Be Silly...

Hello! I hope you all have had a great weekend!  I sure did!  Mike and I celebrated Valentine's Day on Friday after he came home from work... lucky for me he usually gets home around 3:30. :)  The trade off is that he leaves the house at about 4:45 each morning, but it's worth it-- he misses all of the crazy Atlanta rush hour traffic. Anywho, we went out to dinner-- we love Japanese Hibachi-- then to Verizon to upgrade our phones (our friends will be thrilled we have now entered the current century!) and then shopping.  All in all, it was a great evening!  We were able to spend some time with my mom on Saturday and Mike's folks on Sunday, and the weather-- believe it or not-- got up to the 60's.  It felt like a beautiful Spring day today, a nice change from the snow of last week. :)

So, here's a little card I put together for the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge.  CAS (Clean and Simple) cards are really a challenge for me. Sometimes the simplest things take the most work!  I kept dropping the dots or gluing them to my fingers. And the sentiment took about four tries to get it clean. I had to re-cut the card as many times!  Oh well...  I think it turned out cute. :)

I used CTMH "Dotty for You" paper for the dots, layered with black cardstock. They are popped up on foam tape to add some dimension. The sentiment is from the "You are My Happy" stamp set.

Well, that's about it for now.  Time for some Olympics viewing and Downton Abbey.



  1. This is such a cheerful, fun card! I love the polka dots :-)

  2. Love the pops of color with the black accent! Cute card! Thanks for joining us at FMS!

  3. Love how the black layers really make these circles pop! Fun card! Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.
