Southern Girls - challenge 164 - tic tac toe - I've gone with the diagonal of flowers ,image and ribbon.
We've had rain now for 2 days which doesn't happen very often - yesterday my little kitty Bella was very unhappy - we have a litter in the spare bedroom which she refuses to use - she wouldn't go out in the rain ( it was very very heavy ) - we sat her in the litter tray but it did no good - I'm guessing her tiny bladder couldn't hold it in anymore and at 4.15 this morning she came and woke us up so that we could let her out - as it's raining again today I have a funny feeling we will have to go through all this again tonight.

Scrapbook Boutique - June challenge - a great colourboard if you love gold and black - my two patterned papers have been in my stash for over 10 years and are from Paperflair - I used my favourite stamp for the sentiment which I stamped in gold and the used a clear embossing powder - 3 layers each for the trees to give them some depth.
Well ,the cold have really arrived now with a minus 4 last night - my craft room was so very very cold this morning - I did turn on the heating but for the short time I was in there it really didn't do any good - the lens on my camera kept misting over and I had take several pics to get just one reasonable shot.

It seems forever since I last posted - I did make some cards at the end of April and posted them off completely forgetting to take a photo.

This card uses some of my washi tape stash - the background is very very pale blue - just need to add a sentiment -still deciding
'come rain or shine I'm glad your mine'
'we are better together'
' you make me happy when skies are grey'
'whatever the weather glad were together '

Beccy's Place - March challenge - I coloured the image then chopped it up and layered each section on black
.I'm not a person who goes for bold bright colours but Gerberas are the exception OR so I thought -when I passed my local florist yesterday I had a look inside and there were some beautiful Gerberas in white and the palest of pinks - who knew ?

I 'm not really sure about this card -I love the background paper but I when I added silver or pale blue tones it looked a bit drab and boring - bring on the pink - a pale pink.
Christmas Card Throwdown - March sketch - I wasn't sure if my little tree at the bottom of the card would be allowed but then I noticed a member of the DT has some silver holly on her card.
Southern Girls - challenge 155 - pop it up - I popped up my little pink tree.

I stamped a swirl pattern with Versamark and clear embossed.
I use distress inks in 'worn lipstick' and 'weathered wood'
Tuesday Morning Sketches -sketch 392 - you mentioned using a Bible page which I did not really want to try so used a book page instead - if you add texture and colour you can keep the script visible and not desecrate your Bible.

I think this is the first time I have bought brown papers - I really liked the designs and hope I can make some pretty cards with the papers.These two cards were made with one sheet of striped paper and a tiny amount if the diamond pattern.I think the blue works really well with the brown.

I never got back to the card making yesterday so this morning I made sure Bella had her breakfast and was in a sunny spot in the lounge.I won the sentiments stamp a few years ago and as it's unmounted I have no idea where it came from- the flowers are from Creative stamping magazine .
I used AquaMarkers and lots of water.
Southern Girls - retro challenge -buttons or brads,
Tuesday Morning Sketches- I used this weeks sketch 387 for my layout.

Bella looking in the box of ink pads - it's important to pick the right colour.
I was hoping to make a couple of cards this morning but Bella had other ideas - she picked a 'Happy Birthday " stamp. I'm sure once the sun moves away I can have my desk back.

I used a rick st dennis image coloured with watercolour pencils - the sentiment is a stamp from a woodlands hug set.

I hope you all had a good time with family and friends over the holidays - we don't do the chrissy thing in our house and when I asked my DH what we should have for our main meal on Dec 25th he said "lamb curry " and delicious it was.
I Love ProMarkers - challenge - 325 Anything goes - I used AquaMarkers and it has to be said there was a lot of water involved to get the colour just right.
