Happy Friday everyone! I hope you had a good week. Mine has been a bit unusual. A week ago, I started to experience some eye trouble. Conjunctivitis along with another eye issue makes life a bit miserable. I am thankful that I am feeling mostly better, however, it's hard to feel like you have accomplished much of anything when you simply can't see. Sigh. Thanks for listening.
So now for the real reason you stopped by. Today I have a card to share with you for this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge: create a clean and simple project using banners or flags.
The winner of this week's challenge will win a $25 gift certificate to Ellen Hutson.
This week's challenge over at Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday is to create a flag border. I think I haven't played along in over a year *gulp*. So I was super excited to combine these challenges. For my card I used my double ended banner die and banner builder die collection. Instead of using patterned paper, I chose to stamp on cardstock. I used Background Basics: Houndstooth, Background Basics: Newsprint, and Boy Basics: Grunge Me on the banners. The splatter is also from Grunge Me. I added my sentiment from Birthday Basics. The final touch was adding some green graph washi from DeNami Design. Now, I do not own any yellow washi tape, so I created it using a previous Make It Monday: Custom stamped washi tape tutorial. Unfortunately it is not respositional like original washi tape, but it is great to create something when you do not have it in your stash.
Well, that's it for me for today. Remember that you have until noon on Thursday to link up and play. I can't wait to see what you create! Literally. Thanks for stopping by!
