Hi All

How come it's taken almost all day to get my crafty mitts working despite gazing at all my gorgeous stash!!! Grrr that sometimes happens then amazingly I end up with 3!!!!

So first up is another one to add to the Less is More 'Turquoise' theme and also the Simon Says Stamp 'Happy Birthday' Theme.

I've used similar products and layout to the card here but I love the butterfly on this one which is from the Clearly Besotted - Elegant Butterfly set which I've offset on a glittered star die cut using Sizzix Framelits. Also from Clearly Besotted is the Rounded Tag Die and the sentiment from Fabulous Fuchsias. Half of the white panel has been embossed with a Darice honeycomb embossing folder and I've added some Doodlebug sequins, gems and hemp cord from my stash.

The next one is to enter the ColourQ challenge and I wanted something very CAS for a masculine card although not sure the colour scheme quite works for a male card so the following one for the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge may end up more appropriate

I've used blocks of cardstock from Papermania, sentiment from Clearly Besotted and some Doodlebug Sprinkles from Craft Mojo. I'm also going to head off to Pixies Crafty Snippet Playground with this one although the talent over there and fabulous use of snippets is becoming way too difficult to compete with. BUT as I've delved to the depths of my snippets box to find some little colourful bits I may as well have a go!

So here's my CAS(E) This Sketch one and I've used more Clearly Besotted products because lets face it I'm completely besotted with them! There's the Superstar set and In the Frame stamp and die set then I've added some Doodlebug sequins again from Craft Mojo.

That's all for me for today but thanks for stopping by and if you've time to comment I'd love your feedback.

See you soon.



  1. Wow Sarah you have been busy! I know what you mean about staring at your stash, where to begin? It usually strikes when a DT is due! All 3 of your cards are great, but if push came to shove I think the butterfly just pips it. :)

  2. Thanks for your comment on my blog. I love all of your cards, the middle one makes me think of paint charts. :)

  3. Love, love and love! Your cards are all so different but I love them all. I always forget about the snippets challenge, must try to remember as I'm often using up bits. If I had to choose I think your colour block card wins my vote. Thanks so much for your kind words on my blog today xx

  4. Hi Sarah,

    P.S I quite agree with the talent in the playground at the moment.

    Gosh, I do agree about the bar being raised in the snippets playground - it's getting harder every week to settle on a few picks and not every single one :(
