The blue and green in this card make me think of baby boy, but this card could certainly be used as a non-baby thank you also. I picked out this Avery Elle stamp for the teeny little arrow. This week's challenge at the CASual Friday's blog is to use at least one arrow on your car - CFC107: Hunger Games . (Clever title, don't you think?) I am also entering this card in this week's Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Anything Goes.

The following card was inspired by this week's CASual Friday Challenge. CFC107: Hunger Games challenges participants to use an arrow on their project. Looking through my stash, I have plenty of arrows to choose from, but somehow putting it all together was indeed a challenge. Here is the card I came up with. Thanks so much for stopping by.

I having so much fun playing with my new Julie Nutting Prima Doll stamp. The following card was inspired by the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge: Stripes. I created the background by dry embossing the patterned paper with a stripes embossing folder and then likely swiping paint across the raised surface. I saw Kristina Werner recently use this technique and just love it. Thanks so much for stopping by!

My husband's parents celebrated their 47th anniversary this year, so I made the following card. It is the same layout as the birthday card I made for my nephew, but like how the paper combination turned out a little better this time. I am entering this in the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge.
My dad retired this year and as soon as the weather was nice enough, he built a back deck onto their home. He did a really nice job on the deck and so I wanted to send him a little note celebrating this job "well done." The following card was based on the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club sketch and I am also entering it in this week's Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge. Thanks for stopping by!
