A site for my handmade cards, accompanied by my photos and written meanderings which are occasionally witty, often tongue-in-cheek, and rarely profound. Beginning in June 2013, you'll also see lots of NBUS, which is an acronym I coined for Never-Before-Used-Schtuff. Feel free to join in, use the acronym, and use up your NBUS too! Thanks for coming by! Have a beverage and enjoy!

CAS-ual Fridays CFC 44 - It's As Easy as 1-2-3!

Happy Friday!  I've had a marvelous craft-filled day.  I went with my friend, Donna, to the Scrapbook Expo at the Pleasanton Fairgrounds.  There is certainly no recession in the world of scrapping and stamping - leastwise not in this area!  You've never seen so many women in one place walking around smiling from ear-to-ear! 

Today's CAS-ual Friday challenge image:


The challenge is to create a project using:

1. A Pattern
2. An Image
3. A Sentiment

I popped a circle over my balloon in the balloon image to bring out the circles in the patterned paper, and added the initial and rhinestones.  (The notable thing about that last sentence is that that's how I actually talk.  'I popped a circle over the balloon on the balloon to bring out the circles' ... na'ern? say what?  Makes sense to me.  Tilting one's head to the side helps.)



The sponsor this week for the CAS-ual Friday challenge is Clear and Simple.  Head over to see their latest March/April release and all of their amazing new stamps and dies!
