CASology#14 - Celebrate Your Day

Sunday is a day for rest - but not for us today!  We've got some workers coming over to EMPTY our shed and then reload it with all the summer pool stuff. So no resting at my house today!

But before we head out there - here are some cards I made during the week.  The first one is for the CASology Challenge#14 - which was "Leaf"
These are "Printworks" stamps I received awhile back from a challenge win.  I inked them with Distress Inks and Markers.  I used a PTI sentiment. I LOVE that set!!   I needed a masculine birthday card - so this should work!

While I was having fun with that set - I decided to make two more cards which are similar to each other:
This is an Inkadinkado tree stamp and I created the 'leaves' by smooshing my Distress Inks daubers. Another PTI sentiment.

Same tree, but added a Hero Arts cloud background and a different PTI sentiment.

Here's a close up of the leaf 'bling'

Hope you have a great Sunday!  I know I'll feel better once the day is done and all the 'tasks' are done!

Thanks for your visit!

You are so versatile with your stamps Maria and I love the addition of the bling to two of them, gives them a nice little "glam"! Hope the shed extravaganza goes smoothly!
