Another try at a CAS card--this time for PDCC & CASology. Most 3rd graders can color better than me, but today I actually used my COPICs (Y21 & BV00) to color this cute little Hero Arts butterfly--yah--simple is good! The sentiment is from the same older clear set called Happy Hello. I think this is the first time I've used these 2 stamps. Yellows are not really my color, but I have to say I love the PDCC color combo. At first I expected to use mostly the Lavender, but I'm actually really happy I decided to use my textured Buttercream colored cardstock for my "white space"--what do you think? I punched out the butterfly & matted it with a scrap cut with the smallest Spellbinders Lacey Circles die. Being CAS, I resisted the urge to add embellishments except for a spot of lavender Stickles on the antennas.
I had a wonderful surprise & honor on Saturday when Sally (Abbey's Attic) nominated me for my second Liebster award. This award was designed to promote blogs which have less than 200 followers. Once the award is accepted, the idea is to pay it forward to five other blogs you enjoy, encouraging others to visit, leave comments, and hopefully follow.
To accept the award:Thank the person who gave it to you and link back to their blog. Post the award on your blog. Give the award to five other bloggers who have less than 200 followers.
Write a comment on their blog letting them know they have been nominated.
I hope you'll check out Sally's wonderful work & her cute kitty cats as well as these 5 inspiring blogs with less than 100 followers:
Stacy, Sweethearts & Sweet Tarts--A fellow Oregonian (we gotta meet one of these days!) who shares heartwarming "mommy" stories, her wonderful decorating, views of our neck of the woods AND terrific crafting projects.
Jessi, OneCraftyMama--A fairly new friend I met through the new Muse Blog. She makes beautiful cards & took time to enter my 1 yr Blogiversary Challenge with a fabulous kraft canvas butterfly card.
Kristie, Kreative Kristie--Another blog I discovered through Muse. She nails every challenge she enters--"Kreative" is the perfect name for her blog.
Kim, Inky Kim Craft--Not sure how we found each other, but we seemed to just connect. She lives in England, her style is completely different than mine & I love seeing what she comes up with--lots of gorgeous elements.
Martha, Martha's Creations--We met through Flickr & now both have blogs. Anytime you need a little inspiration, just check out her fabulous tag cards--so professional no matter what style she chooses.
So many wonderful blogs--can't see them all, but maybe you can take time to check out these 5 ladies--you won't be disappointed!
