DD #52, CAS-ual Fridays #100 and CASE Study #140

 Happy Mother's Day! I hope all the mom's are having a wonderful day. My day was pretty quiet, met my mom and sister for lunch at Frankie, Johnnie and Luigi's and had a wonderful time and then the rest of the day was mine to play in my craft room. Dwight and Ashleigh are watching movies and I have reruns of I Love Lucy on, it does not get too much better than that.  I have 3 cards to share with you today. My first card is for this weeks Dynamic Duo's challenge, they are celebrating their one year anniversary and you can select any of their past color combinations for your card. I choose Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive for my colors and once again I pulled out some stamps that have not seen any ink, so much fun using Garden Variety!

For my second card I made one more for the 100th challenge for CAS-ual Fridays. It was a quick and easy card and I love these sweet little ice cream cones I found at Micheal's.  I used the three squares down the left side, Polka Dots, Square Card and Birthday.

My final card is a first for me, playing with CASE Study. The colors are not ones I generally use but I really love what Maile made, her style is simply beautiful so I thought I would give it a try. This was a quick and easy card to make too and I was not even going to post it but then I thought, why not. So here it is. Thank you so much for taking time to stop by to peek at my cards....have a wonderful day!

  4. Well, you were certainly productive today, and you have three incredible cards to show for it. I absolutely love how you combined Garden Variety with Day Dreamer, and I am pinning that card right this instant.
