Addicted to CAS - Codeword: Vellum

I love using vellum, so I don't know why I don't use it more often than I do!  I went for a fun look with this card for Addicted to CAS:

Happy birthday, Jackie

I usually make a birthday card with a French theme for my good friend, Jackie.  This year, I thought I'd make it not so blatantly French - so I used La-La Land's Marci wearing her beret, but decided not to have her wearing red, white and blue ;)

 Happy birthday, Jackie (for yesterday)!

Happy birthday, Cecilia!

I made this card for Cecilia of Cecilia's Cards - I didn't blog about it here on her actual birthday, because she wouldn't have got the card in the mail by then! Happy birthday, Cecilia :)
I used my brand new "Swirly" stencil from Create a Smile - have you checked out this awesome little company yet, run by my friend, Christine Drogt?  I am in love with her stencils!

I'll be submitting this card to CAS on Sunday's latest challenge, Emboss it.

Thanks for visiting ;)

Hang in there!

A colleague of mine is due to give birth quite soon (read - she's going to pop ANY MINUTE!!)  She will be taking maternity leave from the end of this week, and I was asked to make a card for everyone at work to sign to wish her well (we also had a lunch in her honour today with lots of sweet goodies to share - yum!)

I thought the sentiment in Mama Elephant's set, Up and Away, was perfect for this card. 

 This week's Retro Sketches challenge is to choose any of their previous sketches - I followed this one from July 2013.
 And the current challenge at Virginia's View is to go CAS! Yay!
