Addicted to Cas

I haven't played over at the Addicted to CAS challenge for ages but when I saw their codeword was red just couldn't help playing along !
I am loving these Clearly Besotted robots and so decided to use them for todays card.... I think my card is pretty self explanatory! I apologise for the photo I must have taken well over 40 photos but even with my light box still looks dull but I'm sure you get the idea :)
Thanks for taking a look

Muse DT

Hi everyone, I am so excited to be your Muse designer this week , Muse has been a long time favourite challenge for me as everyone is so friendly but the best bit has to be for me ,the voting for your favourite card in the gallery.....

 So for my first card I decided to go with all my favourites !

I went with  die cut panels  in the middle (my default setting as you know!) then  coloured it with spun sugar  distress ink and stamped some text on it ,before adhering my sentiment  - which takes me about a dozen goes as it never stamps evenly ...well that just might be me actually:) and my all time fav flower from Clearly Besotted added off the edge and finished with liquid pearls.

Really,really hoping that you will play along with us this week and can't wait to see your take on my card and what element/s inspire you!

Thanks for taking the time to look

Muse 149

Don't you just love those gorgeous cheery spring like flowers and colours on Tracey's Muse card this week?? It brightened up my Monday no end I can tell you !
So I made a quick card to play along using Clearly Besotted flowers and sentiment.Wish we got papertrey stamps etc over here, those flowers would have been snapped up I can tell you...just  LOVE them!
I was of course inspired by the colours and layout.The twine well that was a save as is the sentiment I had finished picked it up to photograph it and yup I put  splodges of ink so the sentiment and twine hide them nicely ... I always seem to be doing saves lately!
Thanks for looking

Muse 148

This weeks Muse is Anita and I love her so CAS card !! I was inspired by her flowers, colours and her layout and sentiment.

I stamped my image a few times on a panel of  white card and yes even using a stampamajig I went slightly wrong with the last one :)
I then coloured them in as close to Anita's colours as I could, originally was only going to do a few coloured flowers ....but then I got carried away !
 I drew the black lines with a sharpie, before adding the Clearly besotted sentiment.
Mine is definitely a bit busier than Anita's but I kinda like it so thanks Anita for getting me to try a different style !
...and thank you for taking a look !

Naughty or Nice

 Not sure if my card will fit the challenge over at The Naughty or Nice challenge (a new one to me,found it while  commenting here ) but hey ho I'm sure they will let me know! and  loving their kooky  takes on their challenge blog after all who doesn't want to be naughty sometimes hee he 

Think mine would fit the nice category more as its for my hubby .. one day while getting my  pulse taken in hospital not long after we were married  I  saw him coming in the door and the doctor said she wondered why my pulse had sped up ,he of course has never let me forget this  ...for over 28 years !!! 
Thanks for taking the time to look

Welcome back Muse!

Wishing you all a happy and healthy 2016!

Hope you all have got over the excesses of the festive season, I know that I'm dreading putting on my work trousers tomorrow! :)

I can't tell you how excited and delighted  I am to be part of the Muse team  !!!!!  and now that our favourite challenge is back I feel like I am meeting up with old friends again :)
....and isn't Michele's card a corker,love the puny sentiment , and the colours. Those were the  two mains things that led me to my card  and I  also kind of follow Michele's layout .As for the patterned paper (you know by know how much I struggle with that!) I replaced by embossed hearts  -please note  Michele I said embossed  ;) and finally my image and sentiments are from Clearly Besotted.

Thanks for taking the time to look!
