So Long, Farewell, Auf Wiedersehen!, Goodbye

There's a  brand new blog hop going on over at House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge Blog.  One of the requirements is to make a Goodbye/Farewell card.   In addition, the Featured Stamper #173 challenge on SCS this week is the awesome CAS stamper, Emily.  Be sure to hop over and check out her fabulous gallery of CAS cards.
                                     
Sadly, I don't have a House Mouse stamp that would fit this challenge as I only have a couple; but I found this little Seed Shooter in my stash that I thought I could make work.  I used my JustRite Stampers lower case Times New Roman font for the sentiment.  Since I'm in CAS mode,  I decided to make this little guy the star and keep everything super simple.
Be sure to check out the DT samples on the House Mouse & Friends site.  There's some great inspiration there! And, don't forget Emily's gallery on SCS!!

Supplies:
Paper- Neenah Classic. Papertrey Leaf Green

Clean and Simple

 

I can't believe it!  I made it through the first two challenges for the CAS Summer DT on SplitcoastStampers.
Now there are 19 super talented ladies and me in the running for the next challenges.  Challenge 3 was to make a card using pop dots/dimensionals.  We also have the option of making two cards.  The theme is Summer/Amusement Park.
I have used this LO before...it's quick, easy.  I chose this bright Summer Sunrise from Papertrey to give it a summery feel.  Both the flower and the panel are popped up. 
Supplies:
Paper - Neenah Classic
Ink - Memorex, Copic markers
Stamps - Papertrey  Friends Til the End
Accessories - PTI Summer Sunrise ribbon, dimensionals

Here's my second card.   It also qualifies for the 4th challenge to make something moveable on your card.  The propellers on the airplane turn!  I just cut an extra set (ask me how many I cut before I got one to stay together!) of propellers and used a brad to make them turn.  Since texture is also a criteria I tried to add some extra on this one.  The clouds are heat embossed and popped up, the airplane is covered with Crystal Effects as well as embossed.  I dropped a teensy bit of embossing powder on the plane body to simulate dents...this pilot is no sissy!  The plane is cut out and popped on dimensionals as well. 

Our grandson's bedroom is decorated in these colors and theme.  My DH has always called our sons "Buddy" so the sentiment is special to me.

What do you think?

Supplies:
Paper - Neenah Classic, Papertrey
