It's a CAS Friday!!!

Hello everyone....it is going to be a rather cool morning here in Central Texas...around 14 degrees at 6AM...yikes!!! Can you believe it's supposed to be in the 60's by Saturday...this crazy Texas weather keeps us on out toes!!! Anyway...I started addressing my Grands Valentines tonight and realized I didn't have anything boyish for Ryan and Cole so I whipped out some Valentine stamps and went to work!! The cactus stamp is from a set called Wanted by Our Craft Lounge and the little pup is a Great Impressions stamp. The dp is from Bo Bunny's Crush collection and the little heart is a K&Co. sticker.....both are pretty simple and boyish enough for 10 and 7 year old boys!!
I made this birthday card set today for the Ways to Use it challenge on Splitcoast. I will give this set to a friend for her birthday which is at the end of the month. Hopefully, I will have time to make a little box to put them in this weekend. I used stamps from Rubbernecker's Birthday Borders set and colored them with copics. They are very CAS.....I may tie a ribbon around the bottom or emboss a border around the images just because they look naked to me...LOL!!!
I'm off to bed early because I have to work tomorrow....I now work one day a week simply because I don't know how to say no...sigh....
Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a safe and warm Friday!!!

The Valentines are wonderful and so prefect for boys, nice and bright not too mushy. Love the birthday set, you are such a powerhouse I am sure you will have a box for them. I am learning about the Texas weather, 14 this morning 80 next Thursday, telling you that is why the big closet, summer on one side, winter on the other side. Have a great weekend.

Hi Joan, I see you've been very busy! The Valentines are great, just right for boys as they aren't all pink and frilly. I really love the birthday cards, soooo CAS! They look very contemporary and I wouldn't change a thing about them, well done. CoB

very cute cards! I would say that 14 is a tad on the chilly side! We are finally going to be in the 60's also. Can't wait. Happy Valentines day.
