Addicted to Stamps & CAS!

Hello friends!
Popping in this evening to let you know that a new challenge is up over at
(click the photo to check it out!)

So it's time for Team A to get their CAS on!
Here's what I've created for it:
I've used this really sweet doxie image from Newton's Nook called Holiday Hounds.
Mocca wanted to send a fellow doxie friend a get well card and so she's sending warm hugs over to him! :)  I've made this a one layer card, but I did add the red banner with the sentiment over top of it.  The sentiment comes from a SU! set.

I hardly ever color in different ways other than with my Copic markers, but after playing around with the new watercolors, I thought I would try my hand with my Primsa Colored Pencils with gamsol too.  I've seen people color over kraft card stock with it and wanted to try it out for myself as I've never done that.  I really like the results!  The gamsol really helps to blend in the pencils and I like that you can layer over top of the colors to blend too!

There is an awesome sponsor this week too!  Inspired by Stamping is giving away a $20.00 gift voucher to the winner!  So be sure to check out what the rest of the design team came up with for the challenge and I look forward to seeing your lovely CAS designs!! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

I know I've been MIA for a while but am having some back problems and can't really sit at the computer for more than about 10 minutes at a time. That severely limits my commenting time but I have been through all your posts since my last visit. Fabulous work, my friend.
