Muse # 5....and CASology # 32

Another favourite of mine Marion Vagg is the Muse Challenge # 5 this week.  I thought it was quite clever to make that pattern with tape!!! I loved the bright sunny colours too. I decided to replicate with my MFT squiggle border die.  I wanted a variegated look and I haven't played with my distress inks in a while..... It was nice to get my hands dirty again.
After some prompting from a couple of fellow crafters....I have linked this card up with this weeks CASology FLAME challenge.  Some people are so creative and SEE more than what is in front of them....
me ? not so much lol!! (thanks Ardyth x)

thanks for popping in :)

Muse #4 and CAS{E) #15

I think Therese Calvid is one talented.....no... SUPER talented card maker!  her imagination and creativity blow me away! I really love her style and feel super lucky to be on the DT with her at Scrapbook Boutique. When I noticed she was this week's MUSE challenge #4 I had to join in.  I have coupled this challenge with another DT of Therese's....CAS{E}this sketch #15.  I have wanted to join in for a while, but have never really had the time :(

Here is my take on the challenge.....

It was SO GOOD to make this card!! I love getting my supplies out and having a play!! It has been sooooo long!!

I love my new stamp from Hero Arts and Basic Grey Lucielle....it is just gorgeous and keep an eye out I have made a few cards with this pretty background stamp.
I've used a sheet of clear transparency on this card and I think it looks great with the floating heart (MFT).

I don't usually give my hubby a Valentines card, but I will this year I suppose........can't really give it to anyone else ... lol
