CAS 4u


Good morning everyone! How's your Saturday shaping up? I've done my yoga, had my tea and am planning to do some weeding in the garden in a few. My hubster is helping an elderly neighbor set up for her art show today, so the munchkins will be put to work with me in the garden!

Just a quick, CAS card today. I know it's not my typical forte, but my work is pretty eclectic so why not?!
Stamps are WPlus9 Designs from the Woodgrain Silhouettes set. Ink is ColorBox Chalk ink in Aquamarine. White gel pen traced around the inside of a nestie. After punching two small holes on either side of the stems, I threaded some 1/4 inch white satin ribbon through and tied a bow. The entire card took less than 5 minutes!

Don't forget to enter for a chance to win some PTI blog candy, here. I will draw a name tomorrow night!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend!
