I Think You're....

It's Photo Week at Just Us Girls and our
Judge Judy is Hosting!


Now how much fun can you have with this!
I certainly did with my background.
I think I have used just about everything imaginable here
to try and replicate what's above.
Lots of Brusho's shimmer a bit of stenciling
credit card swiping -  which made my craft room
very messy but I loved it.
I decided to add lots of sentiments
from MFT Simply Fab Sayings
a swirly thingy to highlight the so
and the fabulous is  CUTplorations Fabulous Word Die.
Matted that with purple paper onto black card stock.

Pop over to Our Blog
to see more fabulously colourful creations
by our October Guest Karola
and the Team and come join us this week.
Hope to see you there.

It's my 'Favourite Flower'

Hello Crafty Ones
It's my turn to HOST this fortnight's challenge over at
Cardz 4 Galz and I have chosen
'Your Favourite Flower & Why'
Now those that know me will know what it is before
I've even added my photo.
Off course it is a 'Thistle' and being a Scot
I just love them. 
I have several 'thistle' stamps and was going to use one of them
but after looking through one of my die drawers I saw 
this British Thistle Die I had forgotten about.
Once more my Brusho's came out.
I used Purple/Sea Green & Leaf Green
but only the greens on the background.
My thistle was cut out after I had spritzed
the 3 brusho colours, carefully picking
out the best spot colour wise.
The background was cut with a stitched die
after I added some inked stamping from Kaisercraft
a few splatters from Tim Holtz and a cut out frame.
Added some WOS to the thistle a purple bow
 and a few butterflies above.
Sentiment is from STAMPlorations Bloom Happy.

That's it for me today.
Love to see what your favourite flower is
AND why! so pop over and see
the Team's favourites and come join us.

It's Snowing...somewhere

No Crafty Ones - it isn't snowing real snow where I live
but it is on my card for the latest challenge over at
The Mod Squad and what a timely one for me.
 Check out the Details Here
I was working on another card (which you will see at a later date0
when I had a leftover piece of water colour card stock. I had some
Blue Brusho's and White Pearl Acrylic Paint on my craft mat
so not to waste it I just smooched it and thought 
it would come in handy especially as 
Christmas is just down the road.
Little did I know I would snap it up quickly to make my card above.
As it was only a small piece I cut out 
part of my birch tree die to adhere to the front. 
I recently purchased some Delta Fantasy Snow
from Happy Little Stampers. It takes ages to dry
but has little balls of snow with bits of shimmer
and looks so realistic. I added it to the bottom
on the trees and even my wee bird which is from
a very old Gina K stamp set called Snow One Like You.
I cut him out separately as he was attached to a bird cage.
He has a tiny bit of Nuvo shimmer.
inked with Memento Summer Sky.
(wish I had inked it further up)
Finished with some glitter stars.

I found a few other Challenge Sites I though 
I would drop my card over to.
It's Anything Goes + Christmas

The Merry Christmas Challenge

Thanks so much for dropping in today.
Love reading your comments.

Your Smile.......

Don't we all love it when a card comes together nicely!
This card did just that and it is for the
I think the sentiment I chose from
makes for a perfect Pick Me Up.
Moving away from my addiction to Brusho's
I got our my other addiction - 
Tim's Oxide Inks and don't we all love them.
For my background I chose 
Peacock Feathers/Picked Raspberry 
and Fossilized Amber
blending separately and drying
each colour as I go.
The hardest part was finding some DP
to match one of the colours which I eventually did
and cut my panel from Tim's Mixed Media.
Adding my butterfly from
 and a gem to the centre.
My sentiment was cut from a Spellbinders circle die
inking the edge and popped to finish.

Be sure to pop over and see what the other
Designers created and come join us.
Hope to see you there.
