It's Special!

Time for Just Us Girls Challenge and
Vicki is Hosting our Word Week.
Our Gallery is going to be full of beautiful cards - 
shame we can't smell them.
We welcome our May Guest Designer
Deborah Wheeler!

This card is special because it is for 
my granddaughter who's turning 30
and the flowers featured here are Tim Holtz Wildflowers
I purchased from her Christmas gift certificate
(and you haven't seen the last of them yet) ...
Chosen colours are blue tones - her favourite.
When this goes live we will be
celebrating two birthday's and 
a baby shower. Then Mother's Day Sunday
with one daughter travelling from North Queensland
for all the celebrations.
Added a texture plate die to the background
adding my floral arrangement.
The 30 is an old CB die adhered to a
cross stitched nesting arch with
matching cotton tucked behind it and a
punched heart to finish.

Can't wait to see the Gallery full of flowers.
Our Guest Deborah and the Team have gone all out
  floral so hope you will too and
add to Our Gallery. You could be our
Chic of the Week!

UPDATES! Sending this over to

Art is Therapy

Today's post is for the new Anything Goes Challenge at
and here is my project.

It's always fun using different mediums
to create whatever comes to mind or planned.
Often it changes as you progress.
I did manage to take a few photos along the way.
As you do with Mixed Medium there are lots of products
to play around with.

Sorry about the quality of this photo but I had
an overhead light on and wanted to show you
the lovely stamp I used.
You know the background is full of
wonderful bright Magical colours as it's a favourite of mine.
Using a stencil again from AALL&Create
I applied the smooth as silk butter.
Of course I got carried away after that and added
crackle paste through another stencil,
AA wax, more stamping and inky dots.
Butterfly is a Sizzix die
coloured with Magicals, a touch of wax and 
Sentiment also from AALL&Create
smooched and torn.
Adhered to black card base.

Here's a few more close ups

Head over and see what my Team Mates created this month. 
We would love to see you join us.
