CAS Birds

Hello dear friends.  I know I am quite a stranger lately but there is so much going on.  I was also asked if I would make some simple cards to sell on the Women's Institute stall at the village show next week.  It was the last thing I needed but I didn't feel I could say no. I made a dozen cards and a dozen little shopping note pads.  Our president was delighted so it was all worth it.  However, in my rush to get them done and off to her  I forgot to take pictures!  Typical!  These are two that I did initially and I did remember to photograph them.

My Cards

These are A6 size cards.  The grey card and the green card which I used for matting and layering and to die cut the birds were pieces from my bit box. The white card is some linen card which again was from my box.   I made the green one first and stamped the sentiment, which is from Kaiser Craft Friendship Sentiments, but unfortunately it wasn't really successful because of the textured card stock.   For the grey one I decided to computer generate the image instead.   The Birds On A Wire are from Spellbinders.  The pearls and gems were from my stash.  Very simple cards but quite effective.

Well that's all from me.  Hope this finds you all well.  I have tried to pop into some blogs when I have had time but Blogger has been playing up I think and sometimes my comments disappear!  It can be such a pain at times.

Take care.


  1. You made really nice CAS cards. The sentiments just say everything....
    It's so good, you made lots of cards for the stall and I can imagine the president was very pleased!
    Have a nice day!
