There's 'No Card' Today

 The heading says it all!
However there is something else.
I am hosting our Wild Card Week
over at Just Us Girls 
and looking for Anything But a Card
With five Saturday's in the month we have our
Wild Card where the Host has free range to choose!
There are so many ways you can use your creativity
as you can see below. 

I thought I would share a little 4x4 Mixed Media Canvas
in a fairly simple way. 
The canvas has gesso added which makes everything
you add after that 'stick'.
I textured/coloured up my canvas and 
some paddle pop stick for the fence
 then started adding bits and bobs.
These include bits of bark from the yard,
dried flowers and seeds from a bouquet I was given,
The centre of the blue flower (from my stash)
is actually the centre from the seeds.
Added some cheese cloth, 
a few leaf dies and  art stones.
So you see Mixed Media can be
fairly easy by adding things you may have
around the house. It's fun just to experiment.
My kind of relaxation while others
love to dabble in colouring images.
Pop over and see how everyone
chose to play this week.
We also say good bye to our lovely Guest Chrissie
who inspired us greatly with her talents. 
Thank You for joining us this month.

Thanks for dropping in today

tis the Season - Christmas that is!

 We are back after after having a wee break at
Our Challenges are always Anything Goes Christmas.

I so love Tim's Mini Holiday Green's Dies
and I have cut a few of them after inking up
my watercolour paper with a few Lindy's Magical
Sprays and Powders.
I also cut three different sized paper pieces
as a backing.
Found some cotton and attached that
adding coloured beads.
Flicked some splatters, added my sentiment,
corner rounded
and added to my card base.
The paper is Metallic Galaxy
which has a lovely silver shimmer.
That's another Christmas Card to add
to my growing stash.
So good to not be panicked late in the year
with NO Christmas cards ready to send.
How about you - Have you started yet?
Christmas in July is a great starting point.
Pop over and see what the Team have chosen
to share and add yours to our Gallery.
Thanks for dropping in.
