Just stopping in with this beauty.   I just love the The Big, the Bold & the Happy set from Winnie & Walter!   Actually, I love ALL The Big, The Bold sets.....each and every one!  

Hope your weekend is off to a great start!

Anything Goes with CAS-ual Fridays

Well, it's Friday, folks!    Thought for the occasion I'd pull out some CAS-ual Fridays stamps, lol!

I wish I'd had time to photograph this in the daylight.   It's hard to capture embossing on vellum at 11 p.m....bummer!

I'm entering this in both the V's Sweet Idea's Anything Goes challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes.   I stamped the Lotsa Links chain with Hero Arts shadow inks and then colored a few of the links in with Distress Paint in Tarnished Brass.   The sentiment, from Shenanigans, was embossed in gold.   A few shiny star sequins finished the card off.

I hope everyone has an awesome Labor Day.   We are headed to the gorgeous Thousand Islands for the weekend.   I can't believe school starts next week - on a positive note, with the kids back in school I'll be able to get back into a more regular gym routine and on a more regular blogging schedule, lol!    Gotta live it up these last few days!   Have a good one....

Stretch Your Stamps 2 Homework

I signed up for Online Card Classes "Stretch Your Stamp 2" and have enjoyed every minute of it!   I'm super behind on the homework, though, and since the gallery is closing soon (tomorrow, I think), I figured I'd better pop in and post something quick!

This homework is from day one.    The technique of watercolor resist isn't a new one to me, but if I don't have encouragement to break out the watercolors, it doesn't usually happen.  Watercolor is so pretty, but it's not easy for me, that's for sure.  

In any case, from one background stamped panel, I was able to make four cards!   There's only three here, I still have one in the works.

I love how the middle card takes on a more manly vibe based on where I die cut the hello.  Losing the purple really worked wonders in this case!   I think that card is my favorite.    The cute little wood stars are from Pretty Pink Posh.   Love that open star!

I hope everyone taking the class has enjoyed it as much as me....I've been cruising the gallery, and there is so much to see!
