Hi Everyone. Happy Thursday. Quick post for you tonight. One of the challenges I managed to play along with over the long weekend is Merry Monday. It's a fabulous sketch challenge Isn't that an awesome sketch? I immediately knew what I wanted to do with it! I pulled out my new Core'dinations sandable card stock and ran it through my Big Shot and SU embossing folder and then sanded off the top layers of color using my sanding block. Even though the color variation is slight because of the Pool Party, you can still tell the difference. Here's a close-up... Read more →

Hi Everyone Quick post for you tonight. AddictedtoCAS and CAS-ual Fridays have a great challenge this week - a color combo for CAS-ual Fridays and a theme at Addicted to CAS.

Here are the colors My initial thought had been to go floral, but decided to go in a different direction entirely, one that was more in keeping with this time of year as summer starts to hover on the horizon! I pulled out... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday night. It's the fabulous LeAnne's turn to host at the Paper Players this week and she has a great sketch for use. When I first saw it I thought... aaargh:-) However, I then started to really think about it and had several ideas on how to create my card. I made one card with this sketch for the challenge, but, because I had a couple of other ideas in my head, I will be trying out a couple more over the next two days. I needed a card for Lou. Why? Well, let's just say that... Read more →
