CAS Shabby


Happy Monday, everyone!  Are you looking for Merry MondayLesley is sick today, so it’s going to be a wee bit late!  Instead, I played with the CAS sketch challenge at SCS, which I haven’t done in a long, long time!  I also used the challenge from the Shabby Tea Room as my inspiration:

Obviously, my card is not really shabby, but I so loved the colors and images in this photo, I had to use it as my starting point:


We were to use polka dots, flowers, yellow and green….I think I got it covered!  I used a retired die for my flower, layering it three times; polka dot paper is from Polka Dot Parade; gingham and sentiment stamps are PTI.  Isn’t that center sweet?


I hope Lesley feels better soon…perhaps I should have made this into a get-well card for HER!!!  Have a blessed Monday!


A yogurt “picnic” on the patio!

  9. Hi LeAnne,
    I saw your card this morning on the CAS gallery at SCS and immediately said, "Wow!" LeAnne, this is such a breath of springtime. You really did a great job with the photo inspiration. It's a wonderful interpretation!!
    Your colors are prefect (especially that green) and the design for your CAS - Prefect!

    A beautiful springtime card - just right for a celebratory yogurt on the patio (she's getting so big!).

    P.s. Thank for the link to the The Shabby Tea Room site too. I had not heard of it.
