Photo Card

Thought it would be fun to make a card for my inlaws using a photograph of my daughter holding the flowers & bear they sent her because she broke her arm last Monday.
I have seen this idea before but can't remember where.  This was quick and simple but turned out fun.

CC275 & CAS71

I was so surprised to get Betty's email on Sunday asking me to participate in the colour challenge at SCS this week.  Most of my cards follow a sketch or I CASE someone else's work.  So, when she asked, I wasn't sure what to say!!   Well, I accepted and was so excited about this opportunity. 

I didn't CASE anyone or folow a sketch this time.  The colours for the challenge are Mellow Moss, Barely Banana and Real Red.  There was an extra challenge as well: to decorate a frame with anything like pearls, stitching or stickles.  So I chose these cute heart pearls from Hero Arts.

And I almost forgot.  The CAS challenge at SCS was to have a "flying" theme.  Those little hearts look like they're flying to me  :)

Anyway, this is going to a friend who suffers from depression.  Hoping to lift up her spirit. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a happy day!

Supplies: Stamp set by SU! A Happy Heart
Papers: Barely Banana, Mellow Moss, Real Red and Whisper White.
Ink: Versamark

Using up Paper Scraps

Made this card with a small scrap of pattern paper and thought I'd share.  Sometimes, it's nice to use up scraps.   I also scored, with the scoring blade, a square to give it a little "pop".

Papers: Kraft, Sweet Pea (retired)
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Scoring blade, White thread, Pop Dots.  Thanks for stopping by and have a happy day!

Here is my take on this week's sketch at SCS .  I used a friend of mine's digital kit.  It is called Corbin's Circus by Heather Sitarzewski.  So cute and fun.  Life has been a bit crazy this week with my clothes dryer quit on us.  Thanks to a sweet neighbour for helping out!

Supplies: Digital image by Heather Sitarzewski - Corbin's Circus
Papers: SU! Whisper White, Real Red and Corbin's Circus digital papers.
Accessories: Pop Dots, Oval Colluzzle. Sentiment done in Word.

Tessa Time

I pretty much copied her card but had to use a couple of different colours but they are so very close; hard to tell the difference.  I just loved how fun and clever her card was.  And the Crystal Effect is a nice detail she added.  I didn't have a small paper clip so I didn't put one on the card.  My sentiment is in French as I needed that  :)
Supplies: Stamp set by SU! Crazy for Cupcakes (111618)
Ink: Black and Riding Hood Red.
Papers: Whisper White, Riding Hood Red, Close to Cocoa, So Saffron, Bermuda Bay.
Accessories: Crystal Effects (101055), Scallop Edge Punch (112091), Bermuda Bay 1/2" Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon (115610).

Thanks for stopping by and have a happy day!
