CAS (ish) again with Pan Pastels

Today is going to be a 100 times better than yesterday ... I can feel it. The sun is shining and I have a day of "making" ahead of and if I have planned my day correctly, in between "drying and colouring times", I will sneak in a bit of housework. Now that does make the thought of domestic boreness so much more appealing.

We are still all "Clean and Simple (CAS)" over at Pan Pastel Challenges and I have, again, used my Premium Craft Brands Postcards stamp set. Although my card does not look like a true CAS card, trust me, it is (ish).

I created the background by lots of over stamping (using Perfect Medium) and over colouring using my metallic pan pastels. For added highlights, I used Maimeri white acrylic paint.

The sentiment is from K and Co and I discovered an envelope full to the brim of vellum quotes and I am kicking myself that in a previous "tidy away" session, I have completely forgotten about them. There are so many to choose from with a great selection of wonderful quotes and sayings.

Isn't that sentiment so "spot on" and one I think I need to remember more often.

Right gotta dash as my day is planned and all my crafty bits are waiting for me on my table .... I can hear them calling to me ....
