SCS CAS 200th Challenge Party

Happy Saturday Blogger friends!  Hope you are having as much fun as I am today.  I have been playing in my stamping place!

The CAS Team at Split Coast Stampers is throwing a party to celebrate their 200th challenge!!  This virtual party began at noon today, with 5 challenges being issued.I am going to try to get all 5 challenges done...stay tuned..we will see..The first one was "Glitz and Glamour".  We were to bring something glittzy or glamourous to the party.  I chose to bring my little shichon doggy, Marli.  She got all dressed up for the occasion. Here is what she looks like!

She has glitter a result so do I!  Hope you enjoy my little party animal.  I will post as I go for the rest of the challenges..later work to do!

HELLO Blogger friends.  I know it has been awhile since I have posted, but life just gets in the way sometimes.  However, I still create often because it centers and relaxes me...I just don't always have the time to blog about it!
However, I will share the creations from this week.  I have always followed and appreciated a site called Splitcoast Stampers.  Since I always gravitate toward Clean and Simple designs for my cards, I have frequently followed the CAS Monday challenge on this site.  Right now, they are looking for a new CAS Winter Design Team, and have started the challenge process this week.  I am honored to say, that I have made it to the top ten semifinalists!!   Woot! Woot!  Let me get you up to date.

The theme of this search was HOLIDAY MOVIE PARTY.  The first challenge was to make a card that showcased your favorite song from a Holiday movie.  I decided to do a medley of 3 of my favs..."Let it Snow", "White Christmas", and "Frosty the Snowman".  This is the card I submitted...

The second challenge was to make a card using one of three sketches that were derived from Holiday CDs...This was the sketch given from the "Night Before Christmas".
The card I made for this challenge was incorporating the basic layout of the swirl and square...I had a wreath stamp from Hero Arts that I loved but had never used...itswirled around....the pointsettias that were in the set became the other part of the sketch...this is that submission:
After this round was over, I found out that I had made it to the top ten, and would go on to the next and final round.  This challenge was to make a card showing something you would eat or drink at the "HOLIDAY MOVIE PARTY".  Fun Fun challenge.  I started looking at my stamp stash and had several set aside, but this image just was too perfect....and my became the center of my 3rd submission.

Although it is hard to see, IRL this is a very glittery, shiny, Holiday glitzed up card...very CAS, but full of partytime fun.  I LOVE how this little mouse is looking up adoringly at his gal....could he look more happy or content?  NOT!  That is why I chose this image...I want to spend my most special Holiday moments with those I love...for movie night, good food, cocktails, or game does not matter...It is what the whole season is and friends...right?

Wish me luck on the Winter CAS DT search...I will keep you posted. 
Happy Sunday, and guess what...23 more days until Christmas!!  God Bless!
