Don't know if you're aware, but there is some severe flooding going on up in Canada. One of our blog friends, C. let us know about it. She lives in Canmore, Alberta, and was/is trapped there by flood waters. Haven't heard from her in two days, so don't know what's going on there. Please pray for her, and all the people who are affected by these floods. If I hear more from her soon, I will post if she is unable to do so.
I've got two cards to share today. The first one is for CAS(E) this Sketch and is design by Jackie. It's so lovely. Very CAS.
I adore Jackie's work. And I'm so glad she shares with us!
I took a few liberties with the sketch, such as skewing the focal points, and adding a few do-dads to the white space, but I'm pretty sure it will still qualify within the CTS guidelines. It's another card for Marilyn, my sil, and I'm working a week ahead just in case it gets crazy around here as summers tend to do, and if I can't spend much time in the craft room, I'll have a spare on hand. Bazzill white base, pink and brown scraps, squeekquins colored on the reverse with brown Sharpie, a few MME enamel dots, two kinds of twine from the Twinery, and some legless brads from Snap Studio Simple Stories. That's it for the first card.
Next, I thought it might be fun to be different. The fun colors in the inspiration photo over at the TAWS Be Inspired Challenge would normally prompt me to go in the direction of July 4th, or summer picnics. But no. I went in a totally different direction. Here's why...You all know Ardyth, don't you? Brilliant woman. Amazing card maker. And a constant source of inspiration for me (and I'm sure for soooo many others!). Well, she posted a card. Not just a card. A Christmas card. I know, I know...it's only June. But she's on the DT over at Festive Friday and when I checked it out, well, had to find a way to play there too. Turns out, easy peasy, lemon squeezy! Here I go out of the box again. Another digi. Two, in fact! And both freebies from TAWS!!
And this is what I made:
It's got trees. It's got the colors from TAWS. And in my world, it's got cute! I don't make many Christmas cards. I quit sending them out several years ago, but DH will send them, so this will go into his stash. White Bazzill card base, both trees and sentiment are TAWS digis, scraps for everything else, a bit of twine from my "just can't toss it out yet, I might need this" ribbon and twine box, one enamel dot from MME, and the heart has a touch of glossy accents on it. Popped up trees. Well, I'll shut up now, but you all have a great weekend, and happy dances everyone.
