CASing cards

Hi there

Yesterday my friend Pat came round to do some crafting... Sometimes we come up with a new card, other times Pat likes to CASe one of my cards and occasionally we trawl Pinterest to find some we can CASe together... The latter is what we did yesterday

First we were inspired by this card 

from an amazing designer at MFT - Donna Mikasa

Here's our version ... 

This is the only skyline die I had so we cut it a few times and layered it after first applying various ink pads and water to a piece of CS to create a colourful look

The second card we CASed is this card 

by a super talented lady ... Maureen Merritt (WPlus9)
Fortunately I had the same stamp set by WPlus9 and here's our take

If you have never visited Donna or Maureen's blogs please click on the links and check out their lovely designs... I just know you'll love them as much as I do.

Thanks so much for your visit... Have a great day!

Dog Lover

Hello there...

Two of my dog loving friends friends celebrate birthdays this week so it was easier to make 2 cards more or less the same

The only difference is the colours

Both backgrounds were sponged in various inks, sprayed with water and splattered with white paint

The little pups were coloured with promarkers

Kinda cute don't you think?

Thanks so much for stopping by - enjoy your day / evening

City Crafter 282

Good morning friends!

It's time for a new challenge at City Crafter where we have Kirsty hosting for us this week
The challenge theme is 
Scribble Doodle

"Make a card or project that includes scribble or doodling" Hop on over to the blog for full details

I scribbled some wonky lines to frame my shaker

For my shaker I sponged a background, adding some gold splats and stamped the grass. I made the shaker adding beads and sequins and the bird and branch (cut on my Cameo) was adhered on top of the acetate.

 The sentiment stamp is from the Doodle Buds stamp set by Wplus 9 and it was just perfect for this challenge

 Guest Designer this week is our winner from week 276 Theresa! Click the link on her name to go visit her lovely blog

Thanks so much for your visit - I hope you'll be inspired to join us at CCCB this week

 Before I go I just want to wish my dear friend Pat a very Happy Birthday! I know she often pops in to my blog

Have a great day!

Edit ... I've just seen that the latest challenge from Colour Me is Pumpkin Pie! 

So I'm going to enter this card there ... Well, it is kinda pumpkin coloured

Colours of October

Good morning!

It's time for a new word prompt at

This week the prompt has been chosen by Kirsty and it's
 Colours of October

I do hope you are not fed up with my garden shots... it's all I have for now

This time of year we usually associate with the colours of reds, golds and copper and I guess Halloween colours, black, orange, purple
Here in my part of the UK Autumn has been a tad late in arriving and surprisingly we still have a lot of flowers and greenery but some of the plants and trees are changing

They make for a beautiful display ... Even the dark ones

But one thing that isn't turning is last year's Christmas tree which I left in it's little pot

Fresh new green branches are appearing ... If we're lucky we'll be using it again this year - I wonder how long we'll be able to keep using this tree? 

Link up your Colours of October with us at

And go visit the blog to see what everyone is sharing

Have a beautiful day

World Card Making Day


Ok, so it's world card making day and I wanted to participate and actually I did make a card but I can't share it yet because I'm worried my friend will see it here before her birthday ... plus it's too dark now to get a decent photo... I know I'm late!

Sooo... not sure if it counts but I can share a little peek at the project that I've been working on for my special needs group

It's a wall hanging, 3D plant pot sort of thing

They like to stick things, well, that's easy for them and for the support workers that come along with some of them...
There's lots for them to stick here ... it's taken me over 2 days so far to make enough pieces for 20+ people

I hope you are having a wonderful day or evening depending on where you are ...

Big hugs for now

I ♥ October

Good morning!

October is upon us and we've had the typical chilly and foggy mornings which have surprisingly turned into warm sunny days....
I like October ... It's kind of the lull before the storm when I can savour the last of the flowers, see the colours changing on the trees and take a breath before the Christmas rush starts....

Talking of rush, it was very busy at club last night and now I'm in the middle of a project for this week.  I did sneak some time out to make a little shaker box

Sometimes you just have to stop what you're doing and move on to something else

Use up some more of the little bits that accumulate everywhere

Have a peaceful day and enjoy this beautiful month

Till soon

~ Ros ~
