Sending Thanks - Colour Me!


All my life I have lived in the Puget Sound Area.
One side of the Sound or the other.
I have ridden a ferry so many times that I still 
 try to stay romantic about it. 
The serene loveliness, the water and to see seals on buoys just
lounging in the afternoon.

This card is about life around here when I see family, 
or they see me
a ferry ride away........



To get a better idea about how much water
I live around, here is a map.
I live in Kirkland.
 At the top northern edge of Lake Washington.
If you drive South and go directly West .....Seattle is there, 
and directly West from 
that across the Sound is Bremerton, Silverdale, Poulsbo and Suquamish.
All childhood towns where I have lived.
I love it here.

The Beginning is Always Today - AAA Card Challenge

                                    
The Design Team on AAA cards 
are some super sweet gals!
More than a few pop in from time to time to say hello!  
A very talented team, that I really will make
 better efforts to join in
 their fun!

I first thought of this stamp, of course I wanted 
to go a little cheeky so I made the previous card on this blog first, then I settled in and pulled this stamp from its home 
and got to work.
Fast and easy, that is how I like them!

Maybe you have a square image stamp you can cut in 
4ths and play along too!!!
Check out  AAA Card (CAS) Challenge

FUSION July 17

Fusion - French Cupcakes!

WOW!
Another lovely FUSION, 

I loved the lavender shades and muted tones, 
though I amped up the yellows
I took the script from the pitcher and it is evident in the stamp
the punched flowers are the cupcake embellishments.
The embossing powder is Rangers 
distressed milled lavender.

I am looking forward to seeing what 
you come up with!



How to play:
1. Play with just the sketch challenge.
2. Play with just the inspiration photo challenge.
3. Or you can create FUSION by combining BOTH challenges into one card.
4. Use the challenge graphic and link back to Fusion in your post.
5. Please read the other considerations on the Our Rules Page before playing along.


CLICK here to Go to FUSION!!!
And if you can, when you check out other cards, 
DT or players, 
please leave a little lovin' hello! 
It means more than you know
 to brighten a day!

Clearly Besotted - I love everything about you

Clearly Besotted - I love everything about you

A coworker friend I have known for almost 20 years 
asked me to do a ballerina card
 for her grand baby girl.

I was frantic as I had a ballerina die, 
however it was adult.
I did have a Clearly Besotted wish list,
 and I plunged 
in and added the Twinkle Toes 
and set the order to go.

It arrived just in time to give her before Friday!
Hooray Clearly Besotted, less than 10 working days, 
I adore youu.


Supplies
Clearly Besotted  Twinkle Toes Die
Darice Clear Irredescent Sequins
Darice Embossing Folder
Chictags Sentiment Strip
Heidi Swapp DP

Since I saw Virginia Lu post the NEW Simon Says Wednesday on FB, 
I will add to that Gallery!!!

Another Congrats Virginia!!!

CASology - #104: Pet!

Another FUN CASology. 

This is where I try to keep it simple.

And another great weekend!  
We watched Scott's sister Paraglide off Pupu Point on Tiger Mountain in Issaquah.  
She had a great time.  We miss her already!!!
She flew back to Missouri Sunday.

I know I have used this stamp more than a few times before,
 it just means I LOVE it.
Don't be afraid to use them again and again....

When Conrad was little we watched Little Nemo about a milllion
times.  It was the only thing that would help him nap.
A great memory.

What does PET bring to mind for you?
