Addicted to CAS #230 Autumn

Welcome to one and all! Time for a new challenge at Addicted to CAS and for the next fortnight our hostess with the mostest is the very talented Sue. So what has the lovely Sue chosen for us this time round…..


It’s a tad difficult to focus on Autumn here in Greece when the temperature is a lovely 28 but at least the nights are cooler so that’s something.

At the time of making this card, I was still wearing my splint and my wrist was quite painful so I decided to use my Silhouette Cameo . I printed the pumpkin image and created an aperture in another piece of card I added lots of foam tape under the aperture and placed the image below. I cut out the leaf and wedged it into the aperture(how many times can I write aperture in one paragraph lol ) I used Carved Pumpkin Distress Ink to add a touch of colour (how apt) the sentiment is also courtesy of my darling Cameo.

On another note, Mr. P and I had a few days away at a christening in Crete and it just so happened that we met 38 years ago there on holiday so we decided to revisit the scene of the crime

In front of the hotel that Mr.P worked at during his summer holidays 38 years ago

Mr. P looking fondly at the spot where he first laid eyes on me!

Here he decided it was enough of the romantic stuff and decided to wrestle with me regardless of my injured limb! There would have been more photos but our friend in charge of the camera couldn’t stop laughing so you’ve all had a lucky escape. I on the other hand decided I really must go to the hairdressers and have my roots done and Mr. P could do with a hair transplant.!!!!

We do hope you will join us at ATCAS for our Autumn challenge my team mates have some amazing cards to inspire.

Take care

  1. Another one of your amazing CAS cards Marie, so beautiful. The added leaf into the “aperture” is the perfect addition too. AW! What a great couple you make, lovely photos of you both.

  2. Good for you getting creative making cards well done. Thanks for sharing the personal photos it’s fun to put a face to your name 😊

  3. Loving this dimensional autumnal design Marie! I was very tempted to engage in a ‘mention aperture hundreds of times’ competition but there’s no catching up with you lol! Such lovely photos of you and Mr BaileyRosy reliving your first romantic liaison πŸ˜‰ Vicky x

  4. Firstly,I absolutely love the pics of you and Tango, how romantic to go back to where it all began….so many memories I’m sure.
    Now on to the card, I love how perfect this looks, absolutely crisp and sharp, and very realistic colours. I’m not a big fan of autumn(too close to winter for my liking) but this made me think of hot soup and warm jumpers.
    Couldn’t think of anything more autumnal than pumpkins, and I love the little leaf ❀️.
    Hope the arm mends soon, although you’re managing amazingly while it’s still hurting x

  5. Love your sweet CASlicious punkin design, Marie, but the lovey-dovey and fun photos of you and Mr. P stole the show!! I love them ~ and love your jacket!! Happy Anniversary! It’s great that you used the visit to walk down Memory Lane! Hugs, Darnell
