Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday.
I hope you have had a great week. Me? I am so looking forward to the weekend!
It's the fabulous Shana's turn to host our Addicted to CAS challenge this week and she has a code word which is so appropriate for this time of year.
I inked up one of my favorite SU Christmas stamp sets - Beauty of the Season. My regular readers will know that I love the Cardinals in winter, consequently, I love this set:-)
I usually stamp onto Whisper White card stock, but decided to use some Soft Sky instead. I then colored the cardinal with copic markers and added just a little touch of black enamel accents onto the eye of the cardinal.
I didn't have an appropriate sentiment, so used my word processing software to create the sentiment tying in the red from the cardinal with the sentiment.
Of course I had to use my Lil Inker stitched rectangles and circles - I really am in love with the stitched dies - they really do help to frame the focal elements.
I mounted the focal layer onto the base layer with double sided tape to add a little dimension.
Here's my card:
I hope you will join us at Addicted to CAS this week, we'd love to see what you do with this code word. Our winner this week will win 5 digis from our wonderful sponsor
The design team have create some wonderful projects for your inspiration and I hope that you will pop along to Addicted to CAS to check them out.
On a personal note:
I am so glad it is the weekend and that I have a couple of days to spend with my hubby. He has been away for the last two weeks traveling to both Costa Rica and China with just a day at home between and it's always wonderful when we get to spend a little time together doing what we don't get to do for so much of the year - just enjoying being together and doing the normal day to day things. :-)
I'll be back on Sunday with another project for you and am hoping that I will get to spend some time in my craft space this weekend giving some love to my new SU goodies :-)
In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.
