Dancing in the sun





Good day

Another quick post before I prepare tonight's event. The is Eleanor & Pickles hula and it is from Lacy Sunshine. With all my northern hemisphere friends whom are enjoying summer and holidays this digi came to mind. At first I struggled with the backing paper and in the early mornings I remembered these papers from DCWV 's pebbled stack. The dies are from spellbinder and memory box.

Challenges I took my inspiration from:
Creative knockouts #201 - Summer fun
Crafting with Attitude #29 - Anything goes
The Outlawz Tuesday Colour challenge 4 July
Crafty Cardmakers #192 - Tic, tac toe, diagonal from left top to bottom right
Cheerful sketches - July sketch
Koala T Crafts - July - red/blue/stars

Thank you and a have a great day!

Carpe Diem




 Good day

Something a bit different than my usual stuff. Just love the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches and they are celebrating their birthday for the whole month of July. Unfortunately I'll not be able to play along in all 4 weeks, but I definitely going to try with those sketches that I'm available. I played with dies from IO Stamp, the hats and mustaches and the sentiment is from Nellie Snellen, also a die. The green pastel were more of coincidence than anything planned. I used different textures of cardstock and in the end I might have  put it closer together but that was a choice only after I have glued everything together.

Challenges I took my inspiration from:
Double D - Pastel Party
The Male Room #64 - Add Texture
Craft Rocket #39 - Anything goes
Tuesday Morning Sketches #410

Thank you and have fun in the sun!
Hugs from Africa!
