Reminder: Time Out Challenge # 79

Hi there everyone! This is my second card this week, so glad to finally be feeling well enough to craft again. Especially since I thought about card making 24/7!! This post is to remind you all about our current challenge at TIME OUT. 





We are asking you to 'CASE' a card for this challenge. Above is the card to inspire you all by the amazing Jenny of Crafting in the Country. She created this fabulous card to inspire you all and already there are some fantastic cards in the Gallery inspired by this design.

We are also very lucky to have a Sponsor for this challenge, Verve Stamps!! They were very generous to give the TIME OUT DT a stamp set each (which was extra exciting for me as I didn't have any of their products) and will also give a stamp set to the winner of this challenge. Woo hoo!!




I was very lucky to get my hands on the 'New Beginnings' stamp set which has some fantastic floral images and sentiments for Spring. I really liked Jenny's card layout so based my card on that idea:



I started off my creating a panel of white CS slightly smaller than my card front and blending 'Salty Ocean' Distress Ink over it. I then lightly splattered some water on to it and dabbed with a tissue to remove the colour. After working out where the flowers would sit, I stamped the flower stems with green ink. I also stamped the flowers on some white CS, coloured with pencils and fussy cut out. 

A panel of kraft CS was adhered to the card front, and then the coloured panel on some foam tape. Instead of having something going across the top of the card (like the branch) I decided to have it going down the side. I die-cut this CAS-ual Fridays Stamps 'Lovely Links' die from some wood veneer and glued to the card front. 

Two of the flowers were popped up on foam tape while the other was glued to the veneer. The sentiment was stamped on a strip of white CS, popped on foam tape and I added some sequins from Neat and Tangled.

You have until Wednesday 29th March to link your projects to the TIME OUT challenge. And if you need any help with ideas, pop over to the blog to see what the rest of the Design Team and our fabulous Guest Designer Izzy have created for you.

Take care

Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge # 234

Hi there everybody!! It's an exciting day for me because after having the flu for the past two weeks I finally felt well enough to make a card. And it was so glorious to be back in the saddle again!! My card is for the Addicted to Stamps and More  challenge where the theme for this week is:




For a 'Clean and Simple' project we are looking for designs with minimal layers, embellishments and images. A lot of white space is fantastic and one-layer cards are a brilliant example.
 
I was very lucky to recently get my hands on some new Waffle Flower stamps. I was part of a monthly challenge team last year for Waffle Flower and Nina gave us all a voucher at the end of our term. I forgot all about it will a few weeks ago and thank goodness it was still working!! They arrived last week and I couldn't wait to ink them up:




Isn't that little girl just the cutest?!! All of these images are from Waffle Flower 'Enveloper Hello'. I'm just in love with the design of all the images (by artist Helen Dardik) and you can expect to see them used a lot on my cards! This was going to be a one-layer design but I realised that I could still get a bit of dimension and keep it CAS.

To start with I stamped the images on white CS and fussy cut them all out. After working out where they would sit on the card front, I used Distress Inks 'Salty Ocean', 'Picked Raspberry' and 'Fossilized Amber' and my mini-blending tool to add patches of soft colour. The images were then all popped up on foam tape and I added some sequins from Neat and Tangled for a bit of extra shine.

You have until next Wednesday 29th March to link your projects to the Addicted to Stamps and More challenge. And if you need any idea's for a CAS design, pop over to the blog to see what the rest of the Design Team have created to inspire you. Can't wait to see what you come up with in the Gallery!!

Take care

Calling All Sistah's Blog hop - March

Hi there everyone and welcome to the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Calling All Sistah's Blog Hop for the month of March!!





This blog hop was started as a way of reminding us all to do our self breast checks every month, as it can make such a difference to finding any problems early on.  If its something you've never done before, I have a link here from You Tube showing you what you need to do and look for. 

As this is a blog hop you should have arrived here from Ceals' blog where I'm sure she wowed you with her amazing project. If you've gotten lost or would like to start at the beginning of the hop, pop over to the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps blog for the full hop list.

Unfortunately I've been very sick with the flu the past two weeks and don't seem to be able to shake it. I haven't made a card for so long and wasn't able to make one for this hop but I didn't want to break the 'hop chain' and let people down. I also like to be able to spread the word about self-breast checks as much as I can and I promise I will have a new card for next month!

