Scoot On


"Whatever it is you may be going through, whatever the challenge you may be facing, whatever it is that's stopping you from reaching your dreams and goals, it's just a matter of time that you will overcome these obstacles." (exert from here) Scoot on. Scoot on.



It's all about the Bold and the Beautiful at CAS-ual Fridays this week: create a clean and simple project featuring a black and pastel color combination. The sponsor this round is The Sweet Stamp Shop.







I paper pieced the cute scooter image from Scootin' By and colored the image lightly with marker. It was then placed on a chalkboard like piece of black cardstock that had been scored once, and all of that then was adhered to a base, that was also scored. A sweet little sentiment from the same set finished the card.


I hope that you have the chance to play along this week. As always, please visit the CAS-ual Fridays Blog and read about the challenge, sponsor and prize and rules, as well as view some great inspiration from Girl Fridays. While you are there, check out the design team call that was just announced this week!
