ah-mazing


I'm in awe of my clean & simple card-making friends...it seems that no matter how I try to do CAS, this is about as close as I get!

I was inspired by several challenges to day...love when the challenge combinations come together in a project!  The CAS-ual Fridays #108: Material Girl calls for some type of material on your project...here I used some Hemp Twine and some Burlap Twine.  That "ah-mazing" sentiment from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Exclamations is PERFECT for the Let's Get Word Challenge over at Crazy 4 Challenges this week, too!


The CAS(E) this Sketch #35 has some cool splatters in the back ground which led me to using the City Crafter Challenge #166: Cooling Down... a wonderful combination!


i {heart} papers is the place to shop for stamps, ink, paper, twine...here, I've used the CAS-ual Friday Stamps Exclamations stamp set, Crafter's Companion white cardstock, Studio Calico Atlantic paper, Momento Rich Cocoa ink, and Timeless Tags dies...all from i {heart} papers!


 When you stop in at the IHP store, let them know Stacey sent you!



There's still plenty of time to get in on my Birthday Linky Party fun and a chance to win a fantastic prize!  Head on over HERE and click through the fabulous entries there are already:)   Prize drawings will be held on July 10th at noon CDT!


Make sure you stop by the new challenge, Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge, to see the reveal of the fabulous Curtain Call Crew as we prepare for our first challenge on July 15th!



Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!
