A Little CAS

Greetings.  Welcome.  Have you had a grey and generally yukky day?  I hope not but here it felt more like November today.  I did try and do a bit out in the garden but just wasn't inspired and once I got wet I decided that I'd done enough and it was time to craft......

I decided to make some tape using masking tape.  I used various inks, Distress, VersaMagic, Memento.  Stamps from Crafty Individuals, Lawn Fawn and unknown others.  

I've used a cream card base and blended some DI.  The keen ones amongst you will note the uneven top here verses the straight one in the next picture.  That's because I'm messy!!  I had to redo the whole thing when I didn't check my stamps hadn't picked up extra ink around the edge!!  So on the next attempt I decided I wanted a straight line.  

I had stamped the bird pair but they seemed to be just hanging there and then I saw this card by Laurie and decided to try and add a sentiment to take the line across the card.  Pleased, except for that silly little heart I thought would be cute to join the two words!! I told you I can't draw.......

My card is joining the fun at

Gosh that's a busy little card.  Well, I don't mean busy cos it's CAS but....  oh well whatever.  Thanks for dropping by and for any comments you feel like leaving behind.  I appreciate them and the time you have taken here.  Have a great evening.
