Good Morning Everyone,

There is a new challenge over at As You Like It today and we would like to see a project showing us whether you prefer Fully Fussy or Clean & Simple.

I think my style is normally in between the two extremes, but just lately I've been trying a few more CAS cards, especially Christmas ones due to postage, so I thought I'd have a go at a birthday one.  

I've die cut the flowers and 'Sending' from a discarded inky background which I didn't really like so I'm pleased I've found a use for that.  Both are from Simon Says stamp and the 'birthday wishes' from Kaisercraft has been stamped in metallic silver and cut out with a stitched rectangle. I've used white linen cardstock to make the base so it matched the die cut square.  I couldn't resist adding 3 little bubbles.

The sponsor is:

with a voucher for the lucky winner

Just as an aside, has everyone's Reading List changed to a small box at the top of the page?  I used the list quite a bit for looking at challenges etc. but with this new box being so small I can hardly see what they say. It's so annoying! 

Challenges I would like to enter:

Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes
Creations in Pink - AG mainly in pink
Time Out - Spring has sprung
Creatalicious 212 - Anything Goes

Have a good day.  I will be finishing off planting up some of my pots as today looks as though it might be a bit cooler.  I can't work in the full sun, then having a game of tennis with some friends.

Thank you for visiting and take care.

I use the reading list every day. It's still on the left hand side and I can click on it. I see however that it's also at the top right in an itty bitty square. I'm scared to click on it for fear I'll lose the one on the left side.

Lovely card. I do like CAS I'm just not great at it. I did make one yesterday. I'm trying.

Also, I no longer get comments on my gmail account. I don't know what happened to that. [Bunny]

Beautiful and elegant. My reading list has disappeared, I don't like change, so scared of just clicking things in case I lose more. Elaine

Love your CAS card Lynne. It is so beautiful and shows that you don't have to cover your card blank with loads of layers, so make a stunning card. Hugs, Carol

Hi Lynne

What a great card. Love the soft delicate look you have achieved.

Love all the die work!

My reading list hasn't changed at all .. .. I hope they aren't famous last words and mine goes pear-shaped when I switch on tomorrow!

Hope yours sorts out soon.

Love Jules xx
