Hugs & Happy Thoughts

It's our last Challenge for the Year at Just Us Girls
and Hosting is the Lovely Lisa for our
Colour Challenge with yet another
Gorgeous Combination. 

I thought it time I got out my
Tim Holtz Thinlits dies again as they are
fabulous and you can do so much with them.
Starting off my card with White Gold Metallic Paper.
I have fairly stained fingers after inking up
my background by spritzing Tim Holtz
Seedless Preserves & Stormy Sky dropping
a small amount of PearlX Aztec gold
 then smooching onto card stock.
I framed that then added the
cut Thinlits die, deciding not to pop it.
Corner rounded those and added my sentiment
from Altenew - Beautiful Day.
My butterfly is cut from a Kaisercraft Die
which I played around with ink wise. I had
already made 2 others but found they were too dark.
Used the same inks as above but then painted it
with Twinkling H2O's for a nice sheen.
Added gold pearls to complete my card.

Pop over and check out what our
December Guest Teresa and my
Amazingly Talented Team Mates have created Here.
Join us and you could be our
Chic of the Week going on to be our
Guest in February.
In case you don't get back again -
I would like to wish you  a
I am sure I will be blogging again
before the 'Big C Day' so
Cherrio for now
