CAS-ual Fridays: The Long & Short of It!

Time for the Friday dance my friends!  What are your plans for the weekend?  We have basketball and show choir on tap. The first show choir competition of the year is tomorrow and I'll be road tripping with a couple of other moms to see the kids compete.  Can't wait!  I think I love it as much as the kids do!

Now...back to the program at hand!  We have another fun challenge for you this week at CAS-ual Fridays.  Our sponsor is CAS-ual Fridays so you have a chance to get some of the fabulous new stamps just released this week.

Now onto the challenge theme...the long and the short of it!  Make a card with one long and one short edge - 3x6 or 4x8.  I made two 3x6 cards featuring the new CAS-ual Elegance stamp set.  I love it...such fabulous sentiments!


Happy Friday my friends.  I'm looking forward to seeing your gorgeous creations.

oh, 2 beauties! I LOVE the twine on the first under the frame and how you layered on the second :) Your weekend sounds fun! I've been ordered NOT to talk much and no working out by my dental surgeon! Guess that means I have to stay in the studio! LOL and email you all weekend! Your road trip sounds fun and I hope that means there will be pics and videos!

Oooh I recognise card 1!! It has pride of place on my mantle piece!! Love the clouring in both cards and the little button on my card is perfect.
What a fun weekend ahead for you. Callum has to work Sat from home so I am hoping to craft and Sunday will be a chill day for us as Callum has been so busy at work, poor thing is tired!! xx
