What's Cookin' CAS Card

Happy Saturday everyone!!!  I am so excited to have a day off!  Before I get to today's card I want to say THANKS to Lisa @ http://indymermaid.blogspot.com/ for passing the Butterfly Award to me!  Lisa's blog is truly inspiring and she always leaves really nice comments on my blog...  I feel honored that she thought of passing this award on to me!  Thanks again Lisa!  :)  The card that I made today is a bit out of my comfort zone...  The challenge was to make something CAS (clean and simple).  As you know, I LOVE adding Stickles and "bling", so this was definitely a challenge for me!  :)  Hope you like what I came up with....

Use it Tuesday- use an uninked stamp (and I used some hoarded patterned paper)
CAS-ual Fridays- make a mini card (no bigger than 4 x 4)
Scrappy Moms Stamps- use Country Life cartridge
Whimsical Wednesday- make a card "just because"



Card measures 4" x 4"
Country Life- utensils cut at 2.88"
Cuttlebug- swiss dots
Scrappy Moms Stamps- A Pinch and a Dash
Distress Crackle Paint- clear rock candy
Glossy Accents

There it is!  Enjoy!  I'm in the process of cookin' up some more projects for you!  :)

The jar resembles my real jar that holds my wooden spoons & other kitchen gadgets. I'm in awe of the small size you cut the utensils and they look so well cut. Small cuts for me are a challenge in themselves. Great job! Way to go on getting this to cover quite a few challenge bases as well.
