CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #33 –Two Week Challenge!!

Happy Happy, crafty friends!!

Only a few more days until Christmas – YAY!!  This year at our house will be special as it’s the first year that our grandson will truly be aware of gifts, and Santa, and all the fun that goes along with the holidays.  Can’t wait to see his big eyes when he gets up Christmas morning . . . .

Enough babbling – let’s get down to business, shall we?!  This week’s CAS-ual Fridays Challenge is a doozy!!  We’re playing with Brown Paper Packages Tied Up With String – create a CLEAN AND SIMPLE project using kraft and twine.  Perfect for the holidays, right?!  AND this week’s challenge is a TWO WEEK challenge, so you’ll have plenty of time to play along with us!!
This week’s fantabulous sponsor is Market Street Stamps, who very GENEROUSLY provided us Girl Fridays with some of the newest stamp releases – how lucky are we?!  Market Street Stamps has some amazing stamp designs that I know you’re going to love, and I believe that the prize package this week will be a goody, too!!  Hop on over to the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge blog to see what it is.  Thank you, Market Street Stamps!!  While you’re there, be sure and peruse the delicious inspiration that the other Girl Fridays have prepared for your perusal.
CFC32 Signed Sealed and Delivered
Here’s my answer to the challenge.  I got to work with the brand spankin’ new Faith In You.  Gorgeous images and sentiments!!  I simply stamped the flower bouquet image with pigment ink, masked it, and then stamped the vase.  Added a bit of bling, and then popped up the window die cut – fresh flowers through the window . . . who’s ready for spring?!  LOL  The sentiment (which I wish I had centered instead of placing it to the right of the card – it looks funky there!  Ugh!) is from another Market Street Stamps set called Slow Movin’.

STAMPS:  Faith In You and Slow Movin’ (Market Street Stamps)
INK: Sage (A Muse Studio), Onyx Black VersaFine Ink (Tsukineko)
PAPER:  Kraft CS (PTI), Snow CS (Bazzill Basics Paper)
ACCESSORIES:  Honeydew Twine (The Twinery), Small Window Die (Memory Box), Self-Adhesive Rhinestones (Doodlebug)

Before I sign off for the week, I’d like to thank you all for being such amazing visitors to my blog – I adore you all and so appreciate the time you take each day to stop by and leave me some love.  You’re one of the reasons I love what I do so very much.  Wishing you all the happiest of holiday seasons.
