relax...

(Please check out my Flashback Friday 5.0 post HERE!)

TGIF!!!!

I have a card to share with you and some 'housekeeping'...

This is just a wee card...the kraft base is 4.25 x 2.75...perfect to mat the Cosmo Cricket element die cut:

I'm trying to think outside the box and mix & match my goodies...that's exactly what I did with this little number.  I used my PTI couch image {check it out Aimes!!!}, Practicing Creativity banner and the alpha is ala Lawn Fawn...The couch is on pop dots...here's a peek of the interior sentiment:


haha...cracks me up...I can so be the couch potato...pop in some NCIS and Dexter and I'm set:)

I'm patting myself on the back for still managing my Cosmo Cricket November Project-a-Day challenge!


Although it seems like I've been really cranking out the Christmas cards, I surprisingly don't have nearly as much as I need {I have to add 30 to MY number since I promised a co-worker I'd make some for her}...soooooo this weekend I'll be cranking out some CAS cards...ala Fabriano's...I've been scouring the gazillion letterpress blogs that I have in my reader for some inspiration...I DID get my Letterpress machine and hope to play with it on Sunday:)
