 Good day

It is time for a new challenge at Creative Moments. This time we are sponsored by Ike's art. We always have an Anything goes with a option of a twist. This time it is for a special lady, since it is mother's day soon. I played with this lovely image  called Daisy Cat from Ike's Art. I used some forgotten papers in my stash with some different textures. I also added some flower sequinces and liquid pearls. Coloured the image with my prisma pencils.

Digi Doodles #47 - Perfect pets/animals
Allsorts - #667 - Spring is in the Air
Stick it down - March sketch

Anyone can get old......

Good day

This is a quick share for a special requested 60th birthday card. I just love this image from Dr Digi called Flossie's day out. I used papers from Mintay papers' Country Fair. I used some distress technique throughout the card to blend in the background. A cuttlebug emboss border on the left with some eyelets in right top with a lovely sentiment. 

Challenges I took inspiration from:
Creative Knockouts #443 - Birthday wishes
Cheerful Sketches - March sketch
The Outlawz Tuesday Colour challenge 8 -21 March - Brown & 2 greens with circles

Thank you and have a blessed day!

Time for new sketches at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2

This is just a love sunset photo from Botswana when we were there in 2015

Sketch #224

Good day

I'm the host for this month's sketches at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 and as DT we decided to add a twist from time to time to add some spice to the sketches, though it is an optional. I decided to use some autumn colours, since it is the start of autumn in the southern hemisphere. 

For my first card I made a personilised baby card for a friend who expects her 5th grandchild in April and it will be her first grandson. I thought this image was from Di's digis, but cannot find it in her store for reference. So now it is an unknown artist. I used papers from W&M. Coloured the image with Prisma pencils. 

Challenges I'm joining: 
The Outlawz Saturday Paper a la Mode - Looking forward to.....
The Paper Shelter #501 - For the boys
Unicorn Challenge #74  - Dot and/or stripes
Allsorts #665 - Hand coloured image
Morgan's Art World - #3 - Anything goes

Sketch #225

Image from Twistoon Balloon for you

Inspirational autumn colours

For the second sketch I used an image from Lisa Twistoon - Balloon for you and this is also a reminder for Creative Moments's Love it or Hate it challenge. Twistoon is one of the sponsors at Creative Moments. This image gave me the feeling as if she regrets something, so I made it a belated card. I used some dies in my stash for the leaves and ivy. Again was the image coloured with Prisma Pencils. This time I used paper from Mintay papers fall festival.

Challenges I'm joining:
Colour Crazy Craft #8 - Anything goes
Sweet Stampin - Girly with no pink
Penny's Paper - Crafty - Anything goes

Hope you will come and join us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 and that you will challenge yourself to use the colours. 

Hugs from Africa!
