New Sketches at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2

Good day

This is a bit of belated post for this months sketches at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2. We have 2 lovely sketches from Kathie again and we are sponsored by Fred She Said.

For the first sketch I used Trio sunflowers frame with a Breathe in Possibility sentiment, since I decided it will be a get well card for a lady. I used papers from W&M and some dies from Crealies. The image was coloured with my Prisma Pencils.

Challenges I took inspiration from are:
Let's Craft and Create #173 - Anything goes with punch it
Stamping Sensations - July for a lady
Morgan's Art World #7 - Anything goes for July
The Outlawz Colour challenge 29 June - 12 July - Green, blue & yellow in a Get Well Card

For the second sketch I used The Old Truck and also coloured it with my Prisma Pencils, though the image is available in colour as well. I opted to play with black and whit with a dash of colour as from the inspirational photo. Sentiment was computer generated and I used Crealies dies with faux stitching on the edge. I prefer the dies since it is less time consuming than to take out the machine and do some real stitching or even do it by hand is a bit slobby for me.

Challenges I'm joining with this one is:
Use your Stuff #426 - Black, White and dash of colour
Crafty Calendar - July Anything goes
Gem of a Challenge 14 - Anything goes 
As you like it - Favourite way of adding stitching

Hope you will come and join us in using these lovely sketches from Kathie at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.
Hugs from Africa!

The Funny Farm for Creative Moments

 Good day

It is time for a new challenge at Creative Moments and we are sponsored by Beccy's place and I have the opportunity to play with Horse & sentiment from the Funny Farm set. I really enjoyed colouring this funny face with my Prisma Pencils and some chalk on background. The designer paper is from DCWV The Pet Stack. I have found this cute owl bead and piece of wood in my stash and it looked like it can fit in the farm theme. Final touch of die cuts and brads.

Challenges I'm joining:
Crafty Sentiment - New Challenge - Anything goes 
Crafty Creations - July Anything goes
Beccy's Place - June Challenge
Colour Crazy Craft Wk26 - Anything goes

Hope you come and join at Creative Moments Anything goes.

Make it snappy

Good day

On this wonderful first Saturday of July we have a new challenge at Catch the Bug. As from this month we will only have one challenge - Anything goes - per month as well as one sketch challenge. We are all waiting anxiously news from Jodie. Her computer crashed, that was last we heard if you follow the post on Facebook. 

I used Make it snappy Birthday Chickie in the utterly CAS project! I decided to make a real window in the front of card and just paste the image on the inside. The image was coloured with Prisma Pencils. Though we are in the middle of winter I believe any day is a good day for ice cream, though I kept the colours light for a more summer feeling.

I took inspiration from:
Perfectly CAS #16 - One Corner
Double D - Signs of Summer
Craft Rocket #83 - Summer 

Hope you will come and join us at Catch the Bug's Anything Goes.
Hugs from Africa!
