Congratulations with Beads


Just a quickie - been away at a christening over the weekend with no internet access - it's taken me ages to catch up in blogland!

Ok - this is for five challenges:

MUSE - inspiration provided by my blog friend Ardyth:


Paper Smooches SPARKS - inspiration from this photo:


A Blog Named Hero - Freestyle



Less is More - Recipe USE BEADS, and finally

Pattern Play - all the fun has finished, but I still wanted to link up my homework.

Off to a silk painting class...

  2. Love this - although it's completely different from mine, it still has the 'riotous' feel of movement in the circles! I'm so glad you played along!

  8. Hey Shirlye! I've also been away for several days...and it does take up some time to play catch-up! Having said that, took a peek at all the fabulous cards you posted lately and love everything that I see! The Divide & Conquer cards are all fabulous - great colors!

    I love this card (cha-ching with 5 challenges!), especially the earthy blues and greens! Great idea to sprinkle the beads around the sentiment, which resemble some type of confetti being tossed about in a congratulatory whoot whoot!