So you have something to look at I decided to show you one of my favourite 'hop' cards from last year, from the November 2016 hop:


One of the only times I've used patterned paper in months!! Please pop over to my blog post for details on how I put this card together!

Your next stop on the hop is the incredible Lori who will have something amazing to show you I'm sure!!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you can grab a coffee, hop along and then take a few moments to check those breasts. You will never regret it!

Take care

Reminder: Time Out Challenge # 78

Hi there! Another apology from me in this blog post being late. This should have gone out last Thursday 9th March but I've been too sick with the flu to get it organised, so I'm very sorry about that.






This has been a very exciting challenge for us at TIME OUT as we are celebrating our 3rd birthday!! The time has gone by so quickly and we have grown so much over this time, with our popularity and our team size. Thank you to everyone that has joined and supported the challenge over the years and here's to many more!!

We have lots of exciting things for you to win with this challenge too, so make sure you check out the TIME OUT blog for all the details.

The challenge theme is:

Love and/or Friendship with the optional twist of 'spotlight stamping' where you add colour only to one raised area of your image

This is quite a popular technique and one I quite enjoy to do myself. And I must say that the Gallery is bursting with so many incredible examples of this!!

For my card, things didn't quite go to plan but I managed to keep it together and create a simple card for a friend:



I started off by stamping the My Favourite Things 'Bundles of Blossoms' background stamp in black ink on a panel of white CS. I then used the large circular tag die from Winnie and Walter 'Essentials: Carlys Cutaways', snipping off the tag part at the top. I was then able to die-cut the W&W 'In a Word: Friend' die from the middle of it. My idea then was to colour the die-cut word portion with pencils but I managed to drop all the pencils on it, lead side down, from the pencils case and it was ruined!

So, I cut a piece of white CS and glued it behind the circle. I die-cut 'friend' twice from white CS and once from a pink paint chip, glued them together and then inlaid into the circle. The circle was then popped up on lots of foam tape. The rest of the sentiment (from W&W 'The Big, the Bold and Happy') was simply stamped on a strip of white CS, put on foam tape and I glued on a few pink and clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

You still have just under two days to link your projects to the TIME OUT challenge and if you need any ideas with the 'spotlight colouring' technique, pop over to the blog to see what the rest of the Design Team and our amazing Guest Designer Ardyth have created for you.

Take care

Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge # 232

Hi there everybody!! I'm so sorry this blog post is very late, I developed the flu last Tuesday night and it completely knocked me for a six! I'm slowly getting better and can now look at the computer screen without it hurting my eyes!







For the past week at Addicted to Stamps and More the challenge theme is the very popular 'Make your Mark'. Which means you need to create a project where you have done some sort of colouring yourself. Maybe with Distress Inks, Copics or some water colouring....its totally up to you. And the Gallery is already full of some gorgeous creations!!

For my card I wanted to include some items I had coloured for The Daily Marker '30 Day Colouring Challenge':





I just love these images!! I don't own this stamp set but was very lucky to have my friend Michelle (of Craftcradle), send some stamped images to me so I could colour them in. I coloured them all with pencils and fussy cut out. I held a piece of scrap paper over the card front so I could blend Mama Elephant 'Mojito' ink to create a small hill. I then blended some Distress Ink 'Salty Ocean' for a sky background. The images were simply adhered in place, with the teddy on some foam tape. And I then stamped the sentiment along with adding some sequins.

The stamp images are from Neat and Tangled 'Better Together' and the sentiment also from N&T 'Big Bold Brew'. The sequins are all from N&T as well!!

You still have around 13 hours left to link your projects to the Addicted to Stamps and More challenge. And you really should pop over to the blog to see what the rest of the Design Team created for you, their projects are fantastic!

Take care

Winnie and Walter - 3rd Birthday Bash - Ink Smooshing with Heather H.

I'm back with my 5th and final entry for the Winnie and Walter - 3rd Birthday Bash!  Thank goodness my cards are all done as I can feel myself becoming sick with the flu/cold that Phoebe, Dave and Max have had over the last three weeks. I haven't been sick ages, so looks like its now my turn. Oh goodie!!




