CAS Challenge #9 and #11

Good morning, Friends! I hope your weekend is off to a great start! Nick stayed came home early from school on Thursday and stayed home yesterday. Last night he started feeling better and I do hope that he feels even better today! I really hate it when he's sick! I just want to make it all go away! He just has the coughing and sinus stuff. Now it's just mostly coughing. I woke up with a migraine and I am hoping that goes away quickly. Plus it snowed again overnight. Just when the last of our snow from December was finally melting. Now it's all white again. So I am glad that we have a quiet day around here and can just cozy up to the fire and take it easy!

Today's card was inspired by two challenges at CAS-Colours and Sketches. I used their recent color challenge of Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla and Perfect Plum and combined it with a past sketch challenge from a few weeks ago. Very simple card! I adhered a piece of the Print Poetry designer paper to a Very Vanilla card base. On top of that I adhered a strip of Very Vanilla that was flagged at the bottom. Then I cut a heart from Perfect Plum card stock using the Hearts a Fluter framelits dies. I sponged the edges with Perfect Plum ink and popped it up onto the card. I threaded some linen thread through a Crumb Cake button and adhered it to the heart. Then I stamped the greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes in Perfect Plum onto a strip of Very Vanilla and flagged the end. This is tucked adhered to the heart and tucked under the button. Thanks for stopping by and have a most fabulous day!
