Arty Girlz Challenge

Oh I can't believe it.....the very last challenge on Arty I know that I have not found the time to join in for quite a while....and Arty Girlz was one of the first challenges I took part in when I started blogging....but hey I am now finding little pockets of time here and there so I popped across yesterday for a little squint at the new challenge and wow...gobsmacked.   Julie and Crissi are such lovely girls and mega talented too.....I wish them well in whatever they decide to do....but I am so going to miss Arty Girlz.    Now they did hint that they may be back.....fingers crossed everyone...but they will still be posting on their personal not disappearing off the planet totally.
The very first challenge on Arty Girlz was they have decided to end with the same....still can't believe I had to join in the farewell challenge......

Images: Hero Arts "Thinking of You"
stamped with Versamark and Embossed with Seafoam White
Butterfly: Clear Stamp Set
Flowers and Border: Craftwork Cards
"Japanese Doll...Choko" Stamp Set
Background created with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads
Peeled Paint....Weathered Wood and Walnut Stain
This is so naughty of me but this is just a sneaky peek of a demo/workshop project I am working on at the moment and I am just having the best fun with these fabulous I had to share......but I must say I am getting a little worried about the old gal's memory......another glaring mistake on this pearls on the 2 little flowers in the bottom I know that you helped me out with the inky fingers.....and thanks everyone.....the shampoo works a treat....need to stock up......but does anyone have a solution for my bad memory......
Well off to the forest with "The Budster" for our hour long lunchtime ramble.....I tell you folks nothing in the world destresses me better than this....sheer bliss and then back on the crafting treadmill.....still the Craftwork Card samples to finish...but that's not a hardship....the stamps are a joy to work with and full of absolute deliciousness.   Catch up with you all tomorrow for sneaky peek Thursday.
Hugs Kath xxxxxxx

Wow, Kath super card as usual, know what you mean about the grey matter, I only took the dog for a walk yesterday, and forgot the house keys, had to wait 2 hours for Brian to get home for work, won't we doing that again, I felt so stupid.

Wow got a shock when I read your blog regarding Arty Girlz... like you haven't had much time of late to join in the fun but the thought of them disappearing is awful.

Well done you though on your final challenge card for them... it's awesome... so need to get my hands on some distress inks... keep meaning to & forgetting... does that ring a bell?
