A CAS Christmas Card

Today starts the newest Can You Digi It? Challenge and it is "Clean and Simple."

I use to run when someone said CAS, but now I love it. It is a challenge for me though as I love me some layers and paper and embellishments. CAS is super easy when you have a great image and some awesome paper which I just happened to have.

I used one of the Christmas Ornaments out of the LilyPink Christmas Baubles set and layered it on top of some of my favorite Walk on the Wild Side Digi Paper from Green Goddess Creations. To make the circles pop a bit, I colored them with a light Copic Marker and then I covered the outline of one of the circles with some Zva Crystals out of the Crystal Wheel which is still unbelivably priced at $3.50 for a ton of crystals in various colors.

I still have a bunch of Christmas cards to finish up so I totally love this challenge! I need a few birthday cards as well so I may make this a CAS weekend coming up.

If you are celebrating Thanksgiving, I hope your plans are all falling into place and things are going well. I am so looking forward to some Fried Turkey!



  1. What a cool ornament, Nancy. I do love CAS cards and they're so fun to make.

  2. Oh, back to say things really turned around over the weekend..Roll Tide! We have given away our Iron Bowl tickets...won't be able to attend. Hope things go well for my side. Ha

  4. Nancy,
    Can I just say I love, love this ornament!! I think there is a bit of "walk on the wild side" in all of us. I love the pretty DP you've used and how you embellished the DP as well! Beautiful and elegant card!

  6. I love that ornament! This is such an eye catching CAS card. Great work!

  7. Very funky! Once again, thanks for bringing out the best of my digis :) Would never have thought to use that great paper for this image but it looks amazing!

  8. How cute this is. You know this is very popular here in SE GA and NE Fl due to the Jacksonville Jaguars. We love our animal print here. This is just so fun and fabulous. Let me take this opportunity before I get wrapped up in the Holiday festivites to wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving. When I count my blessings I count our friendship as something to be so thankful for. Love you!
    Bear Hugs,

Forest Goodies and Other Projects

 Hello Crafty Friends. I just got the Stamperia Forest Paper and Die Cuts in the mail so I had to play with them right away.   I have a combo creation - journal page and card.  On the journal page I used my 6x6 Dina Wakley Journal and laid a base of gesso.  I then used Dina's pastel crayons and some SU! inks and stamps.  Also added in some TH Dress Ink in Vintage Photo since I don't know how to make anything without it  (seriously).   The eagle is a Stamperia Forest die cut and is coated with gesso.  Did a bit of stenciling and distressing to finish the page off.  I am linking this the the **Art*Journal*Journey* September Texture Theme (last day - can't wait to see what October's Theme will be).  The die cut and the little smears add texture to the already very textured page.   I love the blue and green together and was inspired to made a quick card for my Son-in-law who cut down some tree limbs for us the other day.  The paper in the middle is from the Stamperia Forest

A Martini, Peanut Butter Cupakes, and Art

Hello Friends. Today, I have an ecletic mix of drinks, dessert, and art. First, it's T-day somewhere in the world so time for a drink post which I am linking to Elizabeth's Blog - Altered Book Lover.  Last week we had a work related dinner.  When the waitress asked what I wanted to drink, I had a sudden craving for a martini.  I use to love them, but I guess my tastes have changed because I wasn't a fan.  I was a fan of the chips and dips though! And the day before, I brought my Sister's fabulous peanut butter cupcakes.  Mainly because I was craving them and couldn't ask her to make just one..... Over at **Art*Journal*Journey* Elle picked a theme of Books, Cats, and Tea (you can pick one, two or three of the items).  I did a Bible Journal Page in my Journaling Bible - Luke 13:24-25.  After a layer of Gesso, I took a Sharpie pen and drew the kitty, then the narrow door, and then colored the door with Arteza Brush pens. The verse was written with a Micron pen.  This

Milkshake Malt Porter and a Bit of Art

 Hello friends and Happy T-day. It has been hit or miss with me lately on T-day posts. The remodel of our house next door has taken our mental and physical energy.  I think a few more weeks and things will be on the contractor instead of us.  Hopefully I will be back to normal by then. My Oldest Darling Daughter asked if we wanted to come for dinner Saturday.  Translation:  go to the store with me and we will bring part of dinner to your house and you cook the rest.  While at the store, I saw one 6 pack of this fun milkshake porter so, of course, I bought it.  It smells wonderful (a hint of chocolate and a hit of malt) and has a light creamy taste.  I would definitely buy it again if I see it.  My son-in-law did not like it, but he is more a  Miller Lite fan.  Now if this had been a whiskey, he would have been all over it.  LOL.  Linking this to Elizabeth's blog for the T-party gang. Darling Daughter had tried her hand at dried pintos, and she rocked them (I will begging for a rep
