Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday. It's the fabulous Bobby's turn to host our Addicted to CAS challenge this week and here is her code word: When I was creating a card for this challenge, I realized that I had no card front sentiments that fit that challenge. Then I thought about it.... why do you have to use a "headline" sentiment. What's wrong with using the sentiments that were meant more for "internal" and change it up and use it for the front of the card. Well, that was my thinking, anyway! I used a "Merry Christmas" from the Altenew set... Read more →


Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. It's my turn to host the Paper Players challenge this week - and it's theme week. As an aside, I just love the badge that Nance created for our challenge..... Seeing the Aurora is on my life list. This year, we had a 98% chance of seeing it in our area - but it was rainy and cloudy that night! So, I wasn't able to check it off my life list! For my card, I pulled out a very old stamp set from the The Rubber Cafe called North Pole. It's one of those stamps that... Read more →


HI Everyone. Happy Tuesday. I have a quick post for you tonight showcasing a card I made using this sketch from casethissketch It didn't take me long to decide what to do with this sketch, especially as I had a new die sitting on my craft table - courtesy of my wonderful hubby, who brought back a bag full of goodies from a scrapbook store he visited when he was down in Australia! I used grey cardstock for the die-cut and removed two buildings on either side of the middle trio. I then stuck a piece of yellow card stock... Read more →


Hi Everyone. Well, I made a card using the Freshlymadesketches sketch... and missed the deadline for submission! However, I thought I would still share the card with you. The sketch is a very different sketch and really pushed me out of my comfort zone. Sendasmile4kids was looking for birthday cards and I made this card with them in mind. I began with one of my remaining Altenew butterflies and took my color queues from there. Here's my card: The fluttering by sentiment is from a Penny Black set called "Snippets" and I paired it with a Happy Birthday sentiment from... Read more →


Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous Claire's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week - and it's color week: Mmmm.... these colors scared the heck of out of me:-) and it wasn't just because I don't have them in my collection either. Bermuda Bay was never one of my go to SU colors and purple.... well, 'nuff said about purple:-). However, I do love the challenge of being forced to get out of my comfort zone and do something different. So, I'm thanking Claire for that! I was really tempted to go a floral route, but I...
