Hello lovely ladies
Welcome to a new challenge at ATCAS which for the next week, yes that’s right for one week only is being hosted by the super talented Sandie from London Days.
So come and see what the lovely Sandie chose for her code word.
Well I have to admit I struggled a little with this one, luxury has so many different connotations , I started thinking about the obvious things, fast cars, boats, travel, shoes, gin, shoes, gin handbags, did I mention gin ?. None of the above really inspired me and I was left with several unfinished cards . I had one thought that kept going around and around in my little noggin and in the end gave in……
This is my luxury……
Lady Cameo once again helped out , I paper pieced this super simple drawing ( took forever ) as my bin can testify and made a simple frame using my Spellbinders Card creator dies.
I liked the simplicity of it so much I made a framed version and hung it over our bed.
So what does luxury mean to you ? Now if you’re in need of a little inspiration then why not pop over to ATCAS to see what the rest of the DT have come up with to inspire us .
We have a fabulous sponsor for you this week Inspired by Stamping
The lucky winner will receive $15 gift voucher to spend at their store.
I would also like to play along with a new challenge to me A Creative Romance , its my first time playing along with these talented ladies and as they are looking to see some Kraft on our cards I think mine fits the bill !
Sadly the lovely Lyndal our guest Designer will be leaving us this week its been a real pleasure to have her with us at ATCAS this month.
Cant wait to see what you all come up with for this challenge , it’s always a pleasure to view your card so much inspiration , what a talented bunch of crafters you are.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.
Darling project! 🙂
You are so right Marie, home is luxury for us all, we all love hols but oh how we love to come home! And the CAS design really suits your idea and how wonderful you framed one for your bedroom x
Both of these are terrific Marie and the drawing is wonderful.
Love Chrissie x
Beautiful CAS pieces, love the framed version.
So perfect! We take our homes for granted – a true luxury to have a roof over our heads. I love your paper pieced card – aren’t you clever! Your framed version is gorgous and I love that you did it. xx
Totally inspired Marie, love the simplicity of the design. Just think what that would have cost in a home decor boutique 🙂 We are off to Spain on Tuesday and Flo has been in touch and we are hoping to meet up for lunch 🙂
Oh Marie – I just love these………so simple but so effective. Love the one you’ve hung above your bed, it’s gorgeous.
You are soooo very right! Home indeed is a luxury and love the way u designed ur card amazing as always!
Done it again haven’t you? Always so brilliant with your ideas and this is certainly a simple luxury we all love. It’s so ingenious I think I’ll do one for me. Thanks again Marie for being so clever.
Hope all is good with you 🙂
LOVE LOVE LOVE the framed version! The hand drawn is over the top amazing!
Hi Marie. So creative and perfectly CAS. Love that you have framed it to hang on the wall. Loll xx
I really love this Mrs P and I would buy your framed version, really fab! Hope you’re beginning to feel a bit better, take good care! Xx
Amazing, Marie … such a beautifully simple depiction of a wonderful idea … both your card and framed version are just lovely! Anita 🙂
How clever and a lovely card but it certainly looks stunning in the frame.
Beautiful projects Ugly Bum. Especially love the framed version. Can I have one!!
Hugs, Flo xx
which one do you want PF ?
Can I have one in country green. For my kitchen. Just a stamped card so that I can put it in a frame like what you have. he he!! Just think it is really lovely. I can wait until you next come to see me or maybe I will pop over and collect it just to annoy you!!! I am giving you fair warning….in case you want to move. Hey, I am not getting notifications of your blog posts again. I have tried re-entering the details.
To the coals!
CAS perfection Marie – LOVE the paper-pieced houses! The framed one is awesome – customers would pay good money for one of those.
Hope you are feeling much better – hugs, Sylvia xx
Your talent for packing the most WOW into the simplest card design is unparalleled, Marie! Indeed, having a home is a luxury, one I take for granted. That’s why this card is so moving. It has the endearing quality of a child’s drawing and everyone knows that children speak pure, from the heart. Your pp is perfect, too! You seriously should open an Etsy shop and sell that framed design!! I think of you often and hope you are progressing well in your recovery. Hugs, Darnell
It is not often that a whole site is inspiring to me. I have to admit yours is one of those sites. The creative insight is phenomenal for every card. I have to agree with Darnell. Children tell it like it is and if you aren’t paying attention it is easy to miss the message. I am going to put you on my side bar so I can drop in and say hello when you post. Your card is not only clean and simple, it has a story to tell.
That my dear is fabulous!!! 😀 I love it in both incarnations, the framed pic is just perfect, clever old you 😀 I do hope you’re feeling better and your leg isn’t as painful, hugs Gay x
This is a sweet card and what a nice gift it would be for newlyweds or as a housewarming gift.
Hi Marie – coming over from Darnells blog – so glad I did – this is fabulous – especially your framed version – LOVE it!
How clever you are, Marie! I love your CAS design…and how fun that you created a framed version of this sweet card!
Sending you my sincerest wishes that you are starting to feel better…Hugs!
Such beautiful cas projects – I just love them! I totally agree that being at home is a luxury….especially with time to make cards:) Hope you have a lovely week – hugs xx
This is beautiful. I love the white frame with the design exposed through it.
What a gorgeous design.
