A Case of Two CAS

Happy "Hump Day" friends!  This post is up a bit late for me, but I had some things I wanted to get done this morning and didn't get to my craft room until the afternoon.

As a result, I quickly whipped up a couple of CAS (clean & simple) designs to hurry up and get them in some challenges that are ended very shortly!  So here we go...

I used some Kraft cardstock along with Twine for a CAS challenge called "Krafty Twinery".
Added the flower wasn't what I had in mind, but I think it works out!

Here are the challenges that I'd like to enter for this card:
CAS on Sunday - "Krafty Twinery"
Brown Sugar - anything goes
One Stop Craft - Make your Own Background
The Squirrel & The Fox - use Something Spooled
The Pink Elephant (TPE209) - monochromatic
Divas by Design - anything goes
Hambo Hoedown - stripes
The Crafter's Cafe - anything goes


And for my second creation, I've decided to pull out this really silly Flamingo image from Bugaboo and made a fun Summer scene with it:
I colored her in, cut her out and popped her out over my beach scene.  I made the background sky with some chalk brushed in different colors and punched out a circle for the sun.
I've also added some crystal effects on her sunglasses and some sparkle to the water drips.

Here are the challenges that I want to enter this card for:
Catch The Bug - Bingo! - I used:  Sparkle, Summer Image & Player's Choice
The Crazy Challenge - Summertime
Kaboodle Doodles - anything goes
Tuesday Throwdown - "Toes in the Sand" (Beach scene)
Crafty Creations - Summer
The Crafter's Cafe - anything goes
The Sisterhood of Crafters - "Bring on the Heat! (add a sun)

So that's it for me today and hopefully I have met the deadline for some of these challenges! LOL!
I will be back again tomorrow with another creation for ya!
Thanks so much for checking in today!
