Happy Hump Day! Thanks for stopping by today! Last night I finished making a card...(it's usually one a night)...and I had time to make another...but not really enough time to start one of my typical cards. Otherwise, I would have not gone to bed at all. And I hate leaving a card not completed. So I thought I'd try some more of those CAS (clean and simple cards). Again, I really enjoyed the quickness of it. The enjoyment of not "hemmin' and hawing" over what papers to use and how to do the layout and is this too many embellishments or should I add more? I did kind of wish that I had this shovel charm though to hang from the ribbon...I think I will order some anyhow as Hanna Stamps is having a Summer Sale on all paper, ribbon, charms, and more...even some of the clear and rubber stamps are on sale!!! 10%-35% off. They have also started carrying Prism Simply Smooth white card stock...which is suppose to be awesome for using with Copics!!!! But I have not been able to find it. So I can't wait to get my grubby little hands on some! I love Papertrey Ink card stock....but it sucks my Copics dry...fast! I use to use Neenah brand...but I found that it would bleed. That drove me NUTS. So I am looking forward to giving Prism a try. I have heard great things.

Anyhooooooooooo.....My first card went so quickly I made 3 more. 1 exactly the same as the first. And two more. I don't know about you guys, but during the summer I have less time to stamp...so quickie cards are a good solution. I feel like I have made some great discovery! LOL! But as many of you know, once you get into one way of cardmaking, you forget to go back to the begining sometimes. The deets for the next two cards are here...Card 2 is the beach ball card. Card 3 is the card with floating boy.

I love the pail of sand card! Finally, someone who agrees that Neenah bleeds!! I thought I was going crazy! I'll have to try prism too. Taylored Expressions also has some Copic friendly cardstock but I haven't used it enough to evaluate properly!
