DT card for the Alphabet Challenge: K for Kitchen

Hi everyone, hope you are all well and a wonderful week.
The weekend is nearly upon us once again. Hope you have a great one planned.
Well it's the Alphabet Challenge time once again, and sadly this will be my last one as a DT member. I have stepped down, as I was on too many teams, and I with my sister coming to visit soon, I needed to cut back a little. The Alphabet Challenge blog was my first stint as a DT and loved it.
Today the challenge is: K for Kitchen
This is one of my favourite images from Mo's Digital Pencil, at the time this was one of her freebies, not sure if it still is. I enjoy colouring her up and try out different colour combo's all the time. The background papers are from Kaisercraft, I added a paper doily, and I always colour with Pro Markers.

DT card for the Alphabet Challenge: J for Journey

Hi guys, hope you are all well and had a great week so for. The weekend is just around the corner.
It's Alphabet Challenge time once again and this week we are asking you to make a card or paper craft with J for Journey.
I used some old papers I had as the background, then i went on Google and found this map of Africa, one of the many places I have yet to travel to, and had a die cut from my stash also that had the compass on it.
All on a Kraft card base. This type of card lends itself for a guy card as well.
Hope you like it, looking forward to checking out your entries, and I am amazed how quick this card came together, most likely because I had  not colouring to do.

Some news

Hi everyone, hope you are all enjoying the weekend. Here in Australia we have a long weekend as we are still connected to the commonwealth, so celebrate the Queens Birthday this Monday. Man she still looks great for her age. Not sure if I could even do some of the stuff she does every day.
Anyway I am getting side tracked.
Just letting you know that I have stepped down from the Design Teams of the Papercrafting Journey, as they are now going through a transition at the moment I thought this was a good opportunity for me to leave as I have bitten off more than I should. I have also stepped down from the Poodles Parlour. 
I will be stepping down from the Alphabet Challenge after 'K'. 
I am still with The Squirrel and the Fox and SAS4Kids for now. I have my sister coming to visit from overseas and she has announced a 3 months stay, and as I have now finished my Nail Technician Certificate, and I  will be wanting to get out there and test run the whole shebang and see what happens, lol. My commitment to the Design Teams would have been stretched. 
I rather step down than not produce a card in time for the challenges.
I have enjoyed being with these wonderful challenge teams,and recommend them as great challenge blogs to participate in.
I am excited about this new chapter in my life and can't wait to see where the Lord is going to take me with it.
I will be posting pictures of my 'creations' once they become worthy of being photographed, lol.
Blessings Hilde
