Bobby is Hosting Just Us Girls Photo Week.

It's Bobby's turn to Host this week
and is also her First as Designer for Just Us Girls
choosing this refreshing photo below.
I looked at it so many times and my thoughts
went to a Mason Jar filled with pretty flowers.
The jar is from Dear Lizzy and I stamped it with
SU Baja Breeze then added another jar cut from
a patterned piece of vellum (which is a bit hard to see)
I had lightly inked inside the jar before topping with the vellum.
The flowers are SU Petite Petals. One I use so much -
Thanks to a lovely Crafty Friend's Birthday Gift
and a smaller one from my punches.
These were inked in Versacolor Cinnamon
and stems are Memento Pistachio.
You can never have enough Thank You cards
so went with one from SU.
Added some ribbon and a banner from
Dienamics a few pearls and some
coloured cotton.
Again this is popped with foam squares.
Now pop over and see more inspiration at Our Blog
Hope you will play along with us this week
and be chosen as our Chic of the Week
and may be our Guest for June.

Flying High!

We have something very different this time round at
and it is a something I have never done before.
As Hostess of this challenge Jenn has chosen
a 1 - 2 - 3 Challenge.
  1 - Image
 2 - Designer Papers
 3 - Embellishments.
Now it took me some time to work out just what
I wanted to  do with this combination.
I have been in a girly card making mood lately so
made up my mind to try something different.
Here is my Recipe -
1 - Image is my stamped Hot Air Balloon
2 - Designer Papers for the background and
the backing for my Image both from 
Prima - Cartographer
3 - Embellishments are Mesh Brads & Cotton.
A pretty simple card. I loved the DP so went to
a Hot Air Balloon stamp set
(unknown as it was given to me by a friend)
and the rest just fell into place.
Don't forget to pop over to Our Blog
and check out what the Design Team have created.
Hope you can join us and if so
Please remember not to enter your craft item
(doesn't have to be a card)
in any more than
 15 Challenges and that includes ours.
Thanks for dropping by

A Simple Happy Birthday!

Following on from last week I am again joining in on the
current challenge over at CAS Colours & Sketches
for their Sketch Challenge.
I had to think a bit before I decided on how I would
make my card and after a few failed attempts I
decided to go with one of my first
SU Stamp Sets - Vintage Vogue.
 It has been retired for some time
but I still LOVE  it.
I stamped the flowers with SU Melon Mambo
and fussy cut them.
My base is white card stock and I then popped
another piece on top stamping it randomly with
the flourish from SU Sweet Summer using
Memento Angel Pink.
I then added 2 pieces of pink mulberry paper
as backing for my flowers.
My Happy Birthday is Spellbinders Sentiments 3
Finished off by adding some Kaisercraft pearls
to the flowers and a few gemstones.
I was really pleased how my card turned out
and think the mulberry paper was just right.
Another cas card to add to  my collection.
Thanks Louise for a super simple sketch.
I am also entering this card over at
The requirements are only that it is
A Birthday Theme.
The Topping is optional and this time it is
