CASology Challenge - Week # 249

How are you all doing??? I am currently typing with fingers so cold I can hardly feel the keys. The frost in the morning is so cold I've decided to do the washing after school each day and hang it out before its too dark. It's still freezing though, thank goodness our fire is on!!

Which brings me to the current challenge at CASology where their cue word is 'Warm'. Something we won't be experiencing much of as we head into Winter here in New Zealand. 

I spent this past weekend with my Mum so had plenty of time to organise not only my Design Team cards but also some challenge cards for fun. I was thinking warm colours, warm clothes etc and then found the perfect stamp set that I hadn't used before:

Talk about 'hot stuff'!! These cute little 'stuffed peppers' are from Clearly Besotted 'Vegetable Patch'. I had these given to me by a friend of mine who was clearing out her stash of stamps. They had been waiting for the perfect opportunity to be used, and this was it!!

This was super simple to do. I stamped the mouse image 3x across the card front, along with the sentiment, using black ink. I then coloured away with my Faber Castell pencils and voila! They are so cute!!

Its close to dinner time and I can hear the kids rustling around in the kitchen cupboards, so better get something prepared. Since its so cold I'm going to make Butter Chicken with home-made Roti Chenai, so will be warm inside and out!

Take care


  1. Very cute Shona. Love your colouring. There's no doubt winter's here, is there? Not that it officially starts for another couple of weeks!

  2. Shona, I hope you are staying warm! (I'm cold just reading your post!) Sweet little hot peppers, what an adorable image and cute sentiment! Great coloring, great CAS design. Thanks for joining us at CASology!

  3. What a fun take on the cue word, Shona! Thanks for playing along with us at CASology this week!

  4. These little cuties are definitely perfect for he cue word, Shona, and I love the sentiment! :) I'll send warm vibes to you - it's starting to heat up over here. Thanks for playing along with CASology this week!

  5. Too cute for words and so clever!

  6. Love it!! They are too cute for words and so apt for the cue! Know what you mean about being chilly! The thermostat has definitely dropped here too. Could go a butter chicken right about now! ;-) Thanks so much for joining us at CASology, and my apologies for the very late comment!!!

  7. Sooooo cute. Those little peppers are, indeed, hot stuff and will server CASology billiantly.
    Oh yeah, wish I could just pop over for some of that yummy chicken. Sounds delish.
