one more...

One more for today...I was sooo taken back by the entries for this week's CAS challenge! There were so many unusual color combos! Then I noticed the challenge over at CAS-ual Friday was to use opposite colors on the color wheel! No wonder! SO I had to get busy and make another one...and I love this week's sketch so here is another for CAS166 and one for CFC48.

I pulled out all my still wood mounted SU stamps and while trying to organize them, I figured I'd play! I just loved the flowers in these 2 sets and they go together so well!

stamps- SU fifth ave floral, embrace life, PTI- signature greetings
paper- PTI white, pure poppy, hawaiian shores, aqua mist
ink- versafine black
accessories- ribbon, stickles

CAS166 Sketch Challenge!

This is for the Clean and Simple challenge on SCS this week...a fabulous sketch from our own Mary! I LOVE this sketch, so simple and so versatile!

My first is just 2 flowers stacked up with some felt and a button. I made a bunch of these and have them in a baggie for when I need a quickie embellishment!

This next one is a special one for my niece! She is having a Mickey and Minnie birthday party this year! So fun! This was a die I picked up in the clearance bin at Michaels from Cuttlebug. I cut the bow by hand.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week!

CFC46 Name that Tune!

Hi everyone! I am still trying to organize my craft space but while I do I have been trying to get back to doing at least one challenge a day! Today, I am finally getting around to the CAS-ual Friday challenge (just squeaking it in!)...To be inspired by a song CFC46! I was inspired by "Born to Be Wild," by Steppenwolf....The most perfect Motorcycle riding song! Yea...that is totally the song I have in my head while riding on the back of my Hubby's Harley! LOL

Thanks for stopping by and RIDE ON!

CAS164 Spotlighting!

This is for the Clean and Simple Challenge this week on SCS. This week's challenge is a technique challenge...SPOTLIGHTING! One of my favorites! This first one is a real CAS, lots of white space and the spotlighting in a circle in the center. I added some stickles for a little shine.

This one may be a stretch on CAS a bit because of the busy background but it's still the one stamp. I also made the card smaller by a 1/2 inch widthwise so the sentiment strip would still fit in the envelope! I also made the spotlighting part a heart shape just to change it up a bit.

Thanks for stopping by!
