Crafty Sprouts Recap Hop

Hello Crafty Sprout Friends. We are here today to wrap up our Recap Event with a little mini blog hop where you will see new and favorite projects. Thank you to all of you that stopped by the CS blog to leave bloggy love. We hope we inspired you and shed new light on how to use your stamp sets. Today I will be showcasing a new and and 2 oldies/favorites.

You should be hopping over from Erika's blog (Mrs. Crafty Sprouts herself) where the hop is beginning.

For my first card, I'm featuring the Monster Kisses set (which is currently sold out but will return to the Crafty Sprouts shop soon). This set is versatille, which I love, because it can be used for your monster projects as well as valentine, friendship and boy cards. Talk about quadruple whammy!!

For my second card, I'm featuring the Are you Ready to Rock set. I'm a big Music lover and my music of choice is Rock, Alternative, etc. therefor this set is quite special for me. It's excellent for all your rock projects geared not only for the cool dudes in your life but also all the rockin chicks (that'd be me, lol).

For my last card, I'm featuring the Besties for Life set. I was inspired by the sentiment I used and the movie Bridesmaids. For those of that have seen this film know that these are some crazy friends and they would do anything for the bride (her character name escapes me right now).

It's a CAS Kind of Day

Sentiment: Besties for Life, Crafty Sprouts

Hi All. Im back with another CAS card. I really like creating this style for various reasons. But I think the one takes #1 place is that I dont need to fret over my DP/CS which believe me, it takes a while to sort through it all and decide on a stack. And then the placemement of it all, uggghh. Lol. But don't get me wrong, I do love and enjoy my little creations of labor and love that can take anywhere from several hours to days.

** On another note, my base is made from American Crafts CS. I love AC DP but I dont care for this CS. Its not as sturdy as I would like it and it's not a friend to stamping, let alone coloring. Just a little FYI :)**

I will be playing with:
CAS-ual Fridays - Chipboard (flowers)
Lily Pad Cards - Chipboard (flowers)
Charisma Cardz Challenge - Over the Rainbow. I used the colors of a rainbow as my inpiration.
Cute Card Thursday - What's New (Chipboard Flowers, CS)

Thanks for stopping by!!

You Cant Have a Rainbow without any Rain

Hello!! I'm here today to share a CAS card feauturing one of my new gorgeous Saturated Canary images, Let It Rain. I really heart this image because it can be used for various themes. It can be used as a care free image, which I love. It can also just be a gorgeous head shot. In my case, Im using it to convey that regardless of how much rain may come down on you, in the end it will all be ok. This is also the reason for my post title, a perfect sentiment from the Crafty Sprouts, Smile On set.   I just love this set because it has a lot of versatile happy sentiments.

I added the sentiment on the inside but I couldn't get a good picture. I shall try again tommorrow. I believe my camera wants to give up on me, which is a HUGE bummmer because my warranty just expired. Grrrrr. Lol. 

I will be playing with: Saturated Canary - #8Clean and SimpleCAS-ual Fridays - #34ChipboardCharisma Cardz - #52Over the Rainbow (I used the word Rainbow in my sentiment and I used different rainbow colors as my accents).  Lily Pad Cards - Chipboard**My chipboard is the big button originally from the Michaels dollar bin. However, I didnt like the print so I just used my cute scraps.**
See you again soon. Thanks for stopping by.

Happy 2012!

Happy 2012!! Wow I cant believe that 2011 is already over. It came and it went in a blink of an eye. In a way, that's a good thing because that meant it was time to say goodbye to all the bad things of 2011. I know I am not the only one that faced difficulties last year but they were some really rough moments mixed in with the good ones. Well I decided that I needed to say goodbye to all those rough moments and what better way than to do it in Las Vegas. Nothing says forget about it all like Sin City. Lol. So now it's time to start fresh and look forward to new things, beginnings and journeys.

Now that the holidays are over it's time to move on with the next one to follow, Valentine's Day. I created this set of A2 cards for that reason. However, I didn't want it to just be for that day so I left it without a sentiment and used VDay like colors. So if the recepient chooses, it can be used as a friendship card, thinking of you, thank you, hello, etc.

Thanks for stopping by!
I will be playing with:
FFC - Friday Spy Day #13 (Inspired by the Sketch) 
7 Kids College Fund - Try Something New (Miss Anya Lounge stamps are brand new to me)
Bearly Mine Challenge - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp - New Something (New to me TGF Stamps)
