CAS is All I Can Do

Happy Friday, peeps!  Yay, the weekend at last and maybe some sunny weather!  My mojo has taken a vacation and all I can seem to come up with lately are CAS cards...not that that's bad, but I just can't seem to get into making more complex creations!  SO, I have two cards today, the first is the card I made for all the men's birthdays at my church for the month of April, and I used the sketch from FMS:

I was sad that Guy Greetings was being retired; it was my go-to masculine set!  I love the images and the font, so I decided to ink it up in some Tranquil Tide ink to coordinate with the True Gentlemen DSP:

It was easy to fussy-cut the antique car:

and since I was using my Stamparatus, I was able to stamp the sentiments fairly quickly with the moveable plate:

I had six to do, and it was a little "wobbly" by the time I did the sixth one, but it still worked fine!  I just had to cut them into strips!

My next card is for the CAS(E) this Sketch sketch:

At church I saw a lady carrying a black polka-dotted tote bag with a strap that I can only describe as Crisp Cantaloupe! It was so cute! Since we don't have that color any longer, I used Peekaboo Peach along with some DSP from the Pick A Pattern line to make a congrats card to a new recruit:

I stamped the horizontal piece with the retiring Brushstrokes background stamp on the diagonal for a little additional interest.  I hope the lighter orange shade doesn't make this look too "Halloween-ish", LOL!  I fussy-cut the flower from Painted Harvest and added a sentiment from Colorful Seasons:


And on the inside, a sentiment from Beautiful Bouquet and another floral image:

Thanks for popping in today!

I don't have any Cassidy pictures today, but I thought I would share a picture of my dad holding his newest great-grandson, Sawyer, on Easter:

He was quite content to sleep in Great-granddaddy's arms!!  And notice the EAGLES green pacifier, LOL!!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Your guy card is a classic for sure and I love how you were inspired for the second card! Great colors! Love the pic of your dad!

Great guy card! Love the fussy cut car. The peach and polka dots are a great match and bot halloweeny at all! Your new recruit will love it!

Lisa Elton said...

A true classic indeed, what a perfect guy card. CAS and not too fussy! That does sound like a really cute bag and I love that it inspired this beautiful card of yours. What a sweet photo of your dad and the wee one! My dad is nuts about his four greats!

Nothing wrong with a CAS card - I’m sure it helped your masculine production line run smoothly! Love both cards and whilst Guy Greetings has never been a favourite of mine, agree it will be missed - it’s super useful and versatile and I’ve used it many, many times. Love the photos of your Dad - a smashing pair!
