a remotivated adventure

What are you trying to tell me, spell check - remotivated isn't a real word?
I was feeling unmotivated last week, and used my favorite technique for a CASE (Copy And Share Everything) of a card from the Occasions catalog.  It worked, I've been feeling much more motivated this week!  Of course, it's always motivating to plan for a Card Buffet, and I'll be hosting them this week.  Even more motivating, my CASEd card was chosen as a Top 3 for Challenge #61 at Cardz 4 Guyz - a challenge I just discovered this year.  Thank you so much, Caz!

While my motivation is holding steady, I tried my hand at Leslie's Crooked Stamper CSSC#2 sketch (turned on its side):
stamp sets - Moon Lake, Simply Wonderful; ink - Pool Party, Coastal Cabana, Island Indigo; Stampin' Write markers - Mossy Meadow, Chocolate Chip, blender pen; punches - 1-1/4" circle, extra-large oval; Stampin' sponges

I was thinking I needed one more card for the buffet, but this one is a little too fussy.  I started with just a mask for the moon, but ended up cutting two masks for the goose (one with a straight edge for the lake and another for the sky.  Hmm, maybe I could have just cut the goose once and laid a straight-edge mask on top of it...

Making cards for classes was always a challenge for me. If I made what I liked, I had to re-examine it to make sure it wasn't too complicated, and could be executed in under 30 minutes by someone else.

I think one mask for the goose would work here. And it can be reused.

Thanks for playing my challenge!
