Photo Week at Just Us Girls

 It's our Photo Week at Just Us Girls
and here is the photo our Host Vicki has chosen 
I wasn't sure which direction this photo would take me
so I started with my Lindy's Magical's as I do
and loaded up my watercolour paper to replicate the colours.

It sat on my desk for an age before I decided to go for a
Christmas card showing of the heat eembossed
STAMPlorations sentiment, framed and
backing it again with Magical's
and adhered to card base.
The paper I used has a metallic greeny tinge
which blended nicely with the green in the background
which doesn't show up in the photo.
Pop over and see how our Guest Fran 
and the Team chose to showcase 
this fabulous photo and add yours to our Gallery.
You could be chosen as our Chic of the Week 
and in the running to be Guest Designer for August.

Anything Goes at The Sisterhood

Anything Goes for our New Challenge at 
Always a popular one but with so many choices
it took me quite some time to decide
just what I would make.

and a close up - 

I went with a CAS card using a few die cuts
a friend sent me after I had seen so many
lovely simple ones in blogland.
How lucky I was as she had bought that set
from Simply Graphic which is a French site
and got a relative to post it to her. 
Again I have made this card 
casing another one from Cecile Ribon Here
You will have seen two others I cased recently Here
I inked up the two dies with Lindys Magicals
much heavier in colour than the soft background.
Added a simple third die in white.
Splatters in grey and gold blending in with
the washi tape.
Simple sentiment is in grey from SU.
Popped on to white card stock and card is done.
Pop over and see what my Sistahs created
and I am sure you will want to add your AG creation
to our Gallery. Hope so.

It's 'Merry' for The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge

It's time again for our New Anything Goes Challenge at
I am really enjoying getting a head start on my Christmas Cards
with Anything Goes - it makes it easy as and just go with
whatever takes your fancy.

The background on this card has been cut in half
and the other piece you will see pretty soon!
It is also a Christmas Card Shh!
Lots of different Lindy's Magical's colours
which look super IRL.
I seem to be in a blueish colour mood as my last card
for our challenge was blue too.
Next tme I will make sure it is different.
I die cut my background and added
silver glitter paper to the back.
This was then framed in red.
The silver snowflakes are from Spellbinders
heated with Wow Midas Touch Embossing Glitter.
Merry die is from Memory Box cut with the same
metallic paper as the card base.
Finished with red pearls.
Pop over Here to see what  my Team Mates created
and join in the fun and get those Christmas cards in the ready.
You are never too early to start and after all we are nearly
half way there.
