Can You Case It #122, A Sketch Challenge

Last day of school for my youngest was Friday and last day of work for me is Tuesday, May31!  WooHoo! I work in my school district. Let's get summer started!

I am so glad you took the time to pay me a visit.  This week we are having a sketch challenge at Can You Case It.  Here is the inspiration:

And here is my card I created for this challenge:

I found these die cut wood pieces from the Great Lakes Scrapbook Mega Meet I attended in Novi, Michigan over Mother's Day week-end.  They were at the Melissa Frances booth.  I painted them with dimensional paint (Art Anthology); The wine glass was also colored with a Copic marker.  The photo negative is from Collage Texte et Negatif (Carabelle Studio).  This was also picked up at the mega meet.  The line up of drinks and bottles and sentiment are from drink and cuss (Unity Stamp Co.).  Card was finished off with some gold sequins (Stampin' Up).  Inks are Blackberry Bliss, Old Olive, and Early Espresso (Stampin' Up).
Well, thanks again for visiting.  And, too, my United States friends, Happy Memorial Day!

Until next week,

Can You Case It #121, A Color Challenge

Welcome back crafty friends!  I hope you had a fabulous week.  This week CYCI is having a color challenge.  Check it out right here:
Initially I was going to use some Graphic 45 pattern paper along with coordinating embellishments and then I decided to go with a scribbly bird.  Isn't he the cutest?  He is one of four birds from the Scribbly Birds cling stamp set (Dina Wakley/Ranger).  The flower stamp is from the March 2015 Kit of the Month called Always Begin Again (Unity Stamp Co.).  The sentiment is from Hello, Lovely cling stamp set (Stampin' Up).  Pattern paper is Prima.  The bird was colored with an oil pastel (Prima).  Flowers were stamped in Dusty Concord (Tim Holtz/Ranger) and colored in with a Copic marker called Acacia.

Here's my card:

Thanks so much for visiting!  Check back next week for a sketch challenge.

Until next time,

Can You Case It #120, A Sketch Challenge

Welcome back friends!  So glad you took the time to visit.  I hope everyone has had an amazing week and is ready for what the upcoming week will bring.  I am sitting here posting this blog after celebrating my oldest son's 19th birthday.  I am stuffed from Chinese food and Dairy Queen ice cream cake (Oreo Blizzard).  Yummy!  He has always liked DQ's ice cream cakes; me not so much.  Apparently DQ has changed their recipe and I thought it was so good.  He said that he likes the old recipe better.  How's that for irony?

Can You Case It has a sketch challenge this week for us card makers.  Check it out right here:

Can You Case It #119, A Color Challenge

Happy Mother's Day!  Welcome crafty friends!  This week we have a wonderful color challenge at Can You Case It!  Check it out right here:

Here is my card; I really love how it turned out. 

I stumbled upon this gorgeous sunflower stamp (Stampin' Up) at a garage sale last summer.  And this is my first time inking it up.  Oh this stamp will be used plenty.  It's a is now one of my favorite stamps.  I really enjoyed painting it.  It was painted in Vegas Gold (Art Anthology).  I love this paint; gives so much dimension.  The center was colored with a Gathered Twigs marker (Ranger/Tim Holtz).  The sentiment is a stamp from the Beautiful is never perfect stamp set (Unity Stamp Co.).  Gold stripe paper and chipboard pennant is Teresa Collins.  The sentiment was stamped in Brilliant Blue (Stampin' Up).  Blue cardstock is Bazzill and heavy white cardstock is Darice. 

If you are a mom in the United States, I hope you have a fabulous Mother's Day.  Thanks for visiting my blog.

Until next week my friends...
