If Friends Were Flowers I'd Pick You...

Early hours here folks.... soft music playing....the house is so so peacful, I think this is why I colour in best lol no distractions :)
Just sharing another CAS card I have just finished. The light is not its best...I do need to invest in a light box or something for taking better photo's.. but these will have to do for now
Another Saturated Canary image this evening, I thought this lovely image was so pretty and perfect for this sentiment which I have used previously on floral cards.


 Sweet and simple, ....I think....I have found my new favourite card style....for now lol. When I first saw CAS cards ...I thought mmmm ok, but not for me, I like to add lots on with lots of glitters and ribbons etc....and then I made one, using a beautiful image and beautiful sentiment and I TOTALLY changed my mind! I think for me it just depends on the image/ sentiment you are using. So for the first few CAS cards I've tried I have chosen thoughtful sentiments and images that I LOVE that to me just dont need anything more adding to them...well... thats just my look at things ;)
I am as always extremely grateful for anyone who takes the time to stop by and take a peek at my cards, and would love for you to leave a comment ..
happy crafting!

  1. Beautiful Nicole. I am like you, I love to add glitter and other little extras - but often find that less is more. I have gotten into sharp, clean cards. My New Year's resolution is to perfect my colouring - the effects you can get with a little bit of clever shading are just so awesome. Anyway, I love your Saturated Canary image!!

  2. A great card, your colouring is fabulous. Love the font on the sentiment. I am the opposite I find CAS cards much easier to do than adding lots of bits and pieces
