You Mean the World to Me and Koi Birthday....TIME OUT Challenge #89~Home Sweet Home, CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge #234

Hello,

Super quick post to share two cards I made before my guests arrived (and we're enjoying ourselves fabulously!).

TIME OUT Challenge #89~Home Sweet Home has this lovely room to inspire us:


Here's my take...Concord and 9th stamps all the way...and even some embossing, as I'm trying out my new heat gun.  Hard to see the shimmer on my map, but it's definitely there...


CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge #234 is next:



Planning to go to the zoo today! I'm excited...hippos!

Thank you for dropping in; your visit brightened my day!

  3. These are both wonderful, Carol. I love that fantastic map, and how you were able able to emboss and color it in such a beautiful way. And, your koi is wonderful--love the background he is 'swimming' in. Thanks so much for playing along at Time Out. So sorry that I have not been by to visit much this summer.

  4. I don't mean to be Koi, Roy ... but I haven't even tried to use this gorgeous fish since I promptly ripped his tail off with its debut at the craft table!
    So happy to see him swimming around our gallery!! REally stunning!
