City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 407 ~ Birthday Post, Special Guest Ros Crawford

This week is a crazy week for me, is the once a year where I help out my friend at the NAB convention, plus my regular teaching, so I am working literally from 8 AM and only get home at 8 PM, long day, so you won't see me much here! : )

If you haven't know yet, we are celebrating City Crafter Challenge Blog's 8th Anniversary this month!


Oh yes, City Crafter Challenge Blog is running for 8 years now! 
Through this challenge blog, I met a lot of people and designers whom I work with, one of the nicest most of you know is Ros! If you are here often, you should also know that I met Ros in person in London, you can read HERE about our first meeting, sweet memory!!!!

For the month of April, CCCB is doing our tradition challenge CASE ME IF YOU CAN, pop over to City Crafter Challenge Blog to check out the card Ros made for us....

and this is my take.....


I picked up the watercolor element on that beautiful card of Ros..... and the colors too.



since I am already there, I might as well make a few....

Parsley, Safe, Rosemary and Thyme



oh since the stamp set is out, a coupon more with a different feel to it, no watercolors, just solid plain cardstock.


Oh ya, we have a prize this week, head over to City Crafter to see more of this week's beauties!!!!


products used on the cards above -

The stitched frame die is from Cutplorations
The herb stamp set is HeroArts

Gorgeous set of cards with water color background! Love the CAS cards on the plain card stock, too!

Wow these are all so lovely. When I saw the first I immediately thought, "that design would make for a great set of notecards". And it did! I love the soft feel to the watercolored set, but the uber CAS bold second set is great too cuz those herbs really stand out.

These are so pretty, Kirsty, and I love them as a set! The watercolor is stunning! Love the clean design, too. The black stamping just pops against those backgrounds, and I love the tone-on-tone layers!
