Gingersnaps - case a cas


Gingersnap Creations is one of those blogs that I've not joined in on before. Last Wednesday they set something called once in a blue moon inviting you to look at some fabulous Clean & Simple examples made by Ali Manning Ali has done some stunning work in a minimal style. This card was inspired by CAS cards with patterned paper

However rather than use paper I have used 2 stamped images and some versamark on card. The stamps are made to order by Tanda Stamps This will be the Birthday card for a non crafting friend who lives in the US. When she came here on a visit we went to Stonehenge which captivated her. In the gift shop there were various post cards for sale including one taken at night with comet Hale-Bopp in the sky. Hale-Bopp only visits once ever 4 thousand years, on its previous visit the henge was either not yet built or newly built. Add to that relativity and the imagination just runs away, well mine does.

Not the best card in the world and I'll probably do another on the same theme but this one is loaded in ways the next will not be.

Back to work tomorrow hope the roads have cleared for you. Stay warm stay safe & have fun.
