I'll Listen


two cleaned out tin cans + one length of really long string=
countless memories and funny conversations


CAS-ual Fridays has another great clean and simple challenge this week, a sketch designed by Laura.  And, the fabulous sponsor is the super cute, super sweet Lawn Fawn!


My card features an oldie but goodie set by Lawn Fawn, Just My Type. I colored the phone, trimmed it and then mounted it onto a misted panel that had been printed with a sentiment (done up on my word processing system). A long piece of floss replaced the stamped cord and wraps around the card front. Kind of reminds me of the Telephone Game where you take two tin cans and a length of string...

Check out the blog for the details, rules, sponsorship prize and all the great inspiration from the Girl Fridays over at the CAS-ual Fridays Blog!

Supplies:
Cardstock: (White) Office Max

Stamp: (Just My Type) Lawn Fawn
Ink: (Tuxedo Black) Momento
Markers: (Copic)
Other: (Mist) Mr. Huey, (Floss)
Tools: (Corner Chomper) WR Memory Keepers

Your card is PERFECT for my current mood... will email you the saga... Love the misting and what a delightful telephone, I'd like one in that color. (I say that laughing b/c we have no landline, so no telephones in our house).

Ca-YUTE!!! You are really rocking those mists lately - I haven't tried any as I suspect I'd end up with more mist on me than on my project. But you've mastered them. Amazing design, chica!!
