For all of you and not being badly hurt in the accident we were involved in on Friday, what a way to start out the holiday weekend right?! It all ended well as I had time to get some crafting in today
I am entering this one in the Mod Squad challenge of A Fruitful Harvest  because they are offering an awesome prize! 

I made my CAS card using a new set from Stampin Up,  For All Things which was perfect for this challenge.  I also used my go to set lately Gorgeous Grunge.

The sketch I used is this weeks at 
CAS(E) This Sketch

I hope y'all had a great Holiday weekend and time to craft.

Happy Labor Day

Happy Labor Day!
 I finally got to feeling better to stamp today so I made this one for a few challenges. To get the background on my card I tried something different. I have inked my embossing folders with ink and ran them through to give it a letterpress look, but this time I inked my folder up with versa mark ink and them ran it thru the cuttlebug and embossed it with white embossing powder.  I used a sketch from Crazy for CAS, the color combo from CAS on Sundays and then I think this card look pretty elegant so I am also entering it at Addicted to CAS for their luxury challenge.

Black, White plus 1 Color

Supply List:
Stamp: Flower Shop (Stampin Up)
Embossing folder: Lovely Lace (Stampin Up)

Song In My Heart

I am also sharing this one on A Scrap N Place blog today. 
I started with a Tempting Turquoise base and then stamped the music notes from the Love Notes set by CAS-ual Fridays  across a white piece of card stock to make my background. For the butterfly I used two different dies from Poppy stamps and the Heart Board Fri die from CAS-ual fridays.

Supply List:
Cardstock: Tempting Turquoise 
Stamp: Love Notes (CAS-ual Fridays)
Dies: Butterflies (Poppy Stamps)
Dies: Heart Board (CAS-ual Fridays)

Watercolor Garden

Another card made for a friend going through some tough times.  To make this card I started with a sheet of watercolor paper, stamped my image and embossed it with white embossing powder and then used my watercolor paints to color the image. I am also entering this one in the watercolor challenge at Crazy For CAS

Supply List:
Stamp: Corner Garden (Stampin Up)
Sentiment: Wplus9
Dies: Femme Frames (Mama Elephant)
White embossing powder

Little Angel

Made this one for a friend having a little girl and also for the Rock-A-Bye Baby challenge at CAS on Sunday.
I started out with a white card base and a stencil and sponged Pink Pirouette over it. I decided I wanted to make a shaker card and this sweet die from Papertrey Ink was a perfect  choice.

Supply List:
Die cut: Text Block Baby ( Papertrey Ink)
