Happy Birthday to You!

I'm cutting it a little close getting the sketch challenge card done for the From the Heart Blog. I used the From the Heart freebie image Mouse Balloon. My pattern papers from Lawn Fawn just came in the mail yesterday!! I love happy mail!!! The sentiment is from Paper Trey Ink, Around & About. Quick and fun to make! Now I can't wait to see what the new sketch is going to be!!!!!
   

Hey There

Welcome to a new CAS challenge at The Outlawz -- use paint on your project. At first I was kinda stumped until I found an old bottle of white acrylic paint in my stash. All I did was create these stripes on black cardstock. EASY!!! A perfect backdrop for the color layering Rooster from Hero Arts that I received in the mail just yesterday!!! I couldn't wait to ink him up using one of my all time favorite color combos of black, white and red. Now it's your turn to show us what you can create using paint in CAS fashion over at The Outlawz

Challenges I'm submitting my card to include:
A Gem of a Challenge - Favorite color combo
Animal Friends - No pattern paper/must include an animal
Aud Sentiments - Animal + a sentiment
Little Red Wagon - Down on the farm
Die Cuttin' Divas - Animals

It's an Awesome Day

Today is awesome because not only is it the weekend but also it's the start of a new challenge at Catch the Bug!!! This week it's a photo inspiration challenge. We're still having such warm temps here in Pittsburgh and I am lovin' it!!

But I did go with the skiing theme for my card, using the sweet AKV Winter - Ski image from Bugaboo. I wanted to create a mound of snow but I didn't like white cardstock so I went with vellum instead. To make it stand out a bit, I added Stickles around the edge. Now it's your turn to share your project based on the photo inspiration over at Catch the Bug.

Hi Ya!

It's Oldie But Goodie Thursday over at Catch the Bug. It's fun seeing what older Bugaboo images I have in my stash!! Like this one, Garden Cat - Plant Pot. I've been printing off my images lately then cutting them out with my Scan N Cut so I'm never at a loss for something to create with! Enjoy your day and hope you get a chance to get crafty!!
 

You Are Tea-rific!

Welcome to another Thursday inspiration day for Imagine That Digistamp. With our unseasonably warm temps here in Pittsburgh, spring is on my mind. So I went with the adorable Sweet Feet Tea set and scrap pattern paper is springy colors. More inspiration can be found over at the Imagine That Digistamp blog, Creative Playground.

Just Bee-cause

Stella has a new sketch for you to try out over at Catch the Bug. I sure hope you can play along! 

Here's my take on the sketch, pretty straight forward I know!!! I used the super sweet Bugaboo image Bugaboo Brats Bugs - Boy Bee. Is he not the cutest?!! I had cut him out with my Scan N Cut so he could sit perfectly along the edge of the circle! I want you to take notice that I did NOT use pattern paper on my card...shocker I know!!! The sentiment comes from the Honey Bee Sentiments stamp set at Paper Trey Ink. Like I said, sure hope you can join us for Stella's latest sketch over at Catch the Bug.

  

Best Wishes

It's time to share our latest Clean & Simple challenge this week at The Outlawz -- create a card with a romantic theme. Because I never seem to have any, I went with an anniversary card. The background makes use of the Guide Lines stamp set from Paper Trey Ink. I used 3 of the new Catherine Pooler inks -- Tiki Torch, Tiara, and Aquatini -- and the felt flower die cut and sentiment are both from Taylored Expressions. I work so much with digital images it's a blast when I get a chance to get inky! I sure hope you can join us for some romantic fun over at The Outlawz, CAS style of course!!
