CAS-ual Fridays - Scallops

Another from my pile of challenges is this week's CAS-ual Fridays - Scallops! Let's just say I backed into this one. I was playing and futzing and hacking paper into smaller and smaller pieces, and this card is what came out:

I started by cutting the THANKS from a piece of ... you guessed it: the upcoming SU SAB papers. Why does it take me an hour to cut paper into smaller and smaller pieces and end up with something completely NOT what I set out to make?

I call this CAS only because it's not a fussy card. Just because a card is CAS, don't think it doesn't take just as long - or longer - to make. Just sayin'.

In the end, I backed into another entry for two challenges. The scallops are for the aforementioned CAS-ual Fridays scallop challenge, and once again I have dots and stripes, so I'll enter this over at the Simon Says Stamp blog, too.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. CAS usually takes me longer than fussy cards. I like what you did with this one.

  2. I know what you mean about CAS cards...they can be a challenge! Love these papers and use of white space!

  3. Super adorable. Thanks so much for joining us at Simon Says Stamp.

  4. Cute card!
    Thanks for playing at CAS-ual Friday!

  5. I'm so glad you qualified your CAS statement. So many people think CAS is a 5 minute card. LOL! I wish :) Great job with the scallop challenge! Thanks for playing with us at CAS-ual Fridays!


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
