My CASology first :o)


Hello there and welcome this Good Friday, I hope you're well, it's great to see you here, thank you for stopping by.
For quite a while now I have been meaning to make a card for the CASology challenge
I was visiting Darnell  her lovely card prompted me and today I had the opportunity............

So thanks Darnell :0)
There are some beautiful examples of the  design team's clever cards, very inspirational ladies, well done :0) The challenge is a word this time and the word is HOPE, at Easter entirely appropriate! Searching through my stamps I could only find one stamp with anything to do with hope on it,


This is a photo of my little gem :0) A Christmas cracker win, it's going to be so useful I can just tell, already on this card I used it for the corners (small on tag!) and for the little arrow.

A close up of the daisy's heart, lovely little beads!
I used a Daisy stamp by Hero arts, some washi tape and the sentiment is by PTI. Hand drawn stem and blacked edge for definition :0)

That's all from me today, I hope you have a lovely weekend and miss the snow that's been forecast  for us here in GB brrrrr -2 degrees overnight, it's blooming cold still!! Hugs Gay x

Ah, dang, Gay, I was really hoping you guys would catch a break with the nasty cold weather, specially for Easter. I feel so guilty with spring bursting all around me here.

Thank you so much for the surprising shoutout! Your card is CASlicious in every way! And those beads? Forget about it, they are the perfect touch of wild for your slick and graphic gem of a card!!

(Too fun to have that cracker gem with all it's fun uses!!)
