Good day

Another quick post for today. I need some male cards and I bought these Crea-lies dies in the beginning of the year. Scrolling through my digital images this one from Bugaboo called WorkGus caught my eye. With a few engineers in my circle of friend this will just do. I tried to stick with the black and white theme, though I used a little flesh. All papers are from my stash.

Challenges I'm joining:
Stella says Sketch #510
The Sisterhood of Crafters - Black & White
Penny's paper-crafty #331 - Anything goes
Creative moments #119 - Anything goes / Birthdays

Thank you and have a great day!

Ebony treasure cove

Good day

I have to say I do dream of lazy summer days on the beach, but currently we are in winter, though not that cold, but definitely not the kind of weather to be outside on the beach with swimwear on.

This is a image of Lacy Sunshine called Ebony treasure cove. It was a freebie and I really love Lacy Sunshine images. With all the summer themes I made time to play. The paper is from very first years when I started making cards. I used sandy border from couture creations. The sentiment I took from Desert Diva. The seashells are from my last vacation in December.

Baby boy on it's way

Good day

Where did the time go!!! It has been exactly a month since I have last posted anything. We had a lot of public holidays and long weekends filled with hockey and rugby and I just didn't had time for anything else. Today I just decided to take some time of before I miss another deadline and before the little boy is born.
This is Chicken Run from Di's Digis and it is this month's progressive freebie at the Outlawz. With the lovely colour combo at the Outlawz Colour challenge the inspiration took over. The papers are from my stash and I used a Cuttlebug emboss folder for the diamonds(left bottom) and a Marianne's Design hearts emboss folder( my latest edition to my stash) The eyelets are from Fiskar and the sentiment is from confetti that my sister-in-law gave me as present when my eldest son was born, 15 years ago.

Challenges I took my inspiration from:
Crafty Cardmakers #188 - Add a sentiment
Tuesday Trowdown #343 - Texture
Ooh la la Creations#228 - Something starting with B (boy card)
The Outlawz Tuesday Colour Challenge 16 May
The Outlawz Monthly progressive challenge - May 2017.
Tuesday Morning Sketches #403

Thank you and have a great day!
