JUGS - Bring on the Shine

I'm playing along with a different challenge today, JUGS - Just Us Girls.  Their challenge:
 Here is my project:
The black layer was dry embossed with a Pine Branch folder, then highlighted with Inka Gold green and gold.  The Recollections sentiment was heat embossed with copper powder.  Both were matted on bright gold card stock.

I can't decide if I want to sing Connie Francis, The Go-Go's, or Thomas Rhett.  No matter what music you enjoy, time away is always enjoyed.  The Words 2 Craft By challenge uses this quote:

I enjoy time away doing nothing, and time away doing everything!!
 Repeat Impressions ship, Unity sentiment, stash map paper.  Last weekend, I was able to enjoy time with extended family, and bucket lists were a recurring discussion topic.  It was interesting that we shared many of the same dream destinations, despite 20+ year age difference.  Since our husbands are not good travelers, we decided that we should start doing these things without them.  First stop - Carnival in Rio, with a stop in Peru for Machu Picchu!!  These discussions were the inspiration for my project - let the adventures begin!!!  Join us at Words 2 Craft By!!

Watercolor Hello

I've been missing my Mom a lot lately, so I thought I would make a card in her favorite color.

Watercolor background, Lawn Fawn die cut Hello cut and layered 3x and highlighted with Wink of Stella.  Sharing this with the Less is More Anything But Stamps Challenge and Fusion Hello Challenge.  Come play along with us at Words 2 Craft By and show us how you define Liberty!!

Watt's Up?

I puled out a Technique Tuesday stamp set, some washi tape, and OWH sketch #108. 
This is a bit different from my usual, layered style.  The washi is applied directly to the card base, only the vertical strip is layered.  My fingers are twitching a bit, wanting to add more.  I will be strong!!  Sharing this with the Shopping Our Stash You Light Up My Life challenge (are you singing that song, too?), and the Always Playing With Paper black, white, and one other color challenge

Still time to play along with us at Words 2 Craft By Liberty challenge!!

Colored Card Base One Layer Card

This was a tough challenge from Less is More and AAA Cards.  For a layer-lover like me, this is really difficult for me.
Navy blue card base, paint blob by Your Next Stamp, white ink from Simon Says Stamp stamped multiple times with my MISTI, older SU! letter inked on top of the white.
