Hey Everyone!
Oh my doesn't time fly! I am finally recovered from that horrible horrible bug & have spent the last few days catching up with Christmas! The BIG day will be here before I know it! 

Anyway, on to some good news! I am teaching a workshop at THE PAPERLANE on the 21st January 2012! To book your place & for more details pop on over to the blog

Below is a little peek at what we will be doing ....

The project is CAS (Clean & Simple Cards) Card set and a little box to hold them in. The workshop will cover the skills & techniques used to create CAS style cards along with a few other paper crafting techniques. This project uses some Hero Arts stamps which have so many possibilities and are super fun to use!

The Paperlane Challenge No.6

Firstly sorry I have been MIA I have been ill for the last 2 weeks with a nasty bug going around :( I am at about 75% today & found a lil bit of energy this morning to make a super quick CAS (Clean & Simple) card for this months challenge over at The Paperlane Challenge Blog.

This months challenge is again Christmas themed as the day will be here before we know it & lets just say now I am WAY behind schedule! 

Anyhow the challenge is to use unconventional colours on your card or project! 

I am a huge fan of unconventional Christmas colours :) I often throw in some aqua or lilac for a snow themed card! But, for today I used a tiny bit of aqua, hot pink & deep aqua. 

With a fuzzy head & not much mojo I needed a inspirational jumping point. Maile Bells' card HERE was the starting point I needed. I loved the LO she used & I could have done it a lot simpler than she shows as I originally planned to colour the ornament with my Copics but changed my mind & paper pieced it so I could have skipped the craft knife part!

Here is a close up of the sparkly bauble! The stamps are from Hero Arts & are Sparkle Clear Merry Christmas CL364 and Magic of Christmas CL462. I used Stardust Stickles on the bauble centre.

This is a super quick CAS card which can be easily mass produced & would look fun in an array of different conventional & unconventional colours! 

Thats all from me today, now I shall go back to resting & might even have a nap! Be sure to check out the challenge & join in on the fun :)
