Wild Thing

Good morning all here we are mid week!  Well I managed to get two cards done yesterday and I am hoping I can do the same today to try and catch up on them all.  This afternoon my DH is going to an Art Demonstration that is being held by one of the local villages.  He will set up his easel outside and start his art work and I think people can come round and watch.  I have told him I will come and see how he is getting on - nothing to do with the fact that the local craft shop is there lol!!

Today's card is a CAS one that I did so that I could enter the challenge at Basic Grey which is CAS.


The image is Jesalyn from Lala Crafts and I have coloured her with my Copics.  I have used Basic Grey Papers from the Little Black Dress Collection which I love!  I have made the banner from the same paper using my Memory Box Die.  I have cut and matted the paper out with Spellbinders.  The image is computer generated. Very simple card but I guess that is the idea of CAS!!  I would like to enter the following challenges:

Basic Grey Challenges - Clean and Simple
Robyn's Fetish - Anything Goes
The Hybrid Chick - Clean and Simple
Crafts and Me - Anything Goes
Divas by Design - To Die For
The Sisterhood of Crafters - Going in Circles (use 2 circles - mine are on top of each other)



When I was making this card I thought of one of my favourite songs from back in the sixties - "Wild Thing" by the Troggs. I don't know if any of you are old enough to remember it but I used to love it!

 Well that's it from me for today.  A big welcome to my newest follower Mary!  Thanks for looking and I will be back tomorrow - take care xx
