Follow Your Dreams...

My latest card is an easel.
Had fun with this one!
Loved digging out all my JustRite stamps and combining sets.
The challenge this month is "Wings".

The airplane stamp is from "Going Places Vintage",
the Carte Postale is from "Greetings from Paris",
and the sentiment, "Follow Your Dreams"
is part of the OLD, OLD set "All Occasion Nested Sentiments".
I heated embossed everything I could ink up,
and then carefully colored the plane with Copics markers.
The little airplane charm and metal gears are from Michael's,
and the paper is DCWV, "Cinnamon Luster" stack,
with the map background stamped with an old world map from
my very, very old stash.

I hadn't made an easel card in a long time, so I was feeling crafty! Also, I love to work with 6 x6 cards, so this worked as a SQUARE card also!
Let's just say, I really tore up my room for this one! LOL!
This terrific challenge can be found at
and goes until Wednesday, August 21st,
so you still have time to enter!

Another very CAS-ual Friday here!

Made this cute little mini album cover for the color challenge at
(Orange, Aqua, and Green)
It will hold the photos taken of my grandson's first day going to third grade at his new school!

It only has a handful of chipboard pages, but I only have a few photos, so perfect!

As is the rule with CAS-ual Fridays, they keep it clean and simple.
The eyes are washers that I heat embossed with "Aged Aqua Embossing Powder" from Stampendous. It is absolutely beautifully
AQUA, but hard to tell in the photo! I used the over-sized "bottle caps" for the rest of the eye. 

I will be adding a title when I decide on one!

Papers:  DCWV, "The Green Stack"
Twine for tassle:  Bazzill
