Muse DT

Can't believe that the school holidays are over already where did the six weeks go !
But never mind at least when this posts over at Muse I will have done my first morning in and only another 8 weeks to go before the next holidays  :)
Again I used  a linen look card because when you use such a small image it fills in the white space and  I feel that it makes your  image pop more .
I punched the candles out and diecut out the square, backed them first with the glittery paper and then with orange card before die cut out another square .finally stamped my sentiment...thank goodness for the mini misti!

This sounds such an EXTREMELY simple card doesn't it?? well it took me 5 goes to do the row of candles evenly spaced out and then it took 4 goes to get the orange of the flames to be all even too !! why ?? I don't know:)

Hoping it will inspire you to join in with us this week ....maybe you'll find your candles will be on a cake or will it be the rainbow colours or the glitter paper ???what ever inspires you I can't wait to see you in the gallery!

P.s and thanks for taking the time to look

Cas-ual Friday

Its our anniversary in a couple of weeks and although I know my husband prefers cards that have more humour than lovey dovey on them ,,,,this time I thought I'd give him more of a punny card!

Image and sentiment are from Clearly besotted and as I used flex markers , promarkers and chalk for the background thought it would fit the challenge over at Cas-ual  Friday which is to use your favourite colouring medium ..well I have used all of my favourites !
Thank you for popping over and taking the time to look!

Muse DT

This week for Muse I am still determined to try new layouts ! 

Well maybe not that new :) but using soft grey cardstock I cut out  a 5x5 card .I cut out the centre circle using avery elle pierced circles .I cut a regular circle slightly smaller and stamped it with an Altenew sentiment.Laid it aside and made my MFT flashy florals .(Love this set so easy to use!)

Finally I popped the slightly smaller circle in the space (I was going to leave the circle open but think I prefer the thin empty space between the two circles).

Hope my card inspires you to join in with us this week and cant wait to see you in the gallery! 

Thanks for looking

MCV 53

Whenever I saw Chriss's beautiful inspiration card this week at MCV I know what I wanted to do... 

Using a Poppy die for the poinsettia's I cut  3 of them out  and coloured in the leaves with  a flexmarker ...love these!  I added a dot of liquid pearls in the centre and then mounted my card in gold mirror card as my panel wasn't popping out enough .Then added that to my main card that had a textured surface.
 Oh and I loved how Chriss had added the supplies that she had used so I was inspired to do that to :)

A very simple and traditional card but one I could recreate easily , but for now another card done !

Thank you for taking the time to look

Time out challenge

"Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine"
Anthony J. D'Angelo

This is the word inspiration over at the TIME OUT challenge 
...and as we are sadly lacking any sun at the moment I found myself drawn to make a sunshiney card !

I used an old stencil that was languishing in a drawer and a hero arts sentiment ,I would have prefered a pair of sunglasses rather than the heart but unfortunately I had none! so went instead with the Su punched heart with a swipe of wink of stella .

Thanks for taking the time to look
