CAS-ual Fridays Challenge CFC12

Today I wanted to make a card for my better half and when I saw the challenge on the CAS-ual Fridays blog I knew what I was going to make. I love rub-ons and I have a ton of them, but I knew exactly which one I wanted to use. I used “Amazing” from Autumn Leaves’ “French Twist” rub-on. I cut the front of the card using Tim Holtz On the Edge “Ornate.” For the inside of the card I used My Mind’s Eye “Mama’s Curtains“. I cut the inside label with Spellbinders Nestabilities’ “Labels Two” and stamped “you” with Recollections’ “Once Upon a Letter.” I hope you stop by the CAS-ual Fridays blog to see all the great inspiration and maybe try out their challenge.

Blog Candy

When I first started my blog I wanted to give away blog candy…I had no followers! Then I had 10 followers and I so wanted to give away some blog candy. I know, it would have been a little sad. However today I decided to give away some blog candy, just because I can. I really don’t have anyone to craft with here [I have one great friend who also crafts but our schedules never work together 8^)] and ya’ll have been so sweet in all your comments that I want to do a little something for you. So leave a comment on this post and then check back on Friday July 29th to see who wins. It would be nice if you would follow me, but you don’t have to. You will have one week to get me your mailing address, if I don’t hear from you I’ll pick another winner.

I’m sorry it’s been so long since I‘ve been on here, but hopefully I‘m back for a while. Today I want to share with you some cards I made using Tattered Angels’ Glimmer Mist Robin’s Egg, one of their screens and Tim Holtz’s “Good Thoughts.” After the Tattered Angels dried I stamped and heat embossed the “Good Thoughts” stamps. I like that these cards can be used for both male and female recipients. Sometimes guy cards are a little hard to come up with. I am posting this for “Made it Myself Mondays” at You Had Me At Craft. You should check her blog out, lots of inspiration. I hope you will come back to see me soon, I’m pretty sure there is going to be some blog candy given away soon. 8^)
