Coffee to warm up for exercise

Good day

On this lovely Tuesday in the middle of February it is time for a new challenge at Creative Moments as always anything goes with the optional twist of love or hate. We have 2 lovely sponsors this month. I have used Margaret Coffee from Mirtillamente. I have coloured the image with my prisma pencils and chose my colours from there. The sentiment is computer generated in Afrikaans and it says that coffee is a good warm-up to exercise. It is actually the 2 thing I love - coffee and exercise. The lady looks so cozy in her sports wear. I played with an emboss folder from my stash for the center grey, some neon pink paper added some colour with the black and grey.

Challenges I'm joining:
The Sisterhood of Crafters - Feminine - add some flowers
Gem of a Challenge Wk 4 - Anything goes
Can you handle the pressure - Anything goes with embossing with twist of add some pink

Hope you will come and join us in our Love or Hate challenge at Creative Moments!
Hugs from Africa!

Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 - For my men

Good day

It is the first Wednesday of February and it is time for a new challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. As DT we decided to make it a bit more interesting and add a twist to our challenges. As it is February we would love you to use our sketches with a love theme. Well it would not look like mine is not a love theme, but I sure do want to send some love with it. 

For the first sketch I used a clipart, since I did not had an engineer in my image collection. My youngest will leave house this weekend to start his university studies to become a mechanical engineer. So this is just to wish him luck on this new chapter of his life. I used papers from my stash and dies from Nellie Snellen with some sentiment that I have found on the internet. 

Challenges I'm joining:
Creative Knockouts #437 - Die cuts/ punches
Crafty Catz #580 Anything goes
Allsort #661 - Anything goes
A Perfect time to craft - February Anything goes

For my second card I used a limited edition image from Sheepski design called Tango. I have coloured it with Prisma pencils and used paper from Moon Child paper block. The sentiment is computer generated and is a Valentine's card for my husband. 

Challenges I'm joining:
Sheepski design #59 - Add something red
The Outlawz Tuesday Colour challenge 25 January - 7 Febraury - Light blue, grey, red - Valentine's day

Hope you will come and join us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday2.
Hugs from Africa!

Consequences of love!

Good day

After a hectic January I hope my February will be a bit more calm. Also a new phase in our lives, since after 20 years hubby and I will be alone again. 
This is a little card I made for friends of ours. They are expecting their first one. This is just to wish them well in this time of preparation for the little boy on it's way. I used an image from Cute as Button called Baby Boy. I've coloured the image with my Prisma pencils. I used a Fiskar emboss plate for the feet and hands and added some liquid pearl. Dies are from Nellie Snellen. 

Challenges I took inspiration from:
A Perfect time to Craft - February - Anything goes
Moving a long with times #139 - Love, anniversary, wedding
Colour Crazy Craft Wk 4 - Anything goes
The Outlawz Tuesday Colour 25 Jan - 7 February -  Blue, white, black with twist of baby card
Cute as a Button #77 - Annything goes

Thank you and have a lovely day!

Hugs from Africa!
