Hugs and Boo to You!

Hi there blog friends! I'm back to share 2 cards I created for this week's challenges at CASology and Muse ~

First up...my dear friend, Cat Craig is Guest Designer this week at Muse and she has created this beautiful card to inspire us:


And, my take:


I used a NBUS from PTI called Humming Along for my blooms and hummingbird and a die cut sentiment from SSS.

I focused on Cat's:
- Color Palette
- Layout
- Floral theme
- Black script sentiment

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

My 2nd card is for CASology and the cue card this week is 'Square' ~





I love this PTI ghost from Spooky Smiles, (illustrated by my friend Kay Miller). I colored him with Copics and attached him to the PTI die cut Four Square. This card is 5x5 so I'll make a custom envie for it :)

So, that's it for me! I hope everyone has a really safe and fun Labor Day Weekend ~ 
Thanks so much for stopping by,

Hi Barb! OH as beautiful as Cat's card is, those little feathered friend's are among my favorites - so happy to see one here! We're gearing up to say goodbye 'til next year, as they'll be heading South pretty soon.
LOve this gorgeous card, the lavender, and thin strip of gold sets off the bloom..beautifully.
Now let's talk about your boo-buddy - as un-spooky and fun as he can be!!!
=] xx and have a wonderful holiday weekend!
