I love pairing up different stamp sets especially when I can mix the old with the new. I did this with the The Friday Mashup # 106 this week. I used a retired set and a current SU stamp set using the SU colors Sahara Sand, Perfect Plum, and Wisteria Wonder and mashed it up by sending it to someone special, my mom. Although it has layers, I feel it is CAS with the stamped image so I am sharing it with Addicted to CAS #11 FLOWER.

My sweet neighbor needed a Sympathy card so I used the Dynamic Duos #49 colors to create a loving note for her to share with her relative. The SU set is called You Are Loved, how appropriate to use for a card to show someone you care about their loss. The inside says ….to heal your heart.

I felt badly for this little elephant sitting on my shelf being neglected:( So, I pulled him out and put him in Freshly Made Sketches # 82 this week. This card was really hard to photograph- it looks sweet in real life, honest. The little hole punched circles on the scallop border made from the Rich Razzleberry CS don’t really show up in the photo but nicely finished off the card. I had my husband holding my light trying to capture the essence of the sponging and the colors and he said…”I don’t know about that elephant pooping out tickets.” At that moment, I thought maybe this card should just stay on my desk, not my blog…lol.
Oh, Justin Krieger, I had this card done yesterday to post in the morning- when I finished it- yours wasn’t posted. I guess we were thinking in the same way this week.

I used retrosketches # 59 to create this card for CASology’s # 40 cue word- WORD. I was also inspired by Marion Vagg’s MUSE Card #13 with the element of three across the top of her card with the sentiment underneath. THREE WORDS that I think the most important word(s) we need to use, and we all love to hear are -I love you! I try to make it a priority to tell my family members and friends often that I love them. With the sadness going on in the world today, we need to let others know they are loved.

I finally opened up my SU Pop Up Posies kit and my package of SU Doilies from the Spring 2013 catalog . The kit is really cute, and has all the colors Fab Friday # 16 asks for this week- did they know that? I added a little texture to the flowers and put the gorgeous button brad (that comes in the kit) in the middle. You could really do a lot with the elements but I just put together a simple card:
