Let the adventure begin

Good day

My second card for today. One a bit out of my comfort zone. I played with some dies and black & white glitter paper. I used a Fiskar emboss folder for the lines. The balloon die is from Xcut and the sentiment from Creative Expressions safari collection.

Challenges I took inspiration from:
Double D - Only black and white
Tuesday Morning Sketches #499
The Outlawz Monday Greetings 15-29 April - Embossing folders or dies
The Male room #109 - Anything goes or one layer card
Craft Rocket #58 - For men or boys

Thank you and have a blessed Easter Weekend

Ostrich look

Good day

I stole some time from my normal chores and made two  male cards. The first one is made with a digi from Digistamp4Joy. Unfortunately the shp closed down a while ago. Paper is from DCWV's ssafari chic stack and the sentiment a die from Country Crafts.

Challenge I took inspiration from:
Crafty Sentiment - Just for the boys
Feeling Sketchy #215
Aud Sentiment #225 - Happy Birthday
Colour Crazy Craft Wk15 - Anything goes
The Outlawz Festive Friday 19 April - 2 May - Birthday

Thank you and have a blessed Easter Weekend

Good day

Today I'm sharing a card that is in such contrast of the season we are having. We are currently in the mist of autumn with all the warm colours and falling leaves. This is a floral corner of Bugaboo that Jodie shared on Facebook. I used a Spellbinder die in the mint green and a Crealies stitch die for the square. Designer paper is from Trim Craft. Image was coloured with my Prisma pencils.

I took inspiration from the following challenges:
Creative Knockouts #293 - Spring is on its way
Colour Crazy Craft #14 - Anything goes
Catch the Bug April anything goes
Feeling Sketchy #214
Moving along with times #95 - That spring feeling

Thank you and hope you are enjoying the season!

Creative Moments anything goes

Good day

Another month has past at high speed. Here we had our first feeling of real autumn, though the signs have been with us for a while with all the falling leaves. On the 7th of a new month it also means we have a new challenge at Creative Moment. As alway it is an anything goes theme and we are sponsored by Eureka Stamps. I opted for a sentiment this time, as we will have a new baby in our friends' circle soon. I used some of my scrapbook embellishments and some paper from M&W.

Challenges I took my inspiration from:
Allsorts #514 - Sentiment as focus
Tuesday Morning Sketches #497
Creative Knockouts #292 - Anything goes
The Outlawz Festive Friday 5-18 April - Anything goes

Thank you and see you over at Creative Moments.
