CAS(E) This Sketch 234 - Best Fishes

Hello!

I love a punny card and that's just what I've created for this week's CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge! :-)
I used SU! Jar of Love and Lawn Fawn Milo's Alphabet.
A very cool sketch this week and I know the team have created some AMAZING cards with it! I hope you visit them all to take a look and leave some love.

Thank-you for visiting me!

Fusion - Pastel Pencils

Hello!

Can you believe that I forgot where I was up to this week? I really did not realise I'd gotten to the end of the week, and as a result, this post is very late for the newest Fusion Card Challenge! But I'm here now, and this is my card.
I used PTI Teach and Inspire and SU! Jar of Love stamps.
I loved this inspiration so much and had so much fun making my card! I hope you're inspired to join us in the fun!

Thanks for visiting!

Happy Little Stampers August Watercolour Challenge - Bloom

Hello!

I just love flowers and I especially love watercoloured flowers! This month's Watercolour Challenge at Happy Little Stampers has the optional twist of BLOOM, which I just had to use. Can you believe it's already August? This year is flying by too fast.
I used Wplus9 Pretty Peonies stamped using Ranger Archival black and then watercoloured with Derwent Inktense pencils.
The Happy Little Stampers Watercolour Challenge always has an "anything goes" theme, so even if you don't want to use our optional twist you can always join in the fun, so long as you use watercolouring on your card. We have some wonderful cards submitted every month and so many different types of watercolouring. It's wonderful!

Thanks for visiting me! I hope you are inspired to join us this month.

CAS(E) This Sketch 231

Hello!

You would not believe how many cards I made for this week's CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge! I was starting to despair. They were all CAS (of course) and somehow they were not satisfying me AT ALL. Finally, I created a card that, while not a perfect take on the sketch, made me smile. :-) Oh, the angst of creating clean and simple cards! Some days it's impossible, haha!
I used Stampin' Up! Crazy About You stamps.
This sketch has so much more inspiration than my card shows! It's fabulous! I hope you're inspired to join us in the fun. :-)

Thanks for dropping by.

Fusion - Hello Cards

Hello!

I'm here with my latest card for Fusion Card Challenge where the inspiration is just awesome! I've again made a fusion card using both sketch and inspiration photo. I'm amazed, I'm usually a sketch OR inspiration girl, but when you can't choose between them you just need to use both. :-)
I think the cute little envelope dies are Wplus9. The sentiment is definitely Wplus9.
That inspiration photo has so much to work with. I didn't even get to using the flowers and greenery in my card!

I can't wait to see what everyone makes for this challenge. I'm betting on a colourful and beautiful gallery.

Thank-you for visiting!

The Challenge 90 - Sweet Florals

Hello!

Have you seen the inspiration photo over at The Challenge? Lesley is a master at creating inspiration, I tell you! That luscious chair has ideas swirling in my brain. This card is not the first idea that came to mind, but it's the first one that made it to paper. :-)
I used Stampin' Up! Jar of Love stamps. 
Isn't this beautiful?! I would love to have this chair. It wouldn't suit my decor at all, but I'm not sure I would mind that little problem if I could have it sitting there looking pretty for me. ;-)

Thanks for coming to visit!
