Love You Forever

I am screaming in with less than an hour to go for submission of this card for a new challenge - Muse. The concept is a little different. Here are the details from the Muse blog:

This challenge is open to anyone. The only thing you need to do to become a member is make a card and submit it to one of our challenges. It would be great if you also placed the Muse member badge in the sidebar of your blog but this is not mandatory. It's also not mandatory to become a Guest Designer if you were to be invited in the future.

Here are the simple rules:

  • Use what you have in your stash, don't purchase anything new for your Muse cards.
  • Explain your interpretation of the Muse inspiration card in your post and link back to Muse. 
  • Provide supportive comments to at least 3 of your fellow member’s submissions. 
  • Vote for one of your fellow member's submissions that you find inspiring.
The focus of my interpretation was white embossing on white cardstock like the flowers and stems in the inspiration piece, and sponging with ink to add color.  I chose a hearts theme because it is the season, and I need a valentine for DH.  I also covered the card base with DP as above, and attasched my hearts and flourishes on a white panel. I love that look.

Thank you for stopping by today. I am looking forward to seeing the interpretations of this challenge over at Muse.

Blue Miss You

This week's CASology cue word brought the context of emotion to mind, although I am so NOT blue because after almost 2 months of no crafting, I made 2 cards in 24 hours! Woo Hoo! I thought of the phrase "blue without you" (hearing Elvis in my head), and that is how this card was born.  There is a french knot in the middle of the pillow.  I love that little touch!  Thank you for stopping by.  It's nice to be here.

Stamps are Paper Smooches Vogue Abode and Sentiment Sampler.

i adore you

I am so happy to finally have something to post.  It has been a long time! Work and Family has been keeping me hopping and I have not had a chance to get into my craft room.  This is my take on CTS#11. Stamps are Paper Smooches Good Gab. Thank you so much for stopping in after all this time.
