Happy Mother's Day

Maria is Hosting our Word Week at Just Us Girls
and has chosen one that 
I am sure is close to all our Hearts.
Mother's Day is a very Special Day for me as I get to
spend it with one of my Daughters. It is a yearly
get together as we fly north to the Sunny Tropics to
celebrate that Special Day and 
2 of my Grandchildren's Birthdays.
Here is my 'Mother Card'

I love the big flower from SU's Fifth Avenue Floral 
and that is my choice as a feature
 using Brusho's Rose Red. I heat embossed it
in white before colouring.
Card base is kraft. Added some torn green paper
behind the Inspired by Stamping DP.
Leaves are cut from a Kaisercraft die.
Added a few pearls and ribbon to finish.

I would like to Welcome our May Guest Designer Kathie Durgan. 

Check out Our Blog to see what 
Kathie and the Designers have created
and come join us this week. 
You could be our next Chic of the Week.
Thanks for dropping in

A REALLY cas brightly coloured card.

Once again I am drawn to the gorgeous colours for
Game #89 at AAA Cards
Don't you just love them!
Well I do as this is my second card.
My first card is Here
Now this one is reeeeeeeeeeeeely clean & simple
only taking a short time to put together.
Off course I had some fabulous stamps to use
making my card simple and striking.
The stamps I used are
I inked my background stamp with
Tim Holtz Peacock Feathers/Squeezed Lemonade
Wilted Violet and Festive Berries.
My butterflies and sentiment were heat embossed in black.
Added some scoring for interest and mounted
my card on black card stock. 
Here is a close up of the embossing.

I am popping this card over to
Card Mania for their Life is Colourful Challenge
and the

STAMPlorations Anything Goes Challenge

I have a card class coming up to try the new
and exciting TH Oxide Inks - can't wait.

That's it for me for now - till next time

It IS Bright AND Beautiful

Once more I found myself playing with my new addiction.
Over at AAA Cards there is beautiful mood board
 which just screams Brusho's to me.
All the details for this challenge are Here.

I picked up on as many colours as I could and
just had to include feathers to my card.
I cut out a feather die from SU Four Feathers to use as a mask
and then added my Brusho's spritzing lightly
and waited for the magic to work.
I then decided to add more to my background 
with some dots from SU Timeless Textures.
My feather was then inked with TH Evergreen Bough
and then cut and placed where my mask was.
Inked the edges in TH Black Soot and Inka Gold
including inside and Blue Moonstone Sparkle Medium.
The Inka Gold was also randomly placed on the
background and the stitched edges.
The Hello die is from STAMPlorations
and again  inked with gold.
How often are we tempted to just add a little something?
In keeping with the CAS Challenge this couldn't happen.
Instead of popping different elements here I went
all flat and kept some white space. Hope I didn't overdo it!
Hope you enjoyed my take on the Bright & Beautiful Challenge.

Finished with sprinkled gems.
