First outing !


Margaret C

I REALLY  like this card.

And all of a few minutes to make – the hardest part was lining up the post-it notes ! I CASEd this from the fabulous Heather, and it was an opportunity to use my longed for Lovely As A Tree set from Stampin’ Up for the first ever time. I swithered about putting a sentiment on it, but I like the sparseness of the card and the wintry feel (I hope) it evokes.

Hmmmm, ‘wintry’ and ‘sparse’… this is my mum’s birthday card !!!! Oh dear, well, hopefully the love with which it is made and sent smothers the negativity of these adjectives ! Happy birthday, mum !

I am going to make this another first – first ever entry into the CASology Challenge. The key word is ‘winter’ – um, yup ! I like the idea of keyword challenges – I suspect this site may become a favourite !

    I love this card it makes me want to CASE myself but use your lovely colour scheme. The way you have sponged sky is beautiful.
    Thanks for you kind words.

    I really like it too – it reminds me of Heather (and I see that Heather commented already!) Your sky is stunning and I love the idea of stamping the trees outside the sky ‘box’! Thanks so much for playing along with us at CASology this week, Margaret! That set is a classic and I’m sure you’ll be using it for a long time!

    Such a beautiful sky … almost northern lights-ish and I love the over the edge trees! Anita in France 🙂

    Masking is an art that is only perfected after many wasted efforts [at least in my craft room]. You nailed this one! Such beautiful colours! Thanks for joining in on the fun at CASology this week!
