CAS Notecards - Verve and CR84FN

Verve Week 3 and CR84FN narrow 

Hey there...how was your day?

Great day here....my day "off" is always a great day I have to say:-))

I had time for some creative play...first off I needed to restock my note cards...I go through a lot of these throughout the year....popping them in with cards I make, mail I send....that sort of thing. So I kept these clean and simple - very unlike me but they'll serve their purpose very well....

Simple Note Cards 
Stamps are from PTI's Turning A New Leaf set, Mega Mixed Messages and SU!'s Sweet Little Sentiments and Really Retro sets.

Next I have my card for Verve's Feb Week 3 Sketch....which looks like this....

VLVFeb11Week3Sketch 
I combined the sketch with the latest colours over at Mona's Create4Fun Colour Challenge...

CR84FN15 Graphic ...bright and beautiful aren't they:-)

So here's my card....

Play Date Cafe and Mercys Combo

PDCC52 narrow 
Hey there...how you doin'?

Thanks so much for heading over to the Aussie Scrap Source Blog and voting for my aqua/pink card....if you haven't done so yet there's still time.......Cheers!  :-))

I had so much fun with the Play Date Cafe Challenge from last week (and managed to pick up a Fab 4 blinkie too:-)) so thought I'd play again this week....couldn't resist this pretty combo of colours actually...what do you think?

PDCC52b 
Here is what I came up with....

PDCC52 main 
I used Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #96 for my layout which looks like this....

MTSC96_thumb2 

Cardstock:  Whisper White

Patterned Paper:  Kaisercraft Lush 6x6 paper pad; old text paper

Stamps:  SU! Upsy Daisy and PTI Mega Mixed Messages

Ink:  Cameo Coral; Pretty in Pink and Ruby Red

Embellishments: wire edged ribbon; American Crafts lemon brad; Kaisercraft pearl; Provo Craft Tiny Tags Die; Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Mist.

Tools: cuttlebug; hot glue gun.

PDCC52 close up 
I coloured up the piece of text paper with the SU! ink pads...rubbing them on a glass mat first, spraying over that with the Glimmer Mist and then placing my text paper on top and smooshing it down.

I thoroughly enjoyed this challenge....they seem to push me a little out of my comfort zone which is probably all good in the long run lol.

Alrighty I'm off...gotta start on the Xmas calendars x 2 this weekend....feeling the pinch as ususally I'm well underway by now...tsk tsk!

See you soon....
