CAS(E) This Sketch #293

My internet was out this morning and I was so afraid I wouldn't be able to post my card for CAS(E) This Sketch.  Isn't it crazy how much we rely on the internet?  Half a day down and we don't know what to do with ourselves.  I should have posted it right after I made it.  Here it is now.

I just love this little owl from Gerda Steiner.  Who am I kidding?  I love any owl. 😉  This one is colored with PolyChromos.  The background is covered with a variety of Distress Inks, the moon is a leftover circle and the cloud is hand cut from vellum - all based on this sketch.
Thanks for dropping by.  Owl see you later.  😀

Addicted to Stamps and More #314

It's Clean and Simple time at Addicted to Stamps and More.  Here's my card.

I wanted something to send to my granddaughter and I thought this little squirrel from Gerda Steiner would lift her up.  He's colored with PolyChromos and placed inside a panel cut with MFT's domed die.  The panel was raised over a stenciled background with foam tape and a heat embossed sentiment added.

What will you make for our CAS challenge?



Time Out #120 and Seize the Birthday

I like nothing better than something colorful and Time Out wants us to make a colorful card so I'm more than happy to oblige.
These wonderful birthday banners from C9 were stamped in Onyx Black and colored with Inktense pencils. 

I'm also going to send it over to Seize the Birthday where anything goes.

The Flower Challenge Reminder

The Design Team has more cards to inspire you to make a card for this month's The Flower Challenge.
It's also our second birthday so there are some prizes for the winner.

Unfortunately you can't really see the sparkle on my card but I assure you that the Altenew flowers have been heat embossed in gold and properly covered with Spectrum Noir glitter pen. 




Coffee Cozy Inspiration

Some of you may know that Michele Ferguson and I took a trip to Florida to meet with Nancy Leppek and go see Kathy Racoosin at My Favorite Things as part of her Coloring Challenge Road Trip.
This is the only picture I have of the three of us taken the night before we went to Mt. Dora on Friday to be closer to Eustis, home of MFT for the Saturday class.  While at the hotel, Nancy brought us a cup with a coffee cozy on it and challenge us to make a card based on it.  Here is my cozy.
And my card.

Michele and Nancy should be posting their cards today too.  Why not check them out to see what they did with their inspiration.

September Essentials Challenge

Today's card is for the September Essentials Challenge at Ellen Hutson.  This is the sketch we are to follow.
And my card.
You have to use stamps that are sold by Ellen Hutson on your card so I've used the Altenew Spring Daisy for my flower and a sentiment from MFT's More Essential Sentiments.  The background is from my WTDWT (what to do with this) drawer that was made with shaving foam and food coloring.

Thanks for dropping by.
