Playing with Dies

Good day

My boy is leaving for a religious retreat and I wanted to send some love. I made this miniature (7x10cm) I played with Creative Impressions Craft Dies by Sue Wilson. I used Kraft stock as back ground since they are going to a place in the dessert. I used odds and ends in which the dies fitted.

Cute Card Thursday #600 - Dies & Punches
Crafty Sentiments - Fall colours
Creative Knockouts #316 - Anything goes
The Outlawz Festive Fridays 20 Sept - 3 Oct - Anything goes
Double D - Focus on sentiment

Thank you
Hugs from Africa!

Good Morning

We had our first Spring rain, though a few drops, but it had just washed all the dust from the leaves and the air is cleaner. My boy is busy with a Sevens rugby series, from there my late post.
It is time for a new challenge at Creative Moments. I received this cute birdie from one of our sponsors - Besties - to play with. Though our challenge is an Anything Goes we love to see some seasonal colours too. I have coloured the image with my Prisma pencils. Designer paper is from BoBunny's Dreams of Autumn collection. I used a Martha Stewart border punch with the leaves in 2 different card stock. The leaves are donr with Impression Obsession dies as with the sentiment I used a Spellbinder leave die and a Marianne Design Swirl.

Challenges I'm joining:
Allsorts Wk 536 - Autumn
Tuesday Morning Sketches #519
Aud Setiment #235 - Autumn & sentiment
Crafty Calender - September - A lot of Layers

Hope to see you at Creative Moments
