Insane Saturday

I am ending the month with totally insanity or very busy day on the blog.

Starting with my last Cardabilities Sketch #118 as a DT member.  It has been a year -- a very fast year -- filled with amazing sketches!  Thanks Karen for keeping me around.  I had an amazing time creating with your sketches for players.  You will see me as a player in the future.


While Karen made her sketch a long card, I flipped it and made it tall and skinny.  With the help of a clock embossing folder, leaves from PTI Turning a New Leaf [and dies] and a sentiment from Hero Arts, Essential Messages, this card is complete, and so is my term with Cardabilites.  I also entered this into the Time Out Challenge; Round the Clock.

Again, thanks much Karen.  I fully enjoyed creating with your sketches!

Now, it's your turn!  Pop on over to Cardabilities, check out the other DT's samples, and then, play along! We do love seeing all your creations.


Next up is Just Us Girls #282 - it's my week to Hostess and here is your inspiration photo:


[A little bigger image for you]


Such a trendy card. Shakers have definitely made a come back due since super fun sequins have hit blogland.  My thanks is Lawn Fawn.

Okay people - YOUR turn.  You absolutely have no excuse not to play along; there are tons of aspects of the photo you can choose from!  Just check out what the Team did!  See you over at Just Us Girls~


And finally, Addicted to CAS;
We are being sponsored by;


I went with using distress inks, along with another trendy trend, using die cuts and popping up.  My mother in law is having her 90th birthday in March and she loves purple.  I, in turn, love this card :).  I used PTI Big Favorites #12, along with images from Hot Off the Press, Flower Silhouettes.  My die cut numbers are also from PTI, By the Numbers.  Entered this into the Uniko Challenge; Birthday.

And, as usual, it is your time to join in.  What does distress mean to you?  Whatever it is, we can't wait to see your creation over at Addicted to CAS!


Thanks for stopping by~
