Cooling off with Casology

Hello again Bloggers!

I'm in Canberra this weekend and woke up to the smell of smoke throughout the house, from bushfires about 70km away. Luckily the weather has cooled a little so hopefully this will allow the fire service to get the fires under control.

This week's Casology challenge has helped keep me cool in the roasting weather though:

Since I'm not at home I had VERY limited supplies to play with. In fact, I packed just the bare essentials; card, ink and a few scraps of patterned paper and blue bazzil. I've had that little Cuttlebug snowman die for years - he's pretty cute isn't he but I felt as though he needed a twine scarf to keep his neck warm. I inked some glossy card stock for a bit of a snowy night scene - I'd have liked to have added some snow with some gesso but I didn't grab any in my packing frenzy. A jaunty little hat would have gone well too...maybe next time!

Hope you're having a great weekend and thanks for stopping by,

Claire x


  1. Super cute snowman! I do like the offset layers - funky!

    I can't imagine what it must be like to be so close to fires like that - keep safe.
