Happy Sunday!!

Good morning everyone....I am kinda shell shocked this morning!! I met my friend, Bev (TexasGrammy), in Salado yesterday...it's a little village about 12 miles south and it's full of shops, antiques, and the best little stamp shop ever!! We shopped for a few hours and then went back to my house....we fed the horses, went out to eat, and then stamped till 3AM...yikes!!! Bev made a card called Best Friends for one of the Cling to Hope challenges on Splitcoast for Breast Cancer
awareness (the brown challenge by Lori Craig) and I thought I was making a CAS card for the pink challenge by Lydia Fiedler but I failed to read all the criteria. It was supposed to be pink and for a holiday of some kind. I hardly think making a wish is much of a holiday!!! That's what happens when I stay up too late and my brain cells stop functioning...LOL!! Anyway...I'll share it here with you and make another one for the challenge.

The silhouette from Flourishes Kids at Play set was stamped with Black Onyx Versafine and embossed with clear ep. The frame was made around the image and sentiment with a Labels 12 Nestabilities...the pearls in the corners are the only embellishment. This is pretty simple but very CAS!!

Edit: Betty Wright (gbedwright) suggested I enter this in the Flourishes World Card Making Day challenge since it's not an A2 size and it's pink....thanks Betty!!!
Sweet Bev is making friends with Midnight....


The girls have been a little cranky because we made them wear fly masks....they can see through the mesh but the flys can't attack their eyes. They will pout for a few days before they get used to the masks.
Thanks for stopping by this morning...have a great Sunday!!!

your card is fabulous....I have that set in a bag upstairs but I am not allowing myself to use if until I finish purging in the stamp cave AND go to a 'Craft Unload' sale on Saturday where I hope to get rid of all the sets I have purged....then I can play with my new toys....it is KILLING me not to play with my new sets....

anyhoo...am so happy that you had a wonderful time with Bev....how lucky it is when we meet our SCS friends face to face.....such a joy

hope you had a great time...and I LOVE your CAS card

This is so pretty Joan, I love pink. I have to laugh that you didn't follow the rules, I'm the same, we're two peas in a pod!

This is such a beautiful card, I'm glad you shared it with us, love the CAS, but it really does pop. Just love your horses, being a horse lover, horses have such personalities and it sounds like yours definitely do.

Kelly said...

Ooooh such a pretty card, even if you didn't read the last paragraph. Love the silhouette image. Sounds like you and your friend had a lot of fun but 3AM...you're going to need a nap about noon!

It's fun to see your "beauties", Joan! Very pretty CAS!

Leslie Miller said...

What a great day that sounds like, and what a beautiful place you have. Looks like a dream! I've had the pleasure of meeting Bev and I'll bet you two make quite a team. Now, your card -- gorgeous clean and simple in pink! Very striking, but delicate all at once. LOVE the design! It certainly does fit Flourishes' challenge beautifully!

I'm fairly new to cardmaking and have a couple of Nestabilities but I notice that your frame looks like it's just embossed not a cut out. Is that true? How is that done?
I really enjoy your blog.
