Hope you are geared up

Good day

I've been a bit under the weather the past few days. The normal interseasonal congestion, that took me a bit down. Though I'm used to be home, it is a bit of an adjustment to have all my men with me. Currently it just feel like one long weekend. Hope the good mood will last till the end.
I've played a bit with one of my new dies that I have bought recently. Paper is from my stash and sentiment was computer generated. Dies are from Nellie's choice Shape dies Lene Design - Cogwheels

Challenges I took inspiration from:
Colour my heart dare #386 - Diagonal Left bottom to right top
2 Sisters on the Blog #37 - Dots and or stripes (My stripes is not that prominent)
Allsorts #565 - Men or boys
My time to craft #428 - Off the edge

Hope you are all well and stay safe.
Hugs from Africa!

Good day
Today I want to bring you some inspiration from Catch the Bug's Oldie but Goodie Thursday. This is Fancy Umbrella 4. With the change of season, umbrellas are always welcome. I played with lavender monochromes. The designer paper is from Graphic 45 secret garden. Dies are from Spellbinder and sentiment from Crealies. Image was coloured with Prisma pencils and finished of with a glitter gel pen.

Good day

My neighbour's daughter is turning 18 tomorrow. I had a reason to play with this lovely digi from Andrea at All Dressed Up called Summer time, that have been ages on my desk. I played with twilight colours with designer paper from Prima marketing's Golden Coast. Image was coloured with Prisma pencils and for a extra challenge I tried to colour the background with an ocean background. I also used some heat embossing on the sand. I also used a ocean border for the inside from the web. One of the challenges is to create your own holiday and in these days of pandemic I thought of "JUST BE KIND TO YOURSELF" holiday.

Challenges I took inspiration from:
All Dressed Up March #103 - Anything goes with All Dressed Up image
Shopping our Stash #416 - Happy Birthday
The Outlawz Twisted Thursday 12 -25 March - Create your own holiday 
Tuesday Morning Sketches #546
Cute Card Thursday #626 - Just for fun
All Dressed Up Facebook - March - Favourite colours

Thank you for your visit. Hope you are kind to yourself today!

Best wishes blown you way

Good day

In the middle of the month there are a few very interesting challenges that start. One of them is Creations in Pink. We just love all those mainly pink creations. We are sponsored by Polkadoodles this round and I have used this lovely Windy day Winnie. Designer paper is from Garden Party by Dovecrafts. I used my new Nellie Snellen die and Marianne design emboss folder that I have bought last weekend. Sentiment is computer generated. Image was coloured with prisma pencils, final touch of a flower from my stash. I opted for a Spring card with this image where the wind are blowing in a new season. We do celebrate Easter and in my religion it is the biggest event,but we do not send cards to celebrate it and that is the reason for my choice of Spring, though Autumn has started to show his colours outside my window.

Challenges I took inspiration from:
Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 - March sketches
The Outlawz Tuesday Colour challenge 10 - 23 March with option of spring or Easter
As you like it challenge: Favourite Easter or Spring and why
C.R.A.F.T #548 - Weather
Creative Knockouts #341- Border time
Digi Choosday Wk10 - Anything goes

Hope you'll bring your Pink Creations for us to see at Creations in Pink.
Hugs from Africa!

To my best gnome


Good day

I had the wonderful opportunity to play with Giant Daisies from Sheepski, one of our lovely sponsors at Creative Moments this round.

This time time though I played with pinks and greens. My designer paper are from Prima marketing's Fruit Paradise. I used a corner punch and dies from Marianne design and Sizzix. Sentiment is computer generated. Ribbon and buttons are from my stash.

Challenges I took inspiration from:
Cheerful Sketches - March

Sheepski Facebook challenge #45 - Ribbon/bow
Stamping Sensation - March - Spring florals
Craft Rocket #68 - Flowers
The Sisterhood of Crafters - Patterned paper
