A Little Mid Week CAS


Since Chrissie and Mandi started Less is More a few years back there has been a a great many new challenges with a similar focus on the CAS style.   Despite my struggle with the style I persist in trying basically it is very easy but making the style distinctive and interesting is rather more challenging.

This card is a response to Less is More, use more than one stamp.   The delightful little cat and probably my oldest polymer stamp set for the paw prints.

AAA Cards one of the newest CAS challenges and one we follow over at Challenges for days.   AAA have a picture inspiration asking people to use the elements seen in the picture.  A Cat, check; there is a ball of wool or something of that nature, check; and a book I've used part of a page torn from a paper crafting magazine.    Both the knitting thread and the paper have been treated much as they might be by the cat. Trust me I am well versed in how a cat will treat these other two elements.

OK time for work, it is my turn to update the CFD list this evening.

  11. Hi Zoe, LOVE that happy and satisfied kitty smile after destroying the string! I hoped folks would enjoy "playing" with a cat theme. You've hit all 3 aspects of the challenge beautifully well. And I can't thank you enough for including some info about AAA Cards in this post! Cheers, Sweetie x

  12. I do like to think that we were somewhat of trailblazers for the CAS genre Zoe... we seem to have seen quite a few converts on the process!
    This looks great fun!
    Thanks so much
