JUGS #244 & ATCAS #40

Dual post today for my 2 Saturday Challenge teams.

We'll start with Just Us Girls #244 - a Sketch.
I used Hero Arts, Blossom III, and my new Simon Says, Flower Friend for the sentiment.

 
I'm entering this into Darnell's new fun challenge - NBUS Challenge [Never Been Used Before] and  into the Fusion Challenge.  

Are you inspired by the sketch?  Come on over to Just Us Girls and play along!

 
I also needed to make a card for Addicted to CAS; Transport.

 This is also a fairly new [to me] stamp set by Tim Holtz, The Journey.  I used the fun technique [via Jennifer McGuire], Ink Bleeding.  I sure am loving the effect, just the hint of color.  Another awesome card for my son's return home next month.

Now, pop on over to ATCAS, check out the Team's samples, and play along~  remember lots of white space.


Thanks for stopping by~
