CAS Colours & Sketches #355 has a lovely sketch this week, and
 Crafty Sentiments challenge is to "Use Hearts"
The hearts die from Simon Says Stamp was cut three times and adhered each layer together for dimension.  The sentiment is from Gina K.  stamped with a CTMH ink.

Celebrate WWC256

Watercooler Wednesday challenge #256 is to celebrate Occasions.  As I am working on birthday cards for my P.E.O. sisters, there is a card I can share.  This uses a Sissix thinlit die I purchased Sunday.  I have had great fun using these half card panels.  The card stock is Nina 110#, with a panel of SU! paper from my stash, and the panel was cut from CTMH buttercup ( a color probably retired now).  The sentiment is from a Papertrey ink set.

                                                            Double Trouble Challenge #48 "Say Cheese" Something That Makes You Smile -                                                                            closes Sunday Feb 2nd

I had some fun using new to me Nuvo glitter powders.  I was only able to get two colors since many I wanted were out of stock. But these two seemed great for using on a background stamp from Simon Says Stamp that I heat embossed in white first.  Now, this card does not use the twist of 'cheese' - but sushi REALLY makes me smile. I love it, and miss the authentic sushi dinners with my son in Japan. The images (colored with Copics) and sentiment are from a wonderful Lawn Fawn set.  I had to fussy cut since I do not have the coordinating dies.  I added some white gel pen dots, and shimmer pen on parts of the sushi.
