JUGS #367


The challenges are coming fast and furious at the moment!

Here is a card I made for

and the challenge is

As you can see from the challenge the sentiment is the focal point so there is not a
lot on the card to distract from the 'Get Well Sentiment'

I have used a Cameo Cut
Tim Holtz Distress inks
Spellbinders Dies
Sentiment Stamptv

I went to a Breast Cancer fundraiser this afternoon and took my cards with to sell! 
I left early as I was tired so not sure if they were all sold but I hope so!

My lady's target was $1000.00 and before I left the total was well over $3000.00
with more raffles and auctioning to do! 
So well done Maree!

Well I wasn't going to enter this weeks challenge at JUGS

I headed for images and found this picture of a Pineapple which suited I thought!

Here is my card

Here is the link to JUGS

The sketch I used can be found at under the October Sketch Challenge

Many Leaves and a Pumpkin


Although we don't celebrate Thanksgiving, I think it is a lovely sentiment
to say 'Thank You'
I find the fall colours beautiful too!
We really don't have fall in the part of Australia where I live - nothing very distinctive - but I
love to make cards to celebrate the season!

Here is my card

I am entering it into challenges at:


What I used
Tim Holtz Alteration dies: Mixed Media & Garden Greens
Sentiment: Inspired By Stamping
Pumpkin: Miss Kate Cuttables (I think)

Thanks for looking and Happy crafting!
