CFC62 & CASology


Gosh, there are so many fun challenges out there that I want to try and just not enough time in the day!  A new one on the block is CASology, where you have a cue word each week!  This week’s cue word is “happy”!  I combined it with the CAS-ual Fridays challenge this week, which is to use a black base for your card.  The samples there are ADORABLE!  Anyway, there are lots of things that make ME happy on this card:


I love polka dots; I love scallops; I love the colors of yellow, black and white together, and I love heat embossing on vellum and coloring the underside with markers!!!  These all make me happy!


I also think these sentiments from Petite Pairs are two of the happiest!


I have a girlfriend whose birthday is almost exactly a month later than mine (and she reminds me that this makes her always YOUNGER than I am) so I’ll add a birthday sentiment to the inside when I figure which one I like best and this will be her card!!!  If you have any questions about my products or techniques, buzz me with an email!

Yesterday I shared how Cassidy spent time in the garden…, she’s playing in a drywall bucket full of bird seed.  This kept her occupied for at least half an hour.  She got some on the driveway, but it’s birdseed…..someone will eat it!!!
