Time Out #93

Hi All

We have a new challenge at Time Out and this is a special challenge are we are here is help raise awareness of Breast Cancer. Breast Cancer Awareness month starts in a few days and we want to remind you of how important it is to do a monthly check-it takes 5 mins-not sure how, check this link here

Onto our challenge:

Breast Cancer Awareness and/or Friendship Challenge with the optional twist of using pink

winner gets $25 gift voucher for CAS-ual Fridays and we have a special prize package for those who use pink (chosen randomly)

I went for the optional twist, using all CAS-ual Friday Products and sent the card to a very dear friend:

Here I have used the following from our fabulous sponsor CAS-ual Friday Stamps:

Full on Floral stamp-heat embossed in white and water coloured with pink water colour paint, trying to create an ombre look to match the photo at Calling All Sistahs, by slowy using less and less pink paint and drawing it down with more water
Pretty Posies stamps-flower and leaf heat embossed in white onto vellum and die cut Sentiment from the set also.
Pretty Posie Fri-Dies-to die cut flower and leaf
Tag Buddies Fri-Dies-to cut tag dies.

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is the very talented Yulia. Her blog is a delight to visit. Check it out here, it is full of creative projects. We are so pleased she has joined us for this very special challenge.

Our DT and Yulia have some great inspiration for you-check it out here.
Then take some time out and join in the fun-you have until 12th Oct 5pm BST to play x

I will enter this into:

Calling All Sistahs Encouragement Challenge-this time I didn't go with the colours but the ombre background in the photo-using wet on wet water colouring to give this effect and the florals for the cloud look-see info of this above in card description.


  1. So pretty, Sandie ... the watercolour ombré background is soft and lovely ... and fabulous with the delicate vellum bloom! What a gorgeous combination the kraft is with the pink ... I hardly use kraft, but you've made it rather tempting here! Hugs, Anita :)

  2. Your watercolour background is so pretty, Sandie. You've been rocking the watercolouring. Love the subtle colours. Great challenge at TO. Have a great day, hun. xx

  3. I'm putting this card right up to the top of my favorite Sandie cards!!! Just so sweet, and beautifully colored in that luscious pink, Sandie!!! Your friend will love it, I'm very sure! xx

  4. I'm very proud to own this beauty! :) The kraft base you've used really lets the pink and white shine and that floral background stamp is so pretty... Great idea to watercolor it in ombre style. I have some background stamps where I could try this... Thanks for inspiration!

  5. Beautiful your sweet card. Your background is amazing.

  6. Pjew weekend; finaly time to see what you made...
    Love that you used 2 tags; looks so elegant and stil warm with the craft one on top! And great delicate soft colours; elegant and perfect for a woman! Enjoy the weekend!

  7. Love that soft water color background. So beautiful Sandie.

  8. I love the colour combo of kraft, white and soft pink - so pretty! The floral background you created is just gorgeous - and I love how you pinned the tag with an enamel dot - brilliant finishing touch!

  9. What a gorgeous background on this beauty. Love the tilted tag. Kraft, pink and vellum... 3 of my favorite things.

  10. This is so pretty, Sandie. I love the look of that beautiful background you so carefully made, and the double layer tag and vellum flower are wonderful.

  11. Sandie that full on floral is stunning. Just wow. Perfect background for your beautiful card. I love the bold pop of black for the sentiment. Jenny x

  12. Beautiful BG and perfect encouragement card! Happy to see you again at CAS.
