A Penny For You Thoughts!

Morning blogging buddies.


This one's quite a diversion from my usual style, if you remember I made a C A S style card for my Niece a few weeks ago and I quite liked doing it, so I'm here with another attempt.

I don't know if I'm fully in the swing of this style yet, (very tempted to add more bits and bob's, doh!) but I guess I'll get more of a feel for it as I go on.

I'm not making my own envelopes for these either, I'm just using an 'ordinary' envelope and adding something from the design to the front.

I'll still be using pre-coloured images so don't hold your breath waiting for any hand coloured ones will you, it's not 'gonna happen!

So here we go with the first one, I'll be sneaking one or two, in between my usual style of card, certainly can't give up on those.

So what do you think, do I pass the test for C A S style?

Excuse picture quality, it's so dull here today, I don't think I'd get the right light even if I stood on my head whilst swinging from a chandelier, so frustrating!!!

Love this one Jacee! You just took me back through time to when I was a kid playing with my little pup out in the back yard! What a wonderful memory and a fabulous card! hugs :)

Rainey's Craft Room said...

You have most certainly cracked the CAS style Jacee, this is perfect. Love the image, it looks great printed on to linen cardstock and the bow just finishes it off beautifully. Like you I want to keep adding stuff and fill the bare spaces hence why I don't 'do' CAS much.

A fabulous CAS card! You definitely look like you've got the hang of them to me. The photos look great although it would be hilarious to see you hanging upside down from the chandelier trying to take a photo. The card, inside and envelope look brilliant so you can keep your feet on the ground, for now, lol. Debra x

Oh! Jacee, this is so VERY beautiful.
Love the bow and the red card and the sentiment is perfect.

(I wouldn't be able to tell the difference of the pre-coloured to your own colouring.)

KT Fit Kitty said...

Wonderful job on the CAS card! I enjoy CAS cards too - well I love both styles really, CAS and embellished. You find the most awesome pre-coloured images - I would have sworn you coloured this yourself! Well done!

Anne Temple said...

Your card is gorgeous and you used my favorite color for highlights (red) :-). Love that linen paper you printed the image on too - very elegant looking. Thanks so much for visiting my blog and becoming a follower. You'll see that I'm your 200th follower :-). I look forward to seeing lots more of your creations.

It's absolutely adorable!
I know what you mean about CAS style I struggle with those too. I'm so used to adding lots of layers. But I'm slowly giving it a try myself. I had all the postage to use have to put on ALL those layers...LOL.
Hope you have a great weekend!
