Week 191 Recipe

For our Recipe this week we would like to see
Mostly Words
Often a sentiment seems unnecessary and at other times the words are all you need!
This is one of those times!
See what we have made for you this week!

This is a really simple idea. Scrabble letters downloaded from the internet and a computer generated sentiment. The letters were cut out by hand and added to the black backdrop.
Many thanks for all those who sent me good wishes for my holiday last week. I had a wonderful time in Guernsey, Although it was my first visit there, I'm sure it won't be my last.

Uniko Studio: Snowflakes & Clearly Besotted Merry Word dies
The 'Christmas' sentiment is also from CBS
The 'Merry' is die-cut from shiny purple foil card and the snowflakes from
DCWV Glitter card. I've added a few gems and stars for some added interest too.

Made with a very useful new Stampin Up set called Endless Wishes:  multiple sentiments in two sizes and assorted sizes of snowflakes.  I've added tiny blue pearl gems to the snowflakes.

As always we each have made additional examples for the challenge which you will find on our personal blogs. 
Please pop over to see us there as we love to  have you visit us too!

Week 190 Theme

For our theme this week we have chosen
For this your card can have any reference to either music or dancing in some form.
It should give you plenty of scope to let your imaginations run!

Here are the examples from us!

 Impression Obsession stamp coloured with Copics.  I much prefer images like this stamped in brown, and have used the same for the SU sentiment.  Edge of card embossed using a portion of an 8" folder

You Rock die-cut sentiment was a lucky freebie ages ago from
Dies to Die for and I've been hanging on to it waiting for the ideal
opportunity to use it ... and here it is.
The guitar has been in my stash for about 10 years! 
Can't remember where it's from it's so old.
For a bit of dazzle ... I've added some nail heads from Josy Rose.

Here is a simple card made with a stamp from Docrafts, coloured with Mirage Pens. 
I loved reading Roald Dahl stories to my kids in school when I was teaching and I'm sure many of your will recognise Willy Wonka from Quentin Blake's illustrations. However, to me he looks as though he is dancing!
The sentiment was computer generated.
The die cuts are Lil Inker and Dienamics with a little of  Couture Creation's Adagio embossing folder for added interest.

As ever there are more illustrations for this challenge on our personal blogs and we would love you to pop by and see those too!

Have fun with this one... Chrissie will be in Guernsey on hols this week so may not have so much chance to pop by with comments, but will try her best.
