Use a animal at Creative Moments

Good day

Alternating Wednesdays means only one thing it is time for another challenge over at Creative Moments and this time the challenge is to add an animal. One of the lovely sponsors are Cute as a Button and I had the privileged to play with New Year Sassie Yorkie. I used paper piecing technique on the tea cup. Paper is from Marianne design's Sweet Romance. Last finishing touch is three flowers and pearls.

Challenges I took my inspiration from:
Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 #137
Sweet Stampin: Paper Piecing
A Gem of a Challenge #220 - Use three of something (3 flowers and pearls)
The Outlawz Festive Fridays 24 May - Anything goes

Thank you and see you at Creative Moments!

Happy 50th

Good day

Another birthday card for a friend turning 50 soon. He loves his motorcycles. I used a Couture creations emboss folder and the motorcycle die is from Hobby Solutions. The sentiment is from Mr Digi. I kept it simple this time, although it was a project that was on my table for almost 3 weeks and I just did not had enough time to finish it. Sad but true.

Challenges I'm joining:
Tuesday Morning Sketches #454 (2nd entry)
Moving along with times#72 - Black & white with 1 other colour
4 Crafty Chicks #404 - Masculine birthday
C.R.A.F.T #469 - Father's day or male cards

Thank you and have a love day!

Curious Cats

Good day

This is just a special card that I made for a friend that had her birthday yesterday. When I chose these images from Bugaboo shop I knew these will do just fine with her and she appreciated it too. I have combined 5 digis from Bugaboo, the 4 cat digis and the I too the cupcake celebrate frame for the outer frame and sentiment. I am very thank full for the PNG and Jpeg files that Bugaboo give. The designer paper is from Marianne design's fleurique stack and I used Jo Jo from Couture Creation's emboss folder. Ribbon and rhinestones from my stash. Images was coloured with Prisma pencils.

I took inspiration from:
Creative Knockouts #247 - Furry friends
Tuesday Morning Sketches #454
The Outlawz Colour challenge 22 May 2018 
Catch the Bug May Bingo - Sparkle, images merged, embossing
Colour Crazy Craft Challenge WK12 - Anything goes

Humorous cards at Creative Moments

Good day

Something different today. A humorous card is not a favorite of mine, though I do enjoy other people's projects. Maybe because I do not always know what a good punch line would be. This time I used an image of Dr Digi, one of our lovely sponsors this week over at Creative Moments. I also browsed their site for a suitable sentiment and since a good friend of ours are turning 50 in a week's time I thought this image and sentiment will just suite him fine. He loves his motorbike and lately they started to tour with it as well. I remembered when spring started in the Northern Hemisphere the bikers could not wait to start driving. Papers are from First Edition's Man Made and the stripes are from W & M. I coloured the image with my Prisma pencils.

I used the following challenges as guide:
Craftaholics R Us #20 - Anything goes
Creative Knockouts #245 - Humorous cards
Aud Sentiment #203 - Cute + sentiment
C.R.A.F.T #467 - Birthday bloghop
Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 - #136
A Gem of a Challenge #219 - It's a man's world
The Crafty Addicts #48 - Spring is in the air

Thank you for your visit and hope you'll pop by at Creative Moments.

Creative Moments # 142 Mother's day

Good day

Another Wednesday and it is time for Creative Moments' new challenge, although it is an anything goes challenge as usual, we also have an alternative of making a mother's day card. My image is from Bugaboo and it resembles most moms, I believe. Moms are miracle creatures that has a lot of hands and talent. The designer paper is from Nellie's choice - Botanic Vintage. All the embellishments are from my stash.

I took inspiration from:
Catch the Bug - April Colour challenge
Crafting by Designs - Anything goes May edition
Cute Card Thursday #527 - Pretty in pink

Hope to see you at Creative Moments, there are some wonderful inspiration from my fellow designers!
Hugs from Africa!
