"Hello Dolly"

Good day

Autumn is here in all its splendor. I have to admit that I am not fond of getting cold, but I can operate better in cooler conditions than scourging heat. Once again this is one of those projects that looked different in my head when I started than what it ended in. The designer paper is called Afri- Frans from Creative Talents. (Directly translated Afrikaans French) I bought this beautiful emboss folder this morning and could not resist playing with it. Digi is from Digistamp4Joy and is this month's progressive digi on their Facebook page. The rest came from my stash.

Signs of spring

Good day

It is a few days before Easter and everybody is super excited. Here too, but for different reasons. Except for religious reasons we are expecting our first real cold weather and this means we are well into autumn, my favourite time of year. Playing with spring colours makes it a challenge, though I love this image of Createful Heart digis called Hummingbird n morning glory flowers. It is the digi for this month's progressive challenge at The Outlawz. I used paper from Spring Drop by First Edition. The first time I used my butterfly border from Marianne's design.

Challenges I took my inspiration from:
Crafty Cardmakers #186 - Things with Wings
Digi Choosday WK15 - Anything goes
The Outlawz Colour challenge 11 April
The Outlawz Progressive challenge - April
Use your Stuff #259 - Flowers

Thank you and have a blessed Easter!
Hugs from Africa!
