This is my third project for the Crafter's Digital Art Centre Progressive challenge, part 3, with the theme of autumn. The image is from Just Inklined, provided by CDAC. I've coloured it with aquarelles and used some perfect pearl on the wings of the butterfly. I also did some 3D with the butterfly, to give some dimension to the card. I've used some brazzille card stock and some glitter daisy paper and added some peel-off corners.
I am also entering:
A Gem of a Challenge #30 - Sketch
Craft Catz #101 - Autumn
CDAC cdacpc3 - digital image
For everybody in the northern hemisphere, I wish you a colourful autumn and I'm sending you all a bunch of sunfilled sunflowers to cherish throughout the cold dull winter months.
Thank you for visiting.
A friend of ours is celebrating her big 50 soon. I had this tag with sentiment for quite a while now and I could not resist the owl digi from Marlene. I found it very cute. I've used Midnight Madness sketch for the layout. The paper is from Wilson & Maclagan and I added some leaves that I punched out. The birthday sentiment is from Annette, although I altered it a bit with some punched out numbers.
I'm entering the following challenges:
Midnight Madness #122(mmsc122) - Sketch
CCEE stampers # 1138 - Add a bird
Raise the bar # 76 - Things with wings
Have a fabulous day!

Just a quick hallo again!
This is one of that quick cards that comes up from time to time, especially when you have boys that are very popular at parties. So my oldest came home with a haunted house invitations for Saturday night. Luckily there are a few challenges that helped me with this one.
I found the digi at GTC's Craft Corner. I used some Brazzille paper in purple and did some distressing in black. I used a fiskar brick texture plate for the background in frame and a nestie for the frame. I resized the ghost and used some perfect pearl on it. To set the perfect pearl I use some hairspray. Finished it off with a spider charm. I printed a second ghost with sentiment and made a pop-up inside. I also used some perfect pearl on it. The corners is punched with a Bugs fiskar corner punch. I know a lot of people print the right size paper for a card but there is always some corner that falls off, that I recycle, so I have a drawer full of bits and pieces of paper, that I normally use for punching or in this case for the back of the frame.
The challenges I used as guidelines:
CAS-ual Friday CFC20 - Mini cards - my card measure 4x4 inch (10x10cm)
Cupcake Craft Challenge #160 The darkside - only purple and black - hopefully the white ghost inside does not count.
Top Tip Tuesday Challenge #51 - One for kids
Thank you and have a nice day!
Just to share some good news. After 18 months in blogworld I finally won my first challenge over at Digi my World. Thank you Annie. It took me by surprise, I must confess. So, for more to win for everybody they are sharing some blogcandy every week, $5 store credits at their shop - Digi my World and they have some nice digital stamps available and new releases on Fridays.
Now for my post,

A quick hallo again
This is my second project for the CDAC Progressive Challenges #3, with their autumn theme. These images is: The lady from Liastamps and the applebowl from Glitterbabes. Both provided by CDAC. I've used the sketch from Sketch on Thyme Thursday Takes #56, my first time to join them, but there sketch suited my idea on the images. When I saw these images the first time, it seems as if this lady could not make up her mind, that is why I coloured the apples in three different colours to confuse her more.
Have a nice day!
I had a weekend without internet, but tried to play around a bit. So with some deadlines I might be a second or two too late.
Nevertheless, here is my card. Since it is autumn in the northern hemisphere, there are quite a few challenge blocks with the autumn theme. I've used one of the CDAC digis, designed by Gurukitty, provided for the 3rd round of the Progressive Challenge. I've coloured it with aquarelles. The paper is from my stash and I used my Carl leave punch for the leaves, finished it of with some brads.
I'm entering the following challenge blogs:

This is a bookmark I made with one of the CDAC progressive Challenge digis(cdacpc2), from Jen's Digi Stamps. The theme is back to school and it was international literacy week, last week. My sentiment in Afrikaans read: "Reading extend knowledge". Something that lies very close to my heart. The paper is from The pet stack from DCWV. I added a photo from my boys and finished it of with some beads from my stash.
Have a nice day!

It is a lovely spring Monday down here, with sunshine, although still a bit of chill in the air for the moment, but the temperature will rise definitely.

Today I'm not quite sure on how to do my post, since it is a challenge with a bit of differnce. The Crafter's digital Art Centre have a mini paperbag album swop. You have to make a mini album with paperbags, for jounaling and photos. The idea is to make an album for your partner, with something that she likes and with a touch of your own. This is the paperbag that I used, 12.5 x23.5 cm or 5 x 9 inch. The other requirements are:
- 6 digital images
- 3 x tags
- 3 x pullouts
All papers and embellishments is from my stash unless otherwise mentioned. I've added some inspirational words in Afrikaans and English on each page.
My Partner, Janina from Port Elizabeth in South Africa, is a non fussy lady, which likes all shades of blue. She'll be using her album for herself. So, here we go!
I just could not resist, since the theme of the page is: Me and this lady owl looks as if she loves herself.
Charisma Cards #35 Anything goes - Just something different.
