CASology + MFTWSC117 + Simon Says

Two things have conspired to really mess up my schedule this week: first, the kids have been on Spring Break and second, my dear husband has been coming home well before dinner.

If I see my husband in the afternoon, my mind says "it must be the weekend". I mean, it is Saturday morning now and he just called to say he is on the way home from checking on a project. The really exciting news for us is his office moved this week, so when I get the call he just left the office it means I see him in 15-20 minutes instead of 60-90 minutes (unless the fair is on, then add another 30-60 minutes).

This is my longwinded way to say I thought last night was Sunday and that I'd missed the CASology deadline.

Turns out I didn't, so here is the card I created.

The CASology Cue this week was "hope" and I made a CAS get well card that is heading off to a cousin.

This next card is based on the My Favorite Things sketch #117 - details of their weekly challenge can be found on the MFT Forum at Splitcoaststampers.

I have a few nieces & nephews that are either graduating or at a crossroad right now, so this will be heading off to one of them. I kept it very CAS and even used one of the brads that has hidden in my stash for years.

Because Anything Goes at Simon Says Stamp this week, I will link up the first card over there.

Happy Easter to all of those celebrating this weekend. There is a big gap between Western & Orthodox Easters this year, so we are still in the middle of Lent and looking forward to our lamb roast on May 5th.

Thanks for stopping by,
