This one's for you Darnell

Today is the Anniversary of our friend Darnell and Mr K at http://www.djkardkreations.com/

Darnell is an outgoing, friendly, caring lady whose blog is filled humour, funny words, gorgeous blooms, great organizational ideas, the twinks, the scrapping playhouse, and much, much, more.
Her cards have a definite style as Darnell loves (and makes) beautiful CAS cards. Cards that are a lot harder to make than they first appear. How do I know this...well, I learned the hard way!
I have a new respect for CAS cards...here is my feeble attempt...I might get disqualified though! Good thing it is not a challenge...teehee

Happy Anniversary  Darnell. I hope your day is filled with love and laughter!

Beautiful CAS card scrappymo! I'm with you they are so difficult to get right, the temptation to keep adding things is very difficult to resist! xx

Irene said...

Don't think you're gonna get disqualified on the CAS. This is so pretty. The colors are so bold, and I love the embossed background with the scallop border trim. Most charming,great color choices. TFS.

Thank you so much, Maureen, for your sweet words and this special post dedicated to me and our anniversary! My day has indeed been FILLED with love and laughter!!

You've done a terrific job with your CAS card! I love love love turquoise and black and white, especially the sparkly mat paper. Your little patterned butterfly with fancy feelers is just adorable!

I've made a special Pinterest board just for keeping all of our special surprising and amazing anni cards.

Beautiful card. I love the color combo.

Hi ya, wow seems like ages since I visited your blog last! Don't why you are not coming up on my reader, but you're not and I forgot to come say Hi!

Still I'm here now and have been wandering back over the posts I've missed and admiring your card in this post. I quite agree that CaS is a great style but a hard one to achieve - though I think you've done a perfect card here! Great colours and the embossing gives it a lovely finishing touch.

Hope you, and yours, are well.

Thats a really beutiful CAS card. Nearly finished my mammoth sort/tidy up. Just left with a pile of don't know what to do withs but don't want to throw aways which don't relate to anything else. Spose I could just label up a box The Odds and Ends of Life!!!! Hugs Mrs A.
p.s. thanks for your tip of doing a box and a drawer at a time. Worked a treat for me.
