LawnFawnattics CASE Yourself challenge

Typically I'm all about getting inspiration from other people but every once in a while it's nice to look back through my own makes to get The Muse ready to roll.  That's what the LawnFawnattics challenge #49 is all about.  When I see CAS I think 'clean and simple', but when you add an E on the end it becomes 'copy and share'. 

Here's my new card:

And here's the old one:

I think my little dinosaur card will go to one of my little preschoolers.  Just can't go wrong with dinosaurs!

I hope you're enjoying the beginning of spring (or fall, if that's where you are) and thanks for stopping by!

Bird Lady and Her Little Friend

Hello there!

I've been feeling under the weather so watched a bunch of gelli print YouTube videos.  When I saw one about printing on tissue paper and then layering it I had to get busy creating.  That's what I used to make the background on my ATC for the latest Stampotique Designers Challenge, "Birds and Bees".

Thanks for stopping by!

Inspired by a Book, Movie or Song...

I have a very sweet, dear friend who I don't see nearly often enough...even though we live less than a mile apart!  Crazy.  I knew when I saw the Lawn Fawnatics challenge that I wanted to make a card for her.  Since we grew up in the same era I know she'd know the song this was inspired by, too. 

Can you guess which song it is?  Think back to the early 90's while you look at the following image...

Every time I see these super cute stamps from Lawn Fawn this song goes through my head.  "Baby Got Back" by Sir Mix-a-Lot!  Don't get me wrong, Margaret does not have a big butt and I doubt this song will play through her head when she sees this card, but I'm sure it WILL make her smile and my work here will be done.

In Absentia, but not really...

It seems that I tend to post mostly about challenges that I'm entering.  Since I've been creating, but mostly for swaps not challenges, I haven't been posting much.  Here's a peak at what I've been up to...

For a 'labels' swap.  I went for a milk crate look and used these vintage embellishments that have been in my stash forEVER.

Mail art for a 'decorate your envelope' swap.  It was required to cover the WHOLE envelope.  Love Salvador spray painting...  :) 

Phyllis!  ATC using fiber.  She's got embroidery floss for hair.

Steampunk ATC.  Love this waspy critter.

ATC using the white glue crackle paint technique.

Mystery item ATC.  I had to use items sent to me (book page, bird image, bubbles washi tape) on my ATC.

ATC Halloween Movie Series: Nightmare on Elm Street.  This is a series I'm hosting over on Swapbot.  Sadly, there aren't a lot of  Halloween movie fan ATC creators.  There's not much participation.

That's what I've been up to.  What have YOU been working on??
