PS Hello

This card was inspired by a combination of this week's Paper Smooches Sparks Picture Perfect challenge 

in which we are inspired by this picture...

... and this week's CAS(E) this Sketch challenge which provided the perfect layout for my idea.

The paintbrush images from PS I Heart Art are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics. The sentiment is from PS Chilly Chums.

Thank you again for stopping by. It is rare that I post twice in one day. I really enjoyed being creative today. Therapy indeed.

Let Freedom Ring

This coming Thursday, July 4th, is a holiday here in the United States. Next to Thanksgiving, the Fourth of July is my favorite. It commemorates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence, which announced the separation of America from Great Britain. It is a day to celebrate the United States, its freedom, and to display patriotism and unity as a country. 

I used 3 challenges as inspiration to create this card. 

This week's CASology cue word immediately brought Independence Day celebrating to mind. (There are some really clever interpretations of the cue in the gallery for this challenge. Go take a look.)

I used Freshly Made Sketches #92 For my layout.

CAS-ual Fridays theme this week is "Hunger Games" - CFC107: Create a Clean And Simple project that features at least one arrow.  I used an arrow die from the MFT Die-namics collection - Accent it Labels and Tabs.

Stamped images are from Verve's American Hero. Images on the left are from one sheet of Authentique DP from their Glory collection.

Thank you very much for stopping in today. I really appreciate your visit.

I'm Impressed

Good Sunday afternoon! Squeaking in again with a creation for this week's Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge which is a Cool Shades challenge.  The images are from Paper Smooches Squeaky Clean and PTI Polka Dot Basics.

Hope you are having a wonderful day.  It's sunny and hot here in the Northeast. Perfect day to stay cool playing with cool shades!

What's Up?

This week's Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge is a Designer Draft. I love this little guy - he and the branch from which he is hanging are PS free digi images.
I created the cloud panel a while ago for another project that I never finished (story of my life these days).  It fit perfectly with this week's SPARKS challenge, so here it is.
