Another Freaking Scrappy, Cardabilities & Off the Rails.....

See, I wasn't going to do ANY more challenges this month...but then I saw Anne P's Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge was not only back, but they had the most SUPERLATIVE sketch. So naturally I had to play!!
Then I got my first lot of 3rd Eye goodies ever...including a Brick template [I've always wanted one of those!]....so I thought I'd use it:):)
OK, cards first. These are made with the same background.

The sketch:
Goodies include stuff from Charm's Creations [the spotty flower], Flying Unicorn [musk flower], Dusty Attic [leaves] & the doily years ago from Chantelle H!
Yup, for all you card makers, this is their 1st one EVER....using this colour palette & sketch:
And here's my card:
Yep, using my local feathers again...I really enjoy making them into bouquets!! And I really like the effect of die cut & dry embossed vellum, too. It allows the bricks to errr 'shine through'!!!
Finally, another sketch over at 
Like I said, I really, REALLY ♥♥♥ this sketch. I have a heap of Stampin' Up papers - for some reason I find them difficult to use....but by hook or by crook....so here's the result: 


And here's a list of those peeps/places I am so thankful to!!!
hope you have fun checking out some other blogs if you haven't seen them around before:)
Thanks for looking & Happy Scrapping ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
PS: if anyone mentions BIRD SPLATS when they see that ink...well, my mind has already been there - LOL:):):)
