CAS-ual FRIDAYS CFC88 Love Letters

Hello lovely ladies !

Hope you are all well and in fine fettle this lovely Saturday morning/afternoon/evening. I’ve just finished taking my Christmas decorations down in my studio , yes I know its February but they were sooooo pretty I just couldn’t bear to part with them !

Actually if the truth be known ( which it is now ) I had made tons of gorgeous  and very intricate vinyl snowflakes with my Cameo and adhered them to the black glass wall which runs the length of my craft studio. The little devils refused to assist me in their removal and clung on for dear life !!!! It’s taken days to get the rotters off , I’ve broken all my nails,my plastic ruler and my nerves are a jangling all over the place. Once I’d removed them all I had to scrape them off the wooden floor !! That vinyl sure is sticky ! another couple of hours spent on my hands and knees !!! and then I remembered that I had plastered (tastefully) my shop window with intricate vinyl hearts for Valentines ,Nooooooooooooooo ! I must delegate their removal !!!


CAS-ual FRIDAYS has a great challenge this week


Its been ages since I took part in one of their challenges and as I love my hearts thought I would play along


My lovely friend cameo once again comes into its own

I cut strips of coloured vellum and placed it in alternate rows behind the hearts and then matted with more lime vellum and popped it up onto black card.


Another simple Cameo creation with a lovely sparkly pink heart

This is all I could manage to make as my lickle fingers are sooooo sore from all the scraping, excuses , excuses, I know !

Do pop over to CAS-ual FRIDAYS to see the magnificent inspirational work by the DT always a source of wonderment to me, and so many fabulous entries…..

Before I go……


Here’s my little porker Rosy posing in front of the snowflake wall !

Right off to work to see if I can find someone to delegate operation heart removal to !

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend !

  1. Hello There Cameo Queen

    Wonderful cards yet again your work always looks so beautiful.

    Don’t think Rosy is going to help you remove the snowflakes by the looks of it–just leave them then they will be ready for next year 🙂

    Love Chrissie xx

  2. WONDERFUL WONDERFUL cards, love the bright of the first and the pure simplicity of the second, Rosy looks like she has work to do and doesn’t want to. I wonder if your delgate thoughts have rubbed off on her. LOL

  3. Absolutely brilliant cards Marie, both so stunning and love the hot pink and lime green on the black.
    Poor you with the decorations.

  4. Really gorgeous and striking cards Marie and the simplicity is stunning.
    Sorry to hear about the nails and hope they recover soon, definitely one to delegate next time!
    Cute pooch too!
    Hope you’re well.
    Hugs, Fliss xx

  5. OOOOooo! Does not sound good at all! Rosie looks pretty cute with a snowflake on her ear though. Cards are exquisite, incredible and fabulous. ‘nough said. Let those nails grow and smile as you watch someone else remove the hearts! I’d be over to help in an instant, however, sorry …. I’m out of town. :o) hugs, Donna

  6. Well it looks like the vinyl won this round! Im looking forward to hearing about round 2. Now, gorgeous cards Marie! I love seeing your cameo creations xx

  7. Gorgeous cards Marie, so much to choose from in the Silhouette shop! Love the coloured vellum:) Hope your nails recover soon and that the possible delegates do not read your blog!!

  8. Two fabulous cards, Marie. The colours on your first one are gorgeous…they remind me of liquorice allsorts. Such beautiful neat work on both cards, too. Your Cameo work is always amazing!!
    Sweet little Rosy looks like she’s modelling a snowflake earring…Bless her! xx

  9. Oh My Toes, I would NOT want to mess with Rosy. She looks like she means business! I’m so sorry you had a devil of a time removing the flippin snowflakes, Marie, and I hope you found some bloke with no fingernails to help with the Valentine removal!

    On to your cards, I only have one word. Perfection!

  10. Hi Marie, you and your Cameo are an unbeatable combination!! looove your cards and all their texty gorgeousness :0) the vinyl snowflakes story is too funny… I thought rosie had one stuck to her ear at first!!! Definitely get help for the valentines hearts :0)

  11. These are both amazing Marie – really clean, graphic designs. Hope you managed to delegate the rest of the decorations away… love the way Rosy is wearing one of the snowflakes as an earring! Vicky x

  12. What wonderful cards! I especially LOVE the first one…those colors with the black…soooooo cool!! Your dog is adorable, too!! So happy that you were a part of the challenge this week at CAS-ual Fridays:)!!

  13. Your creations with your Cameo never fail to impress me – stunning!
    As for that little porkey, definitely bring a huge smile to my face today!!!

  14. Hiya Marie! Rosy is sooo cute, especially looking all festive with a snowflake stuck to her ear (or so it looks!). Removal of these is most definitely a job for delegating! Your cards are stunning, I love the lime and pink against the black, and that gorgeous pink sparkly heart.

    I hope you are well Marie, I’m so looking forward to seeing you soon 🙂

    Take care
    Maria xxxxx
