Question: Art Journal or not??

Hi my lovely followers and friends...

I have a question, I was thrilled how you all answered my previous question if it mattered to you if you received a prize or not in a challenge,which in turn gave me the courage to get back on the horse so to speak...
Now that I am feeling much better and seem to have that dreaded cancer in check, (not taking my eyes or you again, though), I am tempted to step out and do some more radical things....

So here is the question or should I say questions

Would you be interested in trying something out with me? I mean I have been watching and am intrigued by some of the beautiful art journal around in blog land and really want to give it a go...

Let me know in the leave a comment box, and a big thank you in advance for answering...

Happy for you to say, no , not interested or yes I would like to give it a go, and sure I aready do it anyway...

I would like to set it up very similar to WOYWW, which stands for whats on your work desk Wednesday, the blogs name is Stamping ground.
I will need to work out what day to post it, and need to see if we should forget about it, do it weekly or fortnightly

Any advice is much appreciated...if you need to give me a long talking to you can email me, check out the top tab...

Here are some samples I found on Pinterest:

This is sort of what I am skills required.
Thanks and many Blessings Hilde

#43 Card Challenge : Something Magical

How everyone, wow, this last challenge was not your favorite was it?? Oh dear... maybe this one will stir those creative juices!! Note to self, don't ever ask for underwater scenes

From now on every month one of our wonderful and awesomely fantastic Design Team will choose a subject, and today it's Susan's turn....if you are not sure who she is, ( who does not know her??? really??) she is also head chef of the Unstampabelles here. and check our her personal blog here.
She is an awesome chick, and she chose:

Something Magical

This does not mean witches and the like, they would be deleted ( please refer to our rules), but this is in the true meaning of something magical, as Susan wrote: such as

...........faeries, angels, unicorns, beautiful sunsets/sunrises, actual magical things, birth, weddings etc.
And we would also like you to add what the magical part is to you.

Here is what the team has designed:

 This gorgeous creation is from Susan

Guest Designers:

And here are our first official Guest Designer since our return....please welcome and meet these wonderfully gorgeous and very talented ladies. 

Our first Guest is Tammy
I have been crafting all my life, which was started with a mini knitting kit from my nan for Christmas when I was 5.  It was 10 years ago that I seriously got into it all  and started out making jewelry, this later developed to all things paper based! I love making cards, scrap booking and I have just starting to learn quilling, which I am equally enjoying.  ..... Let me know if it needs changing.  Thanks again, and have a lovely weekend 

A very beautiful and magical creation, and thanks for being our Guest Designer for this challenge

Introducing Helen, our second Guest Designer ( oh this is so much fun)

My name is Helen and I live in a small town called West Kirby in the north west of England.  I work charity called Abbeyfield which provides residential care for older people - I'm an Activities Coordinator.  I also teach weekend card making and stamping workshops for Little Claire.  I've been making cards for many years and ma lucky enough to design for several companies as well as a range of challenge blogs.

How gorgeous an magical is this lovely card and image? Thanks Helen.
