It's Photo Week at Just Us Girls

 This weeks Challenge over at
Just Us Girls is Photo Week and
Hosting is Bobby
and here is the photo of a sweet outdoor scene
with birds singing around those pretty flowers.
I took my inspiration from the lovely blue birdhouse
then the pretty blue and yellow birds - hence
there is one sitting on the birdcage.
Added a background to highlight them
and the green flourish to add lots and lots of
pretty flowers using dies and punches.
Not to forget the pretty butterfly.
Of course I had to have a smooched
 blue background to start with.
Added my sentiment and some Liquid Pearls
to the centre of my flowers.
Adhered to navy card base and 
my pretty card is complete.
I had so much fun making this card
thanks to Bobby's beautiful photo. 
I am sure our gallery will be full of colour this week.
Head over and see what our Guest JoAnne
and the Team took from the photo.
Could be Spring in some parts but
Autumn is on it's way here. 
A big Thank You to JoAnne for
sharing her talents with us this month.

Sending this over to the
I chose the middle across
Butterfly (it's tiny) 
free and flowers (lots of them)

The Sentiment Says it All

Our New Challenge over at  The Sisterhood of Crafters
and Sistah Vicki is looking for THE SENTIMENT
to be the focal point of  our card. 

I got out a favourite stamp that makes for an easy card
to highlight the sentiment...
It's Hero Arts Leafy Vines
inked up with SU Calypso Coral.
Sentiment dies are a gift from a friend.
Inked the background die in the same colour as the vines
and the words layered up three times in white.
Gave it a light spray with Perfect Pearls.
Finished with a tiny butterfly and pearls.
head over and see what the Sistah's created
and we would love to have you
add yours to our Gallery.

Christmas Wishes

Time for another card for the

I inked my AALL&Create embossed background 
lightly with Tim's Frayed Burlap.
Die cut the bottom and again in green.
Holly branch is from Kaisercraft 
using the same green and coloured
the berries with Ruby Red Liquid Pearls.
I seem to get a better result with them
over the Nuvo Drops.
Stamped my sentiment, added some
red cotton, attaching it to red card base.
Head over and see what The Team created

Have you seen a Plaid Snowflake?

The current challenge over at
is coming to a close and I wanted to 
add to the Gallery for their

For my card I got out some very old 
Cuttlebug Christmas Embossing Folders.
Embossed and die cut the squares, corner rounded a few,
 framed them and popped.
The main big plaid (tartan) snowflake diecut 
 is also CB which included the embossed image.
 I used that, but can't see it after I clear heat embossed it twice.
The white snowflake was dry embossed.
Added layers as well as a scored strip to the background.
The old Swiss Dots just added something extra also.
Sentiment is from Tim's Great Outdoors.
Nice to get some old favourites out again and have fun!
Thanks for dropping in for a visit.
