Simple Squares

Hello All. I hope your friday is going well and you are looking forward to the weekend.

I`ve been playing this afternoon. I`m getting into this CAS lark now I think. I`ve always envied other people being able to make these sort of cards when mine just look naked or unfinished. So I`ve been blog hopping and looking at other peoples styles. One particular blog I love is LateBlossom`s Simplicity 
Now that girl really can do CAS. I`ve also been reading her advice on taking photos matching the colour on the card with the background. I`ve CASED one of her cards to practice with and this is the result.

I`m fairly pleased with it although looking back at it I think I`ve used too deep foam pads.
Obviously a really simple card to make. I punched 3 squares from the Papermania  Capsule Collection Blueberry Pie. Then stamped my sentiment ,from Flourishes Tag Lines in Memento Bahama Blue.

Just a little piccy now of the monster that was waiting for me on my work desk.
Have you seen the size of that thing. It was just sitting there washing his legs cheeky monkey. Now I`m not usually prone to violence of any sort  but that punch came in very handy. LOL.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx


  1. Lovely card Lynne and the blue background on the photo really makes a difference - who'd have thunk it?? Will try that trick myself next time. I'd have punched the "visitor" too....

  2. Eugh . . . hope you washed the punch off afterwards!

    Love the card and I see what you mean about the background . . . hafta take a look at the Simplicity blog now!!!!

    Hugs, Sandra

  3. Oooh Lynne what a fab card, I love it. I tend to use matching backing card for my photo's too, really sets them off nicely I think.Oh my not a very nice beasty is it!! I think I have seen that blog too, we must be stalking the same blogs I think lol :O) Viv xx

  4. Ooh what a lovely calm card! It looks great against the blue background. I suppose that creature is the pay-off for the warmer weather!

    Now I'm curious - is the card on your desk for FTL 134 by any chance?

  5. Wow Lynne, this card is beautiful, your photo tip is great, I will check out the site, thanks.
