Just Us Girls #501 - Color Week



It's color week at Just Us Girls and Ina is our host.  She has a wonderful combination for us to play with.
I had the striped background in my drawer and combined it with the die cut flowers from Altenew.  A few splatters and label sentiment from N&T finished it off.

The design team and our guest Tristan Dawes have some colorful cards to inspire you.  Check them out and then make a card for our gallery.  We'd love to see you there.

The Flower Challenge #35 - August Reminder

For the original The Flower Challenge post 
I made a card with daisies on it - my favorite flower.  
My second favorite is poppies so I used a stamp from Sheena Douglas 
and watercolored with DIs.
I cut the panel, splattered it, added a sentiment from PB and put it on patterned paper from Altenew.  I had to tip my photo because those stripes were causing havoc with my eyes trying to make it straight.

We have Therese Calvird as our guest designer and Clearly Besotted as our sponsor, offering a $20 gift card.  You'll want to check out both of their sites for lots of wonderful inspiration.

Just Us Girls #500 - Trend Week



It's Trend Week at Just Us Girls with Vicki as our host and she wants to see cards with circles.  It's also a milestone challenge (#500) so there are prizes.  A random drawing will be held for gift certificates from the following stamp companies: $25 from STAMPlorations, $25 from CASual Fridays, and $15 from Dare 2B Artzy.

I heat embossed the SSS background stamp and watercolored it with Distress Inks.  The sentiment is also from SSS, layered 3 times.

How will you use circles on your card?  You are making one aren't you?  We'd love for you to join us.

Time Out #141

Here's the theme for this week's Time Out challenge.
I'm not a big relaxer.  I can't sit still for long although I have been known to sit in the swing by the lake for quite a while.  One thing does relax me, or at least time flies when I'm doing it, and that is stamping and coloring. 
I used the Hero Arts monthly kit to stamp all over my card and color with PolyChromos pencils.  That sentiment is so true, at least for me, and I suspect for a lot of you.

Thanks for dropping by.  I hope you have a relaxing week.
