MWT - Christmas In July

Hi Folks, I'm back with a card for Stars & Stamps Mid Week Throw Down found here.  It's  95 degrees here and so darn humid I'm having trouble even thinking of Christmas but here is what I came up with. This card is about as CAS as they get.
   I used SU's Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White.  My patterned paper is from my stash and I can't remember who it is by.  The sentiment is from a retired SU! set and the gold brads are also from SU!
I set out to make a CAS card, but I'm not totally happy with this one, so I'm hoping my Mojo makes an appearance soon and if it does, I'll try to make another Christmas card that I'm more pleased with.  Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and say Hello.    See you soon.

Stars & Stamps Challenges

I'm back after a week or so off.  Just no MoJo at all.  It's probably the hot, humid weather we have been having this past week.  Anyway, the ODBD Challenge for OWH this month is to make a card with "stitching" on it (real or faux).  I don't do stitching at all so I went with the faux version.
Here is my card.

I used a SNSS image and colored him with Copics.  It was cut out with Oval and Scallop ovals by Spell Binders.  The paper is from a mat pack I bought maybe 5 years ago at Michaels.  The sentiment is by A-Muse.  I dashed (stitched) around the sentiment piece and pierced all the way around the card.  I'm hoping this will pass for "stitching".  

My next card is for Stars & Stamps Sketch Challenge #180 found here. Here is the sketch
And here is my card.  
This card went together quickly for me.  The sentiment is by CC Rubber Stamps and I embossed my vertical strip with a SU Fancy Fan embossing folder.  Both papers were in my stash.  The green paper is more of a bright Lime color in real live.  I just added a couple of SU Night Of Navy brads to match the matting I used and I was done. 
I hope you all have a great evening and a terrific week ahead.  I'm off to spend some time with Hubby.  Haven't seen to much of him lately, as he has been working a lot of weird hours the past couple of weeks.  Hopefully I  will get back to card making on a more regular basis soon.    Thank you so much for popping in to say Hi.  I always enjoy the company.  See you all soon.
