Over at The Outlawz I have entered this card for Wednesday's Sketch Challenge.

I used white cs as a base and popped another white cs embossed with CB Houndtooth. Cut inked floral image Gumnut Brush by Stamp It Australia with Spellbinders Labels 18 and sponged around edges. Flower tips have perfect pearls. Green twine was intertwined over ribbon. 3 pp drops finished the image.

A CAS card for the current Perfect Sentiments Challenge

Over at Perfect Sentiments their current challenge is to do a Distressed Thank You card and since I have been away I thought I would do a CAS one. So here it is -

Pretty simple really. Aqua cs has been topped with white for backing and a further aqua piece of cs has been embossed with CB Bird Call and distressed to show the outline. I distressed the edges also and added ribbon and sentiment from SU to say Thank You. There you have it.

Back Home to Craft

I have been MIA for a few weeks now. First I went to visit my sister who lives about 4 hours from me outside Toowoomba and stopped by to have lunch with an old work mate. We stayed longer than we expected but hey anytime spent with family is GOOD. After coming home from there we had to repack our port (as it is called here in Q'land) suitcase to all others and headed south to the Sunshine Coast to celebrate a 90th surprise birthday gathering where we caught up with more friends we hadn't seen for a few years. Lots of fun and laughter for the week end and again stayed longer than expected. Now we are finally home and settled I now have time to get back to crafting. I so missed doing challenges so have been busy since I got back and have got a few done.
Below is the card I made for this special occasion.

The cs is metallic grey and topped with metallic apricot It is scored in the middle and topped with cb folder cut and placed over the top. Behind the poinsettia is the Cherry Lynn Italian Flourish die which has the Spellbinders Poinsettia added and finished off with a centre pearl to match the leaves. Spellbinder Tag is popped and a 90 cut out from CB alphabet and pearls either side. Apricot ribbon added to finish it off. 

I wll be back soon to add some cards I recently finished for a few challenges I would like to enter.
