Split Coast Stampers CAS 292

Hello everyone it's my turn to host the Clean and Simple Challenge on Split Coast Stampers.  Come on over and join us for this weeks challenge.

Our state fair is happening this week!  And it's all about harvest.  From 4H grown fruits and vegetables to livestock the fair has everything you can think of and more! One of my favorite buildings is the horticulture building with all the gorgeous flowers.  And my second favorite thing is to see who was able to grow the biggest pumpkin.  And let me tell you they are BIG!  They have to move them with fork lifts and weigh well over 1000 pounds.  It's crazy.  So that is my inspiration for my card.  Can 't wait to see what you do!

Enablers List

Split Coast CAS 291

Happy beginning of the fabulous week everyone!  We are enjoying the Bloomsburg Fair this week. I just love the fair.  Lot's of food and we always see folks we only get to normally see at the fair.  Just a fun time to be had by all.  There is even a paper crafts exhibit.  

But I digress and could go on about the fair but I'm really here to share with you this weeks CAS challenge.  This weeks challenge is to case something from Brenda's gallery.  I chose this card because it combined two of my favorite colors. Pink and Green!  Isn't it lovely, and a perfect CAS card to case.   

And this is the card I made.  

If you would like to play along with the CAS challenge at Split Coast just stop on by this thread for more information.  Make a clean and simple card, then upload it to the gallery here.  If you would like to see what others have make for this challenge click here.  And if you would like to get email notices for the CAS challenges subscribe this thread.   

Have a great week!

Happy Tuesday!

I know so many of you are back to the routine of work and school, but I am just getting my vacation started here in Colorado.  I thought I would share with you the gorgeous sunset from last night.  It's just spectacular any time of the day here. 

 And morning and evening are just alive with the singing of humming birds.  I have never seen so many in one place.  I can just sit and watch them for hours.  I'm so glad I am up in the morning early so I get to see them welcome the sun. 

And the reason you might be visiting...yes I do have a card to share.  I made a card for Lee's friends who graciously aloud me to come to their reception.  Of course I didn't photograph it before leaving home so Lee put it on the dash of the car and snapped this shot.  I think it turned out pretty well for driving down the highway.

Have a wonderful first week of fall!  I have to save I am loving the weather we have been having so far.  I can't wait for the leaves to start changing.

Happy Labor Day!

What a fun week I'm having in Colorado with my amazingly, awesome sweet friend Lee! 
 Here we are just after I arrived.  

Yes we took a photo after 11 hours traveling!  But we were so excited we really didn't care.
Today we spent a little time stamping.  When you go to Lee's you have to spend time in her stamp room.  I haven't even started to look at all her fabulous stamps   But I did find one for the Poppy Sketch challenge.  Come on over and play along with the sketch and color palette.  So fun! And you get an awesome download to play with this week.
