My Guest Designer Niece, plus Amazing and Happy Birthday...Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge~Fluff, CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #169~Off the Edge

Hello,

Well, the cleaning/laundry/grocery shopping elves didn't make an appearance, sooooo....guess I'll have to tackle those tasks myself.  Maybe...

I have the honour of guest designing for the current Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge~Fluff, so I decided to add another duo to the previous twosome.


The first is inspired by the top left pillow (simplified) and


the second, to the floral's right. I used an oldie but goodie set from Annabelle stamps (sadly no longer in business) for my images here....need to remember to pull it out more often, as it has some cool designs.


My own guest designer - my sweet niece -  is making another appearance! Yayyy....

First, from her CARS colouring book....this gem! I especially love her rainbow flowers!


Second, the leprechaun she hand drew in school, following a step-by-step process. Wouldn't this make a fabulous St. Patrick's Day stamp?  He makes me smile with that big ol' grin he's sporting!


Time to decide whether to vacuum, do laundry, wash the floor or make cards....I think we know the likely winner from this list *grin*

  5. Gorgeous cards in blues, Carol! Love the CAS designs you've used for them, and I adore that die in your first card. But once again, your GD has outdone you. Her coloring page is magnificent, and her leprechaun is wonderful!!! Miss T. has some real talent....must run her the family! Oh, and btw...crafting/creating is waaaay more important than cleaning anything ever! Now if I could just get past that....hahaha. Miss you. Bev

  10. Your cards are fabulous, Carol. Love the blues you chose. The images though have wonderful lines. That flower is so pretty. The graphic design on the second is very striking! Love that coloring page done by your niece. Makes me smile really big. Then I saw the leprechan. Oh my...that is fabulous. Looks like he's dancing a jig and having a rollicking good time, too. Your niece is very talented and apparently follows directions very well. Thanks so much for sharing of her delightful projects. :)

  13. Two stunning cards...I love, love, love this deep, rich shade of 'graple'. Looks so good paired with tons of white space!

    Sorry pal, but...Tess's work stole my heart! Her coloring is AWESOME...specially love the rainbow flowers too. But her drawing of the leprechaun is absolutely amazing! I think I need to sign up for this step-by-step class!

    I'm guessing that vacuuming DIDN'T win out over crafting!

  16. Your cards are fabulous, Carol. I love those flowers with the peekaboo window almost as much as I love Ms T's rainbow ones. She's a talented little lady. I mean just look at that terrific leprechaun. It is indeed stamp worthy.
