Hello All

Bit late in the day for posting so going to be quick.

I've NOT been watching football (basically I'd rather watch paint dry) and I'm happily sat in a room with no TV! I can just about hear the shouting and jeering from the other room where hubby and daughter are glued to the box!

So enough of that ...

Here's my card for the latest CASology Challenge where the theme is Anniversary


I've used a 'dancing couple' die-cut which must be a freebie as I don't own the die but I thought it fit perfect. It's mounted on an embossed Rounded Tag die from Clearly Besotted with sentiment and hearts also Clearly Besotted 'Paired Up' set then finished with some metallic cord from my stash.

Next up is for the following challenges:
CAS Colours & Sketches
Color Throwdown
Clearly Besotted: Anything Goes
Addicted to CAS: Theme Transport
Pixies Crafty Snippet Playground

This Used:
Clearly Besotted: Going Places Stamp & Die Set, Sweet Little Sentiments, Landscape Die
MFT Die-namics: Snow Drift and Pierced Rectangle Stax
Promarkers, Gems from my stash      

Last but not least is my entry to this week's Freshly Made Sketches Challenge and as Football is so 'popular' right now I couldn't resist giving the card a 'footie' twist. Another gents card for the depleted box of handy to have in cards.

Card Recipe:
Card & Papers from my stash
Sizzix: Retro Circles embossing folder
Sentiment: Clearly Besotted - In the Frame set
Stars and Circles Nail heads - Josy Rose

Ok that's me done for tonight ... a quick tidy up and off to bed.

Thanks for stopping by and see you all soon.



  1. Thanks for playing along with us at CAS Colours & Sketches! Your card is so fun - love the little scene and how you incorporated the sketch!

  2. What fantastic cards!! Your hot air balloon card really caught my eye on the Color Throwdown challenge. I love the waves of colour and the balloon is just gorgeous. A perfect card!

  3. Three great card. The Dancing one looks like the TV show dancers on Dancing with the Stars! Fabulous die cut!

  4. Great cards, Sarah! It was the hot air balloon that caught my eye but I love the football card too as World Cup Fever has taken hold of my house too!
