CFC132 What a Catch: make a wish!

This is post 1 of 2 for me today...Click HERE for my Sweet Stamp Shop post.




You all are rockin' the CAS-ual Fridays challenges!  So many inspiring projects!

We're up with a new one


CFC132: May 30- June 20


Theme: Masculine cards... that use ribbon and no kraft (that's the catch!) 


And just what does the winner get???

In addition to getting a fun-filled guest spot on the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps blog, the winner of this challenge will also get a yummy prize from our fabulous sponsor!


Please give a woot woot for:


Make The Day Special Stamp Store is an online retail store which specialises in importing quality craft products from the USA from companies we see regularly in stamping and crafting magazines and blogs but which aren't widely stocked within the UK.  Our aim is to stock all the brands you lust after but don't want to pay the huge shipping and import duty costs for!  By doing that on your behalf and ordering in bulk we can make it easier for you to buy the brands you want at competitive prices.
The store was originally set up in 2009 by a fellow crafter who found herself unable to get the US stamps she saw easily in the UK.  The store has changed owners a couple of times but has always been owned by crafters who do what you do so know what you want.  The store underwent a change of ownership again in January 2014 and my aim now is to grow the store and the brands we carry so we will be THE leading store in the UK and Europe for top quality US stamp, die and craft brands with customer service to match.
Together with an awesome Design Team that showcase the products we sell via our blog, Facebook page and YouTube channel, we aim to bring the best of the USA straight to your doorstep with just a click of a mouse.


Okay, I don't know many people that think masculine cards are easy smeasy to design!  I'm definitely included in that population. 

Here's how I was inspired:


I've really stepped away from ribbon so that was an added challenge for me.

Love working with the papers from the Simon Says Stamp kit!

I used one of my FAVorite CAS-ual Fridays sets:
