Believe. Dream. Achieve.

Happy Monday morning. I'm popping in quickly before I head off to work to share a trio of cards I made yesterday.  I'm finishing off card sets and have a few things to celebrate with others so it was a busy day of crafting yesterday!  

First up is avery CAS card for my sister-in-law, Elizabeth. She just received a promotion to CEO of a large real estate development firm. She works super hard and is amazing. So thrilled for her. This one is being entered in the CASology gray challenge. Love this gold and gray background and I thought the sentiment was perfect for her.

Next up is a graduation card for a co-worker who completed his under grad degree this week. He's been taking classes at night for quite some time so this is an awesome accomplishment!  Played along with the current CAS(e) this Sketch for this one. Love having these challenges to quickly inspire me!

Last but certainly not least is a card for the Muse Challenge.  Loved Tracey's CAS one-layer beauty and I was in need of a few more Christmas cards. to get ready for the work day!  Hope you all have a fabulous week!

Thank You So Much

In addition to the sympathy card I shared yesterday, I also made several of these thank you cards.  During the Black Friday sale, I picked up a few new goodies from Lil Inkers and from Concord & 9th. I was anxious to get the Concord & 9th stamps inked up!  Love this branches set - so many different cards you can make with this!  For my first card using it, I played along with the CAS(E) this Sketch.  Love using these non-traditional colors!

Hope your week is off to a great start!

With Sympathy

Happy Sunday my friends. I know I say this every year, but I'm not sure how we are two weeks away from Christmas again!  I'm traveling for work this week, so am feeling even more rushed!  Lots to be done before Santa arrives at our house.  But!  I sneak in some crafting today. Trying to finish up the card sets my mum asked me to do for her friends.  So this sympathy card was made in multiples to put in the sets.

It was inspired by Anita's gorgeous card over at Muse this week. I love using challenges to jump start my crafting!

Missing You Always

Excuse the shadows on my photo...but that's what happen when you craft and then don't have daylight to grab a photo!  Had fun using up some sentiments I had stamped at my crafting weekend and added the flowers to play along with the CAS(e) this Sketch.  I love floral I am sure you all know!  Hope you are sneaking in some crafty time this week too!
