Twisted Thursday's challenge

This card uses the Twisted Thursday layout. It reminds me of portrait on a wall.
The Gorjuss girl is coloured using Stampin' Up markers.
Congratulations to Anne for winning this challenge.

Flower Soft

This simple card uses flower soft to add a bit of fluffy magic. Is it just me who thinks it looks like the stuff used on train layouts to make grass? The paper and ribbon are Stampin' Up.

I saw this card layout on but unfortunately I don't remember who made it. The original card had buttons where I have used flowers.

I was feeling totally uninspired to stamp so decided to set myself a challenge. I recently bought a book by Claudine Hellmuth which includes cards for colours and topics. She adapted the idea from something she did at art school, so as the topics don't really apply to cards I decided to make my own lists.

Here are some examples from the four lists I used:
Topics - wings, funny, places, background
Colour - black, red, pink, purple
Embellishments - brads, ribbon, designer paper
Company - ellusive images, bella,

I labelled them all 1 to 10 using excel and asked my hubby to choose a 4 digit number. The number he picked gave me Topic = Place, Colour = Autumnal, Embellishment = Flowers and Company = Bella. The Bella stamp I used is called Paris, so that is also the place. :-)

Why not write lists to suit your preferences. My lists also include use a new stamp/old stamp, use something from my desk and open a random box!

Have a lovely week, Anne

Paper - Stampin Up
Markers - Stampin Up and copics for the dog
Flowers - Prima with zoom dots
Sentiment - Kirsty Wiseman CD

Here is a quick and easy birthday card made with a gorjuss image my mate Anne gave me. The elusive images butterflies are left over from another project. I couldn't resist using the cute chicken, though she looks a bit out of place on a pink card.
