Around the World

I've been lucky to have some stamping time this week.  I've got classes coming up again so it may be the last free stamping time for a week or so.  I sure have enjoyed it though.



I had the world image all stamped and sponged in my UFO (UnFinishedObjects) box.  I love finding homes for these tidbits.  In this case, I found home for two since the first one got lopped, mounted and photographed before I realized that I had the world upside down!  Fortunately I noticed it before I posted it!  And the culprit came off easily to be replaced with  something more correct.

Less is More is asking for Paper Piercing this week.  The mat around the world is pierced too.  You have to look really close to see that.  But on second thought, maybe you shouldn't look too close.

The CAS Challenge this week at SCS is a Featured Stamper.  Ceal, aka, simplybeautiful lends her wonderful gallery for inspiration this week.  This is Ceal's card that I chose to CASE.

The Technique Lovers Challenge at SCS is looking for circles this week.  One circle got lopped off, but there's still plenty more.  Especially if you count the little piercings.

Addicted to Stamps and More is asking for stamping on our cards this week.  The more the better.  Stamping is my favorite technique to use on cards.  I love playing with stamps and ink and markers and seeing how many different looks I can get.

Seize the Birthday is calling for masculine cards this week.  Here's the sketch Lesley gave us.

It's the same sketch as last week.  But last week was for the girls.  I was tickled to see that my entry last week won honorable mention.  Thanks ladies!

I just pulled this set out for the first time in ages, too, for my cards on pinkpaperbakery this week. I like yours better, and I love your layout. Inspired to have another go at the dreaded man-card! Thank you!

Donna Ellis said...

Beautiful design, Bonnie. What a great way of utilizing the sketch, while keeping it CAS - I never have much luck doing that. Your card is so inspiring, however, that I've pinned it. Maybe I can do something similar. Thanks for sharing the pretty colors, and amazing images!

Loll Thompson said...

Hi Bonnie. Congrats on your win at Addicted to CAS. Loll xx
