Happy Saturday. It's the fabulous Vicky's turn to host our Addicted to CAS challenge this week and here is her code word: When I thought of this code word, my initial reaction was to do something with clouds. Then I realized I didn't have anything that went with clouds, so I had to give it another thought. I went through my stamps and saw the balloon bouquet from the greetery and thought - oh.... balloons and sky! So, now you know why there is a balloon on my card! Here's my card: I die-cut the balloon from a piece of... Read more →

Happy Sunday - Again :-) Just a quick post as I wanted to share one of the cards I made today. As always, I went looking for some inspiration and visited one of my favorite sites - AtlanticHeartsSketches. I'd like to give a shout-out to the DT.

I saw this great sketch across at AtlanticHearts and decided to play along. Before I show you my card, I had to show you the inspiration for it. I wasn't inspired by the colors - but more by the sentiment on the framed piece. When we were looking for something to replace the winter themed one of the... Read more →

Happy Sunday It's the fabulous LeAnne's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and it's color week. When I first saw this color challenge I immediately thought masculine. It would have worked really well for some of the ideas that I had but, as I stood looking at my collection of stamps, I had an idea to use it with Free as a Bird instead! This set is one of my favorite Stampin' Up! sets of all time and is another one of those sets that won't get recycled for quite a while! I stamped and colored the... Read more →
