 Hi everyone,
 I'm back again, can you believe it?
I have two cards to share with you today, both CAS!

The first is an A6 Kraft base.
I embossed two lots of two lines, not sure they're showing very well in the photo.
I then wrapped some some button twine around & tied in a bow.
I added a die cut flower & hello, are from some lovely blog candy that I got
a while back, from the lovely CG. I've used some of the bits & pieces 
up  already but still have lots left!
I rounded the corner with a woodware punch & added a panel inside
for a message to be written on.
I'd like to enter this card in the challenge at:

The second is a 6"x6" sqaure linen embossed cs base.
I added another of the diecut hello's from CG.
I added a couple of embossed lines at the bottom
then created a border using a Sakura Stardust gel pen.
I tried lots of other little embellishments, but on my way home from
work I had a lightbulb moment & decided to use buttons.
The best colour match were these little heart buttons which I've had
in my stash for ever. It was a tiny little packet, with 3 different sizes
& they seem to be never ending! lol

Flights Of Fancy

Hi everyone, hope your week is going well so far!
It's time for my DT Inspiration for the latest challenge over at 
I've made a little A6 CAS card!

I've used two of the images kindly supplied by this mont's sponsor
Doctor Digi's House of Stamps
The first image is Captain Thunderpants, the second, which I've cropped into the
call out bubble is Phyllis the Festive Fairy.
Captain Thunderpants has a flight of fancy that he & Phyllis will
one day fly of into the wild blue yonder together...........
although I'm not sure how Phyllis would feel about that if she knew!
I used my Promarkers & flexmarkers to colour up the images.

The sentiment is printed using a free font called winged.
I used a picket fence die to cut along the top of the image panel.
I also added the strip that was left along the top of the card.
Not sure why, I just liked the effect!
I added a panel to the inside which wat die cut with a Spellbinders Rectangle 
Hope to see you over at The Crafting Cafe!
I'd like to enter this card in a couple of challenges:

More Gorjuss Girls

 Good Morning all,
Here's another selection of little cards I made using this month's cover gift from the 
Creativity Magazine

I simply added some lace & papers from my stash,
 a Happy Birthday peel off & gems to embellish.
The decoupage & sentiment were mounted on foam tape for some dimension

A get well card, again using items from my stash.

Finally a little Thank You card.
I used the lace for a bunting effect, matted the decoupage on to a Spellbinders 
die cut oval which I had inked with Spun Sugar & Milled Lavender Distress inks.
The sentiment is die cut & I added a little sparkle using a 
Sakura Clear Star gel pen.
I'd like to enter this card in the Use Kraft Card challenge over at Little Claire's
Thanks so much for stopping by, I really enjoyed playing with this
little cover gift & managed to make a total of 8 cards with it!
Happy Crafting!