For this card I am entering the Ink Smooshing Challenge with Heather H. I really enjoy this technique because its totally uncontrolled and different every single time. Nice to make a mess instead of keeping everything clean and tidy!!
 

I cut a panel of water colour CS and using Distress Ink 'Mermaid Lagoon', water and my ink block, I smooshed the colour over it a few times. Once it had dried I used the medium circle die from W&W 'Essentials: Carly Cutaways' to cut out a portion of it. I also decided to die-cut the bottom of the card with a stitched-curved die (from Pretty Pink Posh) just for a bit of a change and it went with the curve of the circle.

On a piece of water colour CS I stamped and heat embossed the flowers and leaves (from W&W 'In Bloom: Addies Garden') in white. I then used Real Color Zig Brush Markers to colour them in, along with a water brush. Once they were dry I fussy cut them out. The circle panel was popped up on foam tape on the card front and the flowers/leaves adhered with double-sided tape and foam tape. The sentiment was simply stamped in black (from W&W 'Happiest of Holidays with Evelin T Designs') and glued on with some blue/clear sequins from Neat and Tangled.

I'm going to link this to the Winnie and Walter - 3rd Birthday Bash - Three Challenge with Shay as I used three colours - grey, green and blue. And I also had a card base with three straight sides and one curved.

And I will also link to the Winnie and Walter - 3rd Birthday Bash - Mood Board Challenge with Heather P. 


I wanted to join a couple of other challenges. One being The Card Concept Challenge # 68 where their inspiration photo is:


And will also join the Stamplorations CAS March Challenge where their inspiration this month is:




Thank you so much for getting through all my W&W entries and I hope you enjoyed them all. I feel absolutely dreadful now so will go back to the couch and hope someone will look after me.......yeah right!!

Winnie and Walter - 3rd Birthday Bash - Sequin Challenge with Kate

Its a very dreary morning, supposed to rain today so if it does, maybe I can make a few more cards......fingers crossed!! I'm popping in with my 4th entry for the Winnie and Walter - 3rd Birthday Bash. This time its the Sequins Challenge with Kate. 




My first thought was to make a shaker card because you know I love a good shaker!! But I really wanted to try and create a background with sequins instead, which of course is even more fiddly:





I'm sure there is a much easier way to create the sequin background but of course I had to make it as hard and fiddly as possible!!

To start off I wanted to create a background with the box image from W&W 'Welcome to the Family with Evelin T Designs' by just stamping it by hand across a panel of white CS. As the image doesn't have straight edges it didn't stamp perfectly in a line but I didn't mind. I then die-cut the W&W 'Baby' from it. 

Now the fiddly part. I used a pencil to outline the baby die-cut on the card front and arranged the sequins over it, constantly checking I had the right coverage by putting the die-cut over it. Once I was happy I made more pencil lines around the sequins and also took a photo with my mobile phone. I took the sequins off, rubbed off the 'baby' pencil marks and put on strips of double-sided tape. Using the photo as a guide, I stuck the sequins on. 

The panel was put over the card with lots of foam tape. The 'hello' (from The Big, the Bold and Happy') was put on foam tape as well and I also adhered a pencil coloured elephant from the W&W 'Welcome to the Family with Evelin T Designs' stamp set. So happy with how it turned out!!

I'm also going to link this to the Winnie and Walter - 3rd Birthday Bash - Pattern Making Challenge with Mayuri.

And will also link to the Winnie and Walter - 3rd Birthday Bash - Cute Critter Challenge with Gayatri.

For a non-W&W challenge I'm going to link to the Simon Says Stamp - Monday Challenge where their theme is 'Make your own Background'.


I've got one card left to photograph and link. And Max is home sick again today (and its now raining) so might get a chance to whip up a few more ideas floating around in my head. As well as do some bottle and marker flipping!!

Take care

Winnie and Walter - 3rd Birthday Bash - Mood Board Challenge with Heather P

I'm back!! Thought I would link one more before I pop into bed and catch up on what you've all been doing on Instagram and YouTube!!

This time I'm entering the Winnie and Walter - 3rd Birthday Bash - Mood Board Challenge with Heather P. Heather always puts together the most amazing colour combo's and mood boards together, so I always look forward to her challenges!!





