Working too much and watching too much playoff hockey (Let's Go Pens!!)!! So here's my card using the newly released Imagine That Digistamp set Giraffe With Butterflies. I also used the Sassy Frassy digi papers (I do love Kris's line of digi papers! Did you see all the new animal print packs? Gorgeous!!). I kept this card fairly simple and perfect for mailing.

Hello

 Check out this fun and fabulous sketch at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. I had a real fun time with this one and I know you will too!

Here's my card, using a Jennifer McGuire technique she called stacked die cutting. Check out her video HERE. I stenciled on the background using the Sketched Lines Stencil by Altenew. The sentiment (heat embossed) and die (cut out 3 times and covered in wink of stella) are an old set by Avery Elle. The flower is from a Simon Says Stamp die, like the sentiment and hello die, must be retired because I can't seem to find it. The flower and leaves are also covered in wink of stella...love the sparkle. A quick and easy, clean and simple, and easily mailed card is complete!! Now it's your turn to share your creation with us at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.

Challenges I'm submitting my card to include:
Aud Sentiments - Anything Goes + a sentiment
Southern Girls Challenge - Add sparkle
Fab 'n' Funky - Create a background
Simon Says Stamp - A bit of sparkle

Hello My Friend

Welcome to the CAS challenge at The Outlawz for this week. Our challenge hostess is from South Africa and they are in the midst of the fall season. The theme is to create a card using autumn colors - brown, green, orange, etc. I pulled out a Paper Trey Ink stamp set, Ombre Builders, that I have never used before -- YIKES!! That created the colorful background. The I die cut the  Scripty Hello from Lawn Fawn three times for some dimension. I then added a sentiment along with some embellishments like gold thread and sequins. I rarely add embellies so this was a stretch outside my comfort zone!! Sure hope you can join us for our autumn colors challenge over at The Outlawz.

BINGO

We're playing a little bingo this week over at Catch the Bug. Lots of fun combinations to pick from too!  

Here's my card (sparkle, stitching, sentiment), using from Bugaboo the adorable Sunbonnet Candy Cane (not yet in the new store). I colored her up with my copic markers then covered quite a bit with my wink of Stella glitter pen. I also used red glitter paper to make it extra sparkly! I cheated with the stitching, making use of two stitched dies. Now I can't wait to see what you create for our Bingo challenge this week over at Catch the Bug.

How Are You?

It's "Oldie But Goodie" Thursday at Catch the Bug. That's where we pick an older Bugaboo image, one that you may never seen before or forgotten about, dust it off, and create something with it. Not only am I a CAS kinda gal but I also love sketches -- good thing for Pinterest!! I found an old sketch that worked perfectly for my sweet Turtle - Flower image from Bugaboo. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your today!!
