CASology Week #104



I'm back! Or, at least, trying anyway. Ha! Last week, I spent a couple of days catching up around the house after our vacation and then a couple of days to "play" with the kiddos, and THEN we went back out of town for a couple of days! Phew. You know my books aren't going to read themselves and these crafty addictions aren't going to complete themselves! :) I need more time to "play"! :)

I definitely wanted to play along with CASology this week since the cue card is Pets! I love pets and I love animal stamps. LOVE!

I have been playing with my new stash of CTMH goodies I received this weekend while I was gone. I LOVE the new Cuddly Salutations stamp set that will be available with the new catalog August 1st for hostesses of parties. :) It's so cute. I made 3 little square cards last night which I intend to be part of a set and hope to share in a later post.
Here is my fun little card:
My card base is a piece of Soft Stone cardstock (PTI) and I used remnants of my Dream Pop CTMH paper from last summer. I never did do it justice so I'm pulling it out now determined to make some cute sets with it! I stamped the sentiment on patterned paper from the same set and trimmed it out. The birdie was stamped directly onto the panel and colored with Spectrum Noir markers. Since he's so tiny, I didn't get into shading but colored solid. I used a light gray marker to create his little shadow on the ground. I finished it off by outlining the accent panel with a journaling pen.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
God Bless,