 As you can see, this mood board has so many amazing photos and colours to choose from. The first thing that caught my eye was the black and white butterfly and the black/white strip along the bottom. I decided to create a floral panel but with black and white only:


I had no plan when I started creating this panel, other than the fact I wanted it to radiate out from the middle and contain some solid black images. I also wanted the images to be as close together as possible. 

All of these images are from W&W 'In Bloom: Lola's Bouquet with Joni Andaya'. I started with the large flower in the middle and then added three images at a time around it, turning the panel as I went. Once the panel was full of larger images, I filled in any holes with tiny images and added the detail stamps to the flowers. Once I was happy I die-cut the panel using the large die from W&W 'Essentials: Audrey Cutaways'. 

I decided to add in one other colour (apart from black and white) and thought pink would go with this beautifully. I added a panel of deep pink CS to the card front and put the floral panel on foam tape. The sentiment (from W&W 'The Big, the Bold and Happy') was stamped twice with Hero Arts Shadow Ink 'Bubblegum' and fussy cut out. The 'hugs' was put on foam tape, while the rest of the sentiment was glued to the panel, along with pink and clear sequins from Neat and Tangled.

I'm also going to link this to the Winnie and Walter - 3rd Birthday Bash - Pattern Making Challenge with Mayuri.

Will also link to the Simon Says Stamp - Monday Challenge where their theme is 'Make Your own Background'.

 

Right, off to bed I go!! Will link another card in the morning before work and then one after work, with a few hours spare.....

Take care

Winnie and Walter 3rd Birthday Bash - Bright Colours Challenge with Lydia

Hi there, I'm back again with my second Winnie and Walter '3rd Birthday Bash' entry. This time its for the Bright Colours Challenge with Lydia.




For the past week I seem to have made so many rainbow coloured cards. I thought that nothing beats a bright rainbow mix of colours, so why not make my final rainbow of the week:


I've become rather obsessed with the 'block' stamp image from the W&W 'Welcome to the Family with Evelin T Designs' stamp set. I can see it in my mind being used for so many different patterns (as you will see on one of my other entries...). For this one I kept imaging brightly coloured building blocks with a white fluffy bear sitting on his own.

I used six different Distress Inks and my mini-blending tool to colour a panel of white CS. I then stamped the block image on to each one and fussy cut it out, removing the top part of the stamp image. I gave them all a quick flick with water and soaked the droplets up with a tissue to add a bit of interest. The blocks were then put on foam tape, with any overhang being trimmed off.

I heat embossed the sentiment (from the same stamp set) in Rose Gold on a piece of vellum and adhered to the blocks by putting double-sided tape behind the words. The bear (which had been stamped on white CS and fussy cut) was put on foam tape and I glued on a few co-ordinating sequins from Neat and Tangled.

I'm also going to link this to the W&W 3rd Birthday Bash - Ink Blending Challenge with Vanessa.

And will also link to the W&W 3rd Birthday Bash - Cute Critters Challenge with Gayatri.

I've got one more entry to link before I got to bed and will link the rest tomorrow so you get a bit of a break!!

Take care

Winnie and Walter - 3rd Birthday Bash - Cute Critter Challenge with Gayatri

21 hours.......that's all the time I have left to get my entries in to the Winnie and Walter - 3rd Birthday Bash - Cute Critter Challenge with Gayatri. Why oh why do I always seem to be creating at the last possible moment??!!



I've been a fan of Winnie and Walter products for nearly 3 years and I'm so excited to finally be sharing in their birthday fun!! All of my card ideas have been swirling around in my head for weeks but I wanted to wait for my newest W&W products turned up first before I dove straight in with creating.

As I mentioned this first challenge is all about 'cute critters' and their latest stamp release has the cutest stamp set 'Welcome to the Family with Evelin T Designs'. I've fallen in love with it, which is strange because I never make baby cards. I've always found them really hard to make but obviously I needed the perfect stamp set.....:
 

Told you the images were adorable!!! I really wanted these critters to be the stars of the card, so kept everything else clean.

I cut a panel of white CS and die-cut the small circle die from W&W 'Essentials: Carly Cutaways' twice from it. I worked out where the circles would sit over the card front and gently blended Distress Ink 'Picked Raspberry' so it would create a background for the animals. The animal images were stamped on white CS, coloured with pencils and fussy cut out.

