TGIF...no wait...I'm retired!!!



Yeah, pretty much every day is Friday for me! Well, make that Saturday. Still not used to being retired, but so far, I am really enjoying it. CAS-ual Fridays (a good reason for thanking goodness it is Friday) has a fun challenge this week. Black and white plus one. Plus one color that is... and I chose blue. And kept it very CAS. Lots of lovely white space. This was a fast card, and I had a nice, quiet time creating, that is after the PING. Once the ping stopped reverberating in my skull, it truly went together quickly. Going to our church's Scrap and Stamp event tomorrow. Will be fun. We do it every third Saturday, except in December, and it goes from noon till 7pm. I'll post more details about it once I get more organized...


This is a really fun challenge, so you should go and play along too. Really!


I like the CASness of this card. SU white cardstock, grunge stamp, and black ink. Random black cardstock, PTI stamp, and Colorbox blue ink. That's it. Happy Dances everyone.

Just to confuse you... here in the UAE, Friday's are Sunday, and it's the first day of the weekend. That makes Thursdays our Fridays. Luckily Saturday is Saturday. Then Sunday is our Monday.
4 years living here and still getting used to it!!!
No confusion about loving your CAS card though!

I love that layout and how you managed to get your black borders so even! The pops of blue are really casual (looks like a bike ran over it! lol!) Fun masculine card!

GASP! Stunning card! You're going to have to market that "ping thing"....everybody who sees the results of your pings is going to want to buy some!

Perfectly matted split panels make this card sing. Effective placement of the sentiment too. I am really loving this grunge stamp - perfect for guy cards. Ardyth is right - it does look like a bicycle tire track (in a good way) ;)

So CAS, beautiful, cool and elegant! Love your card! Hugs, Karin
Enjoy your Sunday evening too - without having to think about work tomorrow (I'm VERY envious!!!)

Great CAS cards- they're often so hard to stop adding too. Great stamp. Love that every day seems like a Friday. I could well get used to that!!!

Hi, this is wonderfully clean and simple! That blue is fantastic but still keeping lots of white space with just a hint of black. Perfect! Kx
