A special birthday

My great-aunt is turning 97 and my Mom requested a special card for her. I pulled out my lace and lots of florals from GinaK Designs.  My good 'ol Spellbinders dies were dusted off for this one.

Addicted to CAS: SUMMER

Looks like everyone in the Northern Hemisphere is celebrating summer. Here it's not been nearly cold enough for winter!




Stamp set used: Unity Company "Spirit of Summertime" (KOM July 2013)

Summery Salute with CTS230

Here's a quick salute to summer with Case this Sketch & Sunday Stamps (links below).
I used two very old images I googled with a sentiment from Unity Stamps "Basically Said" set. All three panels are on three different levels. I turned the CTS sketch side-ways so that it fit the dimensions of my images.




Trust you are all well.

Life in the moments (CtS 228)


I was so inspired by the sketch at Case The Sketch #228 that I wanted to try another one:

Greetings all

A quick card following the latest sketch at CAS Colours & Sketches (links below):

I used the larger tree for the main focus element and then the smaller tree with stamping off as the 2nd and 3rd elements.

Freshly Made Sketches #293

Here's another kick-starter card I made today using the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #293!


Here's the sketch:

I used 3 sized die-cuts (Spellbinders) from matching papers to create the right-hand side decorative area and over-stamped it with a butterfly stamp (after stamping off excess ink) to tie it together.

The sentiment and butterfly stamp is from an old Kit of the Month  "Be your own kind of Beautiful" (1/14) of Unity Stamps.

Be well.

I'm back with CtS #227

After a very, very long time in the desert I am finally back. So much has happened in my life in the past two years it can fill volumes, but the most important thing is, I'm here. I'm back.

To get back into the groove of things I reverted to my favorite CAS challenges and started with Cas(e) this Sketch #227 which is running currently.


Here's the sketch:

I used one of my own images at Digistamps4Joy:  Tea Cups

Be well and God bless!!
