Hurricane Sandy and a birthday card

Well, it's Sunday night and I'm setting up 4 days worth of blog posts.  Hopefully we won't lose power but by all weather reports, Sandy will make her impact on CT Monday/Tuesday.  I'm on 'call' for the CT State Animal Response Team and am waiting to be deployed to a shelter, if need be - but as of Sunday night - no word yet.

So, while we waited and prepared on Sunday - I was able to be quite crafty!  Here's the first card I made for the CAS-ual Friday's #76 challenge to use kraft cardstock and CAS(E) this Sketch # 3 challenge:


Quite manly, huh?  I used my Skipping Stones stamps and some brads. Not too much to talk about with this CAS card.

Hope all of those in Sandy's way are safe!!!!!!


Thanks for your visit!

Hope we are both safe thru this storm Maria, it is raining here in Pa but suppose to get the brunt of it tonite. My biggest worry has been all of the animals too, thank God for people like you to help them out. Oh, yes, the card is very nice, sweet and simple. Can you tell where my mind is?

Adorable card, Maria! I really like the fun wine glass image and love the negative die cut work. The trio of brads is a great touch, too.
I've got my fingers crossed that you all weather this storm with no problems and no damage! Stay safe!

Ideal card for Casual Friday... and perfect for a male. The wine in the glass looks so real and tempting but alas one glass does nothing to me these days... I need to have much more and in the bargain I get a bigger girth. So I have given up this simple pleasure for the sake of my waistline.
Hope you don't get a call from Animal Response team and that all goes well.
