Hi everyone

It's cold, windy and was storming yesterday...winter has finally set in here in CapeTown.

I was asked to make a farewell card for a work colleague leaving the office for better prospects... The request was for a funky card...well...I am not sure if this is funky, but here is my

Close up on the flowers, I printed both sentiments from my craft artist programme digitally. The image is from Penny Black.

Coloured with Faber Castell water color pencil crayons

And my completed card........added some rhinestones to the centre of some of the circles on background paper.

Thanks for stopping by.....

Keep warm and remember to.........

some stickles black diamond glitter for the soil.

Mojo Monday 346

Hi everyone!

I needed a thank you card for my neighbor who had been very accommodating during a renovation we recently had. This card is long overdue so I decided to use this weeks Mojo Monday's sketch for her card.

These are all bits of paper leftovers from previous projects and admittedly it came together quite quickly.....thank Krafty Fairy is shining her light on me...

Here is this weeks sketch

And this is my contribution

I used brads on the banners and flower eyelets on the left top corner

Circles were cut with my Big Shot and Spellbinders Dies and the sentiment is an oldie but goodie from Hero Arts.

And finally my completed card.

Have a Krafting good weekend .....Remember to..........Keep it Krafty.

Make your own background paper

Hello stampers and scrappers

Last week I made a card to participate in The Outlawz CAS challenge, card was made, but I didn't have time to load it .... 

Thea idea was to create your own background paper...this is what I came up with:

I used water color pencil crayons to colour the butterflies as well as the soft blue background.

This side view shows the single butterfly I cut out and added as a 3D embellishment.

I sprayed the white card with perfect pearl spray ( a mistake I thought after the fact) but it was done 
:-( - live and learn lol.

The quote i found on line and printed it out with my color printer.

That's it for the moment....hope you all have a great weekend coming...and that you'll have some time to......

                         Keep it Krafty.....

Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 - 13

Hello fellow stampers

Today I came across my friend Lynn's post about her submission to the Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 challenge and was inspired to try my hand at it.

This is the sketch found here

And here is my take on it
I coloured my butterfly with Faber Castell aquarelle watercolor pencils.

I embossed the side panel with one of my sizzix embossing folders to match the background paper. The paper was a freebie I downloaded and unfortunately cannot remember where it's from.

Here is my completed card . Hope it meets all the requirements.

Have a stampendous day!

And remember to.......

                    Keep it Krafty..........


Shamela :-)
