WET, WET WET!!! Not the group!

Hi there everyone, welcome here,
Today I have a card for the CASology challenge which this week is..........

 this is my card



 and here is a little how I did it, pretty self explanatory but if you're new to stamping it might help :D







Stamped on my card first in Versafine black ink and then stamped again on a post it note. Cut out the wet lady :) and masked  her then with the Tim Holtz 'Spatters' layering stencil laid over her I inked gently with Distress, Salty Ocean.



Finally I coloured her with Copic pens. I debated whether to use a sentiment, in my stash I had one that said 'Make a Splash' which seems perfect but I didn't like the way it looked so left it off.
Lovely to see you :D Gay x

Turquoise, brilliant!!


Hi there, lovely crafty people, I'm back today with a couple of cards for LIM, this time it's a colour, nice colour too, turquoise one of my all time favourite colours especially when teamed with brown or orange, yum yum!

 and here is the other! Bad light again here today, raining. Sorry about the quality of pictures :( But we have had some great weather so I'm not complaining (;D)





Love those funky bows LOL
In the centre of the bow are gems, quite sparkly...

I have inked, stamped, sprayed and coloured the card to within an inch of it's life and had the best fun :D New TH dies inspired me!

 For the first card I used

Tim Holtz die
Anna griffin Embossing folder 'Rosa'
Dylusions inks
Crafter's Workshop stencil, Mini Petals
Lace and Dylusions inks.

For the second card I used

Round again :D

Hi Folks, Another quick card for LIM, round and round is the challenge, well I love circles :D so this one is purely fun

Circles............. balloons or bubbles, not sure but they look celebratory that's enough for me :D Inked through the Basic Circles stencil from Crafter's Workshop a stamp by Personal Impressions and viola!  
Now some sad news
love this, except mind would say "caffeine" or "diet mt. dew"
It's an unhappy Mustavcoffee writing this tonight, No more coffee for this little addict, it upsets the old insides, so from now on I'm coffee and caffeine free : ((( Very sad face. Now I know I'll live but it won't be the same without my daily cup of love :((((( LOL I know you'll understand my lovelies :D

Great to see you :D Hugs Gay x

It's a JOKE!

Hi Folks, Happy April fools day to you !!

Over at the CASology challenge  (do check it out ) I'm sure there will be many cards that are going to  make you giggle. The very talented team always come up with brilliant cards for the cues.
 This week I have the honour of joining them as Guest Designer because my card HERE was chosen by the lovely Gillian last week, thanks Gillian!




So today I'm attempting a joke
Jokes are the hardest cards of all, I think. I struggle with cards for men  but this was like pulling teeth LOL. 
Mr P has been running from the room in case I ask 'Now what's funny?' one more time :D I'm not really asking him, it's just me thinking out loud but I can imagine how annoying that is! Then he started calling me the comedy queen, oh for goodness sake !!! Well at least I kept it clean ;D

I'm absolutely sure you can do better than my meagre attempt, come join us :D

See you soon :D  Gay x

Going round and round,

Woah just like the Beatles song , 'the man with the thousand voices standing perfectly still,  round and round and round, woah ooh ho Ah ha!' 'It's The Fool on the Hill' one of my favourites :D
Welcome everyone :D
A quick post for LIM this week
Lucky Dip Challenge.
It also means that we have a Guest Designer, which this month is 
LTC
The theme for your cards this week is 
ROUND and ROUND
You may interpret this as you wish, but we must be able to recognise the connection!


 Two cards,..... one to say get well and the other a thanks card!
I inked up a background and used a stencil to add a brocade design. Cut out some circles and a die cut  from Crafts Too called 'Entwined' which I inked lightly, trimmed and raised on foam pads.
I'll be by to check out some Limettes work very soon :D Gay x
