Family

Hello crafty friends! I hope you are having a beautiful Tuesday. This is a scheduled post as you know I am baking away and getting my chores done. Darnell is having another NBUS challenge because she reached 600 followers and I want to join in on the challenge. Wow! I couldn't even imagine having 600 followers. I am very grateful for the followers I do have and trust me when I say I didn't even think I would get this many followers! But I do and how it makes my heart sing. I know not everyone comments and that's ok with me. Just knowing that you all are visiting me warms my heart like you wouldn't believe and then when you do leave me a comment, well I'm on cloud nine. lol There are so many talented people out there, like Darnell, that I'm not sure why ya'll are visiting little ole me! lol So anyway, enough babbling. I made my card using never been used schtuff from  my stash. Yes, I have a lot never been used schtuff. I know, I know, right?! So I am trying to use my schtuff. My card is using schtuff that are stamps and dies from My Creative Time called Family Is Everything. I love her products and order more often than I should, but I just can't help myself. This set is just amazing. I love the dies that are in Emma's own handwriting and it's all about love and family! See, you are going to love this set too and yes, the ink splatters are in this set too, lots of them. I took the "family" die and cut it 3 x's out of white card stock and then once out of a pattern paper.I glued them all together to make it look like a chipboard sentiment. Then the rest I just stamped and attached my die cut on a mat layer, popping it up on the base card. I hope you like my little CAS card! Thanks for stopping by today and visiting me again. Crafty hugs to you all-Brenda

Girl, look at you go with this CASlicious card with all that yummy white space!! You know it totally stole my heart and now I'm gonna go buy MORE flippin' NBUS for the Mountain!! I love her handwriting, but I was also sold that those artistic and perfectly placed splatters are STAMPS! Oh, yeah, I'm all over that. It's a new company to me. You need a commission on what I buy!! Thank you so much for playing in my second NBUS Challenge and for so kindly promoting it and my blog!! Hugs, Darnell

You've perfectly nailed CAS with this amazing card! It looks CAS, but I'm sure it took some time to carefully layer that die cut 4 times! It turned out fantastic, and I love love love that tiny heart dotting the "i!" Well done!!

Love this CAS style card Brenda - the die cut word and the sploges of ink - a perfectly beautiful creation. I know what you mean about our followers - am stunned that I reached 200! I don't often do candy because I don't have a lot of stash that would be suitable to pass on, most of it has been used at least once lol!
I am now salivating too after reading your cookie recipe, skipped a proper lunch as DH let me sleep in as I've been so exhausted so much recently. Apple pie is my all time favourite and I've a craving for that too - my body is starting to finally level out and get used to the meds - so am hoping to visit more often. I hope you had a lovely break huni - you and your DH earned it. Thank you for all your lovely and regular comments - it means a lot to me and I really appreciate it Karen xx

My sweet Brenda! I'm so glad that I re-checked my post, because the original disappeared (our internet has been so fidgety lately!), so I'm back, late (well, technically not late...dang computers!) to try round 2! First, we visit 'little ole' you, because you are utterly fabulous! Sweet, charming, genuine, talented, creative, passionate..and who else shares such amazing recipes!! You're a gem, a treasure, a blessing and a bright light in many of our lives - and most definitely mine! Love you? Only oodles! Your card is a splendid showcase not only of the MCT die, but especially of your commitment to YOUR family! The colours, the perfect splatters, the sentiment = one outstanding, heart-warming card! Gorgeous (as are you!!)
Hugs~c
