CAS-ual Fridays Block of Colour

I`ve been MIA for a few days this week. Don`t ask me why because I haven`t a clue. My work/home routine doesn`t really change from one week to the next but some weeks I can get loads of crafting done and then another, time just disappears. Alan`s been home all week so that might have something to do with it. For some reason I just can`t get on when he`s home. Anyway I`m here now with a card to share.


This is the 3rd card I`ve tried to make for Dad for fathers Day. The other 2, I wasn`t at all happy with.
The I saw the challenge for this weeks CAS-ual Fridays is blocks of colour and this card was born.


The papers are snippets left over from a previous card and are Papermania Capsule Blueberry Pie collection. I`ve stuck them onto card to give them some rigidity and placed them with foam pads.

The sentiment is `Happy Wishes` from Layers of Colour stamped in memento Bahama Blue and embossed with clear EP.


I`m also entering this card as a last minute entry into Jules Crafty Snippet Challenge 23


Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
