Blossom Loves Balloons CAS

Happy Friday everyone, I hope everyone is looking forward to their weekend.

Sadly this is my last post for Dies to Die for as I'm trying to make a bit more time for family and the things I need to do like house hunting. I'm very sad to leave the DT because I've been here for 2 years now and they have been the best ever. So a big thank you to the lovely Tracy, fabby DT leader Lou and all the wonderful girls on the team .

My last card for them is a CAS, yes, who would have thought that I'd find a little soft spot for making them. Well they are super when you're in a hurry i will say and also they are fab when you want to actually post something in an envelope. This was the card I made for my Mum's birthday, a couple of weeks back now, she'd been on  holiday and I wasn't sure she'd be at home when it was delivered, so I didn't want a parcel getting lost or her having to go and collect it, so I wanted something that would go through the letter box.

I used the adorable Blossom from the Tiny Townies collection, love this stamp. I chose bright colours cos my Mum likes cheerful things.

 I think this is about as CAS as it' possible for me to go, I had to sit down for a bit afterwards!

I raised the back layer on some foam tape added this sentiment which is sooooo my Mum if you knew her lol and finished with just few gems coloured to match with my Copics.

Sadly the whimsy sentiment stamp I used is no longer stocked, but you can find loads of fab other sentiment sets by Whimsy here.

Don't worry though, CAS has not body snatched me and my next card will be my usual more layered and embellished style, I may have to make a few of this style up though as cards to send out in a hurry!

That's all from me today, do pop by tomorrow though as I'm giving away some 'Candy' (crafty style) for Halloween :) xx
