And...I had just spent a little time over at Darnell K.'s playhouse (virtually, that is) and she was musing over the reasons why we make cards. To play challenges? To use up product? Check out her post. You'll be LOL at your desk, trust me.
Well, this strip of neon paper with circles punched out of it fell off my pile in the move process. Ta da - Addicted to CAS has a challenge theme "Circles." May I say a card was born.
So go with that and add some circles embossed to the card front. Then use up a negative die cut also living in the pile (see, I just can't throw this stuff away) and a wood veneer bird I had painted yellow. Why? Just because. (He, at least, had found his way back to his pals in the little drawer where my wood veneers live.)
I also had the cool feather sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch #31 in my brain, although my tree dictated that I kinda sorta had to mess with the sketch a bit. Oh well.
Cuz I had no idea for an appropriate sentiment/use for this card, I gave it an XOXO sentiment in a heart. Actually just tried to convince DS to give it to his girlfriend for her bday, suggesting he write something nice in it so she can save it and think about him again in 25 years when she finds it in her keepsake box... No deal. He 's not giving her anything - what kind of kid have I raised?
Well, here it is for your viewing pleasure ;)
