Just for 'You'

 Hello and Welcome to Saturday's Post for  Just Us Girls
Hosting this week is Lisa choosing such pretty colours.

I made this card a little while ago after I received
my early Birthday envelope full of fabulous dies.
You all know me and how I love a smoochy background - 
Makes for an easy peasy card I used
Nuvo Shimmer Powders in all three colours.
The lovely big leaf die was one in my package'
I cut two but only needed half of the second one.
I then added another with vellum.
With such pretty colours a flower was called for.
Again using the three powders,
 it was die cut from MFT Heirloom Rose.
Sentiment is from Happy Little Stampers.
Some Distress Glitter was added to the centre of the flower
and a few scattered Nuvo drops.
Finished by adding to turquoise card base.
Pop over and see what our Guest Nora
and my talented Team Mates prepared for your pleasure
and come play with us this week 
by adding yours to our Gallery.

Love reading your thoughts.

Birthday Wishes for The Sisterhood of Crafters

 It's time for our New Challenge over at
Choosing the Theme is Sistah Diane
and a very popular one it will be too.

A few close ups

Most of you know my favourite colour is PURPLE
so no brainer why I used it here.
I die cut my popped frame from
inked up paper using
Lindy's Magnolia Magenta Gold,
a smidgen of Screamin Banshee Black,
 Cosmic Shimmer Frosted Shimmer
(a little too much there) and
mopping up the leftovers for my arrangement
and a touch of Nuvo Green Parade Shimmer Powder
for the background leaf.
Sentiment is from Pink & Maine.
 Die cut - My Favourite Things.
Adhered to white card base.

Look forward to seeing you there.

A Snowy Christmas Creation

Hello and Welcome to my latest card for
and this month's theme is quite different.

Now you don't see too many Christmas Cards in black
so had to put my thinking cap on.
That is until I decided the Black Ice Technique
would be perfect. 

For those that do not know of this technique
Check out the 'how to' from Melissa Kerman Here
The paper I used here wasn't the best but has turned out well.
The lovely large Conifer tree stamp is from STAMP-IT Australia.
Added lots of falling snow splatters
and a heat embossed greeting in white
on black paper and also around the edges.
Some matting in white and gold, adding some
gold cord and attached to black card stock.

It's the Most Wonderful Time!

 Christmas really is the Most Wonderful Time of the Year
and it is time for our New Challenge over at 

Once again I have gone with neutral colours.
I love kraft with a touch of red and white.
I cut out my tag adding some 
stamping and a strip of dp to the background.
Cut my Christmas tree with music dp
and inked the edges.
Added some Christmas ribbon, 
a die cut snowflake and some scrunched up binding.
Attached to  my background that has texture paste
snowflakes, sentiment and adhered to kraft card stock.
