I have a few new dies cuts from my friend Joyce (Cards-by-the-Sea) sent me an envelope full of wonderful goodies. My favorite of the bunch is this Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco is my favorite place to be! As soon as I held that die in my hand I knew what I would do with it, so happy to say that I have one more to play with. I have not played along with CAS-ual Fridays challenges for sometime and I had to make my card work. This is their 2nd birthday and 100th challenge, so it is party time! You still have some time to play along and I love that this challenge is a tic-tac-toe, so much fun. My tic-tac-toe is diagonal, upper right corner to the bottom left corner. The inside reads - May This Year be Your Best Ever - Happy Birthday.
My second card is for this week's Muse challenge and Laurie from Soapbox Creations made a fabulous card for inspiration this week and her timing is just perfect, the school year will be coming to an end soon and a card like this will come in handy. I had this "ruler" ribbon for some time now, Joyce was so sweet and sent it to me. She was up in my neck of the woods a while back and made her way to my favorite place for ribbon, Britex Fabrics. I was saving this ribbon for the perfect card and I think I finally found it. Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by to peek at my cards....have a wonderful day!
