CAS at Crafty Catz

Hi folks hope you are enjoying the start to the Easter Holidays although so many people seem to be working them. Also I have noticed I have a few new followers. Thanks for taking the interest in my little blog and if you have time please leave a comment always love to hear what you think of my work. Today at Crafty Catz it is the talented and lovely Janette's turn to pick our theme and she is letting us have another easy week. She would like to see you make a Clean and Simple card this week.
We had a wonderful turn out last week and we have to make BIG APOLOGY to you that we didn't get to as Mr Linky and blogger wasn't playing for the design team to jump to your blogs.
Our sponsor this week is CRAFTY EMMA's
Ok now to my card for your inspiration. This is another card I don't like making it is a Sympathy Card and I always like to make these CAS .

Papers are from my stash had them forever. Image is Pink Petticoat Dandelion Wishes and I am not sure if they still do this. Black ribbon for the bow and some purple spotted ribbon from Crafty Ribbons. I have added just a tiny touch of glitter to the flower centres. Mounted the image on purple and black card.
Well that's it hope that you can find time to join us we love popping along to see what you have come up with it inspires us too. So have a wonderful Easter and Stay Safe what ever you are doing.

Craft Challenges you to Easter or Spring

Good Evening  to you was this your last day at work have you finished for a nice long weekend if so do you have time to join us in another challenge I do hope so. Thursday means it is Craft Challenge time and this week with Easter almost apon us we have decided that if you need any last minute Easter creation s why not share them with us or if you are finished why not make something for Spring.

Yes we are so lucky to have 4 sponsors so pop on over to the challenge blog to see what they are giving away and checkout the rest of the teams creations.
For my card I went with Spring and a image from our March Monthly sponsor The Stamping Boutique
keep it CAS with just matting of card to co ordinate with the flower paper from my unknown pad. Pink Frame is embossed with white lace pattern and I think makes the image pop. Few pearls and a of course some yummy pink ribbon to tie back to the frame. I have left this as an open card but have sent to my Aunt as it is her birthday and she is Welsh and loves Daffs.

Well hope this has encouraged you to get in your crafty space and make a spring/ easter card. Will be back tomorrow with my Crafty Catz card for you and Happy Easter.

Easter at Creative Inspirations

Good morning halfway through the week and hopefully it is a short one for you with the Easter Holidays. My Son is working good Friday and Easter Monday Grrrrrrr Trafford Centre what did we do when they didn't open Sundays and late evening we managed and I bet they took they same money.
Anyway with Easter round the corner Creative Inspirations would like to see Easter cards.
Our sponsor for this weeks challenge is our Monthly sponsor Handy Hippo who is kindly giving the winner at Fab Wild Rose Studio Stamp and some Wood embellishments
For my card,I have gone all Girlie. I just love this colour combo it is a little more aqua than in the picture. 
The image is from another fab talented artist i recently found on Esty called Mayzyart you can find it here.  Framed the image with a nestie. Used my M.S.rabbit punch on the boarders and painted them with liquid pearls. Few blue gems. Also no girlie card can be without some lovely Pink Ribbon. The pink spotted paper is from a Garden Centre and it had no name on but was just fab quality for the price. Opps nearly forgot the image is coloured with my promarkers and the layout is Sketch n Stash.
