Double CAS Day


Good morning everyone....how are you on this wonderful Tuesday morning?? I have to take my Dad to his doctor's appointment in a little while but first I wanted to share a couple of CAS cards I made yesterday for two Splitcoast challenges. This card was for the CAS challenge to make something that was inspired by the word school. The Red Lead Paperworks stamped image was colored with Copics and the sticker ruler from October Afternoon and the star finishes it off. It's pretty simple but perfect for one of my Grands!! Sorry the picture is so dark...I was having a heck of a time adjusting my light!!!


This one was made for the TLC challenge hosted by Judy...she wanted us to make something without stamps. We could use stickers, rub-ons, chipboard, etc. but no stamps. I have had these cute little cloth covered stickers for a while now and finally had a reason to use them. They are from The Little Yellow Bicycle and the sentiment is an old rub-on from Stampin Up! That's why I never throw anything away...ya never know when it might come in handy!!!!

Thanks for stopping by today....we are going to babysit two of our Grands this afternoon and then my girlfriend is coming from San Antonio to spend the night....you can bet we won't get a whole lotta sleep!!! Poor George...he just shakes his head and goes to bed....he isn't one to stay up past 10:00...LOL!!! I tease him by saying he can't hang with the big girls and he is the first one to agree with me. Of course, I can't hang with the big boys by getting up at 5:00 am either...LOL!!! Have a great day!!!!

Great cards. Love the adorable image on the first one...so beautifully colored and I love the ruler as an accent!

...and P.S......Totally LOL'd when I read your comment about how you wouldn't be excited about scrubs. I'm all about comfort....but in 29 years you can ask me if I still like them. I'm sure I'll be sick of them after a while. :)
