Welcome is the new code word at Addicted to CAS.

This challenge is hosted by the lovely Bhavana.
Here's my take on the code word:
 I immediately thought of this great sentiment from a stamp set 
I wanted to use the tiny houses to represent a neighborhood
but it was a  Memory box die and I didn't want to use it that way,
so I die cut it out of masking paper and used those tiny masks to 
make my neighborhood. 
After masking off the bottom of the card I sponged away!
 One of the great things about the distress inks is the way they react to water.
So. I dipped my hand in water and flicked my fingers and looking background!
I hope it inspires you to play along !

This week the Wednesday challenge 
at Simon Says Stamp is to make a card 
using things with wings.

I started by stamping the butterfly (from Inkadinkado)
and then added turquoise water color ..which when it reached the butterfly
made the ink run and it turned darker teal.
But, hey...I went with it . I didn't like the inside of the butterfly being darker,
so I went over the insides with my  signo uniball white pen.
To finish it I added a sentiment from paper smooches.
Lesson learned...wait for ink to really dry or better yet use embossed image!
Thanks for looking.

I found this great colorful dot paper in the Doodlebug 6x6 paper pad called hip hip hooray.

Hope you have time to float in your own inner tube with a drink in your hand!
Have fun!

Time for a new challenge at Addicted to Clean and Simple.

The hostess for this challenge is Deepti
 and she chose STRIPES as the code word.

After looking through every stripe paper in my stash,
I settled on this pretty pink diagonal stripe.
The Happy is a die from Whimsy Stamps. It's hard to tell, but I die cut 
three Happy's from black cardstock and layered them together to add a little dimension.
The Birthday was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black using the
mix mash stamp set from Happy Little Stampers ( sponsor for this challenge).
To finish it off I added  three enamel dots . Doodlebug calls these sprinkles and 
they come in a kabillion colors! I of course ,want them all!

Don't forget to link up your stripe card at the ATCAS blog.
You could win the prize of a $15 gift certificate from Happy Little Stampers!

Thanks for stopping by.
