Love!

Hi All

Super quick post as lots to do this week.

I made this card inspired by a few challenges:



I love pinks and greys together so used the Inspiration challenge at CAS-ual Fridays  as my starting point. I stamped this 'love' stamp from CAS-ual Fridays and coloured in some of the flowers in grey. 

The layout comes from CAS(E) THIS Sketch. I used 3 score lines to make my card super CAS.

Added a few grey enamel dots and done!

Have a good week.

Sparkle!

Hi All

Popping in with another early morning make!

Another one layer Christmas card ready to post abroad!


I loved the photo at The Card Concept (Happy 100th Challenge x) as soon as I saw it. The pink and gold just jumped out at me and I decided I would make a Christmas card from these colours. You know I love my non traditional colours! Happy 100th Challenge.  I went with the CAS style....as if I would go for an other!

I looked around for a sketch and thanks to Freshly Made Sketches I found one. As soon as I saw the sketch the stamp set I have used here by Visible Image came to mind immediately.

I used delicata gold ink which is great for making one layer cards if you don't want to emboss-it gives a lovely shine.

This gold also allows my card to fit into Paru's Card Making Challenge-A touch of Gold

Have a great day x

Calling All Sistahs October Challenge.

Hi Sistahs,

I am here with our monthly Calling All Sistahs Encouragement challenge from CAS-ual Fridays. Our little bunch of Sistahs are all about raising awareness for Breast Cancer and would love you to join our monthly challenge.


What do we mean by an 'Encouragement' card? Well anything that would brighten someone's day. I am sure you have plenty of ideas of how to do this and make cards like this every time you sit down you craft. So why not share them with us?

This month we are changing things and having a sketch instead of a photo and colours.

I am not so good with sketches but gave it a go and came up with this card:




I have used the stamp set Word Ribbon and the tags are Tag Buddies Fri-Dies. Both from CAS-ual Fridays

And our sketch:



Here is how you play along:

1. Make a card that will brighten someone's day inspired by the sketch.


2. Link up here by 12am EST on the 13th of June
3. Share with your friends and followers so we can get the word out about our challenge.



One person will win a $25 gift code to use on anything in the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps store.  All products are welcome, but if you use CAS-ual Fridays stamps or dies on your card, Michele will DOUBLE your prize!!!

My fellow Sistahs have all made amazing cards-check them out here and then get inky!

Make someone happy today with a very special card from you!

Can't wait to see your cards!

Calling All Sistahs October Reminder

Hi There Sistahs,

I am here today as part of the Calling All Sistahs design team, to help raise awareness of Breast Cancer and the importance of doing that monthly self breast exam. It takes 5 mins-check out how to do that here.

Michele, owner and designer of CAS-ual Friday Stamps designed a special line of stamps and dies to help raise awareness of Breast Cancer-you can check them out here. Michele donates 50% of the profit from these to National Breast Cancer Awareness.

Here is my reminder card for this month:



Her I have used the CAS-ual Friday Ruffled Ribbon Die. I die cut it on grey card and used the negative die to pop over my base pink patterned card.

The sentiment is from the set CAS-ual Friday 'Mon Ami'

All our Design Team have made amazing cards-check them out here.

We would love you to go shopping from this range to help us raise awareness of Breast Cancer and if you do and use the code 'cas comfort' you get a discount!

Come back tomorrow as I will be here with our monthly 'Calling All Sistahs' challenge!!

Have a super day and don't forget to put 5 mins aside to do that self exam!

Have a fun day x

Best Dad Ever....STOP!

Hi All

A quick card for you today.
Well I say 'quick' but it took 4 days to come up with this idea! It may look simple but trying to mask that sentiment took so many try outs. Plus then coming up with a design took me ages.
So...not so quick but I was pleased with the end result!


This is for the 'Punctuation' challenge at CASology. I thought this was such a creative cue word and wanted to play. However I have no stamps or dies that suited it. Then one morning I remembered this sentiment stamp from Avery Elle-where the punctuation 'full stop' is a word not a sign!. I knew then this was what I wanted to use...but how???

A few days later this card was made!

I was just pleased I had thought of this idea. It was a huge challenge!

This is obviously for my Dad-who is the best Dad ever-always there for me through thick and thin-I love you Dad x

Peace on Earth!

Hi All

Happy weekend to everyone.

My card for today:


The lay out is from the latest sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch

I really like this sketch and was going to go for a flower card until I saw this card by blogging friend Pia. As soon as I saw Pia's card it gave me the idea to use my reindeer die for this sketch-thanks Pia for the inspiration! The reindeer is cut from glitter fun foam and IRL really does sparkle!

I was also going to go more whites until I saw the photo at Inspired by. I love all the warm colours in it and the wood grain. So went with this.

The snowflake has been stamped and is from my fav snowflake set this year-Let It Snow-Happy Little Stampers.

As well as the challenges mentioned I will enter it into:


Enjoy your weekend
