My second

This was the card I submitted for the second round of the CAS DT cast call.

I didn't make it to the final round :0(
But nevertheless I like my card a lot specially for what or who inspired me to make this card.
One of my very good friends send me an e-mail with a link to an article about one of her precious daughters, "Sophia". Sophia is a wonderful and special little girl in more than one way. You can read about her in here

Round 2

I am so so excited. I was chosen to be a semifinalist on the CAS DT search....woohoooo

This is my second time participating in the CAS DT search. Last time I was given a guest designner spot for the summer. Which was so awesome and an honor.

I'm trying again for a fix spot that last about 3 is hoping. But a guest spot will be just as cool.

The second round is about "fashion". We need to use designer paper to make our card and it doesn't need to have a fashion theme per se...... :0)

The search begins

The search for the fall CAS DT had begun.And I am once moretrying for a permanent DT spot (which is seasonal) or a guest designer spot again which would be just as awesome.
The theme in this first round is "Teacher's Pet" and it requires us to us at least one punch and of course keep it CAS. The interpretetion is been left open to our imagination and THE FUN BEGINS!!

Here is the card I made and submitted:

Stamps: Starving Artist stamps, say is hand generated by my oldest son.
Paper: Rusty orange, white, black and a piece of one my son's homework
Accesories: Brad, pop dots, circle scalloped punch, OMS, coloring pencils
Ink: Tim Holtz inks: tea dye, old paper, antique linen; memento black.


This week I'm the guest designer for the CAS81 challenge on SCS. The challenge is use kraft, turquoise and white on your card and keep it clean and simpple of course. Here is my card:


As often is the case my poor blog gets very neglected under "normal" circumstances. But during the summer it seems that things just get worse. With all the stuff going around (reading time at the library, tennis, swimming, playdates, etc) there is hardly anytime left for hanging around the puter.

I have been stamping here and there. Nothing much as is the case of almost all of my card [sad LOL ;0) ]
Just some thank you notes for the kiddos coaches and instructors. Here is a couple I made for the swimming instructors (girls)

And a few other card for the CAS challenges

and one for a friend who just had a baby boy:
