CAS(E) This Sketch 242 - Happy Birthday!

Hello!

Happy 15th Birthday to my big girl! 15! I cannot believe it! My cute little baby has turned into a beautiful young woman seemingly overnight.

For her card I used this week's CAS(E) This Sketch as inspiration.
I used Altenew Beautiful Day stamps. Sentiment is Wplus9.
 Such a great sketch and the design team have made some beauties with it. :-)

Thanks for visiting!

Happy Little Stampers October Watercolour Challenge - Gold

Hello!

With the start of October begins the October Watercolour Challenge at Happy Little Stampers! This month's optional twist is GOLD. My card has a rainbow watercolour background, gold embossed peony, and then spritzed liberally with golden Smooch.
I used Altenew Beautiful Day stamps and Winsor & Newton Cotman watercolours.
I am betting our golden gallery this month is going to be absolutely fabulous!

Thank you for visiting me!

CAS(E) This Sketch 241 (Retro 23)

Hello!

We have a retro sketch this week at CAS(E) This Sketch! The sketch was originally used in challenge number 23. I have been playing along with CAS(E) This Sketch since the beginning and I did enter challenge 23 with this card. The sketch is still awesome and I enjoyed using it again. :-)
I used SU! Banner Blast stamps and the stampamajig got a good workout for this one. ;-)
I hope you're inspired to join in the fun!

Thanks for dropping by to visit.

Fusion - Sunshine on a Rainy Day

Hello!

It's time for a new challenge at Fusion! Our inspiration is one of my favourite themes - SUNSHINE! :-)
I used Mama Elephant So Breezy stamp set. It's been a while since I used this set and I still love it so much.
I have used both sketch and inspiration photo to make a Fusion card. I am really looking forward to seeing our gallery for this challenge, it's sure to be full of fun and happiness.

Thanks for visiting!

CAS(E) This Sketch 240

Hello!

I just realised that I have been missing in action for three whole weeks! I'm so sorry! My kids were finishing off the school term and super busy with their sports and music and my work went absolutely crazy, leaving me very little time for my favourite way to spend time... making cards and visiting my friends in blogland. I hope I'm back to regular programming, but life is still super-busy, so please forgive me if I drop off the radar every now and then. ;-)

I'm here today with my card for CAS(E) This Sketch, which kicks off my Christmas card frenzy for the end of the year.
I used Wplus9 Be Merry and Be Merry Florals stamps.
I love this sketch! I initially had visions of sparkly washi tape, but when I sat down at my desk I was drawn to the florals instead. Sparkly washi tape is still calling to me.

Thank you for visiting me. I've missed you!

Happy Little Stampers September Watercolour Challenge - Spritz

Hello!

It's September! My birthday month! Spring here in Australia! Yippee! I love September!

At Happy Little Stampers Watercolour Challenge this month we have the optional twist of "Spritz" and I have spritzed a gold and brown background for my little robin redbreast.
I used Stampin' Up! Best Birds stamps, Winsor & Newton Cottman watercolours, and gold Smooch. Dies are Mama Elephant.
I know that, as always, our gallery is going to be filled with beautifully watercoloured cards! I can't wait to see what you all make. :-)

Thanks for visiting me!

CAS(E) This Sketch 237 - Happy Father's Day

Hello!

It's time for a new CAS(E) This Sketch challenge and this week I've created a super-CAS card for Fathers' Day, which is this coming Sunday. I may have gone a little too CAS and in the wrong colour for my hubby, so I might still be heading back to make more Father's Day cards before Sunday morning. ;-) I do have a birthday party for my daughter this week-end also, so time is getting a bit tight!
I used PTI Round Repeats and PTI sentiment. I don't think I've actually used this particular Round Repeats stamp before. I love how it stamps and I might need to take it out again for some more cards, perhaps a full set!
This sketch is so cool. I have a few ideas still waiting to be tried with this one, a couple of them in rainbows.

Thanks for coming to visit me!
