Sharing 2 cards which i made yesterday evening, the first one up is a sponged card.
I choose navy blue, black, magenta, and yellow inks to create the full moon sky, I was out just 2 days back in the night, and witnessed the full moon night, the sky wasn't really dark. It had a blue, and pink hue, so I am trying to bring the look on this card.
I sponged yellow and magenta around the moon to give the radiance, decided to keep the moon really white, so no sponging done on it.
The sentiment has a great meaning to me personally. I am living an expat life for a decade and half now, and I meet/met so many wonderful people. We meet and then either of us have to part ways to pursue a new job or livelihood. So this card, I am dedicating in honor of all the wonderful friends I have met along, and I am in touch with them on some platform.
The trees are from my custom made stamps, this is the first time I am using these, and I am glad I did!
No relevance, but adding the picture of the full moon night, and the fireworks we witnessed for the lunar festival here in Macau.
Adding this card to
My second entry here :) , I have used the trees stamps for the first time.
This is my first time playing here, and I am glad to find this CAS challenge blog!
When I made this card, my daughter did suggested, it has a Japanese feel to it. I was impressed with her, and Anita too suggested to add it here, and we just celebrated the lunar festival called mid-autumn festival in china, and I was depicting the full moon sky, so I am now convinced to add this card here :)
The second card up is a weaved card, I weaved the brown card stock in a basket weave, I am trying to get the look of a flower basket with a message sticking out.
The stamps are from Avery Elle, I used foam adhesive and added on the toothpicks!
Added 2 blooms,and leaves, and I also trimmed some paper swirls using a green and kraft card stock. Of lately I am hooked on using the hand-cut paper swirls!
It is a very simple card, other than weaving there isn't much on this card, but I am happy how well it turned out.
A close up at the weaving.

I have used the Avery Elle handwritten stamps.
I was inspired by the tiled up sentiment, so tried to give that look, and the white and brown colors in the picture!
I know it is a bit long post, and thank you for bearing with it :)
