Escaping the Doctors

     A week or so ago, I told you how much I dearly love the bears from QKR Stampede (challenge theme: dies or punches) and today I'm using another one for a Get Well card.  I hope this brings a smile to your face.


My design sketch came from the CASE card at
AAA Cards and it has to be CAS.  
I tried to stick with the colors, too, but dulled my background pink quite a bit.


       I colored the bear with ProMarkers, then die cut the image with a square die and used a corner punch on all 4 corners.  The background piece I made myself, using an old piece of plastic netting (like you get with a fruit or vegetable bag) and coloring across it with the chisel tip of the ProMarkers.  Aside from the fact that I wanted something close to the background on the CASE card, I really like that effect and will use it again, I'm sure.  That piece is also die cut and punched.

     I dry embossed the brown CS strip with the "Lattice" folder from SU.  The sentiment is my own, printed with a computer font.  My only embellishment on this CAS card is the die cut swirl in the lower corner.  No ribbon, no twine, no string, no flowers, no gems or pearls -- I think I'm finally getting the hang of CAS!!  :-D

     Challenges:
A Creative Romance -- 1 for the boys
Artistic Inspirations -- Dies or punches
Come and Get It -- Bingo: Texture/ Free/ No dp
Fan-Tastic Tuesday -- 1 for the guys
Glitter n Sparkle -- For men or male colors
Graph'It -- Warm colors
Papertake Weekly -- Ooh, so cute!
Speedy Fox & Friends -- No design paper
Wags 'n Whiskers -- 1 for the boys

     Well, this was fast and simple so you did get a post today after all.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Oh course you can do CAS - and this is a perfect example!! Love that cute image and the way you used the veggie netting for the background is so creative. Guess I'll have to start saving mine now and trying that! Fantastic card!

Your background looks great and this is so cute. It reminds me of a funny story.
When I had my first son in a hospital, they had those cotton gowns that tie in the back. I used a 2nd gown as a housecoat by tying it at the front.
At that time all newborns were kept in the nursery, but mothers could wheel the crib/incubator to their rooms and back.
One day I was wheeling little Paul back to the nursery. Many visitors, including new dads, were milling about the hallway. As one brushed passed me I felt a sudden draft at my back.
You guessed it. I had forgotten my 'housecoat'.

Victoria Lavender said...

Hey sweetie- fun card! Your background is quite innovated and I'm a sucker for personally made sentiments. We all got computers....use them! I believe in mixed media cards!! Digi's, stamps, hand drawn, magazine prints, organic's, old stuff and new stuff...the only catch is- making CAS. Ha ha! We love that you come to play with us, I look for your card each week. Big hugs, Vicki
