What's Up?

I've got a few CAS challenge cards to share today -  I've been away from the craft room for a bit with all the Easter Prep last week!

First here's a cute little 'hair raising' stamp from Picture Show for the CASology cue card  - UP - the What's Up stamp is from Hambo Stamps.  I drew the edge with a Fine Point Micron Pen.  I used the colors (red, yellow, blue) from the SCS Color challenge.

Up next is a card for three challenges -  Muse Challenge #11, Less is More - Scallops and 

I die cut the front with a Spellbinders Label 18the text and sending thanks stamps are from Waltzingmouse - they are stamped on the inside of the card- seen through the die cut-out on the front..  The big scallop edge was made with a punch from EK Success and the small scallop edge was made with a punch from SU.

My final card was made using  the CAS(E) this sketch
The stamp is from Papertrey Ink, and the cute polka dot mini bag is from Impress.  I tucked a Starbucks gift card inside it.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Fabulous cards, Julia! That hair-raising one is so unique and just plain funny!

Thanks for sharing your story about your dad teaching you how to make eggs with recycled Christmas cards ... I'd be so proud of one of my kids told stories like that of our traditions one day : )

Sorry that I didn't notice that all 3 of your lovely cards are in challenges that I comment on! I love the open window of your Muse design - taking the negative die cut through to the next level, literally! And your take on the CTS sketch is so clever with the polka dot bag, with a lovely surprise inside! Thanks for playing along this week!

Your cards are wonderful. Love those bold colours and how you created the window for the sentiment in the Muse card!

Oh my goodness. I literally laughed out loud when I saw the first card. The yellow card is so elegant and the window is fabulous. I love the design in the third card! It's amazing how different the three cards are, but they are all so perfect!

Absolutely busting with GLEE over the polka dot card!!! Just amazingly awesome. I still have some cute little yellow or green chevron bags that I did not know what to do with. I may have to make one like this for my card class!!!

The hair standing up on end, made me chuckle and grin, very cute. I had to show my 10 year old that one, he really like it too!

Have a great weekend!
