Happy Saturday All

... Word to self don't put 'I'll have another creation tomorrow' on the blog! Don't know why but just ran out of time this week and never got to re-open the craft cupboard!

So finally I've got 2 cards to share on this post and an extra one in a while ... first up is a combined entry to CAS(E) This Sketch, Color Throwdown and Clearly Besotted 'Spring' themed challenge.

Despite having received some of the new release from Clearly Besotted this week I'm still addicted to the Elegant Butterflies set which I've used here although I have sneaked in a little sentiment from the new Design a Tree set.

It's not really obvious from the photograph but all my 'blue' butterflies have been wink of stella...ed plus the centre of the other butterflies. I've used a couple of enamel dots from My Minds Eye and backing card from Papermania.


Next up is my entry to this week's CASology challenge where the theme word is 'Wet'. Having hunted high and low in my stash I found this Whale digi image from Pink Petticoat (Big Fella Collection) which I've paper-pieced using papers from Echo Park. I've sponged the sea with some sponge daubers and added a computer generated sentiment to some MFT Die-namics fish-tail flags along with a Happy Birthday sentiment from Clearly Besotted.  The enamel dots are from My Mind's Eye.

This layout was featured on the Fusion Challenge here a few weeks ago and I've kept it in mind to use again. I think the 'wave' effect at the bottom combined well with the image but don't look too close as it's not very well free-hand cut!


Ok back in a minute with another one ...



  1. you have made some beautiful cards Sarah

  2. These are awesome Sarah! Love the colours on your first card. And your whale is super cute. Thank you so much for joining us this week at CASology

  3. Great couple of cards, Sarah. I love how you've used the same as me the other day, Elegant Butterflies with the sentiment from Design a Tree. I too haven't used my new ones yet! haha

    Can I ask, how do you get your challenge pics alongside one another? I'm pretty much self-taught on blogger so just insert pic straight from my PC, then these are saved in a Picasa Web Album but can't figure out how to position them other than middle, left or right, then the next one just goes below. Do you save yours online somewhere like Photobucket, then upload via the URL? Any help will be gratefully received as I think the Picasa web albums have a size limit too! Thank youuuuuu!!! xx

  4. Both gorgeous Sarah-you do the Elegant Butterly set proud-another fabulous creation :)
