Addicted to CAS #37 Grunge

Yes that’s right time once again for a new challenge over at ATCAS and what a challenge we have for you !

Our fearless leader Smiley Kylie has a very challenging and interesting code word for us all.

ATCAS - code word grunge-1

 So many different ways to go with this one and the DT have made some astonishing cards, I was really blown away by their creativity and when I saw what everyone else made I nearly threw mine in the bin but hey ho  you can only do what you can do !

Our leader Kylie is currently swanning round europe enjoying the trip of a lifetime. Last week she was in London staying with Sandie one of our team members from ATCAS and meeting up with some of the other lovely ladies. She is currently in Spain with my mate Florence from Florence and Freddie. I’ll be joining them in a few days for a week can’t wait! do hope they have left some gin for me !!!!!!!!


I got really inky and messy with this one, lots of Dylusions sprayed randomly onto smooth card . I used my Cameo to make a stencil and cut the image and sentiment and lots of lovely embossing paste and there you have it. The sentiments a bit random and this card is unlikely to find a home, I mean who would you give that to right !

We are once again being sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps

7 fantastic digs to be won !!

Also the lovely Anita will be sharing her last card with us as guest DT member so you don’t want to miss that !

Must dash have to go try and find myself an Abba rig out as Florence has suggested we dress us as them and go on a pub crawl in Spain !!!!!

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend

Take care


Addicted to CAS #36 Far Away

Hello lovely ladies time for a new challenge over at ATCAS and the theme for the next fortnight has been chosen by the lovely and talented Michele.Now what has she chosen for us all…well come and see

ATCAS - code word far away

I had to get out the old thinking bonnet for this one and after much deliberation I decided to go with a bit of humor. I tried it out  on my ” Laugh O Meter ” aka Mr P who didn’t see the funny side and after five minutes of trying to explain it……still nothing , as he walked away I heard him muttering ” British humor ” so here it is


What no one else got it either !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Come on !!!!!! sorry I missed you….ducks …targets….arrows……ok forget it then !

Ok so if you want to see some real inspirational cards beautifully made and easily recognizable as a take on the code word then pop on over to ATCAS. Not only have the DT outdone themselves but we have a fantastic new guest designer for the next two weeks……come on down and take a bow Anita. Yes we are lucky to have the fabulously talented and all round good egg  Anita from France joining us for the next two challenges. Not only that but we are sponsored by

Before I leave you all I wanted to give a bit of a shout out to a fabulous blogging friend of mine Florence from Florence and Freddie who has a birthday today as does my lovely mum. Florence’s blog was one of the first blogs I ever visited,  not only was I blown away by her amazing talent but she made me laugh too and I’m still laughing after three years ! We have become firm friends and I love her dearly and  best of all I will be meeting her in two weeks time. She most kindly invited myself and our boss the gorgeous Kylie from ATCAS to come stay with her in Spain. Kylie as some of you know lives in Australia and I live in Greece so we will all be meeting up how crazy is that !

Put your voices together for the birthday song

Happy birthday to you

You were born in the zoo

with the elephants and the monkeys

and you look like one too ( not you mum )

Hip hip hooray !!!!!!

wishing you all a wonderful day

Take care
