'Love' Always

It's Colour Week at Just Us Girls and hosting is Vicki
choosing these colours
They 'scream' Halloween to me but I chose a different path
as I am not a Halloween sort of person.
I think this flower from SU Bloom with Hope
makes for a lovely card. I remembered I had some
Twinkling H2 O's in my stash so I decided to
heat emboss the flower and go from there.
I fussy cut that out and then went on to 
create the background.
This was achieved using SU Timeless Textures
with TH Black Soot & Mowed Lawn.
The green leaves are from Marianne Designs
and a MS punch.
I finished my flower with some Diamond Dust
in the centre.
and cut my sentiment from STAMPlorations Pocket Blooms
with a MFT Stitched die.
Pop over to Our Blog to see what our
October Guest Karola
and the Team created using these fabulous colours.
You are never disappointed!
Hope to see you there.

A Stenciling I Did Go

I have had the stenciling on this card done for days now
and has just been sitting on my bench
 so today I thought I had better finish it off 
and add it to the CAS Mix Up October Challenge
which is to use more than one stencil on your cas card.
I used stamping, Distress inks, stenciling and
 water colour splotching with Brusho's.
I have a hoard of stencils so just started playing around
with several of them - not really taking much notice of
which stencils/colours I used as I wasn't sure at the time whether 
it would turn out or just be an overcrowded mess!
Most are ARTplorations and one gifted
to me by a friend (she had a spare)
The main image is ARTplorations Bloom Silhouettes.
My sentiment is from Gina K. 
Attached to brown card stock to finish.
Now that is done I am of to play some more.
Thanks for dropping in. I will be back later
with a scheduled post.

I Scream You Scream...

It's the middle of the month and that means
A Reminder for the October CUTplorations Challenge

I decided to go with Happy and chose
and CUTplorations Matching Die for my focal point.
You know the old saying - 
I scream - you scream - we all scream for ice cream
A perfect Birthday Card. 
There are lots of yummies here - 
I decided to add a bit of interest with so many
party stamps and cut my card stock on an angle.
My ice cream cone was heat embossed with
Zing Brown Sugar then of course I had to add
toppings - Nuvo Drops in 
Violet Galaxy/Wisteria Purple/Pumpkin & Blue Lagoon
and you have to have sprinkles!
I let that dry and continued on adding
some stenciling from ARTplorations Square Dance
with CTMH Thistle, Memento Lulu Lavender
TH Carved Pumpkin 
So you see - so many fabulous party stamps/stencils/dies.



Hope you enjoyed licking your lips and drooling over
that yummy ice cream. It's certainly ice cream weather here in Oz.
Thanks for dropping in and hope you will go check out what
my Team Mates created Here and come join us.
You still have plenty of  time.
Till next time Cherrio from
