Can You Case It #142



Here we are... Sunday Funday! Oh...how I have missed you :)

It has been a very long week! At least - it has felt like it...with big deadlines at work.... Christmas shopping stress (I find shopping malls way too "peopley" even on a good day!), and my hubby working day and night it seems like the weekend is gone with the blink of an eye and we begin another turn of the rat race again. I always use Sunday to recharge my batteries for the upcoming week...so today is going to be dedicated to spending quality time with my better half and catching up on a bit of R&R.

Sundays are ALSO the beginning of our fabulous 2-week challenge over at Can You Case It! - our amazing Design Team members love seeing what crafty goodness you create with our challenges! Here's another fantastic color challenge for you!


 Can You Case It

I went a little crazy with the shimmer on this one (used some Glimmer Mist) and the snowflakes are from the Frosted Medallions set from SU! I pulled out a Unity Stamp set called Believe In The Magic for that awesome silver embossed sentiment. That purple cardstock just SHINES! 

Check out the other Design Team cards for inspiration and link your beautiful creation to our challenge!

Atlantic Hearts #188


Welcome back!
This week, I have another action-packed schedule - I am gearing up for one of the final craft shows of the season, and I also have a lot of Christmas shopping to get finished - shopping for my grandson is my favourite part!

I also have THREE challenges this week that I am going to be sharing with you - up first is my creation for the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge

 Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge

This was such a fun sketch - I decided to create (surprise! ha) another Christmas card!

Here's the deets.....(all items are SU! unless specified)

Stamp:  Star of Light
Ink: Dapper Denim, Soft Sky
Paper: Gold foil, Vellum, Dapper Denim CS, Kraft CS, and Fancy Frost DSP (which is retiring, by the way!) 

I added a snowflake brad, and  small swirl of delicate gold thread for embellishment and sent this card on it's way to one of my favourite people! 
I hope they love it!

CYCI #141 - Sketch Challenge






Do you ever find that the SIMPLEST things can be the most challenging sometimes???
Well... for me (the "clean and simple Queen", as I claim) this challenge was absolutely  the hardest one I had to do in awhile!

But here it is!

I used SU! Cardstock for the base, and stamped the snowflake from the Tin of Tags stamp set in Real Red. I grabbed a piece of paper from the Echo Park "I Love Family" collection, which I got in the Simon Says Stamp November Card Kit,  and made some felted "ribbon" using some scraps of card stock in Real Red and Emerald Envy. And for that sentiment?? Well, I had a Project Life card that was still sitting on my desk from a previous craft session.... it just seemed to fit! 
A couple little enamel dots and that was all this clean and simple card needed! 

Be sure to join us - you now have 2 weeks to play along with Can You Case It!

Love, Peace n' Ink
