CAS-I just love it!

So I had bits and pieces of stamping time yesterday. My little guy is still not feeling well. My heart just aches for him. I'm hoping today is going to be much better, but then I've been thinking that for the last three days and it hasn't been. Funny thing is, Ryan is not a complainer and he has hardly said 3 words about his throat but his ears have been killing him. For whatever reason ear aches, and his are severe, have caused him so much pain. It is times like this that I am so thankful that Tim is a physician. I was in tears (again) because Ryan was in tears (again). I almost had him call the ENT but then he did some research of his own and reassured me (and himself, I think) that this ear pain was within normal post-op complaints. I was also thankful for the CAS challenge on SCS, I needed quick and easy. Miss Boo has started some great CAS (clean and simple) challenges. This week she asked us to use dots as accents, not dotted paper or dotted stamps, but dots made with paper piercing or a pen. I knew right away what I wanted and this card came together just the way I envisioned it. Love when that happens! Can you believe I even used my chalks on it? Yeah, I said it, chalks. When was the last time you pulled out yours? So there you have it, quick and easy. Clean and Simple. I really think it took me 8 minutes to put this together! All products are SUO, although the sentiment is a retired hostess set called So Many Sayings. Have a great Tuesday! Hugs, Lisa


  1. I'm so sorry Ryan is still having so much pain! How hard for both of you. Poor little guy!

    You know I love this card- I love the fact that the squares are the kraft as well as the card! Love the rhinestone and ribbon treatment too! Awesome!

  2. Very pretty. Love the Kraft paper and the pretty colors. TFS!
    Hope your little one gets better soon. I know how it feels when you can't do anything to make your 'baby' feel better.

  3. Oh my gosh - I love this!! I love white on white cards and hadn't thought to do any other color. Doh!! This is so pretty - nice job Lisa!!

  4. So sorry to hear about Ryan I hope he starts feeling better.
    I LOVE this card and the CAS is perfect. YIKES I don't even remember the last time I pulled out my chalks!! LOL

  5. Great card Lisa - it may be simple, but its gorgeous too!


Thanks so much for your kind and supportive words. I appreciate each of you taking the time to leave some love. Have a great day!
