Can You Case It #53…

As a member of the Design Team at Can You Case it, each week the team is challenged to create a card with a specific challenge.  This week the challenge is a quick and simple card…oh my goodness.  You can find it here.  These cards are definitely a struggle for me and are NEVER quick.

But, I really like the way this one turned out even if it wasn’t quick.  Here’s the card…


This would be a great Valentine card and quick too if you already had the design.  Here is the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

  • Ink:  Memento Black and Real Red
  • Stamps:  Hello Life and Gorgeous Grunge

Can I tell you how beautiful the weather is here today?  Almost 60 degrees and sunny.  Zoe and I will be taking a glorious walk this afternoon in the sun!  Hope we see the eagle today, too.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…


It’s a frame of mind.

I’m inky…and HaPpY!
