Pretty woman



Good day

My friend is turning 50 soon and I know she loves Blue and red, but somehow I do not have paper with both those colours for a woman. I ended up using this denim colour scheme, which I believe she will also love.
In this card I used Dottie Celebrate and sentiment from Bugaboo. The designer paper has a bling on it and it's from W&M. I have found this strip of faux leather and it melted in with the colours. I finished it of with some brads.

Challenges I'm joining:
Catch the Bug - July theme challenge - Inspired by a Film - Pretty woman
Sweet Stampin - Wonderful woman
Time to Craft #401 - Check it out.

Bloom in your Garden





Good day

We are in the middle of winter here in the Southern Hemisphere. Our school holiday is almost done and dusted and it is the 7th of July! It means we have another challenge at Creative Moments with an anything goes theme. One of our sponsors are Sherri Baldy's Besties. They are such cute images to play with. I have used Garden Fancy Pants Dreaming and I had a friend of mine in mind when I made it. She recently started gardening and she is turning 50 in a few days time - luckily she's not a follower on my blog. The image was coloured with Prisma pencils and I used some chalk on the background. I added the small watering can and spade brads in the corner, that I also had for ages now as well as the brad sentiment on the flower pot. Papers are from my stash.

I took inspiration from the following challenges:
The Outlawz Tuesday Colour Challenge 2-16 July 2019 with twist of adding flower
Stamping Sensations - Earth laughs in flowers
Creative Craft Cottage #120 - Summer
Sherri Baldy My Besties Facebook group Celebrating summer
Tuesday Morning Sketches #510

Hope you pop by at Creative Moments.

Talking about recycling....



Good day

I finally finished this image, that has been on my table for a few weeks now. It probably did not end up as I originally had in mind, but I think she doe snot look to bad in the pastels. I had the sticker ribbon since I came back from France and that is like ages ago. It just fitted the image so I had to look for paper (from W&M) that will go with it. Image was coloured with Prisma pencils.
