but with the family and there I do not have a choice of colour. I opted to make a support card instead of a Christmas Card. I used different dies for a change and some ribbon and rhinestones. I used Cheerful Sketches as inspiration!

Come and join with your pink creation.

Bugaboo Holiday Critter Chaos Day 1



Good day

Here it is!!! We all have been waiting for the Chaos week to begin at Catch the Bug! Out first challenge is to create a project with a critter and snow! I have to admit, staying in the Southern Hemisphere were we have a summer Christmas with lovely 30°C outside it is very difficult to make a project with snow on it. So it was a lovely challenge for me this whole week. I have used Winter Bird Trio for my project. I have a drawer with all kinds of Chrismas stuff. The designer paper and snowflake peel-offs come out of that drawer.

Come and join the fun!

Belated post for Creative Moments #182


Good day

I had the opportunity to spend a lovely long weekend with my hubby alone. We spend some time in the Kruger Park with diverse weather from a sunny 45°C to a wet 19°C and all the impala has some newborn babies, we even saw some newborn cheetah and warthog. With all the preparations I did a scheduled post but it went alive 3 days befor the actual challenge and I had to delete the post. So here we go again.
It is time for another lovely challenge of anything goes at Creative Moments. One of our lovely sponsor is Dr Digi. Though most people are in a festive mood, I opted for a birthday card for a freind of ours. We are all in our mid life crisis and he started taking up long boarding at an age of 50. When I saw this image, he came to mind. The image is called Skater Stanley. I coloured the image with Prisma pencils and even tried to make little rosset with bits and pieces.

Challenges I took inspiration from:
The Outlawz Sketch Wednesday 27 November - 11 December
The Male room #125 - Inspired by Ugly Sweaters
Crafty Calender - December - Anything but Christmas but add ribbon
Crafty Catz #486 - Anything goes

Thank you and hope you'll join us at Creative Moments!

Custom made wedding card




Good day

It was a very hot summer this far and suddenly we have a lovely rainy day with half of the temperature than yesterday. Much welcomed. December is also peak wedding season here in the Southern Hemisphere and I had a few cards, then a lady came in and bought them all. I made a personalised one for a wedding couple. I used their invite as inspiration. I played with a few dies from Spellbinder, Sizzix and Marianne's Design. Paper is all from my stash.

Challenges I took inspiration from:
Feeling Sketchy #230
The Outlawz Tuesday Colour Challenge 3 - 16 December - Left top to bottom White Lace, flower & gold
The Outlawz Twisted Thursday 28 November - 4 December - Anything goes
The Outlawz Festive Friday 29 November - 12 December - Weddings
Lemon Shortbread #108 - Anything goes

Thank you and hope you have a gorgeous day!
