CASology Challenge - Spin; Muse Card Challenge #155

Hi there,
I'm back with a few cards...the first is for this week's challenge at CASology for the Cue Card 'Spin': 



The ship's wheel is from Paper Smooches Wicked Nauticool set, and the sentiment and waves are from PTI Ahoy stamp set.

 *****


My 2nd card is for this week's challenge at Muse Card Club. Natasha Kara created the cutest card, and this is my take on her ideas:

I used the brand new Mama Elephant set Carried Away for this card, and blended the background with distress inks.The purple balloon is from a DCWV 'Bright' cardstock pack...Fun!

So, that's it for me. Thanks so much for stopping by ~ Have a great week,

Oh Barb, I am loving the Muse card, specially the big purple balloon.
The second card is really a CAS delight, perfect colors and placement of the stamps.

Your SPIN has just caused a Tsunami of appreciation for your clever, clever design, Barb!!! OH my I'd forgotten how much I love those PS waves ...fabulous!
You have such a knack for detail, Barb... those little tufts of grass just give your sweet little guy a perfect lift-off - or soft landing!
Have a wonderful Monday, Barb!

Fantastic card for CASology. Love the motion you have with your water and your ship's wheel. Don't you just love those birds--they are the perfect little accessory to a nautical card. And, your giant purple balloon is just too fun on your birthday card. Thanks so much for playing along at CASology.

Gorgeously cool and graphic nautical card, Barb ... those waves are brilliant! What a fab and fun little chap being lifted high into the beautifully sponged sky on the string of that bold bright balloon ... such a great sense of movement ... and so cute! Hugs, Anita :)

From the waters to the skies, your cards are both sweet and marvelous! Love the waves; adore the little one drifting skyward with the beautiful balloon. Truly charming...
