CAS on Sunday #40 & Paper Crafting # 16 - Baby

Another card for 2 baby challenges
Rock a bye baby
This is only the second Shaker card I have made and I have decided it will probably be the last.  Too labor intensive for me.
I think it turned out pretty cute though.

CASology #109 Java

My card for CASology
My BFF, Colleen and I are not coffee drinkers.  She likes tea, I like wine.
Today, we went to Crafter's Warehouse here in Portland and then to Kohls and made a few purchases.  Had lunch out at California Pizza Kitchen and then came home to craft.

Avery Makes Another Card

My 8 year old granddaughter wanted to make another card before I head out to visit my BFF, Colleen in Portland, Or.
She likes Bold Bouquet in Raspberry Fizz.  
Sentiment is from Birthday Bash
and a flower from a miscellaneous stamp set.
Then she wanted it mounted on Hawaiian Shores Damask pattern paper.
We are putting it in my box to sell with my cards.

Muse #80 by Therese Calvird

This is only the second time this year entering Muse 
I love this card by Therese, so wanted to pretty much case it.  Although, she used Prisma pencils, it reminded me of the technique where I stamped the background stamp in PTI's Fresh Snow Ink, then used Pure Poppy for the outline color.  Leaves are Simply Chartreuse and Ripe Avocado.
The stamp set is WPlus 9 Coming Up Roses.
I used Circle Scribbles behind the sentiment.

The Challenge #12 Bright & happy

My card for The Challenge which I haven't played for a couple of weeks or so.
I used both the sketch and the colors for this card.
PTI's Circle Scribbles in Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores, Orange Zest and Harvest Gold
Clear Wink of Stella
This is only the second time I have used this stamp set.  It really is a little too abstract for me and out of my comfort zone so I'm not really loving it....
Oh, I get to post my card right next to my BFF....

Merry Monday #121 Pine Cones, Greens & Plaid Ribbon

My card for this week's Merry Monday 
PTI's Peaceful Pinecones in Ripe Avocado, Classic Kraft and Pure Poppy

Make It Monday #176 with Laura Bassen - Backgrounds with embossing paste.

My card for MIM
Made a stencil with 2 Quatrefoil die cuts.
PTI's Life is Beautiful in Berry Sorbet and Vellum.
Wonderful Words Thank you
PTI's Quatrefoil with Dreamweaver Pearlescent Embossing Paste in Berry Sorbet, Orange Zest, Summer Sunrise and Harvest Gold.
I have a house full today, my three granddaughters and son, so this was made in stages
My 8 year old granddaughter helped me mix the colors for the paste.  She worked on one while I did the other   She is the only one who seems to want to make cards and she is the youngest.  The other two just want to color images or play with all the gadgets.  So while we were letting it dry we all sat down and played Yatzee.  It is going to be 95 today, too hot to go outside.

So here is the  Birthday Card she made with Garden Grace and Butterfly Dreams in Berry Sorbet, Hawaiian Shores and Tropical Teal.
