Saturday Catch Up

As usual, I am catching myself up on  playing in my favorite challenges.  I just love week ends -- all that time to stamp! :)

First off - it has been 1 year since Less is More has hit blogland with a bang!  From the get go, these two Ladies, Chrissie and Mandi have had a hit.  So many stampers out in blogland just love making Clean and Simple cards, and I am one of them!  Their site is also filled with hints and techniques that work well with CAS cards.  If you haven't checked out this blog, I highly recommend that you do!  Meanwhile, the challenge today is AQUA.  Well - naturally this challenge more than screamed my name! :)
I am really have fun with my new Bosskut Gazelle.  I got these FREE Dual Hearts svg cuts from Shery K Designs.  Talk about lovely!  I adore stampers that share their knowledge and products with fellow stampers.  She has some great, free svg's!  I printed these on white paper and colored them with a copic for the AQUA challenge.  My Hero Arts Clear Design Treasure comes through again.  The perfect sentiment for these fun hearts.

Naturally, I also had to play in the One Layer Wednesday challenge.  This week is a BIRD.  I wanted to try centering on this card.  I don't usually do my CAS cards centered, but Susan this week gave a little tutorial on it, and I had to at least try. Normally, I suck at getting my images centered.  I think I did okay with this one. :)
Apparently, this is my blue week end.  I didn't mean to use blue on both, but it just happened. :)  I used the wonderful GKD stamp set By the Sea.  I guess the sea is what made me use blue - lol.

And, the last card for now is from the Inspirational Challenge over at SCS.  Gosh, it seems like I never get to play over at SCS hardly at all anymore!  I really need to get back into them!  Today's site was filled with beautiful inspiration!  I chose this photo; and then I found Jay Gee's Nook with such a perfect photo I had to edit this post and enter my card~


I used the fabulous images from GKD's Nature's Greetings.  Kind of perfect for a card from the inspiration huh? :)  Gotta love that.

Okay, my peeps, that is it for me today.  Off to catch up on commenting now...
Thanks for stopping by~
