CASE Study x 2

 I was so inspired by the Case Study challenge this week, that I made 2 cards!  I love using the Dylusion sprays because you never really know how they are going to come out (at least I don't anyway).  Sequins seem very trendy right now, so I had to go down and find some in my Kindergarten teaching materials stash.  Found some little stars, too.
The second card was made with the leftovers  pieces after I cut out some Lawn Fawn word bubbles.  I sponged over them like stencils with distress inks, and even got a little color blending.  It really has been a Kindergarten kind of day!
Check out all the great examples at CASE Study.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  If you leave a comment, I'll be sure to visit you back!

Party Time

I've had these party hats for a while, and thought they would work well with the sketch from
CAS(E) This Sketch.
I'm also linking up to Runway Inspired Stella McCartney
and the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge- Celebrate!

Make Lemonade!

Wow, we've been in the middle of a heat wave, and it has been intense!   I think I need an icy lemonade to cool down with.
This is a Lawn Fawn set, and I paper pieced the glass and pitcher.  Fun!

It's going in these challenges:
Lawnscaping Paper Piecing, Casology Cue Card- Cool, and Runway Inspired with this photo of a Stella McCartney dress.
I broke down this week and went out on a mission to buy an air conditioner for my craft room, because it was impossible to work in there.  When we arrived at Home Depot we had a hard time finding one, and finally came across a small pile of 4 air conditioners near a register.  Apparently there had been a huge pile of them there in the morning, and by noon they were almost cleaned out.  So glad I got one, what a difference it makes!

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you are staying cool!

Happy 4th!

Happy 4th of July!  We are sweltering in high humidity here, so I am trying to keep cool in my craft room.  I paired this cute little chick with the sparkler with my new Tim Holtz blueprint stamp to make a patriotic card.

 I used this color inspiration from Color Q with this sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.
I'm also adding to CASology Cue Card- Fireworks, and Simon Says Stamp-Patriotic.  Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you have time to leave a comment, I'll be sure to visit you back!

A Little Sunshine and WOYWW

I've been painting and stamping quite a bit this week.  The butterflies are going on cards to sell at a local gift shop and the tag is for Tag Tuesday.  I went with a bright sun on my tag because we have had such rainy, dreary weather for the last few weeks, I needed to see some sunshine!  At the top you can see  some new stamp sets that I haven't used yet, along with a Stamp-a-majig that I am using to practice 2 -step stamping. 
If you are wondering why I am showing you my workdesk, it's because it's Wednesday, and Julia over at Stamping Ground Blog is letting us show off our desks.  Check it out!

I'm linking my tag up to Simon Says Stamp and Show, where anything goes.

Thanks for stopping by!
