CAS-ual Friday & Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenges

Well, after a great start yesterday, I never did get back to the office on World Card Making Day. Mid-day soccer followed by the SDSU football game managed to take up the whole rest of the day, but we won both, so I can't complain.

My dear son planned to be up at 6:30 this morning to get his homework done - I heard him in the shower and then about an hour later realized he hadn't come downstairs to eat (extremely unusual behavior for the 13 year old bottomless pit). Further investigation found him dressed, showered and asleep on the couch LOL.

While he napped, I spent sometime doing this.

The CAS-ual Fridays Challenge 73 is to to celebrate the women in your life.

CFC73:  For The Girls- Create a Clean And Simple card that celebrates 
the women in your life.

The Really Reasonable Ribbon challenge RRR57 is Pretty in Pink & Ribbon to promote Breast Cancer Awareness month.

I spent way too much time masking this My Favorite Things Vertical Greetings stamp, but was determined to get it right. The pink text designer paper is from the Authentique Lively line and a few pearls and ribbon finish things off.

I made this double loop bow with the Bow-Easy I picked up from Really Reasonable Ribbon. This is seriously the most fantastic little tool and makes bow making a breeze!

I am also linking this card to the World Card Making Day Hello/Thinking of You Challenge at Moxie Fab World.

Thanks for stopping by,
