Silhouette Cameo CAS card



Hello everyone,

I don't know why I still love holiday weekends when I don't have to go to work, but I do, and this weekend I'm looking to spend some time with family, some time with friends and some time crafting - so what could be better.

The current CASology challenge has the codeword 'Electric'



which I have to admit had me stumped for a while. But I know someone who is having to burn the midnight oil to get an important piece of work finished and wanted to make a 'thinking of you' type card for her, so I decided to combine the two. I immediately thought of the coffee machine that keeps her awake, and came up with this card.




I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut a coffee pot, die cut a scalloped panel, and mixed up a lot of stamps from different sets to make the sentiment. I was inspired again by the white on white panel on Gillian's card for the current Muse Challenge, and I'd also like to enter the current challenge at Make My Monday which is Food and Drink.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Hugs
