DT creation for Crafting with Dragonflies # 27: PEGS


Hi everyone, it's Crafting with Dragonflies again, and this week we are challenging to 
use PEGS 
I have used these wooden pegs ( wooden ones work the best) and turned them into fridge magnets.
I painted them with gold glitter paint first, and then added some scroll die cuts from Kraft and added some of my new found treasures (the flowers). Which were liberally covered with glitzy glitter.(ahm)
Then glued a small strong magnet on the back of each one.
So there you have, easy peasy...and the funny thing is you can't just do one, no you have to do more, 3, 5 or more...hop on over to the main blog and check out what the Dragonfly girls came up with.
Blessings Hilde
The winner for this challenge will receive a surprise gift from me.......(mahhaahhawww)

DT Brown Sugar # 94: Father's Day


Hi all, hope you all had a good week so far. It's Brown Sugar time again, and this week the theme is 
Father's Day
The papers are all from my stash, I used a Digi gingham paper and digitally moved the digi car image and the sentiment onto the digi paper...I love experimenting.  The image is from Stitchy Bear Digi Images.
I then hand coloured some blue into the car with a Pro Marker,and used an EK grass border punch..
 Even though our theme is Fathersday, (my father passed away a long time ago, and I still miss him) I used a sentiment that could be used or anything really. Just a guy card.
Here in Australia Fathersday is not until 1st Sunday in September, but over your way somewhere is Fathersday, so hug your Fathers and tell them how much you love them, and if you have a problem with him, then forgive him....otherwise you will regret it one day....and it could be too late. I know that, no matter what the circumstances are, it is better for your health and peace of mind....

Blessings Hilde

Elegant Gatefold card with hat and flowers for challenges

Hi all, hope you are all well and have been enjoying the week. I bought this image from Craftsuprint, and hardly used it as it is meant to..but was rummaging around all my stuff and thought it would make the perfect card topper, doesn't always have to be hand coloured....now I know some would shake their head at that thought, and some of you would agree, lol...
I had these papers and used the kraft card for the base, and added a bit of interest on the left flap , using the MS butterfly border punch. The flowers and everything else is from my stash, and I added lots of glitz, even though you can't really see it....the flowers on the left are meant to hold the card flap.
I think I will leave it sentiment free so it can be used for anything..
including Mothers Day...

Love all of their Digi images and Digi Papers..
