It's Your Day

A CAS birthday card for two challenges at CAS-ual Fridays and CASology.  
I am also entering this into the anything goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp.
I was at a loss as to where to start with this set, so I went back to 
Nichole's introduction of the Grunge Me set back in April of 2011.  
My card is a case of one of her's on this post. 
I made two slightly different versions.


CFC63: Create a Clean And Simple project using the challenge colors-
lime, aqua & navy

Simon Says.....ANYTHING GOES ! 
  


Supplies ~ 
Stamps:  PTI Grunge Me & Framed Out # 3
Paper:  PTI white
Ink: SU Tempting Turquoise, Midnight Muse  & Lucky Limeade
Additional Supplies:  Various brads from my stash

CASology ~ Berries

The cue word this week at CASology is "fruit."  I hope these berries qualify as fruit, since I don't have many fruit stamps.  I haven't had much time to stamp lately, but for once happily I cannot blame my job. We have been celebrating birthdays ~ my son's, my Mom's and mine. Yesterday was my son's party at the Youth Hall with fourteen boys playing basketball, tennis, and bowling.  If I could have harnessed all of the energy in that room, the energy crisis would have been solved ; ).   
Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend.  I'm off to get ready for our family party today. 




 
Supplies ~
Stamps:  PTI Harvest Berries
Paper:  PTI White
Ink:  SU Gumball Green (& Riding Hood Red under the bling)
Dies:  PTI Small Scallop Border
Additional Supplies:  Rhinestones by Kaiserscrapbook

HB2U

A birthday card for my son who is going to be eight this week.  
He loves Wii, in fact he's playing now :).  
I used the colors for this week's ColourQ challenge (perfect, since his favorite color is red).  
The cue word this week for CASology is "Happy."  
I am also entering this card into the "anything goes" challenge at A Passion for Papertrey. 

I haven't had much time lately to stamp, 
but was really HAPPY that I took time to make this card.
What a great surprise I had on Friday when I found out that it
was featured on Moxie Fab World on Cath's Out & About  post.

For our challenge we have decided to take our 
"Less is More"  
header as the inspiration for this challenge.
