Tag along with Creative Moments





Good day

Can not believe three weeks have gone bye since our last challenge at Creative Moments. We had some fabulous entries. This time we were challenged to make some tags. We have some lovely sponsors again. I had the privileged to have an images from Rick St Denis and its called Queen of hearts hat. She needed to be red with the hearts and I had some scrapbook paper for quite a while that was screaming to be used. I used a Marianne's design heart emboss folder on the black and the die on the tag. I made a smaller version of the image to add on the tag. Thought this would be nice for somebody that loves to read.

Challenges I took inspiration from:
Cheerful Sketches - September challenge
Southern Girls - Tags
Unicorn Challenge #36 - Add charm
Creative Craft Cottage #111 - Ribbon and or lace
The Paper Shelter #353 - Embossing of any kind
Crafty Friends Challenge #92 - Wet/dry embossing

Hope you challenge yourself to make some wonderful tags, especially with Christmas around the corner and join Creative Moments.
Hugs from Africa!

Some inspiration



Good day

It has been such a long time since I have played with a Digistamp4Joy image. But with Spring knocking on our doors this image(JA7-DS4J) was just the thing to use. I made this card for a friend of ours that has been diagnosed with lung cancer and it is more for encouraging. The sentiment I took from Desert Diva. She has a lot of sentiments to choose from.  I have experimented with textured card stock this time around and coloured the image with Prisma pencils. Papers are from my stash.

Challenges I'm joining:
Digistam4Joy - September - Flower Frenzy
Colour Crazy Craft #36 - Anything goes
The Outlawz Twisted Thursday - Add 3 of something

Thank you and have a lovely day!
Hugs from Africa!
