Can You Case It #57 and The Paper Plunge

I can't believe how quickly January flew by... and now we're just past the half way point in February.
CYCI #57
I have been making cards, though not as often as in the past. With my new role on the school board I've just been too busy. I'm really enjoying the work though. And I've taken a class or two, and I've got a few more booked for March. I'll be going to an all day crop soon, too.

I have two cards made for challenges to share tonight. It's actually pretty late as I type this post... just about 11:00 pm. Given that, I want to get this post completed so I can go to bed.






Here are my cards:
The Paper Plunge - Emboss It!


Can You Case It? Clean & Quick max 2 layers, at least 1 embellishment. For this challenge I'm using the paper bows as my embellishment. The card took 9 and a half minutes. Would have been faster, but it was my first time using the new Bow Builder Punch from Stampin' Up (which I love - it's terrific!). I made a Father's Day card because I couldn't think of any male birthdays I had right now, and even though Father's Day isn't until June, I wanted to be ahead this year.

Tania! Great job getting two completely different cards posted! I am on the School Board for my district too, and know what a time grabber that can be... just keep your creative side humming (and a good sense of humor) and you will be just fine! I love the three different embossed panels - it really has great impact! Thanks for taking the plunge with us this week over at The Paper Plunge!

Hi Tania! Welcome to TPP & thank you for joining us this week. It was fun to see the triple panel strips of embossing on the front. I am a embossing folder-aholic! & punch-aholic!
