CAS(E) This Sketch #79 and Other Stuff

Hello all!

Hope you all had a nice weekend.  It was cool, overcast and drizzly here, but I kind of like that kind of weather. It's better than hot by far :)

Anyway, I haven't done any challenges in a long time other than the ones for my design teams, but I kind of got the itch to do some over the weekend. I loved the sketch for CAS(E) This Sketch;


so I gave this one a try.


The flowers and leaf stamps and dies are from Papertrey Ink, the little Enjoy sentiment is from Verve, and I am sorry, but the papers are just little scraps out of my scrap drawer of unknown origin. 

I've also had a few other little piddling projects going on in the craft room lately. I've been playing with my Perler Beads a bit, and made a fun design to fit in a little frame that sits on my shadow box.


And yes, that La La Loopsy is mine! heheh!

I've also been playing with my clay. A couple of weekends ago, we took a little day trip to a town called Kimswick, where they have the largest Christmas store in Missouri! Oh my! :D Of course I had to stop, and it was lovely!! I bought an adorable little snow covered Christmas tree. It's only about two feet tall. On the way home, all I could think about was making tiny little clay ornaments for my precious little tree!


I'm so excited about them! I love making them even better than the big ones. I've always liked miniatures and tiny things though. I can't wait to see them on my tree! The only thing is that they are so small, it's taking me forever to fill up my tray to bake them!

So that's what I've been up to lately!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you all have a happy week!

Hugs,

Kay :)

  15. What a delicious post, Kay! First up, that beautiful card! What lovely colors you chose! Very soft and soothing with the lovely Enjoy in the middle of the flower...yes, I did enjoy looking at it very much! Then your little framed bead quilt square. That's what it looks like to me and I adore that you framed and display your work. I would smile every time I saw it. And those miniature ornaments. Wowza, girlfriend, they are spectacular! Your attention to detail is tremendous! You color selection for every type of craft you create is impeccable. You are in a word, an amazing artist! Big smiles and even bigger hugs! Oh and I agree with Barb, please share a photo of your tree with those minis on it when you can! :)
