CAS Anniversary Card

My neighbors are out of town celebrating their anniversary and I am keeping an eye on their house. I thought it would be fun to leave them a little surprise for when they get home.

105_9959 As my post title noted, this is indeed a clean and simple card, and I sure like it! I was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest, which was leading me to www.freckledandfun.blogspot.com. Unfortunately, Chrome detected malware and wouldn’t let me actually go to the blog. So, sorry no link on this one. I don’t want to mess up my computer, that’s for sure. I will err on the side of caution.

I used two Cuttlebug embossing folders and some American Crafts ribbon from my stash. I was tickled at how well the ribbon worked with the Breeze cardstock from CTMH(sorry, I think Breeze is retired now)! For those who don’t remember or know, I was a consultant several years ago and I still have a lot of cardstock in my stash, which is why I use product that may no longer be available. The inspiration card had an oval matted in blue with the sentiment and I was going to do that as well, but I kind of liked it without the sentiment.  I also think this card can most definitely be used for many different occasions.

That’s it for today…I really need to straighten up my corner…it’s a mess from yesterday.  *Ü*

Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope your week is off to a great start.
