This week at Crazy Card Party, Regs is asking to see us try something new. I wasn't sure what to do at first. But then I decided to show a new thing I just tried with my layouts. I have always admired how Ali Edwards prints journalling right on her photos. So I added a bit of journalling to a few photos using a free software called Photoscape. It is pretty basic but it worked well.
Lots of glare...sorry. But you can see the lines of text I added to my photos.
Also new here are the wood veneer stars I just bought at a crop this past weekend. And I used my days of the week dies for the first time to do "Sat" since I wanted to do my date nice and large, also like Ali does.
I can't wait to see what new things the other Party-Ers try this week!

I thought I'd keep on a roll and play along with Simon Says Wednesday challenge again. This week it's Anything Goes, featuring Simon exclusive products.
I had fun playing with my Simon set "Artful Flowers." I embossed them in white and watercoloured them in with some distress markers. I also added some leaves from Altenew's Painted Flowers.
Thanks for stopping by!

I haven't played along with a Simon challenge in a while. Here's something for this week's Wednesday challenge, Create with Critters. I put my new Impression Obsession stag in a snow globe!
It has certainly been wintery lately!

This week at Crazy Card Party, Dee is asking to see GOLD. Big shocker there...we all know how much she loves to craft with gold.
I actually don't use it too often...I think I am more a silver girl. But I had a lot of fun going a bit crazy with gold on this Christmas card...
Gold paste, gold foil and gold ink...wow!
And I thought I'd post this tag too...
I just love that sentiment from Mama Elephant!
I can't wait to see what kind of golden goodness the other Party-Ers create this week!

This week at Crazy Card Party, Patricia is asking to see something wintery.
Most of my Christmas cards I made this year had a "winter" theme! Here is one of my faves...
I watercoloured the background to sort of look like the northern lights. I love the way the little houses and tree show up against the brilliant night sky. I pasted some snow falling to finish it off. Love!
I can't wait to see what kind of wintery scenes the other Party-Ers create this week!
