CAS Challenge at Outlawz

Hi blog friends!

I hope you all had a fabulous 4th of July! 

There's another CAS challenge over at Outlawz and this week it's Lynn's turn to challenge us - I hope you'll take a moment and check it out and better yet, join in and take Lynn's challenge for some creative fun.  You'll have an opportunity to win some fabulous prizes too. 

Here's Lynn's challenge:  'You are so sweet'. Let someone know how sweet they are by creating a CAS card featuring something sweet like chocolates, sweets, cupcakes. Anything yummy!

Here's a card I created for this challenge

The image and sentiment are from "Sweetest Blessings" GKD.  That awesome ribbon was a win from Annette Hindes Memorial Day OWH blog hop.  I absolutely LOVE this ribbon.  Thanks so much, Annette.  And this card will be off to OWH in a package of other cards for those heros who serve us so well.  

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Now, get on over to Outlawz and play along with Lynnn's challenge or any one of the daily challenges.  You could be the lucky winner of some of those fabulous prize give-a-ways!

Hi blog friends!! 

Before I get to my post today I'd like to offer the folks of Arizona and the families of the firefighters lost in the fire my deepest sympathies.  This loss is so sad and tragic and my heart goes out to those who are mourning. 

Also, as many of you may already know as of July 1, 2013, blogger has discontinued their Google Reader - please click on the BLOGLOVIN button on the right side bar and continue to follow me there to continue getting my posts. 

Well, it's Wednesday and if it's not What If? Wednesday at The House That Stamps Built, it's Designer's Choice Challenge Wednesday (they alternate, if you haven't noticed).  This time Deonna has challenged us to create a monochoromatic card. 

"Monochromatic" (for those of you who may not know) means "having or consisting of one color or hue".  Deonna has come up with a fun challenge and we hope you'll play along with us. 

Here's my card for the challenge

For this card I used one of the new stamps from the set "Pairings"   #9307-L and #9315-D.  The dress was paper pieced and I used Viva Pearl Pen for the pearl embellishments. 

Please visit the other Repeat Impression Rock Stars for even more inspiration and then join us for Deonna's monochromatic challenge.  Enter your card at The House That Stamps Built and you'll be enetered in a drawing to win some fabulous RI stamps.  What's more, you use Repeat Impressions stamps you'll be entered in the drawing TWICE.   

Don't forget to link over to Bloglovin to follow me...I sure would appreciate it.
