Thanks

Good morning!  Quick share this morning before we get out in the sunshine for a couple of baseball games.  My card today is for the first challenge over at CAS-ual FridaysMichele has done a fabulous job launching the new challenge site and the design team consists of so many of my favorite bloggers.  I'm looking forward to playing along as much as possible.

My card today made me happy.  It was one of those times when I had an idea in my head and it actually translated to the card!  I could see using this design with different colors for quick and easy teacher card sets.

I'm also entering this for this week's One-Layer Wednesday Challenge to use circles.  Pop on over to Susan's blog too, she always offers great design tips!

Hope you have a beautiful Mother's Day Weekend!

Oh, I like. I like very much. Red and black is a great color combo and to use it in a CAS design makes it that much better. I hope you do play more and more! Looking forward to seeing your creations. Thanks for playing at CAS-ual Fridays and I do hope you enjoy the games today!

Maureen said...

adorable, Lynn!! I think CAS is much more difficult as you really have to think of placement and design...this did translate to paper and then some!! I am definitely going to check these challenges out and stretch my style! Good luck to the boys on their games. Tony just left to work on the house and I've got a bit of studio time here today :D hugs!
