At Last!

A very Happy New Year to All! 

It has been a very long time since I have crafted but I saw Vicki's post here, where she is playing around with old snippets and makes a stunning card. Thanks Vicki for inspiring me.

I decided to give it a go and opened up my old stash box and made the card below.
All I have done is used snippets but I did sponge the heart pink and add my beloved enamel dots.

I enjoyed making it and sure do hope I make another card before 2024!

CASology #408 'Cozy'

 Hi All

Time for a new challenge at CASology and I am very sad to say that this is our last challenge.

Melissa has been running this challenge since 2012 and what a success it has been.

But she has decided it is time to take her life in a different direction and although we will miss this challenge, we all understand times change and new challenges always await us!

So a big thank you Melissa for running such an amazing challenge, for doing all the hard work that comes along with this and for being a fabulous team leader xx

Our final cue word is 'Cozy'

So many ways to go with this but I thought of what I find 'cozy'.....a nice cup of tea in the afternoon!

Sorry a bit of a dull photo! Yep that is some paper piecing you see-not seen by me very often!
This stamp set is from Visible Images

Our Guest Designers for this challenge are the very talented Arlene and Christine-welcome we re so pleased to have you join us for our last challenge x

Love to see what you find 'Cozy' and also love to see you join in our last challenge!
Enjoy x

Live Life in Colour!

 Hello Crafty Friends,

Hope you are all well?

My dear crafty friend Kim sent me a Uniko voucher for my Birthday and I had been wanting to use the Rainbow stamp set for a while and this week the quote at Time Out was perfect for it! A huge thank you Kim for your kindness xx

The design of this card had been in my mind for a while but today came together after seeing the colour scheme and dots and spots challenge at AAA Cards

That's me for today!
Have a good day x

CASology #406

 Hi All

Time for a new challenge at CASology and this month our cue word is 'Happy'.

So many ways to go with this-you can read below the way I interpreted 'Happy'

I decided to make a card that made me feel 'Happy'!
And when making a card the most important thing that makes me 'happy' is when I am making for a specific person is mind. This card was a 'Happy Birthday' card for my dear friend Nonni
Nonni loves Flower cards, love blues and loves blending with copics-so I did all these and hopefully this made her 'happy' and well as me!!

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is the very talented Arlene-take a look at her blog, her cards are amazing!

And then pop back to CASology to see what Arlene and the GD have made to inspire you!

Hello Again!!

 Hello my crafty friends,

It has been a month since I have made a card or even been around-life has a way of getting in the way!

I have been peaking now and then at your super cards and although not commenting...swooning from afar!

This card is made for my Sister's Birthday-she dances everything from Tango to jive....and is amazing.

I knew the stamp I wanted to use but didn't have it but my lovely crafty friend Joyce sent me some of these to play with and the very next day after they arrived, this card was made-thank you so much Joyce for your kindness and so quick!

It was the 'striped' challenge at CAS on Friday that inspired the design.

CASology #406 'Sand'

Hello my crafty Friends,

Time for a new challenge at CASology and this month our cue word is 'Sand'.

Here is my take:

Just made some sand hills using dies and layered them up at different levels. Then added some fun flip flops and sentiment from Newton's Nook Designs

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is the super talented Hannelie. I just love her style and am a long time fan-check out her blog here. 
Welcome Hannelie, we are so pleased to have you as GD X

Now over to you, but before you get creating pop on over to see what Hannelie and our Design Team have made to inspire you-check here.

CASology #405

 Hi All

Time for a new challenge at CASology and our cue word is 'Windy'.

I found the perfect sentiment from Visible Image and here is my card:

Instead of making a sunset image I decided just to go with the colours of rain and sunsets and to balance the card added a few splashes at the top.
I felt the card needed something extra so added a thin piece of twine-not seen very often on my cards!

Our Guest Designer for this post is the very talented Chrissie. I have been a long time fan of her super CAS cards and am delighted she is joining us for this challenge.

Pop on over to our blog here and see what the rest of the team have come up with!
