CAS-ual Fridays #99

Hi there!

Just a quick post tonight before heading to bed. I wanted to join in the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge to help celebrate Michele's birthday. I finally found a bit of time to play - yay! Here's my card.


I stamped the circles using a tiny ornament stamp from the "Merry Christmas Tree" cling set from Hero Arts. I used several different Hero Arts inks - Soft Pool, Midtone Pool, Cornflower and Ocean. I also used Color Box Frost White pigment ink. The sentiment is from the "It's Your Day," Hero Arts clear set. I couldn't resist adding a few sequins! :)

We've been having wonderful, warm, sunny weather the last few days and I'm really loving it. There is a bit of a setback coming though - tomorrow night into Thursday we are suppose to get lots of rain with high temps only in the 40's again, and they actually said we will get a couple of inches of SNOW overnight - ICK!! I think I figured out why winter will just not stay away this year - Mother Nature and Old Man Winter MUST BE having an affair!

Thanks for stopping by - I hope you enjoy the rest of your week! :)

This is AWESOME! I must try this technique because it's so UNDER THE SEA in these colors and I have a fish stamp that needs a bg, LOL!

Hi Barb! I really love how you stamped the circles and this color combo is gorgeous!! The addition of the sequins is a perfect little detail!
