Truly CAS

Wow......this is so out of the box for me. However, I have been away from stamping for several days due to an eye procedure, and really am having problems coloring with the patch/cup I have over my left eye. So I kept the coloring to a minimum and did the embossing and piercing with tools that help me to keep 'in line'....IYKWIM!!!!! The image and sentiment are from the BLOOM set by There She Goes. I have to say that it is currently my very fav TSG set. I could truly use it daily!!!

Wishing you a wonderful day!! Take a moment for yourself, and maybe have a giggle or two.

This is simply and beautifully stunning! A perfect card!

'Eye' 2 have had 'Eye' surgery. It is worth the healing process. Take care with it though and follow Dr. orders!

Joanne, this is so pretty. You may call it Clean and Simple, but there is a lot of work there -- the embossing the piercing. It's just lovely!
