That's all for now.
That's all for now.
The challenge at Lost Coast Portal to Creativity at the moment is Mail Art and I wanted to take part.
Here is my envelope - I had to blank out the address as it is already on its way to one of my friends.
I used a pre-made 5 x 7 inch envelope. I blended Distress Oxides over the front, using a mask where the address will be written. Next, I applied a darker colour through #78 Cloister Grille stencil. from AALL & Create.
I used the border stamp #34 with Versafine Clair Warm Breeze to apply the circles. Then I stamped the cats using #465 Tall Cats. I made some of them appear as if they were peeking from behind the address space. I bleached out some of the Oxide colour inside the cats to make them stand out a little more.
Finally, I inked around the envelope edges with black ink and doodled a border around the address space.
All stamps and stencils used are from AALL & Create.
Thanks for visiting.
Please let me welcome my new follower Gail Hutchinson. It's a pleasure to have you here, Gail!
Today I am sharing my GDT project for AALL & Create.
I made a lovely spring card for a May birthday featuring the Happy Dog and some flowers. I had a lot of fun mixing and matching words and letters to make the sentiment.

Many thanks to All Dressed Up, this month's guest sponsor,
Here is a journal page that I made:
As usual, I coloured the images with Copic markers and fussy cut them. The background was made with Janet's stencil, #96 Dandelion Field, and stamping with Janet's two background stamp sets, Background Noise and Visual Ingredients. I added the grasses from Snail's Pace and the sun from Suns and made my ducky scene.
Here are close ups:
May brings another challenge at Crafts Galore Encore.
The theme is always Anything Goes and the challenge lasts all month.
Our sponsor this month is Morgans ArtWorld and Morgan is offering three digi stamps to the winner.
Can you believe that we are in May already? Time is flying by! We are entering my favourite time of the year and I'm so happy to have lighter evenings and warmer temperatures.
We would love for you to join our challenge. The only rule is that you use at least one Gecko Galz product. The challenge runs until the 29th May.
I made a couple of items for customer challenge inspiration.
The first is a couple of Fairy Door Cards.
Here they are with the door shut:
And here they are opened:
My second project is a tiny 3D canvas. I used the back of the canvas as a 'shadow box' to layer up the images to make a secret garden:
