CASology #7 ~ Thanks!

Hello sweet blogging friends! I have a happy little card today celebrating the color green! That's right...CASology has given us a new cue card and the word of the day is green. I'm celebrating the fact that our lawn is once again green. We have a few brown and crunchy spots left, but for the most part we have green grass. The soft kind perfect for my little pup to lounge in, the kind for bunnies to sneak under our fence and munch on, the kind that needs mowed (ugh!) and the kind for dragonflies to float about landing on tall blades peeking the interest of my curious little Max ~ silly pup!

A quick and simple card starting with my PTI: mat stack 5 stamped onto a white card base with new leaf ink. My dragonfly is missing the name label, I've had it for an eternity. It's stamped in new leaf as well with glittery wings and a touch on his little stripey body; then popped up with foam dots. The tiny thanks sentiment is Stamps by Judith. I added a few gems to accent the sparkle of the glitter. Hope it doesn't take away from the CAS look too much! I thought I was finished at this point, but it look naked! So I die cut a PTI heart border and voila...done!


Wishing you a delightful day ~Lisa

Love this card Lisa, that dragonfly is so cute wherever it came from. I think the heart border in white in a lovely accent.

Hi Lisa. You know I love Stamps by Judith, and the dragonfly is just perfect for your card. Very pretty , love the bling and your hearts. Glad your getting some green and soft lawn. I did a bit of gardening this morning and ended up jumping in the pool .

LOVE that fresh shade of green on all that white- I'll have to look into that - I've never bought PTI ink although I've got some of their sampler packs of cardstock. Thanks so much for playing along with CASology this week!

That's a really cute dragonfly Lisa! I think this is perfect for the challenge! (Thanks for popping by my neglected blog, I really appreciate it. Sorry that I have been absent but my life is a tad chaotic right now. Hence I wake up at 2am and am now visiting some inspirational blogs like yours!)
