Pearls in my hair

Good day

I had my Friday so differently planned than what actually happened. Since both my boys were on a Land Service Camp I thought I'll use the time catching up on crafting. There are a few challenges that I really would love to join. Then I got this phone call at 7 o'clock the morning: Please come and fetch your boy, he is in severe pain. So I went to fetch him, at the doctor we were informed it is beleived that it is his appendix. So we went to the surgeon. Scan shows nothing, so we had to wait until Saturday morning for blood test. It then showed he has infection and the had to operate to take out his appendix. He was released this morning. At least everything went smoothly and he only needs to recover now.

In this project I used an image from A Day for Daisies called Pearls in my Hair, that I picked to play with when I heard the sad news of Tammy closed her shop, and I just had to play along in the 10th anniversary of Sweet Sketch Wednesday! Paper is from Bo Bunny's Dreams of Autumn collection. The leave and ribbon was from my stash.

Challenges I want to join:
A Gem of a Challenge Wk12 - Anything goes
Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2  - Anniversary
The Sisterhood of Crafters - Three "B"s
The Outlawz Festive Friday 14-27 June - Birthdays
Monday Greetings 10-23 June - Wings
The Outlawz Colour Challenge 18 June - 2 July

Thank you and hope you have a bit more time for crafting.

Feeling Sketchy Guest Designer


Good day

What a surprise when Andreja contacted me to be a guest designer at Feeling Sketchy. I am really honoured. They are one of my favourite sketch blogs. We are sponsored by Ike's Art this fortnight and I had this sweet blossom image to play with. Since I had a lady that turned 60 and she loves red, it all came together. The paper is from Creative Talent clled Boere Retro. I used a spellbinder die for the frame and Country Craft dies for the sentiment. Image was coloured with Prisma Pencils.

I also want to enter the following challenges:
Aud Sentiment #229 - Anything goes with a sentiment
A Gem of A Challenge Wk11 - Anything goes
The Outlawz Festive Friday's 14 - 27 June - Birthday

Gaming Dude

Good day

I really took time of this past few days to get a head of my unfinished projects on my table. This is Gaming Dude from SheepSki design and he has been on my table for ages now. I colured it with my Prisma pencils used paper from Just for Boys stack from DCWV. Sentiment is a stamp from Purple Magnolia. Since my boy is turning 16 soon and currently he spends enough time behind the XBox I thought this will go down well.

I took inspiration from:
The Male Room #112 - Computors or gaming
Tuesday Morning Sketch #506
Crafty Calender June - Masculine
SheepSki Design #27 - For someone special

Thank you and hope you have a fantastic day!
