Happy Friday, peeps! Yay, the weekend at last and maybe some sunny weather! My mojo has taken a vacation and all I can seem to come up with lately are CAS cards...not that that's bad, but I just can't seem to get into making more complex creations! SO, I have two cards today, the first is the card I made for all the men's birthdays at my church for the month of April, and I used the sketch from FMS:
I was sad that Guy Greetings was being retired; it was my go-to masculine set! I love the images and the font, so I decided to ink it up in some Tranquil Tide ink to coordinate with the True Gentlemen DSP:
It was easy to fussy-cut the antique car:
and since I was using my Stamparatus, I was able to stamp the sentiments fairly quickly with the moveable plate:
I had six to do, and it was a little "wobbly" by the time I did the sixth one, but it still worked fine! I just had to cut them into strips!
My next card is for the CAS(E) this Sketch sketch:
At church I saw a lady carrying a black polka-dotted tote bag with a strap that I can only describe as Crisp Cantaloupe! It was so cute! Since we don't have that color any longer, I used Peekaboo Peach along with some DSP from the Pick A Pattern line to make a congrats card to a new recruit:
I stamped the horizontal piece with the retiring Brushstrokes background stamp on the diagonal for a little additional interest. I hope the lighter orange shade doesn't make this look too "Halloween-ish", LOL! I fussy-cut the flower from Painted Harvest and added a sentiment from Colorful Seasons:
And on the inside, a sentiment from Beautiful Bouquet and another floral image:
I don't have any Cassidy pictures today, but I thought I would share a picture of my dad holding his newest great-grandson, Sawyer, on Easter:
He was quite content to sleep in Great-granddaddy's arms!! And notice the EAGLES green pacifier, LOL!! Enjoy your day and be blessed!
