Friendship Block

Today’s CAS challenge on SCS (cas70) was to have the sentiment be the focus.

As with most things I had lots of ideas but not the right supplies to pull them off. I thought a rebus would be really cute but I couldn’t come up with one I liked. Then I really wanted to do something like Erin’s Sit a Spell card (4th card down). Which got me thinking of a word block (like this) but in a cool retro font like an old circus poster.

I eventually settled on using this old background from StampinUp. Hmmm…I hate it when my imagination out paces my abilities!

Thanks for checking it out.

  1. Ah, glad someone else shares my frustration with a card in your head being much cooler than the one you end up making!

    But I do like this card that you ended up with. I like the way you highlighted “friendship” and that ribbon is adorable!

    (ps-yes, I am happy I started a blog…so far! Mostly because it’s led me to find other great blogs like yours!)

  2. I like it! I like the colors you chose and that friendship is in a different background color. And that always happens to me. I don’t buy something I’ve seen and then later want to try it when I’m designing a card. So you’re not the only one!

  3. Hee, I can relate! But this is nice, Karen. The colors and the ribbon and the way you highlighted the word friendship–all very nice!
