It's Blooming PURPLE!

It's Saturday and you know that means - 
New Challenge at Just Us Girls
I'm Hosting our Photo Challenge and 
loved this one below on Pinterest.
Why? It's purple -  my favourite colour,
and my birthday coming up.
But my card is for my BFF's Birthday
which is just a few days before mine.
Oh and it is Spring here so there will be
some beautiful flowers blooming soon.


A few things to mention about my card - 
the majority of the dies used here
are from my early birthday package -
 she knows me well - couldn't wait so got them early
and have used quite a few of them already just not all of them!
The pretty paper was from her a few years ago
and blends in perfectly - Bazzill card stock.
The three gems on the flowers were also in my package.
Of course you knew the flowers were coloured with
 Lindy's Magical's!
The background dp is from my stash, stenciled lightly.
It looked rather dull so added 
Tim's Distress Glaze for a bit of sheen.
The tub is from STAMPlorations Fluttery Stamp/Die set
I cut across the top to tuck in my flowers.
Added some Art Alchemy Waxes for added colour
and finished with crochet cotton bow.

There are such beautiful cards over on Our Blog
from the Talented Loll - our September Guest
and the Amazing Girls who - like me share their creativity
with you weekly. Check them out AND
hope you join in this weeks challenge with yours.
You could be my Chic of the Week!
As it is the last Saturday in September we bid farewell
to our Super Talented Guest Loll.
It's been such a pleasure to have her share her
works of art with us this month.

Thanks for dropping in and leaving your kind comments.

Love Planted a Rose

 Welcome to today's post for
Sistah Darlene has chosen Stencils as our Theme
and it is a favourite of mine.

I had so many ideas running through my head
but in the end went quite CAS.
My background is from my bits box
with the shaving cream technique.
I stenciled the ARTplorations Rose Duet with
texture paste and let dry. I then applied a
 pearl white acrylic paint mixed with iridescent medium
to give it that extra sheen, matching the
grey background.
Sentiment is from STAMPlorations About a Rose.
Attached to SU great card stock.
Pop over and see some fabulous stenciling 
from my Sistah's and I am sure you will 
want to play and add yours to our Gallery.
Hope to see you there.

CASE-ing Chrissie

 Hi there - popping in with a reminder for our
Sketch Challenge at Christmas Craft Creations

I was browsing Pinterest recently and came across a card our
Guest Designer Chrissie had made Here and realized
it's perfect for her sketch challenge so here is my 'cased' card.
Thanks Chrissie for the inspiration.

I was going to used the same colours as Chrissie
 but found a lovely piece in my bits box that was a left over
using Lindy's Magical's so carefully cut out the trees
and the stitched hills.
I added snowflakes to my background,
green cotton and sentiment
then popped onto white card base.
There you have my quick cased card.
Hope you have had time to play - if not
you still have time to add to our Gallery.
Love to see you there.
Thanks for dropping in
