Create with Connie and Mary 245

Posted on

Hello peeps! Happy Saturday! How are we doing? I’m good today, yesterday was an extremely busy day at work. The weather was nice, it got up to 54 degrees, yes I had the top down in the car again. I had a nice dinner at IHOP with Anthony, Danielle and Bill, I do like some breakfast for dinner! The first half of today is reserved for crafting and later on this evening my friend Heather and I will be off to Manhattan to see a friend of ours perform in an acapella group competition. I have never been to one of these so it should be fun. What are all of you doing this weekend?

Today I have my card for this week’s Create with Connie and Mary challenge. This week the ladies have given us a simple sketch…

CCMC 245

I do love a CAS card, especially lately. The base of my card is So Saffron Card Stock that I cut to 3 3/4″ x 11″ and folded in half. I made the card a little smaller so that my pieces could hang off the side and it will still fit in a standard envelope. I stamped the image from the Flowering Flourishes Stamp Set in Lucky Limeade on the base and also on the bottom half of the tag. The tag is made from Crumb Cake using my Simply Scored and the Diagonal Plate. It gives you perfect angles for the top sides, simply score and cut them off with your Paper Snips. The top half of the tag is stamped in Crumb Cake with the Beyond Plaid Stamp Set. A standard hole punch is used to punch out the hole. I created the flower by punching two pieces of So Saffron with the 1 1/4″ Scallop Circle Punch and then using my Paper Snips to cut in along the scallops. A mini glue dot holds them together and also holds the Brights Basic Button in the center too. The leaves are made with the 1″ Circle Punch from Lucky Limeade. I stamped the greeting from the Essentials Stamp Set in Lucky Limeade on Whisper White. A piece of Lucky Limeade is cut along the bottom edge with the Finishing Touches Edgelits Die. I adhered it to the back of the greeting and flagged the end. I love the simplicity and spring like feel of the card and hope you enjoyed my card for this week’s Create with Connie and Mary sketch challenge. Thanks a lot for stopping by. Have a great Saturday!

    Hi Justin,
    I have been lurking around your site for several months, really enjoying your work and weather commentary everyday. Today I had to comment, as I especially like this card.
    It is finally warming up here in WI too, in fact thunderstorming now, but 30s again by Monday.
    Thanks for sharing your work, Chris

    • Hi Chris!
      I’m so glad to have you “lurk”. Thanks so much for taking the time to comment! I’m hoping that we have seen the last of the 30’s here! I think we are supposed to get up to 56 today. I can’t wait for the actual spring to get here!
      I hope that you have a very nice weekend!
