CASology #120 (Sea),The Cutting Edge# 14 (Lisa Addesa), SSS Wednesday 5/11 (Thinking of You)

It’s a fortnight since I arrived home after my week with the BABES at the Lake House … it’s been a busy time since … lots of insurance stuff from the lightning strike in August … plenty to keep me busy on the renovation … catching up in blogland … and jet lag!  With ‘normal’ life going on, you’d think there wouldn’t be much room for anything else.  Ha, so not so … missing you, BABES … and because you were in my thoughts, I made you a collective card …

CASology 120, TCE 14, SSSW 5-11On a white card panel, I stamped six beach huts (one each!) … I know we were by the lake and not the ocean, but I used poetic license!  They were stamped using the rectangle and diamond (masked) from Clearly Besotted Geometric Shapes, with a heart die from SSS used for the windows, and a sentiment from WPlus9 (it comes stacked … I cut it up … be proud, Ardyth!).  Using the roof colours from the huts, I stamped squares from the same CB set onto the base card so they would show through the windows, coated them with Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents, and popped the beach hut panel up on foam squares (courtesy of Geri … thanks, my friend!) on the base card.  Voila!

Some of you may notice that one of the roofs is slightly askew … it’s in need of some repair due to a little storm damage!   Want to see the how sparkly clean those windows are?  Look …

As well as being for each of the BABES, this card is also heading for …

    Took me a minute (we don’t have beach huts here!) but this is so, so cute! I love the rainbow (as you know) and the sparkly clean windows! Thanks so much for joining us at CASology this week!

    Oh, how I miss you, my dear sweet friend! You have made my Sunday the best ever with this sweet and clever card! My face is starting to hurt from smiling sooooooo big! Thanks for the giggle from the ‘storm damaged, slightly askew roof’…perhaps the insurance folks could cover the costs of a whole whack of new stamps & ink? Wouldn’t hurt to ask!

    Your card is so darn clever and beyond cute! Love the gloss & glitz on the hearts. And three cheers for slicing & dicing up a stamp! I admire your bravery!

    BTW….winner,, winner, winner, winner!!!

    Sunny and clever made card! Fits the weather of today here (no temperature for swimming, but for wlking yes!) Hope your upcomming week will be a good one!

    I’ll blame it on my blurry vision coz I sure don’t see any slightly askew storm-damaged roof on this perfectly crafted and clever card, Anita! I love that you have joined those of us who cut up our stamps (and, bonus, they go back together again!) and I appreciate how much thought and love went into this sweet winning card!! I had lunch today with Kim (lucky me!) and we were laughing and sighing as we reminisced about our good times at the Lake House! Bisous Bisous!! Darnell

    Anita, this is gorgeous! What a perfect card for the BABES! And I can’t see the askew houses…can feel your pain on the lightning strike. Ours was struck a year ago September…pain in the neck!

  6. Bev

    I have some bad news…I didn’t win the lottery so we won’t be getting our craft house in the Caribbean anytime soon. However, these little beach huts will do nicely instead! This is amazing and fun, colorful and just plain fun. I LOVE THIS CARD!!!!!!! And I’m calling it…WWCD on all challenges. VERY COOL. Miss you dear friend. bisous bisous.

  7. quilterlin

    OOOPS! I was so enamored of your card I forgot to say “thank you for joining us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!”

  8. Brenda

    What a fun and clever card Anita! I love your little beach huts representing each of your BABES and the windows, how how they sparkle and shine!!! You have been one busy gal since you have returned from your trip. Don’t you hate when you have to go back to “real” life after a trip like that?!! But real life always calls and back we must go. Hugs, Brenda

    Sweet beach huts!! Love them! Great take on the Cutting Edge Challenge and CASology too!
    Thanks for joining us!

  10. BarbGhig

    Love this card so much, Anita! Your sparkly hearts are so charming and I love the pastel color combo! Fab take on the Cue Card, too!!!

  11. Sandie

    This is so sweet and boy you needed patience to do this. Your creative use of the stamps to make the guys is inspiring. And even after you have told me their is storm damage I can’t see it….you need to keep quiet about such tiny things!! And by the way-can you come here and clean my windows-London smog is not too easy!

  12. Judy1223

    Aw, how cute are these beach huts?! Luckily the askew roof is barely noticeable…darn lightening! So glad you had a great time with “the babes” and I’m sure they will all appreciate your thoughtful card. So glad you were able to join us at CASology this week!

  13. Joyce M.

    This is so colorful and fun. I love your idea for beach huts, and just may move into one of them this spring. Thanks so much for playing along at CASology this week.

  14. Shona Chambers

    You have to stop doing this, I don’t have room in my ‘Anita’s Top 10’ list anymore. I love this one so much!! Brilliant idea to make the the little huts (we don’t have them here but I’ve seen them on tv) and the colours are so pretty. They are just darling, very much like the BABES I suspect! Hope your nearly finished dealing with the lightning strike paperwork, insurance takes such a long time to sort out. There was an earthquake 3 years ago a few hours from us and people are still waiting for their house payouts while living in a broken home.

  15. Jen W.

    I smiled as soon as I saw your colorful beach huts, Anita. They’re awesome and a great take on all the challenges! Thanks for playing along with CASology this week!

  16. Petra

    Oh, Anita, this is sooooo cute and such fun!!! Everything is done so perfectly (BTW ….I don’t see a roof that’s askew!!!!! LOL!!!!! everything is PERFECT!!!) Your little huts are done so cleverly – love the sweet heart windows with the gloss!!!! Love the colours, too!!!! I can see a lot of thinking and planning went into this card and you ended up with a masterpiece!!!! This is such a sweet card for the BABES!! Love it!!!!

  17. lollthompson

    Such a fun card Anita. Love the sweet little beach houses … one for each of the BABES — adorable! And love that you’ve done them in a rainbow of colours. Loll xx

    I’m eons behind in commenting, but not in gazing and admiring at your lovely creations as they appear in my Feedly! Time to add words to the awe…Your card here: not only pretty, charming and delightful, but the essence behind why you created it is absolutely heart-warming! You BABES now share such a special bond; thank you for allowing us to be a part! These huts – all perfect from where I’m sitting – are toooooo adorable! Love it!

  20. maria f.

    I smiled ear to ear when I saw this. Don’t know what it is about them, but I love beach huts. This is so cute and then to read your inspiration. Wunnerful!

  21. Kim S

    It’s wonderful!!! I had to go check out that stamp set and I can say without a doubt that I’m not creative enough to see a row of houses! And you cut a stamp! I’m impressed!

  22. baileyrosy

    I didnt see anything askew Ms Anita not a thing ! What I did see is a fabulous CAS creation with a cool design and beautiful pastel colours. Another glorious card from you.
