Just Us Girls has Bobby hosting Word Week.

We welcome our  Guest Designer for November

After spending far tooooo long trying to get my card
to look like the colour it actually is I have just
let it be knowing how hard purple is to photograph.
A pretty CAS card with a few die cut flowers behind my fence.
The arched die cut has patterned vellum behind the
purple front. Finished with a hello die and a tiny butterfly.
Adhered to the same purple card base. 
Head over to Our Gallery and check out
the great inspiration in store for you from
Karren and the Team.
 Why not come join us for this weeks challenge.

A Fabulous Day

The New Challenge over at Bizzy Becs Blog
is live and I have created a simple card as Guest Designer.
It's Anything Goes which makes it easy
to go with whatever comes to mind.

I totally love Tim's Wildflower Dies and have used
coloured with Lindy's Magical's
My go to sentiment stamp is
So versatile with so many great words to choose from.
I arranged the flowers on a die cut frame
and popped it in front of a smooched background.
and on to white card base. 
The blue flower has diamond dust in the middle but
not showing up here. 
Head over and see what the Team created
Love to see you add something to our Gallery.
There's a Mystery Stamp to be won by doing so.

Challenge Time at Creative Artiste Mixed Media

It's Challenge Time at Creative Artiste Mixed Media

I got a voucher from my bff for my birthday and
some of the products I used here are from that. 
I am so lucky that there is a store here in Oz
that sell AALL&Create products as I
soooooooooo love their products.
This is my take on a YouTube presentation from
the Talented Tracy Evans HERE
and I looooooooove her work.
Started by brayering the background and flower colours.
Then added some stamping - Splattered Numbers #350
Stamped and fussy cut flowers and inked pot
Elegant Numbers #752 and Containers #401
Added some texture using sand paste over
stencil #6 and washi tape #1 and #9.
Attached black stamped flower and 
popped the fussy cut flower heads and bowl
Of course I had to add white splatters,
some AA Fire Wall Wax and a few Liquid Pearls
to the centre of the flower,
completing with sentiment #40
corner rounding and attached to black base.
This was such fun and looking to more
makes from inspiration from Tracy and
her fabulous stamps.
My team mates have again made amazing 
Mixed Media Makes for this months challenge.
Head over and see for yourself.
They never disappoint do they?
Thanks for visiting and hope you enjoyed my project.

UPDATE! Popping this over to
Till next month - Cherrio from

An Allsorts Celebration and a Tic Tac Toe

 Loving a rainy day as it gave me a chance to
get messy and create a card for a couple of challenges.
Gardening can wait till tomorrow's sunny day.

I started  my background stencilling with
AALL&Create Mock-Croc #58
using texture paste, brusho's and 
Lindy's Magicals Spray.
Unfortunately the texture got a bit squashed
when I cut my circle.
Penned a couple of circles behind it for effect.
Flower is inked with the same colours.
Added tiny seeds 

 a Happy Birthday sentiment.
Flicked a few splatters
Attached to white card base. 

Allsorts Challenge are celebrating
a milestone 700th Challenge
How fantabulous is that!
and The Paper Players have a

I chose the middle row down
Die cuts, texture, birthday.

This card is heading over to the above challenges.
