Difficult and CAS

Hello Everyone,

I didn't expect to be back so soon...well not soon really, it's been all day for me, but I'm here....and with a card....and she was a hard one in a way...I ran out of white card...can you believe it...my store doesn't have any in stock, and not likely to before Christmas...awesome...had to find something else and my choice was...manilla folders...$2 for 10....but try colouring with pencils on it....aarrrggghhh..
I struggled along... it was for a challenge at TEDDY BO  and the theme...CAS.
This is fairly CAS...not much going on at all...but I quite like it...although very hard to blend pencils on this stuff as it is not kraft card.



Yep....thats CAS



Side view....

Coloured with pencils and glitter for ice...lol..what more can I say...the sentiment is from Inspired stamps....

Not like me, not to prattle on for awhile...but nothing left to say..I'd like to thank my Mother and Father, and all my supporters...oh! ...sorry...wrong speach....

Well, The Far Pavillions is about to start, so will curl up with my dog...if he cares to move over a bit, and watch the telly....4 day weekend...whoohoo.......

Luv CHRISSYxx

Whisper said...

I'm loving it, and to be honest i prefer it done on the manilla, as it tones so well with the colours of the image, hope white card arrives soon, Luv Sam x
