miss you; love you

Clean and simple. It sounds very easy, and I always admire people who can make cards that look like they took no effort at all, but look awesome! My CAS cards start out pretty good, but in the end I just sit and stare at them and think to myself “something is missing here…”

This is why I love this new blog I found called CAS-ual Fridays. They have a challenge each week, and here is what I made for their this weeks challenge,

I love the colors here, and I love the typography. I love the stripes too. I was originally going to use bling, but the blue rhinestones I had just didn’t seem to work so I used pearls here instead. The card has a retro feel that was inspired from the Play date cafe,

And here is a closeup, just coz I love this photo!

I really have been blogging way too much this week, but I am feeling so creative these days and have so many ideas in my head that are translating into neat projects that I just have to share with all of you right away! Also, since I started the last trimester of this pregnancy, I seem to be needing less sleep and am not napping in the afternoon at all. Maybe thats why I have so much more free time. Or maybe its because I have not loaded the dishwasher in two days and now have a sinkful of dirty dishes?

Am off the enjoy the weekend now, and hopefully you wont hear from me until monday again!


Supplies used:
Cardstock: Wassau
Fonts: Cooper std, CK Ali
Pearls: Scrapabilities
