Quickie!


Morning Peeps!

This is a little card I quickly made the other night after realising I needed a birthday card, ready to go in the post, the next morning. AKA excuse to get in the Bat Cave (thanks Jane for your enlightening descriptive).

As I've been frantically Funky for most of the week, I had this rather scrummy gingham paper from the Craft The year Away CD lying on my desk and this little number came together quite easily. I normally struggle with Clean and Simple. They look lovely, but it doesn't come naturally and I can spend longer trying to make the idea work than on a 'normal' card!

Anyway, have I mentioned I'm going away next week and haven't organised anything yet? Well, I've made a start on some scheduled posts... I have priorities you know! ;)

Don't forget there's a new challenge, with new prizes over at Sweet Stampin this morning!

Such a fabulous flower! Love how it turned out! The "bat cave" sound so mysterious - love it! :) Hope you enjoy your holiday - don't forget your knickers girl! Well, I suppose if you do, it would be a great excuse to buy new - providing there will be good shopping in the vicinity!

I love this Faye! Love the gingham and the embossing. The flower and twine is perfect! I love CAS too, but struggle with actually making one.

Delphine said...

What a fabulous card, Faye! I absolutely love the layout and the flower is awesome! And I do agree, CAS is not that easy, you sometimes need a lot of thinking before doing something you are satisfied with... and I often struggle with my "simple" cards:-)! I hope you have had a lovely day, sending you BIG hugs Delphine xxx

Hiya Faye,

Love the simplicity of your card and a gorgeous colour scheme too! The button and string are gorgeous :o)

My 'bat cave' is also in dire need of re-organising, I sooooooooo feel your pain!! But it's much more fun to get in it and create isn't it!! ;o)

Hugs,
Cazza

Hi Fluffie, this is a FABULOUS clean and simple card! I would never have thought of it. Know what you mean though, that these can take longer than a normal card. LOL! Lucky you, with a lovely sunny holiday to look forward to. Hope you're going somewhere nice! keeleyxx

Lisa said...

Abi said...

Love it, the embossing is so delicate & lovely.

It appears that no one person is credited with writing the first dictionary, see I told you every time I search for answers it just throws up more Q's. Although I am learning things in the process!

Wishcraft said...

Fabulously gorgeous card Faye, I love it! Great flower :o) For me, simple cards take AGES to think about, but they're quicker to put together... so I should really make lots all in one go but I rarely do! Lisa x

PS. Thanks for your comment hun, I'm not really down, just had one of those tired and unmotivated days. Thanks for thinking of me xx

Janet said...

Fab card....love the style!x

Linda said...

Great card, but I agree CAS isn't always as easy as it sounds.

Mrs A. said...
