Guest Designer Spot for MUSE

Hi there crafty friends I've got some mega exciting news for you in this
post as I'm Guest Designing for The Muse Card Challenge today!

Whoa! I was speechless (for just a second) when I received the message
from Ardyth asking if I'd like to create a card for this fabulous challenge!

Without thinking too deeply about what I'd create, I zipped a message 
straight back with a HUGE 'Yes Please!' so here's my card 
and I hope you'll feel inspired to play along this week!

If you follow my blog regularly you may remember I attended the
Happy Little Stampers craft retreat in Swindon, UK last month.
As well as meeting a bunch of equally excitable crafty ladies we were 
introduced (some for the first time) to the magical properties and uses 
of Brushos by our super host and organiser Kylie of Happy Little Stampers.

So I'm 'hooked' and here's another example using Brushos to create a heart-shaped 
 jigsaw ... it really was tough piecing this one back together and had me wishing 
for a little piece of that Press n Seal stuff that so many American crafters use.

I love vibrant colours and die-cuts on my cards and here I've used the Neat & Tangled 
Heart of Gold die along with a 'Sending' word die by Simon Says stamp. 
The 'Hugs & Kisses' sentiment is by Clearly Besotted and to enhance the 'yellow' 
 in my 'brusho' heart I've added a strip of designer paper from Echo Park.

I can't wait to see how you are inspired by my card, perhaps using die-cuts, brushos,
the layout or maybe the colours. Whatever takes your fancy and I'm certainly 
looking forward to visiting your blogs this week to see how you've 'cased' it.

Here's the link to the Muse Challenge blog to play along.

I'd also like to enter my card at the Happy Little Stampers Challenge 
... Anything Goes with Dies
It would be rude not to as Kylie (owner of HLS) taught me all I know
about Brushos! LOL!

Thanks as always for stopping by my blog and huge thanks to the
 Design Team at Muse for asking me to help out this week.
