ATCAS #232 - Sympathy

Ready for another Addicted to CAS Challenge?  Of course, you are!  This fortnight we are asking for sympathy cards.

I thought I would use a brighter palette than I usually do to make this card a bit more cheerful than my typical sympathy cards.

Have a Tea-riffic Birthday

I couldn't resist joining in the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #135 Coffee, Tea and Treats as it was the perfect excuse to break out my as yet unused Tea-riffic Day set. I pulled in some LF oldies too.  I should use those trees more often--so cute.

I'm also entering this in Seize the Birthday #249 Faces - Human or Animal.  

Read more about my card and the Copics I used on the Doodlebugs WA blog!

BPD - Tropical Sympathy

I have a tropical sympathy card on the Birch Press Design blog.  Yes, tropical.  Sounds weird tho, I know, but it totally works.

ATCAS #231 - Layered

It's October so how could I not think of cozy scarves and layers of leaves when it comes to the latest Addicted to CAS Challenge #231 Layered.  

For additional layers, I paper pieced her hat and scarf as well as masked her and the squirrel to make the leaves appear behind. So cute!

SOSS #219 - D for Drunk

It's always a fun time over at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Challenge but even more so for #219 D for Drunk.  

I used a mod Ho Ho Ho along with a mod embossed background, pairing it with a fun cocktail. Tasty!

ATCAS #230 - Autumn

I colored up these cute kitties with Zigs then used a plaid stencil with Distress Oxides over them.  I didn't bother to mask because I'm lazy like that.  I mean, efficient!
