It's CASimply Happy Birthday.

Welcome to today's post.
 We made a couple of changes to our themes this year at
Just Us Girls  and this is one
 I am sure will be very popular. 
It's CAS - Clean and Simple.
Check our guidelines below.
The Host has the choice of what she is looking for
 and our Host Carol has chosen BIRTHDAY!

As the theme states - CAS.
Background is a simple die cut from Kaisercraft.
Die cut several florals in purple tones
Attached a piece of ribbon from my stash
and Happy Birthday Sentiment is from SU.
Pop over and see how our Guest Jules
and the Team went CAS.
Hope you like our New Challenge and
join in with your CAS card in the Gallery.
As it is the last challenge of the month
we bid farewell to our Talented Guest Jules.
Loved having you share your creations with us this month.
Thank you so much.

My CAS card fits in with Challenge #648 All Occasions
Till next time

Let it Snow!

The Theme for our current challenge over at 
just not here where I live. 
Gives me a chance to get a Christmas card made 'early'

Used a peek a boo die and smooched a
snowy background with Lindy's Magical's
and Irridescent Medium.
Die cut trees and punched stars.
Added a mound to ground the trees.
Lots of splatters and heat embossed sentiment
finished my card.  Adhered to white card base.
Head over and see what my Sistahs created.
Hope to see yours on our Gallery.
Thanks for visiting

Let it Snow!

 Don't you love it when you find a challenge by accident
and something already in your bits box fits?

That is exactly what happened when I went to 
comment on a fellow DT card. 
Leanne DT member of Krafty Chicks Challenge
blew me away with her beautiful purple Christmas Card
I just had to finish it off  and
 enter into their Gallery - then add to my 2023 Christmas cards.

Background is smooched with Lindy's Magical's
Trees stars and deer are Tim's Great Outdoors.
with a bit of heat embossed glitter.
Snow is roughed up texture paste and glitter.
Distressed the edges, matted on brown and
white card base.
Sentiment is from Happy Little Stampers.

so popping this over to their Gallery.
Thanks for taking time out to visit.

With Love!

Sue is Hosting this week at Just Us Girls 
and is looking for Hearts!

You can never send too much Love can you?

I hadn't intended my heart to be so "redish' but 
the Lindy's Bougainvillea Fuchsia
 has a mix of red/pink and purple.
I die cut an old Cuttlebug heart, flowers
and heart heads from the mix.
There is also a white cut out heart in the background
and scored behind that for extra interest.
Die cut a few extra heart stems in white
and a flourish from Fancy That.
Sentiment from STAMPlorations,
a few splatters and tiny pearls to finish.
Head over and see how our Guest Jules
and the Team used their 'Hearts'
 perfect for those that create cards for
Valentine's Day coming up -
so come join in with yours to our Gallery.
We would love to see you there.

Sending this over to the  Romantic Challenge #229
Going with Middle Row Down
Hearts - Free - Shades of Red

Thanks for visiting.

Be True to You!

It's our first challenge for the New Year at
we are starting off with
  Something New!
With so many new craft items either bought
or gifted the fun of choosing could be hard.

My Something New is 
The stamp I used here bought 
late last year after seeing a card
made by our Sistah Annie.
It's Timeless Tulips from Dark Room Door.
Background is inked up with
Tim's Ox inks, stenciling (new) and stamping from
Fussy cut the tulips inked, heat embossed
and slightly popped.
Framed and adhered to white card base.

Showing off the whole stamp here - 
first time inking with Versafine Clair Nocturne 
and heat embossed onto a background
from my bits box. 
Added some splatters and a simple sentiment.
Framed and onto black card base.
Head over and see what my sistahs created.
We would love to see your
'Something New' in our Gallery.
Thanks for dropping in

Christmas Snippets

It's our first Challenge for 2023 at Christmas Craft Creations 
and one I am sure we all have lots of after 
our Christmas card making for last year.

Here's mine!

All dp used here are leftover bits (snippets).
Die cut five trees, adhered to white cardstock,
framed in red and corner rounded as is the 
one background piece. Both adhered to
white and red card base.
Merry die/sentiment is from Her Arts
and finished with a red bird.

After our recent DT call out we have 
New Talented Designers joining the fun.
Head over to Our Blog and check out
how creative the Team were with their snippets
and don't forget to leave some kind 
welcoming comments for our Newbies.
Looking to see lots of lovely creations.
Will yours be there?
Thanks for popping in
