Today I wanted to share a card with you for a couple of challenges (I know you never would have guessed)! But before I do, lets go back to my post from Tuesday, Soda-pop, an Evolution of Terms. Though I know there are cultural and regional differences in terms, I was mostly being silly because...well, that is what I do. But people really chimed in with their opinions. First thank you for actually reading my post and second for leaving your comments. :) Anyway, Kara Lynne commented about drinking fountains versus bubblers and I want to know more about this. I think I have only heard of a bubbler once before, is this an East Coast term? Are there other names for drinking fountains out there? Educate me people!
Now to the card. I have a card made for three challenges. First, the 10 Minute Craft Dash- featuring Stars, second the Little Tangles Challenge for any old birthday and last CAS-ual Friday's Challenge- Material girl. I originally used the CAS(E) this sketch #35 for the layout but knew I wouldn't make the challenge deadline- go figure! For the Craft Dash, I made my card in 7 minutes and 55 seconds. For the Little Tangles I used my Neat & Tangled Sunburst Stamp and for the CAS-ual Friday I used ribbon for my material (hope that counts, I wasn't sure). Anyway, here are the photos.
I love these colors and the DP from BasicGrey Kneehighs and Bowties. You may have noticed I've been using that paper a lot lately! As I said, I used the Neat & Tangled Sunburst stamp that I love and this is my first time using it. I also used my CAS-ual Friday Exclamations set for the "Squeal" part of the sentiment. This set adds fun for just about any card. Finally I used my new Avery Ellie set Party Animal for the rest of the set and the stars. I wanted to add the balloon dog too, but I thought it would take too much time for the craft dash AND it wouldn't be CAS anymore, so I didn't. Not to fear though I will be using that balloon dog elsewhere. :) Here is a close up.
Okey-doke folks, thanks for stopping and I hope you have a good day!
PS- I am participating in the DeNami Blog Hop on the 15th, so please be sure to stop by for that. :)
