This time I'm here to remind you that you still have until Saturday June 13th at noon (British time) to enter our current challenge at Simply Magnolia!!  Team Glamour's turn with our "CAS or Fully Loaded" projects...then it's up to you!!  The fabulous prize for this challenge is a GDT how exciting is that!!!

Okay...GULP...well in my current quest to step outside of my comfort zone...I went with...YES...a CAS card!!!  I SO admire all the talented bloggers out in blogland that whip up a CAS card so beautifully!!!!!  For me it is so hard not to add the frills, lace, ribbon, buttons...etc... and most of all my BELOVED Frantage...YIKES!!!  When I see other's CAS cards I say to my self "Wow...that looks fabulous!"...looking at mine I think "Hmm...looks NAKED to me!!!"

Okay it's time to reveal the CAS card!

Here is what I came up with...

DP is from  my stash...
"BIRTHDAY wishes" is stamped on the reverse side of DP...
a button found it's way onto the card too...
 I so LOVE this image "Edwin with Teo the Dragon" from the Animal of the Year 2013 collection...

So this started out as my Grandson Quinn's birthday card...then I'm colouring away and thinking hey "How did this hair get brown??!!"...well now...can't give this to Q-man because he's!!  So I guess I have a male birthday card for my stash!!