I popped the panel up on foam tape and also added foam tape behind both of the critters. The sentiment (from the same stamp set) was simply stamped with black in, fussy cut out and put on foam tape as well. And I added some clear and pink sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

As you can imagine I have a few other cards to enter and will try to space them out over the next 21 hours so not to overload you. But really, can you ever have enough W&W to look at??!!

CAS-ual Fridays Stamps - Girl Friday post - March

Hello there!! Thanks for stopping by and seeing what I've created this month as a CAS-ual Fridays Stamps 'Girl Friday'!!







My Mum and I were talking about birthday's recently and I thought I could create a card for her to give to one of her friends, who has a similar humor. I always think its great to be able to laugh at yourself, sometimes I do the most ridiculous things I need to laugh or I would cry!!

I have been in a 'rainbow colour-wave' this week for some reason and I thought bright colours would lend themselves quite well to this sentiment:



Another one of my 'fiddly' designs but it made me realise that I need to add a particular glue to my repertoire....

I started off by die-cutting the Tic Tac Toe Fri-Die from some white CS. I really needed some of that glue where you can remove it afterwards but I didn't have any. So I grabbed some small fully-sticky post-it pads that had been sent to me by a friend overseas and used a few of them to mask off each square, which also held the die in place. That way I could use a sponge dauber and a myriad of Distress Inks to colour each square.

Once I was happy with my rainbow, I die-cut the Tic Tac Toe Fri-Die again from black CS and glued into place. I used the smallest circle die from the Ornament Tag Fri-Dies on some white CS, heat embossed the sentiment from 'Frankly'isms' in Rose Gold and popped it up on foam tape. All I had to do then was to add some colourful sequins from Neat and Tangled.





I'm going to link this to the Seize the Birthday Challenge where their theme is:

 

If you think you would like to purchase any of the products I used today or any other CAS-ual Fridays Stamps products, don't forget to use my special Girl Friday code to save yourself some money!!




Thanks so much for popping in and I will see you all next month on the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps blog.

Take care

The Flower Challenge - March

Hi there and welcome to The Flower Challenge for the month of March!! We have everyone's favourite theme this month:






This means the possibilities are endless with your creation. As long as you have something 'floral' as your main subject, you can make whatever you like!!

I was in a water colouring mood when I needed to make my card and I also wanted to use a background stamp that hadn't seen any ink yet. What a perfect pairing they were:

 


I used my MISTI to stamp the background stamp twice with Versafine black ink on water colour CS, and then heat emboss with clear embossing powder. I then grabbed a Kuretake Real Color Zig Brush marker in 'Light Violet', another small brush (with a bowl of water) and put the programme 'Suits' on the tv so I could settle in and colour away!!

Once I had finished and dried with my heat gun, I used a waffle-edged die to cut out the panel. I cut a panel of black CS, adhered it to the card front and then popped the panel up on foam tape. The 'love' die was die-cut 3x from black CS, glued together for dimension and then to the card. I also heat embossed the rest of the sentiment in white and glued this, along with some co-ordinating sequins to the card front.

The background stamp is from My Favourite Things 'Floral Fantasy'. The 'love' die is from Paper Smooches, the 'sending' sentiment is from Waffle Flower 'Balloon Messages' and the sequins from Neat and Tangled. The panel die is from Winnie and Walter 'Essentials: Audrey's Cutaways'.

You have until Saturday 25th March to link your projects to The Flower Challenge and we will be back with some reminder cards on the 15th March. If you are needing some help with inspiration, pop over to the blog to see what the rest of the Design Team have created for you. I can't wait to see your projects in the Gallery!!

Take care

Little Tangles Challenge # 78

Hi there everybody and welcome to the Little Tangles challenge for March!! We have a fantastic, colourful theme for you this month:

You can't beat rainbow colours on a card design and for all of you on the otherside of the world where its freezing cold, hopefully all these rainbows will brighten your day!!

I decided that my Ziggies needed more love and I wanted to try and create the brightest rainbow ever. I wasn't disappointed:


I should have put a warning at the beginning of the post to say you may need glasses to view this creation!!

I began by cutting a panel of water colour CS. I've been watching a lot of videos by Kristina Werner lately on water colouring. She gives so many amazing tips and tricks to getting a result you like. This rainbow would never have happened if not for her!!

