Time Out #158...Reminder...Find Joy in the Ordinary





There is still time to play along with our current challenge at Time Out.  This week, we challenge you to be inspired by the words below...



We have chosen purple for this month because March 26 is Epilepsy Awareness Day and purple is the color of Epilepsy.  Our optional twist is friendship.  I have made a card using several different shades of purple, and I sent it to a dear friend who loves purple.  I used this cute mini scene of London from Mama Elephant Snow Globe Scenes, and populated it with a couple of purple mini pandas from Little Panda Agenda.





Please head over to Time Out to see more inspiration from our Design Team and Guest Designer. Our Guest Designer this week is Kavya, so please stop by her blog to see what she has created for this challenge. CAS-ual Fridays Stamps is our sponsor for this challenge.  Details for the prize are on the Time Out Challenge Blog.


This challenge will run another week.  I hope you will take some Time Out of your busy schedule to play along with us.

My Crafty Tuesday



I managed to get some crafting done today...Starting off with an interpretation of the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch #365.  I used a faux stitching die to mark the divided sections of the sketch.  I am also linking this card up at Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes.






The next three cards were inspired by the Stay Crafty with Hero #2:  Never Seen Ink challenge.  Honestly, I could work on this challenge for weeks, but for today, I just pulled out Color Layering Village and the kit from December, 2019 and made 3 cards.



I am also entering this card at AAA Cards #162: Made in Minutes.





I am also entering this card at Just Add Ink #498: Encouragement and at Addicted to CAS #181: Texture.






I am also entering this card at Seize the Birthday: Cards for Kids.




That's it for me today.  Please stay home and keep washing your hands!!

CASology Week #365...Kite



Hello and happy Tuesday. It's time for another challenge at CASology.   This week, our cue word is KITE.  I used a fun kite silhouette stamp from Mama Elephant as well as some sentiments from Simon Says Stamp Sending and Wishing stamps for my card.





Now it's your turn.  How does KITE inspire you?


As always, remember the following CAS guidelines when creating your design:
  1. One main image
  2. Lots of open space, uncluttered
  3. Limited layers & embellishments
  4. Quick & easy to recreate (Note: It may take a while to create a design you like, but once you have that design, making more should be a piece of cake!)

I hope you play along this week.

Please head on over to the CASology blog and gather some inspiration from our Guest Designer and the CASology design team.

2 Cards and a Bookmark



Popping in to share a few things I have made while under 'house arrest' in California.

First up, a card to celebrate happier times, which I hope will not be too long away.  I was inspired by the sketch at MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #482, Addicted to CAS #181: Texture, and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes.







Next up is a card inspired by the challenge at Just Add Ink #498:  Just add "E".  I made an Encouragement card, one of many I plan to make and send to friends in the coming days.


I am also entering this card at Addicted to Stamps and More #382: Make Your Mark, as I colored this stamp with colored pencils.


.


Last up is a bookmark I made using the Hero Arts Bookcase stamp.  The challenge at A Blog Named Hero is Anything But a Card, so it seemed fitting to make a bookmark with this fun stamp.  I took my inspiration for the colors from the inspiration photo at Just Us Girls #529.






Well, that's it for me today.  I'm almost done with the mystery/thriller 'The Woman in Cabin 10' and I must get back to it to see how it ends.

Encouragement


Hero Arts has a new challenge to make an encouragement card, and I decided to use one of my Monthly Hero kits (previously uninked) to play along.


I made 2 very similar cards from this kit, from March 2019.

Happy Birthday City



We are on complete lock down here in California.  I consider myself lucky to have my family under one roof, and very embarrassed to have only created 1 card so far.  I think anxiety has overtaken my mojo a bit.

Anywhere, here is my measly offering for today using an old wooden stamp by Hero Arts...



I am entering this card at the following challenges:

CAS(E) This Sketch #364
The Male Room #32: At My Grandfather's House  (both my grandfathers lived in New York)
AAA Cards #161:  Along the Edge
Addicted to Stamps & More #381: Anything Goes
Shopping Our Stash #416:  Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday Bird, Dogs and Cat



I finally found my mojo, and made 2 birthday cards for various challenges.

First up is this birthday card using an adorable flamingo from Paper Smooches Baby Birds stamps.  I also used the Blocks in Perspective stencil from Funky Fossil.  I am entering this card at Paper Smooches Animal Challenge, Freshly Made Sketches #427, CAS Colours & Sketches #362 and Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Stencil Fun.
