Bad Crafter! Bad Blogger!

I know it has been a while, but I've been busy finishing up some awesome scrapbook pages.

And I have a new rule for myself...I refuse to post any more photos of layouts taken in horrifying lighting.

See, I finish them at night so I have to wait for an un-busy time during daylight hours the next day to photograph for blogland.

Ugh. The crosses we crafting bloggers must bear.

On the brighter side of crafting, Cricut fans are now put on notice!! There is a new blog, aptly and unmysteriously named, You should check it out because they are giving away $100 store credit to every day for the next 5 days.

See ya there!

CAS-ual Fridays Challenge CFC1

Yippeeee! I found a challenge that is right up my alley as far as card making is concerned.

If you aren't sure what CAS is a design style called 'Clean And Simple.' I adore it because I work full time and have a little one so quick cards are a MUST in my world.

And I'm very excited to play along in the very first challenge hosted by CAS-ual Fridays.

The challenge was to use text in some form, besides the normal sentiment, as the focal point. I stamped a text background stamp over a Creative Memeories die cut, adhered it with foam tape, stamped my senty in white ink and did the "Nichole Heady" line frame thing around my card.

All this while the little bean slept. Ahhhhh, gotta love me some CAS.
