CAS-ual Friday + Paper Smooches + MFTWSC115

What did we do before cell phones & texting? Our school commute was turned upside down last week when the local light rail train was suddenly and very unexpectedly taken out of service. Day two of using the new Express Bus service and it is late, so while I wait for my daughter to text me an update on their location I am going to try post a couple of cards.

The Paper Smooches sketch and CASual Fridays Challenge to color block combined nicely to create this card.

The images are from PS My Peeps stamp set and colored with Copics, fussy cut and added to the card stock panels.

As always, projects are NOT limited to just cards :)

My second card is for the My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club at Splitcoaststampers - you can find all the details on the MFT Forum.

I used the cake image from the MFT Who's That Birthday Girl stamp set, masking and stamping the single candle stamp numerous times - I really love the look of the uneven candles! They are colored with copics and the flames sparkle with Stickles.

Dear Daughter is almost at our meeting point, so I have to run!

Thanks for stopping by,



  1. I just love both of your cards. The colors are so rich, bright and saturated. It is like a burst of sunshine on my screen. Bummer about the trains...It's hard to believe.

  2. Wonderful cards Jacquie! Love the bright colors and fun images! Hope the commute issues get resolved soon!

  7. I just love your color blocked card using the PS sketch. What a great idea that little yellow block is. I see your snowy conditions, we here in Germany had a blizzard early on this week too (never have that). So we've got snow outside. Again. But at least the sun comes out during the day.

  8. Hahaha, love the toucans on your card, and the yellow intersection! Neon looks so great on kraft. Thanks so much for playing at CAS-ual Fridays this week, Jacquie!

    Here's another question, what did we do before the internet?!? Answer: a lot more housekeeping! : )
