Two Challenges

Extra Extra read all about it! HERE:
Congratulations Michele, now we know the huge announce.
CAS-ual Fridays Stamps is a brand new line of clear photopolymer stamps 
designed and illustrated by: Michele Gross
Wouldn't it be GREAT to win the collection!

 This is what I came up with for over the edge. "Some Weatz Symbols"  is the script font for Steppin' Out, which is over the edge with rounded corners. As I was completing this one I thought of another way to do it with steps. I thought of using a fine black pen and have a flourish swirl from the cross in the 'T", but I didn't want to mess it up. I'm quite pleased with it. What do you think?

Stepping Out means dancing and night life so I think I'll make the deadline for this challenge.
 Wow ...the entries for this are full of inspiration. Robyn's card is so elegant and simple I've all ready pinned it and cased it. I'll feature them in another post. Vicky made this beauty...and Susan's emboss resist card is stunning. The entries show case so many talented crafters, I wish I had to time comment on all of them.


I'll be back later and show you the Christmas cards I've been making using my Cricut and SCAL.
I've not been very pleased with the Cricut. I had to replace it after a little over a year, and I've been tempted by the new know the ones!  But not on my budget. 

Must get this published and entered ...time is running out!

On with the dance! let joy be unconfined;
No sleep till morn, when Youth and Pleasure meet
To chase the glowing hours with flying feet.
~George Gordon, Lord Byron, Childe Harold's Pilgrimage
