Good Sunday Morning!
I hope everyone is happy and well today.
It is beautiful outside right now. I would be sitting on the deck drinking my coffee in the 68 degree weather if it were not for those nasty mosquitoes flying around :(( grr!!!
I have a very CAS card to share with you today.
This card was created using the digital sentiment "As for Me and My House"
At first, I was thinking, this is not going to work :(
The sentiment was too wide. Then I had the "hit forehead with hand" moment
It's a digi! They can be stretched or smooshed with the sizing squares or lines around it!
I did not want it to LOOK smooshed, so I took it to the level I thought it still looked pretty at.
You can do this to your sentiments and flowers and nonliving objects that can be smooshable without looking silly :) (if it is ok with the policy of the company you are purchasing from). I do not suggest smooshing animals or people. They would just look plain weird that way :D hehehe!
I added a cloud using a die cut from Papertrey inc (YAY I Finally remembered where it came from!! Go me!) The house was hand cut and trimmed from kraft card stock also from PTI. The green textured CS is from Bazzil. I added the little door from a kraft scrap piece. The design on the house and the grass is created using WASHI TAPE! I Am so excited to have gotten to use it. I was terrified of it to tell you the truth. I did not have any and a friend read a post about that and sent me some
((THANK YOU CATHERINE - TOC! you ROCK!!!)
It really was fun to use and not quite as intimidating as I got started. Although my hoarding wanted to take over. I promised her I would create a card for a challenge this week... and I almost missed it... but didn't :D so YAY ME~
I hope you all have a wonderful day!
