It's Photo Week at Just Us Girls

 Carol Mc is Hosting this weeks challenge at
and chose such a cute and sweet photo
with so many ideas to run with.

I know there will be amazingly cute cards with bunnies abounding
so I went a different direction picking up on the pretty flowers.
Maybe I am the only one without that cute Bunny/Puppy!
I saw a card I liked on Pinterest that appealed to me
as I had stamps similar from SU.
Background stamp is Dark Room Door
and others - SU Because I Care and Nature's Walk.
Sponged the edges and coloured images
with Lindy's Magicals.
Sentiment is from Happy Little Stampers.
Added some cord and adhered to coloured card base.
Head over to see what the Team chose to showcase.
There's lots of lovelies there.
Now it's your turn to share yours in our Gallery.
Hope to see you there.
Thanks for visiting.

What's YOUR Favourite Pet?

 Sistah Debbie has chosen the Theme for our Challenge at
The Sisterhood of Crafters and wants to see
Our Favourite Pet.
My favourite would have to be a Blue Heeler
as we have always had them on the farm
but I went with my Favourite Dog instead.
You Guessed it! A Scottie Dog in all it's traditional glory.
I decided to go with a not too fancy fun fold card.
I used Designer Papers from Boofle,
a friend brought back from London many years ago
(and I use it sparingly)
My Scottie Dog is die cut from Marianne Designs
 adding black gesso for his hair.
I embossed the inside and have left it vacant
so I can add a sentiment at a later time.
There's some cute dog cards from the Sistah's over on Our Blog.
Pop over and check them out.
We'd love to see yours there.
Thanks for taking a peek at mine.

In the Pink!

 Just a really quick post today as I am trying to
 beat the clock and get my card in the Gallery
 for the New Kids on the Blog - 
Their first Challenge is

I have gone with the Retired Manhatten Flower 
Embossing Folder from SU
I added Lindy's Alpine Ice Rose and Oom Pah Pah Pink
and a hint of Nuvo Golden Sparkle
to the inside and sprayed with water
then layed my w/c paper down and
ran it through my machine.
I have already done this technique recently
and will see it in a few weeks.
I then fussy cut and attached in front of
two other folders from
Darice and again from SU.
Popped my Manhatten Flower
Added a sentiment  from STAMPlorations
and Petal Pink Liquid Pearls to complete.
Thanks for visiting
See you again real soon.

Another MerryChristmas Card

 It's time again for our New Challenge over at
and again I have gone CAS and ideal for posting purposes.

Unfortunately the background stamping 
didn't come through enough on the photo.
(and that often happens)
I stamped numerous snowflakes
on red card stock with VersaMark Ink
then die cut my Spellbinder snowflakes
and sentiment with Metallic Galaxy Glitter paper
which doesn't show up here
adding Cool Diamonds around the sentiment
for a bit of sparkle and pearls on the snowflakes.
Attached to white card base.
Head over and see what the Team created
and join in by adding yours to our Gallery.
