Hi, Friends.....

I am here with a super-CAS card to share that I made for the big Winnie & Walter - 3rd Birthday Bash celebration over on their blog!!! (I say super-CAS, but that is all relative....It is CAS for me......but it is still layered!!) Not only does W&W have a GIGANTIC giveaway, but they have 10 different challenges that you can play along with.....including a chance at a big Guest Star slot, if you participate with at least 4 different cards starring their products!! (See their blog post for details on that.) Winnie & Walter challenges are among my favorites anywhere in the papercrafting blogosphere. I hope you will join me in wishing Shay and everyone at W&W a Happy 3rd Birthday and play along with the challenges!!!

I made this card for my dear hubby who works long hours out of town. He has been gone a lot lately on work trips (some for 2 or 3 weeks at a time).  I want him to know I miss him when he is gone and that I appreciate his hard work that enables me to stay home and craft. :) Since it is for a guy, I wanted it to be CAS and not fussy.

I love this brushstroke sentiment from Winnie & Walter - Big Hugs with Evelin T Designs stamp set. I stamped it with Versafine ink in Onyx Black onto a smooshed background made with Distress Inks in Twisted Citron and Salty Ocean. (Don't you love how the colors blended to a bright green between the two swipes?) Lastly, I used the two sizes of pierced rectangles from the Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set and black matting to finish this card. Very simple design, but I know my hubby will love it. <3 <3 <3

Thank you for stopping by. I love reading your kind comments!!! I hope to see you at my Virtual Birthday Party and also over at the Winnie & Walter - 3rd Birthday Bash celebration. I still have more cards to share with you, so I will see you soon!!!

  1. Very nice card Janis, I love the simplicity of this one with the beautiful sentiment!
    I love the cat pics, they are hilarious!

  2. Wow, perfect card for your hubby, and beautifully CAS! These colors are really appealing and yes, the blend of Citron and Salty Ocean (oooh, love that color name), is gorgeous. The black sentiment and thin edging from your mat give this whole design an elegant look.

  3. Lovely card, Janis. Perfectly simple and clean. I'm sure your husband will appreciate it. Thanks for playing along at AAA Cards.
