CAS Thank You

I needed a quick thank you card for my club hostess from Friday; she made me this cute little pin from a bamboo placemat slat (among many other things):


so I checked the CAS Challenge at Splitcoast to see what I could come up with!  The challenge is to use pink or coral with Kraft and another color of your choice.  I had been wanting to do a pink Trendy Trees card, so the FIRST one I came up with was this:


I do like this, but it really doesn't fit my definition of clean and simple.  So I revamped it down a bit:


Plus I got to use my fun Funky Forest wheel on this one!  It is definitely clean and simple!  So I am not sure which one I will send her.  This is something else she made for us:


It was so big it wouldn't fit on my counter! And it was yummy!

Hopefully after all my boring chores and paperwork I will have a little more time to stamp today!  Thanks for coming to visit me!

  16. Wow LeAnne, I love both these cards but possibly the second more so. That set and wheel are two of my new favourites and think I will have to CASE these -just gorgeous!

  17. Two questions:

    WHAT is the pin made of?


    WHAT is in that dessert??!! - OH MY, delish!

    Love your work - thanks for sharing,

  18. Hi Rollercoaster (didn't have your email address)!
    The pin is stamped on polyshrink plastic, colored, cut out and shrunk down with a heat gun, then mounted on a piece of bamboo cut from a place mat. There are holes in the pieces of bamboo where they are woven together; that is where she put the curly wire.
    The dessert is a strawberry was long and narrow, not sure what kind of pan she baked it in, but it had a cream filling and strawberries in between ! Yum!
