PPA311 and CTS183

Happy Saturday, peeps!  I am back from my wee vacation and have a CAS creation for you today!  This uses the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch and the colors from Pals Paper Arts:


It's a challenge to leave your craft room with new goodies sitting unused, so I put this Inky Antics stamp set to work as soon as I got home!  The background is from Gorgeous Grunge, and the rest is pretty simple: 

I did "cannibalize" my wee little birdie from the rest of the photopolymer stamp so that I could stamp him in a different color:

The set also comes with this lovely Bible verse:

Thanks for popping in today!

My MIL has decided to keep the park model RV she and my FIL had at a nice little community on the Elk River near the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland, so we took a couple days to rest and relax during my birthday week!  Here's a sunset view:

Since it was HOT HOT HOT, everybody jumped in the pool as soon as we got there!  Of course, I'll share more photos later!

And since I got so many lovely cards, I will be sharing them all with you over the next few days as well!  This cutie is from my friend Martha:

And this fun-fold one is from my friend in NJ, Doris:

It features a butterfly from a Godiva wrapper and a cute little bookmark inside!

Be sure to come back tomorrow for a new Paper Players challenge, too!  Enjoy your day!


  1. I missed your birthday!!!! Hope you had a wonderful one. I have been swamped with the grands and now three weekends in a row of stamp camps - not complaining though! We will be getting our vacation in a couple of weeks. Not sure if we will be south enough for a visit, but we will be bringing the boat back up to MA next season so maybe then! ~chris

  2. Oh, this is perfect! Super sweet take on the sketch!

  3. So nice that you had a mini birthday vacation! Happy bleated Leanne, I'm sure your were spoiled by your lovely family!! Pretty card, I love the sentiment!

  4. Happy Belated birthday! I'm glad you had time to get away and have some R&R! I like the soft look of your beautiful CAS card, and I also like the Godiva-foil butterfly on the card you received :)

  5. Belated birthday wishes to you, LeAnne and keep on celebrating!!

  6. What a lovely interpretation of the sketch LeAnne, and that sentiment is so perfect! Belated birthday wishes and thank you for sharing your happy photographs! Have a lovely Sunday! Hazel xx
