Love!

 Hello There!

Been a while since I have felt like making a card but the photo at Just Us Girls really inspired me to get those inks out and make this:



Pretty easy to see the stripes and 'love' inspired me. The ink is actually blue although looks black here-it is 'Juniper Mist' from Catherine Pooler-a great dark blue ink.

The design I got when I saw the challenge this morning at AAA Cards-along the edge (no option taken).

Hardest part was to get the red stripes on the die cut section, to match up perfectly, to the base card, but I did it!

I decided to keep it this CAS as I just love the clean, graphic look, the way it is!

I will also enter into Addicted to CAS-geometric cards

Have a good day x

Christmas!

 Hi All

I haven't been crafting much recently and then suddenly an idea popped into my head this morning inspired by the sketch at CAS Colour and Sketches-I made a super CAS version of this but loved how the sketch sparked the idea.

All I needed was some colours and Color Throwdown gave me these.

So last minute entries into these challenges with my one layer CAS Christmas card.



Quite hard to get a clear photo as it is pouring here in London and these challenges finish today.
The stamps are all from Visible Image

Have a good day x

CASology #392 Strength

Hi All,

We have a new challenge at CASology and our cue word is:


And my take:

 


This sentiment is from The Ton and I think it speaks for itself! I just added a touch of patterned paper and a few enamel dots and done!

Pop on over to CASology and see how the team have interpreted the word and then get inky!
Enjoy!

Cheers!

 Hi All

Popping in with a card I made a few days ago for Addicted to CAS-OMBRE-and it was Trina's card that gave me the inspiration to use the ombre on the die!


The hardest part of this was to find a sentiment that fit in with the curves of the die!

Also I will enter it into:

Be A WildFlower!

 Hi All

I actually did some crafting this weekend and was inspired by a couple of photos to make this card:


All stamps are from Funky Fossil Designs

The following 2 photo challenges inspired me and I think it is easy to see why!

Just Us Girls-added the twine here as a nod to the lace and burlap.

Inspired By!

 Hi All

Popping in with a card inspired by the photo at Inspired by Challenge-loved the floral look and the colours. Plus really liked the large sentiment and it was Michele's card here that gave me the idea to make this CAS card:


Used the floral stamp from Funky Fossil Designs.
Just curved the sentiment around the 'Y' which was tricky but I got there in the end!

Have a fun day!

Memories!

 Hi All

I haven't had much mojo recently but needed a sympathy card for a friend who recently lost her Mum.

I saw someone had pinned one of my old cards made many years ago and remembered how much I liked the card so decided to give it a re-vamp by just changing it up a bit-I CASed myself!

I actually was helped by the sketch at Less is More


This is my favourite sentiment for a sympathy card.
Sorry the photo is not good but London is pretty dull and rainy at the moment!

Have a good day x

Challenge #187

Hi All

Time for a new challenge at Time Out but before I tell you about that I have some news for you that I am telling you with a very heavy heart.

 I have been running Time Out for over 7 years now but as most of you know I struggle with my health. Over the last year my health has deteriorated and I can no longer run Time Out to standard I would like and although I have been trying to, it is my health that has suffered.

So now it is time to take Time Out and step down completely.

I will no longer be running Time Out or be on the DT.

BUT Time Out will continue with a group of the DT taking on various roles, of which they will share with you over the next few weeks.

Before I go I wanted to thank you all for playing with us with so much enthusiasm and I have loved visiting your blogs which have always inspired me.

And a huge thank you to my wonderful DT, both past and present, who have not only made superb cards but also many have helped so much behind the scenes and supported me-thank you guys x

And finally a thank you to all our wonderful Sponsors, your generosity and support have been appreciated so much.

This will be my last challenge but I have already planned the rest of the year so I would love to see you all still play!

And my final card for this challenge is:


And the challenge is:


Our Sponsors are Topflight Stamps and they have many brand in there store and one of my favourite-Visible Images-and I have used their Tomorrow Doesn't Exist stamp set here. I watercoloured onto the actual stamp before stamping to give the image an even more feel of movement than her jumping. And followed this through with adding a few splashes of paint.

I am very excited that our Guest Designer for this challenge is a friend and one amazing crafter Milla. Milla has to be one of the best designers I know at colouring-truly outstanding-pop on over to her blog here and you will see what I mean!


Now pop on back to Time Out and see what Milla and our amazing DT have made.
I will still be visiting your blogs for this challenge and also will be seeing you in blogland as much as I can xx

I will enter this into:

AAA Birthday Challenge-who are celebrating their 2nd Birthday-this card went to my Aunt for her Birthday-she is a painter and I thought she might like an arty card!

Happy Birthday Joyce!

 Hi All

Popping in to say a very Happy Birthday to my dear friend Joyce

I got this stamp especially for her Birthday as Joyce has a dog called Sherlock and I have a cat called Bubbles-so the image from Newton's Nook just seemed so right-our pets are friends too!

I did my best at colouring-even did some blending!

I was happy with the result and sure hope Joyce has a fab Birthday-sending hugs your way Joyce x

The base card is a nod to the wood terrace-this card was a gift from crafty buddy Vicky-I saw her use it on her blog and loved it and the next thing I get sheets in the post!!-thank you Vicky!

These stamps stamps and sentiment are from Catherine Pooler
