Thinking of You.

Hello and Welcome to my Saturday Post.
Lisa is our Host this week at Just Us Girls
for our Photo Week. 

Here's a close up!

What caught your eye here?
I saw all the lovely bright colours.
My background and die cuts are from
Lindy's Screamin Banshee Black
as I knew the various colours would show up nicely.
I then die cut Tim's Mixed Media Thinlits
adding a little stenciling to include
 yellow there and with my ribbon.
Die cut sentiment is from Crafts4You.
Finished by attaching to white card base
with a snippet of coloured paper on the side -
  something I picked up from teamie Cecile. 

As it is the last week of July 
it is the last post from our Guest Claire
so pop over and see what caught her eye
then on to the Team's Creations.
Always amazing makes!

PS Thank you so much for sharing
your talents with us this month Claire.

The Circus Comes to Town for a Birthday Celebration

What a fun challenge Vicki chose this time round for us at
Certainly one for the kiddies!

As I had nothing Circus-y in my stash I 
went delving into blogland for something appropriate.
What is a Circus with a Clown?
I chose this fun pre coloured clown as he seemd to be saying
Happy Birthday so that is the path I took.
I inked up the number stencil
to go with the birthday theme
and adhered to a coloured back.
The Happy Birthday sentiment is from Pink & Maine
and cut from Spellbinder circle dies
tucked behind the numbered stencil.
Attached to bright coloured card stock.
There's some fabulous Circus Themed cards over at
Our Blog from my Talented Sistahs so
go check them out and add yours to our Gallery.
Thanks for stopping by.

A Merry Make for Christmas Craft Creations

It's Reminder time at Christmas Craft Creations
and as a bonus I have another card for your pleasure.
I saw a card I really liked over on Pinterest Here
and have cased it.

I inked my background using acetate with 
Tim's Oxide Inks in Abandonded Coral and 
Salvaged Patina onto watercolour paper.
Added the Lawn Fawn white heat embossed leaves
from STAMPlorations Feathery.
Die cut my vellum tag from CUTplorations Tags 1.
The Merry Die from Hero Arts Merry Stamp & Cut
was cut three times for dimension and 
heat embossed with Zing Metallic Silver
and adhered to the vellum tag.
Inked the Christmas word underneath.
Added STAMPlorations Shaker Blend sequins
and tied my tag with variegated cotton from my stash.
Finished with corner rounding and 
attaching to white card base.

Pop over and see how my Talented Team Mates
chose to show off their Non Traditional Coloured cards
and come join in our Gallery. 
Hope to see you there.
Thanks for dropping in.
Love reading your kind comments.

Another Merry Christmas card for The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge

 It's that time again for a New Challenge over at
and we have reached a Milestone #100 Challenges!

I had forgotten I had a lovely big snowflake die
from Cuttlebug and knew it would make a nice
CAS Christmas card. I die cut my topping
from some Christmas DP and again underneath
in blue to add a touch of colour.
This is when I rummaged through my embossing powders
as I knew I had one with a hint of blue and gold.
It's Wow Antlantic Seaspray -  perfect!
I die cut my snowflake twice and heat embossed
with the above powder. 
Just had to finish it off with a sentiment from
STAMPlorations inked and heat embossed clear,
 a big gem centred in the snowflake
and a few tiny heat embossed stars.
Pop over and see what my Team Mates
have in store for your pleasure.
Hope you are inspired to create
a Christmas card for our 100th Challenge.
Thanks for dropping in
