Yes, my life is in transition. I am now getting used to life as a widow. What will this bring? Time will tell.

The Girls

Girls rule today at H20 Creations

Our first girl to rule is Mel of Melztamps. Mel is
being featured every Friday in February at Squigglefly.
You can see all of Squigglefly's wonderful digi stamps here.
Mel is bringing us her lovely card using Squigglefly's Baby Bathing digi stamp.
It is a wonderful card with lots of detail. Follow Mel's link to find
out how she made this amazing card.

Now, on to more girls.

Tim Holtz
Say It In Sepia

I used the digi stamp 'Lady' that is a Freebie from Cuddly Buddly.
I've had this quite awhile just waiting for the right project.
This was the first time I've ever watercolored with Distress Inks from
Tim Holtz. It wasn't really hard to do but I did have problems blending.
But, overall I like how it turned out. I used these Distress Inks:
Antique Linen, Tea Dye, Vintage Photo and just a touch of Soot Black.

Our next girl is an expert swimmer.
using the image 'Lil Mermaid' from
This group is a membership only group of 50 crafters and
50 artists. The artists give us free digi stamps and we use as many as
we want. There is a monthly voting on the cards for a $$$ prize.
I'll be telling you where and when the voting begins.

For this card I started with a blue card stock base. I glued crumpled blue
tissue paper to the base card. I then made a few waves with glittery
blue sprinkles. Lil Mermaid is colored, mostly, with glitter gel pens.
I placed her on the scroll, think wave, with a pop dot. The sparkly gem
is one of those flat marbles that go in flower vases.

My last girl is a flower girl image provided by
There are always 2 digis available for each challenge.
I chose the sweet flower girl with her paint box.

I colored with Copics, cut out and adhered with pop dots to a matching
background panel. I added a flower and leaf and put all of this on
a gold card base.

Robyns Fetish Challenges is having a DT call.
Follow the link for all of the details.
Robyn also has a Forum that is open to all.

I hope you enjoyed your visit with 'the Girls'.

Gosh your stash must be huge, to find just the right flower for that last card. I think that is my most fabbiest one. I love the Tim Holtz sepia bust too. Oh, go on, the middle one is really cool too (get it? well blue is a cool colour). Hahaha, listen to me ramble on.
