CAS-tastic Father's Day

Pin It

Happy Stump Day, hampers ... and welcome to another fantastic CAS-tastic Wednesday challenge! And since Father's Day is this Sunday, this week we're creating Father's Day cards.

My card is a CASE of a card created by my sweet friend, the uber-talented Karen, of The Bald Dragonfly. I adhered to the 'Official Rules of Card CASE'ing,' and changed up Karen's design in at least three fairly apparent ways. Clicky HERE to see Karen's gorgeous card ... and here's my take:

To play along ... and we hope that you do! ... simply create a clean and simple Father's Day card.

Upload your project to your blog or online gallery and link your post to the CAS-tastic Wednesday Challenge blog, HERE, by 9:30 p.m. EST on Tuesday, June 22, 2010. Please mention that you're playing in the CAS-tastic Wednesday challenge on your blog post. One random winner will be chosen to receive their choice of five digital images from this week's fantastic CAS-tastic sponsor, "Di's Digi Downloads."

Be sure to submit your link to the "Simply Linked" widget on the CAS-tastic Wednesday blog ... and if you upload your project to an online gallery, such as Splitcoast Stampers, SNR, or Paper Craft Planet, please be sure to use Keyword: "CWC008" so we can find your project.

Be sure to check out the fabulous cards posted by the rest of the fantastic CAS-tastic design team:

We can't wait to see your Clean and Simple Father's Day cards!

Sooooooooo, since I'm laying kinda low of late, I haven't had the opportunity to hang out with Sheila. But when I'm not around, Reid-the-Wild-Child always finds a reason to call me. In spite of everything I say, he's really a sweet boy ... and he'll prolly grow up to be a nurse ... or an axe murderer.

"So, Aunty, know what? My Great-Gramma is coming to see me!" Reid exclaimed.

"Well, that's great Kiddo, you must be excited. Where does she live?" I asked.

"At the airport." Reid answered.

"The airport?"

"Yup, whenever we want her, we just go there and get her."

Thanks so much for swinging by ... hope your day is fantastical!
