CC&S #256

Welcome back! I'm sharing another card for the CAS Colours and sketches challenge. This sketch had me thinking moon and star right away. I watercolored a galaxy background ,embossed a sentiment from PTI, the star is also PTI, I die cut a circle for the moon and sponged on a bit of pumice stone distress ink .I hope you will play along with us , I love seeing what everyone comes up with.

Hello! Happy Monday. I know who likes mondays? Not many people, but I try to make the best of it. Look at the positives, it rained here and had it been colder we would have FEET of snow instead of inches of rain..not bad for Chicago weather. I'm sharing an Easter card(yep I've started them already) for CASe this sketch's weekly challenge. This sketch looked fun. Thanks for stopping by today, I'll be back tomorrow with another card to share.

CC&S 255

Welcome , I'm back with another card to share for the CAS Colours and Sketches challenge. This week we have a color challenge, I saw these colors and felt they would work well for snowflakes. I'm currently trying to build up my thank you card supply , so I plan to make a few of these.Does anyone else do that< make a bunch of the same kind of card? I do that often , I usually switch up the colors.  I used a fun stamp from MFT for the snowflakes and the sentiment is from Reverse Confetti. Hope to have you join us, see you again soon.

CASology #282 HUGS

Hello! I'm back with another card to share today. This card is for CASology challenge #282 HUGS. I am starting on some Valentine's cards , so this challenge is perfect for that. I watercolored various pinks , die cut some hearts and a sentiment. I'm having a difficult day with appliances, so I needed some crafting time to cheer myself up. Thanks for stopping by today.

MIM #309

Hello! I'm having a frustrating day today. My washer broke , so I purchased a new one.... guess what it isn't working either...so while I not so patiently wait (4 days no washer, laundry up to my ears) for lowes to bring me a new one I'll play along with a few challenges. This card is for MIM heat embossed stencils. I don't have any PTI stencils yet, so I made my own using a cover plate and some acetate . I used heat and stick embossing powder so I could try out my nuvo gilding flakes. When they tell you don't breathe when you open them , not kidding. I have a huge mess to clean up next. But the end result is pretty. Thanks for stopping by.
