Hobbycutz Challenge 44. . . . . . . . . CAS

Good morning everyone and a very Happy Easter to you all. Hope your faces aren't all smeared with chocolate from your eggs just yet; let's get brekky out the way first eh lol! Time to enjoy whatever you may have given up for Lent. This year, I gave up housework hahaha!!!
Mr Duck has been given his eggs inspite of his faux pas with the names the other day. . . . . . . more on that later.
Its been a busy week at work but my, the weather has been lovely. Heating has stayed off for a few weeks now so hopefully we're moving towards some real warmth.

Now today's card is for the latest Hobbycutz Challenge which is Clean and Simple.
I love really well done CAS cards as I can't help adding all the whistles and bells to my usual cards. I hope that I have achieved a sense of CAS with this one.

The base card is A5 white card topped with a layer of purple PMD card, I then took a slightly smaller layer of white card and cut an aperture using an SB Scalloped Oval big enough to accommodate my beautiful Hobbycutz butterfly. I kept the actual die cut to use momentarily. 
I then cut a smaller scalloped oval out of a piece of purple card and stuck the aperture piece to the back of the white aperture to give a bit of depth. 
For the stamping, I used another new set of Card-io stamps with roses. I kinda went with a waft across the page design again. I stamped the white scalloped piece from earlier trying to match the rest of the pattern.
The sentiment is an Aly's Inky Fingers stamp, stamped in purple ink and clear heat embossed.
I foam padded this top layer to the base and then popped the glued stamped scallop piece through the aperture. I covered the Hobbycutz butterfly in purple ink and clear heat embossed and then glued it in the aperture.

Hope you like it. CAS is not my forte but then again, what is hahaha!
Please pop along here and see what my fellow teamies have come up with and why not have a bash at entering the challenge.

Now to my blogaversary draw, take two! My glamorous assistant has dipped his beak into the re-filled bowl and has pulled (steady!) drum roll. . . . . . . . . another drum roll. . . . . . . . . . .
WENDY !!!!!!! Thanks chuck for your lovely comments and support.

Congratulations Wendy and commiserations to everyone else. . . . . .blame Mr D for the picking. For my 100th post , I did forget to photograph the pressies I sent to Christine. I will post a picture of what will be winging its way to Wendy on my next post as I forgot to photograph them yesterday, doh! Will drop you an email today Wendy about the postage details.
Well, that's me done for today. Will be trying to avoid the news so I don't see the Chinese GP results before the highlights programme, so an excellent excuse to watch the wonderful Sue Wilson.
I will actually be back again tomorrow with my House of Cards DT card. . . . . Gosh John, I don't know how you manage to post everyday so kudos to you matey.

Enjoy your eggs and whatever you're up to. 
Hasta manana.

  1. Happy Easter to both of you
    A brilliant card I like the wave across the card, very effective, love it all.
    Looking forward to seeing Lee's Easter Egg ......... remember to photograph if before he eats it!!!
    We had an Easter Egg Hunt in the garden yesterday, only found "one" and it was tiny. Might have a wee look later, they might have missed some.
    I passed on an Easter Egg in favour of a Sue Wilson Die. Hopefully not put on weight on with that.......!!!
    Have a great day
