CAS Mix-Up - March

Happy Birthday, CAS Mix-Up!  I can't believe it's been two years. It seems like just yesterday I was having fun trying new techniques to make cards for your challenge.  This month it's working with acetate.
I used alcohol ink on acetate and then stamped the background stamp from PB (one that I forgot I had) in archival ink on the opposite side. I used a frame die for the sentiment and colored it with Distress Inks to match the alcohol ink. 

I hope you're having a good day.  I just returned from a wonderful Lenten Breakfast that the women of our church hosted for area churches.  Yesterday we made cinnamon rolls and I was in early this morning baking breakfast casseroles and making curried fruit.  My husband and a couple of other men did the dishes while we enjoyed a musical program.  Next week another church is hosting a Lenten Luncheon.  It's good to get together with a like community of women - sort of like our crafty blogging friends.

  2. Wow Bobby, this is a show stopper!! Sorry I haven't been by for a few days. A little under the weather and extra busy. I took a stroll back in time and love each and every one! The flowers with the little picket fence is extra sweet!
