Back at work for three days and I am SO ready for a holiday. 'Nuff said! Technology...it's going to drive me ca-razy!
Tomorrow is the 'official first day when we gather for a 'meeting with the brass' to pump us up for the year. Coffee, snacks, a couple of hours of spiels. The best part: meeting up with some of my teaching pals...and we'll perform exactly like students, whispering when the superintendent is talking, writing notes (we won't text....promise), being a bit silly. Friday's a repeat of meetings with various departments then in the afternoon...off to visit my family! Yahoooo!
Right now, I'd like to introduce you to one of the newest members of my collection, all pretty in pink, nestled atop some delicate jungle leaves, and posing for CAS(E) this Sketch #137 (I adapted a bit...)
I'm also heading to the galleries at:

We've been living under a dense blanket of smoke since Sunday, due to the wildfires in BC and the US. At least we're safe from the actual flames, so as much as it makes my eyes itch and my throat dry, I consider us blessed. We still have our home...To all who are affected: my thoughts and prayers go out with you.
Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!
I can certainly see why you love this polka dotted winged Flamingo so much...he's amazing! Love how you placed him based on the sketch and your stenciled background is the perfect touch! Another fabulous card, Carol!
Lovely take on the sketch & so pretty on the stencilled background.
So pretty in pink, Carol ... your sweet polka dot winged flamingo is fabulous against that soft stencilled background! Stay safe, my friend! hugs, Anita :)
A fabulous CAS card Carol, a pretty background and a beautiful flamingo with the spotty wings""
Thanks so much for joining us with Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
Fab CAS card Carol....your flamingo is so beautiful strutting his/her spots in pride, and that great background...all comes together to make a fabulous card.....great design! Glad you are safe at least from the terrible fires...........keep it that way. xx
Giggling at your meeting antics, but not at your very, very pretty card, Carol! I can definitely see why you are a fan. I am inspired by all the ways you use your leaf stencil. I'm sorry you are affected by the smoke from the fires, too. We are getting the smoky haze in my neck of the woods as well. :( Hope they can get them out, soon and that Mother Nature gives them a break at some point! Good luck with work! And enjoy that time with your family. :)
Oh, I love this flamingo, too, Carol! It's one of my very favourite RC stamps! I love how you used it for the sketch -- it's perfect!
Such a fun flamingo and use of the sketch~
We had 2 days of bad smoke, but like you, no flames nearby. It is heartbreaking to watch the news. On a more cheerful note--enjoy your time with family (as if you couldn't!) & your card is totally delightful!
Oh I'm smitten, too! LOve that jazzy little background you've got there, as well... I've been thinking of you - slaving away - have a great holiday and visit with Mum...
...you enabler you! I have been eyeing up this fella for quite awhile as well! So far, I've resisted, but your gorgeous card has me adding the little rascal back into my shopping cart! The polka dot wing did it for me! Love the inked background - the leaves totally finish off the tropical look! Yep - Winners Circle!!!
This is as fabulous as can be! I am in love with your incredible flamingo, he is as wonderful as can be and sporting that polka dot wing, so stylish!
Your awesome background makes that flamingo look like the bell of the ball, Carol! I love it and think it will be another winner!! Hugs, Darnell
YAY!!!!!!! super cute, love that flamingo!
Pretty, pretty, pretty is your flamingo as well as your card! Also love the soft sponging and the b/w strip!
Have a great weekend with your family!
Love it! That background is awesome and the flamingo...to die for!
I absolutely LOVE this! The angled panel and colors and oh that flamingo is awesome! Thank you friend, for checking up on me and encouraging me to create and share. Blessings ;)

Great card again Miss C
I commented on the second flamingo posting first without knowing your absolute joy at having it in your stock. He is darling and I can see you making more and more fabulous cards with him, Carol.
Great use of the sketch and way to showcase that flamingo :)
That flamingo is just so beautiful, hey!!! Love the soft sponging and the B&W strip to have your flamingo really shine!!!! Beautiful, Carol!!!!!
Soper, super awesome and SO fun and perky!!!
The fires are frightening, aren't they?! We are just starting to come into our fire season and I confess that is one of the things I realllllly dislike about summer. I have the CFA app on my phone and it seems to buzz all day every day during summer. I'm usually well removed from the trouble zones so when the smoke blankets us it really highlights how bad the situation really is.
Your card is so great. I love the black, pink and white look as well. You totally nailed the sketch challenge.
