Happy Thursday. Well.... mmmmm.... grrrrrr..... I completely flaked and missed that my Addicted to CAS card was due up last Saturday!!!! Definitely retirement/vacation/cruising brain! So, for my AddictedtoCAS card this week, I pulled out an old set from the Greetery called Buzz-worthy. Here's a sneak peek: And here is Vicki's code word for this week: I used the dies to create the honeycomb and stamped and die-cut the bees and added some vellum wings. I colored the background behind the die-cut honeycomb with yellow inks. Really easy to put together! Here's my card: I hope you will join us and... Read more →

Happy Sunday and greetings from somewhere in the middle of the Indian Ocean! It's the fabulous LeAnne's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and it's color week. LeAnne chose one of my favorite color combos - and it's perfect for those of you thinking about spring! It was the perfect excuse for me to ink up a set I bought on sale at Pinkfresh Studio called Reason to Smile. Here's a sneak peek: I think you might have got an inkling of what the color scheme was for this week:-) But here's LeAnne's color challenge: Such a... Read more →