I basically used a big brush to do a brushstroke of water across the panel, added the colour straight from the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Marker across the panel and then used a smaller brush and water to spread it out. I then used the bigger brush to put a stroke of water underneath and off I went again. This way I was able to get some blending between the colours but also control the strength of the colour. I hope this makes sense!!

I cut the panel down to size and then die-cut the Heart of Gold die from the middle of it. I also die-cut the heart again from some white CS. I glued a piece of acetate across the back which gave me somewhere to inlay the white heart against. The panel was then popped up on foam tape. I stamped the sentiment from Big Bold Brew twice in black Versafine Ink and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder to give it some shine. I just cut it out and put it on foam tape. No sequins needed for this bright number!!




I'm going to link this to the AAA Card Challenge # 84 where their theme is:


You have until Saturday 25th March to link your projects to the Little Tangles  challenge. And pop over to the blog to see what the rest of the Design Team have created to inspire you. Their projects are gorgeous!! Can't wait to see what you come up with in the Gallery!

Just Add Ink Challenge # 349

Hi there everyone!! Hope you've been having a fantastic week and your ready for a new challenge theme at Just Add Ink!! We have a fun and colourful photo to inspire you this week:







This is so pretty and delicious looking. I would have loved something like this when I was a little girl (actually to be honest I would still love this now!!). You can be inspired by the colours, the food, the balloons....basically anything from this photo!


I couldn't get away from using those rainbow colours and set myself a ridiculous stamping task which was worth it when finished:

  
I wanted to try and recreate the macaroon shape and managed to find this oval stamp from Altenew 'Simple Shapes'. Using my MISTI and Waffle Flower dye inks, I stamped each oval twice (to get a bright colour) across a panel of white CS. It took a very long time but I managed to catch up on some tv while doing it (American Crime and Madam Secretary).

Once I had finished I used my new Winnie and Walter 'Essentials: Audrey Cutaways' smaller panel die. I stamped the sentiments (from Altenew 'Celebrate') twice with black Versafine Ink and clear heat embossed for some shine. The panel was then popped up on foam tape and I glued on some co-ordinating sequins from Neat and Tangled.

You have until next Wednesday 8th March to link your projects to the Just Add Ink challenge. And if you need any inspiration, pop over to the blog to see what the rest of the Design Team have created for you. Looking forward to seeing all the rainbows of colour in the Gallery!!

Take care

Happy Little Stampers - Watercolour Challenge - March

Hi there everybody and welcome to the Happy Little Stampers - Watercolour Challenge for March!! Thank you to everyone who entered in February, there were so many amazing cards, it made it very hard to choose my Top 5!!






This month we still have the 'Anything Goes' theme but we also have an 'optional twist' of 'Smooshing'. Just in case you haven't coming across 'smooshing' before, its a technique where you add water colour to acetate, an acrylic block or something where you can then push it down on to your paper. Its so much fun and looks different every single time you do it!

And if making a pretty mess sounds like a good idea, how about the chance of winning a $15 Happy Little Stampers voucher!!





I hadn't 'smooshed' for a while so couldn't wait to get a bit 'uncontrolled' with my water colours:


This was incredibly simple to put together, just a bit fiddly, which you know I like!!

I mixed Distress Inks - 'Picked Raspberry', 'Mermaid Lagoon', 'Spiced Marmalade', 'Mustard Seed' and 'Wilted Violet' with water on my acrylic block and 'smooshed' them (each separately) on to a panel of water colour CS. Once it was dry I adhered the panel to the card front. I die-cut the Neat and Tangled 'Big Hugs' die from gold CS and twice more from white CS, glued them all together and then popped up on teeny, tiny bits of foam tape. And to finish off I glued on some co-ordinating sequins, also from Neat and Tangled. And that was it!!

I'm going to link this to the Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge where their theme is 'Anything Goes'.



And will also link to the AAA Card Challenge # 84 where their theme is:




You have the whole month of March to enter the Happy Little Stampers - Watercolour Challenge which means you may have time to enter more than once! And if you need any help with ideas, pop over to the blog to see what the rest of the Design Team have created for you. Can't wait to see all your 'smooshed' creations in the Gallery!!

Take care
