Sending a little Sunshine for Addicted to CAS

 Hi Everyone.  Happy Saturday.

It's the fabulous Ceal's turn to host our Addicted to CAS challenge this week and she has a very season appropriate code word for us.  Having just returned from the UK I have experienced much of this particular code word in the last 10 days :-)

 Before we get to my card this week, I invite you to check out the blog of our very talented Guest Designer - Caroline at Keep it Sweet & Simple

 The winner of our challenge this week will win a $10 shopping spree at:


For my card I used my WPlus9 stamps and matching dies and decided to make a shaker card using some DSP and sequins from the recent Simon Says Stamp card kit.   The DSP was just perfect for the challenge:-)

Here's my card

The frame was created from the die set.  I love the scalloped border and stitch inner.  I stamped the sentiment onto vellum and secured it under the frame.  I thought the yellow sequins would brighten the day of the recipient :-)

If you are looking for some inspiration - you have to look no further than the designs from our very talented design team.  You can check them out on our webpage

On a personal note:

I wanted to share another photo from our trip.... I captured this shot of the pheasant at a Tudor Castle we visited.  More about the castle later this week - but isn't this pheasant just so handsome?

The topiary figures were interesting, too.  A disembodied porcine topiary to be exact :-)  I thought the details around the eye and mouth were genius!

Isn't that cool?  It takes an artist to create that with a pair of shears!

I'll be back tomorrow with my Paper Players card.  In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.
