CFC74–Put Your {Heart} Into It!


Phew!  What a crazy week it’s been around here! We’re almost finished moving – one more day, and I think we’ll have it licked.  NOTE TO SELF:  Next time you think about moving, just light a match and walk away – you’re too old to move again!  LOL


I’m popping in today to share the latest and greatest CAS-ual Fridays Challenge, which is to create a CLEAN & SIMPLE card or tag and include a heart or hearts in your design!  Fun, right?!

This week’s sponsor is a company that is near and dear to my {heart} – get it?!  LOL  i{heart}papers is one of my go-to online stores, especially when I need something amazing and I need it now!  Kate’s customer service and product lines are second to none, and she’s as sweet as can be.  I {heart} her!  Oh, I’m killing myself!  LOL  i{heart}papers has provided an awesome prize for this week’s TGIF Winner, but you’ll have to click through to the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge Blog to find out what it is!  Oh, and while you’re there, be sure and check out the other Girl Fridays’ projects that they created for your viewing pleasure.  Thanks, i{heart}papers!!

CFC74 - With All My Heart

I enjoyed this challenge so much!  I pulled out my heart shaped die to create a die cut negative – I love how the bright pink cardstock shows through and creates some fun dimension, yet is still very simple.  I then used a banner die to create the banner out of vellum; I die cut the words out of black cardstock and adhered them to the banner, which I adhered to the card front so that it draped across the bottom of the heart.


PAPER:  Blackbird and Avalanche CS (Bazzill Basics Paper), Taffy CS (American Crafts CS), Vellum CS (PTI)
OTHER:  Folded Banner Die, With All My Heart Die, and Thank You Heart Die (Simon Says Stamps), Peel N Stick Adhesive Sheets (ThermoWeb)

So have you seen the other exciting stuff that’s going on at the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge Blog?!  CAS-ual Fridays has a new “little sister” and there’s a big announcement that’ll be made on October 19th. We’re having a little linky party that we’d love for you to join in on to help spread the word about the new “little sister” announcement.  You can find all the details about that HERE.  I believe that there’s a prize involved, so you really should check it out!


That’s all I’ve got for you today, kids!  Things will again be somewhat quiet around here as we’re headed south for the winter on Sunday.  Once I get settled there, our kids will be there to visit.  But I have a few posts ready to go while I’m in transition, so I hope you’ll stop by often.  Thanks for stopping by today – it means the world to me!

Love the pink of this pink! The vellum banner with the oh so sweet script is awesome. Great to hear that you are on the home strecth with your move! It really is both physically AND mentally exhausting!
