As many people have noticed, The Play Date Cafe and CAS-ual Friday both had "black, white and red" challenges, but CAS-ual Friday went with the pun of "read." I made a different card for each challenge because I was in a card-making mood yesterday. First up, no pun:
My BIL's birthday was last week (actually a day after mine yet I am always late with his card). He's been restoring an old car for forever, so when I saw this cut file in the Silhouette store, I popped it right into my cart. I cut it out of black vinyl so I wouldn't have to worry about gluing those small pieces and to give it a shiny look. (You can see all my supplies at the end of the post--yes, I'm now using the inlinkz link manager tool so I can be part of the cool blogger crowd.)
My pun cards I based on my most recent favorite book(s), Isabelle Gillies Happens Every Day and A Year and Six Seconds: A Love Story. Since both books involve her trying to keep her act together during and after her divorce, I thought this sentiment would be appropriate (and also appropriate for the Wee Memories Simply Sentiments challenge)
Paper Cupboard. She is fully aware of my Keep Calm and... addiction, and this fun stamp set has lots of phrases from which to choose.
Finally, I also have the winner of My Mind's Eye Lime Twist "Life of the Party" paper pad from Saturday's post:
Hope everyone is enjoying a nice Monday---even nicer if you're off for Labor Day!
