Another CAS card for Less Is More Tropical Fruit. This time I am using a cute bear image from Beccy’s Place, (his name is Stanley!) In the digi image, Stanley is holding a Christmas ornament. For this card, he is holding a fresh orange. To make it, I cut a circle from textured yellow paper, sponged with orange dye ink, then added shading and highlights with brown ink and a white gel pen (smudged.) Added a stem and a few leaves, a scrap of patterned paper, plus made up a cute sentiment inside and Stanley is sure to brighten someone’s day!

This month the free image from Beccy’s Place is a nice cabin scene. However, I wanted to highlight the outhouse, so used a framed cutout… and made a fun sentiment that I printed on my computer. Am figuring that one of my “old” friends will get a kick out of it! (Note- the sentiment on the front reads, "The REAL little house on the prairie." And the inside reads, "Happy birthday from someone else who remembers the 'good old days'.") Am entering it into Beccy's Place August challenge, plus, since it is a birthday card, I am also entering it into Simon Says Monday Challenge.

Have had this beautiful sentiment card for many years… in two sizes. Love the way it looks embossed. Add a simple bow and a charm and it’s good to go!
Cute Card Thursday- #489 Charms
I made a rainbow card last week by brayering rainbow ink on glossy cardstock. Brayered a few extra card bases for later use. Decided to see what it would look like if I splattered water on the inked portion and LOVED the result. For this card I wanted to use a martini sticker as the focal point. Decided to mute the colors a bit with a sheet of aqua colored acetate attached with clear photo corners. Decided to mute the sentiment by sliding it beneath the aqua acetate, too. So fun! (Note- I also provided a close up so that you can see the need splatters under the acetate. I'll be using this neat technique again!)
