Step three: I then picked up the grid paper, with stencil attached, and fit it into a clipboard for blending.
Okay, I'm so excited to see what Jenny and the CAS Mix Up team has created, aren't you? See you there!? Thanks again, Jenny!
Hello, friends! It's time for another Playing Cards with Friends session. But before I introduce July's friend, allow me to introduce our newest bird-family members:
My July card-playing friend is Jen Shears, a wonderful friend, and card-maker, who blogs at Jen Shears Designs. Most often Jen can be found posting on Instagram @jen_shears where you'll be treated to very cute cards, but let me tell you - this girl has a green-thumb, too! Be sure to follow her there, I envy her cut-flower garden - and the friends and neighbors who receive her most wonderful bouquets!
When Jen accepted my invitation to play cards, I couldn't have been more happy to plan our Christmas in July theme with these parameters:
OKAY! With those three things in mind, I headed into my craft studio and completely forgot the last guideline: Limitless Layers!!! UGH! But it's too cute not to share, and there's always room for one more Christmas card, right?
I'm briefly interrupting my unplugged stay-cation to play cards with my friend Coni over at CAS Mix Up July 2021 - here's the fun theme Coni has chosen ...
Here's a little closeup...
Okay back to my regularly UNscheduled day! I'll be back soon!
P.S. Nearly forgot to add this one to the CAS Christmas Challenge, too! Thank you for the reminder Christine! xx
Hello again, my friends! Glad you stopped by - and hope you'll join us at The Flower Challenge this month as we find creative ways to add spots, or stripes to our floral designs!
I may have been the luckiest crafter in the world for this challenge - see if you agree... here's a closeup to help...
Stripes, and spots!
Which will you choose? Spots or Stripes? Either way, don't forget to add a flower! Let's go see what my teammates have chosen, shall we... The Flower Challenge crew always inspires me!
I'm normally not a rainbow and Unicorn kind of girl, but let me tell you... I just can't stop playing with this sweet wonky Rustic Rainbow from Waffle Flower! Good thing they keep having Challenges to use them again, and again! Thanks, ladies, for Week 3's inspiration!
