I {heart} You :)


Happy day to you!  Our weekend is off to a full swing and we had an action packed back-to-school day kinda day :)  The girls and I shopped til they dropped, squeezed in some lunch ~ then took lil man to see the Diary of a Wimpy Kid movie (Hilarious! 2 thumbs up!) and dinner at P.F. Changs ~ Yum!  I am so glad that I have my small group bible study done for tomorrow's church service or I'd be pulling an all nighter! :)


For today's post, I decided to embrace a CAS card :)   I am always in awe of the CAS cards I see out there and just can't seem to pull them off.  I am definitely a lover of layers :)  The more layers, the happier I get!   I had a good friend of mine ask me to make a basket of misc. cards for her to keep on her desk at work ~ she wanted a variety of all types of cards to give out when her co-workers were sick or need of a pick me up, etc.  I made a bunch of cards that were quick and easy ~ including this one!  And since it's my turn to post at the Cottage Cutz blog today, I thought I'd showcase this one.  Using my Tropical Trio flower die and the Ornate Circle frame die for the leaves, I literally kept this card CAS :)  I added a sentiment in a variety of messages - this one says "I {heart} You!"  




Be well, friends!  It's crunch time here with the girls enjoying their last days of summer!  My son has one week left ::: sniff, sniff! :::  I apologize for the lack of lighting in my picture - I'll have to retake this one tomorrow in the daylight :)


Big hugs,
Bigger Blessings!
