Time Out #163

Hi All

It is our 'Inspired by Words' challenge at Time Out and here is what I made:

And here is the quote that inspired me:

You can use any of these words or the whole phrase.

I went with the whole phrase and made my Mother's Day card. My Mum is a charming gardener, she makes me happy and makes my soul bloom!

Our sponsors for this challenge are STAMPlorations and here I have used their products Double Stitch Nesting Dies and the Happy Flower Stencil

Our Guest Designer is the very talented Trina. I met Trina a number of years ago in blogland and she is one lovely person and an amazing designer. I am sure many of you know Trina-if not pop on over to her blog here and I bet you become a fan too!
Welcome Trina x

Now time to see what Trina and the Design Team have made to inspire you-check it out here

Enjoy x

How CAS can I go!

Hi All

I think I have gone as CAS as I can with this card and I love it!

Is the Chaos of the world making you more or less creative?

These stamps are all from Visible Image.

Layout from CAS(E) This Sketch
Colours from Color Throwdown

Hi All

I have had the idea for this card in my head since seeing To Bee or Not To Bee Blog Hop on Milka's blog-there she tells us all about how important Bees are to our environment-find out more here.

I was waiting for a colour scheme I liked to make it-thanks to Cupcake Inspirations that came along!

I was going to make this a one layer card but decided to go with the sketch at Paper Players.

Here is what I came up with:

The stamps are from 2 different Funky Fossils sets.

I think this sentiment is so perfect for so many occasions-but this one is off for a Birthday to a friend who loves pink!

Have a fun day x
Cupcake Inspirations-the card for the label is cream.

CASology #369

Hi All,

We have a new challenge at CASology starting today.

Here is my take:

And the cue word is:

I played around with this word as I was not sure what to do-then inspiration hit me!
I could use a 'wind' instrument!
So I created this card!
This image and sentiment is from the set Jazz it Up-Visible Images

Pop on over to CASology to see what the DT have created for you and then join on in!

Our Design Team are all worth a visit and some love-here they are;

Crafty Friends!

Hello Crafty Friends,

Having a lazy day at home today and saw some challenges that inspired me to create this card:

I liked the photo at Just Us Girls and couldn't get the back of the chairs out of my head...they look like paint splashes to me and I kept wondering how I could use this idea.
Then along came the Rainbow Challenge at Addicted to CAS-so colours sorted.

Then today I saw that it is AAA Cards 6th Birthday-yah, Happy Birthday to you! So I had to join in and set myself the challenge of making a super, super CAS card for their Birthday and combining the other 2 challenges-I think I got it! And obviously it is for a crafty friend's Birthday!!

I wasn't going to add anything else but couldn't resist adding my favorite embellishments as it just seemed to finish off the card to me-I will add the card to As You Like It Challenge-favorite embellishments and why-obviously enamel dots and to me they add the perfect finishing touch (plus I am a bit addicted to them!!)

I know this looks like it was made in 5 mins but actually took ages to get it just right, with a lot of thinking time too!

Enjoy your day!

Dotty About You!

Happy Weekend to all!

Just popping in with a card I made for a few challenges:

It is 'one layer week' at Less is More and you know I love my one layer cards! They are asking for 'Going Dotty' cards!
Well I knew the exact set I wanted to use and made this card for hubby as the poor thing must go 'dotty' living with me! But after so many years I am still 'dotty' in love with him!

I used the colour scheme at Color Throwdown-just the 'you' is in grey and all dots are yellow!!

Oh how I stamping one layer CAS cards!

Enjoy x
