Since all the local cats seem to be using my back garden as the venue for their nightly raves at the moment, I'm feeling a tad sleep-deprived. I had some cheer-up therapy though in the form of this week's CASology cue word - Yellow - and some new stash YAY! Come and have a look:
It's impossible to feel tired and low when working with bright yellow - especially when you get to use this fabulous new gingham washi tape! I laid strips of it onto a piece of card stock and cut out a frame using two of my Ovals framelits. I also cut an oval aperture into a panel of Daffodil Delight card stock and mounted the frame on top.
The wonderful, bold sentiment is from a new set called Happy Day (which will be available in to order in just 11 days time!) It was stamped directly onto the card base using a stamp-a-majig to make sure it was centred properly. The card was finished with a flower from Secret Garden centred with one of the retiring designer buttons and some delicious new Crushed Curry bakers twine.
Here's what you'll need to make this card

My youngest son has begun to organise his social life but seems to keep forgetting that communication is key! Having had several upsets on the matter, he has resolved to improve. Yesterday, at dinner, he announced that he'd been invited to a friend's birthday party. "That's great!" I said. "When is it?" He looked up from his plate. "Oh I don't know yet," he said. "I just thought I'd give you a pre-warning!" Hmm, not entirely the most useful information then. And what IS a pre-warning? A warning about a warning?! Don't worry though, I will find out when the party is... about five minutes before my son is due there!
Have a great weekend and I'll see you very soon,
