Birthday special




Good day

I had a special request for 2 birthday cards on Thursday, but I spend the most of Friday and the whole of Saturday next to the hockey field. Our under 13 team made it to the finals and shared gold by drawing the game 0-0, but with 8 seconds shootout they lost 2-1. But they surprised everybody and a I think themselves too, to go all the way. Yesterday I had time to put my papers together and I made time to colour my image - Fancy from Saturated Canary - today. The designer paper is from Scruffy Little Cat, Crafter's Companion.

Patched life




Good day

I have to admit I have struggled with this year's August. I have torn my ligament and just as I thought I can look life in the face again without my cask, I got a terrible flu. I was in preparation for a Warrior Race by end of September and I had to withdraw due to no more preparation. At least I got my curtains done and I am preparing for our annual Christmas fare at the end of October.

This is the image from Liesie for our Digistamp4Joy Facebook progressive challenge for August. I manage somehow to finish it in time. My designer paper is fro First Edition's Hide Away. I received a whole sack of odds and ends lace from one of my Bible study ladies and I could use this beautiful piece to finish the project with some roses.

Challenges I used as guidelines is:
Digistamp4Joy #127 - Anything goes with optional twist of adding roses
Sunny Day Crafting #12 - Anything goes (They are the new 'kid' on the blog, pop over and join them)
The Outlawz Colour challenge CC0830 - Inspirational photo wiht twist of adding lace
The Outlawz Wednesday challenge SC082416

Thank you and have a lovely day!
