Bring the Bling

This is the theme at CAS-ual Fridays this week! 


I am definitely NOT a bling person!  Actually, my husband loves to be able to spoil me, and he is always wanting to buy me some gorgeous jewelry, but once I had my one watch, one necklace, one set of diamond earings, one engagement ring and wedding ring I told him to stop, that was way more than enough for me!  I am not a materialistic girl, and jewelry, well, it's just too much "stuff".  Don't get me wrong, I totally appreciate and adore what he has gotten me, and I can and do admire beautiful pieces of jewelry, but I don't need it.

Ok, so I digressed!  But basically I made the world's simplest card last night.  I had one piece of bling left from a gift from CTMH (Close To My Heart) and I decided to use it, whether it fits in this design or not, I have no idea, but the tought sounded good in my head at the time!

Paper: Cardstock (PTI)
Ink: Tuxedo Memento Black; Copic Markers; Soft Leaf Shadow Ink (Hero Arts)
Stamps: Hero Arts (Graph Background); Lawn Fawn (My Silly Valentine)
Other: Bling (CTMH); Glossy Accents

It cannot get much more CAS than this,  for me!

I went for a 7 mile run this morning at 7am, oh man, the humidity!  It was already 81F but the humidity was right up there!  And this was a short run!  But I just am so happy to be out there.  We run in Terry Hershey Park, and for a little while you can forget you live in a concrete jungle!

Have an awesome day!

So funny because I'm not a jewelry girl either. The trouble is...my hubby is a jeweler! Crazy, right?! But I do love some bling on my paper crafts and your little card is delighting me to no end! Absolutely adorable :) Thanks for playing with me at CAS-ual Fridays!

You are so funny, Brenda! I know what you mean about jewellery. I think I loved it a lot more when I was younger but now, as a mom, it just gets in the way! All that money could go toward stamping supplies. LOL Your card is adorable and perfect.

I love the bright pop of color your pears bring and that you surrounded them with a blingy circle. Thank you for playing along at CAS-ual Fridays.
