Addicted to CAS...maybe....

Happy Wednesday to you all...I been practising my CAS cards...I find these take just as long as 'colouring in' to get really scared when it comes to stamping direct onto the card blank and I practise on scrap paper over and over till I've got the confidence to go for it!! I also seem to be stuck in black and white mode..but CAS to me is crisp white space...
Here are two that I made yesterday..
The sentiment for this one was stamped and punch out..

the sentiment for this one had been stamped onto the card as well as  the sweet button embossing...phew..!!
As you can see I still have to put just a teeny bit of colour on them too...a red gem on the first one and a red thread on the button for this one....yes I need to get a bit more brave
I'm going to enter these two for this weeks challenge at
Addicted to CAS - Embossing
Its still cold and snowy here so I'm not going out today... Mr Sainsburys kindly delivered my groceries yesterday so me and Ollie will have a quick (very quick) stroll around the block and then back into the craft room . 
Here's Ollie snuffling around the the bird table yesterday after I put some old biscuits out for the birds..little monkey you would think I don't feed him!!!
Happy Crafting
