Muse DT 221

As you will have read this is my farewell post over at Muse :(

My life and that of Mr Jems (Darnells name for my hubby...dont you just love it!)has taken a new direction ,one which I have wanted to do for a very long time and can't wait to get started!

But it will make  cardmaking difficult at times so though  I will continue to make cards (how could I stop!)as often as possible and to take part in the Muse challenges - after all it is my favourite place to find inspiration!!!!I felt that I couldn't commit 100% at the moment, and that's not fair to my very talented teamies .

So for them and to all of the other fabulous card makers that join in with the Muse challenges I wanted to say a heartfelt thank you....
What better way to say it then than through a card :)

Muse was my very first DT role and I have just loved it!.There is nothing to describe that feeling when the post goes live and you hope that someone will play along with you ...dread ,relief and downright covetness ...is that a word?? :) as you see what everyone comes up with and think wow why didn't I think of doing that !
Ladies it has been a blast ,see you in the gallery one last time thank you!

Time out and other challenges

I was so chuffed that I found my mojo again and I enjoyed making the card for Arydth's birthday sooo much that I found myself wanting to see how they would look done different ways so above is the 2nd one I did ...I really wanted to take part in the  Time Out challenge as my blog friend Michele Ferguson has the honoured guest spot this time, and she has chosen the saying :-

'Flowers and friends make life a garden' 

after I made it I saw the challenge over at the Seven Hill blog and it was to....

I think I have followed what they meant:) by first diecutting out a square,then stamped in memento black ink  Mama Elephant Freestyle florals and then coloured using promarkers by just using the colours red, yellow and blending them it made that lovely orangey red and of course green.
 I then diecut out the 'fabulous' sentiment from (MFT) , I decided to cut out 4 more of the sentiment using scrap card to make it really stack up when I placed it back into the original 'fabulous' diecut - problem was it was now very difficult to see ...was now more of a hidden message on the card so I thought a wink of stella would make it stand out more - mmm no! so I did a close up for you to see it better hopefully :)

Seeing the colours I thought it might also be suitable for the the
 Cupcake Inspirations  challenge too so I'm going to link it up there too !
Phew 3 challenges one card ??unheard of for me!!!!

If you are still with me lol then I made the last one a male card,again with a close up of the 2nd diecut !

I would like to thank you for taking the time to sit through all of what seems a very long post!
Thanks again
