shenanigans.



green pink


I'm continuing to enjoy experimenting with my Distress stains.  I swiped the Fabriano card base with 

Spun Sugar
Worn Lipstick

The hexagons (Sweet Stamp Shop) have been die cut using Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm.  You can't tell by the photo but the largest hexagon is really ombre, not solid.

The sentiment....pure CAS-ual Friday....one of my favorite sets because I love that word, shenanigans.

I'm linking up to




(I decided to go with hexies!)

and 



I love Thursday's...they are my Friday's.

That is such a fun word, isn't it? How can you not smile when you hear it? Love your adorable card. I never know what to do with hexies, although I love them. This is perfect!

This is so much fun! I love the swipes of red...and of course I love the word shenanigans, how can I not with a name like Shannon?!! ha ha! I'm hoping to play with my distress paints today too :) I am having a love/hate relationship right now with anything distress, so hopefully today will be a love day!! Happy Thursday/Friday!!

Love the artsy look of your card and the color combo is definitely a winner!

Kelly Griglione said...

Eeek, I love everything about this card, Amy!! The green + pink, hot! Then you've got the subtle nautical theme (I just got some of that paper too!), hexies, enamel dots, a color swash, and "shennanigans". Can it get much better? I think not. Thanks so much for joining the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge!

Totally Shenanigan worthy, I love it!

Erin (Homemade Cards by Erin) said...

Not my normal color combo, but great job. I can just hear my little man giggling up a storm on a funny word.

Rose said...

fun fun fun :)

Trinh said...

Fun design! And you come up with the best color combos.

Michelle said...

I love this color combo and your card is just fun. The preppy color combo and the baby anchors work very well together. 'Shenanigans' is a fun word! It's mischief, but seems like classy fun mischief, not malicious...IMO, the best kind.

Angie Tieman said...

Awesome card, Amy! I love your blocks of color! And I agree, shenanigans is a special word!

cm said...

Put my niece, nephew and me into a room, and shenanigans are guaranteed! Fabulous word, and your card is a delightful 'pairing' to go with it! Love the swipes!!
