Anniversary Wishes with a Score!!

There were two challenge that I wanted to play along with this week...
  • Less Is More: Anniversary.  I have this fun Doodle Frame that I thought would be perfect for a truly CAS card.  I was thinking of my own husband when I kept this card to a little platinum embossing and one red gem - but I'm guessing he will think I went overboard.
  • CASual Fridays: Even the Score.  I don't know why I don't think of using simple score lines more often.  I'm always looking for a stamp or a die cut to highlight an image or sentiment, but often a set of scored lines would do it better.  On this card, I thought the scored lines would support the frame so it wasn't left hanging.

Love You

Love You close up


Most importantly today, I just wanted to let all of my blog friends know that I've not made it around to comment much and probably won't until after the holidays.  I'm so sorry - but I bet you all understand.  I am still reading your blogs every day, but I often find myself scrolling through blogs in those few minutes between shopping, baking, wrapping, decorating and, quite honestly, a lot of wonderful coffee time with friends!!  Thank you for all of your inspiration!

  • Stamps: The Alley Way Stamps Doodle Frames
