Clean and Simple Monday and Art Show Photos

I'm sitting here trying to unthaw from the coldest windy weekend we've had this year.  Our normally warm S. Florida weather was sunny on Saturday but far from warm and Sunday was pretty much a washout with cloudy, windy and rainy skies.  I've got a few photos my DH took of our little space below.

First things first!  Today's CAS challenge on SCS is a Color Challenge (CAS92) - Soft pink, Old Olive, Kraft and White with Marina Mist as an option.  I don't have any Marina Mist so I looked it up and tried to match as close as I could. 

I used Karen's fabulous sketch from CAS89 - A Couple of Bulbs to make a very simple card.  (Of course I waited until the last minute!) The kraft layer is popped up on dimensionals.

                                      
Supply List:
Stamps - PTI Holiday Button bits
Paper - Neenah Classic White, PTI Kraft, SU Pirhouette Pink, Old Olive, (can't remember the name of the blue!)
Ink - SU Craft White, Versafine Black
Accessories - Sakura white gel pen, glitter pen, 1/2" punch

Ok, now here's a few photos of our space.  It was a lovely courtyard area flanked by oak trees all around and an awesome gift shop behind us.  I'm actually wearing the same winter coat I wore in MN so you have some idea how cold it is despite the bright sunshine.

                                    
You can tell by the tablecloths how hard the wind was blowing...some of the gusts were between 25-30 mph!  All day long the art canvases could be heard thumping to the ground when the gusts kicked up.  
This is me and my good friend, Gretchen.  Gretchen does awesome nature photography and has been accepted into several juried competitions.  Her beautiful photography is the backdrop for my humble paper art.

Thanks for dropping in!  I look forward to seeing your CAS cards this week. 


 
Pin It!

Outstanding CAS card Charlene...although I did have a little chuckle about the 25-30 mph winds...that is just a little breeze around here!
