Just Us Girls #366 - Photo Inspiration

I love this cat - he is very cool.  That said, my card took a total different direction.  I was inspired by the black and yellow, and the orange of the pumpkin.

Plus, I had these images on my desk :).  [I love that it all came together].  I used MFT Wild Greenery, and CUTplorations Merry Christmas.

Your turn - come on over to JUGS #366, and play along.  There are many ways to be inspired by the photo.

Mod Squad Challenge

It's time for the Mod Squad Challenge.  This challenge is The Way We Were.  What this means, is you take one of your cards, and CASE it.  It's kind of fun being inspired by one of your own cards.

Here is my original card from September 2015.

And here is my CASE.  

I used the same set, Winter Friends, along with a sentiment from Festive Greetings.  I had fun making it a cute Christmas card.

Your turn.  I can't wait to see how you CASE your own card.  Come on over to Mod Squad Challenge, and show us.  There are some prizes available too!

STAMPlorations Inspirations #101

I found some challenges that I wanted to join in, and the STAMPlorations image and sentiment worked perfectly!

Addicted to CAS #99 - coffee, The Paper Players #317-leaf, Dies R Us #59 - Fall and the new challenge, CAS Watercolour October.  Edited to add in CASolgy Challenge; coffee.

For my card, I used STAMPlorations Anywhere There's Coffee, and Coffee Happy.  I used Brushos for my Spellbinders Leaf die cut.  I do love the vivid color against the white.

SCS Color Challenge #605

It's time for the SCS Color Challenge card. This week Karen has chosen 4 colors; Cherry Cobbler, Crushed Curry,  Garden Green, Pumpkin Pie, with a dessert of leaves.


Here is my card for the challenge;

I can't begin to tell you how long this card took me to make!  Or remake as I should say.  I started trying to water color the flowers - mud, I got mud!  These colors do not mix.  So plan B I just went with the colors, and used a s close to Crushed Curry as I had.  Bottom line?  I still do not like this card, but oh well.  I ran out of time.....

Come on over to the SCS Color Challenge #605, and show me up using the colors! Please! :)  
See you there....

Calling All Sistahs October Blog Hop

It's the 17th, and that means it is time for the monthly Calling All Sistahs Hop, [and your reminder too!]  Today marks the 1 year anniversary of Michelle's [owner of CAS-ual Fridays and creator of this hop] diagnosis of breast cancer. Fortunately, it was caught early, and she is now cancer free!  Today's hop is all about encouraging our fellow sistahs, and also a reminder to get your mammogram.

For this card, I am using the brand new release; Word Ribbon.  (It has been created to be used with the Ruffled Ribbon Fri Die.)  Another wonderful set for making cards, and sending them out to friends, or family members who have been diagnosed with this awful disease.  This set is available for purchase today.

To see the entire list of participants in today's hop [AND the amazing PRIZE], click HERE for the CAS-ual Fridays Blog.  Also, you can join in this hop!  Read about that too over on the blog.  Your next stop, HEATHER NORTH.

Meanwhile, don't forget that you can use my code VICKI2016, to receive a 15% discount on any CAS-ual Fridays purchases - including this set :).

Have fun hopping~

Just Us Girls #365 - Color Week

Fall is definitely here and these are the colors [I wish I could see on the trees] of the season.  You all that get the beautiful Fall colors are fortunate.  Here is Central Arizona, we aren't that lucky - we get brown.  Woo hoo - NOT. ;)

I at least get to see pretty cards made with these colors.  I used some Hero Arts leaves for my background, and a fun squirrel image I had in my stash.  I embossed in gold, sponged on Memento Bamboo Leaves, and stamped the sentiment in Rust.

Your turn - Come on over to JUGS #365 and play along in the Color Challenge.  Can't wait to see how you use the colors.

Thanks for stopping by~
