February Challenge:CAS Love and Friendship

LL3021Standing Kitty stencil paste-embossed 
It is amazing how many of my friends are cat lovers! In fact, long time friend and fellow paper artist Diane Mauer loves cats, dogs and just about anything that is considered a "creature". (With the noted exception of spiders....but I've never known her to kill one.) In spite of being a cat lover she's also allergic to them, which does give one paws (ok a pun once in awhile is allowed) and just this past year she has a new kitty in her life. So I will be sending this card to her soon. Georgia Sommers post last week inspired me to stay better connected with friends. Need to send out my creations and connect. 

This month our challenge is centered around CAS (which stands for Clean AND  Simple) with an underlying theme of  Love and/or Friendship. Our winner will again be chosen randomly this month and the prize will be a stencil of your own choosing. So link up with mr. linky below to join the fun. This month I will be in the UK for a couple of weeks so if you are emailing me a card to put on the site after the 13th you should email it to otherwise until then you can email me at We love getting your creations to post on the Dream it Up blog. Thanks for joining our monthly challenges.

Three different techniques are shown today:

1. The background Big Dot stencil (LX7011) was done with the double glitter technique. For the complete instructions email me at and I will send them to you.

2. Paste-embossing the kitty words sentiment (LG741) on ribbon is quite simple. Just a matter of taping the ribbon down so that it doesn't move while you are pasting on top it. 

3. The standing kitty stencil (LL3021) was paste-embossed onto the double glitter background with the Dreamweaver Glossy White Embossing Paste (DGWP). 

Please take time to visit the design team's blogs to see what they have been creating for this month's love and friendship challenge AND don't forget to send a card to a friend or loved one.
