Bonjour from Quebec City everyone. (That’s about the limit of my French, so don’t worry that I’m going to try more!)

I have been raiding my sister’s crafting stash again, for an idea to enter the CASology challenge for this week. The cue card is above. I see there are already lots of great cards on the challenge site, and wondered what to do. Then my sister showed me her Heroarts monthly stamp set. Have you seen this set? Absolutely amazing. So many images – animals, trees, grass, birds, hillocks – you name it, this stamp set has it.

As soon as I saw this cute little giraffe I was hooked. And then I saw there was a grass stamp…….sorted. Well, so I thought. Talk about trying to position a straight stamp along the bottom of a piece of card. That took me a little while, then placing the little giraffe ‘just so’…….huh. Definitely not the ‘simple’ of clean and simple, let me tell you.

The colours are basic – green for the grass, (Stampin Up), and black for the giraffe (Versafine Black Onyx) and sentiment, so I added the piece of white card directly onto a black base card.

Tomorrow’s posting will be the colour challenge from CAS Colours and Sketches, my third post as guest designer this month. I hope the colours chosen inspire you to create a card to join in the challenge.
