Ninjas and Succulents...CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge #224, Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge~Succulents, Just Us Girls Challenge #396~Die-cuts


So, it's 27C here (which is blazing hot for us...or rather, me) and I'm editing (one of my side gigs) a paper on the effects of global warming on glaciers in the Canadian Rockies (where I live). Hmmmm....

Anyway, taking a break from the reading to share two cards for CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge #224.

I'm well aware that my images are wayyyyyy bigger than those in the sketch, but if we're talking about the inspiration factor, that's totally 100%!  Love the trio of images, open to interpretation, and the sentiment placement. I think this may become a 'go to' sketch for a bunch more cards....

Here's my first ..guess who's getting this one? Yes, Mr. Nephew,who has, indeed, snuck (run, tumbled, giggled, wriggled...) his way into my heart! I'm sharing this at Cards in Envy~You're the Man challenge, even though my special guy is but 5 *grin* He's my little man!

NOTE:  Honoured and thrilled to be selected as In the Mailbox favourites at Cards in Envy.  Thank you sooooo much, Karen and Kristie!

A second one...for Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge~Succulents

Yes, big ol' images again, but I do love my cacti! As for my water-colouring...oh well. Still trying....

I have more succulent images to play with and I will, once I wrap up reading about the effects of climate change on glaciers (and yes, I believe global warming is real...and its powerful. And that's as political as I'll get *grin*)
