CAS Christmas August 2019

I was able to get another card done for CAS Christmas
Loll would like us to use glitter on our cards this month.  It is amazing that we have passed the half way mark until Christmas.  If you haven't started yet join us at CAS Christmas.

Still in the process of getting ready to move.  We have an offer pending and have been back and forth to Portland looking for homes.  The appraisal is being done tomorrow and the closing date if all goes well is August 28th.  So much is still up in the air and it is very stressful.
So I am sorry that I have not been able to make comments.  Will let everyone know when I am back to creating and commenting.  Soon I hope.....

Thanks for stopping by.

Seize the Birthday #171 Flowers

I was able to make another card today.  I noticed I was getting low on my birthday cards so made this for STB

Our "Topping" option this time is...
Memory Box Watching Bloom colored with Copics & PTI's Birthday Balloons
Nuvo drops & Sparkle on the flowers where a blob came out.  Ugh....
I always feel I get carried away with the Nuvo drops 

Thanks for stopping by.

CAS Watercolour July 2019 Bouquet of Flowers Special Event

Happy Birthday to one of the most beloved ladies in blogland.
We each were supplied a portion of blueberry cardstock (see story below) to create a birthday card for Darnell.

Happy, Happy Birthday, my friend.

Special Event
Please join us in celebrating Darnell's Birthday!!
One more part to this special event.
The team has made special cards for Darnell's birthday,
along with our Guest Designer Leslie,
and several Featured Designers (friends from the retreat).

During our retreat, Darnell (Dolly to us) was up early one morning
and decided she wanted some frozen blueberries.
Some how she spilled almost the whole, Costco-sized bag of
blueberries all over the floor.

Bonnie snapped these pictures.
See the swipe of blueberries on the right photo??  Dolly couldn't find a broom so she grabbed
a large piece of card stock to pick up the berries.  As they thawed, the blueberry juice
"smooshed" on the cardstock in a lovely design that looked perfect for card making.

Well, without Dolly knowing, we kept that piece of blueberry smoosh and cut it up.
Each Designer has used one piece in making Dolly's birthday cards. :)

Thanks for stopping by.

Seize the Birthday - Cover the Card

This is my last card as the Surprise Party Guest for the last two months.  Thank you so much Nancy for the honor.  It was so much fun. 
 I'm sorry I wasn't able to get around to commenting as I have had a houseful with the triplets and mom and dad as they are waiting for their house to close in Portland and their house here already closed.  In addition to that, I am in the process of putting my house on the market.  So my house is a disaster.  Lol...We are going to move down to Portland too as I don't want to miss one minute of the babies growing up, plus you all know my Bff, Colleen is down there too.  So it is a win, win for me.

The topping is to cover the card.

I used Altenew's Whimsical Flowers & Totally Tropical in CP inks.
The banner and sentiment are PTI's
