Arty Girlz - Green

What a fabulous theme for Arty Girlz this week & an amazing Guest Designer too. I have had the pleasure of visiting Fabrizio's blog & he makes some fabulous stuff! I love green. I looked back over the last couple of weeks & a lot of my designs contain it. It used to be my favourite colour signifying fresh new growth/birth of nature in spring. Now I love all colour. This card is a real mish mash of offcuts from Basic Grey Papers & some green bazzill card. I have used Mortifica, Jade. Blush, Lucky & a flower brad from Papermania to match. The ribbon was free the stamp is from a Studio G set. Button & bow from my collection.
I have a love affair with circles & am cross that I don't have a punch in between the two I have punched here. These are the fabulous Fiskars Squeeze punches, I love em... The card is cream but the light is so wierd no colours are coming through true.

I recieved something totally wonderful in the post today & until I get the pictures edited I will leave you all with this sneaky peak. I will reveal my awesome gift tomorrow!!

Hey, girlie girl! Busy, busy, busy.

Oh wow, such gorgeous projects you have here. LOVE your CJ layouts! How cool are those!!

Love your layout of your 40th birthday treat! Hmm, you gave me an idea of what I should do for my 30th birthday. Haha.

I'm kinda sad and overwhelmed right now. Hubby's gone for another week (he's in a business meeting away for 2 weeks) and I haven't had any time to myself 'coz there's a little 3-year-old always needing attention. *sigh*

The only thing that keeps me sane is the Net and scrapping and getting nice online visits from wonderful people like you.

Thanks, Paula dear, your comments always make my day. =)

*hugs*

oooooooooh! i LOVE this card, i loooove the circles, and not for the first time i am amazed and thrilled by the way that almost ALL basic grey can be coordinated with almost all OTHER basic grey...yet another reason to crave their already highly crave-able stuff, eh? but back to my main point which is: you have made a WONDERFUL card from all your little bits and bobs!!! :)
