Gentle Thoughts of You

Hello and Welcome to my Saturday Post for
Just Us Girls and Hosting our Word Week is Sue.

Going in a different direction to a get well card here
 I was thinking more like time will heal the pain for someone
going through a grieving process.
I chose a 'really old' SU stamp called Garden Collage. 
Heat embossed my image and coloured
adding some soft sponging.
Sentiment is from that set.
Added some variegated twine
and attached to brown card base.

We have a New Guest Designer for March.
 Vicky Hayes from Crafting Clare
Big Welcome Vicky. Lovely to have you
join us for this month.

Pop over and see how we all chose
to use 'Heal' and come join us.
Hope to see you in our Gallery.

A Trio of Tags

I have a trio of tags for this month's Challenge over at
I did start by just thinking I would made one
but decided that wasn't enough so had a play
and then there were three.

This is the first one I made and took pictures along the way.

Added gesso and crackle paint then my Tim Holtz Stencil
then sprayed with Lindy's Magical's 
and  tied Jute.
with more bits and bobs.
The circle in the middle is cut from cork.
Finished with my butterfly from STAMPlorations,
some pearls and sentiments from Tim's Small Talk Stickers.
Nothing special about this one.
Dragonfly image is from Visible Image
Text - AALL&Create.
Other stampings are Prima Marketing.
Finished with some cotton and distressing the edges.
This background was created with Lindy's Magical's,
 stenciling with Nuvo Mouse and adding a bit of grungy stamping.
My dragonfly is the same as the first tag 
and was sitting on my desk as I had not used it on 
what it was planned for. Came in nice and handy.
Same pearls as above. Sentiment is a digi download from
and Australian Company called Which Craft Do You Do.
Inked up my seam binding and tied  to finish.

That's my makes for this month.
Thanks for dropping in.
Pop over and see what my Talented Team Mates created

'Hello' I'm a Mixed Up Girl Again

Some exciting news for you today.
I have been invited to be a Designer again at
Thanks Leslie for the pleasure of being part of the Team.

Our challenges are always Anything Goes 
but we always offer an OPTIONAL technique twist 
just to inspire you! 
It's up to you whether or not you play the twist... 
just remember the twist is NOT mandatory to play.

Here is my card for this month's Challenge
which is Anything Goes + Smooching.

This is one of my favourite techniques
 so this challenge was super fun!
My smooched background is made with
Lindy's Sprays in Gecko Green
Blue Hawaiian Blue and Caribbean Blue
Flower is heat embossed with Hero Arts powder
and is STAMPlorations Blossom Sprays 3.
I partly coloured with Lindy's Witches Potion Purple.
Added some extra white with a uni ball pen.
Sentiment is from Altenew.
Added some White Opal Liquid Pearls for the stamens
and some white splatters.
Cut out with a stitched die and attached to white base.

Pop over and see what the other Talented Designers created.
Hope to see you in our Gallery this month.
Till next time - 

'Thanks' for STAMPlorations Stencil Challenge

It's time to showcase our makes over at STAMPlorations
after having a little break in February.
As you know my post is for the
STAMPlorations Stencil Challenge
which is always Anything Goes using a Stencil.

For my first of the month
I started my background using
Tim's Oxide Inks in Salty Ocean Faded Jeans
and Cracked Pistachio.
I then got out one of my favourite stencils
inking through it with VersaMark pad
and sprinkled generously with
 two different coloured glitters.
Unfortunately it did take away from the lovely stencil.
I then added the Out of Stock
adding glitter to the centre.
Adhered to white background onto
metallic card stock.


Hope to see your Stencil Project
in our Gallery this month.
*NOTE Don't forget to add the Challenge Graphic

A 'Thank You' with Flowers

It only seems like yesterday that it was Christmas 
and now we are 'March' ing on with our third challenge
of the year over at Happy Little Stampers.
The first day of the month means its our
Watercolour Challenge and you are going to 
want to play with us this month as our
Option is FLOWERS!
and who doesn't love playing with them?

My first go to was Tim's Wild Flowers.
I recently bought the stencil so that is where I started.
 Found this watercolour background piece in my bit box.
I know I would have used up some Lindy's Sprays here
also Nuvo Shimmer powders.
I stenciled with Cadence Champagne Relief Paste
thickly, let dry then added some plaster's tape
and die cut flowers. 
Sentiment is from Altenew and finished my card
with some Art Alchemy Waxes and attached to
cream card base.
Pop over and see what my Team Mates created
and join us in the Gallery.
Hope to see you there.
