ATCAS#83 and HLS March CAS challenge

Hi everyone!!!!

I made two cards earlier this week and it's almost cut off time for the first challenge I want to link to, which is Addicted to CAS where the code word is 'Gift'.

This is the card I have made:

The stamp is part of a set that I got as a free gift with a magazine very long ago!!!!
Coloured the image with GraphIt pens.
Added a small strip of dry wall tape and black twine on the side.

I've made a second card to link at the Happy Little Stampers CAS challenge for March.

My card:

Leaves stamp from PTI.  Daisy stamp from Verve.
Notepad edge (above the sentiment) from MFT.
Afrikaans sentiment saying: 'Congratulations'.

I'll call this a day now and be off to bed!!!!!

Thanks for popping in!!!

Two phenomenal cards--one adorable and one so elegant. Guess you know which is which. Love the pup, especially as I am watching my dog sleep right next to my paper files.

Wat een mooie kaartjes weer, de eerste is zo cute met dat kleine diertje in dat doosje. Je tweede vind ik prachtig door de achtergrond die je hebt gemaakt in het midden. Heel mooi en supermooie kleuren! Lieve groetjes, Erna

First off, I adore your little puppy in his gift box, and the MofP panel is too gorgeous, Petra! Two more things to tell you ... I've found my drywall tape, and the priest at my cousins funeral had a fabulous accent - born in Zimbabwe!!! - one I will forever keep in my head when reading your darling comments!! xx
