Sketch it in Autumn Colours

Good day

I'm Olga and hosting this month's sketch challenge. I'm a child of South Africa as can see in the picture above. I love nature and am an earthy kind of person though I am adaptable to any situation. I was a stay at home mom till the beginning of the year, when my two boys left home on their new adventures. Now I'm just a normal housewife again, busy with all kinds of decor stuff and ready to travel the world.

Now to this month's challenge. Kathie has designed two lovely sketches and we decided to make things a bit more fun, from time to time and add an optional twist. Since it is the start of autumn in the southern hemisphere I decided to add the twist of autumn colours. With the colour palette chosen you can do any paper project, but we would like to see at least 3 colours, though this is always just optional. 
The DT members did an amazing job and the ideas were unlimited.

  1. Thank you for the challenge. Lovely work by the design team.

  2. Two more great sketches! Hope to be able to come back and play with the other one soon! I didn't go with the color combo as it's not fall where I am and I 'need' to get a bunch of Christmas cards made this year.

  3. Ooooh, I love your sketches! So hard to choose, I might just have to do both! I just linked up my first card and hope to be back again with the other sketch. Your team's cards are gorgeous! Thanks for inspiring! Love the prize too - thank you!

  4. beautiful inspirations and sketches!

  5. Wonderful sketches this month, even though I was late in getting one used. :-D I'm saving that one into my archives because I can already see how versatile it is. Thanks.

  6. Hi, Anne! Just want to thank you again for the lovely Moonbeam Meadows stamp set for winning December's challenge. I've made a card using #224 and the stamp set to tell y'all thank you. Hope you like it! Stay warm, I hear UK is getting some cold, thanks again xoxo
