Creative Moments with Cute as a Button sponsoring






 Good day

We started a new challenge at Creative Moments and as usual our theme is anything goes. We are sponsored by Cute as a Button this round. I have used the image "Baby Boy" and is made my card for a friend's daughter whom is pregnant but do not know yet what gender it is. We all hope that it will be a little boy. I used paper from my stash and played with my Fiskar texture plate with hands and feet for the inserts. I then used some glittered wet/heat embossing on the dry embossed images. Sentiment is just best wishes for her time!

Challenges I'm joining:
Cute Card Thursday #693 - Anything goes
Crafty Catz #567 - Anything goes with twist of Girly 
Moving along with time #135 - Bingo - Image, Patterned paper, Glitter

Sweet Sketch Wednesday2 # 217 with Sheepski




 Good day

Here are my DT project for Sweet Sketch Wednesday2's second sketch for this month. I love decorating gift bags as alternative to cards since I can make it more personalised than what you would normally get in retail. For this one I went with a boy's theme and used Determination from Sheepski design. I have boys and I love adventure. Our lovely sponsor for October. Paper is from my scrapbook stash and I tried to extend the paper to the background of the image. I used some Fiskar hand punches for the feet and the hands. The sentiment is from TLC.

Turning 50 in style




Good day

Another 50th birthday is on the cards. This time I made a gift card holder in a form of handbag. I have this lovely paper from my scrapbook stash and it just fitted the theme. I used a Beccy's place tutorial for this. I used a little piece of Velcro to keep the piece together. Further added a Afrikaans sentiment die cut in front and a little bow embellishment. 

Challenges I'm joining:
Creative Knockouts #418 - Anything goes
Aud Sentiment #283 - Birthday sentiment

Thank you and have a lovely day!

Golden 50





 Good day

It is not often that I have time to play on a Saturday, but I just had to finish this project. This is the year where we and some of our very good friends celebrate our 50th birthdays. This colour combo is so in a 50th birthday celebration range. I used paper from Young & Chic from Creative Path added some wet embossed birthday sentiment and played with some golden papers from my stash. Added 6 golden epoxy dots.

Challenges I took inspiration from:
Just Us Girls #600 - 6 of anything
Allsorts #640 - Someone you love

Have a beautiful day!
Hugs from Africa!

Talking to the moon




 Good day

I was inspired by a few challenges with this project! I used Conversations from Sheepski design and it came to mind when one of the challenges asked to make a birthday card for 2 people celebrating their birthday on the same day but like mile apart. The paper just suited the colour challenge choice. I used some dies from my stash and a star ribbon to add the final touch. The moon's subtle colouring is just not visible on the photo and darker background. I have fussy cut the image, since I was not sure if I can replicate the background paper. 

Challenges I'm joining:
Cute Card Thursday #692 - Anything goes
Craft Rocket #85 - choose one or more: Ribbon, bow or buttons
SheepSki Design Challenge #54 - Boys and girls come out to play

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