Week 182 Anything Goes

Week 182

Today is Chrissie's Birthday and her present to you is to have 
Anything Goes!
The Recipe is just to have fun! 

Remember to leave some white space and keep it Clean and Simple!

Whoops! Paper pieced again this week!
The image, sentiment and pink paper are Pink Petticoat, 
the blue paper is from Doodlebug 

The white panel and a strip of pink paper have been die-cut using
MFT Die-namics chevron dies then mounted on 3d foam pads and
to finish I've added gems, enamel dot and glamour dust for added sparkle.

My piccie of my birthday card for Lady Limette is lost somewhere in my camera memory, in the meantime here's a birthday card made with the negative space left after cutting a boat on my Portrait, for another card.  Pink Petticoat sentiment.
For my card this week I  chose to use this Cuttlebug Embossing Folder. I inked one side with Distress ink, before running it through the machine, I was really pleased with the effect. The matching border folder was left un-inked for contrast.
The single house was cut from a row of die-cut houses from Memory Box.
Once again the sentiment was computer generated, using Jennifer Lynne and Problem Secretary Normal fonts. The mount is from a Die-Namics pierced stax die.
I shall be on my way to Spain today ...and on my birthday too, with our daughter and grandchildren. What a fun time to be had.


Back next week.....

Fingerprint ShowCASe

We would like to congratulate everyone who joined in with our Fingerprint Challenge, thank you for the positive feedback we received, we're glad that at least you had fun, and we do apologise for leaving you with inky fingers!
The imaginative entries were a delight to behold.
Here are the cards we chose for our ShowCASe this week.

This watercolour flower looks amazing...who would have thought that it was made with fingerprints!

This could have been the illustration from the book itself! Amazing!

We just had to choose Gay again this week, her coneflowers are simply wonderful!

Here is our ShowCASe badge for you.... with our admiration!

It will be Chrissie's birthday tomorrow... but she's not letting on how many candles she'll need!

Week 181 Theme

For our theme this week, we're going with Sarah's suggestion of using a song title to trigger your imaginations!
This week's song is 
Singin' in the rain!
You can take any aspect from the title as the starting point for your creation.  Rain, weather, music, dancing... let your imagination take flight.
Just remember to keep it Clean and Simple, with plenty of white space!
On holiday!!
I've used a cute little digi-image from Squigglefly.
He's been paper-pieced using papers from Pink Petticoat, 
coloured with Promarkers, glossy accents and a Winkette of Stella.

The sentiment is Uniko Studio - Flower Power and
to finish I've used Doodlebug sequins and pearls from my stash.

I've used quite a detailed image for my card, but by keeping the colours restricted to grey and yellow I hope it has kept a CAS look.  No longer available, this was drawn by the very talented Phindy O'Neill.  Computer generated sentiment, more singing in the rain on my blog
PS Thank you to all who entered last week's fingerprint challenge. there were some amazing ideas and I loved looking at them!
This is a sweet stamp from Lili of the Valley which I purchased recently and I just love this dear little bear... I think he could do with a pair of wellies. It's coloured with Mirage pens and mounted on Dienamics pierced Stax die-cuts. The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted.
There is another offering on my personal blog!

It seems that lots of you had great fun with the finger print challenge last week, we do apologise however, for leaving you all with inky fingers!
