Goodbye Addicted to Stamps and More and Hello Addicted to CAS !

Over at Addicted to Stamps and More its time for a new challenge and our theme this week is flowers a nice easy challenge I think you will agree. Sadly it will be my last as a DT member,  sniff , sniff , but do not fear I’m not going far ! The lovely Kylie owner of ATS&M has decided that one challenge blog is just not enough and the crazy but lovely lady has set up Addicted to CAS and has asked me to join the team !

This will be a fortnightly challenge and as its name suggests is strictly for the CAS card makers amongst  you we will also have some wonderful sponsors joining us so there will be prizes yippee !!!!

Our first challenge will go live on the 17th of November so do hope you can join us.

I’m really sad to be leaving this team as they are all such a wonderful group of talented ladies and we have all bonded so well but quite a few of them will be on the new DT so we can still keep in touch.

Right onto my card !

I embossed the frame with one of my Stampin up wheels and white embossing powder the frame had previously been coated with pink Pan Pastels. I raised it up with foam to give a little dimension and added a lovely piece of embossed card inside. The flower was made with a Sizzix bigs die and  coloured with Pan Pastels, the brad I made with my i-top brad maker.

I will be leaving in a few days time for London to look after my friend Dolly whom I’m sure some of you remember , as most of my time will be spent at hospital please forgive me if I’m late passing by. I would just like to thank Irini of Get Creative, Lin of Crafty Cardmakers and Kylie for being so understanding and allowing me to take a break from my DT obligations it’s very much appreciated.

I do hope you will come and play with us this week at Addicted to Stamps and More and it would be lovely to see you at Addicted to CAS on November 17th.

Take care

  1. Marie, what a beautiful, soft and feminine card. Love the pink and white embossed frame. The white embossed background adds so much texture and really makes your pretty pink flower pop off the page. Great job! Looking forward to working with you on the Addicted to CAS Design Team. Until then, take care of yourself and your friend … my thoughts are with you!

  2. A show stopper indeed. Dolly must be so happy you are coming to help her — she’s a lucky lady to have a dear friend like you whom I’m sure she is so comfortable with. Take care. See you when you return. xoDonna

  3. Marie, what a cute card. The pale pink is really girly an I also like your frame! I’ll be seeing you since I intend to take part in the CAS Challenges. For now, best of luck and strength for your friend! You’ll be in my thoughts.

  4. This is a beautiful card Marie. Love the soft pink you’ve used and that flower is gorgeous coloured with the Pan Pastels. I’m looking forward to working with you over at A2CAS. In the meantime take care and have a safe journey to London. Our thoughts are with Dolly.

  5. Fabulous card Marie that flower looks as if it’s growing out of the card! Love the brad:)
    I’m sorry you’re leaving ATS&M but I will catch up with you on the new challenges. I’m sorry that your trip to London is not for a happier reason as we could perhaps have met up for a gin or two:) I do hope Dolly’s treatment is successful.

  6. Gorgeous embossing! And such a FABULOUS flower, Marie:)
    Sorry I haven’t been around recently. We were on holiday for just over two weeks, and then when we got back I felt rotten for a week…and I’m still not feeling 100%.
    I hope you and yours are keeping fit and well xx

  7. Marie, love the simple elegance of both the design and just the two colours. Just the thing to brighten a cold Winter’s day.

    I shall be thinking of you and Dolly, and I bet she is so glad to have a great friend like you in her corner right now. Gentle hugs to you both

  13. Hiya Marie, firstly congratulations on your new DT post! Your fabulous and unique style will be a great asset to the team. Your card is beautiful and so very pretty and feminine. I’ve never heard of an i-top brad maker, so will have to google that one!

    My thoughts are with you and your friend Dolly, it must be a great comfort to her to have you near. Take care of yourself my friend.

    Lots of scouse hugs
