Have some poppy thoughts

Good day

Somewhere I got some inspiration. This is for a special friend whom loves red and black and it has been quite some time that I wanted to used this lovely paper from Bo Bunny's Serenade collection. What good way to use it with this lovely digi from Aurora Wings Elf Poppy. Corner punch from EK Success, Dies from Marianne's design and Spelbinder and the poppy is done with a die from Sizzix from Susan's garden collection.

Feeling blue....?

Good day

What a time we had. After 13 years, we had the opportunity to visit our lovely continent, Africa, again. This time we explored new frontiers in Angola & Zambia. In 3 weeks we've done 9500 km of all kinds of roads. We experienced a lot good things, but the most of all, I realized how blessed I am to be where I am and with what I have. Here are some photo's.

Now for my project:
My Magnolia  project in blue
Tuesday Morning Sketch #259

Hopefully I'm back in blogland, if my creativity can get a kick start. This time with one of my Magnolia stamps. Before digital images, these were my favourite collection. With only boys in my house, this is one of my all time favourites and then I can feel a bit blue too. We are celebrating 2 birthdays this week at the Bible study and what better way to celebrate it in blue. My paper is from Back to Basics IV from Dovecraft Collectrion. The outer die is the Adorning Square and the inner one is A2 Curved Matting Basics A, both from Spellbinder. The swirl is my favourite Marianne's design. The flowers are made with confetti and sequins.

The Sisterhood of Crafters - Die-Cuts/punches
Divas by Design - Favourite colour combo with Magnolias
