CAS or Fussy at AYLI

 Hello everyone. How are you all doing? The weather has picked up a little bit here in the UK and that has certainly put a spring in my step!! Covid vaccination clinics are drawing to an end as we are doing the first Pfizer for 18-30 year olds this coming Saturday and have only two more second jab clinics to go. It has been hard work but equally wonderful to be involved in such an important event.

Another important event is the new challenge at As You Like It Challenge where it's 

CAS or Fussy

I am one of those people that doesn't really fall into either category as I love patterned papers far too much to favour CAS but like to keep my cards flat for posting so don't tend to add too many embellishments. For the purpose of this challenge I am a "little bit fussy" which suits the recipient of this card. It is for a work colleague, Eve, who absolutely LOVES pink and is incredibly girly.

I have been trying to use less cute stamps and bought this gem a while back. With pink in mind I found a Craftwork Cards Julie Loves pad and made a dutch fold card base. It doesn't quite sit on the supporting flaps but that can be our secret!!

She was coloured with Spectrum Noir markers for a change

and  used my trusty Mama Elephant tag and stamp set for the sentiment.

Just a simple seam binding bow and pearly flower ooh and a touch of stardust glitter too.

See you soon  xx

A super card Sarah, a great image and lovely papers.
Everyone involved in the vaccination clinics has done a wonderful job and I for one am very grateful to you all, it was such a relief to get my second jab.

I'm glad you are getting to enjoy some of the sunshine. Thank you for all the work you and your colleagues are doing to make us all safe.

I love this, Sarah. Borrowing a line from The 3 Bears, it's "just right", not too fussy and not too simple. I've been volunteering at one of our immunization clinics. It has been a real pleasure to do something so valuable with my time.

Your well ahead on jabs there.

Hi Sarah

What a fabulous fun card!

Love your card fold and beautiful papers. Both are just perfect for that lovely image. You have coloured it beautifully.

It must be tiring but satisfying to be involved with the COVID vaccinations. Well done on having lots of stamina! I am sure the sunshine will help and will lift everyone's spirits.

Hope you are well.

Love Jules xx
