Missing London!

 Happy Weekend to you all,

It has been a while since I crafted for fun but today I saw the 'Tower' challenge at Inkspirational and knew exactly what I wanted to make.

I looked around for some colour challenges but couldn't find one but the photo at The Card Concept gave me the idea of using black and white striped paper-check out the throw.

This die was given to me by my dear crafty friend Joyce she knew I would love it-London and a cityscape-what not to love!-thank you Joyce.
It is from SugarPea Designs.

Hubby and I so miss going into London and go to the movies, strolling around town and just can't wait to do it again.
Here is hoping that can happen soon!

I will enter this into:
SugarPea Mix Up Challenge-using the sketch-I flipped it.
The Card Concept-the black and white throw inspired this CAS design.

Time Out Reminder #181

 Hi All

I am here to remind you there is still time to join in our photo challenge at Time Out

With Valentine's over I wanted to make a card that had no hearts on it but focused more on the colours, patterns and the flowers.

Here is the photo-look out for the flowers:

This challenge is sponsored by CAS-ual Fridays and I have used a stamp and die that is retired now but their are similar ones here.

You can check out the card from our Guest Designer Nancy on her blog here

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

I used the sketch at Fab Friday for my lay out.

CASology #384

 Hi Crafty Friends,

Time for a new challenge at CASology and our cue word is:

This I struggled with as I have no stamp images of a fox. So I had to think way out of the box!
I went with 'Fox' in the terms of a 'Foxy' other words a chic lady and made this:

This image is from STAMPlorations and I decided to make her really chic using only neutral colours-I used copics here.

So what does our cue word mean to you?

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;

Time Out #181

 Hi All

Time for a new challenge 'photo' challenge at Time Out sponsored by CAS-ual Fridays

Here is my card:

And here is the photo that inspired it:

As you can see I went for the red, the hearts, stripes and that tiny black and white heart at the bottom.

The sentiment and heart are from CAS-ual Fridays but it seems this set is retired but you can find similar sets here

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is the very talented Nancy. I love her CAS style and pop on over to her blog here and I am sure you will come back a fan and be ready to craft!

CASology #383

Hi All

Time for a new challenge at CASology
Our cue word is:

I made this:

I went literal with this!

I do love to place the image and the sentiment together at the top or bottom of a CAS card. Hard to get the right images and sentiments to do this but here I loved what I came up with. Just some tiny gems to add some more interest.

This sweet little bird dropping off a card in an envelope is from Funky Fossil Designs and the sentiment from CASual Fridays

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is the very creative Rahmat. I am sure many of you know what a superb designer she is! I am a super fan! Take a look at her blog here and join me as a fan!
