Autumn Dreamer


Good day

Finally a very hectic week is done and dusted, schools are closed for a week and we can slow the year end pace a bit. This is Autumn Dreamer from Lacy Sunshine. Heather has a Autumn/Halloween challenge on at Lacy Sunshine's facebook page that ends on the 17yh of October. Though we are entering spring I still do love the autumn colours. I decided I'll make this one for my friend and she loves coffee, from there the sentiment - Anytime is coffee time. I used my Aquarelles to colour and papers from my New Leaf, from First Edition. I opted for a bit of shabby chic look with the ruffed edges.

Challenges I took my inspiration from:
Sweet Stampin - Autumn
Crazy 4 Challenges #405 - Cake and/or coral, aqua/mint, gold and white/ivory (I opted for the colours)
Colur Crazy Challenge WK39 - Anything goes
Craft for the Craic September challenge - Autumn
The Outlawz Twisted Challenge 28 September - Anything goes
Fussy and Fancy #197 - Shabby chic

Thank you and have a great day!
Hugs from Africa!

Outside




Good day

With the warmer weather and everything turning green or spreading sweet smell all around of new blooms you just have an urge to go outside. With the colour challenge's twist I could not resist to play with this digi called Cat from Anne Fenton. It is this month's freebie at the Outlawz progressive challenge.The designer paper is from a stack, Scrap booking paper, that I bought at our local cheep store. It just fitted the theme so well. I used a sizzix square die and a Marianne's design Creatables' for the butterflies.

Challenges I took my inspiration from:
Cheerful Sketches - September
Penny's Paper-Crafty #346 - Anything goes
Shopping our stash #320 - Emboss like a boss
The Outlawz Colour challenge 12 September with twist of Outside
The Outlawz Progressive challenge - September

Thank you and hope you have a fine day!
Hugs from Africa!

Feeling of autumn



Good day

It is always difficult when you stay at the other end of the world and the seasons is a bit different. We are experiencing summer with lovely temperatures of 30° Celsius, though we are still waiting for our first summer rain.
Well this is Digistamp4Joy's digi for this month's progressive challenge on Facebook. And I have finally had time to finish it, though I intended to finish it before the WE, but was pulled down with a terrible headache. The paper is from Colorbök's Splendor pattern pack. I used a Fiskar leave border punch and a die from Sizzix. For the final touch I used a brad and ribbon and peel off sentiment.

Challenges I used as inspiration:
Use your Stuff #279 - Fall is in the air
Crafty Friends#66 - Dies/punches
Digistamp4Joy #140 - Warm colours
The Crafty Addicts #40 - Brad or button
The Outlawz Colour challenge 5 September 2017 - Twist fall
Aud Sentiment #188 - Anything goes with sentiment

Thank you and have a lovely week!
Hugs from Africa!

Spring morning





Good morning

Spring is in the air and it is surely an uplifting for my soul. Not that our winters is that long, but it has been very dry and I had a cold now for 3 weeks. Although I started to train again this morning. Hopefully I can continue now without any further hick ups.

With the spring feeling I had to play with some of my favourtie challenges and most definitely my favourite color combo. Though it is sometimes more of a challenge to make the white on white a wow factor. All the papers are from my stash and I used Spellbinder's butterfly circle, Nellie Snellen's Shape dies and Couture Creation's magical butterfly.

Challenges I'm joining:
Tuesday Morning Sketches #418
Double D - It's all white
Tic Tac Toe challenge #13 - Circle, Flower, Lace
Deep Ocean Challenge #162 - Favourite colour combo

Thank you and Carpe Diem!!
