Hanging In There

Morning all, just popping in quickly to share one of those cards with you that started out of nothing and ended up as one I don't want to part with now!

You probably won't be shocked to see that this is another of my CAS cards.  Do I see these as the lazy option?  No!  I spend more time on these than on most other cards!  And why would I want to hide the image behind lots of distractions?  Nah, clean and simple is what you get here, lol!


I've used Wee Stamps "Fluffy Hanging In There" - I used the rubber version but can't find
it in my fave stores any more.  You can still get the digital version from Wee Stamps.
Painted in Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Tea Dye, Brushed Corduroy, Antique Linen, Tattered Rose, Spun Sugar
Gathered Twigs, Walnut Stain, Old Paper, Iced Spruce
Festive Berries, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Peeled Paint
Sentiment is from an unlabelled clear set stamped in Potters Clay Memento Ink
Matted on a layer of Papermania from a discontinued Capsule Collection


Hugs, Squirrel xx

Oh my, this is absolutely gorgeous and hilarious. I just LOVE that image. Your coloring is fantastic, as usual. I have never see this image and I'd love to have it. Thanks for the info.

I never see CAS cards as the easier option, they do take a lot more thought to get them balanced just right. This is just as delightful as all of your CAS cards :o)

Just popped over from Sylvia Zet's showcase . . . and you so deserve to be honoured! I especially love the CAS style of this card! Sylvia's images are fabulous and while I love the work she showcases, it's not my style! Your work truly shows your talent and the beauty of the image!! I'm now following you by email (crystalangel) and look forward to coming back for a visit! Kudos to you for being showcased!
