Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday. I hope you are all keeping safe and well! It is the fabulous Sue's turn to host our Addicted to CAS challenge this week and this is her code word: Texture has so many interpretations! For this card, I decided to go with layers. I stamped the script layer and then the Eiffel tower and then added the woman and then the polka dot dress.. I think all of these layers = texture :-) Here's my ard: For me.. there is something about a stylish woman and the Eiffel Tower. Not that women can't be stylish... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous Joanne's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and it's theme week: Normally for this sort of theme, I would have my stamps and pencils out and spend ages coloring. However, I decided to do something very quick and simple. Something that would highlight some of the gorgeous DSP from SU. I paired a piece of Best Dressed DSP with a die from the Detailed Bands set. Easy peasy card. Here's my Best Dressed card :-) Isn't that paper so pretty? I don't have the Dressed to Impress stamp set that... Read more →
