CAS Colours and Sketches Guestie!

Happy Tuesday, peeps!  I am excited to finally be able to share that I was asked to be a guest designer for CAS Colours and Sketches this month!  Of course I said "yes"!!  

Our first challenge of this month is a color one!  Check these out:

I knew right away what I wanted to do with these colors; I just received these fun stitched flower dies and they were perfect for the challenge:

I cut out an assortment and just fiddled around with them until I liked the placement.  The butterfly from Flying Home was a sweet little addition; I stamped it in Basic Black and colored it with SU markers:

I used a Stitched Hillside die from Lawn Fawn to create my "grass" and added "stems" and a sentiment from Paper Smooches' Needle Little Love!

I hope you'll play along with our color challenge this week!  Be sure to check out the blog to see all the delightful creations from the design team!

Just a few scenes from around my yard and on my walks!

A bluebird, sitting on Cassidy's swing....he and his mate are regulars in our yard!

My neighbors' stream and barn:

John's zucchini plants are getting big....honestly, with all the rain we've had, I think they grow 3-4" a day!

As I walked to the garden to pick some asparagus, the sky was filled with these wonderful clouds...I wish you could have seen them in person!

Thanks for popping by today...enjoy your day and be blessed!
