Just a quick post today. I'm getting ready for part of my family visiting for Memorial Day weekend. I'll get to be with two of my little munchkins/grands this weekend. I can hardly wait.

My card was made last week for the MIX68 challenge on Splitcoaststampers. The theme was reverse masking which I did to get my flower colored and stamped inside. I also did a mask over the flower so I could spray and use Distress paint around it.

I added a stencil and sentiment and that was it.

Stamps-Heartfelt Creations/Vintage Wildflower 2 , Inpsired by Stamping/Just Because, Stampendous/Sunrise Sunset
Paper-PTI white cardstock
Ink-Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories-Tim Holtz Distress Paint/Seedless Preserves and Wild Honey, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist/Dragonfly, Copics-R14, R17, R24, Dylusions Stencil/Alphabet Border (small-with designs),Ki Memories rhinestones

I think this is it for me until I post my CAS card next week. That will be the end of my time with the CAS DT on Splitcoaststampers.

Hope everyone has a good weekend.

A Day for a Sail

I hope your weekend included nicer weather than mine. It was nothing but clouds, rain, and cool weather until yesterday around 4:00 p.m. when the sun decided to shine. But, this week promises to be warmer and full of sunshine. I am so glad.

It's Monday and that means it is time for the CAS challenge on Splitcoaststampers. It is CAS #273 and the theme is water. I have a bit of water but just pretend that is an ocean full. :-) I love pretty, colorful sailboats so that is what I decided to use. It is colored with Copics and I just added some banners with the sentiment. 

You probably think CAS cards are just about all I make, but not true. I am very busy with other kinds that just don't get on my blog and won't for a while. They are my cards for the Splitcoaststampers Dirty Dozen. I may share some of those at a later date. I have so many.
