• Clearly besotted,  The Flower Challenge

    June Reminder @ The Flower Challenge

    Hello friends Its reminder time at The Flower Challenge For my entry this time I chose #12 Tic-Tac-Toe and the column blue/CAS/sentiment For my card I took some aqua paper and lightly pounced some hero arts unicorn white pigment ink through a Winnie and Walter leaf stencil for a subtle background.

    Addicted to CAS Challenge 127: Music

    Hi everyone The current addicted to CAS Challenge is Music. I really struggled with this as I don’t have any music related stamps or dies, but then I saw this fun bear by Rosies studio, and he really looks like he’s dancing to me.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
