Different one for me - CAS?


After my slight cheat of a CAS card for Karen's Doodles UK a few days ago, this one is real CAS I think?  I saw a similar layout (by Clare Curd I think) in a magazine and thought it'd work for this one - it's actually a sympathy card for an online friend who recently lost her dad, but I'm not keen on 'with sympathy' as a sentiment, just a personal preference, so it's 'thinking of you' instead.

I've used some gorgeous new papers that I couldn't resist on a recent visit to my local craft shop - they're 'Ella Blue' by GCD Studio.  The cardstock is coredinations, 2-layered butterfly cut with a Quickcutz die (I think), sentiment stamp was part of a magazine subscription gift and is by Stampin' Up, flat back pearls from stash.  I was about to say not a promarker in sight, but I did use a duck egg one to edge around the sentiment :o)

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
Apologies for being a rubbish blogger lately, I may have mentioned (in a moany whingey fashion) that I'm not very good in the heat, and it's been unbearable lately.  I kept going in the craft room and trying but I couldn't make a thing, and I've just felt drowsy and ill all the time.  It's a bit cooler today (hurrah!!!) so I can finally get crafting again - will try and do some blog visiting later too after I've made a couple of DT cards.

  1. Sometimes it's good to do something different and this is excellent. I am with you on 'Thinking of you' instead of sympathy :o)

  5. Hi Lisa,

    I'm the same with this heat, really struggling with my Mojo and just can't be bothered at all.

    Love your butterfly, it's a bit gorgeous and such a beautiful card. I do think your sentiment is a lot nicer too.

    Hope you feel more like your normal self soon. I love the sunshine but this incessant heat is getting a bit much now....

    Lots of love and big hugs xxx

  19. I can say without hesitation that this was the perfect card for the situation, and that I'm not fond of 'With Sympathy' either. Thank you! xxx
