CAS-ual Fridays (tags)

I know it's cliche, but TGIF! 
This work week has worn me down, but I am planning on having some fun this evening, and getting crafty with a friend this weekend, so it's all good:)

This week at CAS-ual Friday, we were challenged to make tags.

I love making tags.
I use them on packages and gift bags frequently so I can never have enough in my stash.
In fact, I made a few more last week for a post on the Casual Fridays Stamps blog too.

Both sets of tags use Merry Kiss-mas and the top two tags also use Snowflake Greetings.

 This week we are sponsored by BossyJoscie! All sorts of awesome craft things are in that shop.

If you enjoy making tags why not join us at CAS-ual Fridays this week and show us your mojo!

Thanks for stopping by & have a great weekend,

Happy Thanksgiving

My internet at home has been spotty recently, so please forgive any missing posts.

Go check out the tutorial I have up on the Casual Friday Stamps blog this morning!
It explains how to recreate this card using the Countdown set!

Also, join us for a two week CAS-ual Friday challenge of including blue on your project!

Stamps used include Merry Kiss-mas and Snowflake Greetings

This is what vegetarians eat on Thanksgiving:

Sweet potato biscuits, smashed buttered rutabaga, balsamic glazed pearl onions, pioneer woman's green bean casserole (minus the bacon) and 9 hour burgundy mushrooms,  Mashed potatoes, vegetarian gravy, lemon roasted Brussel's Sprouts, thinly sliced hickory smoked Tofurky, black olives, stuffing, and cranberry sauce (whole berry).
I couldn't resist playing along with the 10 Minute Craft Dash this month either.
Great colors! And my card took me almost the entire 10 minutes...9:57!!!

Products used include
The light blue solid square is also a Denami stamp but I think it's been retired...:(

Sorry ofr the mass post but my internet seems to be working so I wanted to take the chance to cram it all in! lol

Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends,

He likes pink. Hot pink.

CAS-ual Fridays (so torn)

Hi friends! Hope things are swell in your world today.
It's Friday, so that must make some of you smile, right?

This clean and simple card is for this week's CAS-ual Friday challenge to use paper tearing.

I can't take credit for this cute idea though...*smile* I saw something similar as a vector on an image hosting site a while ago and saved it for inspiration.
I didn't have two tone cardstock, so I glued two sheets of plain red and plain green paper together and then just started tearing! It was cathartic and fun and I got carried away and had to start over! *chuckle*

Stamps are Casual Fridays Stamps and not yet released but will be soon! *squeal*
Consider this a sneak SNEAK peek:) lol

Join in the challenge this week and show us your paper tearing skillz;)

This card is for my 13 year old. 
Well it was made with him in mind, anyway.
