Keeping it CAS with the Crafty Catz

yes, you read it right, the

I'm thrilled to be Guest Designer for April with the Crafty Catz.

This week the team has shared projects to inspire you to get creative for

sponsored by


Today I have used the pretty Daisy Window digital stamp by A Day For Daisies, the generous challenge sponsor this week, to create some CAS cards.

I decided to make my image panels to fit on 5" x 7" card bases, so I sized the image on my Silhouette Cameo design mat, added a Get Well Soon sentiment, printed on A5 X-press It blending card, heat set then coloured with Copic markers.  Each card is coloured differently.  I trimmed the image panels and adhered to the card bases so that they all had a slightly different black border visible.

NOW it's YOUR turn!

I hope that I have inspired you to get creative
and look forward to seeing your projects fill the gallery for
