I'm 'Flying High'

It's 'WORD WEEK' over at Just Us Girls
and once again I am Hosting.
As this is the beginning of a new month we have a
New Guest Designer. Welcome Kathy.
You can check out her talent at
Stamps at Play.
When I chose the Word (which by the way is TRAVEL)
 I had a specific type of card in mind.
After several attempts  I landed up going 
in a completely different direction.
I rummaged through some of my stamps and came across
one that was totally perfect. It made me think of just
what I will be doing in the coming month.
I am excited as we will be flying over the other side of
Australia to spend time with our daughter
and teenage grand children.
We haven't seen them for a few years.

On with the products I used here -
Card Base is GKD Pure Luxury
Background DP - SU Going Places
Stamped image - Inspired by Stamping
(heat embossed)
Sentiment inside - Stamp It Australia
Stars and tiny circles are punched.
Pretty simple considering the time I spent
on trying to make my other card work for me.

Hope you will pop over to Our Blog
to see how our Guest Kathy Schweinfurth
and the Team were inspired.
Hope you can join us there.

Thanks for dropping in -

There's GOLD here!

There is still a few day left to enter the current
CAS Card Challenge over at STAMPlorations Blogspot.
Details can be found Here
The optional colour twist is to use GOLD.
While I was fishing around in one of my drawers
(for what I can't remember) I came across my gilding flakes
and a penny dropped - this fluffy stuff would be
perfect and it had GOLD in it -
 make a cas card using this great product.
Well now I remember why I don't use it very often -
glue and flakes make for sticky coloured fingers!

I used an old Cuttlebug leaf die, cutting and
gilding  a few so you will see the others
on another card some time later.
I also had a bit of fun inking up the background
using a Memory Box stencil and various paints
and textures. I backed this with gold card stock.
My leaf was popped.
Sentiment is from Gina K Designs. 
Thanks for dropping in today.
Till next time Cherrio from
