CASology, Merry Monday & The Flower Challenge


Hello again ~ I'm back with a few cards to share, in response to some fun challenges. First up is for the CASology Challenge #232 and the Cue Card is 'Cut'.


I noticed that there are a lot of beautiful cards in the CASology gallery with die cuts of flowers and sentiments, but I have to say, as a nurse, the first thing that comes to mind with the word 'Cut' is Band-Aid! And, it is a die cut, too :)

********************

Next up is a card I created for the Merry Monday Challenge. We are being asked to make a Christmas card with a reindeer on it...no problem there!


I happened to have this trio of beauties in my stash, so I created a monochromatic card with a fading blue sky in the background. Another Christmas card done and dusted...Yay!

********************

My last card is for The Flower Challenge #4. This is my first time playing along there, but it gave me a chance to take out some new dies that I bought for this Winnie & Walter stamp set. The theme is 'Blue & Yellow'...here is my card:


I decided to just blend some of my inks on the flowers and leaves and I paired them with this PTI sentiment.

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Three fantastic cards Barb. LOVE your interpretation of the "cut" challenge ... your gingham bandaid is so adorable!! :)

Your other two cards are beautiful and elegant. Love the soft pastel shades of the winter sky with sparkly falling snow and your pretty flowers paired with that gorgeous, large, scripty sentiment. xx

A trio of beauties, Barb! I LOVE your first card - a brilliant take on the cue word! And who wouldn't feel better with a sweet, plaid Band-Aid? :) I love how the deer pop against that soft gorgeous on your second card and the soft colours on those flowers are so pretty! Thanks for playing along with CASology this week!

Three wonderful cards, Barb. I just adore the cute get well card you made--a red gingham bandaid would take the sting off any little cut or scrape. And, your snowy deer are so peaceful looking, and the flowers...simply gorgeous. Thanks so much for playing along at CASology this week.

Triple the loveliness today, Barb ... a sweet little band-aid, love the gingham, and such a great take on the cue card ... beautiful reindeer scene, so peaceful with the softly falling snow against the subtle sponged ombré background ... and gorgeous blooms framing that fabulous scripty sentiment! Hugs, Anita :)

Love them all, that MFT band aid, I missed getting before it sold out and the pretty soft pastels on the other two cards! Lovely!

I love the first card with that fun gingham band aid. I think of a band aid as well when I hear "cut." The second card is amazing with that little scene you created. I LOVE your card for the Flower challenge. I have a card I want to enter in that but have yet to finish it!! Great design for all of your creations!!
