CAS(E) this Sketch! #94

It's time for a new sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch!


I flipped the lines and made a fun background for my Christmas card.


It's that time of year, I'm definitely making the switch over to Christmas cards.  Last year I started in August so I'm actually a bit behind :)  The Snow Day stamp set by Lawn Fawn is the first new holiday set I purchased this year.  I'm not usually drawn to cutesy sets, but the little bunnies in this set just pull on my heart strings.  Isn't he SO cute?!

Head over to CAS(E) this Sketch to see how the rest of the DT as inspired by this week's sketch.  I hope to see your creations linked up!  Have a great day :)

What I'm Up To & a Winner


My blog has been a bit neglected lately.  I'm sorry for the long breaks between posts, but that certainly doesn't mean I haven't been stamping.  I've been working on quite a few things behind the scenes and preparing for some upcoming events like World Card Making Day (the biggest, best, my most favorite StampNation event of the year!) our next online class, my next App...exciting stuff! 

In the midst of it all I have offered to make thank you cards for my cousins wedding.  We were supposed to attend the wedding in SC as a part of my 40th (yikes!) birthday celebration but a few things that are out of our control were stacking up against us and we had to cancel our trip :(  The wedding is taking place at my cousins home, in a field, under a big tent.  A true Southern celebration with BBQ and all the fixings after the ceremony.  When coming up with a design for their cards I immediately thought of the Birds & Branches Frame Die by WPlus9.  I think it's perfect for their outdoor, rustic setting.  I made a few other cards for them to choose from, but I wasn't surprised when they picked this one.  So, mass producing this card is at the top of my list today, as the wedding is on Saturday and I have to get these in the mail pronto!

Within a few weeks, my blog will be hopping again!  Thanks for continuing to stop by and leave me comments, they sure do brighten my day.  Before I go, I do have a StampNation membership to give away from Catherine's Housewarming Party.  Drum roll please.....

Tag You're It #6

It's time for a new challenge over at Tag You're It!


Here's my take on the challenge...


I love the soft, serene look of Karin's tag, so that's the idea I went with.  I stamped images from the Flora & Fauna 2 set in Coconut Husk ink and replicated the idea of flowers on the bottom of the tag and an image off the edge like Karin's design.  I stamped the bottom of the card in the same ink to ground my card.  Pretty Pink Posh 4mm Metallic Gold Sequins were the perfect finishing touch (as always :)

Head over to Tag You're It! to see how the rest of the DT was inspired.  I hope to see you playing along.  Our challenges are open for two weeks, so you have plenty of time to play!

CAS(E) this Sketch #92

It's time for a new sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch!



I got a bit creative with this sketch...



I kept with the idea of something hanging down in the right corner, but rather than a pretty banner I went with the Ghost Border Die from Lil' Inkers.  The sentiment from Boo & Faces was heat embossed in white.  This card is about as CAS as it gets!

I can't end this post today without sending my thoughts to those who lost their lives on this day 13 years.  We will never forget!
