For You.

Can you believe we are in to October already!
Well it's true and our new round of challenges at
Just Us Girls is upon us.
That means we have a New Guest Designer
A Big Welcome to Lynne from Rubydoobydoocrafts

 I am Hosting our Word Week with
SCRAPS! 



We all have an abundance of those leftover bits of paper - Right!
How hard is it to create a card using them?
Well for me this challenge was just that.
Even with boxes/drawers of bits, somehow I found it
hard to get what I was happy with. 
In the end after leaving it for a few days,
 contemplating whether to just thow it out and start again.
 I finally finished with something I am happy with.
I knew I wanted to use some leftovers (scraps) from
the retired SU Pumpkin Pie DP
then went looking for a colour to go with them.
Found one and started die cutting
The top strip is from Lawn Fawn Stitched Borders,
Butterfly is CUTplorations Flutter Zen #2
Sentiment - Impression Obsession
Leaf Swirl - Fancy That - inked with Lindy's Magical's.
Kaisercraft pearl.
That's my take on our Word Challenge.
Thanks for visiting.
Hope to see you in our Gallery.

Happy Everything!

 Don't you love it when a card comes together quickly?
This is exactly what happened for the Latest Challenge at
The chosen the Theme is
HAPPY EVERYTHING!
(Just has to have Happy in your sentiment)


I knew I wanted to ink up a stamp that
has those very words.
It's from STAMPlorations Happy Everything
as is the floral stamp - Darling Dog Roses.
I was going to heat emboss in gold on to
white card stock but
had the Paper Rose DP close by and
decided to see what it looked like
heat embossing in white.
Turned out nicely and finished with
adding a few little white hearts
and adhered to white card base. 
So there you have it - 
an easy peasy CAS Happy Everything card.
Head over and see how my Sistahs
chose to use the 'HAPPY'
Hope to see yours in our Gallery.

Shine Brightly!

It's Colour Week over at  Just Us Girls
and our Host Bobby chose such easy ones to create with.



I have seen a card similar to this on Pinterest
and wanted to re-create it .
I love using corrugated cardboard, tearing away
all the paper this time and inking the corrugations.
My orange flower is Black Eyed Susan from
Elizabeth Craft Designs using
Tim's Distress Inks, cut several times and layered.
Green and brown leaves from different dies.
Finished with twine bow and
sentiment from Tim's Quotations.
Added this to white card base.
Head over and see how our Guest Julie
and my Talented Team Mates
chose to showcase these colours
and come share yours in our Gallery.

Feeling Sentimental

 It's Saturday and Challenge Day at Just Us Girls
Choosing our Trend as Host is Carol M
Repetition! Repetition! Repetition!



For my card I got out the old retired 
Feeling Sentimental Set from SU.
It's a favourite of mine for repeat stamping.
The old stamp a ma jig comes in handy for this as 
this set is on wood.
First image is inked with Versafine Clair Fallen Leaves
and the second and third were inked and
stamped off before adding next to the first one.
Inked a strip under the bicycles to ground them.
Added a few strips of dp, sentiment
and that's it. Easy Peasy!
Pop over and see what our Guest Julie
and my Talented Team Mates created and
come join in and add yours to our Gallery.

HLS Stencil Challenge

It's Stencil Challenge Time over at



I love using more than one stencil at a time
and here I used one from Studio Light and
one from Little Birdie with Tim's Oxide Inks.
Added script stamping from AALL&Create  and splatters.
Butterfly is from Sizzix die cut twice,
placing the itty bitty insides into the black outlined die
and touched up with Nuvo Shimmer Pen.
Leaving a sentiment off at the moment,
adhering onto coloured card base.
Head over and see what the rest of the
Stencil Team created and come add yours
