Happy Saturday to all, I am starting my first day of Summer vacation and it is a hot one here in CA. No June gloom here, but then it is always a happy day when I get to play along with a fun card challenge with some new stamps...new to me, that is. I just bought PTI's Sweet Baby set from my very generous friend Kim (Cupcakes, Cards & Kim) who was very nice to split up some stamps and dies she had for sale. I have always loved the Sweet Baby set, but only had the dies to work with and now I have them all! This week's cue word for CASology #46 is Furry.
I immediately knew I wanted to use the sweet lion as my image and his "furriness" is his mane cut from brown felt. I also stamped a striped pattern using Waltzingmouse Cabin Plaid and also another plaid stripe from Offbeat Backgrounds. The base of the card is impressed with the linen and canvas impression plate from PTI, one of my most used impression plates. I love the subtle texture it adds to a CAS card. You still have one more day to play along with CASology this week, the challenge ends on Sunday, so start digging through your stash and find something furry to stamp!
Love this Cathy, the lion is setting on the stitched square perfectly and I love the plaid paper you made! I wish I had that set today, I need to make a shower card! Thank you so much for sharing with us this week at CASology!
Cathy, this is just wonderful. I love the color scheme, the plaid you made, your layout, and that friendly furry lion. This is a very sweet baby card...I am going to pin it--you never know when I might need a baby card.
LOve that background plaid ;)...
and it's perfect with this sweet little guy! :)
And YAY for summer break...
one week down...
and it was so humid earlier at the ballfield...I just knew it was like 110...
got in the car...
But we got some rain to cool it down...
I dread the 100 temp days that I know are coming! :(
Perfect card. I love the paper and colors here! Thanks for playing along at CASology this week!
Lovely baby card - love the texture of the 'fur'! Thanks so much for playing along with us at CASology this week!
Oh, you really rocked this baby card...so happy that my old stamps have a new home where they are loved. This is so sweet and your plaid is just amazing. Love your card!
Wonderful baby card! Love the felt mane and that gorgeous background and impressed panel! Just so sweet! :)
No one does a baby card like you Cathy! Each and every one I've ever seen you make just tickles and makes me smile! Love the addition of fabric and that plaid - (stamping envy here)!!
