I had time for some final plays before our I take a few weeks off. This image is from Alicia Bel and was a freebie at Digimojo on Facebook. I just had to play with is, so I made a gift bag. I played with some traditional colours for a change. I have coloured the image with my pencils. The sentiment is from Desert Diva.

A new challenge started at Creative Moments! This time around we are sponsored by Morgan's Artwork. I had the opportunity to play with Fantasy Fae 18. I used it to make a Birthday Card for my friend who will celebrate her birthday just before the end of the year. She loves hues of blue. I used some washi tape on my blue stripes. Image was coloured with Prisma pencils. I used a cuttlebug flower die and spellbinder leaves, almost forgotten. The flower is more or less the same one as in her hair.

Today I just played a bit. Since I have been in the mood of making gift bags, I just continued. I think a personalised gift bag is so special. I started of with the idea of white and iceblue.When we used to have Christmas at our house, I would choose a colour for my table and then I would do even my cards in that colour. So I popped in our local stationary shop and found this mint green and silver paper from Krafty King and I changed my mind immediately. I stayed with my favourite white in different tones. The image from The Paper Shelter is Heavenly Christmas Carol. Though the snow is not quite our Christmas scene her in the Southern Hemisphere. I have coloured it with my Prisma Pencils. I added some glitter and Pearl Accent. Snowflake confetti and rhinestones were my final touch. Dies are from Creative Expressions.

First of all I want to wish everybody that celebrate Thanksgiving, Happy Thanksgiving. Hope these are special times shard with family!
It is Thursday and time to share another oldie image from Jodie from Bugaboo. I was asked to make another gift bag for a baby shower and I have to use the same image - Bobblehead Animal Greetings - as before. It makes it so much easier if you have a head start. I used some beautiful soft mint green paper from my stash. I added some pink and blue that is featured in the flowers. I made a string for the fairy charm with some beads and attached it to the ribbon bow. On the front I used Night Sky ink from Versamagic and blended it a bit into the paper. I just could not make up my mind whether I liked it or not, so I did not do it on the back side too. Image was coloured with Prisma pencils.

Rhinestones and ribbon are also from my stash.

Finally I have finished this wedding card. Luckily it will go to the same bride and groom, their wedding has been postponed from June to November due to COVID. Their wedding colours is blue, white and silver and it just worked well with a few challenges I'm joining today. The image is from Sheepski Design and I have coloured it with Prisma Pencils and added some glitter on the mushroom. I used White glitter cardstock for the Heart die from MArianne Design. Though with the current light it just don't show. Silver cardstock was used for the heart embossing and the sentiment heart. Final touch was some rhinestone hearts in silver and some peel-off border.

Used the same pink . Coloured the image with Prisma pencil and used some rhinestones as finishing touches. Sentiment was computer generated. Hope you'll join us at Stella Says Sketch this fortnight.

Yesterday I took some time off to spend in my craft room. I made a DT project for next week and while browsing through the possible challenges, a few caught my eye. I played with some dies and embossing folders for this wedding card. The heart die was a birthday gift. I just love white for wedding cards but the blue just added a bit of a romantic touch.

Friday is a good day for many reasons. One of it, is that it is Freebie time at Catch the Bug. Since I'm not a big Halloween fan, I'm thankful for this lovely mouse with its balloons for this week. My training group is also a bit older than I am and they have asked for some baby cards. I decided to used some Ballerina, sage and linen for this one. Papers are from Lady K's twinkle toes and First Editions' Hide Away. I used a emboss folder and added some rhinestones. Image was coloured with Prisma Pencils. Some sentiment and balloon confetti were used for the final touch.

We have a new owner at Creative Moments. Luckily the transition between Alex and Barbara went so smoothly we almost did not see the difference. I have to thank Alex for the time I have worked with her. I really enjoyed it! I wish her well with her health. Then I am looking forward to work with Barbara. I think the only big difference is the time zone.
Scribbles is one of our sponsors this round. I used some of there freebies called Summer Treats. Summer is on its way here in the southern hemisphere and that can only bring ice cream to the table. This time I opted for a slimline card. I used plaid paper from Hide Away by First Edition. Coloured the image with Prisma Pencils and used a ribbon and rhinestones from my stash. I added some sparkle to the ice cream and lollies.

After a few days out of town I'm back. This time with a recycled paper shopping bag for our lovely inspirational photo challenge at Catch the Bug. Unfortunately the image, Autumn Jar from Bugaboo, was printed with another bag in mind, but when I looked for it, my husband has already thrown it away. I used some handmade paper in the background. I used a fence die and an oval with some faux stitching on it. Image was coloured with my Prisma pencils. Had these yellow flowers now for ages, since it is just to big for a normal card, but on this bg it came in quite handy. A ribbon from my stash was the finishing touch.
Challenges I'm joining:

There is a little boy that will make his appearance in a couple of weeks time. His grandmother asked for a card to celebrate the beginning of his life. I decide to take a little verse from my Inspirational Station and this one really sums up a little boy's life. Since mine are on the stage of biking by and soon they will be out of my house. I used some die cuts from Cuttlebug. The "It's a Boy" sentiment is confetti that I got when my boys were born. On the navy I used a Cuttlebug emboss folder with some vehicles on, from there my inspiration for the bike and it is in the phrase as well, and the turquoise is from Lady Pattern Paper Twinkle toes selection. with a little leftover dotted ribbon in the middle.
