Today’s CAS79 challenge is gardens; I seem to use this CHF garden sentiment a lot, and pulled it out again for today. I have to admit, these are two REALLY CAS cards….if you’re looking for fancy schmancy, it’s not here. The first one has very little stamping, just the sentiment and Linen stamped over a digital image that was printed on some BG Porcelain paper:
The card base is Blushing Bride and the mat is BG Lily Kate. The digital image is from Karen’s Whimsy—a fun site! This will be a get-well card for my SIL. My next card is the total opposite of the above card and has no stamping at all, except the sentiment inside. My sister and I went yard saling on Saturday and she found me a musty-smelling 1961 reader full of Dick and Jane images….perfect for fun cardmaking! (Elise, are you reading this?) I looked through for a garden image and came up with this:
If you’re of a certain age, you’ll remember these images---and of course, haven’t we all run through a corn field in our Mary Janes and little red dress? OF COURSE!! Anyway, I mounted the illustration on some BG Recess paper, did a computer-generated sentiment and added a vintage button:
Poor Jane! Just look at the expression of terror on her face, being lost in the corn field:
Well, enough of teasing Jane….I haven’t quite decided to whom this card will go….I have a lot of friends and relatives who are “of that certain age” and I am sure one of them will appreciate my humor! Thanks for visiting today!!!
