CASology Guest Designer!

I'm so excited today, because I'm a guest designer at one of my favourite challenge blogs, CASology! Thanks so much to Melissa for inviting me!  Their codeword this week is "BASKET".  Here's my take:

Yes, that basket is hand-woven - from strips of kraft cardstock that I sponged with some Distress Ink.  I die cut it out using a circle die, then cut the top edge off.  I added some twine that I plaited to make it into a hanging basket, so that I could add these gorgeous fuchsias from Clearly Besotted, which I fussy cut.  A sentiment from Hero Arts and I was done! 

Now this card doesn't fit the "easily reproducable" category of CAS, but it has only one focal image, and lots of white space, so I think it still qualifies as CAS (for the clean design, if not for the time taken to create it!)
 Make sure you drop in to CASology to see the amazing creations from the design team, and to link up your own creation - I'm looking forward to seeing what you make!

  3. Michelle, I love that hand-woven hanging basket! I usually have a hanging plant like this on my front porch every summer...this card is giving me hope that someday I will actually see flowers again (and not snow and sleet and rain!)! So great to have you as Guest Designer this week at CASology!
