 Today's post is for the New Challenge at 
This is a short one this month as we are
in the process of selling our small farm and
moving to a retirement village.
With so much to do my craft time is very limited.

I did get a bit of time to create this small piece
giving me the chance to unwind from decluttering etc.
Had brother in law help over Easter and has
done a good job of helping take some 
farm supplies back to his place.

I did take a few photos and made a list of products used.
I cased this card Here and you can click on her blog
showing how she made it.

I used gesso, texture paste, Lindy's Magical's,
torn paper, washi tape, chipboard, art stones,
gold mica powder, butterfly die from stash, 
cabachon and sentiment. 
Attached to purple base.
Head over and check out what my Team Mates created
and hope you can add your mixed media piece to our Gallery.

This will be my last piece for now as I pack up
my craft room for the big move north.

former Jugs Designer Cecile Ribon
which was perfect using the above colours.
Added a Spellbinder square die, floral die,
 purple ribbon, thread and gem.
Finished with a simple sentiment.
Popped in front of DP (the same as the floral die)
Check out what Colleen and the Team created

Happy Birthday & Challenge #300 for Cut It Up.

It's our BIRTHDAY and
Our #300th Challenge at 
How cool is that!

I seem to be in a Daisy Mood lately
as I did for my last CIU card but this time - 
 using different dies and colours.
I stencilled the background and added a
 combination of Lindy's Magicals and Nuvo Shimmer,
die cutting and inking my daisy and leaves.
Added some scripting to the background,
a tiny frame and finished with a
Happy Birthday Sentiment.
Attached to white card base.
Head over and see what wonderful
Birthday cards the Team created.
Hope to see yours in our Gallery.
