Hello! While out and about in blogland, I happened upon a new challenge hosted Anna Kossakovskaya, one of my favorite card makers. (She is amazing!) It is called CASometry Challenge 2. Make 5 and the idea behind it is something I've been thinking about a lot lately. There are five stages to the challenge, and you have to make a CAS card for each stage using the same stamp set. Lately I've been feeling like I'm constantly enticed to buy the latest thing, but that I'm not really using the stamps I own like I should or that I'm not really reaching the creative potential each set has to offer. I love that Anna creative a challenge for something I've already been wanting to do! :)
And as always, I was short on time, so I pulled inspiration from a couple other challenges to help me out: Simon Says: Flowers (which helped me choose the stamp set I'll be using for the CASometry Challenge - Flourish by Concord and 9th) and CAS(E) this Sketch #171 for the layout.
Sadly it was a dark day for photos (lots of thunderstorms here), but I was so happy to have a few seconds to make a card and especially for challenges that I'm really excited about that I'm looking past the darkness of the photos...I hope you can, too. ;) Hope this week is a wonderful one for you!
