CAS-UAL FRIDAYS CFC41

Happy Saturday crafty friends! I hope you are having a beautifully crafty day, as I have.  Finally, I had time to make some cards and did I have fun!

I have been sharing a lot of Mother’s Day cards since I am participating in Operation Write Home’s* Mother’s Day challenge. Even though it is not for the Mother’s Day challenge, it will be sent to our troops for mailing home.

Today, I decided to take a break and make a fun card for CAS-ual Friday’s CFC41 challenge ~ Jest for the Pun of it.  Use a pun, or a sentiment in a silly way to create a joke, on your Clean And Simple creation.

The panel is made using Distress Inks on watercolor paper.

The sentiment was created on my computer and printed out on card stock. The drink is popped up on a pop dot to add dimension to the card.

I won these cute stamps in the OWH Stars and Stamps VCMP challenge. They are from DeNami Design and were perfect for this card. I quilled one of the lime slices to add dimension.

I think I am beginning to enjoy making CAS cards, but I don’t think it will ever replace the fun I have making vintage/shabby cards.

In addition to the CAS-ual Fridays challenge, I made this card for:

Mynnette’s Spread the L-O-V-E challenge since this will be sent to our troops and will make it’s way home to a friend or loved one.
