Hey, Friend

Happy Saturday, peeps!  Another beautiful day here in PA, hopefully I can get outside once I get all my supplies cut for my upcoming stamp camp!  I managed to squeak in a little stamping time, just enough to finish a CAS card using Serene Garden and Itty Bitty Greetings:

I stamped the flowers in Soft Suede and colored them with Pumpkin Pie and Mint Macaron Blends; I stamped and embossed the sentiment in Craft White, cutting it out with a tag die and adding a pearl. It was then mounted with a piece of Grapefruit Grove DSP atop a Whisper White panel embossed with the Large Polka Dot embossing folder (retired).

I used the FMS sketch by Amy:

and a new-to-me challenge, Festive Friday:

#festivefridaychallenge, #FF0015, StampinUp, International Dot Day, Embossing Folder

I just love these little flowers!

Cassidy and I had a big card-making binge yesterday morning before going to the pool!  This one was for her four-year-old cousin who happens to love Paw Patrol!  She stamped the dog from Little Cuties, made it into a dalmatian, because he loves firemen, and she hand-drew a fire hat!  We cut out a couple word bubbles and she added her own sentiments and his name, diecut from Real Red and Daffodil Delight cardstocks:


His name is Marshall:

And on the inside, this guy is Rubble (get the "dig" sentiment?!!):

 I was really impressed with her creativity!  Thanks for popping by, enjoy your day and be blessed!

Two fantastic cards, LeAnne! Cassidy is following in your footsteps and isn't that fun! Enjoy the nice weather. We've had some of it too. I think today is the last of it then we're back to hot and humid. What a blessing to have a respite from that!

There was a lot of creativity unleashed (see what I did there) prior to pool time! Great fun for Cassidy and Grammy.

What a stunner! I adore this... it is so clean and crisp. The embossing folder a perfect choice.

Oh goodness is this ever sweet! I love every little thing about it LeAnne, especially those big embossed polk dots. Cassidy did a wonderful job with her Paw Patrol card!

Well, Cassidy's card could not be sweeter! Wonderful work and what a kind gift of the heart. I'm loving what you did with your card, of course! Just fabulous, as always! So glad you joined us this week at FMS!

Ann Schach said...

Oh my gosh! Two awesome cards! You know me...I am always a pushover for anything with a dog on it, so Cassidy's card is right up my alley. Your card is clean and simple perfection! I love the Pumpkin Pie flowers, and the single pearl which accents the sentiment. Thank you for joining us at Festive Friday!
