A New Challenge Blog

Hi Everyone,

Last night I came across a new challenge blog. So, I thought this would be a great way to get back into the groove! It's called CAS-ual Fridys. The CAS stands for Clean and Simple. This is their very first Challenge and you still have time to get in on the fun. Here is a link to their page with all the details  You have till Wednesday Night to enter the first challenge and then each week they will post a new challenge on each Friday. You should join the fun!

So here is my card.....

I just recieved a box of the new Tim Holtz glazed Kraft paper and just had to try it! I have been itchin' to get inkey, lol. I used the Distress Stains for the color which made it so quick and easy. (Wild Honey, Broken China, Peeled Paint, and Spun sugar).
Also if any of you have been having trouble using the Rosette Die try running a piece of scotch tape down the backside of your strip before you cut. For me this was the perfect solution to keep it from cutting apart.

Here's another card I did. It was hard to choose which one to use for the challenge.

Thanks for stopping by and taken a peek!
