Had fun using my Whimsy Stamps set "Meowy Kiss-mas" to make a card for their current challenge, plus two CAS challenges, (Less is More Challenge and also the AAA "Celebrate" Challenge, too. Because… well… Christmas is the perfect reason to celebrate. Actually, since Christmas, my birthday, and wedding anniversary all fall within a week, there is a lot of celebrating going on that time of the year at the Asper house!)
I hadn't intended to add the white snowflakes to the light grey background. But… when I was done I noticed a small grey smudge on the left edge. Thought the white craft ink would cover it… and it did! Hope it still qualifies as CAS since the snowflakes are so very light?
Also, when I added the photo of the Meowy Kiss-mas set, I realized that I've only used this one kitten image from this set. Need to rectify that in the near future since ALL of the kittens are so adorable!

I am a bit of a coffee fiend, so was just natural that I'd make a coffee themed card for the current Simon Says Wednesday Challenge. This image, a freebie from freedeariedollsdigistamps.blogspot.com is a favorite of mine. The sentiment, printed off on my computer, is also a favorite of mine! And it is TRUTH!
Oh, and the background scene is cut from a magnetic memo pad (that is… I should say WAS… attached to my fridge.) It seemed the perfect fit for the dapper chef. However, it was a bit overpowering. A layer of my beloved vellum provided the solution to that problem!

The Stampscapes Lakeside Cove Large stamp (www.stampscapes.com/stamp) helped me to make a card to enter into the current color inspiration challenge at Calling All Sistas. I used black Memento ink to stamp the scene onto an upcycled calendar page. I love the beautiful and peaceful sunrise. Added some highlights with a white gel pen and finished it off with an encouraging sentiment embossed with black sparkle powder on a punched circle of vellum. Since the inside greeting reads, "And I'm so thankful you are in my life" I am also entering the card into the CAS-usal Fridays "Gratitude & Attitude" Challenge.
