CASology #39 and April Cloud 9


I have two cards for tonight, the first one for this week's CASology and the cue card is Travel...I thought about skipping this week and while playing with Lucy, (that is the name of my Cameo) I remembered I had this adorable girl on a bicycle and I knew this is what I would use. I love the way it turned out and paired it with PTI's Destination set.  


My second card is for this month's Cloud 9 challenge...I don't have many WP9 stamp sets so I just had to make what I had work for me. After seeing the card that Joyce from Cards-by-the-Sea made for the challenge I was inspired and my card came together in a flash.  I even added a few sequins to it so it would be a bit more festive since it is a birthday card.  Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by to peek at my cards....have a wonderful evening.

  2. Unbelievably good!!!!! I love that girl on a bicycle. Such a great idea and it looks so great on the rolling hills in patterned paper. Kim, you are SO smart!

  3. Oh, my. Now I know why you wanted me to see your card. Your CASology card is beyond cute. I absolutely love that bicycling girl image, and the way you have combined it with those cute rolling hills out of that Doodlebug paper--a clear winner in my book. And, I am so glad I inspired you for WPlus9--your card is fantastic. Now, you are going to need to start collecting more graphic style stamps, because this is wonderful and you have a talent for this type of stamping! OK, I am pinning both of these cards, and I am going to beg Lucy to send me one of those girl on a bike cuts.

  5. Kim,Lucy did that? That bike silhouette is the best. I love it! I think combining it with the In the Meadows hills is just brilliant! Love your WPlus9 what great graphic images and the sequins are a lovely touch. Thank you so much for sharing with us this week at CASology!
