Each and every petal



Good day

This is an image - called vintage rose - from A Day for Daisies and they are sponsoring Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2, so I just had to use it with papers from J'adore stack from DCWV. Circles are done with my spellbinder dies. Sentiment was taken from a quote book.

Challenges I used as inspiration:
Aud Sentiment #193 - Anything goes with sentiment
Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 #125
Penny's Paper- Crafty #355 - Anything goes
Tic Tac Toe #24 - Circle, Elegant, Greeting

Thank you and have a great day!

Good day

It is sometime quite a challenge when you do not experience the same weather as Blogland. Everybody is super excited about snow and winter, while we are enjoying summer and sun. Luckily we had some rain and cooler weather lately, so I had fun in my craft room. This is a digi from Digistamp4Joy and is November's progressive challenge on Facebook. I search for some decoupage images and with my search I came upon some forgotten stuff, like this card stock made from handmade paper. I played with bits and pieces from my stash. Used a Cuttlebug snow border emboss folder. and some peel off snowflakes for decorations. The sentiment was taken from a quote book.

Challenges I took my inspiration from:
Cute Card Thursday #504 - Birds/Animals
Lemon Shortbread #54 - Anything goes
Creative Moments #131 - Anything goes
Digistamp4Joy #142 - Anything goes/One for the guys
The Outlawz Wednesday Sketch 15 November 2017
The Paper Shelter #318 - Add some snowflakes

Thank you for your visit, hope you have a lovely day!

Feeling blue



Good day

Here we just had a big thunderstorm and rain is always welcome even when it comes with hail. Just before that I have finished this project. I played with all kinds of paper, from my stash, with some form of glitter or bling on it. Unfortunately you can't always see it on photos, but I tried my best to get a good angle. The digi is from Lacy Sunshine and is called Octavia Melancholy Moppet. She was almost the only one whom will fit in the colour scheme and theme.

Challenges I took my inspiration from:
Lacy Sunshine Facebook challenge - Winter/Christmas
Cute Card Thursday #503 - Sparkles
Cheerful Sketches - November
C.R.A.F.T #441 - Winter
The Sisterhood of Crafters - Let the Sparkles fly
The Outlawz Twisted Thursday - 3Brads, Flowers, pearls (I missed the 3 in front)

If I go braless....




Good day

It is my friend's birthday today. She is still young but I just felt like making her smile. I chose Stella Peeker Braless from Bugaboo with the tongue in cheek sentiment. I think the choice of pink was also because it is something different from all the autumn challenges going on currently.

Challenges I took my inspiration from:
Aud sentiment - #192 - Bingo plus sentiment - Die cuts, Digi, Pink
Tuesday Morning Sketches #428
Creative Craft Cottage #99 - Buttons and/or Bows
