Luck for Addicted to CAS

Hi Everyone.  Happy Saturday.

The fabulous Sandie is the hostess with the mostest for the Addicted to CAS challenge this week and she has a great code word for us.

 Now, as it is almost St Patty's day, I was very tempted to go along with that as a theme, but changed my mind and went in an entirely different direction instead.

I'd recently purchased a new PTI set called Special Delivery and there was this wonderful sentiment in the "additions" and that was just the inspiration that I needed.

I pulled out my new SU Angled Tag Topper Punch, my Gorgeous Grunge stamp set, along with some Smokey Slate and Crushed Curry card stock.  I had such fun creating this card.

So, here's my "Luck" inspired card:


Isn't that cute?  Of course, I had to use my Lil Inkers sewn border die... I really think I might be addicted to it!   I loved the Gorgeous Grunge stamp for the "road".  In the end, I was very pleased with it :-)

We hope that you will pop along to Addicted to CAS and join us this week.  There's a great prize for the winner a stamp set called It's All About You:

Don't forget to check out the fabulous cards from the design team, too.  I promise you there is lots of great inspiration for you!

On a personal note:

Spring is sort of here... it must be... because we saw the MnDot workers out with cones on the highway this evening.  That's a sure sign that spring.. I mean road season... is on her way! 

Lou and I spent the night at the St Paul Chamber Orchestra tonight listening to Mendelsson, Beethoven and Strauss.  It was a wonderful way to finish out a stressful week.  There really is something very relaxing about sitting down and listening - and watching - talented people play classical music.  Oh.. and any night that is a date night with my honey is a good thing :-)

I'll be back tomorrow with my Paper Players card.  It's my turn to act as hostess.  In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.
