Hi there, blog friends!  

There's a new challenge over at Outlawz CAS challenge this week and I'm hosting - I hope you'll have a chance to play could even get a few Christmas cards done at the same time!  

Here's the challenge:

It's coming up on the holiday season.  We've all heard the song, "I'll Be Home For Christmas", what we don't know is how you'd get home for Christmas...or any other occasion.  Your challenge this week is to show us in CAS style the mode of transportation you'd use to travel to see family or friends for the holidays or any occasion (car, train, plane, bike, horse, dog sled, magic carpet, walk, run, get the idea) . 

After all the pie and food over Thanksgiving, I better bike to wherever I'm going.  

Have a great day and thank you for stopping by.

Hey blog friends!!! 

Happy Thanksgiving to all my USA peeps!  I hope you are able to share and enjoy time with your family....there's no substitute for family...I treasure mine.  

There's a challenge happening at The House and this week it's another awesome sketch challenge.  Gotta tell ya....sketch challenges really stretch my creativity....90% of them stump me....but I really love the challenge.  

I wanted to create an easy peasy Christmas card with this sketch, so I chose the RI Stamp #8811-K "Joy Penguins", I cute are these guys???  Not much to creating this card....some coloring of the stars and penguins' beaks and feet.  I used Glossy Accents on the stars, beaks and feet for some additional layering.  The "icicles" were cut with a pendent die from designer paper.  The penguin layer is popped up after being mounted on a dark gray edge die.  

The details for this challenge are at The House and there are some incredible interpretations for this sketch on the other Rock Stars.....don't miss these....great talent on this design team.

Hello blog friends!  

I hope you all had a chance to take the blog hop "Big on Sentiments" this last week for the release of the newest sentiment stamps from Repeat Impressions.  Take it from me they are awesome!  

It's Wednesday and time for a weekly challenge from The House....this week it's a photo inspiration challenge....what inspires you about this photo?  Isn't it beautiful? I saw the beautiful sun resting on the edge of land....this could be sunrise or sunset.  

To create this card I did some masking and sponging.  It was relatively easy, a little time consuming but when I was finished, I really was pleased with it.  The stamps I used to create the silhouette image is RI #2709-I Lg Pine Forest.  The sentiment is RI# 4009-G, "In All Things".   

Don't miss the opportunity to enter this challenge and win yourself a gift certificate of $25.00 for any Repeat Impression stamps you'd like.  The details are at The House, and certainly don't miss the fabulous inspiration results from my team mates.

Hello blog friends!!! 

There's a new challenge over at the CAS group at Outlawz Challenges and it's to make a Christmas card using non-traditional colors (no red and green).  

I hope you'll get a chance to play along with the challenge.

This is a sponged bg over a white embossed stamp by Hero Arts "Tree Trunks".  A piece of vellum was placed over the background layer.  The snow hills were created with Mama Elephant "Landscape Trio" and Viva Glue Pen "Halogen".  The deer are from an Impression Obsession die "Small Deer".  The sentiment is from Sweet'n Sassy "Christmas Joy" set.  This card was CAS'd from memory of a card I had seen on Pinterest.  I didn't PIN the card and for the life of me I can't find it again in order to give credit to the inspiration and designer.  

Thanks for stopping by today!
