Rather Blustery Day

 Hi!  Time for another challenge at The Funkie Junkie Boutique Challenge blog.  This time I am hosting and I am inspired by our windy spring weather and have called it "Rather blustery day".  Don't panic it isn't about the weather. :)  The challenge is: 

"I am inspired by Pooh Bear's quote from A A Milne of "It's a rather blustery day."   Pooh Bear struggled against the windy day and you can share something you struggle with in your art!  It can be a technique, color palette, tools, or supplies that you find difficult to use.  Share them with us along with your story on what you struggle with!  I can't wait to see your blustery day!"

So bring on your difficult techniques or things that challenge you!  I am afraid of white space. :)  Being a grungy, shabby, and collage inspired artist that white space or negative space is very hard for me. 

It takes me 4 or 5 times to get a simple card done.  When it has to be clean and neat I always have a smudge or cut that causes me to redo it.

I thought I would highlight the wildflower die cuts as the focal point with a soft quiet background.

I also had the new embossing folder with the doily and love the texture it provided behind my simple bouquet. 

I hope this has you inspired to come show what you struggle with in your crafting.  The overall winner will be offered the chance to be a Guest Designer at a future date at The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog, and everyone who enters and follows the rules will go into the drawing for the chance to win a $25.00 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. There are also Top 3 Badges for three additional outstanding entries, chosen by the Design Team.

Thanks for stopping by!




  1. You conquered CAS! I love these cards. =)

  2. Perfect! You should not be challenged ever again by white space, as you have nailed CAS! Love that yellow flower and both your backgrounds speak volumes without all the fuss! As always, I am inspired by your artistry!

  3. Those cards are fantastic! I totally get the challenge of white space. If there is space to spare it is hard not to fill it up with something crafty. These cards are so pretty and elegant!
