It's a Beautiful Day

Welcome to todays post for The Sisterhood of Crafters 
and our Latest Challenge. 
Sistah Debbie has chosen the theme - Wreath


I must admit it took me an age to come up with something
as I didn't want to have the common circle one.
I used Thinlits 664377 Geo Frame and added
lots of coloured leaves around the die cut frame.
I then finished it off with SU Botanical Blooms
die cut flowers coloured with Lindy's Magical's.
Sentiment is from STAMPlorations 
 cut from MFT circle die.
Added pearls to the flower centres to finish.
Attached to white card base.
Pop over and see what my Sistah's created
and we would love to see your Wreath cards
in our Gallery Here.
Thanks for droppin in and leaving a comment.







A Quick Reminder

 Just a quick reminder that the current challenge over at
Christmas Craft Creations is in full swing.
If  you haven't had a chance to play you do still have
just a bit longer.



I made a quick card again going with gold as my 
one colour besides the black and white.
Dye cut my tree and attached to black
framed card stock adding gold thread and sequins. 
Sentiment and snowflake are heat embossed.
Finished by adding to white card base.
Pop over and see how the Designers
chose to add their 'one' colour.
Hope to see you there.

Simply 'Merry Christmas'

It's time for our new Anything Goes Challenge over at


I went for CAS here using an unknown die cut
with gold paper adding my sentiment from Elizabeth Crafts
onto coloured card stock. Flicked some gold splatters.
Framed in gold and attached to
metallic card base. 
A great card suitable for multiple makes.
Sorry this photo doesn't look the best.
You know how hard it is with glossy gold paper.
The sentiment also looks blurred because of the shine.

Just for 'You'

 Hello and Welcome to Saturday's Post for  Just Us Girls
Hosting this week is Lisa choosing such pretty colours.




I made this card a little while ago after I received
my early Birthday envelope full of fabulous dies.
You all know me and how I love a smoochy background - 
Makes for an easy peasy card I used
Nuvo Shimmer Powders in all three colours.
The lovely big leaf die was one in my package'
I cut two but only needed half of the second one.
I then added another with vellum.
With such pretty colours a flower was called for.
Again using the three powders,
 it was die cut from MFT Heirloom Rose.
Sentiment is from Happy Little Stampers.
Some Distress Glitter was added to the centre of the flower
and a few scattered Nuvo drops.
Finished by adding to turquoise card base.
Pop over and see what our Guest Nora
and my talented Team Mates prepared for your pleasure
and come play with us this week 
by adding yours to our Gallery.
Thanks for dropping in and leaving a comment.
Love reading your thoughts.

Birthday Wishes for The Sisterhood of Crafters

 It's time for our New Challenge over at
Choosing the Theme is Sistah Diane
and a very popular one it will be too.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!


A few close ups


Most of you know my favourite colour is PURPLE
so no brainer why I used it here.
I die cut my popped frame from
inked up paper using
Lindy's Magnolia Magenta Gold,
a smidgen of Screamin Banshee Black,
 Cosmic Shimmer Frosted Shimmer
(a little too much there) and
mopping up the leftovers for my arrangement
and a touch of Nuvo Green Parade Shimmer Powder
for the background leaf.
Sentiment is from Pink & Maine.
 Die cut - My Favourite Things.
Adhered to white card base.
Pop over and see the beautiful
Birthday Cards the Sistah's created
and be sure to add yours to the Gallery.
Look forward to seeing you there.





A Snowy Christmas Creation

Hello and Welcome to my latest card for
and this month's theme is quite different.

Now you don't see too many Christmas Cards in black
so had to put my thinking cap on.
That is until I decided the Black Ice Technique
would be perfect. 


For those that do not know of this technique
Check out the 'how to' from Melissa Kerman Here
The paper I used here wasn't the best but has turned out well.
The lovely large Conifer tree stamp is from STAMP-IT Australia.
Added lots of falling snow splatters
and a heat embossed greeting in white
on black paper and also around the edges.
Some matting in white and gold, adding some
gold cord and attached to black card stock.

Pop over and see what my Talented Team Mates created
and we would love to see you add yours in Our Gallery
Thanks for coming by and leaving your kind comments.
Till next time -

It's the Most Wonderful Time!

 Christmas really is the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

stamping and a strip of dp to the background.
Cut my Christmas tree with music dp
and inked the edges.
Added some Christmas ribbon, 
a die cut snowflake and some scrunched up binding.
Attached to  my background that has texture paste
snowflakes, sentiment and adhered to kraft card stock.

It's Trend Week at Just Us Girls

Hello and Welcome to todays card for
Just Us Girls . It's Trend Week and 
Hosting is Sue choosing something I have
never attempted before - 


and it sure threw a curve ball at me.
It wasn't as easy as the Talented Jennifer McGuire
showed us Here
After umteen attempts this is what I finished with.


I had heat embossed my stencil but didn't turn out
as I wanted and nearly threw it away also then decided
to heat emboss again in green - ok that worked.
I then cut out my leaf and heat embossed that
with several colours adding some
Magical Powder and Wax.
I cut out a peek a boo die, popped on to
coloured card base.
Added coloured threads for interested
and a simple sentiment. 
Pop over and see how our Guest Nora
and the Team made their cards.
