Addicted to CAS #229 Craft

Welcome to a new challenge at ATCAS and our hostess with the mostest Ceal has chosen craft as her code word.

So many ways you can go with this one, sewing, knitting, painting, card making, so why was it so difficult for me! mainly because I don’t have any of the related stamps, dies, etc but eventually came up with this.

I can’t say it’s one of my most favourite cards, and even though I love this die, it’s from the I dance by spellbinders series I’m just not happy with my card. The lady holding the glue bottle’s little legs move from side to side, so much fun

I eventually had my cast removed this week only to have my wrist put in a splint for the next few weeks it’s extremely painful and worse than the cast but at least I can now have a proper shower.It’s left me feeling sorry for myself as I was convinced I would be back to normal as soon as it was removed apparently broken wrists take a long time to heal and it really has dampened my crafting mojo as I can still only use one hand.

I was so happy to be chosen as an honorable addict over at Addicted to stamps and more for my giraffe card that certainly lifted my spirits and I look forward to getting back to two-handed crafting in the next few weeks.

Happy little stampers are asking us for anything goes with dies

As I haven’t used this die before I’m entering into the NBUS challenge#42

Do pop over to ATCAS my team mates have made some incredible cards and we look forward to seeing what you come up with.

Take care


Addicted to CAS #228 Birds

Hello to one and all. Today is a special day for me as I’m hosting my first-ever challenge at ATCAS and the theme I have chosen is birds. I just love the little cutties and over the past few months I have accumulated quite a few of them and even a couple of doves decided to lay their eggs in one of my jasmine trees.

It was fun watching them grow and yesterday they decided it was time to leave the nest. To be honest I felt very anxious as the weather was horrendous but they didn’t go far and momma bird is keeping an eye on them.

On to my card, as this is ATCAS I’ve kept it quite simple Mr. P even asked me if I had finished it !!! The nerve !!

Concord and 9th Eclectic Garden dies, such a beautiful set there are two gorgeous birdies right and left facing and I really did want to use both but for the sake of cas ness only one made the cut. A touch of distress oxide and a couple of gold blobs (I couldn’t help myself) plus the fantastic Mr.Holtz’s sentiment stickers and I was done. I’m finding it a tad difficult using only one hand and can’t wait for the plaster to come off It really is still quite painful and I have another couple of weeks before it is removed.

I was so fed up with my plain plaster cast and my annoying little sister Kal kept urging me to jazz it up so this is all I could manage with the help of Mr.P of course.

I do hope you will join us at ATCAS the DT have some amazing cards to inspire you and I know you all have a least one little birdie in your collection..

Take care
