this is happiness

hello *yawn*

after having monday off, i feel like it's got to at least be thursday...but alas, it's wednesday! ha ha! sometimes short work weeks are the longest! lol!

well, today i'm sharing a really fun card i made for the most current CAS(E) this sketch challenge! i LOVE the sketches of this challenge, and this one is no exception!

so FUN!!

so here's my take:

i used create a smile stamps for my card! i just LOVE that sleepy kitty from the comfy stamp set!
the images were colored with distress markers and then i popped up the kitty on the blanket to match the dimension from the wood veneers!

the sentiment is actually on the wood veneer and i love it! then i added some circle wood veneers to replicate a sort of bokeh look!

i LOVE the bright happy colors here! oh, and that background...? yeah! i used transluscent embossing paste and two different mists to create that aqua color! swoon - so FUN! love it!

so that's my card!


  1. awesome card, love the embossing paste action!

  2. Absolutely amazing card! Love all of the fun colors and textures!

  3. Wonderful card! I love the look of the paste, and that kitty is so adorable! These wood veneer pieces are just perfect!

  4. Super cute and that shiny background is super cool!

  5. Aww, so cute! Super sweet take on the sketch!

  6. I love this - it has great colors and awesome techniques!! Way to go - it looks terrific!!

  7. I can see why you would love it, Samantha! You did an excellent job making that background! The whole card is HAPPY!! Congratulations on the recognition from CTS!! Hugs, Darnell
