CASEing myself


Hi friends!
In an attempt to get a head start on my school-end thank yous I CASEd myself and created this card.
The original can be seen here, from last June. I changed things up a bit by adding more stitching and using the alpha impression plate and notebook border.
Red and green are hard colors for me to put together without it looking too holiday-ish, but Teacher's Apple is a great set and it works somehow!


I also want to remind you that our first CAS-ual Fridays challenge is coming up tomorrow! Are you excited to play along?
 I think there is a contest happening at the Facebook fan page too so go check it out for a chance to win some prizes! And be sure to leave a comment saying that DANA sent you!

I hope you'll stop by tomorrow to see my first post with CAS-ual Fridays!

Love the chalkboard look of your background, and the notebook border is a great addition! Definitely two sets on my wish list are Teacher's Apple and this alphabet.

LURVE this one, Dana! I love how the white letters on black look exactly like a little chalkboard tucked back there! The Simply Chartreuse just makes everything else POP! Awesomeness.

Your colors are FINE! I agree, it IS hard to use red & green w/out thinkin' Christmas but this works great together. I LOVE the sentiment, too. Is that a stamp?
