Paula’s Blog Hop!

This is a special post, or should I say for a special person. The lovely (nearly typed right honourable.. but I guess she’s that too!) Paula Whittaker. She has been in the Docrafts Creativity Club Design Team for the past 6 months with me (plus other lovelies) and has decided to move on.

Goodbyes are always a little sad and we will miss her and her beautiful clean and artsy style. She’s a CAS girl like me, but a more artistic one & her blog ‘Just For One Day’ is well worth visiting. I’m not so sad, as I’ll not stop chatting to her about important topics like.. well, that would be telling!

Some of the other gals in the team are giving her a crafty send off & that’s why it’s a blog hop. You hopefully turned up from lovely Michelle’s blog here and next on your mini tour is Heather . I can’t wait to see what lovely inspiration they’ve got waiting.

My card is using all Docrafts supplies (of course!) and is designed to reflect a little of Paula. Some white space, a more arty stamp and a dash of colour! It was super quick to create thanks to the Artiste markers & Madame Payraud stickers! Oh, and don’t think I’m making any political statements with my colouring. I wasn’t being very careful with the colour- I’m not saying a particular country belongs with another..I don’t know my Geography well enough to do that!!).

If you get lost, just start at Nikki’s blog here, & keep following the links!

I know the photo is staged a little differently- that’s because, try as I might, the card simply would not photograph straight. I have no idea what was up with it. I tried all the usual fixes but it was destined to lay down- which is really perhaps should be my destiny too (ha ha!).

A bit of laying down would be very welcome. Half term has definitely put grey in my hair, calories on my hips and substantial miles on my car.

I’m working in Mostyn Abakhan on Saturday so do wave at me if you’re passing- or better still, bring me a nice cup of Earl Grey! Before I go, can I take the opportunity to thank all of you that have emailed, messaged & texted your support with the whole Gallery Idol thing. I’m not expecting to get any further, but I have been overwhelmed by the girls (& occasional bloke) who’ve been so supportive. This crafting community rocks!

See you later, when I ‘ve posted a load of projects off. They’ll be naming a booth after me at the Post Office soon!

    Great CAS card – I’ve had that stamp for months and never inked it, you’ve really inspired me to dig it out and use it now.

    Gee whizz – you have me blushing here but thank you for your lovely words (the fiver is in the post!) xx

    I just can’t do CAS! For a ‘simple’ style it’s really hard to reproduce!! Gorgeous card Keren (as if it would be anything else!) and I used to love this stamp (must find again). And Paula won’t shake us off that easily!! Heather x

    Brilliant card Keren. I don’t think I’ve ever managed a CAS card. I’ve tried but I just can’t seem to get the ‘white’ space right!
