Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday. It's the fabulous Susan's turn to host our Addicted to CAS Challenge this week and it's a color challenge: The design team have some fabulous inspiration for you, including our very talented guest designer for this challenge YoonYoung Kim For my card, I decided to stick very closely to my two least favorite colors .... pink .... and purple! I paired it with the neutrals of black, white and gray, so that the ahem, pink and purple, could take center stage. :-) I brought out my new favorite Stampin' Up! Free as a Bird set and...

Hi everyone. Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous Laurie's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a sketch for us: I thought this sketch called for the use of some of my new DSP - Bird Ballad.

Hi everyone. Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous Joanne's turn to host our Paper Players challenge and it's theme week: This challenge was right up my alley! I've spent the last two weeks making cards for my final 2019 batch to be sent off to SendaSmile4Kids. The hardest part was choosing which card to showcase for the challenge:-) In the end, I went with a Christmas card. The snowman and the sentiment are from an Echo Park scrapbooking kit that I repurposed to make Christmas cards for the kids. I mounted both of the elements on fun foam and put them... Read more →
