Lazy Sunday ... wot? AGAIN!!!

Morning all
Wow! Was it me or was it hot on Saturday? We got up pretty early with the intention of hitting the grocery store before it got too crowded - should have said before it got too HOT!!! Went to sit outside and read but .. you guessed it - too hot for me!! Still, around 18:00 it was perfect BBQ weather!
It's a smidge cooler this morning so ...... off to the table of craftiness and, after a quick clear up so I could ACTUALLY see my table ...... a snippets card for the challenge over at Pixies Crafty Workshop, where the only rule is that you have to use snippets of card and, let's be honest, who DOESN'T have loads of those little pieces that you are SURE will come in handy? I also made it a CAS birthday card which fits perfectly in with the challenge of "Birthday" over at CAS on Sunday - double handy! And at Addicted to CAS the current challenge is "SUN"

Materials used:
  • 15cm square white, 300gsm, scallop edged card and matching sized envelope
  • Snippets of: white, yellow and turquoise card
  • Perfect layering rulers (1/16") and a craft knife
  • Hero Arts scribble "sun" stamped in Memento dandelion ink
  • Fiskars sentiment stamped using Versafine majestic blue ink

And there you have it, a CAS birthday card featuring sun AND snippets - BINGO!
Now, it's less of this laziness for me, I'm off to hit the shower and then begin preparations - we have dinner guests this evening and we're having a BBQ BUT I have to tidy the reserve craft room (sorry, dining room), just in case!!. I MUST have been a boy scout in a previous incarnation!

Have a fab Sunday and, HAPPY CRAFTING peeps!

What an effective card Kathy! So funny about your clearing the dining table of craft goodies - sometimes I want to work on a totally clear desk with plenty of space and decant stuff to our bed across the landing. Wouldn't be the first time there's cries of anguish when I forget to replace everything before bedtime!

Hugs, Di xx

Fabulous CAS card Kathy. LOVE that scribbled sun image. The small hit of turquoise really makes the yellow pop even more - great colors together! Thanks for joining us at ATCAS.
