Birthday Wishes

 Here I have a card inspired by last week’s CAS(E) this Sketch #107.

I’m going to play this over at CASology’s Week 131: BIRTHDAY challenge.

I’ve got quite a few more cards to post, so I’ll be off now.

Thanks for stopping by!

Celebrate, Yellow

  Snow…..beautiful, big, fluffy snowflakes drifting down outside my living room window. Fluttering, a bit like butterflies? O.K., maybe that’s a stretch?

Here ARE some butterflies though….

Some Watercolor Wonder DSP from Stampin’ Up along with 2 butterfly punches and an Avery Elle pinked rectangle die made fairly fast work of this CAS card.

The “Celebrate” sentiment from PTI, makes this a versatile card. Maybe it will be a birthday card?It was inspired by last week’s CAS(E) this Sketch #107. I’ve been nursing my daughter through her wisdom teeth extraction and didn’t get the chance to post this until today. I am going to play this over at CASology’s Week 131: BIRTHDAY challenge.

I seem to be developing a trend of missing CTS’s deadlines. 😦

I’ve got quite a few cards to post, so I’ll be off now.

PTI January 2015 Blog Hop Challenge

Wow! I was so excited to see the inspiring photos for PTI’s January Blog Hop!

January-2015-PTI-Blog-HopOhhhhhh…….

the possibilities!

I had so many ideas for each photo. So much card-making fun to be had! 🙂

Here’s the card that I have decided to share as my entry in the Blog Hop.

I used PTI’s Background Basics: Super Stripes Stamp Set to make the ombre rainbow.  The “>>>–love–>” sentiment is from the “Happy Hearts” stamp set. I used a large variety of SU, Tim Holtz and Hero Arts inks. The paper is Bazzill’s Marshmallow and SU Whisper White.

Here’s another look at the inspiration photo and my card together.

I like making square cards and the shape seems to work nicely with the heart, which I cut out using a Sizzix Framelits Heart die. I will also be playing this over at Uniko Studio’s Challenge #17: Love and Friendship and SSS’s Wednesday Challenge Simon Says Have a Heart and TIME OUT’s challenge #23: Valentine’s Day With the Optional Twist of Hearts

P.S. Please hop over and look at my daughter’s card. She’s not feeling well and could use some encouraging words. Thanks!

P.P.S. The inspiration photos got me into creative overdrive! I made quite a few cards and had such a hard time choosing which one to link up. I was excited to share them all, but alas, PTI’s hop is limited to one entry per person! What to do?!My solution? Secret ballot vote! I enlisted the help of my family in choosing which card to share in the Blog Hop. The vote was nearly unanimous, but everyone had other favorites too. If you have time to, I’d like to invite you to take a look at the other PTI January Blog Hop inspired cards that I made.

Two Hearts, One More

One more card for today! This one is totally different from my normal style. I wasn’t going to share it, but my two youngest girls insisted. So here it is:

A swirly stamped strip on a white base and white emboss resist rainbow of butterflies.

My card was inspired by this so very pretty one of Marion’s over at Muse.

Another look at this “friendly” card that I will be playing at CASolgy’s Week 130 Challengeand  & over at Uniko Studio’s Love and Friendship challenge!
