CAS2- Day 3

 Yes...two posts in one day...yikes.

Hello, Wednesday was a busy day for me though I couldn't pinpoint my biggest time grabber if I tried. By the time I got around to working on my Homework, it was about 2 am...I had decided to put it off until Thursday, but then I got what I thought was a second was just a case of the slap-happies. You know that time when everything is funny and you are as brilliant as can be?

I have no border-stamps.  Wait, I have a tub full of magazine freebie stamps...and I found a cute little chain of daisies that could work...IF I lived in the land of Liliputians.  But when you have a case of the slap-happies... 

I made two mini cards following the lessons.  I admit to closely copying the lesson cards.  

Card One  has color gradations using 3 ink pads, this took two attempts for the colors to work as they should according to our lesson.  We also received a tip on making paper bows...TIP---at 2 am fingers don't work to well on small objects.

Card two was born around 2:45 am...I loved the idea of using blank address labels for part of the pattern.  Where I got inventive...(again 2 am was the coloring of white pearls with my pointy tipped sharpies and the round color dots...made with round foam adhesive dots...the super tiny ones stuck to the end of a pencil.

Hopefully you have had a laugh today.
Thanks for visiting.

Hi, Cat!

Your cards are SO lovely! Did I read that correctly...they are "mini" cards?? If so, that makes them even more DARLING! (I mini cards.) Love your creativity on the blue one - great design & details!

So sorry I haven't been around much, lately! My computer has been acting up.

Have a wonderful day!
Happy crafting!
