CTC#240 CASEing Everyday Occasions from pages 12-71

Welcome back to CTC - it's been a while since I was able to participate so I'm really thrilled to be able to join in. This is a massive section of the catalogue and I wasn't sure where to start so I decided to simply go with one of the images that jumped out at me when I first read the catalogue back in April.
The gorgeous simple line images from Grandma's House appealed to me at first sight. And since time is precious I have made 2 very simple cards using the fabulous Magnolia Lane Cards and More from the beginner brochure. These time savers are such good value at $1.75 each for the card, envelope and printed M&M card.
Grandma's House is on page 28 of the catalogue and one day I will make a shaker card with the cutout around the house but not today!!

I used my Stamp n Write markers in the colours below and a blender pen to colour the images and a watercolour wash to colour the background. It was very relaxing to just sit quietly and colour in.

Of course if you are going to colour one picture you might as well do a few, so with the leftover I made a full size card. None of them have sentiments, I quite like them just plain.

Don't forget we love to see what else you create with inspiration from anything on the pages 12-71 of the catalogue. Pop a photo on our Facebook page and be part of this week's challenge.

Before me this week is Mel and next on the hop is Simone. Be sure and follow the links all the way around the hop for more inspiration.

I hope you have a creative week and remember, 
"don't just post online,
 post something pretty!"

cheers, Liz
