CAS-ual Friday!


Welcome!
Is everyone else getting a lot of rain like we are?
Our blind cat, Barnaby, got out yesterday by mistake and I spent hours walking around in the rain searching for him. *shiver* I couldn't find him, but my hubster went out to look and came back in 15 minutes with him! YAY!

So...it's that time again...
FRIDAY! 
And that means a new challenge at CAS-ual Fridays
This week it's all about color blocking.


I love this theme so much I created 4 different cards, 
but I plan to share them periodically so as to not overwhelm you all! *chuckle*

Last week's tic tac toe challenge was a blast, and you really stepped up your game! It was so difficult choosing my favorites. 
But I cannot WAIT to see what everyone comes up with this week. I think this has been my favorite challenge so far! *grin*






We are sponsored by Crop Stop this week. You can find anything you need there!

Come join in the fun with CAS-ual Friday's color blocking challenge!!

Thanks for stopping by,
*mwah*

FOooh, this is just divine. I love that you stamped on your blocks of colors and well, the colors you've chosen are just downright awesome! Glad your kitty came back too, or that your husband brought him back.

LOVE this card. Clever to alternate the little bits at the bottom!!!

But more importantly, I'm glad you found the cat. I would have been beside myself!

Hoping all else is well in your neck of the woods & maybe you can come to one of the upcoming get-togethers!

Parquetry (sp.?) Perfection! What a neat idea. Very cool. First semi sunny day here in over a week. Things are very damp indeed. So pleased barnaby is back in da house! Yay!

Very cool card! I like how you stamped the images and then cut the blocks apart and glued them on mismatched!

Marlena M. said...

I love the look of cut off at the top and flipped...like a quilt! The twine is a nice, soft touch to cap it. ;)

Joyce said...

I love this card. It's so interesting to look at and try to figure out how the patterns repeat and colors move.

Karolyn at Paper Therapy said...

Freakin' amazing! The color blocking is magnificent, but then to bump up the BAM with the stamping brings this to another level all together! WOW!!

Kryssi said...

This is stunning, dana!
