Perfect Blend for Addicted to CAS

 Hi Everyone.  It's the weekend! 

I hope you are all warmer and survived the storms around the country and are enjoying your weekend.  I must admit, I found it amazing to see that there was snow on the ground in 49 out of 50 states!

It's the fabulous Deepti's turn to host our challenge at Addicted to CAS this week and she has a great code word.'

I know one thing, since Lou bought a cappuccino maker for me, I've  really been enjoying my two-three cups a day.  It's a wonderful thing that I can be on a conference call and have my cappuccino delivered to my desk!

In addition, our dear friends R&R are as appreciative of Starbucks as we are and have fond memories of sitting in their favorite Starbucks at New Year.

So, when I saw this challenge, I knew that I would be bringing out Perfect Blend.  Here's my card:

Perfect Blend

 Now, I bet you are wondering why I decided to add embossed watches and clocks to the background of the card.   Well, that's a really good question and it's all because I had this idea for a sentiment running around in my head.  All I needed was my trusty My Digital Studio and I was all set.

Here's the inside:


Now, I hope the embossed background makes sense :-)  This ones for you R&R. :-)

We hope that you will play along with us this week.  The winner of this week's challenge will be able to choose Digi's from our fabulous sponsor:

Now, that's worth playing along for, I think :-)
The design team have created some fabulous cards for your inspiration, so don't forget to pop along to their blogs and check out what they have created for you.
On a personal note:
I have been MIA this week.  It's been a long week at work and I was a little distracted by the Olympics.  Well, a lot distracted actually!   I have completely and utterly been glued to the TV watching Slopestyle.  Those guys are amazing!   I was very sad to see Plushenko have to pull out for the individual men's skating.  What a great athlete.  I have so enjoyed watching him skate.   However, he went out in a blaze of glory for the team event and has given so much to the sport and inspired so many, he deserves to be able to relax and enjoy his family :-)
Tonight, Lou and I celebrated Valentine's Day by attending a performance by the St Paul Chamber Orchestra.  Schubert, Prokofiev and Beethoven.  What a night.  It was enchanting and exhilerating.  We are back, will be having a glass of wine, and watching some Olympics!
I'll be back tomorrow with my Paper Players card.  In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.  Colleen, continued prayers for you.  Ruth Ann, thank you for thinking of Colleen.
