Welcome to a new challenge at Addicted to Clean and Simple.
The super talented Ceal is our hostess. When I first read that she chose the
code word STITCHED the first thing that popped into my head was.. keep me in stitches...
however, I don't think that's what she meant,
so here's what I did:
Here's the inside:

4 1/4" square card
kraft cardstock 
sentiment from Kraftin' Kimmie -you're so cool stamp set
white embossing powder
sparkley white fiber from my stash
brown chalk
kraft cardstock
white cardstock
images from The Cat's pajamas 
white embossing powder
Thanks for looking.
I hope you can play along with us .

CASEing Lisa

I came across a birthday card that was just so perfect
I decided to CASE (copy & share everything)it.
I've been a fan of Lisa Addesa's for a long time.
You can find the card I'm talking about on her blog from March 20, 2014.

And here's what mine looks like:
 I also liked it before trimming off the balloons:
I figure to mail it I'll just use a slightly larger envelope.

This is what I did on the inside:
The balloon stamp came from W plus 9 -unforgettable stamp set.
The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions - another year older stamp set.

till' next time,

Welcome to the From The Heart Stamps September Blog Hop.

If you came from Cammy's Blog ,you're in the right place.
This month each design team member was assigned a 
randomly selected image to use.
Mine was Hold Tight Hugs.

I made a shaker card.  Here's a close up:
I filled the shaker with glitter shapes by Recollections (from Michael's)
 and some turquoise Baby Beads from Queen & Co.

I love the sentiment : life is full of ups and downs, Let's hold on tight!
So that's what we are all going to do right now...hold on tight !
Hugs to you all. 
We will be taking a break while Faith recovers.

Now hop on over to Imke's Blog
and see what she has created.

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

The hostess for this challenge is Sweet Kobylkin
 and she chose HARVEST as the code word.
I was excited that the new stamp I ordered from Lawn Fawn
 came in the mail in time to use on my card.  Here's how I used it:

Here's a closeup to better show the texture and dimension.
