Casual Fridays (double OO)

RIP Nora Ephron:( 
Your talent, wit, and undeniable humor will be sorely missed.

I'm popping in today with a card for the new CAS-ual Friday challenge. Funny story...the first card I made for this challenge was pretty clever (I thought) but some other people weren't sure it would fly, and I think they were right! LOL. So I scrambled this one together at the last second.
And I have to admit to liking it *smile*

Your project this week has to use two circles!
And in case you couldn't tell by the DT's cards, we are sponsored by The Twinery this week:)

Link up your creation to the CAS-ual Friday blog for a chance to win an awesome prize pack! 
And be sure to check out our FB page every day throughout the week for even more inspiration!

CAS-ual Fridays (pink)

It's hotter than Hades here in the north east!!
Are you having a heat wave where you are?

Went super clean and and simple for this card...

The challenge is to use pink on your card this week at CAS-ual Fridays:)

I drew a U and then used an exacto knife to cut it out from a piece of textured Bazzill cardstock. Stamped "love" at the top, and added a mini rose, after popping it off my grey card base.

We are sponsored this week by The Ribbon Carousel!

Be sure to join us for this week's CAS-ual Friday challenge and see what you could win!

Sunny days...sweeping the clouds away

This was scheduled. *grumble* Blogger hates me...

Hi friends! Today is the last day of school for my kiddos and boy are they ever happy *smile*
I just know when they get off the bus they will be asking for vacations, camping, the beach, going to the creek, bike rides...*sigh* If only i didn't have to go to work all day! *chuckle*

This card is the epitome of summer. Sand, water, sun, blue skies, and SURFBOARDS!
Aren't they fun?

The surfboard trio stamp is this week's product spotlight at Denami, and is on sale all week! 
Combined with Sunny Days, and some Sand Waves, how can you go wrong?
Be sure to stop by the Denami Blog to see everyone's awesome samples using this sweet stamp!

Thanks for stopping by today, hope your summer is fun!

Sunday Sketch #16

Welcome! I'm posting this late because I completely forgot to schedule it, but better late than never, right? *smile*
This week's sketch at the 365 Cards Blog was a challenge for me. I couldn't make it work until I used my new stamp from DRS Designs:)

Here's the sketch:

I stamped the Silhouette Branch three times on glossy cardstock and embossed with clear e.p. before sponging ink all around. I really like how it turned out!
Be sure to check out DRS Designs. They have an amazing array of stamps in their online store!

Hope you'll join us for the Sunday Sketch this week! I'd love to see what you come up with!
Be sure to check out the rest of the DT for even more inspiration.

CAS-ual Fridays (clear)

Hello friends! Is anyone else ready for school to be out yet? *sigh* 
My boys are clamoring for summer to be here, and I'm so tired of telling them how many days of school are left EACH AND EVERY DAY! *chuckle*

Are you up for the newest CAS-ual Friday challenge?

Use vellum or clear cardstock on your project this week, for a chance at six awesome sets from Paper Smooches designed by, and courtesy of... 
Our very own, KAROLYN Loncon!!!!

That's right, Karolyn is giving away SIX BG stamp sets that she designed from Paper Smooches:) Isn't she a gem? I just {heart} her.
Stamps used on my card today are from The Crafts Meow. I love how that border punch is similar to the flower heads...neato:) I used Zing e.p to make the flowers stand out on the vellum.

I hope you'll join in on the fun this week at CAS-ual Fridays, and show us your project made with vellum or clear cardstock!

Going dotty

 TGIF right? *smile*

I love polka dots. 
Big ones, little ones, closely spaced or far apart, I like them all.
So this week's CAS-ual Friday challenge made me happy!

Let's see your spots!

I couldn't resist punching large spots from some Denami cardstock scraps, and stamping them with a polka dot BG stamp before laying them on my kraft base. The sentiment was added to the center because I was in the mood for balance! *chuckle* 

Our sponsor this week is Denami Design and they were so generous in supplying each DT member with stamps!

For amazing samples and fun inspiration, check out the CAS-ual Friday blog and be sure to link your "spotty/dotty" project up for a chance at a fabulous prize package!

Celebration Balloons

Hi friends. Is your life as hectic and crazy as mine right now? *smile*
Am hoping this carousel stops spinning soon so I can get off!

Today's card is for the Denami spotlight focused on the sentiment above.
I like using larger sentiments to really pack a punch if you KWIM. This one does just that!
I combined it with the Brushed Balloon, and the Star balloon which are also both on sale this week! *wink*
For the background I created fireworks using silver e.p. and the Starburst and Sparkles stamps. I love how it looks...is that un-cool to say? *shrug* Well, I do! lol
Other supplies include: twine from the classic pack silver e.p., and red and white cardstock from the Sweetheart pack.

Be sure to check out the Denami blog for lots of great samples using this awesome sentiment, and remember it's on sale for one week only!!!

Casual Fridays (bling)

Hi everyone!
I'm in a super good mood and hope it stays with me for a few days :) 

The glammed up card above is for this week's CAS-ual Friday challenge to BLING IT ON! *chuckle*

I used Copics to color large clear rhinestones an array of glitsy colors for this fun challenge, and adhered them to a thin strip of white CS so they would show up a bit better on the black base. Sentiment was embossed with white glimmer e.p (hard to see the shine), and I added a tiny swirl of clear gems above it.
Nothing too spectacular, but it's bold, makes a statement, and is still clean & simple! (CAS)

CAS-ual Fridays is sponsored by SimonSaysStamp again this week. 
They really have some incredible deals on all sorts of stuff, including some awesome bling, see HERE!

     Don't forget, this week we are looking for our next Guest Star Stamper! 
So put on your dancing shoes and get tapping away on your CAS blinged-up project!
 You might just be the next guest designer for CAS-ual Fridays!
