CAS card - Monday 22nd September 2014

Morning Friends!

I think I misled some of you yesterday! We are on holiday from work, but we're not 'away'...we're just doing 'day things', like walks at the arboretum, Highgrove gardens again, Bath..places we enjoy and then come home in the evening to check all is progressing well with the we haven't gone off and left them to it!

From yesterday's post, which was a true labour love, to a CAS card I  made for my friend's daughters birthday recently...

This is simply a kraft card, layered with white card and decorated with bunting and buttons and a stamped sentiment!

I've also been promising some garden photos I took recently...the rose is my pride and joy, a Gertrude Jeykell, the perfume is amazing!

 Our grape vine had produced so much fruit again this year, I have some more photos by am still to upload them.
 We had lots of gorgeous sunflowers, this is about the last one standing!

Have a good day all and thanks for dropping by!

Love and Hugs
Carole X

  10. Hi Carole, I am still not straight in the craft room but have been enjoying your blog and the 'new' things you have been posting. I love Autumn and you seem to be seamlessly drifting into it! Hope all is well, thanks for your inspiration! Xx

  11. Hi Carole, this is a great idea for a CAS card and I may have to pinch the idea Lol!
    At least you are keeping out of the way during the day, it's easy to hang around when actually there is nothing you can do and probably just get in the way but I understand that you may need to be around in case there are any decisions to be made. So enjoy your days out and I hope everything goes well with the kitchen, Angela x

  12. Hi Carole I love your card and your photographs. Yes I thought you were away. I am glad you are enjoying your days out. Hugs Jackie
