Designer's Choice Challenge - CAS CARD!!!

Good morning everyone!  Welcome to another What If? Wednesday from Repeat Impressions.
Today I got to choose the challenge for the group....
The Designer's Choice Challenge for this week is to 
This was truly a challenge for me because I rarely make CAS cards.
If you are unsure what a CAS card is; it means to create a Clean And Simple card.  Nothing elaborate or over the top with a lot of embellishments.
Here is the card I created for this challenge:                                              
The card is a standard A2 size card
I used two stamps from Repeat Impressions, Thanks for the lift (9105-G) and Hot Air Balloon Cluster (9116-N)
Copics used to color the balloons and the sky background are: BG49, BG18, BG13, BG34, RV19, YR38, R35, B000 and B00

I hope you head on over to Repeat Impressions Blog and get more inspiration from my fellow Rock Star's.

Take care everyone and try to see beauty in all you do today!  See you soon!

Happy Happy Birthday

Hello all my blogging and crafty friends!  Can you believe it is the first day in April?  Did you survive April Fool's day or did you get tricked?  Or perhaps you played some April Fool's pranks yourself.  It was the Cincinnati Reds Opening Day today; which in Cincinnati here is reason enough to take the day off work.  I honestly think that Cincinnati should just declare it a city holiday.  Unfortunately the Reds lost to the Angels 3-1.  

Onward to the cards I say!

I am still on a mission to create a bunch of Birthday cards.  I made three more the other day with some new paper I bought from a local scrapbook store.  These three cards are all similar and are created from the same sketch.

I absolutely fell in love with this paper collection from Three Bugs In A Rug called Bake Me A Cake.  I also used some Bella BLVD Birthday Girl papers.  Very cute I think!

This is a very short post because I need to get back to work a.k.a. creating more cards!  Be sure to stop in Wednesday for another Repeat Impressions What If? Wednesday Sketch Challenge!
Thank you so much for stopping by & I'll see you soon...
