CAS(E) this Sketch #205... take two!


Three posts in one day may be just a bit excessive. But I had one more up my sleeve for CTS #205! This little A4 (3.5x5) card is right up my alley (florals, of course). However, I may have taken a few liberties with the sketch....
Some pretty pinks, Spellbinder 'Blossom' dies, little leaves from Frantic Stamper and a tiny sentiment from W&W..... CAS is always the way to go!
We hope that you'll accept the challenge and play along at CAS(E) this Sketch #205!




CAS(E) this Sketch #205

Welcome to CTS #205 and a great sketch from Chrissy! My teammates have all knocked this sketch out of the park, so be sure to take a peek, be inspired and then join in at CAS(E) this Sketch #205!
Me? Oh, this one was a challenge. This card ended up looking kinda like a Christmas/Mickey Mouse combo (and not in a good way!). But.... I've got one more in the works, so stay tuned.
Please join us in creating for CTS #205 and be sure to give a bit of love to our GD, Rebekah!




The Fusion Challenge-Australia Day


Happy Thursday and welcome to the newest Fusion Card Challenge! Such a great inspiration photo and an equally amazing sketch! There are many lovely DT projects too, so be sure to take a peek and, hopefully, be inspired to create away!
When playing along you may use the sketch OR the photo as your jumping off point. OR, if you are feeling super duper clever, you can fuse 'em together.
Thanks to all who joined in the Fusion 3rd Anniversary celebration! WOW.... SO many amazing contributions!











































Unfortunately, there are no lemons or limes here! However, there are some beautiful yellows/greens and a bit of black (enamel dots, paint splatter) as an accent. Finally got to use the lovely flower from Altenew's set ('Beautiful Lady"), along with the crisp frame and stitched banners from Frantic Stamper. 

We hope that you'll join in at the Fusion Card Challenge and will enjoy all of the loveliness from the DT and the always amazing gallery!

CAS(E) this Sketch #204

Oh, just take a peek at this pretty little floral sketch from N@Ali! The DT has some lover-ly inspiration too. Can't wait to see how you are inspired to create for CAS(E) this Sketch #204!
I borrowed this floral-filled PTI stamp set from my MIL and began to play with color. Then..... a bit of gingham pp from A Muse and a few enamel dots. A quick, CAS card - which of course turned into 4-5 more. A great sketch to boost your stash!
Please join in the fun at CTS #204 this week!
P.S. - A warm welcome to GD, Olga!

CAS(E) this Sketch #203

Happy 2017 and welcome to CAS(E) this Sketch #203! Here's a beautiful sketch from the lovely Michele that we hope will inspire you to play along!
I love this pretty scallop die from Frantic Stamper and the floral/word dies were found in my leftovers (yikes... you should see that growing pile!). Such a pretty aqua/green combo.
P.S.-A warm welcome to our GD, Shawna!

The 12 Kits of Occasions-Part Deux


Happy Tuesday! Here (finally) are my 
remaining 12 Kits projects.... using some 
of the black, white and shimmery gold
and copper papers and elements from the 12 Kits of Occasions December kit! 
Jessica included many beautiful patterned 
papers in her kit (all December supplies can 
be found here)!  But I'm helpless when it comes to photographing these metallics....SO pretty IRL.
