CAS with Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Hi everyone and welcome to my new followers thanks for joining me on this crafting journey. I must apologize for not being around for what seems like ages but I've been really really busy and I promise I will catch up with you all as soon as I can I have been a very bad blogger!!!  
  It's time for our weekly challenge over at  Sweet Stampin' and the theme is CAS which I found hard as I tend to want to put lots of handmade flowers and flourishes on mine as well as use up lots of pieces of left over snippets....and I'm sorry if the card looks a bit of a funny shape but I couldn't take a decent photo of it either LOL!!! I used an embossing folder that I got as a freebie in a magazine ages ago I think it's really lovely and I just added some butterflies and of course a sentiment and of course good old Tim's distress inks. So come on and join in we have a fab Sweet Stampin' goodie bag as a prize. I hope everyone is okay and for those that aren't lots and lots of extra huggles. Take care xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Beautiful Sue, I love the little sentiment and what a brilliant freebie. No need to apoligise Sue, just as long as
everyone is alright that's the main thing.

Take care of yourself.

Love this card Sue, CAS does not have to be white as you have so beautifully demonstrated. No apologies necessary, we all have "real" lives too!! xx

Hi Sue me wonderful little blogging mate.
I know how you feel about making a CAS card, as I too find I have to sit on my hands to stop me when trying to make one.
You have done such a fab job of this delightful creation.
The embossing, and the colouring is wonderful.
Beautiful butterfly too.
Never worry about visiting me and commenting, as I know life gets in the way sometimes, and I always understand.
I don't no how you manage to juggle everything, as well as walking his Lordship.
Biggest hugs from my house to yours, and a super one for my Olliebobs.
Lots of crafty love. Fairy Godmother Jenny L.

Hi Sue, so nice to hear from you. Zipped over to check out this beautiful card. I find CAS a bit hard too even though I don't usually add all the pretty flowers as you do. You did the CAS great, and I love the combination of these colors...softness and great blending on this wonderful EF. Liked the single embellie of the wonderful layered butterfly. Just right. Hope all the health issues are now all gone too. Miss seeing you more often, but then Life does get in the way. TFS & Hugs
