Hi everyone,

It's the middle of the month, so I'm back with a reminder of my card for The Rainbow Card Challenge.  This month our theme is Wonderfully White, and here's the inspiration image...


And here's a reminder of my card, the details of which can be found on my original post...

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

Although I spent much of the festive period prepping for new bi-monthly live Groovi demos on Facebook... more on that later... I still have a lot of cards I created last year that I'm yet to show you, so I better start today!

These two were some of the earliest I created with the Queen Mary duet grid, and I'm sure by now the other elements are familiar to regular readers?



Now, more about those FB lives... although I don't do YouTube videos (and never will!), a number of friends expressed an interest in how my cards were created... so, last September I started demoing one per month in my Creative Crew group.  Then, after posting my December 'live' creation in Clarity's Groovi Worldwide group, I responded impulsively to someone's post saying she wished there was some way to craft together virtually!  And me being me, instead of changing my 'usual' demo into a craft along... I'm now doing two... the 1st Saturday of the month is the regular one were I'll skip ahead a bit... and 3rd Saturday of the month will be the slower paced craft along!

So, regardless of whether you're a parcher, or just interested in the process, please send me a message HERE (or through FB Messenger if we're already connected) and I'll add you to the group!

Card: Unbranded white card blanks and backing card, and Clarity's pink parchment
Groovi Plates: Queen Mary duet grid, and Linda's Butterflies, and Bee
Tools and embellishments: Pergamano embossing, piercing, and cutting tools, Arteza pencils, and brads from my stash

Challenges (all top card)...
AG at Incy Wincy
#71 AG at Crafts Galore Encore
#107 AG at A Bit More Time To Craft

I'll be back soon with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then.

#13 Wonderfully White at Rainbow Card Challenge

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

It's not only the first of the month, but it's also the first of the year.  And with it and the latest challenge at Rainbow Card Challenge, it also brings a role for me.  Having worked with Mynn Kitchen, the amazing owner of the challenge, and before it, MHK Designs and House of Cards... all of which I've been honored to be a member of the design teams... I was absolutely FLOORED when Mynn asked me to take over as DT/ Challenge Coordinator!  Even now, weeks later, it still does!  I'm so honored and blessed to have worked with her pretty much for as long as I care to remember.  So, although it's not enough to express my gratitude... THANK YOU, MYNN!

One more thing before we get to the challenge, as mentioned last month, the DT Call continues, so please add DT to your entry.  Beginning in either February or March, the term will run until the end of 2020.

Befitting of the season, our theme this month is Wonderfully White, so please, if you must, use only a hint of a preferably neutral color.  After all, we are a usually monochromatic challenge!


And here's my card...


Card: Unbranded white card, and Clarity's clear parchment
Groovi plates: Tina's Primrose and Alliums
Tools and embellishments: Pergamano embossing and piercing tools, Clarity brads and plate mate, and Nuvo shimmer pen

Challenges...
#368 Use Snippets at Pixie's Snippets (snippets used for decoupaging flowers)
AG at TTCRD
#242 Christmas/ Winter + Sentiment at Aud Sentiments

I'll be back soon with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then.

Merry Christmas!

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

The card I'm sharing with you today is another incarnation of the same design you saw back on November 1st.  They have both, alongside over 40 others in various colors, arrived safely with the recipients, and indeed I snagged the pic from one of them because I forgot to take any of the others... oops!


As this is my last post of the year... and with it the decade... I want to thank y'all for your love and support.  It truly is appreciated more than you know!  And I wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and every blessing for the new year!

Card: Unbranded white card, and Clarity's blue parchment
Groovi Plates: Josie's King Charles duo and 'Twas the Night #4
Tools and embellishments: Pergamano embossing, piercing, and cutting tools, Clarity brads, Nuvo shimmer pen, and rhinestones from my stash

Challenges...
#202 'Tis the Season at Crafty Gals Corner
#106 AG at A Bit More Time To Craft
#296 AG at Brown Sugar

I'll be back on January 1st with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then,

Mid Challenge Reminder for TRCC - Regal Rainbow

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

It's the middle of the month, so I'm back with a reminder of my card for The Rainbow Card Challenge.  Please note though that this month's challenge closes on the 15TH!  We are a monochromatic challenge and while we ask you to keep your creations as such, we appreciate the need for neutral colors and or a hint of others.  However, this month our theme is REGAL RAINBOW, and this month we're asking you to use as many colors as possible.  Here's the inspiration image...


And here's a reminder of my card, the details of which can be found on my original post...



I'll be back soon with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then.

Framed Roses

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

Way back in September, I promised you I'd show you another design demonstrating the versatility of Linda's Roses & Lace plate.  I don't break promises, so here it is...


Can you see what's different, apart from the frame?  If you're thinking one of the roses is missing from the top left, you'd be right!  I omitted it so the design fitted the space.  Once the roses were in place, I added the frame behind, in much the same way as you'd mask of a stamped design before adding background detail.  Then, finally added the sentiment

Card: Unbranded white and lilac, and Clarity's lilac parchment
Groovi Plates: Princess Charlotte Lace Corner Duet, Linda's Roses & Lace, Nested Scallop Squares, and Occasions Border
Tools and embellishments: Pergamano embossing, piercing, and cutting tools, Clarity brads, and rhinestones from my stash

Challenges...
#228 AG at 613 Avenue Create
AG at TTCRD
AG at Crafty Sentiments

I'll be back soon with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then.
