MMSC68 PSDT Shady Rest

This is double the fun for me, here is a card I have made for the "priscillastyles" Design Team and I have played along using the  Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge - how much fun is that!?!?

I have used Priscilla's image 'Flowering Tree' and had so much fun colouring it.  I started with my Chalks but then went to my Prismacolour Pencils and they made all of the difference to the depth of colour - I am loving those Prisma's!!  Only one problem with them - I wasn't looking what I was doing and nearly drank the Odourless Mineral Spirits by mistake - true!!  I had it to my lips and then realised - skeery!!

I have also made this for a number of the challenges over at the Crafter's Digital Art Centre - for Colour Challenge, Corners and Distressing - I am on a roll!!  LOL!  How do you like this corner embellishment - I picked them up at KMART one day on sale - something like 50 cents for 8of them - laughing!!  The Martha Stewart Fence Punch just had to be used on this card - how could it not!!

Distressing - I L-O-V-E to distress, cards that is!  LOL!  This photo shows the dimension that is happening here!

Thank you for looking and for the lovely comments you leave me - you make blogging such a fun place to be - I am so honoured to be part of the "priscillastyles" Design Team and hope to bring you lots of inspiration using Priscilla's creative images. 

This is for the following challenges:
Aud Sentiments Challenge - Anything Goes
Practical Scrappers - Lace Cardstock - Lacy Punched Leaf Edge
Cowgirl's Sunday Stampen Challenge - Summer Time Feeling 
Crafts and Me Challenge - Petals & Pearls
Stampin' for the Weekend - Anything Goes

It is Saturday morning for me and it is deceptively sunny through the window - if we walk out the front of the house, there is now on our beautiful mountain - The Brindabella's - they are breathtaking!! Amazingly enough, as I am typing this post we have had a phone call and my DH, DS and DD! are up in the air in a helicopter now - our neighbour is a pilot and was doing a test flight - so he got to take some passengers - how cool!!  I hope you have a great weekend and get to do some things you enjoy - and maybe even some crafting!!  God bless you!


  1. You certainly scored on those corner pieces, very pretty card. Sure hope the 'test' went ok and arrived home safe and sound, LOL,

  2. I so love this card, Linda! Love your pretty coloring, and the added picket fence punch is just the perfect touch with this tree!! that corner embellie is sooo pretty too!! Hugs!!!!!

  3. Now Linda-how come when I go into KMART they don't have any cool scrapbooking stuff like you have??? I guess that is why our KMART is doing so hot!!! lol Your card is gorgeous. You did such a beautiful job with this "priscillastyles" image. I love the colors and distress inking. Really so exquisite from one corner to the next.

    Bear Hugs,

  4. Beautiful, beautiful creation Linda !! It feels "disrespectful" to merely call it a card :D Thank you for joining us again at Cowgirls Sunday Challenge XXX

  5. Wowzer Linda! This is just too gorgeous for words! But, you know me...never at a loss so I must say I love your color combo, the distressing and the paper piercing! Glad you didn't have to call the paramedics, OMS could be hazardous to your health! And, I so love the little adornment in the bottom left-hand corner, wish I had a K-Mart here - I've been looking for these for ages!
    Hugs, Marsha

    greetings karin

  7. Now, Linda, I can think of a lot better things to drink than mineral spirits if you catch my drift. Better get those eyes checked!! Oooh, I love how you used Priscilla's beautiful tree image. I LOVE trees. Your colors, fence punch and that awesome corner piece are YUMMO, or YUMBLY as you say!!

    P.S. How is it being the only fave on the team now???? I bet you are basking in your glory.

    pam, Da Princess

  8. Beautiful done, Linda! How perfect is this... Love the gorgeous metal embellishment and wonderful design, colors, and coloring. Well of course, I love everything about this. Outstanding!

  9. This is beautiful Linda! Love the piercing you have going. I thought I might steel that idea, but it would be to obvious since I had the same image to work with *LOL*
    Love the fence! Very cool!

  19. Linda, I love this card, your colors are just perfect. I adore earth tones and what better way to show case a tree, especially one you have made so beautiful! All of your special touches are what makes this so gorgeous, the paper piercing, your fence, the twine and distressing not to mention the beautiful corner embellishment. Quite a piece of art!
