Dream Valley Challenges-Girlie
CHNC-Use the word "Joy"
Winter Wonderland-Christmas Joy
It has been cooler the past 2 days and I am so happy! I hate the heat so this cooler weather makes me skip for joy..well, if I skip. I might knock out a hip so I will skip to my lou in my head. Yes, Christmas will be soon upon us and I have been so lax in my Christmas cards, so I decided to make a card and girlie one at that with lots of sparkle and attention grabbing colours. I had this stencil for years so I finally used the stencil and placed the paste on top followed by the green sprinkles so it would adhere to the paste. After that was dry, I coloured the other 2 letters in hot pink with my pastels. I stamped the holly leaves and embossed them in green twinkle glitter powder and in pearl green powder and fussy cut them out. I took some leftover cardstock in pink and glitter white and used the double sided tape to adhere it all together. I will send this card to my sister who loves pink.

Simon Says-Stamp On It
I love Sue Wilson's stamps who is an artist inspired by the Native teachings of animal totems. She has taken her designs and placed them on stamps and I love them! I stamped the elephant on basic white and coloured the elephant in girlie colours since this is for a girl who just got married and she loves elephants. I took white card stock and coloured the background with some subtle distress inks, fussy cut the elephant out and placed her (can't be a boy) on the card with pop-up dots, stamped and embossed the word and finished it off with some border stickers.

Butterfly Challenge-The Letter E-Used all 6 from the wheel-Embossing Folder, Embossing powder, Embellishment, Emerald, Eucalyptus, Electric Yellow
The Flower Challenge-Anything Goes
My hubby and I will be celebrating 12 years together this coming weekend so this card will be for him. I hope he will like it. He has put so much love and effort into our backyard/sideyard garden(we are on a corner lot) and his labour shows it. I am forbidden to touch the plants since I am the kiss of death..I once killed a spider plant so that tells you a lot about me with plants. I am so happy to have been able to use all the E elements from the Butterfly Challenge. I stamped the saying, (which I found in Vancouver when I was there in July) with green embossing powder powder, on a cream cardstock. I took an emerald green metallic paper and embossed it with a flower motif using my cuddlebug. I also took a die cut and cut out the centre with the sizzex machine and placed the cream cardstock so the saying peeks through the cutout part. I stamped, in gold and embossed in gold embossed powder, the flowers and fussy cut them out and placed them on each side with the smaller flowers raised up using the pop up dots. I stamped the little flowers in green and embossed them with pearl green and stuck them onto the card along with the butterfly. I coloured them with my tombow markers in the colours suggested by the Butterfly challenge. I think this is a good card for a man...I hope:) I am so happy to be part of the Flower challenge and Eclectic Ellapu. All the challenges are always so much fun to partake in.
