Calling All Sistahs March Reminder

Hello There,

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.

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

Caught A Bug?

Hi There

I wouldn't normally post twice in a day but I am at home after catching my Husband's bug! He has been coughing and sneezing for a week now. I was feeling pretty pleased with myself for not catching it but you guessed it...I have!

My card today was inspired by the 'Bug' challenge at CASology.
I had this idea in my head since I saw the challenge and today I saw the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and off I went creating this:

Most of these stamps are from Paper Smooches. I stamped the tissue box and tissue on previously water coloured card. Fussy cut them out. I used my Visible Image snowflake stamp to represent my 'sneeze'!! The tissue box and tissue are both popped up on foam pads for dimension.

I deliberately used bright and cheerful colours as that is what I think we need when feeling a bit under the weather!!

Hope your day is going well x

Another Christmas in March Card!

Hi All

Another Christmas card inspired by a few challenges. This time a one layer card that will be great for posting abroad!

The layout is from CAS Colours and Sketches. I loved this sketch as soon as I saw it. Unfortunately I only have a small Misit so I have to eye ball when using long border stamps but think this time I did a pretty good job!

The Christmas tree border is from Uniko

I went with greens so I could join in the 'green' Verve Inspiration Challenge. This sentiment is from one of my first sets from Verve.

I used 2 different greens (I only have 2 greens) alternating the colours in this ombre look for the AAA challenge. And this will also fit in with the monochromatic challenge at Less is More

The challenges I will enter are:
Less is More-Monochrome

Merry And Bright

Hi All

Popping in with a card I made today for a few challenges.

The stamps and dies are all from the 'Shine Brighter' collection from Concord and 9th.

I used the sketch at Where Creativity Meets C9.

I got the colour scheme from the photo at Merry Monday-the off white card is meant to show the cream of the foam. I particularly used this card as it has a creamy like texture but unfortunately you can't see this in the photo.

Have a fun day x

Inkspirational #156


Time for a new challenge at Inkspirational.
It is our word prompt and the word is:

We all have 'bosses' right, unless you are one! 

In the crafting world we should consider ourselves as all we are the boss of what we create and don't we love being the boss of that!

The sentiment is from The Ton. The background is made from brushos and I have to admit I didn't create this myself-the lovely and talented Kylie made this when she was over to stay last November! The tag dies are from CAS-ual Fridays.

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is the very talented Bharati Her blog is full of inspiring projects. Take a look here. I have been following Bharati for some time now and adore her CAS style.

Then pop over to our main blog at Inkspirational and see what the talented DT have created using 'Work' as a prompt.

Enjoy x
