Hi Everyone. Hppy Saturday.
It's the fabulous Ceal's turn to host ouor Addicted to CAS challenge and she has a theme that most of us can really relate to right now! I also want to thank my Addictd to CAS team for their patience and picking up for me whilst I was unable to card!
Considering it was over 90 degrees with 88% humidity when I made this card, it was certainly hot:-)
As I am still recovering from hand surgery, CAS is as much as I can manage right now, this was a perfect challenge.
I used my Tim Holtz stencil to create sun rays and outlined them in the fabulous glitter pens that my bestie, Pam, bought me for my birthday. I added two colors of Distress Inks and then die-cut the panel and stamped my sentiment. I added a couple of different enamel dots and mounted the panel onto a plain white base.
Here's a close-up, where you can see the glittery outlines.
With one hand and two fingers on the other, the hardest thing about creating this card was trying to get the panel straight! But I managed!
I hope you will join us and play along. As usual the design team have some fabulous inspiration for you - including our very talented guest designer Deepti whose precious watermelon card makes my mouth water!
On a personal note:
I continue to do my exercises 5x+ per day and it really is helping to get the joints and tendons moving and it feels good for the skin on my hand to get some fresh air :-)
Most of the photographs I have taken are just not in focus! However, I did manage to capture a shot of one of my favorite jelly visitors - the catbird. We have two pairs that are nesting in the cypress trees and I love to hear their mewing call.
They really are such a fabulous little bird! I'll be back tomorrow with my Paper Players card and another bird photo. In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.
