It's Photo Week at Just Us Girls

It's time for our Photo Week at Just Us Girls
and Hosting this week is Nancy
choosing this 'Beauty'
I decided to go with the hearts using
a cream metallic card stock with a shimmery pattern
and gold paper.
The Heart die is from Cheery Lynn called
'Celtic Heart' a birthday gift from my
Scottish Sister Cheri Weston.

I glued the outline and slightly popped the
middle and added the CUTplorations XOXO Word Die
The lace trim is from SU Delicate Details.
and heat embossed in gold.
Finished with some pearls.

I am sure you are going to love playing
with us this week. Pop over and see how our
May Guest - Kathie and The Team were inspired.
Hope to see you there.

Popping this over to the new Challenge at
Cardz 4 Galz for their Challenge #48 Inspired by a Song
This fits perfectly with my choice of song -
George Strait - I Cross My Heart from the movie
Pure Country. I LOVE his music and that movie
is one of my all time favourites.
I know if you have heard the song you now have it
embedded into your head and will sing it all day long.

Thanks for popping in

A Simple 'Happy Birthday'

There are a few challenges I would like to enter the above
CAS Birthday card into...
but first let me tell you how I made it...
I used white card stock as my base and for the embossing.
which is a Kaisercraft leaves folder. - cut with
CUTplorations Crazy Double Running Stitched Die
I framed that with gold paper.
The butterfly is cut from gold vellum and
white card stock. I spritzed the white with
SU Champaigne Mist from
CUTplorations Flutter Zen 2 Layered Die
Sentiment is from SU and cut with MFT Stitched Die.
The butterfly sentiment and embossed background
are all popped.
Added a pearl to the centre of the butterfly to finish.

These are the challenges -

Another CAS card for AAA Cards

I seem to be in a CAS mood lately and loving it!
Here is another one this time for the current challenge at

I got out my recently purchased Brusho's for this one
and just let the powders do their work.
You always get a fabulous colourful result.
This was done on water colour paper
cut with a stitched die
and attached to black card stock.
My image is from an old
SU Set -  Inspired by Nature heat embossed with
 Ranger Black Embossing Powder.
Added a bit more colour with Inka gold
Sentiment is from 49 and Market
cut with a JustRite die.

That's it for now.

Happy Birthday Wishes

Hello Crafty Friends
Over aColours & Sketches 
I found this gorgeous colour combination

and knew I just had to play. 
I have been away celebrating
Mother's Day & Birthdays with family and 
eager to get inky again.

I think Rich Razzleberry would have to be my favourite
SU colour so knew it would be fun 
to include my RR ribbon.
Here are the products I used -
Card Base is SU Sahara Sand
My floral image and Lace are inked with RR from
SU Avant Garden & Delicate Details.
The splotches are inked with
Tim Holtz Victorian Velvet &
Memento London Fog.
Sentiment is also from Avant Garden
inked in Victorian Velvet.
This was cut from a stitched die.
Finished with a few gems and a touch of WOS
on the flowers.
A nice CAS Birthday card to add to my stash.
Thanks so much for dropping by
I really appreciate your kind comments.
