Autumn on it's way

A quick second post for this day.

This lady with her dog is from Penny Johnson, Stampavie, and was another great inspiration for this time of year where the leaves started to change and fall and a chill sneaks in the day. The paper is from my stach and I made the leaves with the help of my cuttlebug and the frill is from Marianne's design template. Although winter is more associated with black I felt that red for the jacket will blend in more with autumn and will give a bit of warmth.

Have a warm day, where ever you are.


Going places

Good morning hope your day is as sunny and bright as mine.

Since I got so much inspiration from the girls on line, I did some shopping lately. This one is from Stampavie and is calling going places. This lady, all dressed up, gives you the idee that she loves life and loves thrills, although I am not sure whether it is her pet dog or her teddy bear that is with her in the car. So to add a bit of frills I used my trumpet corner punch and some peel-offs for the corners. The dotted paper is from the glittered all dressed up stack DCWV and the sentiment is by hand.
I am entering this week's Cupcake Craft Challenge where Donna has chosen the theme of "Transport".

Have a splendid day.

Psst! Have you heard.....

After such a beautiful late summer's day I would like to share with you this special card. It is for my niece and when I first saw this image from Stampavie I thought it so appropriate for someone who becomes 17. Through all my travel throughout the world it seems as if the "mod" stays the same at this age.
The back paper is from the "lime rickey paperpad" from Basic Grey and the front one is from "the all dressed up stack" from DCWV and I have used a Marianne design CreaTables template to make the centre piece for the ribbon. The image was coloured with Aquarelles and finished of with a spellbinder cut & emboss template as well as the small tag for the sentiment. The sentiment I have wrote by hand in Afrikaans.
I wish her a memorable day and year full off blessings.

Beatiful Friday evening to all.

Dankie - Merci - Thank You

On this grey day I would like to share this colourful card. At last I have figured out the design on my Craft Robo. So the basic red card with sentiment was cut with a craft robo. The happy frog is from the Penny Black series: Toadily Happy and coloured with aquarelles and bordered with the help of spellbinders cutting and embossing. The colourful rose paper is from my stack. With a finishing touch in the corner with a little red peel-off corner.
Sometimes people spoil you with such thoughtful gifts that you surely like to jump with joy. This is exactly how I felt when I made this card.

May all be spoiled on this special day.

Hey Sista!

Good morning on this first day of a new month.

Something different on this new day. I had this template(11x15cm) for a sliding card for a while but had to adjust it a bit to accomodate my image from Stampavia. I must say I am having a lots of inspiration from all the new stamping images. To give some balance I used a Fiskars image on the right side with some confetti flowers and embellishment. The stripy paper worked well to emphasis the centre and I finished the borders with a spellbinder template.

So now I am going to share a cuppa coffee!

Good day!
