WET WET WET at ADDICTED TO CAS!


Hi crafty bloggers - it's great to see you here!

We have another fabulous challenge for you at Addicted to CAS
The Code Word has been chosen by the very talented Loll, and here it is....

Here is my DT card - rainwater and umbrellas were the first things to spring to mind when I saw the Code Word (probably something to do with the UK weather)! 



I designed a template for the umbrella with a Nestie circle die, a small circle punch, and hand-drawn curved handle. 
I then paper-pieced with Tilda Flower Garden papers, and used a cocktail stick for the pole.
The raindrops are "Dew Drops" I bought ages ago - almost forgot I had them!!
Embossed wavy "water" and computer-generated sentiment to finish.
**********
Look forward to seeing your watery creations - you have two weeks to enter, and our CAS perfectionist will win an amazing $15 gift voucher from our wonderful Sponsor Cassie, to spend at Clearly Digi Stamps .

Have a happy weekend everyone. 

HUGS,
