Several lovely blogging buddies have given me awards over the last few days and I want to thank you too - it means a lot that you thought of me, and I will display them all as soon as I can.
Hopefully back very soon with some more projects.

Image coloured with Distress Inks and Koi waterbrush, yet again - it's so therapeutic colouring these beautiful stamps.

The card is made by scoring and folding an A4 piece of card, squaring it up and using the waste to create a stand on the back.
Thanks for visiting - have a great Thursday xxx

Back again tomorrow with a little surprise and I'm dead excited! xx
The acetate is also overstamped with StazOn Cotton White, as is the Prima backing paper, which gives a lovely shadow effect.
This card also fits with the Arty Girlz Challenge this week which is 'Transparent' - I think the acetate front to my card qualifies.
Back later with more - got some new stamps to show off! xx

"Everywhere I look these days I find fantastic tutorials which suggests that everyone must love them. For this challenge I want you to make something (it doesn't have to be a card) following a Charmed Cards and Crafts tutorial or class. When you put your creation on your blog please link up to your chosen tutorial and then we can all have a look."
As I am loving using Tim Holtz Distress Inks at the moment, I decided this was the way I wanted to go, and there is a fabulous tutorial link which can be found on the Charmed Cards and Crafts website HERE and even better, the Distress Inks can also be purchased from Charmed HERE.
I used Tattered Rose and Shabby Shutters to create the background with some Cut & Dry foam. The image also uses Black Soot, Brushed Corduroy, Worn Lipstick and Walnut Stain and was created using a Koi Waterbrush. The colour is built up gradually to achieve the shading.
The sentiment is a freebie from Karen and papers are Imaginisce and Bo Bunny, with a Prima heart and ribbon from stash.
Just in case you didn't know, there will be a brand new Dottie and George bundle ready next weekend, so expect lots more samples here.

Please use three different design papers and three different types of embellishments on your cards! No more, no less.
(by types of embellishments we mean, buttons, brads, flowers, ribbons, beads, bling etc)
Of course, you can use any amount of 'plain' card stock!"
I love the warmth of these colours - much needed today!
