My attempt at a CAS card.... please don't laugh! ;)

Coffee of the day - Caramel Pecan

Hello! I would be remiss if I didn't stop and thank every one of you who left the most heart warming, touching comments for me yesterday. Thank you so very much! :) I honestly had no idea that so many of you would take time from your busy days to leave such kind and touching comments for me. I can't tell you how many times I was brought to tears by the things you said. There are by far sooooooooooo many more kind people than the other in our crafty community. and I don't think of those DT people as unkind, just not understanding of how someone on the other end might be feeling....

So on to happier things like cards and crafting! :)


Today brings a new showcase over at Milk Coffee. We are featuring the cute, but shy CoCo. It is quite appropriate that I was given CoCo with her bird to create with. There also happens to be a BUNCH of fun challenges going on over at The Outlawz right now to celebrate the 2000 members. So I put on my brave girl boots (how I love that saying!!!) and tried to make a CAS card..... yep, it's not really a CAS card, but for me, it REALLY is! ;)

Can you believe this card has NO patterned paper on it anywhere? how weird is that for me? the embossing is a pretty SU! folder, twine is from My Mind's Eye, the flowers are real, dried ones that just seemed the perfect way to finish the card.

Again, thank you to all of you for being so good to me! :) back with more tomorrow!
love to you! Jennifer

I think it's awesome!! I've always admired your fabulous coloring and the soft subtle colors you create with. You do magic with your pencils! Also, like you I find creating cards in the CAS style to be a challenge, but I also LOVE the look and I'm trying more and more to learn how to create more in this style! Plus, I LOVE trying new things and LOVE the look of CAS cards.

I also happen to be a huge fan of The Outlawz group and have been there since Colleen opened it. I was so lucky to go to the retreat down in Baltimore in May and had such a great weekend, meeting the girls and many of the crafters I've only otherwise known online. They are a wonderful group and I love being part of it!!

So happy to see you playing in the challenges! Way to GO!!

Hugs,
Lis

This is a lovely card Jennifer, so soft and pretty.
I just read your post from yesterday and it brought tears to my eyes. I think sometimes people do not think about the effect they have on others, and it is so easy to do things on line that you would never do face to face. I'm sure the people concerned would not shut a door or lock you out of a room, but online it is easy and they do not see the consequences of their actions. All I would say is, it's their loss, your cards are lovely and I hope you will share them with us for a long time to come.
Many thanks for joining us at Whoopsi Daisy this week.

Sylvia said...

Lovely job, Jennifer, I especially like that doily you placed your sweet image on, one of my favorite embossing folders as well. Thanks for joining us for the Papercraft Star Anniversary challenge week, I hope to see you there for my challenge "cool drinks". Just throw some ice in that coffee! Have a good evening and hang in there!

Such a pretty card. I love turquoise and pink!

Vee Cassidy said...

I cannot imagine why anyone would laugh at such a lovely card. I love your summery colours and the central image is beautifully done. That die is one of my favourite spellbinders too. thank you for joining us at LEJ Designs this week good luck in the challenge. Vee xx

Kim said...

So very cute!!! Glad you could join us at Whoopsi Daisy this week.

Vee Cassidy said...

Hello, Jennifer I am coming back to add a word without my DT hat on! I just wanted to say how rotten it is of those people to do that to you in that way. I relate to many of the things you said about your health but with different health issues. it is hard to stay positive sometimes but these people will never really know what humanity is. Take care, Vee xx

Shirley said...

Beautifully done!Thank you for joining us at Fab'n'Funky this week!

Pam said...

Love the card!! Hope you are having a great day. :)

Renee said...

This is so cute Jen...it is pretty CAS for you...I have trouble with NOT doing CAS. When I try to add STUFF to my cards to gussy them up they just look yucky! Oh well, thank goodness we are all different!
Hugs,
Renee

Stephanie said...

Jennifer, I think you did a great job on your CAS card. I had to laugh when you said, "Can you believe there is no patterned paper on this card?" That's me, to a Tee!!! Thanks so much for playing along in the Outlawz 2000 member challenge!
