Just to say 'Thanks'

By the time this goes Live you will all know that I had been asked
by Loll & Bonnie from CAS Water Colour Blog to be their
 Guest Designer for November. I was happy to say Yes.
The flower I used for our 
 at Just Us Girls was gifted to me from them
 Thanks You So Much. 
These lovely colours were chosen by Angie
who is Host this week..
My flower was cut several times 
inking around the edges and layered.
The background has been stenciled with white texture paste 
(which is a little hard to see)
 lightly sponged with Tim's Antique Linen.
Behind the flowers is a leaf cut from a shimmery textured
gold paper and is from Fancy That - Leafy Swirl
My backing paper is turquoise textured card stock.
I inked the sentiment with Tim's Peacock Feathers and added
a touch of PearlEx powder. 
This was all put together onto brown card stock.
Pop on over to Our Blog to see what 
Our November Guest Trina Pham
and the Team created.
With such a lovely colour combination I 
hope you get time to play with us this week.
By the way! The Jugheads are taking December off so
those chosen as a Chic of the Week  in November
will be in the running for 2 Guest Spots when we
come back rested and raring to go again in January.

Thanks for dropping in today

A Holiday Reminder.

Hello There! My post today is a Reminder 
(just in case you have gotten sidetracked at such a busy time)
that you still have time
to enter the CAS Watercolour Holiday Challenge.

Check out Details are Here

I thought this time I would go Traditional in colour.
My card stock is a metallic green.
For my die cut decorations I wet water colour paper
and added Brusho's in Leaf Green Sea Green
Brilliant Red & Burnt Sienna.
picking the best part to highlight them.
I sponged Iridescent Medium for a shimmery look.
They were framed with
CUTplorations Curly LabelsTags Nesting Dies
in the same paper as my base.
Finished with a little Merry die unfortunately
I don't know where I got it from.
You have until the 24th of this month to play.
Pop over Here to see the Design Teams
Reminder cards.
Hope you get time to play.
Thanks for dropping in and a
Special Thanks You to Loll & Bonnie
for the pleasure of being their Guest.

Giving 'THANKS' Blog Hop & Linky Party

It doesn't matter where we live or whatever time of the year it is
We Give Thanks for waking up to a New Day.

On to the reason for my Posting!
We have a HUGE Linky Party happening over at
STAMPlorations and it is the 3rd one of it's kind.

8 Invited Guest so yes this is HUGE!
So much fun and so many ways to participate and join in to win BIG.
I won't go into the details here as this posting will be long.
Just pop over to our Blog (linked above) to find out.
I have made 3 cards with the
STAMPlorations Typografia Gratitude stamps.

I have kept my cards cas focusing on the sentiments
matting the first one and adding some scrap paper
after cutting from the
CUTplorations Crazy-Double-Running-Stitch-Rectangle-Nesting-Dies
This was also used on the card below.

For my second card I used the shaving cream technique
with Tim's Peacock Feathers Reinker
to back my framed sentiment which had a bit of grunge from
STAMPlorations Mixed-Media-Grunge
added for interest. Added a few pearls to finish.

And my last card I went for Kraft card stock
adding white texture paste to the
ARTplorations Rows-of-Hearts
I inked the sentiment with Tim's Oxide ink in Abandoned Coral
and splats in Vintage Photo. I sponged my binding to match.
This was attached to the CUTplorations Tags-1-Nesting-Dies
and the bottom with CUTplorations Curly-LabelsTags-Nesting Dies
