Mini CAS-ual Friday



I'm coming at you today with a set of super simple mini card for this week's CAS-ual Friday challenge!
Mini cards are so fun, and working with a smaller canvas gets my mojo flowing so I frequently make smaller cards in multiples.


ATC (Artist Trading Cards) used to be my "mini" canvas of choice, but mini cards are more practical and can be slipped into backpacks, lunchboxes, and under office doors with a smile too!


Can you see the Copic marker in this photo?
 I put it in for size reference. Sometimes when looking at pictures of mini things, you can't really tell they are smaller without something to compare them to. 
All stamps used on these are Practicing Creativity Designs. Love those dandelions. *sigh*

Our sponsor this week is 
They have an amazing assortment of high-quality photopolymer stamps and various other crafty supplies. Check them out!

I hope you feel inspired to join us this week for the mini card challenge at CAS-ual Fridays.

Thanks for stopping by,
*mwah*

These cards are fantastic. I see that you are on the design team for Practicing Creativity Designs. Can I still order stamps from them? The owner's blog and website haven't been updated in forever.

Thanks!

I love these little cards and was wondering (since I saw that you are on the design team for PCD) if I can still order stamps from them. They have some great looking stuff (I already have the bikes set) but the owner's blog and website haven't been updated in a long while.

Thanks!
