Joy is a Flower that Blooms when You do ...

February 27th 2014
Can you believe it's nearly the end of February??? Where is the year going?

I couldn't resist making another Black & White card with this gorgeous "Black Calla" image available at the QKD Store! Maigan's image are always so great to work with - she has a lot of details and I just love the trademark "loooong" eyelashes LOL!!

I am also going to add this creation to The Cheerful Stamp Pad "Black & White" Colour Challenge!

Smile Sweetly...

February 24th 2014
Here is my Week 3 Page(s) for the Journal 52 Prompts - "You Make Me Smile" is the prompt & I couldn't resist using these Freebies I got from Freubels Freebies several years ago - they are very quirky which I love! I added the little letters which are from a collage sheet by itKuPiLLi.

Background was made using the credit card technique with bright coloured acrylic paints - I love the stripey effect! Fun & make you smile pages!

Black Calla Lady...

February 20th 2014

Today I am sharing a card with a new image by "Maigan Lynn" available at the Queen Kat Designs Store - I just love this image - has an elegant feel!

Image was printed on white shimmer card and I added some coloured highlights with soft coloured Copic Markers. I used some shimmer lace patterned paper for the background, a silk ribbon & diamanti buckle for some glitz and some sparkly diamonds - very classy!

I am also entering this card at The Cheerful Stamp Pad in Vicki's "Black & White" themed challenge!

Anti-Valentine's Day

February 19th 2014
A fun & different theme for this week's Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge - "Anti-Valentine's Day" - LOL!!! And we have the perfect sponsor for this challenge - Smeared Ink!

I've used a fun image "Monster Hearts - Virginia" from Smeared Ink for my Anti-Valentine's ATC. We should get some really great entries for this theme - always love something a bit different & non traditional!!!

Bowled Over ...

February 18th 2014

A card made especially for a friend of ours who turned 40 recently. He does play Lawn Bowls - of course he's not as old as this old chap on the card - and he is also a Greenkeeper like myself and my husband.

I coloured the image to match the uniform colours of the Bowling Club he plays for - he was most impressed!!! Image is from Just Inklined.

Flower Girl...

February 17th 2014
My card today is showcasing new February Release products from Gecko Galz - collage image and patterned papers. I used my sewing machine to edge the papers, added some lace, paper flowers, pearls and a cute little bird cage charm. A very "spring" themed card!


February 15th 2014
Another reminder for our Hearts & Love Challenge at the Just Some Lines Blog! My card for today is a simple style - I used a rose printed card which had the square frame cut out and added the JSL "Love" image behind it and I simply finished it with a sheer ribbon!

Happy Valentine's Day!

February 14th 2014
Happy Valentine's Day!!! Today's post is a page in my journal using a new image from the Queen Kat Designs Store - perfect for my February Page & Valentine's!  Images were all printed on tissue paper and "modge podged" to my painted page. I added some little heart sequins for a bit of sparkle and romance!!
Hope everyone is having a wonderful day - it's been raining all day here which is a total turn around to the heatwave we have been experiencing - so I have not been able to do any of my tennis court today - a day off to do nothing LOL!!!

Lucky in Love....

February 13th 2014

I'm sharing a Valentine Collage card using a new stamp from Queen Kat Designs "I Love You" and as I thought it had a bit of a vintage feel to it that's the look I went for with my card!

Backing Bingo collage image is from Gecko Galz and the cute little couple was a freebie from Lisa Vollrath which I got years ago!!

I loved adding bits and pieces to my card - haven't done a real collage style card for awhile so this was fun!

I am entering my card in 2 challenges - firstly The Cheerful Stamp Pad "Love/Valentine" challenge and secondly the Luna Girl "Vintage Red" Challenge - both perfect challenges for this card and time of the year!

The Age of Aquarius...

February 12th 2014

A new challenge at Wicked Wednesday this week and a great theme of "Aquarius". For my ATC I have used a gorgeous image from Michelle Perkett "Angelica" - I love her flowing hair and the starfish. I added a starfish embellishment with some string along with a few blue gems for some sparkle. Can't wait to see the entries for this challenge!

Mary Mary Quite Contrary...

February 11th 2014
Today I am sharing another page in my mini journal which I have made for Week 2 of the Journal 52 prompts "A Simple Place".

My page is a simple garden theme using a new image from the February Gecko Galz "Blarney" Collage Sheets. I painted the page with Fireworks Sprays (the nozzles are blocked and they wont spray so I had to use a paintbrush!!!) I stamped Dylusions images in the background and fussy cut the collage image and glued on top. And I can't believe I did some handwriting around the image!
I'm enjoying the Journal 52 Prompts although I am a bit behind but am just working at my own pace.

February 9th 2014
Some more "Hearts & Love" inspiration for our February Challenge at Just Some Lines. I love this gorgeous image of 2 friends sharing a sweet cup of tea. Patterned papers are from SheryK Etsy Store and are just perfect for my card!

Don't Feel Blue in Paris....

February 6th 2014
My card today is in blue tones - blue is a colour I don't use a lot but it does look nice and soft! Image is one of the new releases at the Queen Kat Designs Store - a perfect Valentine's image. Patterned digital papers are from Gidget Designs Etsy Store. I layered this card, added a ribbon and also added some beads to some hat pins and put on the side of the card.

Valentine's Day ATC

February 6th 2014
A perfect theme for the Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge this week - "Valentine's Day" - which is fast approaching!!! We have a new sponsor for this challenge and the heart frame on my ATC is from Eureka Stamps! I printed it onto some patterned paper and coloured the border with a darker pink Copic Marker. The vintage style woman and cupcake collage images are from iTkUpiLLi. I really like how this came out - vintage style with a bit of a modern look! 

I don't think there are any excuses for not creating an ATC for this challenge!!


February 2nd 2014

A new month which means a new challenge theme at the Just Some Lines Blog! And for this month of February we have a "Hearts & Love" theme. Remember you must use a Just Some Lines image to enter and there is a great freebie at the challenge blog for you to download!
