By or Under the Sea Challenge

We have a super fun challenge this week at Crafty Cardmakers - By or Under the Sea.  We are looking for your awesome designs featuring an underwater, coastal or beach scene.  
We have a wonderful sponsor this time,  Woodware Craft Collection.  I can't wait to see what you create!

I decided to use this sweet Phyllis Harris stamp, Best Day Includes You.

I used watercolors and framed this for my craft room.  This stamp reminded me of my little brother, Scott and me.  He was eight years younger than me.  Poor kid had to put up with 4 older sisters.  He passed away 2 years ago.  I miss him every day.

Please join in the fun.
Have a wonderful week!

"Time" Challenge at Crafty Cardmakers

Our new challenge at Crafty Cardmakers is "time".  Please interpret this as you wish, just let us know how it relates to time if not obvious.  

I struggled with this one.  I didn't really want to use a clock or watch and there are so many great quotes on time, I found myself at a loss of what to do.  Funny, I spent a lot of time trying to figure out what to do with this challenge and none that I was pleased with.  I had something in mind for quite a while and just couldn't make it work to my liking.  I found myself running low on "time" so I went through my stash of stuff and came up with this CAS card. 

This image is from Sassy Cheryl and just makes me smile.  I used an embossing folder on vellum to create the background and Hero Arts Snippets for the sentiment.  Last minute and not my favorite, but a wonderful reminder to us all to play more and enjoy our lives.  What a great way to spend our "time".

Have a lovely week!
