Twinkle - Twinkle : Festive Friday!

Twinkle - Twinkle : Festive Friday!

I was GOBsmacked when I saw Ardyth's tree card on the Festive Friday Blog!!
Amazing precision.  
Now, there are many, many, many AWESOME designers out there.
And I am now surrounded by them on the CASology Blog!

Though as a new pupil in the art of CAS, the epitome of
CAS and the teacher I am most inspired by is Ardyth of "Maskerade".
I am no where near her precise 'CAS'ness.
I know this, and I am fine with it.
Still, study and I will continue!!

Why Ardyth - you ask? 
Visit her blog and you will get an idea of the art.

Okay, okay,  On with it!
I saw her lovely trees with a glimmer of the silver underlying and was awestruck.
I already knew it was on the hit parade to "CASE" later.
This afternoon as I am putting away a few things, I see the little tree stamp (see below)
"BOOM" Trees, silver and I am ready.
My mind spins till I get this out..

Here she is in all of her SILVERY Glory!

Supplies:
Ali Edward of Technique Tuesdays
Hampton Art Studio Tree Stamp, Versamark, PS Stamps Embossing Powder
Designer Paper Silver Glitter Dots on Silver Mirrored
Asst Gems
Close up of the "TWINKLE"

Here is the Card that struck me, click on the CASE Card below 
and you will be taken to Ardyth's blog!

WARNING, Housework can be harmful to your health...or at least your crafting.
 
 
Well, you must be all tired of me posting more cards than one to a challenge.  What can I say,
I get really excited, and really inspired!
 
So I was pretty ill Thursday and Friday and took a break Saturday to make sure I am
recovered from a little stomach bug.
 
I knew I had to get in gear and clean my house some. 
 Believe me, posting as many cards as I do, something has to give. 
(Chuckles, have you guessed what it is?)
 
Yeah, housework.
 Today, Sunday, I intended to catch up somewhat and tackle my craft room. 
(As I run the dishwasher)
I need a re-organize, and a refresher
somewhat on where I have things and where they can be better within reach.
 
Bad idea, halfway through, I find the cutest Doodlebug Blue Jay Stickers
and Pebbles.  Eeeeeek I have to make a card quick.
A break is in order!!!!!
 
So here is a quick Card, and the good news,
NO STAMPS were harmed in the making of this card. 
LOL!
 
Can you see how I could NOT help myself.
Well, back at it.  I am sure there are going to
be more distractions....I will let almost anything distract me from housework....
(And my it is HOT here in Kirkland, WA!)

Start where you are: The Play Date Café!


The CAS-ual Friday Breathe stamp set is so serene.
Perfectly matched for the Paper Source Peony Branch Stamp
(Between you and me, I don't believe Peonies do not have branches,
I had peonies growing in my yard for years, and they are on the ground with large
slim dark green leaves.
 This is more of a cross of a cherry or apple blossom and dogwood I would think,
  I am not the expert though, some of you may be..

I saw this Webster's Pages paper out and about and I immediately thought of the

Though it is quite busy..
In "person"
this card is pleasing enough.
 
For some reason the light grey is a wee bit greenish hue to it photographed.
I am not sure why.
