You Are...

Playing along with CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge today :)

Here's the sketch:


And here's my card:


One of my favorite hiking buddies, Abby, has a birthday coming up and this sentiment is so perfect for her! Over the years we've had some crazy, epic adventures together including Long's Peak, Conundrum Hot Springs and Mount Holy Cross.

Here she is doing her signature headstand on top of Mount Holy Cross last summer:


And here's me...right-side-up...hahaha!


I hope she gets a kick out of this card!

Enjoy your weekend!

Beer

 
Playing along with The Male Room Challenge.

Our neighbor friend, Luke, is a huge fan of craft beer. His birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks, so I made this card for him :)


I love these blueprint images by Tim Holtz! They're so fun and these ones in particular are perfect for guy cards :) I kept it super CAS and just added a bit of color to the stamped image using a couple of Zig Clean Color Brushes.

I really enjoyed making this card and can't wait to make some more cards using the other images in this set!

Thanks for visiting!

Birthday Wishes

Today I'm sharing a card I created using the current sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge :)

Here's the sketch:


And here's my take:


The Layer It - Daisy dies from Taylored Expressions are so sweet and look absolutely fabulous in just about every color of the rainbow :) Here I've used PTI's Lilac Grace layered on top of Royal Velvet (a rich purple color). I made the card base out of Lilac Grace cardstock, too. It's fun to have that surprise pop of color when the card is opened up. Thanks to my crafty friend Jen Timko for sharing that idea!

Hope you're having a great day!

Thanks for stopping by!

hi-ya!

 
Today I'm playing along with Seize The Birthday Challenge. I needed to make a card for my little hiking buddy (my friend's son) who's about to turn 7 in May :) He's a super active kiddo who loves snowboarding, hiking, riding dirt bikes, and karate. I thought Mama Elephant's Tiny Ninjas Stamp Set was the perfect fit:


Thanks for stopping by!
