BINGO, CAS,and some free hand painting

Morning guys,well the weather has changed here its dull,and wet not cold but kinder muggy.  Sure its the weather that makes,my mood go from,bright cheery to down and flat.
But hey never mind,sure it will pick up I hope.
Right DT time at anything goes,this week is,BINGO
Just love these challenges,when you get to pick,lol I choose to go accross the middle,
So this is what I came up with,this is a scalloped card,and I have cut of the bottom of the card,and added it to the top,and added the paper,here is what I came up with.

So as you can see I have used,Tilda,flowers and my pins,the image is colored with my pencils. You can buy Tilda and lots of other goodies at the Craft den,which is HERE
My other teamies,have come up with some,stunning creations this week,which you can see,HERE
We would love to see you all this week,as you all came up with some Gorgeous work last time,so if you would like to play,please pop over HERE to join in the fun.

Right next I have a card for the less is more challenge,I get really upset when I miss one of the girls challenges,and wanted to make sure this week I joined in. The theme this week is one layer card plus embossing. I have used a La Blanche,stamp,one of my embossing,files,and a Kanban sentiment.  Not sure if I will be able to get any more from QVC as Dawn has left and is going to join Create and Craft,so not sure if they will keep the craft show or not.
Sorry for the long post,but I love playing with my paints,and decided to have a play using NO STAMPS,just free hand with my paint brush so be gentle with me LOL,
Here it is,painted onto mountboard,

They are supposed to be,Sweet pea's roses and just some,odd spalshes of color here and there. Then added some  leaves,not going to enlarge this lol,
Before I go just want to,thankTracey,Deb,Amanda,and Lisa for adding to my list of followers,bless your heart guys that really does,make my day.
Sorry its a long post,have a lovely day everyone.
I have not enlarged any of my,cards,etc today as not sure if,they look better this size sometimes,I think they may be too in your face,what do you think this size or larger?

Less is more,one,layer card embossing
stampwithfun pink and green
craftsyourdaysaway white plus one,hope my cas card is okay

Hi again Cheryl,
I LOVE your AG card, that image is so sweet & the colours are really effective!
But the other free painting is just STUNNING! I used to paint watercolours (not fantastic but I had a go!) but never done it on one of my cards, what a fab little idea! (I'd say I'd like to try it, but you may think I'm crazy.)haha.


Kathryn said...

Fabulous card Cheryl, love how you used the bottom scallop as a frame along the top of the card, great idea. Love the painting, the colours are really bold and striking, very talented of you, BTW you can get La Blanche stamps on line, K x
