Progressive challenge Christmas Card

Good day

Can't believe it is already the last day of May....for some summer has started and here with us we are anticipating winter. Somehow a good time to get crafting.
This is the progressive Christmas Card challenge of Digistamp4Joy's digi for the month of May. I just love this camel's face. The backing paper is from Dove's crafts and I added some foil to bling it up. I used both dry and wet embossing on this card.

Lady in Red

Good day

What a hectic few weeks that has past. We are preparing for a few weeks Africa trip and we have to sort out all the visa applications and other preparations. So, there is not very much time to spend in the craft room. I did however enjoyed it again. This is for a lady whom celebrating her birthday tomorrow. I did brows through some challenges and could not resist to play along. The image winter Lizabeth from Lacy Sunshine. I was specially inspired by Crafting when we can's technique of no lines, something that I did before and it sure gives an image a whole new effect. Dies I used: Spellbinder Perfect petals &           Spellbinder A2 Locking loop, I used a piece of wired ribbon and found these beautiful heart buttons. The metal is foil I used with my corner die. The backing paper is from Paper touch.

For my boy

 Good day

I am having a problem with my lack of creativity lately. My boy just came in yesterday and asked when do I start with his birthday card. He'll be 12 on Monday. He wants something with hockey on it. Well Google is such a nice tool from time to time. I got this image from a colouring book site. I played with bits and pieces from my stash and this was the result.
