Saturday 1 July 2017


How exciting is that. Not only Guest Designer for the month but its also a 5 Saturday month so you get to see me 5 times, you lucky duckies.

Ok for this week
WAHOO,  400th challenge, that is so cool.
Cant wait to see what all the others have done and there are two sponsors
this week Dare 2B Artzy and STAMPlorations.

I have gone all STAMPlorations on this card this week

I white embossed this wonderful rose with faint sentiment
in the background on watercolour cardstock then did very
light Zig watercolour, going back over areas on the rose
for shadow.

Same on the leaves.

Die cut the sentiment in gold cardstock, stamped the rest of the
sentiment from the Celebrate set and finished off with a few

Now its time to go to Just Us Girls and see what wonderful cards the Design Team 
have made for your Inspiration.


Without the twist

Thank you so much for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.
