Hello, my friend!

Woot, it's Friday!  
This paper might look familiar ~
yes, you saw it yesterday! :)

I saw this fantastic sketch earlier this week
and thought what a great way to use up scraplings!
I kept the smaller pieces from yesterdays card 
to create this simple yet heartfelt one today.

I'm always in awe of the CAS style cards and
am really tickled with how this one turned out :)
Though I love me some layers and layers, but this year
I'm branching out from my current style and creating new(ly).
And did you notice ......... no buttons on this card either!!
Of course, I will always love/use buttons!!
I had some left over sequins from my son's
school winter project so I added a sprinkle of those
(after all, there is a sequin craze going on in the craft world!)

I wish you wonderment this weekend.
I'll enter this into the Freshly Made Sketches challenge #117
and CAS-ual Fridays - after all, life is having wonderful friends :)

And .. this is card #3 in my 100 x 100 cards!

Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!


  1. Is there??? a sequin craze??? how trendy am I...I love them and use them on lots of things...little sparkles of happy!
    I too would like to do CAS sometimes but alas and alack the colour fiend usually bursts out.
    I really like your card Kelly!
    Happy New Year to you- here's to much fun and frivolity!

  2. Kelly, this card is AMAZING! I really admire the CAS cards that are gorgeous - when I try them they usually look naked. Shhh!!! Don't tell.

    Your little banners and the sequins are a WOW factor!

  3. yay for scraps! great job kelly!! this is a completely adorable card. and yay for keeping up with your 100x100!! i start mine on sunday!!

    lovies, =o) kel

  4. I so love how those banners have a slight curve to them at the bottom!

    Good job on the 100 in 100 challenge...that one scares me! I am lucky to get my monthly obligations done at that! LOL

  5. Oh Kelly this is a stunner - love the crisp, clean colours and the delightful sequins just 'make' it!!

    Happy New YEAR !!

  7. Beautiful Kelly! Love the banners. Fabulous card. Thanks for playing along with us at CAS-ual Fridays!

  8. So pretty! I love the way the banners are hanging and the way you shaped some. Great use of patterned papers too. I have some sequins but never use them as I make a gluey mess. Yours are so neat!

  9. Beautiful card! It looks like you're a CAS pro! I love the colors and patterns you've used, and I love the sequins too. Thanks for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!

  10. Cute! I love that you used your scraps from yesterday's card. They look great!

  11. Kelly, you knocked them dead with a perfect CAS card!!!!! WOW!!! I love this so much! The use of the scraps is wonderful and the whole design just "sings"! VERY nice!

  12. Always love the delightful papers you use, Kelly. Glad to be in the challenge group with you!

  13. Your CAS card is filled with delightful details!

  14. Absolutely love it! Great papers, I used them again too!

  15. This is fabulous!! I love the ricrac topping the banners and look at those trendy sequins!! Fantastic card!!

  16. Beautiful card! I love the big banners! Thanks for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches!

  17. I love the rick rack and the sequins! Very fun, cheery card! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.

  18. I love this fun design, Kelly! What a great use of DP scraps!

  19. Lovely card! Thanks so much for joining us at CAS-ual Fridays !

  20. The way your ricrak holds onto your flags/banners is perfect and I love your use of sequence. What a lovely card all around!

  21. Oooo! I've been stopping in here and there, (sooo much going on for me) that I missed the 100 x 100 goal [although I have noticed something from you in my feed reader every day =)]! Good for you!
    And this card is fantastic! I love me some layers, and distress, and inking, and....but I've found myself doing more CAS lately, too. Partly to branch out, but mostly because I need to create, and I'm working at not having UFOs hanging around. Keeping it simple means getting it done!
