Happy Monday, Stampers! Hope your weekend felt like a week!
Today's card was created for SCS's Clean and Simple challenge, CAS14, "Let's Rock and Roll." For all the rockin' challenge deets, clicky HERE. To go straight to the card photo gallery, clicky HERE. As always, clicky on the photo for the ginormous view of my card.
While the Rock 'n Roll Technique is certainly fun, and creates a really kewl effect, I find that I always stain my wood mounts. And since I'm way too anal, I then spend hours sanding the stains off my wood mounts. Do you do this too?
I'm also wondering how "clean and simple" this card is ... I'll upload it to SCS anyway, but it seems to be a bit busy for a CAS card. Whaddya think?
TIP: Try doubling up on your foam tape to add even more dimension to your stamped images. This is especially effective when you have more than one cut-out image on your project.

Soooo, this weekend Sheila needed a birthday present for one of Reid-the-Wild-Child's little friends. And, of course, she needed my help. So, off we go to our local Wal-Mart to find a
cheap nice birthday gift.
As we were wandering aimlessly through the store, we heard the intercom come on:
"I have a customer in hardware who needs assistance at the paint counter."
Then, a few minutes later, we hear the intercom come on again and, in a tentative voice, we hear a woman page:
"I have a customer by the balls in the toy department and need assistance."
We weren't the only ones in the store who cracked up ... and of course, THEN we had to go to the toy department to
check it out shop!
Never a dull moment ...
