Hi Everyone. Happy Friday.
It's the fabulous Deepti's turn to host our Addicted to CAS challenge this week and she has a fun word for us:
When I saw this, I immediately thought of a rainbow and decided that was what I was going to incorporate into my card. Before I share my card with you, I wanted to let you know that the winner of our challenge this week will receive a prize of a $15 shopping spree from our fabulous sponsor - and challenge creator Kylie at:
I created a watercolor card using my Zig Markers. I used a piece of Archers watercolor paper and laid down a layer of each color and then spritzed the watercolor stripes with water and stood it up to allow the water to cause drips. Once the ink was dry, I heat embossed the sentiment and popped up the watercolor layer onto card stock. But... I just couldn't let it go like that - and added some sequins.
Here's my card:
If you are looking for some inspiration, you have to look no further than the amazing creations of our design team - including our guest designer Julia Altermann
On a personal note:
I was supposed to have this week off work, but ended up working every day except today. Today I relaxed, did a little housework and spent a little time sitting out watching the comings and goings in the woodland and wetland.
I wanted to share a couple of photos with you. This first one is a little out of focus on the left because Daddy woodpecker was in flight when the shutter closed. He was delivering a dried worm to his youngster:
The extremes in temperature and long winters take a toll on our deck and the railing was certainly showing tremendous signs of wear! It didn't stop the birds from using it as a landing strip - and feeding place!
I went out and tried to take some photos of the wildflowers growing in our prairie and I think this is a Giant Chickweed
I'll be back tomorrow with my Paper Players card. In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.
