Addicted to CAS #25 - One Layer



Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend...mine has been pretty quiet, yesterday we went to Travis Air Force Base to do our grocery shopping, came home and made a pot of homemade chicken noodle soup, love soup and the weather is getting a bit cooler.  I finished laundry and cleaned my craft room up a bit so I would not feel guilty playing with some of my new stamps.  When I saw the City Scene set from PTI I knew this one would be coming home to live with me, just wish it had San Francisco in it too.  Maybe it will be in an additions pack in the future.  I decided to use the set to make a card for this week's Addicted to CAS challenge, one layer cards...I don't do many of these so this was a bit of a challenge but lots of fun using my new stamps.  Since going to Paris is on my bucket list I decided to play with those stamps first and made a little scene of Santa flying over the Eiffel Tower.  Thank you so much for taking time to peek at my card...have a fabulous day!

  3. I love this card, Kim! It's fabulous - I don't know why but Santa and the Eiffel Tower seemed incongruous to me. You made me think outside my box! It really works, and the surprise makes is very happy!

  4. Great one layer card and scene Kim! It would have been great if the set included San Francisco - then I probably would have bought it!

  8. Ohh...this is cute! I love the image of Santa flying over the Eiffel Tower...just started to play with my set yesterday...it is FUN! I think a "City Landmarks" would be a great addition set for this!

  9. Sweet card Kim - I think San Francisco would be a great addition to this stamp set. You did a great job lining up the detail stamps on the building - did you find them easy to work with?

  10. I hope they hear you about the SF images we need, Kim! In the meantime, your Santa and his reindeer flying over Paris is a pure delight!! Hope you didn't get blown away last night! I had a few pots knocked over, but otherwise, all is well. That was fierce! Hugs, Darnell

  11. Ah, Kim, Paris, the Eiffel Tower and Santa flying over it ... such a wonderful scene! As he's in the vicinity, wonder if he'll make the trip a few hundred kms further south and make a delivery or two here ... wouldn't take long in his magic sleigh! Anita :)

  12. Love this! What a wonderful one layer card. What crisp stamping, and perfect color choices. If I win the lottery, I'll do my best to help you make it to Paris and cross it off your 'bucket' list. Super card. Bev

  15. Oh, this is just fabulous. What a cute way to use those new stamps. I love the little scene you put together. I agree that a San Francisco additions set would be perfect. I even know what images I want. Have to start the lobbying effort.
