CAS x 3


Today at SCS, the CAS challenge is to make tall, thin cards!  No problem! I managed to eke out three of them this morning while the baby was napping:


This is for a couple from our church who just had a baby!  Both the gingham and image are Cornish Heritage Farms.


Here’s a fun CAS card using the new Snow Much Fun set from SU!  Mr. Snowman is stamped on textured WW and colored with blender pens and reinkers. Isn’t that Lucky Limeade scarf cute?  He’s got a liberal sprinkling of snow in the form of Dazzling Diamonds as well:


And finally, a cute smaller thank you using some Technique Tuesdays and MFT stamps:


I wish my blues had matched a little better….this one was colored with Copics, not too much shading as it is one layer and I didn’t want it to bleed too much on the other side! 

We had a busy weekend; one event we attended was my niece’s graduation party.  Did I get any photos of my niece???? NOT ONE….where was my brain?  Did get a couple photos of family members and the baby, along with my SIL’s unbelievable backyard garden.  They live in Philadelphia, and we are country folk….so just driving to the city made me nervous!  Once we saw the flowers and trees in her backyard, we felt much more at home:





It was  a little overcast, so the vibrancy of the colors isn’t captured as well as it should have been---they were gorgeous!  And here is Miss Cassidy, sitting on Uncle Charlie’s lap, enjoying her pretzel:


Thanks for visiting today!

I love the cards, especially that snowman! I don't think I'd ever leave my backyard if it looked like that. Just beautiful.

Isn't funny how a snowman cards with sparkles just seems magical on a day like today! Just like photos of a garden in January! Thanks for inspiring us, all year 'round.

All three are simple "CAS-tastic"! I am especially enamored with that adorable snowman. The sparkly detail you added make me want that set even more now. Too cute! Thanks for the fun inspiration!

Wow LeAnne! What a feast for the eyes! I just don't know what to comment on first! The baby card is gorgeous with the gingham and that cute image and the little heart, love the snowman too and the last card is adorable with the fabulous birdhouse. Thank you for sharing!
