CAS Watercolour July's Top Picks


We were so happy to see the large number of beautiful cards with bouquets of flowers, a true feast for the eyes.  Thank you to all who entered!

Our Top Pick for July
Anita

Anita's card has so much depth of colour, wonderful shading, a beautiful blue background wash, and great accents like the gold die cut that "ties" the bouquet together.


Congratulations, Anita!

CAS Watercolour July Reminder


Just over a week left for this challenge hosted by Susan.



We have another special birthday celebration this month.
Today is Bonnie's birthday!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BONNIE!!


The Design Team has gotten together to create special cards in
Bonnie's honour.

It was a little tricky because Bonnie can see all the cards being
added to the post ahead of it going live.
So we put in one decoy card and then the rest of the girls didn't add their cards.
Bet Bonnie was wondering why so many cards were
missing right up until the last minute. :)

We love you Bonnie!!
Hope you are having a fantastic birthday!!

    CAS Watercolour July Challenge


    Welcome to a new challenge hosted by Susan
    Check out the Top Picks from June's Something Blue challenge HERE.

    Special Event

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY DARNELL!!

    Please join us in celebrating Darnell's Birthday!!



    Message from Susan
    Hello CAS cardmakers!  Susan here, happy to host this month.  I have a garden full of flowers and love bringing bouquets in for my kitchen table, hence my choice of this month's theme.

    Please make sure that your card depicts a bouquet of flowers - a single branch or stem does not count as a bouquet, nor does a flower garden.  It can be just a bouquet or it can be in a vase.

    Participants are asked to make a CAS Watercoloured Bouquet of Flowers Birthday card in Darnell's honour.


    Please follow the challenge rules:
      • Cards only following monthly theme
      • CAS design (clean and simple) - definition on sidebar
      • Include watercolouring or watercolour look that uses water
      • Include link to challenge on your blog post
      • Enter up to three (3) times
      Thank you!!!


      One more part to this special event.
      The team has made special cards for Darnell's birthday,
      along with our Guest Designer this month, Leslie (Running with Scissors),
      and several Featured Designers (friends from the retreat).

      During our retreat, Darnell (Dolly to us) was up early one morning
      and decided she wanted some frozen blueberries.
      Somehow the bag wasn't sealed and Dolly ended up spilling almost the whole, Costco-sized bag of blueberries all over the floor.
      Bonnie snapped these pictures.

      See the swipe of blueberries in the right photo??  Dolly panicked and grabbed a large piece of card stock to "smoosh" the blueberry juice.

      Well, we kept that piece, cut it up and each of the Designers used one on their card below. :)
