SSS Flickr Challenge; CAS on Sunday

Hi there blog friends,
I'm back to share a few cards I created for two challenges ~ My first card is for the current SSS Flickr Challenge, and the theme is 'Anything Goes'.

While there's still frost on the ground where I am, I yearn for the warm weather and a day at the beach, hence my inspiration for this card. I used SSS Sailing stamp set and Sailboat die. Some Copic coloring and Liquid Platinum EP, and that was it ~


My second card is for the CAS on Sunday Challenge, and the theme is 'Critters' ~

The inside of the card says 'Hello'. I think Mama Elephant creates the cutest critters, and I couldn't resist these adorable pups on skateboards.  I sponged Hero Arts shadow inks for the road and inked the clouds with distress inks. The pups were colored with Copic markers...and that was it!

Also, I want to thank Darnell once again for her incredible generosity ~ To create my cards, I used my brand new mini-MISTI which I won for her NBUS Challenge #9!

I hope everyone has had a fun weekend and that you have a wonderful week ahead ~ Thanks so much for stopping by ~

CASology Challenge #237 - Guest Designer

Hello everyone,
A few weeks ago, I won the CASology Challenge with this card and today I am honored to be the Guest Designer for the Cue Card 'Score'.  Here is my card:

I added random score lines in the upper left-hand corner of my card for my take on the Cue Card. In case they are difficult for you to see on screen, here is a close up:

I created a mask and used Distress Inks for the 'globe' and Copic markers for the astronaut. The die cut sentiment is from SSS, and everything else is from MFT. This was a challenging Cue Card for me, and I can't wait to see everyone's project this week :)

Thanks so much to Melissa and the Design Team ~ I always enjoy playing along at CASology!

That's it for me today...Thanks so much for stopping by,

Addicted to CAS Challenge #105 - Wood

Hi everyone! It's time for a new challenge at Addicted to CAS 
As you can see, our Code Word is 'Wood'
Our Sponsor is STAMPlorations
Our Hostess is Ceal
And, our Guest Designer for this challenge is super sweet and incredibly talented Magic Flying Boots (Jen)!

Here is my take on the Code Word:

I thought this would be a great card to add to a book for my granddaughter, Desi...although, I think she does more reading on her iPad these days..what can I say ~
I used a new MFT set called 'Our Story'. I colored the elements with Copic markers, sponged the rays of light from the lamp, and added the woodgrain cardstock to depict a hardwood floor. Fun, sweet and CAS, just the way I like it :)

So that's it for me today...if you would like to check out the cards that my amazing teamies created and join us in this challenge, come on over to the Addicted to CAS Blog ~ We would love to see you there!

I hope you all have a great weekend...Thanks so much for stopping by,
