.... Hi again! I'm back a bit quicker than expected - got all the washing and ironing finished quicker than expected - so free time to play!!! And that's good because as soon as I saw the challenge at CASology - CAS48, cue word YELLOW, I knew what I'd be making. The card also works for the current Addicted to CAS Challenge - ATCAS14, cue word CIRCLES - here there are many!!! Here's my card:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse - My Island; My Favourite Things - First Class Friend; Verve - Learning to Sail
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Daffodil Delight; Memento - London Fog
Dies: Lil' Inkers - Stitched Squares #6; Memory Box - Circle Burst Sm
Accessories: SU DP - Daffodil Delight; White Lustre Card
This came together so quickly - I think it took 30 minutes from start to finish!!! The cue word yellow just shouted sunshine to me. I used the polka dot bright paper from Stampin' Up! to make the mat layer; I also stamped a little sun on this paper and cut it out. I used the Lil' Inker squares to cut out the white layer and then used the Memory Box die to create a "sun". I love the words on this sentiment, absolutely perfect for the card. I finished off the inside with a mat layer in yellow card and on the white panel a heartfelt sentiment.
Kathryn has just come home from school, weighed down by the contents of her school locker. The children had to clear everything out today. I think the last couple of days consist of fun activities - films, parties and signing of the Year Book. I can't believe how fast the past year has gone. Kathryn really has enjoyed her first year at an American Middle School - junior high!!! She's grown up such a lot too!
I think that really is all for today. The weather has turned out to be much nicer than expected and I think I need to do a bit of weeding before we fly to the UK. See you tomorrow.
