Cards by Cathryn

Welcome to my blog, to all my followers, and to everyone who is visiting for the first time. I would love it if you would consider becoming one of my followers today! Your presence here is so appreciated, I hope you enjoy the moments you spend here
 It is Monday again, where did the weekend go? I had a great weekend hopping around the world enjoying looking at other peoples desks through WOYWW  .
For those of you who have never visited that site, it means "Whats on your work desk Wednesday" and about 200 people actually post pictures of their workspace so people like me can be curious and see what they are up to in their crafty lives.  I am in the process of having a new craft room built, so I am looking for ideas, especially for organization, and boy do some people have organized craft spaces! And as all my friends know I am the Queen of Clutter, so any help I can find will be great for the new space. Anyway, if you haven't checked it out, maybe you would like to, and hey why not join in the fun and post a picture of your desk this coming Wednesday.

My card today was inspired by a few different challenges that I plan to enter my card in today.  I followed the sketch created by Sarah at mojomonday 
I chose the color scheme of aqua and cherry red...yes look for it there is cherry red on there, from thedynamicduoschallenge   
The theme of the card which is the cue word FRIEND comes from  addictedtocas
 And finally I will enter the card in the challenge at stampandcreate where their April monthly challenge is to use of at least one die cut on your card. 

Today I enjoyed spending time creating. I find it relaxing, therapeutic, and just plain enjoyable. I appreciate each and everyone who comes to read my blog, and I hope you will take a moment to leave me a comment. Each comment means so much to me.
Have a creative day,
Hugs, Cathryn


  1. Beautiful! Love the flower diecut!
    Have a nice day!

  2. Good morning Cathryn

    What a lovely card! I love the clean look of it and the colours work really well together. I would love a designated craft room. My living room is cluttered with my craft stuff. I need to wait until my son leaves home first...
    Best wishes

  3. You've done a beautiful job answering all these challenges. I love the fun polka dots and the lovely flower and sentiment you used. Thank you for joining us at Dynamic Duos. ;-)

  4. Beautiful color combo Cathryn!. The inked edges on the flowers make them look so real! The paper piercing is awesome and never fails to add interest and texture to a card!

    It must be so exciting to be in the process of creating a new crafting space. Yes, there are so many amazing rooms with such efficient storage systems. If you haven't already checked this one out, have a google and search out Nicole Heady's craft space. She posted some pics a while ago and I am still dreaming of such a room! She may have a link on her Papertry Ink blog.

  5. Love those polka dots on your DSP and your flower is so pretty. Nice springy colors! Thanks for playing at ATCAS this week. :)

  6. Love your calm colour scheme, pretty flower and paper piercing. Thank you for joining us at ATCAS.

  7. Great paper piercing and the flower is just gorgeous! Thank you for sharing your card with us this week at Dynamic Duos.
