Addicted to CAS - Green



What a beautiful day...a bit cold to start off the morning walk, but it quickly warmed after a round of tennis!  Then lunch at home with the hubby---after a bit of yard work!


We have another challenge starting today at Addicted to CAS.  The theme for this week is Green. I went a little different here and focused my green on this card...I mean, who won't want green hair!




This is a super cute stamp from Stamping Bella...I just love these Odd Ball characters.  Also, hard to go wrong with green hair!

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Less is More - Take 3

Another beautiful day to start the weekend.  I took the puppy for a long leisurely walk--then some housework and finally time to have some fun in the studio.  Hope the weather holds for some tennis tomorrow!

We have a new challenge starting at Less is More.  Our theme for this challenge is Take 3.  What is this?  Well simply, anything that you have three of...words, colors, etc.  Here's my take on the challenge...





For this challenge.  I picked 3 colors for my background and 3 squares for each word.

How fun is that!

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Addicted to CAS - Fluffy




Done with the yard work and some general outdoor clean up.  Now time to do a bit of fun stuff, so I'm working on this next challenge at Addicted to CAS!  Our theme for this challenge is Fluffy.  So many options for this challenge that it is unclear where to start.  Here's my take on the challenge...




When I thought about this challenge my mind went directly to puffy clouds...so that is where I started.  The next most fluffy thing I could find are my cute little bunny stamps.  I colored both of the images with pinkish colors...I guess getting ready for Easter.

I decided to simply put the sentiment on the inside---a simple "Hug"!

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Less is More - Horoscope

What a beautiful day today...a little cold, but the sun is out and a lovely opportunity to take the dog for a long walk, then do a bit of yard work.

We have another challenge starting over at Less is More.  Our theme for this challenge is Horoscope.  What a fun and creative challenge.  Here's my take on the challenge...





I received these beautiful sentiment sayings from Visible Image and decided to use these as the typical saying in a horoscope.

I created my background with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and stamped my image with dark black ink.

A super simple card.

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Addicted to CAS - Grid




We have another challenge starting today at Addicted to CAS.  This one was a bit tricky for me as I wasn't sure what direction to go.  I decided to keep it simple (which I guess is perfect for a clean and simple themed challenge :))

Here's what I came up with...







I kept the images super simple with just a stamped flower and sentiment.  I then scored some grid lines to highlight this simple design--this is my grid!

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Less is More - Sentiment

It has been a wet and rainy few days but hopefully it will clear up soon and I can get back to playing tennis...also hoping my little puppy will be feeling better soon...he has a sprain from chasing squirrels.

We have another challenge over at Less is More---and we are celebrating our birthday.  We have a generous sponsor, CAS-ual Fridays, who will be giving out a prize...some come on over and join the fun.

Here's my take on this challenge...



These simple images really are sweet and allow the focus to be on the their little messages.  Hoping this card will bring some sunshine to a friend.

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Addicted to CAS - Birds



We have a fun weekend planned, with some sunshine, tennis and general outdoor activities...gotta enjoy the break in the rain!

Another challenge starting today at Addicted to CAS.  Our theme for this challenge is Birds.  I tried several different designs here before I was happy with this.

Here's my take on the challenge...



I thought it would be fun to have my birds on a wire.  The card looked a bit empty, so I added a few houses underneath but focused my color just on the birds.  I added my trademark little bubble on top of the card with the sentiment and done!

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
