Wishing you 'Brighter Days'

Hello Crafty Ones - so glad you popped in.
This week at Just Us Girls we have a new
Guest Designer - Darnell Knauss - Welcome!
and a new Challenge from our Host the Lovely Lisa

I wasn't sure which way to go with this one -
no weddings or babies on the horizon here so
I found a card I had made at a recent card class
so am cheating here. Thanks to Tania for the inspiration
for the card I am posting here. I have chosen the word Rain
even though there are no raindrops on my card
 - an umbrella instead.
Could I count the sequins as rain???

Thanks for dropping in.
Be sure to pop over Here and see what our 
August Guest Designer Darnell and the Team
have created for you then link up your card for a chance to be
Chic of the Week and be in the running
 to be our Guest in October.

'tis my Favourite Christmas Flower

When it comes to Christmas I always look for
a Poinsettia to use on my cards.
Whether it is a stamp or die
it screams Christmas to me. 

Our latest Christmas Challenge over at
Now I don't always use traditional colours
but I went close here using Rose Red Brusho's
for my Poinsettia flower which is from STAMPlorations
  heat embossing on water colour paper in white.
Added a little brusho powder touching it up
here and there to get the effect I liked.
I then heat embossed a script stamp in white
also to add a background. 
In the centre of my flower I have added a 
sprinkling of Diamond Dust which has given it a lovely finish.
(Very hard to see)
My Merry Christmas sentiment is from Paper Smooches
I used  metallic card stock as my base.

Our winner for this challenge will receive a $20 coupon 
to spend at the shop! Check out all the details HERE.
  I hope we have inspired you to
join us for this months Christmas Challenge.

Thanks for dropping in -

Live with Passion

Hello Crafty Ones - 
Time again for a new challenge over at Cardz4Galz 
and hosting is Helen choosing Pretty Pastels.

This is a quick post as we have long time friends visiting
from over the other side of Australia and my craft time is short.
You can understand!
 I started with grey card stock as my base topping it with 
stitched white card stock to stencil my 
Hero Arts Peacock Feathers Stencil. 
with Nuvo Burnished Bronze Mousse. 
The beautiful butterfly is from CUTplorations
and the top part is also coloured in the Nuvo Mousse.
My sentiment is from STAMPlorations and inked in
Memento London Fog.
I finished with a few gems.

Hope you can join us this fortnight!
Thanks for dropping in.
