I am still very much a beginner in the papercrafting world, but as I craft, my style is beginning to show. It's definitely a clean and simple (CAS) style. I love cute images paired with bright colours in a clean design. I also aspire to use more white space and let the colours and images speak for themselves :)
I love this lil monster guy from Paper Smooches and the bold sentiment from Lawn Fawn. I've also found that I love grid backgrounds :) Mini cards are the best! This one is 4 x 4 inches.
I am entering this into the CAS-ual Fridays Mini Cards CFC #20 challenge.
Thanks for visiting! :)

Amy Tangerine is my new favourite designer. I am totally in love with her inspiring collection. Her designs and colours are so funky, fresh and adorable. I made this card using: 'Hanging Out', 'Woodness Gracious' papers and the gorgeous 'hello friend' dimensional sticker!
The two little ghosts are from Lawn Fawn's 'Happy Haunting'. They're so cute and look friendly, I thought they'd be a perfect match to the sentiment! :)
Hope you're having a wonderful weekend. Spring is upon us so I'm going to do some clothes shopping today. I love Sundays, it's when my hubby looks after the kids ;)
Thanks for stopping by! :)

As much as I love papercrafting, I am a writer and writing will always come first. If I wasn't writing or struggling to do so (on many occasion when writer's block sets in) I would have a lot more time to make cards and then you'd probably see more posts ;)
Anyway, this year I am privileged to be working with some amazing writers in my novel class. This card is a bit of a tribute to one of these writers whose novel is about the sweetest boy named Jacob :)
I loved using Spellbinders dies to create the frames and also using watercolour paper. It has a nice texture and look to it. 'Jacob' was spelled out with Lawn Fawn's 'Quinn's ABCs'. So fun to paper piece those cute letters!
I'll be back with another novel tribute. Until then, I should start making some new cards as I made these 'novel' cards quite a while ago!
