Using stash

Another post for the week ..going well !!
Hi there,  welcome to my room .  Gosh I am glad to see you . Hope that you let me know that you have been so I can repay the visit . I do appreciate the comments thank you .
Went for our usual coffee and scones this morning . Fran and Sandy called into cafe to share some time with us . I think they like the scones too .
Sandy had her grandchildren with her and they were perfect little angels as they always are .
Well Doug and I went to see some of Doug's friends after Fran and Sandy left , then we did some grocery shopping . Was too busy in shops for us [ Doug in his motorised wheel chair has trouble negotiating around shoppers who stand chatting  in isles with trollys together]

As it was a beautiful sunny afternoon we took  the dogs to the park . Twiggy and Jacki are veteran gopher riders now .
There was just enough time to make a card before starting dinner

Now this looks like paper strip is crooked but believe me it is just the angle of photo as I do measure everything . I am still using up scraps of paper from my stash.  These papers are from a
12x12  pad  I've had forever. Might have to start throwing out some smaller pieces !!
                                                                     and inside

Here I added a layer of card same as  card base , Very Vanilla.
I cut out one of the stripes from the paper and adhered it to layer .
                         A simple CAS card , not too much in it , but enough to satisfy my need for instant    
                                      craft gratification .

Now for my quote for tonight ..

Better be off now and check out the Make it Monday entries and leave some blog love there-in .

       Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne.

Hello Shirley-Anne,
Looks like you had a fun day with hubby and friends and scones ofcourse. Doug looks pretty comfortable in his motor. Thanks for sharing this lovely pic and the doggie looks well too.
The card is CAS and that is what makes it special.
Much love,
