Here is my entry for MFTWSC #138.  I colored, pieced, and cut out this cute a la mode holding a warm cup of tea.  I had fun picking out my mix of patterns!

A Challenge With Friends

I'm here today with a challenge I did with my friends Lisa and Jackie.  I challenged them to CASE the Stampin Up catalog.  It's one of my favorite things to do every time I get a new one, and this year was no exception!  I've done 8 of them so far this year, but I'll share just two.

This one is from page 105. I kept the colors basically the same as in the catty.  I stamped the text block from MFT's Pretty Poppies in midnight muse on the base, and added some paint splatters (MFT - Abstract Art) in sno cone. 
The arrows are from Jumbo Mod Borders (love!), and the mini hybrid heirloom rose is cut from pumpkin pie cardstock and dark orange felt. I added Leaf-filled Flourish in gray and sentiment in lucky limeade.

This next one comes from page 75.  I created a heart-shaped mask that I could stamp the woodgrain through.  The sentiment is from MFT,
as is the row of arrows (Right This Way).
Some rhinestones and strawberry slush hearts finish it off.

I can't wait to see what Lisa and Jackie have chosen to CASE!

MFT WSC #137

I really like this week's sketch, and I love how this came out!

My cluster of poppies is clear embossed on crisp cantaloupe cs, and the other colors I used are old olive, calypso coral, coastal cabana, and going gray.
I love love love the new birthday sentiment sets from MFT, I can't stop using them!
Thanks for stopping by.

MFT WSC #136

I made this for MFT's WSC #136.  This came together pretty quickly.
The background is stamped with the wood stamp from Western Backgrounds, and I used Primitive Pumpkins for my focal point. The sentiment is from On the Line.
Thanks for stopping by!

MFT WSC #135

I'm on track to complete all 52 of MFT's Wednesday Sketches again this year. They have made a change in how you link/upload your cards, so you'll be seeing more of them here instead of in my SCS gallery.
This is #135.
Thanks for stopping by!
