ShowCASe week 219

It seems that the once dreaded One Layer Card no longer strikes terror into the hearts of cardmakers these days and we were delighted with the lovely submissions for our Splatter Challenge.
With out further ado, here are our choices  
Week 219
Amazing simplicity, fabulous splats!

Great masking on this lovely splattery background.

Great masking, sumptuous splattering and LOTS of white space!

It seems that a few entries had evidence that the creators were having such fun splattering that not a lot of white space was left. Of course our choices this week reflect the uncluttered style synonymous with the CAS genre!
Wonderful work ladies, please take the ShowCASe badge from the page at the top to display on your blogs and everyone do join us tomorrow for another fun challenge!

We are guilty of a big 
In the excitement of all the celebrations for our 4th Birthday back in February, we omitted to post the winner of our January prize sponsored by the fabulous Tara at 
She generously donated a £15 prize as well as sending two sets of stamps for the birthday giveaway.
We are most grateful Tara and apologise profusely for our omission!
Now for our Prize winner.
Bits and Pieces
Bobby is a loyal contributor to our challenges and takes time to comment on fellow crafter's submissions. So Bobby we'll be sending you the code to redeem at Tara's store.

If anyone else has not yet visited Make the Day Special, I do urge you to do so. The range of products seems to increase  by the day and Tara's service is second to none! 
SO Thank you Tara and Congratulations Bobby!
Please take your winner's badge from the page at the top of the blog.
Now back to commenting on all this week's fabulous submissions!

Week 220 Theme

Here's a theme to conjure up a pretty picture
Up, up and away!
For this one you can think balloons, planes, other things that fly and things that can be carried along on the breeze.
Let your imagination take flight!
Here are our samples

I think this SU balloon works really well with the panda from Unity.  I've added a bit of bling with gold embossing, mat and sequins.

Here is the second line of the song... Up, Up and Away.... in my beautiful balloon!
This Woodware set is perfect for paper piecing, which is just what I have done here with some Cuddly Buddly papers.

Card Recipe:
Uniko Studio: Birthday Bash
WOW: Metallic Copper Sparkle EP - new favourite!
Clearly Besotted: Sunburst -sentiment
MFT Die-Namics: Fishtail Flags and Blueprints 15
