Addicted to CAS #30

Here at Addicted to CAS we were so happy to see so many fabulous entries to our 'die cut' challenge and thank you all for supporting us. This week, the super talented Shana is our hostess and she has chosen the following code word:

What a great code word for this time of year. You can interpret this in so many ways and if you pop over to our blog here you will see how our DT have done exactly this!
At first I went with new home, new baby etc but it just wasn't working for me. Eventually I created this card:

This card is for a friend who has been through a rough time. My card is meant to represent a 'new beginning' for her. The storm has passed and now it is time to see the rainbows and begin again!

All the colours of the rainbow are shown......I still have to look them up! A few gems and a sequin just seemed to finish off the card as I wanted.

And this month we have Nancy joining us as our GDT. You can check out Nancy's wonderful cards here

Deedee digis are our sponsors and you could win 3 of their fabulous digi set.

Have a fun stamping x


  1. Great interpretation on the cue word! I love the colorful butterflies, this reminded me of a butterfly stamp I have and never use, I have to dig it out from the stamp box! I like the layout. xx

  2. This is wonderful! Your take on the code word is just perfect for your friend. Pretty colourful. Love it.

  3. So beautiful, so colorful and a brilliant take on the theme!
